** If I understand the original poster correctly, like ''FunnyGames'', but a lot more subtle and without the hypocrisy or rewind button. And, of course, SuspenseHorror[=/=]third-person SurvivalHorror instead of physical [[{{Gorn}} Torture Gorn]].

* Alternatively, the Operator could be be the ghost of [[SiskelAndEbert Gene Siskel]]. They're both tall and slim, bald, and know how to dress sharply.

Nyarly, too, is often depicted as a tall, slender, tentacle-y man with mental powers and no face, but he's much more charismatic and confident -- [[BeverlyHillsCop the Eddie Murphy to Slendy's Judge Reinhold.]] At some point Nyarly and Slendy will team up [[TheyFightCrime to fight crime]]... or maybe just conduct mysterious experiments and terrorize film students.

Entry 51 shows us that Tim was kept in the abandoned building and Brian was left there too. Alex hasn't killed either of them, but The Operator, realising they're not Alex, has corrupted their minds instead of killing them and sent them after Alex too - as Maskies, they're Renfields of a sort. Perhaps The Operator doesn't want to kill Alex, but has some special link to him - during Alex's birthday as a child, he somehow brought The Operator into our dimension, and The Operator wants to go home (sort of like TheWatcherInTheWoods conclusion). The Maskies are trying to capture Alex to bring him to The Operator, and have started attacking Jay once they realised he was trying to help Alex - note that when Alex and Jay had their falling out, Masky!Tim stopped directly attacking Jay - Entry 50 has him running away instead of attacking. But in their state of mind, their also terrified of The Operator because of what he did to them, hence why they run away from him in the woods, and maybe even why Tim attacked Jay in entry #18 after he picked up the doll. Also, The Operator has a limited amount of energy in each attack - in entry 51, he went after Alex who ran, but exhausted his energy in corrupting Brian (which conveniently leaves him unconscious).

Perhaps masky is some kind of possessive force, taking over Tim and using him. He could also account for why totheark got footage of J and Slendy without having a camera (he might also be able to possess computers and upload his memories to youtube) and J's blank-outs, giving his victims an IncurableCoughOfDeath. (I'm well aware of how insane this sounds.)

to:

\n* That seems to be a general consensus that most works involving the mythos goes with, the either being that it acts as a ward to keep him away. Whether this is how it works in MH, however, is not said.





to:

** [[spoiler: According to the creators, the skull masked one was intended to be Jay, but the idea was eventually dropped. And with Brian turning out to be Hoody/totheark, this theory works pretty well.]] The only problem is, who are the other two?




to:

** [[spoiler: Later entries even have Tim specifically refer to himself as having been Masky as well.]]




to:

* [[spoiler:Jossed. The creators have stated several times that it wasn't meant to act as an origin story for the Operator, and was just Alex being creepy.]] Still, doesn't stop us from trying.




to:

* [[spoiler:Jossed.]]




to:

* If by Blasky you mean Hoody, [[spoiler: then absolutely Confirmed.]]




to:

* Somewhat Jossed. Considering there are several times when people other than Jay interact with Alex, it's safe to assume that Alex is indeed a real person. [[spoiler: Besides, if Alex was just a figment of Jay's imagination, then how was Alex able to keep on going after Jay was killed?]]




to:

** [[spoiler: As stated in said entry above, Confirmed.]]



[[WMG: Alex is the main villain of the series, TOTHEARK and the maskies are the good guys, but they are all being fucked with by the operator for his own amusement who has an unknown amount of influence on each character]]

either way if season 2 is the same length as season 1, we are drawing nearer to the end of the story.

to:

* This seems to be the case by Season 3, at least in the case of the Operator having been fucking with everyone and Alex being the {{Big Bad}}. totheark and Masky are still more anti-hero/self serving Chaotic Neutral entities, being on nobody's side and helping/hindering Jay whenever it's the most helpful to them.




to:

* While your {{Bat Deduction}} is flawless, sadly Jossed. [[spoiler: totheark is Hoody, AKA Brian.]]




to:

* [[FromBadToWorse Oh, shit.]]




to:

* [[spoiler: Confirmed. Alex gets stabbed in the chest in the penultimate entry. And if that didn't kill him, he then gets taken by the Operator.]]




to:

** [[spoiler:Well, it's confirmed NOW, but only because we SEE him get killed in #83.]]




to:

** Jossed. Alex comes back in Season 3.




to:

** The first, third, fifth, seventh, and eight ones are at least answered on-screen. In order, [[spoiler: Alex killed them and they got taken by the Operator, Hoody turns out to be Brian, Alex believes that by killing everyone linked to the Operator/Marble Hornets will keep the Operator's evil from spreading to more people (whether he was possessed by the Operator is left up to debate), the Operator kills and/or eats them, and totheark (at least one member of TTA, if the multiple user theory is true) is Hoody AKA Brian.]]





