The first known use of the term "Raildex" was seen in an anonymous post in the /a/ (Anime and Manga) board of ''4chan'' on October 31, 2009, just one day after the [[Toaru Kagaku no Railgun Episode 05|5th episode of ''Toaru Kagaku no Railgun'']] was first broadcasted. The post was in a thread arguing that ''Railgun'' is superior to ''Index''. It was the 6th reply in the thread, though the word was never mentioned again before the thread was pruned. Coincidentally, the term ''Ingun'' is also used in the post, another fandom term to refer to the franchise, though mostly as a joke.<ref name=ArchiveMoe>[http://archive.moe/a/thread/27088030/#27088481 'Raildex" post.

The term would later memetically spread the following month in /a/, with no apparent connection to the original "Raildex" post. From then on other anime-related websites with English-speaking communities such as ''AnimeSuki'' would use the term as well.
