COGGERS Twitch Emote Meaning & Origin

COGGERS Meaning

COGGERS is an animated BTTV variant of the POGGERS emote which in turn, is a variation of Twitch’s PogChamp emote.

The word COGGERS is a portmanteau between the words POGGERS and COG. It was named this way because the COGGERS emote features POGGERS inside an animated, spinning cog.

COGGERS and POGGERS have the exact same meaning, both are used during a moment of excitement and they are often spammed at the same time.

Example

In valorant after you clutch a round – COGGERS

In League once you win the game – COGGERS

Basically whenever something exciting happens on stream, COGGERS can be spammed in the same way POGGERS and PogChamp are often spammed.


COGGERS Origin

You can find the origin of COGGERS all the way back in 2005 when Matt Furie uploaded the Boys Club comic to MySpace which featured Pepe the Frog. The amphibian became a meme on the internet being widely adopted by 4chan by 2008 and just about everywhere on the internet, including Twitch by 2015.

In 2012, Twitch released the global PogChamp emote, which didn’t feature Pepe the frog but featured the face of Ryan Gutierrez. PogChamp would go on to become one of the most popular emotes on the platform and the word PogChamp would become a big part of Twitch slang.

Variations of the word quickly started popping up such as POG and POGGERS.

By 2017, POGGERS was so popular it got uploaded as an emote to BetterTTV by user tO__Ot.

1 year later, due to the popularity of POGGERS, on the 25th of March in 2018, COGGERS was added to BetterTTV by user underflowR.

Today, COGGERS is enabled on over 22,000 Twitch channels. While it is often spammed together with POGGERS, it isn’t nearly as popular though.

While POGGERS is the 50th most used BetterTTV emote according to Stream Elements, COGGERS doesn’t make the top 100 just yet.
