Where do you want to use the emoji?

If you want to try out a sample of the emoji first, join the official Discord server :D.

Are you an admin?

If not, you'll need to ask your server admin if they can add the emoji for you.

If you have Discord Nitro, you could instead make your own personal server for custom emoji. This means you can use whatever custom emoji you want anywhere without asking your server admin(s). You can follow the next steps with your own private server.

What computer are you on?

You need to be on a computer running Windows, macOS or Linux to upload emoji to Discord. You can't do it on tablets or phones with iOS or Android.

1. Download and unzip the emoji

Download the emoji package below.

Shortcode, PNG 128px
(17.8MB)

Then unzip the download. If you're on Windows on macOS, you should be able to do that just by double-clicking the .zip file.

2. Add the emoji to your server

Check out the link below if you don't already know how to add emoji to your server.

3. Attribute

Attributing is a legal requirement, but it's also generally cool because every designer deserves credit, and it helps people find the project! Don't worry, it's really easy.

Copy the text in the box below and paste it in a #readme / #about / #rules channel, or any kind of channel that users can't chat in or edit. If you don't have one, make one!

copy + paste this:
This server uses Mutant Standard emoji (https://mutant.tech) which are licensed under a Creative Commons Attribution-NonCommercial-ShareAlike 4.0 International License (https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc-sa/4.0/).

Experimental option

Daggertooth has made an unofficial script for undockerised instances. This will download, unzip and add every emoji from Mutant Standard.

1. Download

Shortcode
Codepoint

Shortcode emoji have human-readable names and an easy to read folder structure (ie. smile, hanafuda_card, thumbs_up_hmn_h1).

Use these if you just want to add a few custom emoji to a chat or forum server.

Also use these if you want to access all of Mutant Standard's emoji. (Codepoint versions don't have all Mutant Standard emoji yet. Find out more here.)

Codepoint emoji have machine-readable filenames based on Unicode codepoints (ie. 1f642, 1f3b4, 1f44d-1f3ff).

Use this if you have complete control over a web app and want to replace Unicode Standard emoji sets with Mutant Standard emoji, you want to browse Mutant Standard emoji by codepoint, or you just want any kind of software to go through Mutant Standard for you.

Currently, codepoint emoji only cover what is in the Unicode Standard (and some other cases), so not all emoji (such as alternative hand types and colours) are available in codepoint packages yet. Find out more here.

2. Use

If you're not sure how to use the emoji, this page has guides for various apps that might be able to help you.

3. Attribute

If you're just playing around with the emoji personally, you don't have to do this. If you are using them somewhere in public and fair use doesn't apply, then attributing the project is a legal requirement.

Don't worry, it's really easy. Just copy one version of the text below and paste it somewhere based on some of the tips below.

If it's a website or social app, put it somewhere static.

Put it in a static place only admins can edit (like a readme channel, about page or footer) and where anyone can easily see it. It should not be put in a message or post.

In other visual works, place it somewhere noticeable.

If you're using the emoji in some non-moving visual work, place it somewhere next to it wherever it is presented so people can see.

If the emoji are appearing in a presentation or video, place the plain text small version somewhere that works for you.

Use the full size if you can, but use the mini version if you can't.

If you can, place a full-size version, but if you don't have space or time, just use the mini version.
