|“||Hello everybody, my name's Markiplier, and...||”|
He mainly uploads playthroughs of various video games, most notably horror games such as Neverending Nightmares, Amnesia: The Dark Descent, SCP – Containment Breach, and Five Nights at Freddy's. His full-toned voice, in-depth style of gameplay, commentary, and multiple charitable acts have spanned a highly successful YouTube career.
On November 15, 2019, Markiplier and Ethan revealed a channel named Unus Annus. They promised to delete it after one year, hence the name being "One Year" in Latin. True to their word, they deleted the channel at midnight on November 14, 2020.

Mark was born in the Tripler Army Medical Center on Honolulu, O'ahu, Hawaii, and was raised in Cincinnati, Ohio. He is half-Korean from his mother and half-German from his father, but despite his background, he is only fluent in English. He has attempted to speak Portuguese and other languages, but as per usual, it ended horribly. However, he knows some basic Korean courtesy of his mother.
Mark's father passed away after a year long battle with lung cancer in July 4, 2008, when Mark was 19, which caused him to become very depressed. Mark studied to become a biomedical engineer at the University of Cincinnati but dropped out of college because it was too stressful for him.
Mark often hosts monthly charity live streams, (almost all of which are on a Saturday around the middle to end of the month) in which he raises money to donate to charities like the Cincinnati Children's Hospital. He and his community have raised $1,118,645.14 in total and the number grows with every live stream. He currently resides in Los Angeles, California. Along with being a successful YouTuber, he is also an aspiring singer and songwriter.
In a 2019 video by Wired Mark said that he is liberal.. Mark also starred in the music video/song from Starbomb for Egoraptor. There, he sang. He portrayed the announcer for the new "family" game known as "Super Smash Brothers".
In a collaboration with the channel "Good Mythical Morning", he played the Phone Guy in a song they wrote about Five Nights at Freddy's. While collaborating with other YouTuber, and close friend, Matthias, in challenges such as the Disney Song challenge and the "Never Have I Ever" game, he admitted to taking a few singing lessons.
He is currently practicing by himself to improve his musical skill through voice and instruments, which gained interest around the middle of 2017 and he performed at VIP shows on his first tour, The You're Welcome Tour.
Mark has had a somewhat successful acting career in his life. He has done acts for a variety of films and TV shows, particularly "Smosh: The Movie" and Disney's "Gamer's Guide to Pretty Much Everything". He has also been in multiple YouTube videos that involve him acting. Many sketches made by his friend and fellow YouTuber Matthias feature him, such as "Let's Play: Real Life", "REAL LIFE MINECRAFT", and "Google In Real Life". He is rather good at it and has said he has lots of fun doing it. He has also acted in Bart Baker's music video parodies of Meghan Trainor's "Lips are Movin'" and Jason Derulo's "Wiggle" as well as NinjaSexParty's "Cool Patrol". He also lent his voice in the ninth episode of TomSka's "asdf movie" series.
Mark has also made high-production sketches in which he and his friends display their acting skills. In February 2017, Mark posted "A Date With Markiplier", a "choose your own adventure" style sketch that has over 20 videos and 10 possible endings. Filmed and edited within the span of a week, it was met with very high praise from fans and is said to be a testament to the vigilance and effort of Mark and his team. It was also the first video that, at least in Mark's eyes, truly captured the personality of the evil alter ego, Darkiplier.
Mark has also done voice work for video games, TV shows, and other YouTube channels. He voiced himself in the video game "PewDiePie: Legend of the Brofist", and even PewDiePie himself said that he was a very good voice actor. On Game Theory, he was featured in the intro of the 2nd Five Nights at Freddy's 4 Theory on the channel, where he says it was him who is the purple guy and that "it's not just a theory". In his Reading Your Comments series, he said that he was the voice actor for the character 5.0.5 in the Mexican Cartoon Network animation Villanous. He has also done voiceovers in videos for Game Explain and DidYouKnowGaming?.
In October 2019, Mark launched his YouTube 'Choose Your Own Adventure' series called A Heist with Markiplier, where he played every main character throughout the series, ranging from a thief, pirate, adventurer, and prisoner. The series has a heavy comical undertone, not treating itself too seriously, allowing Mark to improvise many of the lines. On the 10th annual of the Streamy Awards taking place on December 12, 2020, A Heist with Markiplier won the Streamy Awards for Scripted Series.
Mark plays with a style contrasting that of many other Let's Players on YouTube. While some, such as ChaoticMonki, play with a subdued, sarcastic, and sometimes panicked mood and others such as PewDiePie play with a constantly confused, panicked, and action-packed way, Mark plays with a mixture of both. When things are quiet, he thinks and calms down before trying to solve the puzzle.
