PauseChamp is a variation of PogChamp which pretty much expresses the same thing. The difference is, PauseChamp has a closed mouth, which shows hesitation or suspense.
Much like PogChamp, PauseChamp expresses hype or an epic moment. But this emote has its mouth closed (with pursed lips) instead, making the emote seem like there is a bit of hesitation or suspense in enjoying the moment.
PauseChamp is a Twitch emote version of the ubiquitous PogChamp gesture. The distinction is that the PauseChamp emote features a closed lips, implying anticipation.
Typically, the Pausechamp emote is used before to the PogChamp emote.
This emote is not visible without the FrankerFaceZ or BTTV plugins installed.
The PauseChamp emote was uploaded to FrankerFaceZ in 2019 as a version of the famous PogChamp emote by user PaulieLUL.
PogChamp, like other popular emotes, has a plethora of versions. The PauseChamp emote was designed in response to Twitch fans’ requests for an emote to represent the build-up anticipation before we enter a PogChamp moment.
They utilized a screenshot from the original PogChamp video as the emote’s face, in which Ryan Gutierrez is seen making the notorious facial expression after the cameraman accidently toppled over the tripod.
Twitch has replaced Ryan Gutierrez as the face of the original PogChamp emote with the face of a lizard following a string of contentious tweets by Ryan Gutierrez.
The complete reason why PogChamp was banned can be found in our PogChamp emote article.
