Origin of Poggers: PogChamp
The “Poggers” emote has been around since 2017. It was inspired by that “PogChamp” emote that through a YouTube video got known. Here youTuber Ryan “Gootecks” Gutierrez makes the iconic expression with his mouth wide open as part of the show “Cross Counter TV”.
“Pog” stands for “Play of Game” and “Champ”, which is the short form of “Champion”. It is also used to comment on exciting situations. The “PogChamp” meme appeared for the first time in 2009 in a 4chan thread. Since it was recorded as a global Twitch emote three years later, it has spread around the world.
Poggers and Pepe the frog
In connection with the well-known internet meme “Pepe the Frog”, the “Poggers” emote was created. The green frog has been modified numerous times since its first appearance in Matt Furie’s comic in 2005, including in the form of “MonkaS”
This is how you use Poggers
Since you are in the gaming world and on platforms like Twitch, you can easily use “Poggers” yourself. The “Poggers” emote is part of the FrankerFaceZ extension, but is not only used figuratively. You can comment on an unexpected or exciting event with “Poggers” or the appropriate emote.
In doing so, you should never lose sight of the context. Because “Poggers” can both mean “well done” when a situation has been mastered extraordinarily well, as well as mean maliciously.
