The No. face is a rage comic character that is used to dismiss or disapprove of another person’s idea. When in a comment, it is sometimes used as a standalone reaction image in a similar context to other negative rage faces like ‘Are You Serious’ face, the ‘Yao Ming’ face as well as the ‘Are You F**king Kidding Me’ face.
The drawing was created for use on the forums of Cheat Engine, an open source game modifier. Chris Farral, better known by his handle Up2Admin, shared the first production of the image on August 10th, 2010 in the site’s art sub-forum after having finished it. One of the earliest comics utilizing the face was shared on Memebase on December 5th, 2010.
The face was allegedly used throughout the Cheat Engine forum before it began appearing on Reddit, 4chan’s /b/ (random), Facebook, and various miscellaneous blogs. It was added to the rage comic character repository All The Rage Faces on August 6th, 2011. It was used on humor blog Me Gusta Memes for the first time on September 17th, 2011, followed by an appearance on Funny Pictures Blog five days later. On September 23rd, 2011, Farral re-uploaded the image to DeviantArt, noting that he had seen the face begin to go viral and wanted to share it somewhere outside of the forums before another person tried to take credit it.
In December 2011, it was included in a rage face post on IGN forums. A Facebook fan page was created for the face in November 2011, which has 145 likes as of June 12th, 2012. Comics with ‘No.’ are shared on Tumblr under the tags “no rage face” and “no meme”.
