* ColbertBump: Creator/RogerEbert praised Marble Hornets on his Twitter account. This was nearly enough to give Slender Man enough notability to stay on Wikipedia.

* AlternativeCharacterInterpretation: A fair number of fan theories involve Slendy himself [[DarkIsNotEvil not being evil or malevolent]]. Either he's a lonely figure who unintentionally curses those he comes into contact with in his efforts to make friends, a harbinger of doom, or even an incompetent guardian trying (and failing) to save people.

** In the pictures, looking for Slendy can be more like reading a WheresWaldo book than a Creepypasta

*** And [[http://creepypasta.wikia.com/wiki/Interview_with_the_Slenderman this]] one has a TomatoSurprise at the end - [[spoiler: "he's" a ''woman'']].



** [[http://browse.deviantart.com/?qh=§ion=&q=slender+woman#/d2jquty This comic]] provides one possible explanation. It... doesn't really make things any better.

* VisualEffectsOfAwesome: If it's a video-based series, and Slendy has CombatTentacles, you ''know'' this is going to be either [[DarthWiki/SoBadItsHorrible a terrible series]] or [[CrowningMomentOfAwesome the]] [[NightmareFuel scariest]] [[CrowningMomentOfAwesome thing you'll ever see on video.]] Examples include: ''WebVideo/TribeTwelve'' and the unfortunately deleted ''[=AKoolStick=]'', which had the unique scene that is ''[[HolyShitQuotient jumping Slender Man.]]''

** As of February 2013, it's gotten bad enough that adding new Slenderman stories(or stories with knock-offs of him) is banned from the Creepypasta Wiki.

Added DiffLines:

* FollowTheLeader:
** If there's a video blog series that features a project being abandoned because Slender Man got involved, you can thank WebVideo/MarbleHornets for that. If there's a written blog that gradually takes on a more insane tone after Slendy gets involved, culminating in [[DecoyProtagonist the current blogging character being replaced by a friend who is not so deeply entrenched in the madness]], you can thank Blog/JustAnotherFool for that.
** Also from Marble Hornets: Video distortion occurring whenever Slendy or one of his agents is close at hand, sometimes going as far as happening whenever he comes into frame (it's a useful tool since distortion can be used to hide many of the obviously fake aspects of whatever prop or costume is being used in that series).
** The Operator Symbol, once again originating from Marble Hornets, which has become a central symbol in the mythos.
** Slendersickness: Warning, prolonged exposure to Tall Dark and Faceless can lead to chronic respiratory problems and related symptoms.
** Some mysterious (often masked) yet apparently human figure related to Slender Man in some way (whether or not he is an actual agent of Slendy is debatable since WebVideo/MarbleHornets never explicitly states that this is the case). Extra points if the series is a vlog and the figure in question creates a separate Youtube account for posting video responses.
** Unsure if this was worked out beforehand, but when Nessa of [[http://exitnight-nessa.blogspot.com/ Enter Light]] was [[spoiler: taken by proxies and eventually turned into a slenderpuppet]], several other bloggers immediately began posting about being attacked.
