"Sample [FILE-08] - Haltmann's Archives" is a lore video and the eighth "file" in Haltmann's Archives. It documents the being known as SiIvaGunner, who reappeared suddenly at the start of Season 3.

Summary[edit | edit source]

The video is formatted like all Haltmann's Archives videos starting with "FILE-02". It opens with this message:

[Haltmann's Archives]



The text begins by stating that a "sample analysis" has been successful. The sample analysis appears to be about SiIvaGunner, the living statue that runs a YouTube channel. As detailed in The FILE-01 and FILE-02, the statue that would become SiIvaGunner was made of a meteorite of unknown origin. The FILE then goes on to list the composition of the statue and its abilities, including its ability to create Figments. One of the notes on the character is his ability to create "Core"-like entities in the form of albums.

The final sentence in the FILE is an ominous one, perhaps hinting at some nefarious reason behind SiIvaGunner's return:

Context[edit | edit source]

The SiIvaGunner character has been asleep ever since Title Theme & Ending - 7 GRAND DAD, where he uploaded his magnum opus and took a well-deserved rest. In SiIvaGunner's absence, several other channel hosts, including The Voice Inside Your Head, Wood Man, Inspector Gadget, and President Haltmann, have all taken over the channel and uploaded their own rips.

On January 1, 2018, with the upload of the video "...of 2017", the third season of the SiIvaGunner channel began. With the start of Season 3 came the return of SiIvaGunner, who suddenly appeared to be back to his pre-SilvaGunner: Rebooted self. However, up until the release of "Project AIRTH [FILE-09]", many of SiIvaGunner's rips were anomalous, and his profile picture and banner were glitched several times. The Season 3 finale revealed that this "SiIvaGunner" was actually an A.I..

In a later file, "Albums", it explains that the Cores are superweapons developed by various governments for protection purposes. In reality, "Cores" are likely a homage to a naming convention in collaborative mashup albums pre-dating GiIvaSunner, where "core" is used as a suffix to the subject of the album. In this file, it explains how similar SiIvaGunner is to the Cores, which is true of the albums as well.
