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

If you have been in a Twitch stream you may have seen people type, or heard people say “widepeepoSad”. But what does this word and emote mean? 

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

What Does The widepeepoSad Emote Mean?

The widepeepoSad emote is meant to convey extreme sadness. It is supposed to be an exaggerated version of the peepoSad emote which also conveys sadness or disappointment. In fact, both emotes use the same image of Peepo with the difference being that the widepeepoSad emote is stretched wider.

However, like most emotes, the widepeepoSad emote is often used ironically and if a person uses the emote in chat it does not always mean that they are truly sad.

widepeepoSad Origin?

The widepeepoSad emote is based on Peepo, who is derived from Pepe the Frog, a cartoon created by Matt Furie in 2005. The widepeepoSad emote was originally uploaded to FFZ on December 13th, 2018 by rSherms and then to BTTV on May 14th, 2020 by JustJirka05.

Although the emote is based on Pepe the Frog, the real idea for the emote itself came from the monkaS emote. The monkaS emote was originally used on 4chan in 2011, and has since grown into one of the most popular emotes/memes on the internet.

The monkaS emote has even inspired other popular emotes such as as monkaWmonkaH, and monkaEyes.

However, although the original idea for the widepeepoSad emote may have come from the monkaS emote, it is not Pepe the Frog (or monka) who is featured in the emote.

In fact, the widepeepoSad emote is based off of Peepo, a derivative of Pepe the Frog. Peepo’s real name is Apu Apustaja which means “help helper” in English.

Peepo is often referred to as a younger, cuter, more lively looking version of Pepe the Frog. Although the idea for Peepo came from Pepe the Frog, the two are two different characters or memes if you will.

The idea for Peepo came from a Finnish message board several years ago and then in 2017 the first Peepo emote was uploaded to FFZ and Twitch users fell in love with it.

From there, emotes and memes depicting Peepo began to explode in popularity. Today, Peepo based emotes are some of the most popular emotes on platforms such as Twitch, Youtube, and Discord.

The widepeepoSad emote is just an example of an emote based on Peepo, although it is one of the more popular Peepo based emotes.

The widepeepoSad emote is currently used on over 100,000 Twitch channels between BTTV and FFZ combined. It is currently the 14th most popular emote on FFZ.

How To Use The widepeepoSad Emote On Twitch?

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

Make sure you type widepeepoSad 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.

The widepeepoSad emote is best used when something very sad or heartbreaking happens on the stream. For example, if a streamer is playing in a major tournament and then loses in a close match, their chat may use this emote.
