๐Ÿก Blowfish

A blowfish (puffer), which puffs up and becomes spiky when alarmed. Depicted as an orange or brown blowfish in full profile facing left, with small fins, a white underside, and a round, spiky body, as if inflated.

Called fugu in Japan, where it’s consumed as a delicacy.

May be to represent a variety of fish (saltwater or freshwater), fishing, metaphorical senses of fish, and fish as food, as consumed in the form of ๐Ÿฃ Sushi. Not to be confused with ๐ŸŸ Fish or ๐Ÿ  Tropical Fish, though their applications may overlap. See also ๐ŸŽฃ Fishing Pole.

Google’s blowfish was previously blue, Microsoft’s yellow, and Facebook’s white.

Blowfish was approved as part of Unicode 6.0 in 2010 and added to Emoji 1.0 in 2015.
