True/Old Anonymous (or Anonymous or Anon) refers to a personification of anonymous users on 4chan as a faceless green man in a suit.

Prior to V for Vendetta’s movie that was released 17 March 2006, Anonymous’ mascot was somewhat faceless. Exactly the thing Anonymous wanted to be portrayed as.
It was a green faced male, no eyes or mouth and sometimes a nose, Wearing a black suit with a red tie he would have “No Picture Available” printed on his face.


As a personification, Anonymous was created on 4chan sometime before 2006. An early appearance of Anonymous is in the flash movie Sageman [1], where Anonymous is shown fighting Sage man. Another flash movie also includes Anonymous, and was uploaded to Newgrounds on January 21 2006 [2].

The appearance of Anonymous is believed to have been inspired by The Son of Man, a painting by René Magritte.
The green color of Anonymous’ skin may have been based off the green apple covering most of the man’s face. [citation needed]

Tue Anon is commonly seen in ComicCon and other conventions, as to not involve police. Guy Fawkes is used to promote their cause and freak out newfags. True Anon is deefinitly a meme just as Guy Fawkes is….they are the two sides of anonymous…tue anon represents the troll side…Guy Fawkes the hackist side. It is a meme simple as that. +1 confirm
