Splendorman (aka Splendy) is a "Happypasta", which is a parody of the Creepypasta genre. He originated as a parody of Slenderman, but now fans like to portray him as Slenderman's nicer brother. He has since gained a massive amount of popularity in the Slender Man fan-base.
Splendorman first appeared in a Marble Hornets parody from the YouTube channel "Neil Cicierega", where he was spotted by two very nice girls named Becky and Tiffany. He then proceeded to give them flowers and dance for them in order to make them happy. Towards the end of the video, he threw glitter at them.
Unlike Slenderman, Splendorman has a visible face that consists of black dots for eyes and a black mouth, but he lacks teeth (in most portrayals) and a nose. He also wears a black suit with colorful polka-dots, a bow tie (usually red, sometimes rainbow), and a top hat (of varying sizes) or less commonly a trilby hat, both seen with a red stripe. He is also very tall like Slenderman, and his hands are black, with claws on the ends of his fingertips, contrary to the Slenderman's normal-looking bare hands with lack of claws. Although his skin is usually portrayed as being the same shade as most Caucasians, he has been portrayed as being just as pale as his brother, and he is often shown to have rosy cheeks.
Although Splendorman is usually shown with tentacles, the details pertaining to his tentacles are disputed. Some say they are plain black, like his brothers, others say they have rainbow stripes or polka dots. Most agree that he has bells on the ends of them, but it's unknown if they're attached or accessories he puts on.
He is also commonly depicted as holding a golden topped cane in most of his artwork appearances.
When he is angered, he will reveal a hideous and monstrous form, his visible face would start to deform into a mutated limb face, where he would have a wide, long and large mouth with sharp and brutal teeth, his eyes and sockets will all disappear, the golden bells will transform into monsters that bite.
Splendorman is often portrayed as the Slenderman's brother and, as opposed to his brother, loves everything happy and joyful. His purpose is to cheer up people who do good deeds. He is often portrayed as happy-go-lucky, and very kind, especially to children. He often brings people gifts such as flowers.
His personal relationship with his brother is unknown, as the two are only shown together in fan art, although many fans believe Slenderman does not approve of his brother's cheerful nature and that Splendorman either does not understand his brother's behavior or disapproves of his murderous behavior. However, when he gets into a state of rage it has been said that he would turn violent and murderous.
Powers and Abilities
WARNING: The following contains speculation
Although he is not shown as often, and thus his full range of abilities is unknown, there is some evidence in his first appearance that he is capable of the following:
- Mood Enhancement - His presence seems to have an effect on humans causing them to almost immediately become happy and cheerful. This effect also seems to prevent humans from becoming startled by his presence, as Tiffany and Becky, although not expecting his appearance and supposedly trying to shoot a short film, immediately became delighted to see him, despite the introduction to the video implying they did not know what happened.
- Technology Disruption - In his first appearance, like his brother, the camera signals were disrupted, with static accompanied by pictures of cheerful things such as kittens popping up.
- Teleportation - He appears out of nowhere partway through the video.
- Glitter - In his first appearance, he at some point throws glitter at the girls, even though he is never seen carrying glitter. It is unknown if he simply had a bottle of glitter or kept glitter in his pockets, or if he somehow is able to create glitter by some unknown means.
- Bell Monsters - In some portrayals fans have said that whenever he gets angry his bells would transform into monstrous creatures that bite.
Fans also speculate that he has tentacles like his brother, but that his are more decorated, and have bells on the ends.
- Splendorman was created by Neil Cicierega for the YouTube video below.
- The idea of Slenderman, Splendorman, Trenderman, and Sexual-Offenderman being related is purely fan-made as in reality, the characters have nothing to do with each other though obviously there is nothing wrong with this portrayal.
- Splendor-Man doesn't have Proxies, he has Buddies (Buddies were portrayed to be another word for Proxies as the Happypasta version of them, those who were taken as his apprentice or as his follower would be considered to be his Buddies, their job was to support Splendor in cheering others up which they were been envy by the proxies of the Slender Man) However it is just pure fan-made.
- It has been told that the Splendor Man is weaker than the Slender Man, however there were others who claim that he's stronger than Slender Man, the fact is that it is unknown whether if Slender Man or him is stronger than each other, some say that their powers matches each other.
