Slenderman



Estimated reading time — 16 minutes

If only you hadn’t looked back. Though it was autumn the day had seemed long and the brief walk toward home short. As the sunlight began to fade you and your two friends left the playground behind and trudged reluctantly home, knowing that you would be forced to pick up the games and conversations the next day. The next day, that never came. If only you hadn’t looked back. But you had. 

Turning just for a moment, you had glanced back toward the treeline. Seen the fingers of their branches clawing up toward the sky and beside them, the figure. 

At first you’d thought you must be mistaken, that your eyes in the hazy blur of twilight were playing tricks on you, but no. When you looked again ‘he’ was still there. Taller than any man could be, thinner even the willowy branches that extended ever upward from the trees. He loomed in the distance, like the shadow of some horrible dark truth and you knew instantly that you had to look away, that if you didn’t tear your eyes from that blank featureless face then soon the blank would wash over you, become you and you would walk slowly but surely, as if pulled by some magnetic force toward him, toward him though you feared him, though you were scared of his unnatural height, the aching  blank whiteness of his face, the arms that seemed to stretch towards you and the slithering tentacles behind. 

You turned. Screwing up your eyes, telling, willing yourself not to look, not to see, not to give in and go to him. You scream to the others telling them the same, telling them not to look. But as you open your eyes you realise, they had already looked. They were already gone. 

Possibly the most famous Creepypasta character of all time and certainly the one that has crossed most frequently into mainstream media, The Slender Man also known as Slenderman, is a character borne of a variety of earlier influences, but which itself represents an evolution in the uses and development of folklore. 

Violent real life events linked to the Slenderman character increased it’s infamy and even led to a ‘Moral panic’ based around the possible negative influences and danger that the fictional character posed to children. 

Slenderman Appearance 

Though adaptation and modification by various authors means that Slenderman’s appearance can vary somewhat depending upon the source, the most common features remain the same. 

The character is usually depicted as an abnormally tall humanoid, usually wearing a dark suit and tie. Slenderman’s face is almost always completely featureless and often either white or a pale grey, though in some depictions this ‘blank’ face does feature an animalistic mouth. 

Slenderman is often said to be able to extend or stretch  his limbs, particularly his arms at will, and either has tentacles protruding, just visible from his back or has tentacle-like appendages in place of his arms. 

The character commonly inhabits liminal spaces, such as the entrance to woods and forest or areas of abandoned ground on the outskirts of more populated areas. 

Whilst there are a wide variety of Slenderman stories out there, much of the character’s effectiveness comes from the fact that there is no single definitive version, the initial posts that introduced the character being only fragmentary quotes linked to an image rather than an actual short story or complete narrative. 

Much like his appearance however, though the details alter some elements seem to remain as constants, such as the character appearing by woods or forests, enticing children away from their parents and friends never to be seen again. Another common trope that the Slenderman exerts an influence upon the victims making them the perpetrators of crimes or violent actions. The character has also been said to cause illness (particularly a cough know as ‘slender sickness) and to induce those who encouter him to suicide. These latter features, namely incitement to violence or suicide became more prevelant and commonly associated with the character in a case of art imitatinbg life after real life violent events or cases of attempted suicide were linked to the character 

Origins

Despite some media outlets adding to the aura of the Slenderman mythos by claiming that the figure’s origins are unclear, in fact the character’s origin is easily traceable. 

Slenderman in his original form was created by Eric Knudson under the alias Victor Surge. Knudson was responding to a call on Something Awful, for posters to contribute digitally altered photographs that would then serve as the basis for new mythologies or stories.

 Knudson’s effort, posted on June 10 2009 showed groups of teenagers and children with the now familiar figure of Slenderman standing in the background. At first glance the images seem normal but the figure’s anomalous size and featureless face once noticed give the pictures an eerie and unsettling feeling. Alongside the images, Knudson provided small snippets of out of context  text purported to be witness accounts  that give hints about the scenes depicted and their relation to the anomalous figure of the Slender man. 

By attaching short snippets of text with his images Knudson transformed the lone image into the first Slenderman story, albeit in an nonlinear and fragmentary form. Following this initial appearance, the slenderman character was then picked up by other users, who either fit him into their own narratives or wrote short accounts of alleged encounters with the character, sculpting as they did some of the features recognised today.  

With each new detail and new account, posters helped in building a mythos around the character that because of its viral scope and myriad of conflicting details and accounts did not retain a ‘canon’ version and this process happened fast. 

The day after Knudson’s post, a user named Leechcode five posted a photo with a backstory featuring slenderman, by 14th June a user name TrenchMaul had used Slenderman in his own story. A user known as Thoreau-Up posted a story about a figure in Germany who stalked children on the edge of the forest, providing an invented historical reference point for the character. 

On June 20th of the same year Slenderman became the subject of a youtube video series,based upon an earlier Something Awful post by user Troy Wagner. The series which alleged to detail interaction =s or discoveries about the slenderman made whilst working on a film project named Marble Hornets. This series of videos was support by a twitter feed and a second Youtube channel allowed the character to move from being a text, image and forum based phenomenon to being an ARG, with the character now being referred to, discussed and modified across a number of different platforms and modalities by an ever growing number of contributors. 

SlenderMan Creepypasta Story

After waking up with a jolt, the girl laid in bed a few seconds longer. Reaching over to switch on her bedside lamp, she tried to remember exactly what had stolen her sweet slumber away. When she couldn’t, the brunette swung her legs over the side of the bed and heaved herself up. Checking the time on her phone, she snorted when she saw it was midnight- the witching hour. Knowing that sleep would only evade her, she left her bedroom for the kitchen, a good cup of coffee on her mind. As she passed by her front door, a chill spread like liquid fire down her spine. It’s only winter, she told herself, focusing again on the coffee plan. Measuring out scoops, water, and preparing her cup kept her occupied, but as the dark liquid boiled, she had nothing left to keep her mind from wandering off. The chill returned and she couldn’t help but glance behind her to the front door. It stood there innocently enough, just like always. The dead bolt was still in place and she could see nothing amiss with it. Turning back to her coffee, she did her best to forget about the feeling. With her cup in hand, she started back towards her bedroom. As she walked by the front door, she decided that a quick glance out of the peep hole would help calm her restless mind. The chill worsened with each step she took towards the door and further away from the safety and warmth of her blankets. She pressed her empty hand against the cold, metal door and took a deep breath before leading her eye to the peep hole. At first, she could only see an inky blackness and somehow seemed to swirl in itself. When she blinked in surprise, the void melted away. She wished it hadn’t. In it’s place, there stood what she could only guess was once a man. The limbs were long and inhumanly awkward, with bulky joints branching off into several arms, not unlike the branches of a tree. The creature was draped in a black suit, somehow making the thing more nightmarish to her. The icing on the proverbial cake, however, was what passed as the hellish thing’s face. It was as though her mind blurred the ghastly visage to spare itself further shock and horror. She shoved herself away from the door with the hand still pressed against it. The scalding mug of coffee fell, the liquid burning her bare legs as she fell backwards and tried to crawl away from the door. She knew, somehow, that her mind hadn’t been playing tricks on her. As she crab walked away from the door, she watched as tendrils as black as the void she first saw snake around through the cracks. The girl was trapped between the instinct to flee and the gut feeling to not turn her back on the door. When the door jolted, the urge to flee overcame her and she slipped in the burning liquid as she tried to make it back to her room. She knew deep down that she was trapping herself in a corner, but she had to get away from the door. The girl was halfway down the hallway when she heard the previously locked door creak open. She screamed and slipped into a wall, cracking her chin on it and stunning her. After that, there was only blackness. * * * * * “Nicole?” a warm, male voice snapped the woman out of her trance. As she turned around, she was met by one of her sister’s doctor’s. She nodded, not sure if she should say anything, or even if she could find her voice if she did have something to say. That morning, she had gotten an urgent phone call from the hospital, saying that her sister, Lindsay, was there. Before they had even let her see her, the doctor’s had pulled her off to the side and insisted that they talk to her about what might have happened. Phrases like ‘self-inflected’ and ‘assault’ had been thrown around and Nicole felt her mind reel. She still hadn’t fully understood what they had been saying until she saw Lindsay with her own eyes. Her little sister had a bandage wrapped around her head, covering both of her ears as well as her eyes. They said it was to keep her now deadened eyes from drying out and to try to keep infection out of the wounds Lindsay had made to her ears. The doctors had guessed that either she or someone else had jammed a pencil into them to keep her off balance or to deafen herself against something. There was the mix of first and second degree burns on her hands, legs, and feet, from what was assumed to be the coffee her neighbors found slipped all over the entry to her apartment. As Nicole walked into her sister’s hospital room the first time, she thought she had spied the silhouette of a man in the window. That, she knew, was impossible. Her sister’s room was on the third story of the hospital. CREDIT: Anonymous the slenderman slender man at the park Slenderman with girl

