The Slender Man is the secondary antagonist in EverymanHYBRID. He is an unknown entity of possible supernatural origin who seems to be stalking the main characters of EverymanHYBRID. He, or it, has the appearance of an abnormally tall, thin man with no hair and no face, clad in a black business suit and tie. At times there are also long, black wispy tentacles sprouting out of his back or shoulders. Although his motivations are unclear, he seems to have a detrimental effect on the mental and/or physical health of all who come into contact with him, such as paranoia, insanity and a cough. He also seems to have an adverse affect on video cameras and other audio/video or electrical equipment, causing the picture to become filled with static or cut out and the sound to stop or fill with feedback, humming, or strange sirens. The sounds of children are also associated with his appearances. These effects are brought about seemingly without any overt action by the Slender Man.
The Slender Man's relationship with HABIT seems to be one of animosity, as shown in the Twitter fight, (this assumes that Slender Man is in fact the source of the lowercase Tweets); however recent posts by HABIT on Damsel's former blog have confirmed that HABIT and Slender Man have worked together in the past. If they are still working together or have gone their separate ways is still a mystery. HABIT's relationship with The Rake is unclear but many speculate that the Rake acts as an enforcer to HABIT. In the video Jessie Jeff confirms that Slender Man acted directly to prevent the Rake from attacking the boys any further after the events of Jim Thorpe.
Slender Man seems to emit Sigma Radiation, which can be detected using the Black Box Device. The presence of this radiation ties him into the Iteration Theory, along with Jeff, Vince, Evan and Steph.
The Slender Man in EMH is also very sadistic in nature and overall at his most malicious within the Slenderverse. He/It has been shown to have a preference for passively watching people from the sidelines, either from a distance or with uncomfortably close proximity. It has not been shown to actively attack anyone, as of yet. The extent to which it is possibly engineering events is, however, uncomfirmed. Presumably, he drives his victims to madness, and allows these individuals to do his dirty work for him as Proxies. In fact, the Slender Man's main apparent modus operandi, and indeed his only apparent discernable goal at all, is to observe people in unsettling and/or frightening ways, and in such a manner as to drive them to the brink of sanity and beyond. Any other goals or ambitions he/it may have are as yet almost completely indecipherable and open to speculation and interpretation. While not actually observed thus far being openly aggressive or physically attackng anyone, Slender Man has, however, been shown to defend himself quite well. In Ashen Waste he easily inflicts severe injuries upon Evan during their brief alterations. It’s heavily implied in one of the earlier corenthal documents that slenderman is very selfish. This is proven when the Fairmount iteration of Vinny says “man is very greedy”. The man most likely referring to slender man. Slenderman also mostly treats Vinnie, Evan, Jeff, and Steph like property and treats their misery as like a game without any remorse. During Habit’s monologue to Jeff before killing him & him and Vinny’s constant interactions; Slenderman finds Jeff to be his least favorite of the EMH crew due to not being able to control him possibly because of his constant defiance of the being.And kidnapped his girlfriend Jessalyn and killed her as an attempt to break Jeff. However, in Tape 3; Vinny seems to be Slenderman’s favorite due to his role as the voyeur and basically spreading his image by having everyone keep on watching/listening. This implies that Slenderman’s primary goal is to spread his image in order to gain more victims. Also during the video “Lexi”, Habit reveals to Vinny that the reason that he didn’t kill the EMH crew was because they were insiders and were basically his property. And that he kills outsiders that aren’t the main EMH crew if they get in his way. Such as with Jessalyn and Lexi. When Slenderman does actually kill people, he normally kills them in slow,cruel,painful,& sadistic ways such as his murder of Jessalyn and Alex who according to Evan’s actor Evan Jennings during the first Q&A EMH vid, brutally got their arms and heads ripped off slowly and painfully. Overall we can assume that Slenderman in EMH is very spiteful, sadistic, and very power hungry.
