What do you guys think they would feel like and how strong would they be?

I myself think they would feel like snake skin and are just all muscle.

Your thoughts?

Well, Slendy tentacles are usually portrayed as just a wiggling lines behind him most of the time, but there was a TribeTwelve video that showed him having suction cup-like anomalies on his tentacles, so I'm guessing that in part with him being a multidimensional stalker, his tentacles are completely cold and numbing to the touch, and the suction cup like things just add to it.

As for how strong they are, most people use his tentacles to rip people apart. I think that's the simple way to sum it up.

I sort have always imagined them as flexible sharp branches .. Like slenderman has a super natural ability to bend his branch like "tentacles" and grow them .. sort of like there big flexible bones protruteing from his back..

I've always thought of them as slippery, black, wavy things. They would be moving at a very uncanny speed, and woukd only sprout when Sleny is REALLLY pissed off. As for the touch...I immagine something that is cold to to the touch but also feels like a slug just slid along the part they touched...leaving a slippeery and almost slimy feel. They should have a good dea of strenght behind them, being able to give someone a severe whip to the face, or strangle them to death with one of them...but not rip people apart. That's the proxies job.

I'm guessing you haven't read any of the stories with him lifting people in the air and tearing them in half. They exist.

I always imagine them as cold, wet air wrapping around whatever they touch. From the point of where they touch, they send a sort of numbing, yet buzzing feeling through the body, sort of like a venom of sorts.

In the dream in which this happened, I think I described it as pure darkness wrapping itself around you. :O

But I don't know, that's just what I imagine.

I think they would feel like an octopuses, and I bet they would be very strong.

They are the darkness. The darkness is ever-present, with the strength of a hundred black holes and the chill of empty space. They can grow and stretch, and shrink and shrivel. They can manifest spikes, suction cups, gales of wind, storms of flame. He is Lord of the Unknown, and the Darkness is His Throne.

The Darkness can feel like wisps of smoke, bars of steel, or the Cold itself. His Will brings it life, and his Will brings it death. The touch itself can kill, or it could numb, or it could produce hallucinations. The touch of Darkness can even bring the dead to life.

That is what I believe that His tendrils are and can do. Whether He ever shows these traits is up to Him (and by "him" I mean the authors).

My image would be just cold or no feeling at all. Like death. You die, people theory that you don't feel the pain in the last moments. Once slenderman could possibly kill someone quickly would it just be painless even though its terrible? And id say strong. he looks weak and frail, two ideas i have either they are his stronger side or they just keep coming, regrowing if cut down.

On the other hand i have heard of the stories that he just "Tickles" the person then goes away. I bet it would leave a frost, leave a mark that couldnt be removed. its feeling of the chill wouldn't leave.

When Surge first created him, the concept of Slendy's extra arms was that they were long branches. T12 displays them as tentacles, and MH doesn't show Slender Man ever having any extra limbs. Everybody has their own style of what He looks like. I personally like the idea of having branch-like limbs. I picture them as sleek black spider legs, that can impale things, rip people in half, and that kind of stuff. Head Tilt

In my opinion, this is a matter of perception. to some, his tentacles will never appear, only a never-seen device to scare them with what COULD be there (MH). In other stories, they are sharp and jagged, much like the branches of the forests he inhabits (My favorite type). other times it is an identifier that he is definitely NOT human, a scare tactic to send his victims running (T12). Many stories has him actually use them, but as I say, they are different according to the victim and his/her perception/expectations. as to the feel, same thing-depends on the person.

I figured that they'd be slimy and made of pure muscle, at least the ones from Tribe Twelve, which is what I most often picture Slendy's tentacles like.

Mehh I know this is a tad off topic but im honestly sick of proxies there overused and slenderman should be able to injure/hurt people without the help of those dman "proxies"

I always think of them as kind of like tendrils of smoke. I think Slenderman is a sort of immaterial entity and the tendrils are just a manifestation of that fact. He may be able to use them for things but I'm not sure what...

I agree with this. In my mind they don't have a texture, they're just cold and dread. And yes, they are capable of tearing people apart. I've always thought that Slendy seemed too quiet; too reserved. Makes me want to see him obliterate a city block, ripping and tearing, cutting and splitting. Blood flowing thick in the gutters of the street, screams rending the air.

But I guess I'm just sort of creepy, lol.

I don't think they'd "feel" like anything - I think, like the Slender Man himself, the matter they are made of is so inimical to our reality that it probably can't be considered to be matter at all.

Faced with such a sensation, the human nervous system would just shut down at worse, or fail to acknowledge anything at best.

In a mythos with no canon, all of these can stand. However I prefer mine to be long and flexible but with the capability to go rigid enough to push off or stand on (akoolstick and osirischronicles :3)

I'd have to agree.
I have read stories of him leaving marks with them. So they have to have some large enough mass to harm something.

So ya, flexible but can become rigid, kinda like Bat Mans's cape.

Lethery, maybe the skin a little bit soft. Maybe they'd be hard, Idk. I like to think they're sort of like a hard swimming noodle.

I'd say the same as you papermouths, I'd imagine the tentacles to be strong with a snake skin like scaly-ness to it.
I'd say they'd be comparable to that of a Boa Constrictor...obviously without the actual head.

I always just imagine them to be almost like solid shadow, or maybe have a texture like skin. Maybe they're just actual shadows that can hold things when necessary? I dunno.

[Up until recently I thought they were solidified shadows that manifest in a physical form.]
[Specifically, I was under the impression that his tendrils were lightwaves of darkness so intense that they solidified, stealing molecules and atoms out of other things to manifest in a solidified physical form.]
[In this sense, if he were to steal the oxygen out of the air in the area around him it would leave, perhaps, just the carbon monoxide pollutes, causing light-headedness or something of the nature and making it easier to break into his target's psyche and recruit them as a proxy.]
[It could also work vice versa, I suppose, and that would also make sense as to why his tendrils are black (other than the whole 'pure darkness' business) if he were to collect molecules of pure pollution out of the atmosphere around him, thus thinning the air and making it harder to breath?]

I've always thought of them like extra arms, that he extends whenever he feels, with hands and all.
They would come out of his back like branches, adding joints if they get too long.

I'd think they'd feel just like his arms, with fabric sleeves and hands and they'd have to be strong enough to lift his own body weight like how some pictures show him.

I imagine Slender Man's tentacles to be shadow without physical form and only visible when Slendy intends to use them. I would imagine them to be icy cold with the ability to pass through solid objects and even pluck the soul from a person's body.
I do however also think that they can physically hold an object if desired and function like physical appendages. But generally I believe, they are incorporeal.
