This plugin adds the mysterious "Slenderman" into Minecraft. It is currently in its "Beta/Development" stage.


This plugin takes advantage of the Enderman mob and controls it to make it feel like the stalker-ish Slenderman. When installed, Slenderman will roam your world in search of players. The player will know he/she is being stalked because drums will start to beat, indicating Slenderman is watching him/her (configurable). In order to "escape" the Slenderman, the player must simply survive until he goes away. However, if the player is caught by the Slenderman, he/she will be sent to the Nether (configurable) with slowness and nausea, along with a message saying the Slenderman has caught him/her.


Slenderman has a few mechanics I thought I should reveal.

  • He will only begin stalking his prey at night by default. This is because of the enderman's default coding.
  • Looking at him will result in damage and static build-up, along with sound.
  • Your health is inversely proportional to how aggressive the Slenderman is. (lower health, higher difficulty)
  • If he is close and you look at him, you will be "shocked". This puts you in an adrenaline state.
  • No, you cannot kill him.


aggro: 500 #This is how aggressive the slenderman is. Higher values mean he will attack more often.
slender_dimension: "world_nether" #This is where caught players are sent. Setting this to an empty string "" will kill the player instead.
drums: true #Drums play to indicate the slenderman is near.
anytime: false #Can Slenderman spawn during the daytime?
sounds: true #Enable/disable sounds. If you are using 1.2.5 or lower, set this to FALSE
static: true #Enable/disable static effects
worlds: ["world"] #Slenderman's active worlds. He will only roam these worlds. List like this: ["world1","world2","world10"...]
slow_dur: 5000 #Duration of slowness effect (when caught) in ticks
confusion_dur: 500 #Duration of nausea effect (when caught) in ticks


/slenderman reload - Reload slenderman's configuration file (not working?)

/slenderman target [player_name] - Set slenderman's target, provided the target is valid.

/slenderman location - Get the slenderman's location.

Alias: slender


slenderman.admin: ops - Permission to use Slenderman commands.

slenderman.exempt: ops - Slenderman will not follow players with this permission.


The source can be found on GitHub, which is open to the public.


This is in order of priority (Highest to lowest)

  • Improve Slenderman's teleport code. It's too predictable.
  • Improve Slenderman's "halt-on-seen" code.
  • Add configuration for Slenderman to spawn in specific areas on the map.
  • "Slender-ism Mode" in which 8 pages must be collected.
  • Slenderman skin. Of course, this will be difficult to implement.

    Slenderman skin. Will you use Spout for that?

    @rubberducky42: Go

    The plugin is CaSe-SeNsItIvE, are you sure that you wrote it right? Also, this world's files are corrupt or not?

    One thing, how do you make slenderman stop chasing a player?

    -A riddle wrapped in a mystery- Soon I will learn to code and create my own plugins!
