This article's subject matter is parodical and non-canon in nature (but distinct from hoax and serious fanon material)
This material is generally fan-created, but occasionally from official or commercial sources.
ThEmIsFiTiShErE (viz. The Misfit is Here) is the online alias of a devout LOST fan, known for his bizarre theories and commentary concerning the show. TheMisfit is in actuality a parody of hardcore LOST fans . He claims his name is Mike Rotch (Or 'My Crotch'), lives in Scotland, and is currently in a hospital (where he watches LOST with his 'friend' Tony) because of an 'incident' 5 years ago which caused problems with his "brian". He currently operates a blog for his findings where he posts theories on a regular basis. He is famous for a listing of continuity errors (e.g. Jack Shephard spelled wrong on his Doctor's Certificate.) His true identity remains unknown. He did not post during the latter parts of season 6, but he returned in 2011, promising updates about a fictitious season 7.
The Misfit’s posts feature rhetoric in which he fully capitalizes random words in his sentences, to promote his satire of a troll-like personality. He also makes intentional errors in his text, such as misspelling the names of characters.
The Misfit's style of "analysis" usually involves taking a picture somehow related to lost and interpreting it in a manner which ignores "common sense." For example he may take photos of Lost stars in other roles and interpret them as indicating an upcoming storyline for the character. He also will frequently take frames from episodes and interpret them as though they were meant to be seen individually, for example accusing characters or actors of falling asleep based on a frame in which their eyes are closed. One of Misfit's genuine contributions to the arena of Lost fandom is an incredible ability to discover and catalog production errors within the show, most notably being when crew or equipment is visible. This information is usually presented on the web site as being evidence for some bizarre theory. For example, The Misfit claimed that Desmond was not alone when he killed Kelvin, because the hand of a crew member was visible behind a rock. Despite the satirical nature of presentation, the ability to discover so many errors does show a genuine eye for detail and an obsessive interest in the show.
He claims to be hospitalized for a problem with his "brian". His outrageous theories, simplistic logic, and childlike overconfidence, are often mistaken by readers as ignorance, stubbornness, and/or arrogance. This is indicated by the many corrections and insults in each article's comments thread. His blog has now passed 3 million hits.
The Tail Section
As of July 2006, the Misfit is now a writer at the fansite The Tail Section. Tailsection operator DocArzt claims in his front page news that due to concerns he received from his community about adding the Misfit, he wished to reveal to his readers that:
"It is my great pleasure to inform all the sour-pusses of the world that ThEmIsFiTiShErE is actually a satire. A satire of over zealous LOST fans freeze-framing and scouring the internet for answers. A satire of the LOST fans who come up with the craziest theories you could possibly think of (remember how they were going to find a floating eye in the Hatch?) and defend them incredulously.
Analysis of his "spoilers"
- Locke and Eko see a vision of YEMI on the Island!!
- Libby finally DIES
- The "?" is a pearl looking building that WE assume is the main control centre for the hatches
- Partial Hit. The Pearl is not the main control centre for the hatches
- They find another Dharma tape in HERE!!
- Apparently it says something like you deserve a vacation for hitting the button every 108 minutes!!
- THREE MINUTES is the amount of TIME Michael was allowed with WOLT!!
- Hit, but it had been said somewhere else.
- Walt is older than he was BEFORE!!
- Miss within the context of the show, but correct in reality as he has aged faster than the timeline of the show allows, so really this is false. Even if right, not a big deal. Everybody is older then he was BEFORE.
- THE Survivors spot the sailboat!!The shocked LOOK you see in the PROMO!!
- The Others ARE part of a resistance on the Island!!

- Miss - The Door was not opened. As revealed later in the finale, there is nothing behind the door.
- Fake Henry and Mr. Friendly are both Widmore family MEMBERS!!
- Miss - Nothing was said about this

- Hit, but seen from preview.
- The rest of CIVILIZATION has been destroyed!!
- Miss. Desmond said there was nothing out there, but at the end of the episode we see a listening station which is not on the Island and Penelope Widmore answering the phone call from this listening station.
- Sayid IS shot in the chest!!
- Michael SHOOTS the guards at the new bunker DOOR

The BLOW us away MOMENT is!!
"This is quite good actually. We have a flashback or so we think to Penny watching the news just after the phone call she received from the Arctic monitoring station. It shows that Flight 815 is still "missing" one week after its disappearance and the previous couple of months have actually taken place in a week. The time on the Island runs a lot quicker than the outside world. It's a real wtf moment."
Miss. We know the Others know the Red Sox won the World Series one MONTH after the crash (October 27).

- Sun will dream into the future

Season 3 photos
These are fake photos Misfit has claimed to be from future episodes of Lost. The first two are from season 3, while the last one is supposedly from Season 4, however it was later found to actually be taken from someone's DeviantArt site and the ABC logo added on afterwards.
