This is a "Wild Mass Guess" entry, where we pull out all the sanity stops on theorizing. The regular entry on this topic is elsewhere. Please see this programme note.
Sherlok Holms
Yes, there is now a WMG page for this.

The plot centers around an Evil Versus Evil dynamic.
The readers are "told" that Sherlok and Ben are the good guys. They go around aresting creepypasta villains. Nothing off about that, except perhaps the fact that the Sidekick is one as well, though that could easily be explained away. However, the most recent arc pits the detective duo against Jadusable, the very hero to Ben's villain. Within the context of the story so far, this may indicate a case of Black and Gray Morality, as Ben being genuinely on the "good side" can no longer be handwaved. Therefore, Sherlok is a Villain Protagonist, and the "criminals" he and Ben face are also villains, save for the latest, who qualifies as a Hero Antagonist up against, well, a couple of villains.

Or, for an alternative and much more terrifying possibility: Jadusable really is the bad guy, and the entire Ben Drowned saga is a massive case of Unreliable Narrator.

Sherlok is really the old man who sold Jadusable the game in the first place.
