What does Gyat mean?

A way to show surprise

Gyat is a popular slang term used mainly by the younger generation, particularly Gen Z, on social media platforms like TikTok and Twitter and while gaming, especially during live streams. It’s a way to express surprise or shock. Sometimes, it’s also combined with words like “d***” or “dayum” (a modified version of “d***”).

This slang started to gain popularity in 2021 when it was frequently used by gamers, who go by the names Dosllee and YourRAGE, during their live streams. They usually dropped the term gyat whenever a woman with a curvy figure appeared in the chat or stream.

Gyat can be used in a variety of situations to express surprise or shock. For instance, one might tweet “Gyat!” as a reaction to a shocking video on Twitter. Similarly, people might leave a “Gyat” comment on a dance video on TikTok that they find impressive or mind-blowing.
