Introduced in 2016, the bat emoji shows a bat with wings outstretched, midflight. Different versions of the emoji can be different colors, but usually it is a shade of brown, grey or black. It has noticeably large ears and often pictured with a distinctly furry body. It has a number of different uses and meanings aside from its most obvious: that of a bat. It can also be used to talk about the Batman franchise or in conversations about night time and the dark. Its close association with vampires means that its often used in discussions about those mythical creatures or when talking about Halloween parties and festivities.
