Awesome Face (also known as Epic Face) is the name given to a round yellow-colored face, with eyes looking upward to it's left and a big smiling mouth, so as to give the impression of a blissfully happy, joyful face. He is part of a face species that lives on the planet Epic World. He is somehow best friends with Weegee.
Due to its simplistic nature, the face has been manipulated and exploited greatly. It is regularly seen in popular web forums (such as SomethingAwful) as well as image boards (such as 4chan), and even occasionally in children's websites (such as Roblox), in both unaltered and altered forms. It is commonly used as a reaction face “To express a high level of approval or ironically to express disdain". But don't let that face fool you, he is a powerful face that shouldn't be messed with. Awesome Face has gone toe to toe against beings that have the power to destroy galaxies and maybe even more than that.
According to gaming blog driph (administrated by Chris Ainsworth), the Awesome Face was part of a series of emoticons designed and illustrated for the Pokemon-related web forum Pokemopolis. According to the designer (whose identity is unknown), the face is best described as a “ridiculous childish glee”. It's design might be a reference to certain Pokemon such as Lavender Town GHOST and Missingno's GHOST form.
Awesome Face later gained popularity through popular forums and image boards, notably SomethingAwful and 4January 2007, a forum thread on SomethingAwful, started by user Kiss My Butt America, outlined the large popularity among the forums’ users and the variations caused due to its popularity. Due to the prolific nature of the Awesome Face, it can be considered to be an “established” or “classic” meme, as mentioned by OhInternet.
Epic Universe Edit
Awesome Face played a major role as one of the main protagonists in Epic Universe. Epic Universe was a series created by SwiftVisionX, which ran a total of 150 episodes (including episode 0) from March 24 2014, to October 2 2015. He along side with Weegee, Deegee, and Z-Demon had fought against many foes in order to protect not only Epic World and Geetopia, but the universe itself from dangerous foes such as Demon Weegee and Seventy-Five. During the fights they had, Awesome Face had achieved several forms with his most powerful being his Ultra form which was the strongest out the four prophesized god forms the others had meaning Weegee in his prophesized form (Aka Dark Angel Weegee) was extremely close to being as powerful as Awesome Face at the time.
