** Remember the [[spoiler:[[http://i51.photobucket.com/albums/f384/axels_red_rose/fourmaskies.png three other masked persons]]]] from season one? We don't.

** As of early in Entry #26 there appear to be [[http://i51.photobucket.com/albums/f384/axels_red_rose/fourmaskies.png four different Maskies.]]



** In Entry #51, Alex says that the footage is to be from the main character's old elementary school that burned down, which is the premise of the entry "I'm Okay" in EverymanHYBRID.



** In Entry #70, the Operator's stance and the way it affects the camera are very reminiscent of the character's video game counterpart from ''VideoGame/{{Slender}}''.



* SpiritualSuccessor: {{Everyman HYBRID}} has been called this.
** ''MH'' itself is like this to ''Film/TheBlairWitchProject''. Think about it.



* WhamEpisode: In a series like Marble Hornets, entries are extremely polarized between 'wham' and 'filler'.

* VomitDiscretionShot: Played with in an interesting way in Entry #86: [[spoiler:While Tim is in the midst of [[HeroicBSOD breaking down]] after savagely stabbing Alex, he doubles over to puke.]] Now, because this time a ''handheld'' camera is being used instead of a [[spoiler:chest-mounted]] one, we don't see it. What we ''do'' end up seeing [[spoiler:, thanks to Tim's arm swinging down in the process, is that the Operator took Alex away]].

* OffscreenTeleportation: Possibly one of the Operator's abilities. Demonstrated in Entry #26, when [[spoiler: Alex sees his girlfriend playing with one of his old cameras...which calls the Operator to their location.]] Entry #54 suggests it might not be teleportation at all - he just moves ''[[FlashStep really, really fast]]'' when no-one's looking.

** ''Intermission'' has some drawings presumably belonging to Totheark, depicting trees and...''something'' lying at the base of one of the trees.

* KarmaHoudini: [[spoiler:The Operator. [[JustifiedTrope Justified]] by the fact that it's basically impossible to truly destroy or punish him. The only hope is that letting him take Alex finally satisfied him and if it didn't then Tim will have to kill anyone else allowing his existence.]]



** In Entry #68, [[spoiler: totheark]] moves the camera around in a very paranoid fashion. He doesn't find anything...[[spoiler: until he turns back to the door and sees Alex charging straight at him.]]

* IdiotBall: Even when it becomes clear that there are ''several'' people stalking and possibly trying to kill him, Jay continues to telegraph his next move over Website/YouTube. [[spoiler: This comes back and bites him on the ass in Entry #52, when Alex threatens to kill Jay at gunpoint for posting the videos and incriminating him, amongst other reasons and in Entry #59 where Tim explodes at him after finding the videos and refuses to ever speak to him again]]. He also returns to the same haunted house multiple times, often at night, and has a habit of wandering off into the woods despite nothing good EVER happening to people who do that in this series.
** [[spoiler:Alex's holding Jay and Jessica at gunpoint in Entry #52, and you'd think that he ''wants'' to pull that trigger, but he ''just...keeps...talking''. All of the stalling allows Tim/Masky to sneak up behind him and pull a DeusExMachina.]]
