E.g. ‘Oi you in the blue pants, 1v1 me’.

Roblox has a 13+ age requirement, so if someone is suspected of being underaged, variations of this number are used to point it out to make that player leave. Also used to imply or state that someone is acting childish. 

E.g. ‘13, kid’.

 ;-; 

An emoji that represents somebody crying.
