First Appearance

The Jeanette Experience

The first portrayal of the Fear of Strangers, the Smiling Man is a dangerous humanoid that wants to hurt people. In most stories, the Smiling Man has straggly red hair and a smile wider than its face. Although it has eyes, they are so "wrong" that victims cannot look at them. Photographs or videos will only show black spots where the eyes should be. It is also commonly portrayed wearing a suit or a torn straightjacket.

It is often written walking or dance-walking down nearly empty streets. It has been known to follow victims in a dancelike run, pursuing them for miles. It will attempt to break into any shelter its victims hide themselves in. Before it takes its victims, the Smiling Man will deliver a bouquet of flowers to them arranged in the language of flowers, presenting coded messages. Its most common targets are young women, but that does not mean it will not go after humans of different ages and genders.

In The Jeanette Experience and its related blogs, it has a fondness for burning, gouging out, and otherwise damaging people's eyes. It is also indicated in the same blog series that it is unkillable, as demonstrated by his perpetual appearance in spite of being repeatedly shot apart by Jeanette. Proxiehunter speculated that this is because the Smiling Man is a plant based creature that can recreate its body with vegetation.

In Mephi, the Smiling Man has the ability to create petals from thin air that create cuts and gashes when they touch skin.

Its servants are called Rose Brides.

The Smiling Man's domain is Flower Fields.
