Discord allows each server to have up to 50 custom emojis. Anyone with the “Manage Emoji” permission, as well as the server’s owner, can upload custom emojis to a server. In addition, if someone is a Nitro or Nitro Basic subscriber, they can upload 50 additional emojis to a server, including animated emojis.

It’s possible that a user may want to remove custom emojis from a server they manage. Our guide will show you how to remove a custom emoji from a server from within the Discord desktop application.
