Can You Change Discord Avatar Per Server?


Larry Thompson

Discord is a popular communication platform used by gamers, communities, and businesses alike. One of the key features of Discord is the ability to customize your profile, including your avatar.

But can you change your Discord avatar per server? Let’s explore this question in detail.

Understanding Discord Avatars

Firstly, let’s understand what a Discord avatar is. An avatar is a visual representation of yourself or your brand on the platform. It can be an image or a logo that appears next to your username in chat messages, voice calls, and more.

By default, when you create a Discord account, you are assigned a profile picture known as the “global” avatar. This global avatar is visible across all servers and cannot be changed on a per-server basis.

The Limitations

Discord does not provide a built-in feature to change your avatar per server. This means that whatever image you set as your global avatar will be displayed in every server you join or create.

The Workaround

While changing avatars per server is not directly supported by Discord, there is still a workaround to make it happen. The trick involves creating or joining a specific type of server called “Nitro Server”.

Nitro Servers are premium servers available to users who have an active Discord Nitro subscription. These servers offer perks like animated avatars, custom emojis, and the ability to change avatars on a per-server basis.

  • To create a Nitro Server:
    1. Click on the “+” icon on the left sidebar in Discord.
    2. Select “Create My Own” under “Nitro Server”.
    3. Follow the prompts to create your server and set a unique avatar for it.
  • To join a Nitro Server:
    1. Find a Nitro Server invite link shared by someone.
    2. Click on the link and follow the prompts to join the server.
    3. Once joined, you can change your avatar specifically for that server.


While the workaround allows you to have different avatars per Nitro Server, it’s important to note that not everyone has a Discord Nitro subscription. Therefore, most servers will still see your global avatar.

In addition, changing avatars frequently can be confusing for other users who are familiar with your global avatar. It’s best to use this feature sparingly and consider the impact on your community or brand image.


In summary, Discord does not natively support changing avatars per server. However, by creating or joining a Nitro Server, users with an active Discord Nitro subscription can enjoy the ability to set different avatars for each specific server.

Remember to use this feature responsibly and consider its impact on others in your community. Happy avatar customization!
