Good news, mermen: Soon you will finally have an emoji to express yourself. News initially broke back in November that new emojis were on their way, and the Unicode Consortium has officially released the 69 new emojis that will come with its newest update.
Included will everything from dinosaurs, to exploding heads, to myriad magical creatures like wizards and vampires. You’ll want to dive into the Emojipedia blog for the full list on all things edible, mythical, and emotional, though you shouldn’t get too attached to these images yet.

Unicode may establish the language of emojis, but sometimes these end up being rendered differently on various platforms. Anyone with that one friend who has an Android phone already knows this. As Emojipedia writes, “Original sample images from Emojipedia visualizing how new emojis may look when they come to fruition. These mockups are created at the candidate stage, and may or may not resemble final versions from each platform vendor.”
