Limit your custom emotes to only be usable by certain roles.

Did you know Discord had the ability to make a custom emoji only available to certain roles? If you didn’t, that is because they don’t offer an easy way to use that function. Enter, Emoji Restrictor!


Here is what a user of your server may see on the Discord’s Emoji Picker:

many emotes

With the power of Emote Restrictor, another user may see this:

not so many emotes

Note that the other user has significantly less emotes? That’s what this bot can do.


Commands include add which allows a role to use the mentioned emojis and remove which removes the role from the whitelist again with the added bonus of query to get the roles allowed to use an emote.

Admins and the owner are not except from the restrictions. If you want to keep using the emotes you are restricting, add at least one of your roles to the list of allowed roles.

Command Examples:

In-chat-help is available with help and help <command>

Why we need the permissions we ask for

Trusting things can be hard, so here’s what we use the permissions for:

Do not grant this bot any other permissions. It isn’t needed and will only increase the attack surface if the bot ever gets compromised. Giving the bot additional permissions anyways may result in the bot refusing to work.
