4Weird Twitch Emote Meaning & Origin

Last Updated on 05/19/2021 by Dean

What does the 4Weird emote mean on Twitch?

The 4Weird emote is a variant of the popular 4HEad emote that just like the 4Head emote features LoL streamer Cadburry’s face. In this version, Cadburry is doing a ‘weirded out’ face expression hence the naming, 4Weird.

The 4Weird emote is used whenever a streamer does something on stream that would weird out the audience. It can also be used when something odd happens in general. 4Weird is seen as a more extreme version of the popular WeirdChamp emote and is often used when the WeirdChamp emote just doesn’t cut it anymore.

What is the origin of the 4Weird emote on Twitch?

The origin of 4Weird goes back to the original emote 4HEad. 4HEad was uploaded to FrankerFaceZ back in 2015 by Cadburry’s community and was frequently spammed by them whenever Cadburry made a cheesy dad joke on stream.

The 4HEad emote picked up beyond Cadburry’s community and has since become a meme and 4head has become part of Twitch slang.

As most popular Twitch emotes eventually get variants, the 4Weird emote was uploaded to FrankerFaceZ by user NyroLoL in 2019.

Since its upload, the emote has been widely adopted as the universal emote used whenever one feels weirded out in a Twitch stream.

When to use 4Weird on Twitch?

If you feel extremely weirded out during a Twitch stream, spam the 4Weird emote. Sometimes, this emote is used alongside or after the WeirdChamp emote is used.
