What does MonkaOMEGA mean on Twitch?


The MonkaOMEGA emote is a variation of the MonkaS emote signifying that a very stressful situation is occurring.

MonkaOMEGA is used when the original MonkaS emote no longer suffices.

The MonkaOMEGA emote is a Pepe frog with extended eyes (similar to the MonkaS emote). The MonkaOMEGA emote looks similar to the MonkaGIGA emote, however they have distinct meanings. Both have large, enlarged eyes, but MonkaGIGA also has enlarged pupils, indicating that something is really frightening.

Origin of MonkaOMEGA on Twitch

User P3NTAZ posted MonkaOMEGA to BTTV in 2017, one year after the iconic MonkaS emote was initially published.
The original MonkaS emote was uploaded in 2016, but it wasn't taken up until 2017 when it became popular in streamer Forsen's chat. Forsen is a popular Twitch streamer known for his influence on emotes. Aside from MonkaS, he is also notable for popularizing the term'malding.'
Variations began to appear as soon as MonkaS began to gain popularity.

MonkaOMEGA emote Spread and Usage

Since its initial upload in 2017, MonkaOMEGA had been used in more than 20000 sets by 2020. It had been listed as a variation of the MonkaS emote on KnowYourMeme.

Monka emotes are counted among the most popular ones on Twitch TV, most likely because of the fact that they are depicting the widely known meme figure, Pepe the Frog, who’s been a prominent part of the meme side on the Internet.

How to get MonkaOMEGA emote on Twitch

If you want to use the MonkaOMEGA emote, you’ll have to make sure you have either the BTTV browser extension or the FrankerfaceZ browser extension. BTTV seems to be the more popular choice between streamers, but you’ll still be able to see MonkaOMEGA as long as you have one or the other.  We have a separate article dedicated to the installation of BTTV.

Installing the browser extensions is really simple, here’s how to do it:

  1. Visit the BTTV or the FrankerFaceZ websites and download the right extension for the browser you use. Once you download, click install, and you’re good to go.
  2. These extensions offer a lot of functionality aside from showing emotes, and you can explore them by configuring your settings. To configure them, just go to any streamer’s chat and click on the gear icon under the chatbox to bring up the settings menu.

You may have to refresh the page or restart your browser for the emotes to start showing up.

When Should You Use the MonkaOMEGA Emote?

Whenever a super stressful and anxious moment is occurring on a stream, you can use the MonkaOMEGA emote. For example, when a regular MonkaS doesn’t cut it, you’ll opt for the MonkaOMEGA emote.

Why is the MonkaOMEGA emote not working?

Remember that for emotes to work properly, both parties should have this extension installed.

If it’s just one side, e.g., the streamer or the viewer, you might have a problem seeing some emotes.

On the streamer’s part, they need to pick emotes that they want to enable in their channel.

You can perform a test by inputting a chat command. If it converts into an emote, it means the streamer has installed the extension.

How to add MonkaOMEGA to my stream?

You can add the MonkaOMEGA  and other emotes to your OWN Twitch channel by checking in with your Twitch credentials and authenticating your Twitch account at Better TV. Then, go to the emote list and add MonkaOMEGA to your Twitch channel.

Following that, your viewers will be able to utilize the FeelsStrongMan emote on your Twitch channel and see it if they have FrankerFaceZ/BTTV installed as a browser extension (which the majority does already anyway).

Origin of Pepe the frog Meme

Pepe The Frog is an anthropomorphic frog created by Matt Furie that first appears in the 2005 comic ‘Boy's Club.' Pepe became an online meme after Matt Furie shared the cartoon on his Myspace site in 2008; it rapidly went viral and was republished on 4chan. By 2015, it had become one of the most popular internet memes, with several versions of the frog appearing online.

Pepe the Frog had become a symbol of the alt-right and white supremacy groups by 2010. Matt Furie has now sued a number of similar radical organizations for seeking to profit on his illustration.

Matt, on the other hand, applauded the usage of Pepe the frog during the Hong Kong demonstrations.

The use of Pepe the frog and monka emotes on Twitch has nothing to do with alt-right activities.

How is MonkaOMEGA pronounced?
