Meaning and Description

The emoji is a cute representation of a squid, an octopus-like sea animal with ten arms. It has a slender, arrow-like body, small eyes, and two long arms raised up at its sides. It's typically depicted in a shade of pink or red, mimicking the natural colors of many squid species in the wild.

Squids are part of the mollusk family, which also includes other sea-dwelling creatures like snails and clams. Squids are known for their intelligence and their fascinating ability to change color and texture, making them a subject of interest for scientists and marine enthusiasts alike.

When it comes to its usage, it's most commonly used to represent the animal itself, especially in conversations about marine life or seafood. For instance, you might see it in a post about someone's trip to an aquarium, or in a foodie's tweet about enjoying a delicious calamari dish.

In the world of sports, particularly soccer, is often used to describe a player who seems to be everywhere on the field at once, much like a squid with its many reaching tentacles.

As the South Korean survival drama television series Squid Game exploded in 2021, this emoji has been used to refer to the TV show ever since.

Do not confuse Squid with Octopus. They are both cephalopods, which are marine animals with tentacles and no bones. However, they have some differences.
