Origin

  • Poorfag is a background classmate in episode 4. She does not have an official name, and fans dubbed her Poorfag. Some fans call her Poor-chan or Poorfag-chan.
  • What makes her appeal to many fans is that everyone except her is using a laptop to complete their school work. This led to a joke image macro of "Poorfags gonna poor." What started out as a simple joke has since become quite popular, even getting Poorfag her own mini comic and fanart.
  • She was first noticed in general thread #92 .

Speculation

  • Fans believe that she does not have a laptop because she is too poor to afford one.
  • Despite the destitution she endures, Poorfag is an honorable, innocent, and generous girl who remains positive and make the best of her circumstances. Since she is so resistant to despair, her soul has no value to Kyubey.
  • She is attending school on a full scholarship.
  • She lives in a cardboard box
  • Some fans believe that Poorfag is a miracle of the Universe. Kyubey's civilization created an artificial human to gather all the despairs and miseries of the world withing herself while everything else remained in equilibrium. What they did not expect was that she would continue to give the world her smile of hope while surrounded in misery. Kyubey considered this experiment to be a failed attempt at creating a misfortune-gathering artificial little female homosapien for the Incubators. She turn out to be too optimistic and it nullified all despairs within her soul. The project was scrapped and she was abandoned on the planet, today she is a student writing letters to her "Mother in Heaven" (the sky aliens).
  • Yurifans believe that she is the answer to Mami's loneliness. Mami comes from a wealthy background yet she is all alone so she is emotionally starving for affection and friends (she is filling with despair). Some fans suspect that Poorfag is not only poor but she has no friends and no family to support her financially and emotionally, so she is all by herself yet she has the courage and a cheerful smile to face the world on her own (she is beaming with hope). Mami could take Poorfag into her home, take care of her, provide for her. and Mami would receive the emotional affection and the intimacy that she desperately needs. Poorfag would not only be financially supported by Mami but she would also receive the emotional affection and support from another person that has been absent all along (other than her mother in heaven).
  • They would complement each other nicely, Mami would receive emotional support that she needs so she wont fall into despair, and Poorfag would receive the financial support to allow her to move up into the world and perhaps one day inspire others to believe in miracles. Plus, Poorfag would have a real friend and a lover so she wont need to worry her mother in heaven, since Poorfag wont be alone anymore.
  • This would basically mean that Mami would become Poorfag Sugar Mammies.
