About

The Psycho Wojak or Demonic Grin Wojak, also known as "Le Scary Face", is a Wojak variant of Feels Guy with an unnaturally large grin and black, beady eyes. Its first known posting was on 4chan in 2018, and going into the 2020s, the character became closely associated with the NATO Article 5 Memes and others made about the 2022 Russian Invasion of Ukraine posted to subreddits like /r/PoliticalCompassMemes.

Origin

Currently, the Psycho Wojak's first known upload was made to 4chan's /v/ [1] board on September 14th, 2018, by an anonymous user who wrote "Have you ever been scared by a game? i havent" (shown below). The post received numerous replies including one[2] that said, "good 'jak, what is it called?"
