FeelsBadMan is a BTTV emote for Twitch that is part of the Pepe the Frog family. This emote is the opposite of the FeelsGoodMan emote.

FeelsBadMan is used during disappointing moments on a Twitch stream. You can use it whenever you’re disappointed in yourself or when you’re disappointed in the actions of a teammate.

If mistakes are made, FeelsBadMan emotes are spammed in the chat.

Alternatively, FeelsBadMan is also used when a story makes you feel sad.

Aside from the emote, the phrase “feels bad man” is often used as Twitch slang by streamers to indicate they failed at something.


In Valorant: “My shots didn’t connect, feels bad man.”

In League of Legends: “My teammate literally watched me get killed, feels bad man.”

FeelsBadMan Origin

The origin of FeelsBadMan and the rest of the Pepe the Frog family dates back to 2005 when Matt Furie, the creator of Pepe, published the ‘boys club’ comic to his MySpace.

This comic featured Pepe the Frog saying the now infamous phrase ‘feels good man‘. 3 years after Matt published the comic to his MySpace, Pepe became HUGE on the 4chan message boards and users started creating many variations of the amphibian.

In 2009, the phrase ‘Feels Bad Man’ became very popular across 4chan to indicate you feel bad after a sad story.

After that, Pepe emotes started being picked up on other places on the internet but they didn’t really become mainstream until 2015.

By 2015, Pepe the Frog was an internet-wide meme and many variations of the emote were floating around the web.

In that same year, FeelsBadMan was uploaded as a universal emote on the BetterTTV browser extension. This means you will be able to use FeelsBadMan on every Twitch channel
