There are many different types of emoticons used on the web and in other types of technologies, such as e-mail and instant messaging. Some of these are represented with text characters. Others require visual icon files or even animated GIFs.

The evil wicked grin is an example of a complex emoticon where the two signifiers, 'evil’ and 'wicked,’ emphasize one another.
