Discord HypeSquad is more like an online community that is created for representing Discord and for generating hype for this communication platform. A Discord user who joins Discord HypeSquad is placed in any of these three houses: Balance, Bravery, and Brilliance.

Here are the types of Discord HypeSquad houses with their description:

  • House of Bravery: This house represents those members who are confident and have the potential to lead the group. Generally, Bravery is also considered one of the most important qualities for achieving success in life.
"The universe needs people to lead the charge with confident optimism and tenacity. Without the brave, the HypeSquad would descend into chaos."
  • House of Brilliance: Discord members present in the Brilliance house are quite patient and disciplined when it comes to selection.
"It takes patience and discipline to become a vital member of the universe. Without brilliance, the Hypesquad would descend into chaos."
  • House of Balance: These individuals have all of the major qualities, such as Peace, Brilliance, and Bravery, at the same time for balancing the universe.
"Harmony and poise are necessary to create equilibrium in the universe. Without Balance, the Hypesquad would descend into chaos."

Tiers of Hypesquad

There are generally 2 tiers of Hypesquad- the Online tier and the Event tier. Let's talk about each of them.

Online Tier

Discord HypeSquad uses a variety of social media channels to promote Discord, including Instagram, Facebook, and YouTube. You must organise online activities and events for Discord marketing. You can participate in internal challenges, get a HypeSquad badge, and receive a newsletter available only to HypeSquad members if you join the Online Tier.

Event Tier

The Event Tier consists of two roles: an event attendee and a HypeSquad event coordinator. Members of the Event Tier are in charge of conventions and offline events. Participants in offline events and conventions must be members of the Discord HypeSquad Event Attendee tier. You will also get access to the HypeSquad Event Server, t-shirts, and the Events Badge.

Perks of Hypesquad

  • Super Secret Newsletters: Discord often sends secret newsletters to Hypesquad members for events, contents, giveaways and many more.
  • Hype Profile Badge: Get a unique profile badge to rep the Hypesquad House you're sorted into. Get an exclusive HypeSquad badge for your profile and make all your friends jelly.
  • Squad Challenges: Get a chance to rep your house and participate in challenges against other Hypesquad houses.
  • Hypesquad Shirt: Get a shirt by helping Discord on events. You'll receive a HypeSquad t-shirt for your torso parts.
  • Secret Server: Event-related members gain access to the super secret HypeSquad Events Server.
  • Event Swag: If you are running events of your own, Discord's Hypesquad will supply you with a big ol' box of goodies.

Joining The Discord HypeSquad

To join Discord HypeSquad follow these steps:

  1. Open Discord and go to “User Settings” by clicking the gear icon in the bottom left.
  2. On the left hand side click on “HypeSquad”.
  3. Click the “Join HypeSquad” button.
  4. You will be given a simple, 5 question quiz.
  5. Once you complete the quiz you will be placed in a HypeSquad House according to your answers.
After taking the quiz you will see something like this. I got House of Balance for example.

The Requirements To Join Discord HypeSquad?

To join Discord Hypesquad you need to be at least 13 years old, have a Discord Account, and take a short quiz. If you want to be involved with some of the live events that Discords puts on with the HypeSquad then you will have to fill out a separate application at discord.com/hypesquad.

Hypesquad in Present

Now, you might be wondering : Is Hypesquad Events still a thing ? Well, sorry to be the bearer of bad news but NO. Hypesquad isn't coming back anytime soon.


This was tweeted in 2020 and its nearly 2023 and we still haven't recieved any news. You also can't apply for the Hypesquad Event as the applications have been paused.

There are two different things called hypesquad:

  • HypeSquad Houses (joinable via User Settings > Hypesquad)
  • HypeSquad Events (via discord.com/hypesquad, currently closed)

The first gets you the badge in your profile, the second is to physically represent Discord in in-person events (which, due to COVID, quite obviously can't occur, which is likely why the applications have been closed for like 2 years)

They have decided to make it so ANYONE on the Discord Platform can join the HypeSquad; and many of us previous HypeSquad Members disagree with this decision! We had to apply, and we tried our hardest to get accepted, so we want Discord to go back to the application process - stop giving it out to everyone!

Us previous HypeSquad Members LOVE the new update; but we do not agree that the removal of applications were a good move, and we'd like them back! Stop giving HypeSquad out on good will, and make people apply for it! Many people don't know what HypeSquad is, and do not deserve our exclusive badge! ~ Thxmas #3916

This was the petition given by Thxmas #3916 but still there hasn't been a very good response by the community.

Conclusion

As a community, all we really want is for the Hypesquad to resume as soon as possible.

Discord HypeSquad is a great way to network and meet other people who are passionate about Discord. If you love Discord then you should consider joining the HypeSquad and get HYPED!