 

Behavior

Much of the fascination with Slender Man is rooted in the overall aura of mystery that he is wrapped in. Despite the fact that it is rumored he kills children almost exclusively, it is difficult to say whether or not his only objective is slaughter. Often times it is either reported or recorded that he can be found in sections of woods, and these generally tend to be suburban. He also has been reported seen with large groups of children, as many photographs portray. It is commonly thought that he resides in woods and forests and preys on children. He seems unconcerned with being exposed in the daylight or captured in photos. It is often thought as well that he enjoys stalking people who become overly paranoid about his existence, purposefully giving them glimpses of himself in order to further frighten them. For this reason, it seems like Slenderman very much enjoys psychologically torturing his victims. He also often appears to float or drift around rather than walk, which suggest the possibility of him being an ethereal being rather than a creature or a man. This would also explain why he is able to remain mobile in spite of his poorly proportioned body.

Even though Slender Man was fabricated on SomethingAwful forums (or was he?), some people have already claimed sightings. He is seen mostly at night peering into open windows and walks out in front of lone motorists on secluded roads. His main intentions appear to be kidnapping children, as when he is seen near them in photographs, they usually disappear shortly afterward. The Slender Man has also inspired many stories such as those of Marble Hornets. In the end, though, his purpose remains unknown. An interesting take on Slender Man by a pasta member who is relying on the Marble Hornets series for evidence/facts:

“There has been a big misconception about my pal the Slender Man due to the appearance of this article. He does not have hair or a face. Everything else is correct. There is also some questioning as to whether or not there is more than one. I find that unlikely. It’s most likely Slendy fucking with your head in order to make you think that there is more than one, which he has been known to do. As of now, Slendy has 3 or 4 known accomplices.
These are Hoodie, Maskie, The Rake and possibly The Observer. Not much is known yet because the next episode of the Noah Maxwell ARG has not yet been released. In the Marble Hornets ARG, Hoodie and Maskie are possibly his followers. In the Everyman Hybrids ARG, the Rake seems to be working with him, but we aren’t really sure if that is true or not.”

Slenderman Historical References

Brazilian Cave Paintings

The earliest argued reference to the legend is within the cave paintings found in the Serr da Capivara National Park in the Northeast of Brazil, which are believed to date from as far back as 9000 BC. These paintings show a strangely elongated character leading a child by the hand, but make no reference to the extra appendages.

Egyptian Hieroglyphs

The next known possible reference to the Slender Man comes from around 3100 BC in lower Egypt, with references to the “Thief of the Gods” or the “Thief of Kuk” becoming commonplace during the reign of Pharaoh Wazner. Hieroglyphic carvings representing the Thief were found in the pharaoh’s tomb, who was rumored to have had some kind of encounter with the entity. The carvings resemble a strange figure with multiple upper limbs, one that has never been found in any other hieroglyph language.

German Woodcuts

Renowned German woodcutter Hans Freckenberg created at least two woodcuts featuring a character he described as Der Ritter (The Knight) during the mid-sixteenth century that were discovered in Halstberg Castle in 1883. Whilst Freckenberg was well-known for his realistic depiction of human anatomy – something that was unusual among woodcuts of the time – these pictures featured a skeletal, multi-limbed character. Historians are unsure of the exact symbolic nature of the character, with some claiming that it is a personification of the religious wars that raged in Europe at the time, while others say it represents the mysterious plagues that have been believed to be the reason for the mysterious abandoning of the Hastlberg Castle and the nearby village in 1543. However, many insist that Freckenberg was attempting to represent “Der Großmann” (the Tall Man). According to legend, he was a fairy who lived in the Black Forest. Bad children who crept into the woods at night would be relentlessly chased by Der Großmann, who wouldn’t leave them be until he either caught them or they were forced to tell their parents of their wrongdoing. Even then, there is a chilling account from an old journal, dating from about 1702:

My child, my Lars… he is gone. Taken, from his bed. The only thing that we found was a scrap of black clothing. It feels like cotton, but it is softer… thicker. Lars came into my bedroom yesterday, screaming at the top of his lungs that “The angel is outside!” I asked him what he was talking about, and he told me some nonsense fairy story about Der Großmann.
He said he went into the groves by our village and found one of my cows dead, hanging from a tree. I thought nothing of it at first… but now, he is gone. We must find Lars, and my family must leave before we are killed. I am sorry, my son… I should have listened. May God forgive me.

Romanian Mythology

There is also a Romanian fairytale which tells the legend of the Tall Man, featuring this description which may have taken to refer to the Slender Man “The tall man stood in a clearing, dressed as a nobleman, all in black. Shadows lay over him, dark as a cloudy midnight. He had many arms, all long and boneless as snakes, all sharp as swords, and they writhed like worms on nails. He did not speak, but made his intentions known,” In the fairytale, the Tall Man causes a mother to kill her husband and child before he slid from a fireplace and “clenched her in his burning embrace.”

English Mythology

There is also an English myth referring to the “Tree Man,” who is said to have a slim body with appendages that looks like tree branches. He is only known to be seen in the woods and was used as a story that parents told their children to thwart bad behavior. There have been quite a few disappearances of children that have been said to be linked to the “Tree Man.”

The Slender Man Movie

Folklore and Faceless Fiends

Far from being simply a flash in the pan internet meme, Slenderman and particularly the way in which the character grew within the public consciousness has been the subject of serious academic investigation within the world of folklore studies. With scholars pointing out that the aspects of collectivity, variability and performance in the development and spread of the slenderman story identify it as a true piece of ‘folklore.’ 

The egalitarian way in which the character was  constructed, his attributes, characteristics and intentions being argued about and discussed by a range of different contributors and the fact that the details might change depending upon who is telling the tale and to whom is fascinating to folklorists,  some of whom have argued that the development of Slenderman in this way demonstrates a new stage in the evolution of folklore as a whole. 

The argument basically goes that prior to the invention of the printed word, folklore was spread by word of mouth. The basic outline of a story remained the same but since the story was being retold on different occasions with attention given to the audience’s preferences, details and some aspects of the story would change. 

Once everything was printed, ‘accepted versions’ came into being because the story could be codified. With the freedom, anonymity and multiplicity afforded by the internet, that rigid structure is now breaking down and the original features of folklore, where things can be changed, details vary and specifics become blurry are returning. The Slenderman and the way in which the character developed are a prime example of this. 

Interestingly, this collaborative development also contributes to the effectiveness of the character and fits perfectly with the fact that he is depicted as ‘faceless’. By not having definable or recognisable features Slenderman remains formless and also entirely malleable, in the same way the universal bogeyman does. A creature known to be a threat by all but upon which anyone can project their own fears. 

Some scholars have also pointed out how the features that did develop to define the Slenderman’s characteristics have their roots in much older folklore, for example, the character’s status as a malevolent force dwelling in the forest or woods and threatening harm to children has massive echoes of the traditional big bad wolf narratives, or tales of the Headless Horseman, whilst the vagueness of his appearance and intentions and proclivity for kidnapping children links him to fairies and fae folk,a link that has been explored by noted scholars inn folklore. The kidnapping element also ties the Slenderman character to other mythic bagmen known to ‘carry off’ children such as  the european tradition of the ‘bag man’ who would take children away. The stories surrounding the Slenderman and his ability to seemingly entice children to come to him rather than offering them violence (at least in any form that is explicitly described in the stories) has heavy echoes of  the Pied piper of Hamiln. This mythic figure who had the ability to induce rodents to follow him using his pipe and was therefore able to drive them out of hamilin was double crossed by the people od the city who refused to pay him. As punishment he used the same pipe and magical ability on the children of the city, leading them to follow him out of the city in a mesmerised procession.

It has been pointed out that outside of the internet, The Slenderman retains power to concern and worry parents because he represents the classic notion of something that is  a threat to children that they cannot fully explain or define, again this is partly due to Slenderman’s inherent vagueness, in that most could not pin down his origins to for example a particular television show or game. He instead seems to concerned parents to have been conjured from nothing and yet be a character that is known amongst children and teenagers. The idea that character reported to be able to entice children and adolescents within the story is so enticing and popular with them in the real world is a blurring of boundaries that parents found threatening. Especially when Slenderman’s influence was seen to have extended beyond the internet and into real life.