Mark commonly takes on an exaggerated facade of courage and bravado when clear of danger, proclaiming his superhuman strength, bravery, and incredible good looks. He (jokingly) overstates either his gaming skills, or his incompetence with solving puzzles, and threatens off-screen monsters, and sometimes real people, with a variety of awkward-often chair related-violence.
Upon the appearance of an enemy, he often panics, giving his trademark screams and fleeing towards the nearest available closet. Upon the escape from the threat, his smooth attitude returns and so do his jeers of derision towards the game's antagonist.
However, on games such as I AM BREAD, Super Mario Maker, Getting Over It with Bennett Foddy, or any nonsensical puzzle, he goes into a fit of rage. He is often very fired up while playing such games. He often describes this as "World-Ending Rage."
Alongside his suave and sonorous voice, Mark has a well-trained eye for quality in games, praising creative or innovative features, especially physics. He's willing to play a game through to its end despite any faults it may have, even particularly bad ones, showing his appreciation for all games.
After playing a game, he will often pause for a minute before ending the video to talk about the quality of the game, what it did and didn't do well, as well as giving the developer advice as to how to make the game better.
Mark has a special place in his heart for his fans and has shown it numerous times during vlogs and milestone videos. He had been going through a rough patch in his life before he started doing YouTube and making people laugh, and posting videos of him playing games was the thing that kept him going. It still keeps him going today, actually. In every milestone video, Mark has shown his appreciation and love for his fans, saying that he would be nowhere without them and he believes that every single one of them has the potential to change the world.
Mark often says that he believes that with the right person leading the community, they can do amazing things and do so much good in the world, they just need to be pushed in the right direction.
In his 3 Million Subscriber Milestone video, the love and support he gives his fans and how he wants the best for all of them, with them wanting the same for him, can be seen throughout the video. The community they share is known for being one of the most positive fanbases on YouTube, some saying possibly that it may be the best on the internet as a whole. Most fanbases like PewDiePie tend to be more "wild" than Mark's, but the community on Mark's channel is living proof that if all the fans can share the same common goal, they can become a group that literally do anything they can put their minds to, and Mark is determined to make sure that that opportunity doesn't go to waste.
Mark has been known for his "floof" hair for a long time and for his former signature red hair. He has dyed his hair pink, blue, purple and obviously red a few times in the past.
Black is his natural hair color. He has returned to the look since ever since December 30, 2016 (even though when returning to the color his hair was dyed black on top of the fading red hair so for a few months the faded red was visible but just looked slightly tinted).
Blonde / Pink
Mark, along with Jacksepticeye, dyed their hair pink and green respectively on September 11, 2015, as a result of reaching a charity goal a few days beforehand. Mark's hair was bleached blonde at first and pink was applied right after, which resulted in the tips being a faded blonde as his hair faded weeks after, then the roots faded to light pink.
Purple / Blue
On February 22, 2016, Mark dyed his hair a mix of purple and blue with gray bleach underneath again. This was his shortest-lived hair color.
On March 4, 2016, Mark dyed his hair red, which was a fan favorite and Mark's favorite as well. He let it grow out with occasional red dye replenishments until September 17, 2016, when it was fully redyed with the roots then got it dyed black on top on December 30, 2016, then eventually completely faded along with the black dye a few months later.
Wilford Warfstache is the most popular alter ego of Mark. He is the pink mustache wearing a journalist and reporter. Wilford is somewhat of the mascot of Mark's channel. Wilford is also a cold-hearted killer, known to have murdered almost 10 people, including a couple, their neighbor, a baby, a dog, Tyler Scheid, Septiplier and Mark, himself.
At the conclusion of the series 'Who Killed Markiplier?', his 'origin' has been revealed. Wilford was once a character named the Colonel, who was in the news because of a safari that went wrong. He was a friend of the characters mayor Damien and Celine, who he had an affair with. At the end of 'Who Killed Markiplier?', he went crazy upon seeing the viewer's body come back to life and refused to take life and death seriously anymore.
Darkiplier is Mark's evil doppelganger Unlike Mark, he says morbid, dark, and disturbing things to the viewers. Mark has clarified that he views Darkiplier as a "dangerous social manipulator", and thus played him as such in "A Date With Markiplier". Mark has hinted that Darkiplier doesn't have a shadow in "A Date With Markiplier".
The conclusion of the series 'Who Killed Markiplier?' his 'origin' is revealed much like Wilford's. He is the result of the merging of the characters Celine and mayor Damien, who was trapped in an alternate dimension after Celine dabbled too much in the dark arts and got possessed by 'the spirit' of the mansion they were in. They promised the viewer to let them in, so they can fix this. Upon awakening, they shoved the viewer out of their body into the mirror, leaving a broken shell. The newly-made Darkiplier then walks away with burning anger, out for vengeance.
