RPC-471-A was initially categorized as alpha-white until discovery of related anomalies was documented. In 2016, there was a sudden emergence of a variety of internet posts related to the general content of RPC-471-A. These posts gained a large amount of popularity in internet humour sites, spawning several popular culture "memes". In response to the sudden increase in prevalence of RPC-471-A, decoding of posts relating to RPC-471-A began, resulting in the discovery of RPC-471-B, and RPC-471-C.

RPC-471-B is the designation for a variety of internet posts containing text taken directly from RPC-471-A. RPC-471-B, when decoded, contain variable text messages addressing instances of RPC-471-C. An IRC chat channel was discovered consisting entirely of users posting instances of RPC-471-B.

RPC-471-C is the designation for a group of quasi-corporeal entities responsible for creating RPC-471-A and RPC-471-B. RPC-471-C are occasionally seen in RPC-471-A, and appear as indistinguishable silhouettes with white pigmentation corresponding to the location of the eyes. It is unknown why RPC-471-C possess no discernible identifying features. RPC-471-C do not vocalize when present in RPC-471-A, and communicate with other instances through RPC-471-B. The presumed leader of RPC-471-C instances has been theorized to have connections to PoI "David Jettison".