Real life and Moral Panic

In 2012 a girl in Wisconsin was stabbed 19 times by two classmates who then attributed their actions to being in the service of or trying to meet the demands laid down by Slenderman. 

Whilst one of the perpetrators also claimed to have spoken to ninja turtles and characters from the Harry Potter series, it was the reference to the ominous sounding Slenderman that caught the public’s imagination. Particularly as this was something that the more tech savvy younger generation seemed to be aware of and which their parents were in the dark about, with the police chief of the are where the stabbings occurred adding to the sense of trepidation by commenting that “the internet is full of dark and wicked things”. 

Following the incident a ‘moral panic’ arose in the United States with parents and teachers voicing their concern about the possible negative influence of this ‘slenderman’. These concerns were further driven into a frenzy by  incidents in 2014 and 2015 which were linked to the slenderman mythology. 

In the 2014 incident a young girl was alleged to have set fire to her home in Florida with her mother and sibling inside. With media reports later pointing out that amongst other things (notably Soul Eater by Atsusuhi Okubo) the girl had been reading stories of The Slenderman. 

In the 2015 incident a spate of attempted suicides amongst young people on the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation was linked back to the character who was cited as being an influence. The involvement of supernatural forces in the suicide epidemic was underlined when a high ranking official from Oglala Sioux tribe mentioned belief in a suicide spirit. 

Conversely, it is interesting to note that as the Slenderman entered the mainstream media and became linked to these real life incidents the character’s popularity online showed significant signs of waning with a massive dip in popularity and related output. It is also significant that it was in the wake of these real life incidents that depictions of Slenderman as a benevolent or protecting figure first began to emerge. 

Influences 

The fact that the slenderman character and mythology was constructed by a disparate collection of creators over an extended period of time means that pinning down individual influences that may have contributed to the character’s construction can be difficult. However, it is possible to trace some figures, tropes and characteristics that almost undoubtedly helped shape the figure of the Slenderman. Amongst the influences that Knudson has acknowledged are Stephen King, the figure of The Tall Man in the horror movie Phantasm, the work of HP Lovecraft (as suggested by the appearance of tentacles) and the Mad Gasser of Matoon. 

One of the most immediately obvious influences not mentioned by the author are the ‘Men in Black’ characters that populate many sci fi television programs and have one incarnation in The Matrix films. Usually these figures are thought to represent some shadowy government agency rather than being cryptids or malevolent entities in their own rights but the dark suit is definitely reminiscent. 

 A spin off of this theme and another possible influence are the characters of The Gentlemen from the Buffy the Vampire Slayer episode Hush, who, though they do sport facial features, unlike The Slenderman are malevolent beings with pale skin, bald heads and dark suits who bear striking resemblances to the depictions of the slenderman. 

Other suggested influences upon the character’s later development are Jack Skellington from the Nightmare before Christmas who again sports a bald, pale head (though admittedly not featureless), is himself incredibly thin and wears a dark suit.

Finally one of the most compelling possible influences is the DC comics character The Question. This character as well as wearing a suit has an entirely featureless face and bears an uncanny resemblance to many of the Slenderman depictions seen in fan art. Whilst the existence of this character and the striking similarity in appearance does not necessarily mean that it was a direct influence upon the image of Slenderman or was even known to the character’s creator, it is interesting that Knudson originally posted as ‘Victor Surge’ whilst in the DC comics The Question’s secret identity is ‘Victor Sage’.

  1. It’s really sad that horror stories like this convince idiots that these things are real and inspire them to do stupid stupid things…

  2. slender, ah slender, i wish i could see you… your inhuman limbs, your emotionless face, for you to whisk me away, would be an honor… to say the least.

  3. Slenderman as we call him was based off of a German folktale of a man similar to this one who would punish bad Children by imapling them on tree limbs the suit was an American addition as well as the randomly selecting of victims still the very first time I read this it gave me chills

  4. What in the actual fuck, mate!? Is this the best you could do, or are you just warming up? I mean, the story was short and predictable, not a good combination; you literally skipped over the climax and went from fucking rising action to the fucking resolution of the fucking story, which had a goddamn cliffhanger!! Don’t get me wrong, I enjoy the fact that you’re trying to build a story around a much more popular pasta, and you were doing okay, but you fucked it up by saying shit like ” inky blackness” and ” the void melted away” like this is a story written by a game scripter who has a lot of free time on their hands, so they decide to fucking easter egg the shit out of the game. I applaud your attempt to make a story, but it gets a 6.5 out of 10 from me.

  5. Wish it was longer and more detailed it would make it a lot more interesting but other then that it was fine to me :)

  6. A Human Just Like You

    Slenderman is only an urban legend which was used these times as an implement of education.
    Don’t believe me?
    Well, are those sentences are changing your mind? “Honey, be nice or Slenderman will get you!” Or “help me please, or Slenderman will get you!”
    Well, more like a threat implement…
    Oh, forgot to mention! Also a great horror camping story! :D

  7. I’ve never seen anything even remotely super natural. Sometimes I’d like to though. Sorry Slendy but I’m a non-believer.

  8. I find it funny how everyone loves Slenderman, when if slenderman ever saw you he wouldnt go “this guy likes me so i wont do anything to him”

    Ah, still love slender tho.

  16. Slenderiswaiting

    Honestly, no one thinks this is real, but once I was walking in the forest. I did see a blank face and a tuxedo, but then it dissapered.

  17. I was just trying to get some coffee man jeff got in a rage and messed up my kitchen which Im still pissed about..

  18. Why is this highly rated? It’s a boring story with hardly a twist at the end, where slenderman appears and just stands around doing nothing, much like in the terrible game.

  19. AddictiveLikeDrugs

    where’s the insanity of Slender-syndrome??? Where’s the paranoid, urgent, raw fear and the running until you can’t run from a creature this powerful? Otherwise, nummy pasta :3

      1. AddictiveLikeDrugs

        I’m talking about the story itself. In my opinion, it doesn’t correctly depict the way people make Slenderman out to be. In this pasta, they make him seem like a harmless ghost, not a terrifying creature.

  20. One day I hope that we contain the German demon “Der Grobmann” and keep him locked up, and then end all of this nonsense once and for all. Of course we would also have to wipe everyone’s memory of all knowledge of the “Slenderman” and his alias’s. After all who else is better suited (pardon the pun) than the SCP Foundation?

  21. Layla The Killer

    I loved this story!!! And y’all need to hush, we know it’s not real it’s a story for a reason people make stuff up to be entertaining.

  22. Hate or Love it??
    I will go with the first option because of the random spikes of spine chilling scenarios but… the 2nd story doesnt make sence but no haytin for me

  23. Slendy like really Jeff and me are cool your just a guy in a tux who scares people no killing in the story so yeah go away and get off the website you tux man

  24. Alyssa dumb people can’t spell dumb.

    Taylor I agree with your correction of Alyssa’s post but if you like proper English then why have you typed “unless their is evidence” instead of “unless there is evidence”? Do you know what proper English is?

    The Slenderman story is silly.

  25. mystery_girl12

    ive heard plenty of stories on slender man … this one wasnt that bad but i feel it shouldve been longer and more detail on the entity … just saying this story was kinda whackk.

  26. Wow, now I can see why people complain… The witching hour is opposite the miracle hour. 3 a.m. and 3 p.m. respectively. Slenderman is the same as eyeless jack, Jeff the killer, and almost every other killer in the creepypasta repertoire. Made up by someone who had a wonderful idea, and everyone ran with it. Just like Justin Beiber’s career, its fake and I refuse to believe. Or beleib??? Anyways, the fanboys/girls are the reason a youngster was murdered, and enough is enough. I didn’t even read it yet…

  27. wouldn't you like to know

    I’m a tall white guy but I can’t afford a suit! :(
    anyone play slender the arrival that is some fun, scary stuff I punched my pc when I was playing it

  28. Creepy pasta is aplace for people to come up with creative stories. Using the imagination. Its not meant to be real. If you were true followers then youd know that its not real at all.

