The main symbol/emote of Twitch.tv. It represents sarcasm, irony, puns, jokes, and trolls alike. If you see this term used outside of Twitch.tv, then this is not the correct definition. Usually used at the end of an ironic or sarcastic sentence. Sentences that contain a Kappa should not be taken seriously. If you search "Kappa Twitch.tv" in Google you can see what the emote looks like, and why it is used as it is. Sentences that use Kappa do not always have to make sense.
You hold the speedrun world record of this game, but I bet you'll die on level 1, Kappa.

A Japanese water spirit. It looks like a human/duck/turtle type of thing. They live in ponds and rivers and drag people in and drown them. They also pull your intestines out through your behind. A Kappa has a dent in it's head that is full of water, this allows it to go out on land. Also, Kappas are very polite. If you come a across a Kappa all you have to do is bow to it, the Kappa will have to bow back spilling the water on it's head and leaving it powerless. Kappas also love cucumbers, toss a cucumber into the water were a Kappa lives and it will not harm you.
People also portray Kappas as being very cute and innocent looking. These versions of Kappas are indeed irresistibly adorable, they make me want to squeeze their little Kappa heads off!
And yes, I am aware there is also the Kappa Kappa Gamma sorority who think they're so elite because they've been around for so long. Well the REAL Kappas have been around since ancient times, drowning you and feasting on your soul!


Me: Omg! Lookit the ickle Kappa!!! Ah, wait! Omg no, not the colon!!!! *Tosses cucumber*

Sorority chick on Urban Dictionary: Omg! This definition says a Kappa is a Japanese duck thinger! Omg they're dishonoring our almighty elite-ness! *Gives thumbs down to definition*

Kappa is short for KAPPA KAPPA GAMMA. One of the largest most prestigious national fraternities (the term 'sorority' was not even coined yet when we were born) in the country.

Kappa is NOT some stupid asian sorority that came along over 125 years after the REAL "KAPPA" was born (and only has members in asian towns like NYC and L.A.).

Second, when your everyday American uses the term, they are ALWAYS referring to Kappa Kappa Gamma. Just see the jokes made on Sex & The City (Charlotte), Friends (Rachel "Kappa Kappa Delta-changed word" I was a kappa -- hey sisters, we really are snobs!" and movie "Hello Again" for example. Ashley Judd, Jane Pauley, i can go on and on. They are all KAPPAs.

If you want proof, KAPPA KAPPA GAMMA is the organization that pulls up when you type in www.kappa.org

We existed since 1870. Shut it.
"Damn, she got a bid to Kappa?!?"
v. The act of putting something on your father's credit card or having your daddy pay for something.

*Reference to the women of Kappa Kappa Gamma
Dude don't worry about buying that polo, I'll just kappa it.
