The lizard people are taking over Twitch today after the platform made its “KomodoHype” emote the face of PogChamp.

As of February 12th, 2021, KomodoHype is the new permanent PogChamp. The community has spoken! Let's fire up the PogChamp Machine and activate the new face of Pog. On Friday, KomodoHype, a meme-worthy Komodo dragon, became the new face of the PogChamp emote after a monthlong tryout period. The streaming company announced the results of the election on Twitter. KomodoHype is the new PogChamp By Jay Peters @jaypeters Feb 12, 2021, 6:00pm EST On January 6th, the day a riot of pro-Trump supporters stormed the US Capitol, Twitch removed the iconic PogChamp.

Following the removal of PogChamp earlier this month due to insensitive comments made by Ryan “Gootecks” Gutierrez, Twitch decided to keep things interesting by reinstating the emote with new faces.

Over the course of the past week and a half, Twitch has changed the face of PogChamp every 24 hours. Prior to today, Twitch was using that revolving door of rotating emotes as a way to promote various streamers on the platform.

While the idea was among the most popular for solving January’s PogChamp problem, some users weren’t interested in having new faces. A faction of Twitch users wanted PogChamp to be replaced by KomodoHype.

With its mouth agape just like Gooteck’s PogChamp emote, KomodoHype had everything PogChamp had but with a larger mouth and some reptilian skin.

Following the removal of PogChamp, the use of KomodoHype on Twitch increased nearly tenfold. Statistics gathered by Twitchemotes.com show that KomodoHype was used more than one million times per day from Jan. 7 to 9 after being used less than 300,000 times a day in the months prior on average.

Since Twitch’s changes to PogChamp, KomodoHype has continued its uptick in usage, getting 438,000 to 644,225 uses daily.

Twitch hasn’t made any post suggesting that it’s going back on its promise to make PogChamp a different face every day. In fact, just yesterday, the platform promoted its daily PogChamp face change on social media.

Though the victory for KomodoHype will likely only last 24 hours, it puts the emote in impressive company that includes top Spanish-speaking streamer TheGrefg, who recently broke the platform’s record for concurrent viewers.

The Komodo dragon emote KomodoHype has been chosen to replace PogChamp after Twitch removed the iconic emote due to controversy with the content creator it was inspired from.

On January 6, PogChamp was removed after Ryan 'Gootecks' Gutierrez made statements calling for further violence following the riot at the US Capitol. A few days later, Twitch announced that it would start rotating a new version of PogChamp every day. This meant that many streamers were able to be the new face of the emote.

The Twitch community then voted to crown a new face for the PogChamp emote during a live broadcast. It was revealed on a Twitch stream that the new PogChamp would be KomodoHype.

'It's always made sense to [Twitch] that if the community votes for what they want to use, that is what will ultimately be the most popular,' Twitch's Marcus Graham said during the PogChamp selection stream.

New Pogchamp

KomodoHype was chosen over another popular streamer's version of the PogChamp emote, UmiNoKaiju.

It seemed that the Twitch community wanted KomodoHype even before Twitch started rotating PogChamp emotes with various streamers' faces. Movements from social media have led up to the vote of a KomodoHype replacement. Since the removal of the original PogChamp, KomodoHype has been used over 400,000 per day. Between the time that PogChamp was removed and KomodoHype was implemented, the KomodoHype emote was used between 438,000 to over 600,000 times per day.

Twitch has now implemented KomodoHype. Twitch users can still use the old KomodoHype as well as typing in 'PogChamp' to get the emote to show. The scaley reptile is a great replacement because of its wide mouth, which resembles a huge smile, marking epic moments in Twitch history.


Fans are happy with the new emote and now streamers across the platform can be free of fear from harassment that some of the featured streamers received, such as Pokémon streamer Reversal, who said he experienced light trolling, and actor and vocalist Omega 'CriticaBard' Jones who experienced 'hurtful messages and death threats.
