• Introduction to Rage Comics, Chapter 1
Rage Comics are the largest and most rapidly evolving form of exploitable comic on the internet. The basic fundamentals that make up a Rage Comic are (1) events taken from real-life or close to real-life scenarios, (2) crudely drawn imagery showing little or no artistic talent, and (3) usage of "Rage Faces", a rapidly growing body of faces which have the potential to express every emotion a human is capable of feeling.
These three fundamentals make Rage Comics so popular because (1) everybody loves ranting about or sharing their life experiences and knowing that others have been through similar circumstances, (2) with no need for artistic talent, everybody feels welcome to contribute, and (3) the faces are so perfectly emotive and hilarious that they can turn fairly normal stories into comedic epics.
FFFFFFF Rage Guy
Rage Guy is the grandfather of all Rage Faces, and yUUU where the movement gets its name. Rage Guy is
the absolute essence of rage channeled into a
UUUU single face. His mouth is wide open, his eyebrows
YUUU are angled downard, he can't even see straight,
UUUU and he feels too strongly about the profanity he's
UUUU- yelling to ever let it come to a close.
The earliest known use of Rage Guy, according to the admittedly unreliable source of Encyclopedia Dramatica, is the comic shown at right. Here we see an innocent everyman seated at a toilet to go about his business, when he is met with the unpleasant feeling, upon taking a particularly hefty dump, of toilet water splashing on his behind.
This unwanted suprise causes him to rage, and gives birth to the Rage Comic.
FFFFFF
FFFUU
Everything Went
Better Than Expected
Often you will find yourself in a situation that you are sure will result in a fit of rage. But sometimes, things play out just right to end up in an acceptable, if not favorable scenario.
That's when Everything Went Better Than
Expected (shortened EWBTE) comes into play.
EWBTE was first introduced when a kindly soul offered up a solution to the original rage-inducing problem. He claimed that by placing toilet paper in the toilet water before dump-taking, the splash upon impact is less severe.
While the protagonist here is expecting a rage-inducing splash, he is pleasantly surprised to have this not happen.
Sometimes the words "Everything Went
Better Than Expected" are included in the comic, but they are often left out.
Me Gusta
Me Gusta is one of the most difficult rage faces to understand. "Me Gusta" means "I Like" in
Spanish, and the Me Gusta face represents taking pleasure, usually strange pleasure, in anything from getting a whiff of a woman's perfume to wearing your mom's underclothing just for yiffs.
The origin of Me Gusta is a second solution to the same toilet-splashing issue as before. In this case, the seated protagonist receives a strange enjoyment from having cool toilet water splash up on his behind, and therefore has no need to rage. In this particular example, the words "Me
Gusta" are included, but since it is now assumed that the faces are known by the reader, the words are often omitted.
Troll Face
Troll Face is put on anybody or anything that intentionally or knowingly induces rage. When drawn on a body, it is usually depicted as having long, squiggly arms. If a Troll Face appears in a Rage Comic, but you are not entirely sure who the Troll Face is trolling, you will probably come to the realization rather shortly that you, the reader, are being trolled.
An early incarnation of Troll Face said "Problem,
Officer?" to a cop, and Troll Faces are now known to say "Problem?" quite frequently.
Troll Face is incredibly versatile, and as a result is a very common face in Rage Comics.
It is more and more frequently place on inanimate objects that the protagonist believes are conspiring against him (for example, a doorknob that won't open, or a rug that you trip over). There is a subgenre of Rage Comics entitled Troll <Subject> (usually Troll
Physics or Troll Math) in which a Troll Face presents an impossible proposition in a certain academic field with ridiculous results, usually ending with "Problem, gravity?" or
"Problem, Archimedes?" or something to that effect.