In some of the earliest accounts of Slender Man activity, there were anecdotes of corpses hanging in trees with their internal organs removed and placed within bags. The EverymanHYBRID crew encountered similar circumstances in Joke's Over, where the crew came across several garbage bags suspended from trees, which leaked what appeared to be blood when cut open. Likewise, those same accounts refer to fires and buildings being burned, as happened at the hospital where Stephanie was being kept. Trees and forests in which disturbing, unusual, and possibly supernatural phenomena have been reported are also a recurring theme, as is the abduction and/or disappearance of children, both of which have been either directly observed by the EverymanHYBRID crew or have been found referrenced in documents discovered by the crew.
Appearing in many videos throughout the series, The Administrator who is the main antagonist of the series (alongside The Observer) is best described as an abnormally tall figure in a black with a pale, featureless face and, occasionally, tentacles sprouting from its back. It is unknown what the Slender Man wants, but he appears to be following Noah and, before that, Milo and his mother. Initially, it can be inferred from the submission videos that Slender Man had been stalking Milo since at least May 2008.
After Milo's death, Noah uploaded the contents of the tape from Milo's visit to Youtube, resulting in his discovery of the Slender Man. The Slender Man is represented by what has become known as the Operator symbol, an O with an X through it, meant to represent the Slender Man's lack of a face. The Slender Man is the leader of a group known as the Collective, a group of powerful beings that exist outside of the normal laws of time and space. It can be inferred that the Slender Man possesses god-like powers and omnipotency, some of which it bestows upon The Collective.
According to the video My Grandfather Karl, a similar creature known as "Der Großmann", or "The Great/Tall Man", was the subject of a legend in Germany. The creature would kidnap children who ran away into the Black . Karl Maxwell encountered it when it attacked a Nazi . According to Karl, the same creature appears in Noah's videos.
Slender Man tends to have effects on electronic equipment, such as audio and video recording devices. It is unknown if the effect is intentional or natural, though comments by the Observer of Noah's Formspring have suggested the latter. It could be due to the sigma radiation that he emits. Slender Man also has the ability to teleport at will, creating much distortion before he does so. It is noted that there is a consistent pattern of the video clipping at the bottom of the screen before he shows up.
Slenderman is very unique in Tribe Twelve as unlike some of his other appearances within the slenderverse, he isn’t outright malicious or have any malice intent and seems to be driven by pure instinct instead of genuine malevolent or benevolent intent. According to Adam Rosner, the creator of Tribe Twelve; The Administrator only wants and doesn’t have a conscience and implies that The Administrator’s want of the journal is what makes The Administrator have no conscience. It’s possible that Slenderman possibly sees what he is doing as good and seems to not be able to fully understand the unfortunate pain and suffering he has caused to Noah and his family members.
DarkHarvest00The Tall Man, or Gorr'Rylaehotep is the secondary antagonist of Dark Harvest and the bigger bad of the series. He appears with several differences in DarkHarvest00 than in most of the other ARGs. In DarkHarvest00, Slender Man is nine feet tall, with no face and a black as usual. While in most ARGs he appears with a flawless, straight posture, the DarkHarvest00 Slender Man appears often hunched over, with twitching limbs. It can also be noted that in most ARG's, Slender Man only moves through Slenderwalking and teleportation, where as in DarkHarvest00 he sometimes physically walks with his own two legs. The best view of Slender Man comes from the video Rainwood Memorial . As per the original mythos, Slender Man is a murderous being who steals organs and is responsible for the death of Greg in Greg's Final Log. Slenderman in this series doesn’t seem to have been given a definitive motive which might imply that Slenderman is driven by malicious murderous intent and doesn’t genuinely care about The Order as scene in the crossover vids with Tribe Twelve (in Log #25: Meeting With Noah Maxwell and The Order on Noah’s channel) where Slenderman throws a order member onto their car while they tried to get away. And also killed several other Order members throughout the series.
The Slender Man is the overall second antagonist of the series (alongside Habit) and is the overall bigger bad of the series. The Slender man often talks and interferes with Michael in strange ways. Silently observes character interactions. His motives are currently unknown. He is somehow associated with a Grandfather Clock which was broken by Michael in his childhood.
Patrick Andersen, Michael's split personality, is implicated by HABIT to be a being that has existed for years only to provide bait to the Slender Man, which may explain the death of Stormy, his brother Shaun's girlfriend.