to:

* [[spoiler: It's confirmed that Tim had been stalked by the Operator since he was a child. Whether he had done the same to the others is never stated.]]




to:

* [[spoiler: Confirmed.]]




to:

* Absolutely Jossed. [[spoiler: Hoody is Brian.]]




to:

** [[spoiler: Confirmed in the last Entry.]]



This only applies after he was taken by the Operator, of course. In Entry 68, Alex punched Brian in the face and told him to wipe that smug grin off his face. Later, in Entry 86, when Alex shows Tim Brian's corpse, he appears to be smiling. Just imagine him having a perpetual grin on his face underneath his mask....

[[WMG: Tim died at the end of Entry #86, and Entry #87 didn't happen, at least in the way we saw it.]]

While Tim did indeed stop Alex and finally brought this whole ordeal to a close, he didn't survive from his wounds and bled out on top of the staircase inside Benedict Hall. His body and camera were eventually found, possibly by the police or someone else coming to investigate the very loud conflict coming from inside. They found the camera and, after viewing the footage, managed to link it back to the other entries.

Now of course, this raises the question: Who uploaded the footage? There are a few possibilities:
* Whoever found Tim and the camera uploaded it. Perhaps whoever found it [[AscendedFanboy was a fan of the series]], and after hearing a conflict in Benedict Hall and remembering the previous entries, went inside and found Tim and the footage. They uploaded it by either hacking into the Youtube account, or the less stupid option, Tim had the password for both accounts written down on a scrap of paper in his pocket.
* Jessica. If Entry #87 DID happen, then it happened prior to #86, and Jessica never believed Tim's story and decided to follow him. But by the time she got to Benedict Hall, the fight already happened and Tim was already dead. Jessica was able to upload it (going by the theory that Tim had the password on him), and made it look like the footage from before the fight happened after, so that nobody would know Tim died.
* The Operator. I don't know HOW, but it's an idea.

* This either makes ThePhantomTollbooth a whole lot more terrifying or MarbleHornets a bit less terrifying.

He started by uploading a video response to MarbleHornets; a video series that was just popular enough to get them some fame but not so famous as to cause super mega suspicion. The writers saw this and decided why not. That's why it's focuses on TTA so much recently as apposed to Slendie; TTA just wants more attention. Jay was serious when he said he didn't upload Entry ######.

There was the one that worked on the ''MarbleHornets'' set, and the one the other kept at bay, [[MeaningfulBackgroundEvent hiding]] [[BetterOnDVD in]] [[FreezeFrameBonus the background]], just... waiting...

Marblehornets, as a Youtube series, is essentially a message to attract people to the Cult of Slenderman, and also to spread fear of him. Anyone who has watched the videos is now a target. This is in keeping with the fact that J's twitter has now apparently been hijacked.

** What do we do when looking at animals in their natural habitat? Watch from afar and try to camouflage ourselves. What does he do in MarbleHornets? [[NothingIsScarier Watch from afar]], and [[HumanoidAbomination camouflage himself.]] He doesn't really want to hurt us, but he's so incomprehensible and wrong to human eyes that we can't help but be afraid of him.

Admittedly, only the last rational is directly supported by ''MarbleHornets'' itself, with the rest being from the original Website/SomethingAwful thread.

* I would agree as far as any series that strictly mentions Marble Hornets goes. For Example: EverymanHYBRID sees MarbleHornets, decides to dress someone up as Slenderman and stick him in the back of some workout videos, their troubles begin. Which means technically Jay is responsible for THEIR entire plight. If you add into that the delicacies of how each other series that ties in to EMH has to be in the same universe/realm as Marble Hornets (even if Troy and Joseph don't wanna do a crossover with them because they wanna be a stand-alone series) - TribeTwelve, and CompileTruth just to name a couple, and that's already at least a dozen people that Jay screwed up just because he went "Hm... You know what I should do with these videos that have a faceless abomination on them? POST THEM TO YOUTUBE. Think of the internet fame I could have!"

The most recent entries (#61 and #62) suggest that [[FanNickname “Hoody”]] is the primary agent for totheark, as these entries depict “Hoody” breaking into Tim’s house and depriving him of his medication, causing him to experience a seizure, run to Rosswood Park, and lapse into his Masked Tim [[SplitPersonality alter ego]]. The connection to totheark is cemented with the characteristic totheark style (hidden messages, weird sounds, raster-style fonts, etc). This footage appears on the MarbleHornets channel as “entry”. Jay discovers the new video upon regaining access to his accounts (he had been locked out of both YouTube and Twitter). He marks the video unlisted, then adds captions and reposts it as Entry #61.
