Unicode 15.0

Hey, we've got some cool updates for you again! First off, we're now using Unicode 15.0 emojis instead of 13.0, which means we've got a bunch of new emojis, and you can create even more fun puzzles now. And don't worry if your computer or phone doesn't support Unicode 15, because you'll still get emojis from an earlier standard that work perfectly fine. However, most phones should have no trouble handling the new Unicode 15 emojis. πŸ˜„πŸŽ‰

Index numbers

Secondly, solving becomes a bit easier when a rule isn't crystal clear. Take this little brain teaser, for instance:


Look here, an otter emoji. We need to swap out a "t," and that tiny number tells us which "t" in "otter" to switch to get the solution "other."

We added language support for Polish after our language survey showed that it was the most requested language! The survey is still open, so feel free to add any language you'd like to see supported here.

February 4th, 2023

We got quite a number of requests for supporting new languages and started adding some of them: Norwegian, Portuguese and Turkish are now available. If you like other languages to be added as well, tell us here, and we'll see what we can do.

15 years ago today we started this Rebus site. As far as we know it was the first online rebus generator, now there are many πŸ˜€. To celebrate our 15th anniversary, we have two exciting pieces of news:

  • Better results for long words: We dig even deeper to find the perfect images, and it's still super fast!
  • No more annoying ads! Maybe it will come back later, but is ad-free for the time being πŸŽ‰!!!

Today we have a special update: use the position of the characters in relation to each other. Sounds complicated, but is relatively easy. Take a look at the following example where characters are on top of each other, or inside each other:

C / C
N / G

The word here is "C on C er N in G", concerning. Another nice example is Constantinople.

Does this work with all character combinations, you might ask? No, training was done on the complete works of Shakespeare, so if he didn't write a word containing "XonY" we won't write it as a "X on Y rebus" either.

You now can easily post your rebus to Facebook. Create your rebus and there will be a share button just below the created rebus. Sounds good.

November 21th, 2020

We now can make rebuses in 3 additional languages: Two West Slavic languages ​​(Czech and Slovak), and a South Slavic language (Slovenian) have been added.

November 12th, 2019

Many users asked about how to get the rebus on paper or copy-paste it in another document. Starting from today this is now super easy as there will be a download link below the rebus. There are no copyrights whatsoever, so you can do with the rebus whatever you want!