The Man in the Suit is the overall secondary antagonist and bigger bad of Stan Frederick. This incarnation of the Slender Man is far more intelligent and malevolent than the others, as he harvested Stan's younger brother Erik, and later on their parents, leaving Stan an orphan at a young age. He later corrupted Stan, Susan and Connor into working for him as their only way to survive. Stan and Susan realized their wrong doings, changing their ways, but it was too late for Connor. The guilt and regret Stan felt due to his previous actions led to him becoming a paranormal investigator, as a way to help other people and redeem himself.
Slender Man is also able to make his victims hallucinate as seen in the video 27. Film Student where he made Stan hallucinate children he had harvested for Slender Man when he was young. The series also created and introduced the concept of "Corruptelams", which are remnants of the people Slender Man or other monsters take, essentially ghosts. Corruptelams often take the appearance of what they loved the most when they were alive, (the woman in the video 32. Corruptelam taking the form of her son, Erik taking the form of Idolon, a superhero he created, and Stan taking the form of Erik.) It's implied that Corruptelams have the power to mess with technology much like Slender Man.
KeratinGardenThe Ajax Monster, is seen various times in the background of Story Parker's videos and is the overall main antagonist of the series. At one point, he is encountered by Story, causing her to have a mental breakdown. Whether or not this was his influence upon her, is left ambiguous. Eventually, another entity known as The Black begins to stalk Story as well. Its relation with the Slender Man is unknown.
It is commonly theorized among the viewers that the Slender Man seems to be protecting Story, as she is never harmed by his presence. Xander Shaw states that Story, being the recent iteration of several women who died over the years using Ajax's products, has something in her that the Slender Man wants.
A Faceless King is the Bigger Bad of MyDarkJournal, being the corrupting force upon the protagonist villain, Victor. During the 1930's, in Germany, Victor and his family began hearing stories from gypsies about an entity called Der Chirurg that came from the Black Forest. They said that they had been selected for "his lottery", and he had planned "experiments" for Victor and Geneva's children. Victor's journal also states that Nazi soldiers had "paved the way" for his arrival.
Victor's wife was brutally murdered during the holocaust, causing him to make a deal with the Slender Man in exchange for eternal servitude, that the Slender Man takes revenge against the Nazi camp and brings his wife, Geneva, back from the dead. MyDarkJournal shows the torment that Victor and his wife bring upon people today for the Slender Man.
The Slender Man from CaughtNotSleeping seems to originate from the original legend from the SomethingAwful forums. He also serves as the primary antagonist. His motivations are as of yet unclear.
His presence has also been known to cause physical symptoms in his victims, such as coughing, paranoia, memory loss, and in the case of Caught, sleeplessness. Rarely presenting a real physical danger, Slender Man seems to stalk his victims until his aura causes them to go insane. If this is purposeful or not is, again, unclear. It has been theorized that The Slender Man has no interest in killing Caught but perhaps instead punishing him for some unremembered indiscretion. He has shown himself to be capable of physical violence towards the protagonists, such as in 26 2326916 1115262422 but Caught has also been successful in warding him off with a variety of methods, most notably a small jar of liquid given to him by 1AmTheHelp3r. The aura The Slender Man puts off has been said to be less present around Caught's Apartment.
The Angel's Game/APCollectionIn The Angel's Game, The Father is an all-powerful supernatural being who is the source of the Dimensional Bleeding taking place in various universes. He appears as a very tall, thin man in a black suit and tie with an entirely featureless face. He has also been known to grow tentacle-like appendages from his back which have been referred to as cracks in space and time. Although he did not appear during the events of the Angel's Game, another entity, known as The Creature, took on a very similar form.
The Slender Man created two Riftlings, the Dweller and the Creature, inside of the Rift. As such, the two entities, as well as those that split off from them, refer to him as "the Father". In the past that the two beings lived through, the Slender Man appeared before the Dweller after the Creature murdered Carrie Miller and took him to Joshua Rallus.
