An emo wolf is an image or a drawing of an imaginative and fantasy-like wolf. The style of the emo wolf follows the patterns of the emo meme, such as bright and neon colors, emo hairstyles with chops and fringes and other emotional expressions of the author.
The emo meme derives from the '80s emotional hardcore music style and its subgenres, such as emo-pop and emo-violence. Throughout the years, emo has become a meme by penetrating pop culture, fashion and social behavior, especially among teenagers. As of 2014, emo style among teenagers is a means of self-expression and fitting in.
