Boo! A white, cartoon ghost making a silly face. Its tongue is stuck out and arms are outstretched, as if trying to scare someone in a friendly way. Several platforms feature one larger, bulging eye.
Resembles a classic ghost costume for Halloween. May also be used to convey something or someone is fun or goofy. Thanks to its raised arms, some use this emoji as a way of expressing an excited Yay!
Samsung's design previously depicted this as a smiley in a ghost costume.