  29. SLENDY:
    I think this story is true every night even before I read this I saw a tall white guy in a tuxedo in my nightmares.Usally in a forest late at night.I believe this story

    Fake

    SLENDY:
    I think this story is true every night even before I read this I saw a tall white guy in a tuxedo in my nightmares.Usally in a forest late at night.I believe this story

    Mate you are a wanna be slender man

  30. Overly Literal Joe

    Call it real if you want, (Its obviously not) but if you want you can, But the story just isn’t written well. Nothing on this website is really written well. I came here because i wanted to be scared and honestly, i’m disappointed. Again, I don’t care if you think its real or not, (Again, just make believe) But it’s just not scary. Have fun obsessing about something uninteresting, Internet

    1. It’s a creepypasta. It’s not meant to be taken as real, they’re just small horror stories for those who don’t want to read a full book. Don’t come on here disrespecting the writers. There are a lot of good stories here and a lot of us legitimately enjoy them. Assuming you only came to see what the hype is about, if you didn’t like what you read you could have just left without leaving a jerkish comment.

  31. well all i can say is wtf is the girls seeing in this story? i have no idea what is so special about this slenderguy. i mean come on this is BS.

  32. Reading thru the comments this is to the ones who are messing with everyone’s heads, to the idiots claiming its real. Its not real you morans its a short story, there is no facts to support this story so come on and grow a brain.
    To the writer good story.

  33. The day I learned about Slenderman from a friend, I walked him home then got lost on my way back for like 1-2 hours. It was foggy and I thought Slenderman was going to come after me, and I kept seeing things in the distance that looked like a figure standing there, it was terrifying to say the least.

  34. I think its not true because if you see something that is true you believe in it but actually what you see something its stuck in your memories well you should conquer your fear thats what i do i conquer my fears ii believe in no fear

    every once in a while I stalks me I tend to stay away from the woods but I know its still after me but Iknow it wont get me

    Midnight is not the witching hour. 3 am is the witching hour.

  36. TheRealSlenderman:
    This is all True!!!!!!!! Don’t test me I am Slenderman I know where all of you live

    Well that’s funny I didn’t know good ol’ slendy spent his days on the Internet instead of stalking poor innocent children. Not that he’s real. Get a life.

  37. Have none of your parents ever taught you the difference between reality and fiction….??? I love horror movies and books but I don’t believe their real just because I have a dream about one. That’s just your mind showing its creative side or it your minds way of trying to work through something that’s going on in your life. As stories go frankly that one was very tame compared to some things I’ve read and watched. The truly scary thing was the comments after the story…and how many of you seem to think a fictional character is real. I think your parents need to take all your computers and phones away and make you spend more time on your school work . Otherwise our world won’t end up like “Slendermans” its going to end up like “Idiocracy” !!!!

    1. Please dont take the comments seriously. And just because someone believes in a fictional character doesnt mean they need to get their phones and computers taken away. Kids believe in Santa and we dont take their Christmas away. smh

    I thought this was pretty good, but it had the same annoying cliche as every Slenderman story. I’m not sure if it’s just me, or if it bothers anyone else, but it’s seeing Slenderman through a peephole. Now, a peephole is usually eye-level, which is somewhere between 5 and a half to six feet. In most stories, Slenderman is roughly 8 to 10 feet tall. That means that you wouldn’t see his ‘face’ through a peephole. At best, you’d see his tie or stomach, but not his ‘face’.

  39. Slender: “Nicole?” a warm, male voice snapped the woman out of her trance. As she turned around, she was met by one of her sister’s doctor’s. She nodded, not sure if she should say anything, or even if she could find her voice if she did have something to say. That morning, she had gotten an urgent phone call from the hospital, saying that her sister, Lindsay, was there. Before they had even let her see her, the doctor’s had pulled her off to the side and insisted that they talk to her about what might have happened. Phrases like ‘self-inflected’ and ‘assault’ had been thrown around and Nicole felt her mind reel.

    Slender:
    You have no idea if i’m real or fake no one knows and no one will tell. You have no idea how powerful I am! i’m a silent killer. And you can’t kill me.

    Dude,what is wrong with you!!!This is fake!Creepypasta,s are ment to scare people!your NOT REAL!!!

  40. I agree with Kitten. Slendy McSlenderman IS class.
    Jeff is just plain creepy and
    make you want to scream
    and get a gun.

  41. omg omg omg i wish i could meat slender man i herd if you see him holding a red rose and you take it from him he stealz your v-card *wink,wink* i wish could take it. HES HHOOTT!!!!!!!!!!!

  42. Slender man and smile dog and Jeff the killer pleas don’t kill me I get scared really easily because I was taken away from my mom when I was six months old and I have my dads anger issues so if y’all really know where I live than you would probably understand and I’m afraid of spiders and I use to have some dogs but one of them was a white husky and she married a lab dog and so we had to feed her six babbies by bottle but if y’all are real please don’t scare me or kill me I would love to live a life but come to where I live and tell me how my birth mom is doing I miss her so much and show me a picture of her but please don’t come with blood and stuff like that on you because I would probably throw up and trust me I was so sick some of this year I could barely move and don’t come smelling bad just come to my house or orfanage where I live go to the basement and say don’t be scared please I would really love to see some people and a dog and a tall person for a change but I’m only 11 but im like 5 foot somthing thanks can’t wait to see all of y’all

  43. It’s all real and if you don’t believe it than your an idiot and you need to believe it and stop being such an idiotic loser

  44. The nonbeliever

    Hey you guys are always talking about all this stupid stuff well all this is just made up by some random guy who is probably laughing at you right as we speak and some of you are calling yourselves creepy pastas which you clearly are not my point is this is all lyes.so don’t act like they are true.

  45. every once in a while I stalks me I tend to stay away from the woods but I know its still after me but I know it wont get me

  46. You are completely murdering the English language right here. “Ain’t” isn’t a word, it only makes fucking sense when you speak it. Do you have any proof that Creepypasta is fake? Obviously, we don’t have proof that they’re real (except for The Rake) but you can’t prove it wrong, you don’t officially know.
    By the way, I called the Sacred Hearts Hospital, where Jeff was treated for the burns, and they said they had a Jeffery Woods around September 2006. They said he was a burnt victim but wouldn’t say anymore.
    And I also found a newspaper article on him and it had a picture of what I think to be Liu. So don’t go saying things you don’t know. Slenderman, yeah, the story seems fake, but it could be real. Just like there is some proof of mermaids, no one knows if mermaids exist but the little proof given holds hope. So stop crushing other’s dreams and crush your own.

  47. Slendorians ain’t real slenderman ain’t real and Jeff ain’t either! So….so less than likely….we will disappear from global to historical documents…..

    1. You actually made my head hurt. Your infantile rambleing that was obviously the product of either to much to drink/smoke, actually gave me a headache. Anyone with half of a brain stem knows that Slendy is not real.

      Please save your rants for a different topic.

        Well, what you typed is true. And I posted a comment explaining why I’m pissed at this person.

        1. I wish everyone blessings. Even if you may think I am wrong. I truly care about every person I come across…. Even if the raging part of me hates the stupidity they put forth.

        2. I am wiccan. Although you try explaining to a psychiatrist you believe in magic… That was a fun conversation.

          But, in truth I still have strong ties to my neo pagan faith. Even after convincing my therapist believing in magic is no more crazy than believing in a man in the sky who judge you constantly.

          I just really hope you were not criticizing my usage of the phrase.

          Merry meet, merry part, and blessed be, shadowblade

  48. Well to someone without thought could shed lite on this topic!…..slendorians…..Well too bad! Yah think I’m mad … nope because I am skaranos 5…..who….can’t get mad at anyone and if I did….there is no termination for ology!…..slendorians unfortunately go to slendology!….LOL.

    *You’re dumb, so dumb, how is that real? :P I like proper English, and alyssa, never assume something is false, unless their is evidence to prove it so. And it’s just a story for entertainment.

    Just saying, you used the wrong, “they”re”.

  50. How can you……I haven’t been following all this long…..it’s the brains that has a problem with the slendermen…s..as….s…i-don’t know how….anyway….slendorians won’t interfere with the slenderman history….so ….yeah.

  51. Slendorians……h.yuh…ain’t I a difference huh……sadly my friends are dead(slendorian mythology)…..eventually my family skra,trone,kron,queen sokran,skaranos 3,and….my son…..slenderman….was possesd by humanity…….tragic……but do I care….nope!

  52. Even tho I am king (truly not) and I’m getting better at my English phrases…..but I’m stuck on “von acturus”….it’s a weird old legend that has shown weakness in the past 500,000 years….I think….

