Markiplier (Born Mark Edward Fischbach on June 28,1989 ) is a YouTuber with a rapidly growing loyal fanbase, referred to by different names, most notably as the "Markiplites" (though in one livestream, he comments that he grew fond of the name "Markiplier's Heroes"). As noted in his Farewell Livestream on February 22, 2014, he is currently 5'10". Mark is the younger brother of webcomic author & artist Thomas Jason Fischbach (known for TwoKinds).
Mark is known for his various playthroughs (Let's Plays) of games in the horror genre, such as Amnesia: The Dark Descent, but he mainly focuses on indie horror games, for the purposes of giving them more attention. He is also known for his trademark "Warfstache " composed of a pink mustache, hisamazing hair style , his incredible muscles and body , and his deep voice, all forming together The Perfect Awesome . He is also known to have played games outside of horror, such as Minecraft (notably seen in his long-running series "Drunk Minecraft", in which he collaborates with his good friends Bob Muyskerm (muyskerm) and Wade (LordMinion777) and has released several Sketch comedy videos, commonly collaborating with Cyndago . He currently has over 2,000,000 subscribers (as of April 6, 2014 between 10:16 PM - 11:59 AM) and his channel continues to grow as one of the fastest growing channels on YouTube. He used to reside in Cincinnati but moved to LA on March 4, 2014.

Mark does a variety of livestreams. Some are to do playthroughs of fans. Others are to meet up with fans in certain Multiplayer games, and most notable ones are his charity and fundraiser livestreams where he plays games that are sometimes requested to raise money for many charities and fundraisers such as Childs Play, Cancer Research, Hospitals, etc. His livestreams can be found on his Twitch channel.
Markiplier has played collaboration horror games a few times. He first did a collaboration with another popular Youtube Let's Play-er, Yamimash . After this, he continued and played multiple Garry's Mod custom horror maps and and other Indie Gameswith Yamimash , and played a non-horror game called Castle Crashers with 3 other youtubers therpgminx , cinnamontoastken , and yamimash . He also plays other Garry's Mods which are called Trouble in Terrorist Town, Prop Hunt, Murder and Gmod Tower with his friends Bob and Wade , or therpgminx , cinnamontoastken , yamimash , ohm , captainsparklez , pewdiepie and other youtubers.
Markiplier plays with a style contrasting that of many other Let's Players on YouTube - while some, such as ChaoticMonki (Cry), 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. He commonly takes on an exaggerated facade of courage and bravado when clear of danger, proclaiming his superhuman strength, bravery, and incredible good looks (most prominently seen in his earlier playthroughs). 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 (no pun intended) screams and fleeing towards the nearest available hiding place. Upon the departing of/escaping from the threat, his smooth attitude returns and so do his jeers of derison towards the game's antagonist.
However, on certain games (most notably during 'rage' games such as Cat Mario or Give Up, and even unintentionally 'rage'-worthy games such as Surgeon Simulator 2013) or during any nonsensical puzzle, he goes into fits of rage, usually due to the difficulty of the solution. He is often very fired up while playing such games, and usually takes a while afterwards to calm down.
Alongside his suave and sonorous voice, Mark has a well-trained eye for quality in games, praising creative or innovative features, especially physics.
After playing a game, he will often pause for a minute before ending the video to talk about the quality of the game, what the developers did and didn't do well, as well as giving them advice as to how to make the game better.
"Most Caring Youtuber"Edit
From time to time, Mark is referred by some of his fans as exceptionally caring and a lovable person, a reason that has been one of the main reasons his channel is so rapidly growing. Special V-logs in which Mark talks directly with his fanbase are not rare, but on 10/10/2013, after finishing the fan-made game "Ripest of Fears" Mark openly admitted that he has lost some of this contact with his fanbase while doing his best to be a good entertainer and accused himself of giving too much importance to things that really didn't matter, putting his subscribers counting ahead of himself.
One can see that Mark truly care for his fans as, closing to the end of the video, he inadvertently gave signs of been crying during his speech and excused himself of making fun of some aspects of the game he was playing, as he admitted that some effort was put into it and that was what really mattered and thanked once more his loyal fans and promised to change back to the way he was, trying harder to restablish some of this contact he lost by doing more special V-logs and answering more frequently to people.
