Slenderman is a fictional character made famous from the 2012 horror video game Slender: The Eight Pages, although the myth of Slenderman actually emerged as an internet meme created by a Something Awful forum user named Eric Knudsen in 2009. Players believe that Slenderman can be found in GTA San Andreas and GTA V.
Slenderman is said to be commonly located somewhere in the country, possibly in Whetstone or in Shady Creeks. Slenderman is believed to be able to teleport wherever he wants using special supernatural powers. In the video game Slenderman: The Eight Pages, the player has to wander through a thick forest to search for eight pages, while Slenderman continuously follows him. Slenderman also hunts the player in the sequel, Slender:The Arrival.
However, the Slenderman myth was created in 2009, five years after Grand Theft Auto San Andreas was released in 2004, making this myth very unlikely. However, this myth is popularly believed to be revived from sightings of supposedly Slenderman dating back to 1600's up until present day. In 2013, in GTA V, players said that an odd transparent thing appear in the bushes at night in Great Chaparral, but most of the evidence is Photoshopped, even though GTA V was released 4 years after Slenderman myths were created, which makes it more believable.
