because people like captainsparklez played the game recently and they suddenly got in love with the game, when most probably haven't even played it. And the people watching fell in love with it.

He started becoming Popular again due to someone releasing the Slender game. This in turn, scared the CRAP out of people. So they googled "Slenderman" and found out about him. SO this is why he is so popular all of a sudden.

He started getting popular because youtube stars have played the game slender, and they freak out, but still play it. Me for example, heard about slenderman a LONG time ago, then started taking a interest when slender came out. So I think its because of the game slender :P

It is because it is one of the few games that can scare the living crap out of you. If you think about it, I can't think of a single game that was able to do that. Deadspace and Silent Hill were also scary and they made millions of those games.

no slender man became popular because they had a meme contest for the worst paranormal being and then when they were taking a picture of slenderman someone thought it was real so the game and other stuff happened.
By the way if you also want the answer please diamond so more people can answer if they see this on the popular reel. If we get this popular a lot of people can find out the answer so please diamond or favorite or both:D.

Ok, I see everyone is very un-aware of what actually made The Slender-Man famous, so i'l start from the beginning. SlenderMan was posted on the SomethingAwful forums, made by Victor Surge. Later, Parsec Productions made the game SLENDER:The 8 Pages. 1/3 the 100000000 people who have played the game searched slender-man up, and the 2/3 got a chain-mail saying "D(x)n't L(x)(x)k behind y(x)u" from a e-mailer named "The Survivor". And that brings us to the 3/3 part of it. It was all gamers who got scared on youtube.
There, that is the true beginning of Slender-Man.

I kinda feel about slender as if i had my idea stolen. I am not saying i was going to make a game or anything! but one day a couple weeks before Slender even came out I got interested in Endermen and wanted to study them, I found out that Notch based them off of the Slenderman, and theeeen! i started to study Slendermen! and got all interested in it and then a couple of days later Slender came out. =P

The Slender Man is a faceless abomination;

Tall, Thin and Faceless, and always wears a suit.

He's also got tentacles.

However, now comes the worst part:

In the night, he steals children.

He kills or drives people insane, or simply makes them go missing.

No one knows why.

And no one ever will.

He's appeared in ancient folklore, long before Victor Surge posted the original photos.

Der Ritter. 'The Knight.'

The Tall Man.

Der Groà mann.

All are just a few of his many names.


He's watching you, even now.

And waiting.
