It has become one of the most popular memes on the internet over the past few years, but its origins are strangely adorable. Back in 2012, a user on CakeWrecks.com posted a picture of a distressed Elmo atop a children’s birthday cake. Someone soon put the image in front of rising flames and Elmo Rise, aka Hellmo, was born.

It makes a cool profile picture simply because it is instantly recognizable and sums up how many of us feel in social situations. Elmo Rise is a good choice for almost any situation.

Northern Lights

Few people have the chance to see them, but they are one of the most famous natural phenomena on the planet. The Northern Lights occur when solar radiation bounces around on the Earth’s magnetic field, causing the sky to erupt in a dazzling display of color and light. It is a magical sight to take in, certainly cool enough to make for an understated profile picture.

Setting your profile picture to the Northern Lights is a way to inject a bit of magic into your online presence.

There is also a plethora of fan art for the Persona 5 characters out there for you to choose from that can make your profile picture just a little more unique. There are even plenty out there that can be cute as well as cool. Just be sure to credit the artist where you can.

Speaking of style, few anime have had the cool factor quite like Cowboy Bebop. Every character in every frame is an absolute mood. There is the smooth and mysterious Spike Spiegel, the treacherous but alluring Faye Valentine, the steady Jet Black, or the eccentric Ed. It is one of the coolest, most celebrated shows in anime history, with a character to match whatever vibe you’re trying to put out.

You can find images from the show that are casual, dramatic, or funny, but anyone who knows the source material will know exactly what you’re about when they see it, making it the perfect option to bring the cool factor to your profile picture on Discord, Steam, or anywhere else.
