What Does COGGERS Mean? – Origin & How To Use It

If you have been in a Twitch stream you may have seen or heard people say “COGGERS”. But what does this mean? 

In this article I go over the meaning of “COGGERS”, the origin, and how you can use this emote on Twitch and Youtube as a viewer and as a streamer. 

What Does COGGERS Mean?

The COGGERS emote is meant to convey excitement, or to hype up an epic moment in the stream. It is essentially a combination of the POGGERS emote and the PogChamp emote. It also carries the same meaning as the POGGERS and PogChamp emotes.

Even though the meaning of POGGERS, PogChamp, and COGGERS are all the same, some viewers prefer to express themselves with different emotes and that’s why there is such a variety to choose from.

COGGERS Origin

The COGGERS emote is based on Pepe the Frog, a cartoon created by Matt Furie in 2005, and the PogChamp emote. The COGGERS emote was originally uploaded to BTTV on March 24th, 2018 by underflowR and then to FFZ on May 10th, 2018 by voparoS_. The BTTV version of the emote is animated, the FFZ version is not.

Although the COGGERS emote is based on Pepe the Frog, the real idea for the emote itself came from combining the monkaS emote and the PogChamp emote.

The monkaSemote was originally used on 4chan in 2011, and has since grown into one of the most popular emotes/memes on the internet.

The PogChamp emote comes from Ryan “Gootecks” Gutierrez’s reaction to a cameraman knocking over their camera in an interview that Ryan did in 2010.

His reaction would be used to create the PogChamp emote which would become one of the most popular emotes on Twitch before it was removed in 2021.

And you can check out Ryan’s iconic reaction in the short video below.

Both the monkaS emote and the PogChamp emote were used as inspirations for other emotes such as monkaW, monkaH, and weirdChamp.

COGGERS is really just another emote that was inspired by these two legendary emotes.

The COGGERS emote is currently used on close to 30,000 Twitch channels between BTTV and FFZ combined; however, since the animated version of the emote is much more popular than the static version, the emote is much more popular on BTTV than it is on FFZ.


How To Use The COGGERS Emote On Twitch?

  1. Add the FFZ or the BTTV Google extensions to your Twitch account.
  2. Make sure the streamer has the COGGERS emote enabled on their channel.
  3. Type “COGGERS” in the streamer’s Twitch chat (without the quotation marks) and send the message.
  4. The COGGERS emote will now appear in the stream’s chat. 

Make sure you type COGGERS exactly as it appears with the correct spelling and capitalization. If you don’t, it won’t work. Also, a streamer must have the emote enabled on either BTTV or FFZ in order for it to work. 

Another cool thing is that if you are on PC, you can just click the little emoji button and select which emote you want to send in Twitch chat.

If you need more help I wrote an entire article about adding BTTV emotes to your Twitch account and adding FFZ to your Twitch account. These guides are helpful for both streamers and viewers. 

How To Use The COGGERS Emote On Youtube?

  1. Add the BTTV Google extension to your Youtube account.
  2. Make sure the streamer has the COGGERS emote enabled on their channel.
  3. Type “COGGERS” in the streamer’s chat (without the quotation marks) and send the message.
  4. The COGGERS emote will now appear in the stream’s chat. 

If you need more help I wrote an entire article about adding BTTV emotes to your Youtube account. This guide will help regardless if you are a streamer or a viewer. 

Unfortunately, FFZ and Youtube Gaming are not currently compatible and so you will only be able to use this emote on Youtube with the BTTV extension. 

When To Use The COGGERS Emote?

The COGGERS emote is best used in situations that are exciting on stream, or when hype is building on a stream for something exciting that is about to occur. Any situation where you would use the POGGERS emote or the PogChamp emote, you could also use the COGGERS emote.

Why Is The COGGERS Emote Not Appearing In Chat?

Here are common reasons why the COGGERS emote may not be appearing in chat:

  1. The viewer trying to use the emote does not have the BTTV or FFZ extension.
  2. The streamer does not have the BTTV or FFZ extension.
  3. The streamer does not have the COGGERS emote enabled on their channel.
  4. The viewer is trying to use the emote on mobile.
  5. The person did not type “COGGERS” correctly.
  6. Twitch or Youtube banned the emote.

The reasons listed above are the most common reasons why the COGGERS emote won’t work in chat. 

If you feel like you have checked off everything listed above, and the COGGERS emote still won’t work for you, then check out my article here where I go into more detail as to why your emotes may not be working and how to fix it. 

How Is COGGERS Pronounced?

The word COGGERS is pronounced “cog-gers”. You first say the word “cog” normally, then the ‘-gers’ ending of the word sounds like the ‘-gers’ ending in the word “daggers”.

Are COGGERS And Poggers The Same Thing?

The COGGERS emote and the POGGERS emote have the same meaning, and both feature Pepe the Frog, but they are not the same emote. The POGGERS emote is a static emote based off of the PogChamp emote, and the COGGERS emote is an animated emoted that is shaped like a cog and spins in circles.

You can see the difference between the two emotes below.
