How to Make a Rock Fist Emoticon

Updated April 17, 2017

You make the rock fist, also known as the devil horns sign, by bending your middle two fingers to your palm with the tip of your thumb on top of the two bent fingers, while extending your pinky and forefinger like horns. You can make various text emoticons to suggest the rock fist, signifying that you're rocking out or that you enthusiastically approve of something. Some chat programs include a graphic rock fist emoticon you can access by typing the right text string or by merely clicking on the icon itself. Social networking sites and multiplayer online games may also feature a command to make a rock fist.

  6. Type \m/()\m/ or \m/(_o)\m/ for a starry-eyed fan making rock fists, or \m/@@\m/ for an entranced rock fan.

  7. Tip

    Some instant messenger programs have a roster of hidden emoticons that may include a rock fist emoticon; others, as well as some e-mail programs, offer a library of graphic emoticons you can merely click to select. When making the rock fist in real life, be sure to tuck in your thumb, placing the tip over the two bent fingers instead of sticking it out to the side. Otherwise you'll be giving the sign language gesture for "love."
