Blue Demon

The original Blue Man Whiteboard. Received from a user who wishes to remain anonymous.

The Blue Man, also known as The Blue Demon, or Rich People's Curse is a fan-created legend and story that began in YoWorld and dates back to the year of 2009. The story revolves around a painting, in the form of whiteboard art, many believe to be cursed, or haunted. While very little is known about its true origin, the art piece does exist.

Typically, most stories revolve around a new player in 2009 who created the board and gifted it to a wealthier player as an act of revenge, after the new YoWorlder felt that he had been mistreated by the wealthier player. It is a popular theory that only the rich can see the true phantom within the board.

As the name implies, the image on the board depicts the portrait of a blue male-like or possibly gender-less figure. It is not known if the figure is supposed to represent a real person or if it's just some made up anomaly. The background of the image consists of an unsettling pattern of blue and purple colors, while the subject appears to be in pain or despair, and sporting what appears to be a black suit and tie, or something similar.


Players who are present in the same room as the board often report odd glitches, such as red blotches around other items in the room. Some have noted, that given the positioning of the board, it appears as though its eyes follow the user's computer mouse cursor. A mysterious entity has been allegedly sighted around the board, but genuine photographs have of such occurrences have not yet surfaced, should they have occurred.

Current state

There is currently no proof regarding the alleged history behind the whiteboard. The original piece has often been subjected to price-jacking due to the infamous lore surrounding it. This legend has also been referred to as the Rich People's Curse due to the fact that it's believed that the entity that supposedly haunts the painting only shows itself to wealthier players. The painting was purchased by the YoWorld Wiki in late 2014.
