What Does The FeelsRainMan Emote Mean? – Origin & How To Use It

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

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

What Does The FeelsRainMan Emote Mean?

The FeelsRainMan emote can be used to convey two things: one, that it is literally raining, or two, that something unlucky or bad keeps happening on stream. It can have a similar meaning to the metaphor “When it rains, it pours.”

FeelsRainMan Emote

The emote is not typically used when one bad thing happens on a stream but rather it is used when one bad thing after another bad thing keeps happening on a stream.

FeelsRainMan Emote Origin

The FeelsRainMan emote is based on Pepe the Frog, a cartoon created by Matt Furie in 2005. The FeelsRainMan emote was originally uploaded to BTTV on July 12th, 2016 by gerych. It is not currently available on FFZ.

Although the FeelsRainMan emote is based on Pepe the Frog, the real idea for the emote itself came from the monkaS  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.

In fact, the monkaS emote has inspired other great emotes such as monkaWmonkaH, and monkaEyes. FeelsRainMan is truly just another spinoff of monkaS.

The FeelsRainMan emote is closely related to the FeelsBadMan, FeelsSadMan, and other emotes that begin in “Feels” and end in “Man”.

These emotes are often used to express emotion in a stream and the various emotes make it easier to express a variety of emotions.

However, as you can tell, the FeelsRainMan emote is not tied to a specific emotion making it slightly different from the other “Feels” emotes.

The FeelsRainMan emote is currently used on over 34,000 Twitch channels on BTTV. It is also the 71st most used emote on BTTV.

The FeelsRainMan Emote is only available on BTTV as an animated emote and is not available on FFZ.

How To Use The FeelsRainMan Emote On Twitch

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

Make sure you type FeelsRainMan 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 BTTV 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.

When To Use The FeelsRainMan Emote?

The FeelsRainMan emote is best used in situations where the streamer keeps having bad luck. For example, if a streamer keeps losing at the same spot in a game and then their game crashes, their chat may spam the FeelsRainMan emote.

Like I touched on earlier, it is most commonly used when a streamer is repeatedly faced with bad luck on their stream.

Why Is The FeelsRainMan Emote Not Appearing In Chat?

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

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

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

How To Pronounce FeelsRainMan?

To pronounce FeelsRainMan you just say the words “feels”, “rain” and “man” normally, but separatley. Feels-Rain-Man.

If you live in an area that rains frequently, this could be a good emote to add to your stream for your chat to use whenever it is raining by you.

However, since the emote is not very popular, you may have to explain the emote to your stream before putting it out there.