Mark's portrayal of Santa Claus is an evil and sadistic parody of the usually jolly loveable Santa Claus. He often refers to his elves as "Bastard Kiddies".

Mark also has a twisted version of Hershel Greene from The Walking Dead.

Annus is a version of Mark that had One year to live, and died on November 14, 2020. Annus came from a channel called "Unus Annus," One year in Latin.
In January 2016, Mark gained controversy after he posted a video of a horror game called "The Hospital". The reason why it is controversial is that the jumpscares in the game are actual pictures of gore, which include a person's face after having it being skinned, and a nude woman's corpse being dismembered by an unknown person wearing a suit and gloves. The video has not been taken down, and can still be found on Mark's channel, it is unknown if Mark knows that the jumpscares are real images of gore or not.
On April 11, 2016, Mark posted a video titled "YouTube Has Changed", in which he discussed the problems that he thought plagued YouTube. This was during the influx of drama-related events in 2016, and many of his fans and other YouTubers, particularly GradeAUnderA, said that he was "inciting drama". Mark has yet to comment on the criticism nor GradeAUnderA's video, but it is assumed that this is because he was trying to avoid more drama.

Dead Space 3 (February 2013)
- [in the prologue, as Tim; when he jumps over a chasm in the cliff while rappelling down] "Ohhh, piss!"
- "Man, this is cool! This is like a f**kin' adventure game right here! I mean, I always thought that the guys at Visceral [Games] were always creative. What is that?!"
- [That last part was because the ship he was escaping was about to come down on him.]
- "Haha! This guy seems to have a – oh, I'm actually playing here!"
Ao Oni (August 2013)
- [to his phone] "Shaddup!" [groaning, then laughing] "...It's my mom!"
- [after finally pushing his first chair; pauses] "...OH, COME ON! How was I supposed to [know I had to] do that?! You son of a b***h!"
- "If there was just - just – a purple monster sitting in a corner, waiting for me to walk over it, I would s**t myself dry. I would absolutely lose all control of my bowels!"
- "Why is this good? Why is this good?" [Ao Oni bursts in.] "AAGH - ! …What the hell?! How was I supposed to do anything?! What was that?!"
- "Oh, if that blue bastard, is just stickin' around -" [find a candle stand, which startles him] *gasp* "...That's new!"
- "You suggested?! The big bubble-blown baby suggested?!"
- [A hanged body hits the floor, startling Mark] "...! Was he there the whole time?!"
- Mark: [after unwillingly accepting Takuro into the party] "No, I don't trust you! I don't trust you as far as I can throw you! You're all of those monsters. Why would I trust him?! Why in a million years?! I saw him get garbled! …I guess I didn't see him get garbled…"
[Mark's character enters the area where he needs an item from his inventory one last time.]
- Mark: [as he opens the menu] "But I'm gonna go on a limb - " [In Takuro's place on the party window is a blue monster.] " - and assume that - " [realizing what he's seeing] " - AAAHHH!"
[Mark quickly exits the menu as he tries to escape. Unfortunately, he runs his character straight into the monster.]
- Mark: [realizing what had just happened] "…Auh, I walked right into him." [pauses, then laughs] "That was good! That was good, game! That was well done. That [sic] – You son of a b***h, that was very well done! That was good. That was very good! Oh-ho, my gawd!"
Calm Time (Nov. 23, 2013)
- "'HELP! HE KILLED HER! HE STABBED HER WITH A KITCHEN KNIFE!' …I'm very sorry."
- "'Press Control to calm yourself'." [breathes and presses Control key] "Oh, that just crouches me. How does that calm myself?"
- "Oh my god, that is so morbid!"
- "Good god! Don't do that to me! I'm not in a disposition to handle that – wait a minute. ...Uh... Lady...? Are you... Are you that lady, but in ghost -" [Cell phone in background] "Shut up; I don't have time for this!"
- "Oh my god...! That was incredibly loud!"
- "That scared the buhjeezus outta me!"
- "Aauuh, I don't wanna kill the kid!" … "Aw, that's so sad! I'm not gonna kill him. Well, I'm not gonna kill him first, anyway."
- "What is that? Is that Slender Man?!" [gets closer] "Oh, no. Sorry; I saw that thing; it looked like a giant, white box-head."
- "Nonononono...! You don't see anything..."
- [when the ghost woman appears behind him] "WWWWhoa-kay, back up there, lady...!"
- "...Dammit, where the hell are these guys? They're nowhere to be found."
- "Jeezus, lady, you need to stop that right now. I do not take kindly to that...! You're being very creepy...!"
- [when he finally attacks the child] "No – aw, no, no, no! Aw, no! Auh, I feel so bad! But remember, guys: this is just a game..." [nerves himself, then puts the child out of his misery, to put it bluntly; palms his forehead in shame] "Nhhhh... That's awful!" [turns to find the ghost woman standing behind him again] "Jeezus! Stop that, lady!"
