Introduced in 2016, the gorilla emoji is quite a different beast to the monkey emojis! It can appear drastically different depending on the emoji platform used, and ranges in appearance from the super realistic, full body image used by the likes of Apple and Emojidex to the simpler and more cartoon-y images used by others such as Samsung and Twitter, and which only show the head of the gorilla. In all versions, the coal black ape appears to be male and has come to be associated with strength and masculinity, albeit sometimes wild and rough around the edges! It can – of course – also be used to simply represent the animal or African wildlife.
