Ur a Faget is a bastardized form of “You’re a Faggot”, a highly common insult used online towards another poster’s belief or behavior. The phrase first became popular when it was used in a MS Paint comic featuring the main characters from the video game Devil May Cry 3, and has since been used in exploitable images with the viewer looking disgruntled, in a similar vain as Dick Butt.
The first archived instance of the original comic dates back to December 17th, 2007, when an anonymous 4chan user managed to get a 9,000,000 GET (a post with a significant post number) on 4chan’s /v/ (video games) board. The comic itself shows a crudely drawn MS Paint style featuring the main character from the Devil May Cry series, Dante, sending a note reading “ur a faget” to his brother Vergil in an over the top manner.

A photoshopped version of Vergil’s expression was posted in the initial thread in the form of a computer reaction face showing the reaction towards a 4chan post reading “ur a faget” (shown below, left). 2 weeks later, on December 30th, a similar reaction image was uploaded to the Guildwars Wikia in a reaction to an edited Wikipedia header reading “ur a faget” (shown below, right).
On March 2nd, 2008, DeviantArt user Sephi-hatu uploaded an animated version of the original comic (shown below, left). On May 28th, 2008, Youtuber Waruko8D uploaded a slideshow video featuring the comic, while replacing the phrase with Gutsman’s Ass. On September 27th, 2010, DeviantArt user Kaiichi uploaded an image of alternate Dante in reply to the announcement of the game DMC: Devil May Cry (shown below, right), a game which was initially criticized due to its reboot of both the series and the character.

Both the phrase “ur a faget” and Dante’s facial expression grew to become popular exploitables to be used in combination with the passing and reading of short notes or letters, in a similar vein as dick butt. Additional examples of this can be found in the image gallery and through the Tumblr tag “ur-a-faget”.