- Bob "muyskerm": [immediately after eating raw chicken; recoils] "Oh, good gozzit! Oh my god!"
- Mark: "What? What d'you do?"
- Bob: "I-I... I ate it..."
- Mark: "Ohhhh."
- Bob: [gasps] "Oh, my god, I just threw up!"
- Mark: [starts laughing]
- Bob: "That was the most horrifying thing that's ever happened to me! I think I have salmonella! ...What the f...?!"
- Mark: "You know - "
- Bob: "Oh, my god! I'm throwing up! Do you hear that sound?!"
- Mark: "I do not!"
- Bob: "Oh my god, that's horrifying!" [pulls off his headphones]
- Mark: "I wish I was recording that!"
- Bob: "Oh, no – oh, god, it's still happening! I'm gonna throw up! Ahhhhhh!"
- "Damnit, I turned up your mike! Why did I turn it up?!"
- "I want the thrill of killing people, not the thrill of surviving."
- "! ...What was that?! What the hell was that?! What did you just throw at me?! ...[I] wasn't ready for that! Jeezus! Calm down!"
- "That guy was, like, in full body armor! How'd they kill him?"
- "Well! Glad you're being so polite about this. You're very civil—oh my god! I didn't blo[ck]… I didn't mean to look down! Ugh! They're naked! They are sooo naked! Oh my god!"
- Mark: [immediatelly after nearly escaping death to SCP-106] "SHOVE A HYPO IN MY-MY EYES, SHOVE IT IN MY BALLS, I DON'T CARE, SHOVE IT IN ME SOMEHOW."
- Mark: "I regret suggesting to shove a hypo needle into my testicles, I feel like all the takeaways from my many videos."
- Mark: "That will be one that people remember for no apparent reason, it's not my fault that in a panic I think illogically, it's not my fault."
- Mark: "I cannot be held accountable for the things I say, when I am spoopied. Understand? Good. Were all in agreement."
- Mark: "That we will collectively forget, now that we got that out of the way, let me shove another bandage in my testicles."
- On a live stream on January 22, 2017, Mark stated his favorite color is red, instead of it originally being green.
- As of 2017, Mark is an aspiring musician and singer.
- Mark, as shown in his pole dancing video with siennaspaldingtv, can turn his feet nearly 180 degrees.
- In one of his videos, Mark said that some of his videos can be found on Pornhub, with a title which describes him as a sexy interracial man.
- Mark has had several memes based around him, one of the most popular was the E meme. The E meme refers to an image of the face of Mark photoshopped onto the head of Lord Farquaad from Shrek with the letter "E" overlaying the image. The meme has had several other variations and templates such as M and C and represents the absurdity of modern memes.

- Mark has said that he has worked as a bartender and a carpenter.
- He loves Pentatonix and watches them frequently according to a video he made during his Your Welcome tour.
- Mark has automatonophobia, specifically towards mannequins. He hates them with a passion and often times when he encounters one in a game he usually responds with cutting himself off and going silent, then speaking very negatively towards the mannequin, usually threatening it if it moves. He also shows distaste for animatronics in Five Nights at Freddy's because of their mannequin-esque traits. Coupled with the fact that he knows that they move doesn't help very much.
- Despite his various alcohol-related videos such as Drunk Minecraft or Drunk GTA, he claims he is very sensitive to alcohol due to a gene common among people of Asian ancestry and does not generally drink to excess. When doing videos such as this, he takes medication to avoid the reaction.
- This led to him having a mini-stroke caused by his heart not being able to pump blood to his brain properly after drinking alcohol while visiting his family in Cincinnati. In the hospital he was taken, he was told that his heart was fine, but he couldn't drink any more alcohol, a fact that Mark is fine with. This, however, means that Drunk Minecraft is officially over. This was explained in Reading Your Comments #4.
- He is a big fan of "Whose Line Is It Anyway?".
- In his vlog, "Moving to LA!!", he said he had plans to move to LA in a few months so he will be able to be closer to "the heart of YouTube" and be able to collaborate with fellow YouTubers more often.
- He is addicted to Cookie Clicker, and in his vlog "Moving to LA!!," he said he has reset twice. By contrast, he didn't play Flappy Bird, since he knew he was going to get addicted to the app. The only other version of Flappy Bird he has played is FlapBound, an EarthBound-styled game.
- For whatever reason, no matter how many times he tries, Mark simply couldn't beat the game Vanish. When he did finally beat it, he had made possibly one the most excited/happy reactions on the Internet to beating a game.
