Mark Edward Fischbach, better known as markiplier, is an American YouTuber who specializes in Let's Play game-play commentary videos and other gaming-related content. He's the host of the Distractible podcast alongside fellow YouTubers Jacksepticeye and Muyskerm, and previously co-hosted the now-defunct Unus Annus channel. He's also the younger brother of web comic author and artist Tom Fischbach, better known as TwoKinds.

The internet has no shortage of questions about markiplier, including why he has a pink mustache, why he can't drink alcohol, and who drew his YouTube icon. Fortunately for fans, Markiplier has been very open about his personal life, sharing details that many were surprised by.

Despite being an extremely positive person, Markiplier has had to deal with some serious issues as well. In a video titled 'Markiplier Reacts To Mean Comments', the internet saw him shed tears over some of the cruel things that have been said to him.

In another video, he was genuinely distraught after watching Torres die in The Evil Within 2 and even more horrified when Ashley's head gets torn off by a Wendigo in Until Dawn.

In addition to those sad moments, Fischbach has had a few health problems as well. In a video, he revealed that he has had stomach issues and had to get surgery for them in 2015. He also shared with his fans that he was diagnosed with Asian Flush, something that most of the online community wasn't aware of.
