The detective emoji is nominally un-gendered, though it appears to be quite clearly a man, and it is often referred to as the “sleuth or spy” emoji. Since 2016, a number of emoji platforms have released a female variant to accompany this male version. On all platforms, the emoji is shown wearing a wide brimmed hat, and often with a magnifying glass raised to one eye. Some versions will have it wearing dark sunglasses, or with its face nearly obscured by the upturned collar of its coat. It has a wide range of meanings, and is often used to signal that something is top secret, or to say that someone is investigating something.
