EverymanHYBRID (EMH) was a Slender Man-based YouTube series/ARG, that also makes use of the Rake. EMH is the third largest, and second-longest running major Slender Man series. EMH takes heavy influence from MarbleHornets, but over time has taken more of its own course. EMH makes the heaviest use of fan interaction among the five major ARGs, through use of interactive games, twitter, interaction with Slenderblogs, live streams and meetings with fans.
Currently, EMH has 84 episodes and 6 "hidden" videos, which were most likely added by the series' main antagonist: HABIT. EMH is chiefly responsible for forming the modern mythos of the Rake, and secondly responsible for forming the modern mythos of Slender Man. The series was eventually concluded with the video "Introductions" on January 1, 2019, after a run of eight years.

Origin and History
EMH was created originally as a health video vlog by friends Vincent, Evan, and Jeff. Later appearances are made by Jeff's brother Alex and Damsel from Slenderblog CANYOUSEETHEWORDS The three originally intend to prank the audience by creating a fake Slender Man and placing it in their videos, in obvious places. However, after Episode 6, things go south as the real Slenderman appears in Evan's house.
The videos since that initial sighting record the friends' attempts to unravel a mystery concerning their pasts, an unknown puppeteer known as HABIT, Slenderman, the Rake, and viewers, in which they are all involved in ways they do not understand.
What is assumed to be HABIT posts videos on the EMH channel that the characters are seemingly unable to see.

- Ryan - Another close friend of the EMH crew, though mainly a minor character in the series. He is the first person to be invited into the Seven Trials of HABIT. After refusing to play the trials, he was pulled out of his car and killed while driving. It is unknown of who killed him, but it is speculated that The Rake was the one who killed him because he said he heard whispering. Something Rake is heard doing in multiple videos.

It is also to note that EMH did a crossover with TribeTwelve, and thus all characters in TT are connected of the EMH universe. In this crossover, characters from DarkHarvest00 appeared, however, this was a cameo. A second TribeTwelve crossover occurred after an appearance by HABIT in DEUS EX MACHINA. However, the events of this crossover (Severance and Brige to Nowhere) are mostly unconnected to the overall story in EMH.
EMH makes heavy use of distortion, as influenced by MarbleHornets, when in the vicinity of Slender Man. EMH is the first series to connect multiple creepypasta entities and media, through including the Rake, possible references to Candle Cove, having an appearance and references to House of Leaves, and being intertwined with at least one slenderblog in its plot. Fan interaction is also important, with several videos posted by fans being crucial to the storyline.
