Discord Wiki

Badges are small images that display on user profiles and profile popups that distinguish a user as a member of specific groups. Some badges can be earned by purchasing Nitro or boosting a server, while others are exclusive or no longer obtainable. On a profile, badges appear in a hierarchical order, and multiple badges stack.

Common Badges

These badges can be obtained for free or through subscriptions.

This badge is awarded to any user who has an active Nitro subscription on their account. Upon hovering over the badge, the date in which the user started their subscription is displayed. Once the user's Nitro subscription has expired, the badge is removed.

  • Hypesquad bravery badge.png - HypeSquad Bravery House
  • Hypesquad brilliance badge.png - HypeSquad Brilliance House

Boosting icons.png Server Boosting

These badges are awarded to users who are actively using a Server Boost on a server. The badge that appears is dependent on how long the user has been continuously boosting a single server. The length required for each badge is as follows, in the same order as the image: 1 month, 2 months, 3 months, 6 months, 9 months, 12 months, 15 months, 18 months, and 24 months.

Server Crown Badge.pngOwner Crown

This badge appears in server's members list only, not on profile, and is awarded automatically to the user when they create the server. The intention of this badge is to help server members quickly identify who to reach out to if they need help. This is how to remove the badge.

  1. Go to Server Settings ->> Roles --> Create Role.
  2. Give your role a name, and adjust it if you'd like.
  3. Enable Display role members separately from online members.
  4. Go to Permissions, scroll all the way down and enable the Administrator permissions. Then, save your changes.
  5. Go to Members, find yourself, click +, and assign the role.

This will remove the crown.

Rare Badges

These badges are not common because they require lots of work to obtain or are only given to an exclusive group of users.
