* SpiritualSuccessor: Basically ''WebVideo/MarbleHornets'' in video game form.



** In one hand he either turns his victims into proxy minions, or he impales them onto a tree and rips out their organs and puts them in plastic bags.

** In The Arrival you can't help but get this impression as you explore the house in the prologue.
*** That's because it's true.



** Expanded upon in The Arrival. [[spoiler: On getting all the pages, you start running through the area, jumping between places, before finally being caught and waking up in a separate part of the woods. Whilst this puts you nearer to your objective, it also means you have to deal with Slendy and one of his proxies, who stalks the nearby tunnels. ]]
** Taken even further with [[spoiler: the hard mode ending to the Arrival. There's a chance your character lived, but so what? That only means Slendy is free to wreak havoc on you and anyone else you bring him in contact with. Congratulations you've made Kate and CR's sacrifices pointless. Nothing ever ends.]]



** The mine level in The Arrival basically takes the claustrophobia of the abandoned building and creates an entire level based on it. It's also worth noting that in the mines [[spoiler:Slender Man isn't the only one hunting you.]]



* DarkerAndEdgier: Not like the original game was all sunshine and flowers, but the sequel/remake removes many off the goofier elements that some players may have found NightmareRetardant. Slender Man's model no longer resembles a blow-up doll, some of the more bizarre structures have been replaced with realistic ones, and the environments feel more like places you would expect for people to actually visit.
** [[spoiler:Not to mention the ending. Oh, God, the ending...]]



** [[TakeAThirdOption And of course, you can choose to not go into the woods at all by not playing the game.]]
* DownerEnding:
** [[spoiler:The Arrival strongly implies that the only way for Slender Man to lose would be for everyone who knows him... to die. It's made worse if you count [[BrainwashedAndCrazy the]] [[MoreThanMindControl proxies,]] which [[InvincibleVillain are definitely not dying any time soon.]]]]
** [[spoiler:Made worse by the hard mode ending which implies the chance that the player character lived.]]



* KaizoTrap: In The Arrival, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UbgJ9F8iLAw&t=8m44s the proxy can jump you while riding the elevator.]]



* MindScrew: The secret level in The Arrival is nothing but this, so take everything in that level with a grain of salt.



** Changed in the remake, where it has a full-fledged story, complete with set pieces and named characters.

** Changed in [[VideoGame/SlenderTheArrival the remake, remake]], where it has a full-fledged story, complete with set pieces and named characters.



** As of Slender: The Arrival, he can walk whilst you're looking at him. Slowly.



** Played straight with Slendy in The Arrival, but averted with the proxy. You can take a few hits from it before you die.



* TheScream: [[spoiler:Kate]] lets one loose at the end of the house level in The Arrival, once you reach her room and pick up a drawing of Slender Man.

** '''Daylight mode:''' Slender Man chases you during the day. Once you collect all 8 pages, [[spoiler: you wake up at night..]] You get this by completing normal mode.

* FollowTheLeader: There have been quite a few games released that use an engine similar to the one present in the game, creating scenarios where the player has to run away from the Slender Man in other locations, such as an AbandonedHospital. All things considered, [[TropesAreTools this is not a bad thing]].
** One game on [[XboxLiveArcade Xbox LIVE Indie Games]] titled ''White Noise'' that uses a gameplay similar scenario to ''Slender'' except you're running from a demonic creature that has no eyes while collecting tape recorders instead.
* ForebodingArchitecture: Pretty much everything in this game that isn't a tree or Slendy is this.
** And even then, those sawed-off trees mentioned above are, at the very least, pretty unnerving.

* [[spoiler:BittersweetEnding]]: In later versions of the game, if you got all eight pages, [[spoiler:the Slender Man would still find the PlayerCharacter...''but'' she would wake up in the forest the following morning. It's ambiguous whether or not she's really in the clear, though.]]

He certainly wasn't kidding. On December 23rd, a teaser trailer was released for the commercial expansion ''VideoGame/SlenderTheArrival''. The game, itself a remake of the original, was released on March 28 exactly at midnight. The ''WebVideo/MarbleHornets'' crew [[OhCrap wrote the story for the game]]. You take control as Lauren, a friend of Kate's (the protagonist of the original game), who visits the latter's house just after the Slender Man attacked. She traverses through the scenery (which was remastered quite epically), finding notes of Kate and her friend CR, all the while avoiding the Slender Man and his proxy, a hooded, masked chaser.