- Some of Mark's diction includes:
- room (pronounced as ruhm)
- coupon (pronounced as koo-pin)
- human (pronounced as hoo-man)
- Bowser (pronounced as Boe-ser)
- Mark has been in some of Bart Baker's parodies like his Lips are Moving PARODY, when appears at the end when Meghan delivers the presents, and Wiggle PARODY, in which he is one of the Wiggles trying to stop Jason's song.
- Mark has ADHD, as often stated in live streams.
- Mark was ranked third in WatchMojo's Top Ten Let's play YouTube Channels.
- On several occasions, he has stated that his favorite game is Earthbound. Despite this, he has never done a let's play of the game.
- Mark apparently almost had Doom as a surname.
- In Part 1 of Dream Daddy: A Dad Dating Simulator, Mark implies that his favorite musical artist is Ed Sheeran.
- Mark had a love for Cheese-Its, as stated in early live streams.
- A picture of Mark with a box of Cheese-Its on his head was featured on the Cheese-Its Facebook page.
- In a Prop Hunt video, Mark said he got sick of Cheese-Its after they sent him 10 boxes of Cheese-Its.
- In later live streams, Mark has said that his favorite snack is Takis.
- How Mark eats the Takis is he sucks the powder off the chip and then spits the chip out. He has desperately tried to recreate the Takis powder, his favorite part, but has had no luck.
- After his first channel was shut down in 2012, a late-night conversation on a balcony with Wade convinced him to make a new channel.
- Mark said in a Reading Your Comments video that his first subscriber was a friend named Michelle.
- Mark's favorite things to watch on YouTube are YouTube Poops and MLG Compilation Parodies.
- His favorite YouTube Poop is a Dragonball Z edit from the early days of YTP.
- Mark is a big fan of the dystopian Sci-Fi universe Warhammer 40k. This is confirmed from the fact that he has partook in a couple of podcasts on channels that mainly focus on producing lore videos concerning 40k where he clearly expressed his love and fascination of it.
- He also dedicates a lot of his free time on reading 40k books/novels, especially when traveling which he often does. In total he has confirmed to have read over 50 novels, a feat which not even some loremasters (admittedly self-proclaimed) could hope to match.
- Mark was born at 5:36 A.M. on June 28, 1989.
- Mark reached 24 million subscribers on his 30th birthday.
- He is currently dating Amy Nelson, known online as Peebles.
- Mark once broke a man's rib with one punch.
- On September 3, 2020 Markiplier received his first ever channel strike for Violent and Graphic content after in Try Not to Laugh #2, showed a staged video of a Russian man being mock-jumped by Spongebob, Scrat from Ice Age, Mickey Mouse and a purple bunny. This was in response to a tweet Mark posted where he demanded he be given a strike for showing the video in question as it had been removed for being deemed Violent and Graphic which in turn was fueled by Cr1tikal's AnswerUsYouTube hashtag.
- Mark has two dogs named Chica and Henry.
- For the longest time, People have speculated that Mark named Chica after the animatronic from Five Nights At Freddy's. However, Mark actually named Chica after he uses the name as a placeholder but kept the name after seeing how well she responded to it.
- Chica was originally named Sephora by her previous caretakers at the shelter, Mark decided to rename his dog to something more appropriate, as he felt that a brand name didn't suit her. He was advised to give her a name that ended in the same vowel as her last one.
- For the longest time, People have speculated that Mark named Chica after the animatronic from Five Nights At Freddy's. However, Mark actually named Chica after he uses the name as a placeholder but kept the name after seeing how well she responded to it.
- Mark has Thalassophobia, the fear of the ocean.
- There is a running joke in the fandom that Mark should acquire a sponsorship from Del Monte Foods.
Mark's first channel was known as "Markiplier". It was his original gaming channel. After playing several other game series, including Penumbra and Dead Space, YouTube banned Fischbach's AdSense account. Though he appealed to YouTube as a last effort, the appeal was ultimately lost. Because of this, a new and current channel was created on May 26, 2012, and dubbed MarkiplierGAME. On January 12, 2016, his channel was hacked by a Twitter account called "OurMine." OurMine posted a video on Mark's channel with the OurMine twitter logo and profile pic that played music. The video was soon deleted by YouTube during the middle of the day.
Mark has accumulated more than 14 billion total video views and 27 million subscribers. He makes a milestone video every time he hits a 1,000,000 milestone to show his fans his gratitude and often includes news about upcoming projects. He is often considered to be the "most caring YouTuber" due to his heartfelt appreciation to his viewers and his tendency to show his emotion on camera.
He is primarily known for his videos pertaining to Slender, SCP: Containment Breach, Drunk Minecraft, Cry Of Fear, Amnesia Custom Stories, Five Nights at Freddy's, and Happy Wheels Highlights. His online handle (Markiplier) is a combination of his first name, Mark, and the word 'Multiplier'.
