PostSubject: Wounding the Slender Man   Mon Nov 12, 2012 10:35 pm

Say someone found a way to kill Slender Man in their series, or just stop it for a really long time. What do you think would happen? Earthquakes, your death, reversal of time to the point before all the lead up events occurred? Anyone have some interesting thoughts or ideas?

Edit: Changed title from "Killing" to "Wounding"

It just wouldn't happen at all. The whole thing with Core Theory was that slender man could be killed, and look how that turned out

Well in terms of "making him go away". If you were to do something that was harmful or had a negative effect on Slender Man, what might happen that caused some sort of physical damage to surroundings or anything in that case? I don't really mean kill him, what I mean is not make his a factor to worry about for awhile. Like beating a monster back to where it came from.

Honestly, I wouldn't recommend it. One of the things that makes Slender Man scary is that he can't be killed. Lose that, you lose a lot of your scare powers.

But makin teh slendrmayun distorshun effects is soo harrrrrrddddd D:

Okay then. Let's say one were hit him with a baseball ba... actually never mind. See, my theory is that the only things that can do any sort of damage, although minor, are his own creations. Since in my storyline the Slender Man created physical manifestations of creepy pastas that he found would be a deadly secondary in case the work was too minor for him, I feel like what ever damage is done that rids me of him being a problem needs to be by Jeff or the Rake or something. So say Jeff turns on Slendy and stabs him. What happens, if anything?

Does Slendy just teleport away and all the monsters follow, or does something big happen like a time rip or mass destruction?

For one, you'd need to have a reason for one of his minions hurting him. For two, I still don't think it's a good idea. Everything you've told me about your story, I like. That, not so much. Again, it's much scarier having an unbeatable horror than have an Almost-but-if-this-were-to-happen Horror.

I'll just be an Evan and smack a badly shopped Slender Man with a blunt object so I can finish off this container of fake blood already. Thanks for the input, it helps Very Happy

Don't get mad at me. I, personally, think it's a bad idea. I'm not stopping you from doing it.

Edit: Sorry. Got this on my ipod. Siley didn't show up. Glad I could help Very Happy

Well I don't know about hurt, and certainly not kill. But I think something could slow him slightly, maybe? I am going to include a kind of weapon against Slender Man in my vlog, but all it does is stop the distortion.

I think Slender Man being able to be hurt in any way does take away the horror element in the mythos...

Well, there was an instance where someone had chopped off Slender Man's arm, but that's not a very prime example. The blog's called Breaker.

For instance, THIS is what it looks like to us Slenderfans.

Well then... that seems interesting. After watching that I lost hope in trying it so I'll just re-kill the Rake.

wait... what did he do with the arm? eat it? :S

Yep. Ate the whole damn thing. And got Slender Man powers.

I'd imagine it'd be a lot like stabbing the Witch King in the face.

As previous people say, it would make his character a lot less scary... I imagine him having some kind of telekinetic (is that what is is?) powers where he can kind of deflect/stop anything about to hurt him. For example, incoming bullets.

You can't really hurt him, because he's tethered to another dimension. When he comes to our dimension, any time someone tried to damage him it wouldn't register because he's not truly here, just appearing here.

Well there was the blog where a whole group of Marines and Army guys tried to attack him, and he killed them all. So probably not.

I did at one point write a story where the protagonist uses something sharp with the Operator symbol on it to wound him, although the idea of that symbol being something that wards Slendy off is not a theory that all fans subscribe to.

I would suspect that if you actually attacked him, he'd find some way to make the attack hit either you or someone you cared about instead. And even if you could actually kill him there's no guarantee he'd stay dead. But you would. It could even be that if you do somehow, by some incredibly slim margin, manage to kill him, you become him and lose who you are in the process, which I think is a neat and actually kind of horrific idea (Body horror + loss of identity? No thank you.), but again that is a theory that not all fans subscribe to.

So, long story short, you're not going to kill him. Ever. Because he's unkillable. But if you did manage to somehow wound him it would probably end badly for you no matter what.

Yeah, I must agree that he's "unkillable." I'm open to new concepts, like maybe what the above poster mentioned about becoming him if you kill him. But even in a standalone book I would vote against killing him permanently. It really makes him less scary, as everyone has said, and I would read/watch these stories for the purpose of being terrified and in a state of wonderment at what he's doing and how much power he has. For me, I feel a need to be in awe of the Slender Man character whenever he appears on camera or in a written scene...if it's established he can be killed, then I'm not in awe anymore- he's just some worthless monster.

On the other hand, I'd say that he can be wounded, but not permanently wounded. If it's established that he's immortal ^ then hurting him really doesn't serve a purpose. If he must be hurt for a scene, I'd imagine that it would be extremely difficult, especially in the real world. Noah shot at him, but nothing came of that that I know of. The bullets seemed to sort of disappear. Not even deflect, but just disappear. Maybe not even go anywhere. So if he can ignore bullets, I'd bet he could also easily ignore/stop a mere human trying to stab him, whatever.

This is all just my opinion though. Nothing has to be a certain way. If you think you can write/make something well enough, then go ahead and try. I don't like to say there are restrictions to what one can do with their imagination.

The story I am writing does feature an injury to the Slender Man. However, the injury is hard won, does not take place on this world, and the character (who nicks him in the side), is killed about half a second later due to being distracted for that half second....and then Slendy heals himself no problem. I mainly used the injury as symbolism and a catalyst for something else, not as a means of saying Slendy can be hurt. After this, I establish that there's really no point in psychically fighting him. :/

I like your idea of Slendy being able to heal himself in that slim event that he is wounded. That makes a lot of sense to me, seeing as he can do just about everything else.

wanting to hurt the monster, this sounds familiar!

For those of you who don't recall the old days, that was the entire concept behind my first blog, a hint of serendipity.

Didn't Slendy die at the end of Wendigo?

I believe he did, but then again Wendigo is a Slender Man film that isn't very praised in the Slenderverse, and that might be going against Slender Man lore, considering the fact that it's theorized that he's immortal.

Oh, I didn't realize that it wasn't held in high regard, I personally enjoyed it. On the other hand I can understand where you are coming from with the whole immortal entity theory.

Well, when I say "not highly praised", I mean by a lot of the Slenderverse fans. I enjoyed it at quite a few parts, but it still could have been better.

Understood, but it does bring up the question of what would happen if someone did succeed in killing him. Who would take his place?
