HUH is a Twitch emote that represents confusion, as shown by the turtle Verne, from the Over The Hedge video game released in 2006. On Twitch, the emote slowly rose to prominence before becoming popularized after Canadian streamer xQc added it to his channel in 2022.


The emote was added to the site 7TV on September 15th, 2021, by the user PentalexLive[1] and then later FrankerFacez by the user hyruverse[2] on September 20th, 2021, with a photo set included of both light and dark mode Twitch chat options. The emote went on to be used in over 4,000 Twitch channels within a year of being uploaded (shown below).

The emote in question comes from the Over The Hedge game, released in 2006, with the turtle Verne not actually expressing confusion, but rather annoyance in the original scene used in the image. This can be seen in mission four of the game, titled "Caught In The Hedge," with a walkthrough of the mission being uploaded to YouTube on December 22nd, 2013, by the channel Vabanker[3] with the exact scene happening at the 00:39-second mark (shown below).


After being created in late 2021, the emote received basic usage in many Twitch chats as a way to express confusion at what was happening on stream, often during a game or when a Twitch streamer was saying something out of pocket in a story to the chat. This usage began to change after it was included in xQc's Twitch chat, which happened on March 31st, 2022, with it replacing the uncommonly used VaN emote — as reported by the Twitter account @xQcUpdates,[4] with this development getting over 1,200 likes in five months (shown below).

The emote almost immediately started to make an impact on the chat, with people donating outlandish things for the text-to-speech function to read out, causing the chat to spam the emote as a response. The emote became so ingrained into xQc's chat that the YouTuber xQcClips[5] uploaded a video about the history of the emote to YouTube on August 2nd, 2022 (shown below).