Afraid At Home/StargazerThe incarnation of the Slender Man
From these two series is a pretty unique one. Unlike most of his incarnations, he is more human-like and has a more malevolent nature. He escaped from an interdimensional portal and killed the main character's parents and even tried to use Kyle's body as a vessel for his own amusement, which he unfortunately succeeds. He even goes as far as to do the same thing all over again but this time with another Kyle from another reality.
In the sequel, he is even more malevolent, as he tries to ruin his own brother's life against the wish of his father, a cosmic god called WATCHER, who in the past, sent him to an interdimensional prison as a punishment for what what he did to his brothers and sisters, he was eventually released from his prison by Kyle's father, believing it was a bridge to another world.
RealMadnessXIn RealMadnessX, The Slender Man is an extradimensional entity from unknown origins, although it is implied that he is the ruler and possible creator of the mirror world know as the Empty City. His alignments are currently unknown, since he saved Andy's life twice, first from The Director and later from Andrew.
An easy way to summon him is by drawing The Operator Symbol, which Andy uses to his own advantage.
Only known as The Giant, he serves as the true driving force behind the events of the series, with his copycat proxy know as Teacher acting as a pawn. His connection with Christopher is currently unknown although its implied that he sees himself as the hunter and Chris as the prey.
He is also very powerful compared to his other incarnations, he can cause minor earthquakes with ease, as shown in the video everythings o.k., he causes a earthquake just by stomping on the ground.
The Candlestick Man is one of the primary malevolent forces in TalesFromTheSpidersWeb.
He is presumably the driving force behind the events of the series, first being seen by Madison White, and later the rest of the characters. What he is and what he wants is one of the bigger mysteries to the protagonists, as well as his relations with the other masked entities in the series, such as Clowny or Sage. He is referred to as "the tall fucker", or "the faceless fucker" by David Evans.
At first, The Candlestick Man is rarely seen in the beginning of the series, although, during the times hes visible, David will react to himself and acts like he doesn't see him. He likely thought of him as just a hallucination of some sort. According to his description in The Devil Is In The Details, he can't see the distortion in his videos.
Similiar to MyDarkJournal, the Slender Man is the Bigger Bad of the series. Prior to the events of the series, he infected Ellie with Slender Sickness, leading to her slowly turning into one of his proxies. He ocassionally appears on screen, due to the gas masked man know as The Anti-Body being the main threat of the first videos.
Although not directly attacking the main characters, Ellie acts as his own henchwoman.
SlenderHauntingThe Slender Man is the first of the multiple antagonists stalking Jack and the leader of an interdimensional proxy-like group know as The Forgiven.
Due to the lack of proxy appearances, he has more screen time than other antagonists. It is implied by The Forgiven that he considers himself to be a peacemaker, saving people from the eminent destruction by recruiting them to The Forgiven.
OurInfernoThe Slender Man is the main antagonist of the series, not much is know about him or why he's stalking the uploader and Jess. But it is implied that he has a connection to the uploader's Naval days or even the epic poem, Divine Comedy, made by Dante Alighieri.
Due to the possible connection with Divine Comedy, it is very likely that Slender Man could be a demon or a nephilim.
AntediluvianOneThe Tall Man in the Dark is the secondary antagonist of AO, often seen motionless or stalking the protagonists.
He appears to Raymond and Jack after a trip to a tree farm and has been stalking Ray ever since, eventually leading to his turning. He then sets his sights on Jack, appearing to him multiple times even before he disappeared.
In a later upload by Ray, he is identified as The Devil himself (as well as in the description), causing a flood that washes the town from the face of the earth.
Dark DaysThe Slender Man is the main antagonist of the series, He is responsible for the "eternal night" event that started in February 28, 2015 and lasted until March 31st, 2015.

Val was devastated by this and decided to seek for more information which led to a fight between Slender Man and the Rake of who would take her first. In the end Val chose to go with Slender Man so she could see her sister again.
The Slender Man is the main antagonist of the series. The protagonist's boyfriend Roger became obsessed with Slender Man watching videos containing him and even going on Forums. Not soon after that Roger started getting stalked by Slender Man.