He currently works with a few people, Tyler, his longtime best friend since 4th grade, who mostly helps Mark with upcoming projects and events. Ethan, a brown (previously cyan) haired guy who runs the channel CrankGameplays and is most known for helping Mark edit videos Mark creates. Kathryn, Mark's editor and good friend, who also is a good friend of Amy. Amy, Mark's girlfriend, mostly helps Mark plan events. (Read more about Amy in the next paragraph) All 4 have been shown in recent videos.
Mark is currently in a relationship with Amy Nelson, who is a graphic designer known on Twitter as iceddarkroast, and who has a new website coming up. They prefer to keep their relationship private, according to tweets from Amy. More recently, Amy has been showing up in Mark's videos and live streams.
MarkiplierTWITCH is an inactive channel. It holds Mark's Twitch live streams in case a fan has missed out on a stream when Mark was on Twitch. It has been inactive since mid-2012.
He is known to collaborate and play games with several other YouTubers. In particular, he collaborates and is friends with PewDiePie, Jacksepticeye, CinnamonToastKen, muyskerm and LordMinion777, amongst many others.
In November 2018, he supported PewDiePie on his live stream called "I Won't Literally Shut Up Until You Subscribe to PewDiePie" pushing the subgap to 70k away from T-Series along with Jacksepticeye.
In November 2019, he teamed up with Ethan Nestor, better known by his youtube name of CrankGameplays and created a channel called Unus Annus, which translates to "One Year" in English, with the premise that the channel would be deleted after 365 days (one year) and none of the videos would be reuploaded on either Mark or Ethan's YouTube channels.
Cry Of Fear
One of Mark's earliest, and most popular playthroughs was Cry of Fear. This playthrough was one of the earliest horror game videos to feature Mark using a face cam. Originally a mod for the first Half-Life game, Cry of Fear is now its own standalone game. Mark is a big fan of Half-Life and kept up with all the mods for the first Half-Life before his YouTube days. He was very impressed with the quality of the mod, and the amount of work that had been put into creating original content for the mod. Although stumbling through the first couple of videos, he quickly adapted to the game and everything it threw at him. Mark's playthrough can be found here.
An early playlist and one of his most popular ones are "Happy Wheels Highlights". As of July 2019, Mark has uploaded 97 episodes of Happy Wheels Highlights. It's a montage of Happy Wheels player-made mini-games, that are completely or somewhat different from one another. It's notable that Mark often skips the most played levels. The most common ones that he finds are Glass Breaks, Bottle Runs, Spike Falls and Ball Throws. He also likes to play popular "Markiplier-themed" mini-games. The playlist can be found here.
A few of Mark's most popular videos are those of his Slenderman playthroughs. He has mastered many of the Slender games, including Prison, Claustrophobia, Hospice, 7th Street, Mansion, and more. After trying a few times, he dedicated a few of his videos to a serious playthrough of Slender: Haunt, which he eventually mastered as well. He has yet to complete the original Slender: The 8 Pages, Slender: The Arrival, Carnival, or Christmas Special. Mark has said that the Christmas Special (which replaces Slenderman with a jolly Santa Claus, the grim music with Christmas music, buildings with gift boxes, and static with "Ho ho ho!") is truly horrifying in its own way, while also apparently a destroyer of childhoods.
He seems to have grown quite fond of Slenderman, as seen in his playthrough of the indie game called Evil, where a gargantuan version of Slenderman was seen. With such appearances, he took to calling Slenderman "Slendy.", which is commonly known as Slenderman's nickname.
As of late, Mark has stated that he feels like Slender has run its course, but despite that, he does play new Slender games when they come out.
Indie Horror Games
Mark has played many indie horror games, dedicating multiple playlists to them. He takes suggestions from his subscribers, as well as finding them himself. Sometimes, Yamimash or other YouTubers recommend games to him, or he plays games that other YouTubers played that he finds intriguing.
Though he has received requests to play games built on RPGMaker, such as Ib or Mad Father, he has stated in a video before that he feels that such games are silly, and aren't really his style. However, due to very good criticism about the RPG game The Witch's House, Mark decided to "give it a try". After the gameplay, Mark admitted he had a wrong idea about RPG games and that they too can be scary. Since The Witch's House, Mark has played Paranoiac, Mad Father, Ib, and the Crooked Man, and the classic version of Corpse Party and has asked his viewers to suggest more games to play. Most of his fans have suggested he plays the newer version of Corpse Party or Misao, both of which he said he will be playing as soon as he finds time for it.
Mark had originally confused the classic Corpse Party with the newer version, stating at the end of the playthrough that he was confused and said that he knew Cryaotic's playthrough was much longer than his (it was roughly 30 parts, about half an hour or longer each). When he realized his mistake, he promised to do the newer version of Corpse Party as soon as he finds the time, as the newer Corpse Party is a very lengthy game.
