Discord is one of the most popular VoIP programs in the world. While it was originally meant for gamers, the program has since expanded to include all sorts of communities with more and more features being added every day. 

However, with so many small quirks and features now cluttering Discord, the program can get a little confusing at times. In this article, we’re talking about Super Reactions in Discord.

Discord Super Reactions Explained

You can use any emoji to react to a message, that’s a pre-existing feature that has been in Discord for some time now. However, with Super Reactions you get animated emojis that stand out from regular reactions for a completely different look. 

While Super Reactions are a Discord Nitro feature, free users do get two Super Reactions. That said, Discord has limited the feature’s use to avoid cluttering servers with random animations all over the place. Discord Nitro members can use up to five Super Reactions in a week, while Nitro Basic or Classic members can use only two. If you don’t use your Super Reactions in a week, they’ll roll over and can be used with the next week’s batch. 

Another thing to keep in mind is that if you remove your Super Reaction from a message, you won’t get it back. Additionally, if a Super Reaction isn’t within the server guidelines, admins or moderators can remove them as well. Last but not least, Discord also has the option to disable Super Reactions altogether. If you find them too distracting, head over to accessibility settings where these reactions can be disabled.

How to send a Super Reaction?

If you’re ready to send Super Reactions, just follow these steps. 

Step 1: Open a chat, whether in a DM or on a server. Hover your cursor over the message and click on the Super Reaction button.

Step 2: Select the emoji you want to send as the Super Reaction and you’re good to go. Make sure you’re in the Super Reaction tab before selecting your emoji.
