There are many emotes on Twitch, but there is a particular one that stands out among the rest: sadge. It is a common emote you’ll find in many Twitch chats, but what exactly does it mean? We have Sadge explained below.
What is the Sadge emote on Twitch?
The Sadge emote is a frog-like creature with large pink lips that has saddened eyes. It is usually activated in the chat when a sad moment occurs in a video game or with the Twitch streamer explaining bad news. Sadge is now its own word that’s spoken in the Twitch community by streamers and chatters online. It means that you’re sad or disappointed about a certain situation.
The Sadge emote originated as part of a Pepe the Frog webcomic that was used in memes there afterward, according to eSports.net. Now, almost 200,000 Twitch channels have this emote installed at the time of writing.

Other popular Twitch emotes have originated from the Pepe the Frog webcomic, such as monkas, PepeHands, and the creepy PepeLaugh that you can all find on BetterTTV. There’s also a Pepe alteration of the popular, yet now problematic emote, Poggers that has the frog’s eyes wide open in surprise.
