  • Thinner or Paint Thinner is green paint which does not restore an object. If anything is thinned, the thing will be erased.
  • The Thinner is an item from Silent Hill 2. It is found in an elevator in the basement of the Lakeview Hotel. The thinner can be used to reveal a four-letter code on a photograph, scribbled out by a black marker, that serves as the solution to opening a briefcase in Room 202. The briefcase contains a music box.
  • Thinner is green and can be used as a solvent to dissolve and destroy foes, buildings and obstacles in Wasteland, whether they're good or bad. Thinner is the one of the tools Mickey can use on his quest to become an epic hero. When using Thinner on other characters, they will get absorbed to the ground. That is, until Mickey uses paint on those characters again.
  • Thinner is a 1984 novel by Stephen King, published under his Richard Bachman pseudonym. Obese lawyer Billy Halleck, charged with vehicular manslaughter after killing an old Gypsy woman, is acquitted thanks to his connection with the judge. As he leaves the courthouse, the 106-year-old father of the woman places a curse on him that causes him to rapidly lose weight. After learning that the Gypsy placed a curse on the judge (making him grow hideous scales on his face) and his other friend, a cop that lied on the stand to aid him (leaving his face pockmarked with huge zits), Halleck enlists the help of a former client and mob boss to terrorize the Gypsy to lift his curse.
  • Thinner was a Seabright synthpop band (1992 - 1994) started by James Wilcox and Ryan Coseboom. Thinner released two self produced albums between 1992 and 1994. The first album entitled Ether Reality was reviewed in the same issue of BAM Magazine as 4aD's Red House Painters. Though not a stunning review, it was a decent write-up and didn't deter the band from moving onto the much better Colourblind album a year later. In May 1992 they played their only public appearance at San Francisco State's Cantina. In 1994, Ryan began playing for Anomie and later for his current band Halou.
  • The story follows Billy Halleck, an obese, upper-class lawyer living in Connecticut. One night, while simultaneously driving home and receiving a hand job from his wife Heidi, he accidentally runs over an old woman from a band of traveling gypsies. He is brought to trial, but is acquitted thanks to his high connections, who fake evidence. His friend, the judge, declares him not guilty. While Billy leaves the courthouse, an old gypsy man, who turns out to be Taduz Lemke, the gypsy woman's father, brushes his hand on Billy's cheek and whispers "thinner."

  • The story follows Billy Halleck, an obese, upper-class lawyer living in Connecticut. One night, while simultaneously driving home and receiving a hand job from his wife Heidi, he accidentally runs over an old woman from a band of traveling gypsies. He is brought to trial, but is acquitted thanks to his high connections, who fake evidence. His friend, the judge, declares him not guilty. While Billy leaves the courthouse, an old gypsy man, who turns out to be Taduz Lemke, the gypsy woman's father, brushes his hand on Billy's cheek and whispers "thinner." While on vacation with Heidi, Billy discovers that he is beginning to lose weight, although he has not changed his diet in any way. As the days progress, Billy's weight loss becomes more rapid. Although he is first pleased by this, he soon becomes frightened by the speed and suddenness of the weight loss. He becomes convinced that a gypsy curse has been placed on him when he discovers that the judge that acquitted Billy and another police officer also involved in the case committed suicide after experiencing unnatural symptoms on their bodies. The judge starts growing lizard scales and claws on his body, and the police officer gets a disturbingly horrific case of acne. Billy breaks away from his wife and daughter, who want to have him placed in a clinic, and drives upstate to find the gypsies. Lemke tells Billy that he will never take off the curse, so Billy resorts to drastic measures, where he has his friend, Richie "The Hammer" Ginelli, an underground mobster, manage to find the gypsies again, and Richie torments the gypsies until Lemke finally agrees to talk to Billy and remove the curse. The old man explains to Billy that the curse can only be transferred from person to person and not removed permanently. He slices Billy's hand and adds some of his blood to an odd-looking strawberry pie, telling Billy that whoever eats the pie next will be afflicted by the curse currently plaguing him. The old man also begs Billy to die with dignity and eat the pie himself, but Billy is determined to take it home and give it to Heidi, who he blames for the incident. Upon returning home, he leaves the pie out for Heidi to eat overnight, and goes to bed. When he wakes up in the morning, he is terrified to find that his beloved daughter, Linda, has also taken a piece of the pie. Billy cuts himself a slice of the pie so he can eventually join his wife and daughter in death.