  53. Oh…….oooh….slendorians SHALL rise again through the darkness of horizontal….stuff..slendorians don’t know much but we have reasonable of why we were never told about…sadly but truly…

  54. NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO RUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUN

  55. if all of the creepypasta’s where real I would fate or die. anyways I’m a fangirl for all the creepypasta’s. I love you guy’s. oh I have a question.is jane the killer real?

  56. I believe this story because I have seen him before when me and my friend were taking a hike we were being stocked by him. this was the most scary thing that has ever happened to me. That is why me and my friend believe in slender man and this story.

  57. Slender:
    You have no idea if i’m real or fake no one knows and no one will tell. You have no idea how powerful I am! i’m a silent killer. And you can’t kill me.

  58. The peaople who believe slenderise real are idiots whoever said you saw him you saw a drug dealer or hobo or a creep seriously

  59. Starr: z
    lol hi slendy. I have a question… where do you take people after you disappear with them? and will u marry me? :3 funny joilk

  60. Slenderman:
    What’s dumb is that you can’t see the proof when its right in front of your face. You never know if they’re real or not.

    he’s right

  61. Slender man
    It’s possible he is real
    Jeff the killer
    Not real because if he did burn oh is eyelids he would die from lack of sleep

    1. A Zerg Hydralisk (wearing a Traffic Cone on head)

      herobrine you suck. your not scary. a CarBotAnimations version of the Zergling is scarier than you (watch CarbotAnimation’s “StarCrafts” series. you will see.)
      go home to minecraft, right now.

  62. I am 11 and this is the stupidest thing I have ever seen and I watch stupid tv shows. And TheRealSlender is a total fake do not believe him.

      1. A Zerg Hydralisk (wearing a Traffic Cone on head)

        your not scary and you never will be. minecraft isn’t scary, it never will be.

  63. madhattersdaughter

    Always watches no eyes. Slender is there at your bed side. What does he want? Don’t know for sure but all I can say is forget all you were. HeEheehee! He’s watching!

    1. A Zerg Hydralisk (wearing a Traffic Cone on head)

      your not the slenderman, your just some kid pretending to be him. stop trying to be something your not.

  64. dude slender is as real as the sun me and my sister are no lie being stalked by masky my sister had a dream about the what is going to happen it was scary i am not lieing and when we when into the trails near our house i heard some footsteps and my sister saw a dude with a white mask she thinks it had black on it messy brown hair a brownish yellow jacket and blue jeans when we investigated a mud puddle had a footprint in it and it was wayyyyy of the path no one goes that far off the path we ran back to the house and i swear i peed myself

    1. also i saw the proxi sign carved on a tree it scared the poo out of me literally i pooped my pants i also can’t stop drawing the proxi sign :’d i really am scared

  65. The slenderman is real. And it doesn’t matter if you believe it or not. He will find you if you don’t believe. And he will tear you apart. Limb by limb. Piece by piece. So believe on him now. Or have a good night

  66. A ordinary person

    This story is very good, I like stories that are good well done who ever wrote this. I think that we should all apreciate this story and not argue about if slenderman is real or not.

  67. all yall how think slenderman is real are crackheads its just supposed to be a little fun\creepy story!!!!!!!!!!

  68. I have realy seen the slenderman in my window but when i blinked he was gone i thought it was a dream but the exact same thing had happened the very next night

  69. Psiho The Madman: To every bitch in the place called “Slendy”,”Slenderman”, e.t.c., e.t.c.I am Psiho, i will slit your throats in one blow using my nails. Don’t fuck with me.

    oh ur cool

  70. For the people who have claimed to see him:
    If you firmly believe something you fear is real enough, sometimes your brain may make mirages or somehow make you believe you have seen him. Even if you don’t believe, you may still see him if you are up late at night reading about him, playing a game, or watching vids.

  71. Slender Man is just a myth. If he killed in real life he would have been caught and witnessed because I know if Creepy Pastas are real or not. Slender Man is just a story to make little kids behave and scared for the rest or their lives.
    Trust me!

    Um, Featherholder? That’s the whole point! It just shows how bad the comment was…

    What if Morgan Freeman is Slenderman?

    I love you. ;)

    Anyways, nice little story. X) It didn’t really get me into the character of the person, but still…I rate this 6/10!

  73. i love creepypasta its not very sacry it have fun story about my thing the best one jeff the kill;er am i liove jeff the killer

  74. Slenderman may or may not be real, however, why would he be dumb enough to use “slenderman” or “Slendy” or anything like that as his username? I’m positive that he’d use another username. He lurks in the wood and kills kids, for pete’s sakes! Why would he be after attention?

  75. All of you who say you saw him, you are seeing him because you have him in your head. If you never heard of him, you would not see him. I have not seen him yet and I don’t want to. There, case solved.

  76. Pinkamena Diane Pie

    Okay let me ask you all something 1. why didn’t Slendy teleport inside? 2. Why the heck was he there in the first place? 3. how does the dude see with no eyes and 4. as cautionary tale…… NEVER PLAY THIS GAME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! *screams*

  77. I’ve read heaps of slender man stories and most of them say that people have seen him from 3-5 story-high buildings

  78. Troy Wagner:
    So fo people call him slenderman now? I personally call him Operator…

    Hey J, I know this was a long time ago, but sorry I tried to shoot you in front of Jessica in Rosswood Park

  79. Guys, you know
    Why my dad steals people? Because You guys steal my drawings my daddy puts on trees to decorate! Sob sob. So my dad kills them

  80. TheRealRake:
    Hang her on a tree! eat her neck! you have got to be kidding me! slender wouldnt do that! he would get caught and he has finger prints people! he only lacks 3 things!
    1. NORMAL BODY!
    2. A BRAIN!
    (and the biggest one of all)
    3. A FACE!

    You couldn’t just catch slender if he was real.

  84. Hey ss21Coolcat
    I feel pretty sorry bout dat man
    And I had a similar experience as a child yet oddly I don’t have much memory of it

  85. My daughter was taken by slender. i now believe he is real. she told me stories about him then when one night i said i would only believe her when i see some of slender’s work and doing. the next morning she was gone and then she was found tramatized in the woods almost scared to death she recovered but i didn’t forget the memory.

  86. Andy Sixx's Future wife

    @alyssa
    Look in the mirror whenu call people stupid cuz u look very dumb when sayin thatt stuff . How do you know its fake?
    How do you know its real? YOU DONT! But think twice before criticisizing( yes i kno i spelled it wrong dnt care) things that ur not fully aware and sure of.
    G’day to you all
    Andy Sixx’s future wife –

  87. Humph ! If you search Jeff in search and read Jeff the killer it shows you a picture of frikin Jeff. After that I cried for a few hours. Then I looked at the pic again. I was tired the next morning be cuz I would not sleep

  88. To all of those who do not believe in this story, I bet you don’t believe in Santa and you are a non-believing hater.

    Thank you for your time.

    Exactly

  90. Jeff the Killer scares me way more than Slenderman, like I can’t even look at Jeff’s picture. That’s how much he scares me.

  91. This story is super freaky just like all of the others like eyeless jack or Jeff the killer, and it really scares me so I just try to believe that it’s not true, but what if it is?? HELP

    1. congratulations! but have you ever been to slender’s mansion? so you know, it’s huge. and if you were there for the party, then we’ll be besties for evs! because i am also friends with … what did you say slenderman? i am friends with ALL the creepypasta charactors!

  92. The Witching Hour is 3am. I couldn’t get past the first sentence because of how wrong it is that everyone assumes midnight is the time of the happening.

    1. you really think i would believe you about you being slender girl because slender girl is fake! you copied it off of my website and becuse you did that becareful going to sleep tonight! ha! i am friends with all the creepypasta charactors but jeff doesn’t want me hanging around jane because she’ll eat my soul or something like that but i want to hang out with jane because i get a little freaked out looking at jeff’s face. IT’S CREEPY!!!!

    I think this story is true every night even before I read this I saw a tall white guy in a tuxedo in my nightmares.Usally in a forest late at night.I believe this story

    are you thinking clearly there is no way this is true so you should think before you post.

  95. seriously? i think slenderman is awesomer. i want to meet one and hopfully he will like me back but if not well, i don;t know what to do.anyways, jeff is in the back of my mignes or my brain and slenderman is my most worrys because i live by the woods well, i’m serounded by the woods and i’m scared to turn the lights out and go to bed and i’m like 11!

