Kappa

Meaning

Sarcasm

Kappa is another way to say JK or accentuate a sarcastic comment in the gaming world, especially on Twitch. It is the most popular and important face emoticon in Twitch.tv chat.

The term originally began as a Twitch emote that was an image of Josh DeSeno's face, who is now a former Justin.tv staff member. It has since taken off as a trolling meme much to the chagrin of many gamers. If a sentence ends with "Kappa," it should not be taken seriously.

Example

"You missed another power-up, you're really good at this game. Kappa"
