First use of the furry version of "OwO" online
The first popularized image meme of "OwO" used

OwO, also stylized as owo, as a furry term, is a chat emoticon and meme used in furry text-based conversation and roleplay, normally with a sexual connotation, sometimes as a trolling term.[1] The two Os represent wide and open eyes, and the w represents a cutesy anime-styled mouth.


An alternate to this term is the UwU emoticon, borrowed from kaomoji, a type of Japanese emoticon which incorporates special characters used in Japanese writing. Kaomoji is considered kawaii, or "cute”, and often draw on anime and manga. UwU is a simplified form of the kaomoji emoticon, “(o・ω・o)”.[2] This emoticon is also used as a more passive one, using closed eyes instead of open ones.


  • OwO can simply be used as an emoticon in text-based chatting.
  • Play-on words and puns involving OwO and UwU are noted (e.g. fursuwuit; a pun derived from the word fursuit).
  • Furries sometimes use "OwO" in response to something sexual, implying excitement or interest.

Origin and spread[edit]

The earliest known furry use of the emoticon was on January 6, 2013, on DeviantArt by user CookiMuffinFaic. It received over 130 views, 3 comments, and 3 downloads in about 3 and a half years.

On June 24, 2015, MinotaurusPro uploaded a parody comic of two grotesque furry fanssexually roleplaying to Imgur. One of the two characters shown comments in response to a message he received with:


awwww!~ *nuzzles u back and pounces on u and notices your buldge* OwO what's this..?".



The post garnered a positive response and gained attention within the furry fandom.

Memes mimicking the original post followed soon after,[citation needed] with content such as recreations of the origin, and puns involving UwU and OwO emoticons. A video by Seelmaru was uploaded in 2019 featuring a song based off of a spinoff from the meme's origin.

Before emoji took over, we had the humble emoticon. Emoticons use keyboard characters to represent facial expressions and emotions, like the classic smiley, :-). 

In the case of uwu, the u is supposed to represent eyes and w, the mouth. The overall effect is meant to look cute, depicting a face of someone feeling all warm and fuzzy—as if the eyes are closed and the nose and mouth are scrunched up in a playful, smiling “Aww!” As for owo, the o‘s depict eyes wide open with surprise.

Uwu is connected to kaomoji, a type of Japanese emoticon which incorporates special characters used in Japanese writing. Kaomoji are considered kawaii, or “cute,” and often draw on anime and manga. Uwu is likely a simplified form of such kaomoji as (o・ω・o).

An early instance of uwu (as Uwu) can be found online at least by 2005 on an English-language anime and manga fan fiction site. It was likely being used in East Asian digital communication well before it.

Uwu and owo spread online in the late 2000s with the rise of social media and the increasing popularity of East Asian popular culture in the West.

Uwu got a lot of mainstream attention in 2018 after Mark Hamill (you know, Luke Skywalker?!) tweeted uwu as a fan request.

By 2013, the emoticon OwO had been embraced by the furry community, so much so that the expression OwO whats this was used as a way of mocking furries (specifically, the stereotype that they are too … horny). As with many things used to mock people, some furries reclaimed the OwO insult.
