Is there a time of year that is better represented using emojis than Halloween?

Saving you the time of scrolling through your emoji keyboard to find the best spooky emojis, I hereby present the best emojis for Halloween:

😨 😰 😱 🤡 😈 👿 👹 👺 💀 ☠️ 👻 👽 👾 🤖 🧙‍ 🧚‍ 🧛‍ 🧜‍ 🧝‍ 🧞‍ 🧟‍ 🕴 💚 🖤 🦄 🦇 🦉 🕷 🕸 🥀 🍫 🍬 🍭 🏚 🌃 🛸 🌕 🌚 🌩 ⚡️ 🎃 🔮 🎭 🕯 🗡 ⛓ ⚰️ ⚱️

Some are the typical fare you expect at Halloween — a spider, ghost, jack-o-lantern), and others make  - particularly from the fantasy set released in 2017 - make great costumes (zombie, vampire, clown).

As always, keep in mind each emoji does look different across various platforms. The gap isn't as wide as it once was, but the clown and zombie in particular do have quite a range in their designs.

Names of the various Halloween emojis are listed below which can be useful as some may not be all that obvious at first glance (I'm looking at you, Funeral Urn).

While all devices have emoji input options these days (emoji keyboards on mobile devices, emoji picker or other UIs on desktop), another option if you can't find what you're looking for is to copy and paste from Emojipedia directly.