  96. jeff the killer is much more auesome than slenderman.jeff actually had a story to how he became the way he is right now while slendie on the other hand just scares people.jeff is really hot too if you see the anime version of him.

    1. no!! slenderman! slenderman! ya! he’s my best friend! we had a long talk about you last night and he’s going to get you! I AM SERIOUS!!!!!!!

  97. I remember when I was vacationing in Costa Rica last summer that I was listening to Nightcore and reading up on Slenderman (and of course I was sitting outside, back turned to the jungle behind me), and I read a part saying that he will appear ANYWHERE at any time… That’s when I felt it… The chill of someone watching me… I wanted to run inside, but another part told me to turn my head and look. I looked. I wish I hadn’t, because all I saw was a black figure standing in the Manglar (stuff that if you get into, you can’t get out, it’s a bunch of wadded up roots above ground, like a cage
    ), and then I saw black “arms”, I guess, come out from it, and that’s when I ran for the door. I didn’t go back outside for a long time… I lay there in my bed, scared to shut my eyes (also, my room only had curtains instead of doors and there were windows right across from me and one big window behind my bed), and I got the chills again and cried until I fell asleep. I scratch myself while I sleep, but when I woke up, I had deep, long scratches on my stomach and my shirt was on the ground. I was scared, but yet, I felt happy. I put my bathing suit on and decided to go surf (not to mention that I was pleased with the scratches *~*), so I did. I finally came home, and I felt the chills again on my way home, and I smiled. I turned to the jungle and saw the darkness again, and this time, I wanted to go towards it. I started walking towards the manglar, smile still on my face, but my brother grabbed my arm and said, “What’s wrong with you? You can’t go into the manglar!” and then I snapped out of the “trance” smile faded, chills burned me, and when I saw the darkness again, I screamed in terror. I ran all the way back, even dropped my surfboard, and I never looked back. Since then, I have been seeing the darkness more and more and sometimes even at school. I keep a distance from people at school, because I sometimes think that it will hurt people just to get to me… And I don’t care if you don’t believe me, that’s what happened, and I’m sticking with it because it’s the truth!

  98. I liked this story. I wish it had been longer. Slenderman honestly scares the jeebers out of me and has for quite some time as I have had experiances with this tall figure in a suit with no face and tendrils since my freshman year of High School when I learned about him (curse you BFF for introducing me!). I wish I had never learned a think about it but eh that’s life. Now I batten down the hatches and record ever waking moment.

    ANYWAY I love the story and my point is that I think it could very well be true. Notice how that writer didn’t try and over exagerate it or mae it creepier than needed. It just gave straight forward info

  99. OMG, I am not going to sleep tonite.I am freakin out over the new CreepyPasta. Slenderkid!. I am freakin out over Jeff The Killer too. Ugh I i am no going outside at night now!

  100. Nobody likes me! I’m forgotten again. Slender always gets the fame! And the Girls, and the fame…….did I mention the girls?

    1. Don’t worry Jeffie! Well never forget about those ominous eyes, and besides I don’t plan on marrying slender! Those tentacles will be a problem. But besides the point is..you have a spot in my fear department.

  101. I really like when it says “The icing on the proverbial cake, however, was what passed as the hellish thing’s face. It was as though her mind blurred the ghastly visage to spare itself further shock and horror.”, this makes me think that maybe slenderman has a face but, the human mind blocks it out because it is too terrifying.

        1. HHHHHEEELLLLPPPP

          ***888**8****88 PRETTY STARS RIGHT? FJSJFJFNDSFNHLFDKLJFLJFJLAJFLJDAJFKDJFJKLFLDFDKFDKJFDFJDKFMDFLDFKDNF HAHAHAHAHAHAHAH HHHHHHHHhhhhhhhhhhhhHHHHHHHHHHhhhhHHHHHHHHHH HEE HEEVEEE ITITITITITITITITITITITITITITITITITITIT S COMING TO GET ME HX;NTR.ZSW G BEWARE! IM COMING FOR YOU! HA!

      1. What the hell is going on here?

        There are a ton of really useless comments coming from this IP, I was nice and approved some but now that I see the heaps of nonsense you spammed, I think I’ll just trash the rest. Go to bed or something.

  102. this reminds me of one time. I can’t tell if it was a dream or real. I was just a little girl. All I remember was being near some woods and a bit of fog around me, and coming face-to-face with a man. He was way taller, obviously, but I don’t recall any facial features. How am I alive? ;-;

  103. it was a good story. I mean cant slender just teleport in front of her. and they didn’t say anything about her ear being stabbed.* looks at slender evily* besides at least everyone beleves in him. right?

  104. I have seen a tree with its branches blowing even though there was no wind that day. It looked like a football was stuck in it and it had arms! I totally believe that I saw Slenderman. ;_;

  105. I have seen a tree with its branches blowing even though there was no wind that day. It looked like a football was stuck in it and it had arms! I totally believe that I saw Slenderman.

  106. Guys the only reason why people think its real is because they believe in it and really think with their hearts its real. If you wanna believe go ahead because ive heard enough stories and voice recordings to know that slender may very well be real.

  107. it’s strange they say you have nightmares about slender man but ive been having good dreams about him. and once a person truly gets into slender he sort of creeps into your mind until you really do think he exists and out of the corner of your eye or looking out a dark window you think you see him and it scares a lot of. people but the way i see it is that slender man is nothing knowing that there is even more evil out there slender man is only the start of a nightmare.

  108. i do believe kinda about slendy but also i agree with the comment about him having a face but its just not feasible to the human eye so our minds process it as a blur. i also think he is like the faerie folk and cannot enter your home unless there is a reason for him to. anyways this stuff friggin scares me so yeah good job pasta you ruined my childhood

  109. For Me To Know And You To Find Out...

    Might be true, might not be true. Who cares? As long as we still use our brains to come up with these stories, it’s all good. I mean, some people think ghosts are real. Why dish out Slender man? It doesn’t matter, everybody has their own opinion, so deal with it…

  110. guys if slenderman existed he would have shoved my face into my keayboargfydhbjmgfjhmgjvtghgthghvjtvjhgvjgthjngtvjhcghvjmn gmn chm,g m,cmn m, fuvj mcjhm,. nmnhvb mvh gh

    three, four he’s at your door..
    five, six he looks sticks…
    seven, eight your way to late…
    nine, ten never sleep again….

  113. I have seen Slender Man… he was in my dreams and something like somebody was watching me jolted me up. I slowly looked at the window and I saw this white head like faceless figure. I was in shock. I acted like I didn’t see him knowing once I see him the he gets me. So I slowly went into another room to tell my mother. I didn’t want to tell her so I told her I had the worst dream ever. So I slept on the brown leather recliner right next to her. That’s all I remember. Sweet dreams… don’t go to sleep tonight :) mwahahahaha I only told you my true story to scare the heck outta you!

  114. YOU HATERS ARE GONNA HATE, AND I AM OKAY WITH THAT, BUT PEOPLE ARE SAYING THIS S**T ISNT TRUE. NONE OF THIS F**KING S**T ON CREEPYPASTA IS TRUE! NO F**KING S**T!

  115. Hunt me down slendy! Ps I have the eight pages and my own
    Phone so I can call 911 at any time! Ps I’m 8

  116. Idk if he is real personally idc my life goes on you people waste time on an internet legend I read thats why im here I simply want to say if he is real I reccomend staying away if he isnt I reccomend moving on I say these things not as a frightened skeptic or a frightened believer I say them as a person who wishes for other people to focus more important issues or no issuses at all and ya ik I spelled shit wrong get over it

  117. Alex... (that's it)

    I spent the night at my friends house and since we love to read creepypastas,we tried a lot of them out. We even saw Slenderman (LEGIT). I came up with another one…. SLENDABRO.

  118. Hey guys I ushally see a guy staring at me throe my door he is tall and he has long arms and legs and he has no face just some white thing :D. LOL

  119. So wait if slender man has no facial features that means he has no eyes how can see the person that he’s after

  120. Jack The Killer

    Well if that little Slender man is so scary how about he fights me! Or is your little Slender man too scared of me!

  121. Obviously none of these proclaimed Slenderman are the real deal. He shorts out electronics guys. Come on, for fans, you don’t seem to understand the concept that appliances such as phones, cameras and computers alike don’t work when he’s near. So, yeah. :P

  122. I don’t wanna make alot of people hate but, believing in stuff is fun. Everyone who’s all like, “hey dawg, this ain’t real man,” just keep it to yourself. Believing is fun sometimes.