The playlist can be found here.
After Mark plays the games he usually gives a short critique about the game before ending the video. While playing "Evil," an Indie Horror Game, Mark was not amused. He couldn't find the objective of the game, and while he liked a few mechanics of the game, he did not think that the slow-paced and clumsy controls kept the atmosphere going. Whatever atmosphere the game had grown in the first moments of the experience was completely obliterated soon after. A balloon version of Slenderman left Mark confounded, also stating that one couldn't just put scary stuff in a game to make it actually scary.
Some indie games Mark has played include, but are not limited to: Hide, Stalked, One Late Night, Evil, Hyde, Slendytubbies, Inside, The Corridor, Maze, Hylophobia, The Rake: Return to Asylum, The House, The House 2, Where Am I, Bunny Man: Lost Souls, Labyrinth, Labyrinth (as in Greek Mythology), The Rake: Hostel, Which, 1916, Imscared, Resolute Dark, Forest, Lasting, Exmortis, Mental Hospital, Illusion, Pesadelo, Inculcation, Sonic.exe, Dark Ocean, Fibrillation, Dream of the Bloodmoon, Five Nights at Freddy's, and The Grudge.
Amnesia: The Dark Descent
Often citing Amnesia as a truly terrifying game, Mark has dedicated many of his videos to the playthrough of both Amnesia: The Dark Descent, and custom stories made for the game.
So far, his favorite custom stories seem to be: The Things in the Night, The Great Work, and the upcoming A Machine for Pigs. Here is a list of his Custom Story playthroughs:
- La Caza
- Followed By Death
- The Machine
- Lost The Light
- Tenebris Lake
- The Attic
- Gary Dark Secrets
- The Things In The Night
- Black Forest Castle
- Through The Portal
- Emma's Story
- Killings In Altstadt
- White Night
- The Great Work
- Fekete Keres
- Fear Amnesia
- When Life No Longer Exists
- The Grey Eagle
Amnesia: A Machine For Pigs
Mark began his A Machine For Pigs playthrough on the same day that it was released, and produced 10 episodes of it. Although very excited about the game, he felt it was lacking in the fear factor that made The Dark Descent such a good horror game. That being said, he still appreciated it for what it is, despite the disappointment in his exceptions for the game.
SCP Containment Breach
Despite saying he won't play this game again, Mark continues to do so. SCP involves different monsters starting with a root SCP followed by some number (i.e. SCP-001). SCP-173 (or 'Billy") is the most common one which instantly kills you when your character blinks. He has also played through different mods of the game, including Slender Mod and My Little Pony. He also played a fan-made mod of the game that changed all monsters' textures, as well as many other textures and sounds, to either be related to him or his channel or to be Mark himself. After the release of version 0.7.1, Mark started doing videos on SCP Containment Breach again (sometimes "cheating" his way through because the game can be a pain in his butt). He restated that SCP Containment Breach has given him some of the biggest scares. After another halt, Mark came back again with the release of version 0.8.

―from Episode 2
Mark's first Drunk Minecraft video was uploaded to his channel on August 8, 2012, and very rapidly became a fan favorite. It mainly features him with his 2 friends muyskerm (Bob) & LordMinion777 (Wade) playing Minecraft while intoxicated. The first season consisted of 32 episodes and ran until early December. After many requests, Mark uploaded the 1st of the 2nd season of Drunk Minecraft on March 21, 2013, and in the 2nd season, Mark, Bob & Wade have objectives to complete competitively to become the winner of the episode, the true winner was determined by their "Eye in the Sky", Zombiemold, also known as Zombie. Even though it has not been announced how long the 2nd season would run for, Mark revealed in the Q&A session that Drunk Minecraft would be interrupted, since Bob moved away to finish Law School. The series returned on October 27, with the episode "DON'T KILL THE CHICKEN." Upon the return, the previous style of Season 2 faded, with a more open theme, that is, without as many contests.
A spin-off series entitled "Drunk Prop Hunt" also appeared. This has taken place on both the Garry's Mod game and Minecraft maps most likely built by Zombiemold.
The series came to an abrupt end in Episode 69 because of health reasons as Mark could no longer drink alcohol.
Five Nights at Freddy's
Mark is extremely popular for his Five Nights at Freddy's playthroughs, his first video of Five Nights at Freddy's was posted shortly after the game was released. The game sparked some interest in him, also making him say that it was the 'scariest game in years' and making him do a full playthrough of it. He was even one of the first people to have recorded footage of beating 4/20 mode. After playing FNaF, Mark dubbed himself the king of Five Nights at Freddy's, a title still recognized to this day.
