Smileys are the controllable avatars of all players in Everybody Edits. There are many ways of obtaining a smiley, though most can be bought from the Shop. Users with Gold Membership are able to toggle a gold border around their smiley.
Players can control their smiley with either the arrow keys or WASD and pressing space to jump. Players can switch between their owned smileys during gameplay at any time. The only smiley with a unique function when worn is Bruce, which allows the player to obtain the hidden Bruce NPC through magic when worn. Aside from this, the differences between smileys are only cosmetic—some smileys change the player's color on a minimap. These include Ninja, Robber, and Spy which appear very transparent, and Police which appears rich blue.
Guests and newly registered accounts have 36 smileys to select from, though more can be gotten through various means. Most can be purchased from the Energy Shop using energy, while some holiday or seasonal smileys can be bought through the Classic Shop
Some smileys can be recieved while actively playing the game. The Witch, and several wizard-based smileys only come from magic. Several smileys are rewards for completing campaign worlds, which is currently the only way to get the Grinch, Penguin, Eyeball, Purple Ghost, and Devil Skull smileys.
