Trenderman is a meme and spinoff of the Slenderman. Unlike Slenderman he is not a myth but intended as a parody.
The origins of Trenderman can be traced back to Tumblr user Conjured Charisma who, on July 31st, 2012, took a pictured photograph and posted it on his blog under the title "Slenderman’s Casual Friday". However, the "Trenderman" name and the character's further relationship as a relative of Slenderman were coined on August 1st of that year by Tumblr user "I Lack Tact" as a response to another user commenting on the photo.
Trenderman looks somewhat like his cousin Slenderman, but with a brown sweater (sometimes portrayed as a sweater vest), a white undershirt, and brown pants. His skin is also darker than Slender Man's, being between his white and a normal human tan skin.
In some pictures, however, he is just as pale as his cousin. His clothes also change sometimes, since a fashionable person can't wear the same outfit all the time. Fans usually depict him with white tentacles. Some fans have also taken to drawing him with glasses.
He is often portrayed as a drama queen who can not stand people who go for the "swag" look or who wear crocs. He also is shown as somewhat self-absorbed due to his fashion sense. He often becomes overly enthusiastic about helping others find better outfits so that others can become more fashionable.
Whether this is because of a need to help others or intolerance for what he perceives as unfashionable outfits are left up to interpretation.
Trenderman is sometimes portrayed trying to convince Slenderman to wear something more fashionable.
Power and Abilities
It is unknown if he has any special abilities other than his keen fashion sense, though some portray him with tendrils on his back like his cousins, mainly white ones like Sexual Offenderman.
- Trenderman was technically created by now-defunct Tumblr user I Lack Tact, as they originally gave him the name and the relationship to Slenderman.
- The idea of Slenderman, Splendorman, Trenderman, and Sexual Offenderman being related is purely fanmade as in reality, the characters have nothing to do with each other though obviously there is nothing wrong with this portrayal.
- He hates crocs with a burning passion.
