Derpina is a nickname mainly associated with female characters portrayed in rage comics. While there are several iterations of the character with varying facial expressions, Derpina is most often depicted with a wall-eyed derp face or a smile in Japanese-style emoticon (^ ^).


Most likely derived from the male counterpart Derp, Derpina began appearing in rage comics as early as 2010. One of the first documented uses of the name in a rage comic was posted in a “Memes of 4chan” thread[7] on the PokerStrategy forums on February 9th, 2011.
