Where does 😤 Face with Steam from Nose emoji come from?


The face with steam from nose emoji was first approved as part of Unicode 6.0 in 2010 under the name Face With Look of Triumph and was intended to reflect a feeling of victory or pride. Hmmm.

That was later downgraded to “disdainful,” but clearly this emoji depicts emotions like anger, frustration, determination, and pride, more than disdain. Though, instead of steam coming out of the little guy’s head, which is generally how we express this kind of discontent (in the world of cartoons and illustrations anyway), it’s raging out of his nostrils, which is sort of weird.

It was added to Emoji 1.0 in 2015.