Five Nights at Freddy's 2
Mark started his playthrough of the second game a few days after it was released, saying that it was the 'scariest game ever made' and had more difficulty beating it then the last game due to FNaF 2's high difficulty. Once again he was the second person to complete the hardest mode, dubbed 10/20 mode, unfortunately, Mark did not do the other custom night challenges.
Five Nights at Freddy's 3
Mark started his playthrough the same day the game was released and was confused as to why there was no animatronic on the first night. Once he reached night 2, Mark stumbled through the game for a few tries, but eventually learned how to play and zipped through the game easily. Once he beat night five, he was confused as to why there were multiple endings.
He then completed nightmare mode in 2 tries in the next episode. In his last episode of the game, Mark got the good ending and stated that even though the series had ended, it was a great game and stated that many people who hated horror games played the game out of curiosity. He said that he thinks there won't be another game in the series, but that he, along with all the other fans of the game, was trying to find out what happened in FredBear's Family Diner, and the origins of Shadow Bonnie and Golden Freddy.
Five Nights at Freddy's 4
Mark started his run on the game the day it was released to the public. He had struggled with the breathing mechanic when the animatronics were close to the door and died four times on the first night figuring it out. After getting through the breathing mechanic issues, he eventually zipped to the fifth night, where he started having struggles once again on how to counter Nightmare Fredbear.
After passing the fifth night, he watched a cutscene and was shocked with horror after seeing what was presumably the Bite of 87'. Confused with the story of FNaF and how everything fits in, he ignores it and continued into the sixth night, which he beat in two tries, only dying once to Nightmare Fredbear, still being very confused by the plot in the process.
Playing Nightmare mode, he died three times and made it through. Mark also played 20/20/20/20 mode on the game and died 22 times, but pulled through on the 4th of August 2015, and becoming the first person to beat it.
Co-Op Video Games
Mark has played collaboration horror games a few times. He first did a collaboration with another popular YouTube Horror Let's Player, Yamimash. After this, he played multiple Garry's Mod custom horror maps and an indie game called Slendytubbies with Yamimash, and played a non-horror game called Castle Crashers with Yamimash, TheRPGMinx, and CinnamonToastKen.
He has played a game called Primal Fear, which he is considering playing co-op with other YouTubers. However, he has let his subscribers decide.
He also played Trouble in Terrorist Town, Murder and Prop Hunt, with YouTubers such as TheRPGMinx, Ohmwrecker, PewDiePie, Seananners, CaptainSparklez, Yamimash, EatMyDiction1, Jacksepticeye, GassyMexican, and Bob (muyskerm) & Wade (LordMinion777) from Drunk Minecraft.
He has done another set of videos with CaptainSparklez of Gentleman's Dispute and the sequel Max Gentleman. They both have different perspectives on their channel, but Markiplier's perspective includes the bloopers.
Mark has done numerous live-streams on Twitch. He has also done a few major charity live-streams, one of them being the $8,000 Cancer Research Charity Donation and an almost $7,000 donation to an organ charity. In one of his other live streams, held on May 18, 2013, Mark and his community were able to raise over $20,000 for the "American Cancer Society" charity in under 9 hours. During a live stream in July 2014, Mark and his fans raised over $81,000 for Best Friends Animal Society over the course of 12 hours. In total, Mark, with the continued support of his loyal subscribers, has raised $628,670.14 since the last charity live stream.
His streams are always held on his twitch channel, but on his May live stream for 2015, he voiced his interest in switching over to YouTube's streaming service once they fix all the bugs in the system. He said that he thought it was better to have his streams on the same website, to make it more convenient and more connected to his channel. Mark then went through with it, doing his first YouTube live stream in September of 2015. However, Mark switched back to Twitch for his June 2017 charity live stream to take advantage of Twitch-enabled games and interact more with his fans.
Mark showcases some of the fan-animated videos on his channel and in return, is able to pay the artist for their work. The YouTube animator LixianTV is of special note, being the first animator to be featured and also as the creator of a large number of the animations featured on Mark's channel. Lixian is currently working as Mark's editor.
Several notable animations on his channel involve the game Yandere Simulator.
Another animator that animates for Mark is a YouTuber that goes by the name GrittySugar. She has made a minimum amount of animations for Mark.
Mark's involvement in music has been intermittent throughout his life. He made one of his older Outro music tracks. This was known as "Funky Outro", and it was homemade by Mark himself. He has also sung in several videos such as "How To Beat A Monkey At Chess: THE MUSICAL", "FNAF: The Musical Feat. Markiplier (Night 1)", and "Five Nights at Freddy's: The Musical – Night 2". He also came back for Nights 4 and 5 of the Five Nights at Freddy's musical series.
Mark played the trumpet while attending Milford High School and had a solo in their 2006 marching show, which made it to the semifinals of the 2006 Bands of America Grand Nationals.<ref>https://youtu.be/5-BzXTDytNs