  123. Nicole Harding

    OH NO My name is Nicole. In my dreams lately there was a tall slender figure in a forest with long arms and tenticales sprouting from its back. Its face pale with 0 facial features. It wore a black suit and tie as it teleports. All I know is that it just stood there watching me. (0_0)

  124. DarkerThenTheShadows

    Look, if these creepy pasta creatures would be real we wouldn’t even know! They hide from us humans and kill at night. This site is pretty awesome and even if Slenderman is real he wouldn’t show his face easily to people. Haters gonna hate, so if you hate things like this, why bother commenting?
    Just leave those other people alone…

  125. Okay he is real. Go on YouTube.com (And before you say the guy GamersRevengeUK faked it just watch his slender man videos)and search for a guy named GamersRevengeUK and he actually has real slender videos and now…. the government is chasing him! NO JOKE

  126. derp:
    shut up slendr man is real and im running from him

    Dude… If learned what a creepypasta is.. Tell me about it. People should start making sense. What im trying to say is… HOW STUPID COULD PEOPLE BE!!! ITS A CREEPYPASTA!!! AND U KNOW Y THIS IS ALL CAPS?!? BECAUSE Yolo everyone! B b b. PEACE!

  127. Anonymous:
    Slender’s main land IS in the forests of Germany and I also believe in slender I was in my basement and I turned around and saw him in my back yard. NO JOKE.

    Ahhhh! Why would you saaaayyyy thatttt! Now I’m scared to go back to Germany! XD

  128. did anyone else notice the it said “midnight- the witching hour” when the witching hour is 3-4 a.m. o_o get your damn dirty facts straight! damn literature whores…

  129. jeff the killer

    ok the people that are slendy therealslenderman and the other people that call themselves slender r anyother slenderman related names are just kids that want attention so if you agree with me jeff than you will be ranked smart person that knows this, slender man is a mythological creature that will not vome for you. but i will. see you later

  130. can you speak english? c:

    Cheyenne:
    Ok here I go this stuff needs to be stopped it is not real and yo fake stuff like that I not helping the young and I’m only 12 so you can’t do any thing it’s so fake so shut yo mouth and all the people sayin it’s real they lyin

  131. Hi I’m David,
    I am 12 years old and I see every night when I lie in bed around 12 hours a vague man with a tie and long arms (he has no face)
    can someone help me.
    One day I saw him because when I jumped so hard and I got no sound from my mouth and then accidentally made ​​the sound of” the” grudge when I did I had 2 days no problems .. but yesterday it has never been so bad. I was awake at night and felt a cold wind in my face. and he stood next to me .. he wanted to take me seemed just as I screamed and my father came in and he was gone .. ?

    someone please help me!!!!!!!!

  132. I really hate how people pretend to be slenderman and all these beings, just to get attention. The REAL slenderman wouldn’t go on computers and foolishly reveal his identity, would he? I’m not taking a rage at anyone, but I’m just telling you how I feel about all this.

  133. Slendy is real . Proof ? i saw him in my toast…He tasted extremely burned , don’t worry i didn’t die i added whipped butter.

  134. Nobody knows if he is real or not… I myself believe these rumors to be false and that Slenderman is no more than a OMG HE’S BEHIND ME HE’S BEHIND ME O_O

    …Okay, I’ve been dying to do that. xD Sorry, but I actually believe in him. I mean, what’s life without a little fun? Besides, I think he may actually be a nice guy, just gets overexcited from people thinking him evil.

  135. I don’t know why you people won’t just say nice things
    This slender guy is real!!! I’ve seen him
    I live in the middle of the woods
    If your scared of him he’ll take you,if your not he’ll take you
    I don’t know why I’m still alive

  136. I seriously believe this is true considering the fact that even before anyone knew about slender me and some of my friends had a slender dream. The scary thing is that we all had the same dream. We were in the woods and all we could see was a very tall figure. We had no idea what it was but we heard singing then it turned into someone we love and we were drawn toward it. We all only remembered the thought of pain and horror surrounding us and we all woke up not remembering anything happening that night. We gained our memories back recently and my other friend mentioned something about slender man and creepypasta. So I looked this site up and have been studying the slender man for months. the fact that people have thoughts about such a horrid creature before knowing anything about it terrifies all of us. We have all heard the same voice singing to us multiple times and one time my friend said he had seen some tall dark and slender shadow behind me. We read about the dreams and apparently he will sometimes morph into someone you know in order to get you to come to him. This is seriously scaring all of us…

  137. For those who believe the Slender Man is fake, then you know nothing, he lives, he is real, he’s gonna get me… He will kill me, I know he’s after me, I’ve seen figures like him, he’s been in my dreams, always watching me. My friend Riz knows its true, she woke up to me screaming pointing at him. She didn’t know what to do so she ran over to me, standing in front of me backing him off. He disappeared leaving only with two words.
    “Help Me.”
    This is no story, none at all. Believe me, or don’t believe me, our fate remains the same.

  138. demonic pikachu

    this was truly horrifying.slender man has been around for centuries.so he must be real. seeing him would cause me too have to commit suicide.hes truly a horry

  139. Der Ritter. (Slenderman)

    Dear Haunted,
    The so-called ‘SlenderSickness’ is often caused by humans coming in contact with something that they are not used to. When I first came to this dimension, I felt sick all the time, but after a few hundred years, I had adapted to it. About you feeling it when someone mentions me, it sort of spreads like that sneezing and coughing disease-the cold, right? So if you keep getting sick when people mention me, I suggest you go see a doctor, or if you’re afraid you’ll be seen as a lunatic, make something up, like whenever you go near a certain place, you get sick. However, human ways of curing illnesses aren’t very good, as demonstrated back during the Middle Ages when people who got fevers got bled by leeches, and headaches were cured by drilling holes through heads. Quite nasty, but try to hang in there as long as you can because if you get this sick too much, you may end up hospitalized.

  140. i belive ive had dreams and nightmares ive been feeling sick when im out alone.wenever someone metions him i feel sick if i hear his name i get woozy help me please make it stop!

  141. Der Ritter (Slenderman)

    By the name of Old King George, I declare that this dimension is unfit for habitation thanks to you humans polluting the enviroment-you only get one Earth, and the Sixth Great Extinction is going to happen in the next 300 years because of you. However, on the behalf of my people, I remain behind to study why humans are so-what’s the word-destructive. Hormones gone wild? Mutant creations that are genetically-engineered soldiers? Whatever the reason, I won’t stop until Ifigure it out. Funny how slow I age here-In my dimension, we age normally, but here in this dimension, thousands of years have gone by and I only aged a year! And if you folk are wondering why I had impaled those humans, it was because they had fought back with steel things you call knives and guns. Those organs placed in bags were a disection experiment, but the group I work for had discouraged me of hunting humans for the sake of Otherwordly Science. About the people I kidnapped, and nobody ever saw them again, it was because I took them to my own dimension for studying. And if you’re wondering about my other name, ‘Der Ritter’, it was what the people of the Dark Ages used to call me in Europe, because I often took the form of a knight or royal figure as not to stand out. The name loosly translates as ‘The Tall Knight’. And for those who say I’m not real, well, can you see atoms? Brainwaves? Radioactive particles? No, but they’re there-at least humans have spotted me. As for ‘stalking’ certain humans, I was merely tracking someone I tagged as research, going as far as to watch how they live. As for the other ‘Creepypastas’ yes some of them are real. However, I do not have siblings named Splendorman and Trendorman-utter nonsense made up by your kind to kind of ease your thoughts.
    I must admit, I was offended by your recreation of me, the game ‘Slender’ and people dressing up as me for All Hallows Eve. (Whyt shortened to Halloween?) And I now have to step up my game to avoid Slenderhunters-young people who believe I exist. Honestly, there is this one girl who is constantly reading up Slenderman SIghtings, and she is always snooping in the woods at the wee hours of morn. At my guess, she is either 13 or 14.
    Now, have a great day,and I need to scurry before the family comes home and sees me on their computer.

    Sincerely,
    Slenderman.

    1. Every 23rd Spring for r23 Days It gets to Eat

      O-o
      Okay…I saw several entries on here becuz of people who claim to be Slendy, but this one is chiiling me. Der Ritter has all the facts about this, and Im convinced he’s the real Slenderman!

      1. THIS IS MAH USERNAME!!!

        BRo, don’t freak out. You are only gonna die, whats the big deal………… DONT GO TO SLEEP YOU WONT WAKE UP!

