PluralKit is a Discord bot designed for members of systems to be able to express themselves. It allows each member of the system to have a unique name and avatar, as headmates often share a single Discord account.

When this is done, a bot tag appears next to their name, because of the way Discord and webhooks work. This is called proxying.

History[edit | edit source]

During the year 2020, it grew from 15,000 servers to 82,000 servers, a growth rate of 540%.[3] It also went from 16,000 to 69,000 registered systems, and 166,000 to 919,000 members of those systems.
