Chapter 1-10 (First Season)Edit
Under the name Marble, he first appeared in Chapter 1, he being standing in a stage top of Real Account internet world. He revealed to everyone trapped inside the internet world, which caused a lot of criticism from the users. One of Real Account user said that he was joking around and don't try to be ridiculous, this angered Marble and stretch his arm to kill that user. After showed that user and his followers were all killed, Marble revealed that everyone's life and follower numbers was quite important in this world and lost either one of them will caused people died. Marble also revealed that the games will be broadcast across the world, he also said that he have his own reason to causing this incident but he will not reveal it to everyone yet. When someone tries to run away, Marble kills them, also causing all of his followers to die.
Soon, Marble announced a mini trial named "True Follower Diagnosis", he gives everyone in the real world 3 minutes to unfollow anyone in the game. If anyone in the game's follower count goes to 0 they die. Marble says this game shows that humans socialize only for appearances and that they are shallow.
After the trial was ended, Marble informs the players that they are down to 4,684 contests from the starting 10,000, but also says that the followers the contestants now have are the ones that truly care about you. In the real world, they are mourning the dead, even though they in effect killed them. Ataru Kashiwagi begins questioning how he has run from reality all this time but vows to make it out alive. Then, Marble announced the next trial and tells the players to moves to other places.
After the players moved to the other places, Marble announced the next trial they will play is No Answer. No Answer is a quiz game the players usually plays in Real Account's social app, but in this version, Marble tells the contestants that judges will be deciding the answer. The question is how do you look: if you think you are handsome, you choose O, for normal, triangle, and for ugly X.The contestants choose by wearing a bib with the appropriate answer on their back. If the majority of the judges agree with the answer, then the contestant wins. Otherwise they lose/die.
As the players enter the game, a clone of Marble introduces himself as "Marble 4". Marble 4 pics the judges, telling them that they are exempt from the game; however, they have to answer truthfully. He puts lie detectors on them and says there will be consequences if they lie. Contestants are allowed to go to the podium whenever they are ready. As contestants get on to the stage, Ataru analyzes the game, realizing it favors those who are clearly one way or another. For those in the middle, the game is much harder. In one instance, the judges vote is a tie (two 0', two Triangles, and 1 X), so Marble 4 kills the contestant. Another contestant attempts to bribe Marble into letting him leave Real Account; however, Marble 4 informs that he forgot to alert the contestants that he told the real world they could unfollow or follow contestants at any time. This bribing contestant lost his last follower and dies.
Marble 4 teases the crowd about their appearances, then informs them that they have a celebrity among them: Ruriri Ichijou. This celebrity has never shown herself to the real world. While everyone talks about how cute she is, Marble 4 reveals that Ruriri is 28, not 21, her real name is Yuriko Ichijou, and then points her out in the crowd. Everyone notices that she is not pretty or cute, and Marble 4 comments about how much people can change their appearance and how the real world person is often different. Later after Ataru speaks up and defends Ruriri, Marble 4 then forces her to be the next contestant for No Answer. She confesses to being ugly and the judges agree, allowing her to pass the game.
Soon, Marble 4 gets irritated that not enough people are getting in line fast enough to play No Answer, so he threatens to kill all those who are stalling and not getting in line. Using Koyori Kanda's notes, Ataru begins to analyze how the judges have rated people so that they can have a better chance of guessing right. While they're analyzing, one of the contests shows his bib and begs that the judges all rate him as an X. Marble 4 seems frustrated with him; however the contestant argues that showing your bib was never against the rules. He lets it slide, and only one judge votes X. After announcing that the contestant was wrong, the lie detector on one of the judges goes off. The judge who voted X confesses to only putting X because the contestant asked her too. After scolding her for lying, Marble 4 kills all the judges and lets the contestant pass. Marble 4 chooses new judges with one of them being Koyori, making all of Ataru's guess about the judges worthless. Ataru stops the game and gives everyone a plan to surpasses the trial. After this, each contestant begins passing though. Ataru goes last and passes through with the correct answer. Marble 4 gets mad and asks how they all did it. Ataru tells Marble 4 that he cheated by using Real Account on his phone.
Marble 4 acts impressed for cheating, but then reveals that there was a way for everyone to have gone through. He explains that everyone could have just made themselves changed their appearance, like Ruriri, and make themselves look ugly. This would have given everyone an X, and everyone would have passed through safely. Marble 4 makes Ataru feel pathetic, but Koyori says that he's still a hero to her. Marble 4 comments that these bonds will cost them in the second game, then leaves.
As the players enters their second game, the original Marble shown up and announced the trial is "RT Game". RT stands for Repeat Tchat; the game utilizes one of Real Accounts content items called TChat. It can post short blog posts that can be reposted by other people so that all their followers can see it as well. In this game, the contestants can use TChat to post a single message. Each time it is RT'ed, the original poster will receive 100 yen. Everyone wonders why would they plays this type of game, Marble stated that those moneys may will be useful in the later trials.