  142. How dume can a person get? You guys all know that you will never know the true story… If you wanna know what I do… Then let me tell you. I STALK the adults who are near my forest, tapeing with there video cameras… But with CHILDREN its a different story… I murder them, and then EAT them! Same with TEENAGERS… You never know whats gonna be in front of you when you wake up…

  143. omg I love slendy he is like ma best friend!just so you know I am not a creeper I only like creepy stories like slenderman and the tails doll curse you know stuff like that.

  144. every time I hear about slender man I see him in 2 of my dreams to know if you encountered him first you would get nose bleeds then you would get nausea and you will also have hallucinations and nightmares and paranoia

  145. I used to see flashed of bright light in completely camera free places and I used to see a figure in the corner of my eyes so I don’t take this as false cuz it might be real one way or another

  146. I know “it” is real. No, I am not running from it. I am avoiding it. It almost kills me and yes, I am paranoid to the brim of sanity’s end. It won’t leave me alone. So many tentacles…. The face… That isn’t a face…

  147. i like these kind of stories because there nice and short, but it wasn’t a great story, it was a bit to quick and it wasn’t that amusing…

  148. Hey let’s hunt slenderman with help of the camera static :D oh actually let’s not because he probably doesn’t exist like some people believe…..

  149. the person that just commented ”if you now leave a comment i will come to your house and shoot you with a knife” you are utterly retarded and you need some mental help bc you can not shoot someone with a knife o k

    1. You know that there is a weapon that acrually uses rounds with knifes on top? it is called “ballistic knife”

  150. I think that the Slenderman is the brother of the Enderman. Seems likely, they’re both creepy as sh*t.

  151. Shadows-Always-Watching-Me

    NOW ALL OF YOU QUIT YOUR JABBERNABBING BICKERING!!! IF COMPUTERS COULD SAY WHAT YOU WROTE IT’D BE LOUD ENOUGH TO WAKE THE DEAD!!!!!! Ahem, anyways, just let the topic on whether or not Slenderman (Der Ritter, as he is called in Germany) is real. There has been a lot of evidence, though, from woodcuts to even cave art of a child being led away by a very, very tall figure. Don’t forget the kidnappings of the 1900’s, and please don’t forget about the ‘insane’ folk have all saw the same creature! His appearance might differ from time to time, but netherless, he has been accurately described by those who saw him. Just because you are afraid of something doesn’t mean it doesn’t exist. I’m deathly afraid of spiders and bees, but are they make-believe? No. There are plenty of other creatures out there that haven’t been discovered-the Bonobo Apes weren’t discovered until several decades ago, and if a creature that big can hide out for centuriesd, why not Slenderman? Lack of evidence doesn’t mean lack of presence; I figured that one out the hard way. Can you see atoms? brain waves? cells? No yuo can’t, but they’re still there; same with Slenderman. A legend means that no-one can prove if it’s real or not, myth means that it never happened; please get your facts straight before you end up bashing each other over something utterly ridicoulus! Just so you know, Jeff the Killer is a real person, but his story has been twisted a bit to make him seem more horrifying. And to think that you all have been told off and given a lesson by a 13-year-old girl! Good day, and please learn to respect others! :-)

  152. The Haunted Soul

    guys this is all real believe it or not i was walking home one day from my friends house he lives by some woods and all the sudden i heard screaming in the woods so i ran to where the screaming was coming from and all i heard was static….THAT FUCKING STATIC!!! and when i looked down i saw a camera that was still recording and when i picked it up it had gone dead so i put it in my bookbag and started walking out of the woods then i heard a noise like whispering saying..”you’ll never make it out alive” then the static got louder and when i turned back all i saw was a black tuxedo and long arms….then everything went blank and i cant rememberanything after that.

  153. WhyCreepypasta.WhyScareUs?

    Hello, This Is A Similar Thing That Happened To Me, I Was In The Passenger Seat When My Dad Was Driving.. A Man In A Suit Was Standing In The Road, He Had Long Arms That Were Obviously Unhuman, We Stopped Then He Disappeared. We Carried On.Suddenly, He Appeared Again, The Wheels Of The Car Span Round And We Crashed Into A Tree. The Glass From The Window Shattered And Fell Into My Father’s Eye.. We Were Rushed Into The Hospital, We Were At The 7th Floor. As I Went To Get A Drink I Got My Crutches, Then Looked Out Of The Window The Man Stood Their. When I Looked Away Again He Got Closer, “I Must Be Hallucinating,” I Murmured. I Took A Step Back, The Suited Man Got Into The Building, I Collapsed And Screamed For Help. The Skin Of My Leg Suddenly Pealed Off, The Man Got Closer And Closer. I Screamed Again..

  154. It wasn’t what I thought it would be…. I thought it would be more creepy, easier to comprehend, You know what I mean? And he didn’t have to add in that the main character was a brunette, we can create an image in our mind of the characters how we want them to be in our heads.Besides, the last paragraph needs some improvements, it doesn’t really state whats really happening in that specific time, so the reader gets confused and can’t comprehend whats happening in the story, but besides those things, it’s a good story! ;)

  155. Hmm,
    Wasn’t the Slender Man Creepypasta based off of the
    Boogie(However you say his name) Man? Or had I heard wrong?

  156. Whatever you guys do, ABSOLUTELY do not try to search up personal info on slenderman, i.e. his real name…I made that mistake years ago and im still on the brink of paranoia

  157. I Hide in the shadows, watching you. I Slip through the woods, stalking you. When I see you, it’s already to late, for my dark evil curses, are doomed as your fate. I am your so called SlenderMan! I am the beast that haunts your child’s dreams. I am a beast, who knows no pity. You cannot hide from me. I’ll find you no matter what.

  158. Omg you guys are so funny. If you actually know about Slender you watch the Marble Hornets on youtube. They had an interview and its not true all three of them and the slender man toy they use sitting together and saying how much fun it is. RETARDS ITS NEVER GOING TO BE REAL!

  159. I enjoyed it, I liked going back to the basic slenderman stories. By chance, does any body know the original slenderman?

  160. Jane The Killer

    This is slightly sad. You all should know that “yeah, mabye Slender mans not real.” But your all dumb because no one really knows if he is real or not! Creepypastas are monsters based off URBAN LEGANDS!!! Basiclly no one knows if they are real or not.

  161. Something like this happened to me i was walking through some woods collecting pages and some guy in a tuxido was following me

  162. Ha Slenderman not real the closest thing to
    Him is probably that guy with no face
    Starring at me….oh…******* HELP

  163. The reason i haven’t gone after him yet, is because me and him have one thing in common, we both hate jeff the killer.

  164. Maybe better than my creepypasta.(Maybe)Gawd,Slendy,Quite changing your appearance.I’m ur buddy,right?YOU DNT SEE MEH CHANGIN MAH APPEARANCE!!!!!

  165. This was awesomely scarry I love it. I had seen the movie and the version I saw sucked. But I love the story.

  166. Slenderfan Pasta Dissection Time.

    It’s got a good concept and decent execution. Descriptive language was good. Felt a bit like it needed more of something though… a little bit of something… extra. Maybe that’s just me.

    A pretty decent pasta all in all. Would have liked to see a bit more to it. Felt short even for a Creepypasta.

  167. Slenderman can be whatever you want him to be. I believe in him, though. Not necessarily faceless and tree-related. But I DO believe in paranormal stuff like that. I swear to you that my house is haunted. Plus, I have reason to think so, not that those of you like me don’t, but I live IN A GRAVEYARD. Grant it, that should have been warning enough when I bought the place, but, like the idiot that I am, I spent all of my money on the place without actually looking into it. And one night I was watching a movie and I went into my kitchen and the table was flipped over. There were glasses on the table before hand to and they still were, only on the other side, in the exact same place. I know that I didn’t do that. And I don’t think that people would break in and simply turn my table over for kicks. No one is that crazy. And the back door was locked anyway. Let’s just say, that’s not even a fraction of what goes on in my house. I’ve experienced worse than this.

  168. I love Slendy. This is kinda different though.. hm… By the way, in the original Slenderman has no face at all, just blank in the revamped game Slenderman’s Shadow he has an outline of a nose and light rims where eyes should be. I wanna read an origin story for good ol’ Slendy. Somebody write about where he comes from! Is he from another world? Was he a person? Is he a demon??

  169. everybody how is this real the looks diffrent in every pic see my point but jeff the kller on the other hand is real u dont even hav to read the story lool at the pics
    all the
    same
