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]

René Magritte, The Son of Man, 1964, Restored by Shimon D. Yanowitz, 2009
