[[superscript:Win up to '''1,000''' points!]]

''Kahoot!'' is an internet quiz game primarily used in classrooms and social settings. It was created in August 2013 in Norway. Users can create, play, and share their own quizzes with their friends.

''Kahoot!'' is typically played on a projector or a large screen in front of a room filled with people. When the game begins, each person[[note]]or team if Team Mode is enabled[[/note]] in the room uses their own device to join the lobby and set their nickname. When everyone is in the game, the host begins the quiz. Each question is timed with multiple-choice answers. The questions and choices are shown on the large screen, and players input their answers on their own devices by clicking on the corresponding shapes. When every player has given their answer, or the time is up, the correct answer is shown along with the amount of players who picked each answer. Players who answer correctly are awarded points, allowing them to travel up the leaderboard and beat other players.

In 2016, a mode was added called Jumble in which players put answers in the correct order rather than select just one answer. There are also the modes Survey and Discussion, which are designed for simply gathering opinions without any actual competition.

''Kahoot!'' can be found [[https://kahoot.com/ here]].

* BrokenWinLossStreak: Players can lose their answer streaks by picking the wrong answer.

* GettingCrapPastTheRadar: {{Defied| Trope}} in that hosts have the ability to kick out people who use innapropriate nicknames or prevent custom nicknames altogther.
* HolidayMode: ''Kahoot!'' will often go through different themes on holidays (such as Christmas and Halloween), or other special days (such as the anniversary of Creator/RoaldDahl's birthday). These events often include a themed remix for the lobby screen.
* InSeriesNickname: Players have the ability to use nicknames that are shown on the leaderboard and on other devices.
* InstrumentalThemeTune: The lobby theme only has computer instruments and no vocals.
* {{Leitmotif}}: ''Kahoot'' has three different leitmotifs that are remixed and modified throughout its soundtrack. According to the game's metadata, these leitmotifs are titled "Original", "Climbing", and "Groovy".
* MinisculeRocking: The game has various music tracks that play as ThinkMusic. The lengths of the music tracks match the time limits of the questions, so some of the music tracks are only 5 or 10 seconds long.
* NonIndicativeName: ''Kahoot!'' doesn't indicate anything about what the game is or how it's played.
* NoPlotNoProblem: The game doesn't have a "plot"; just answer quiz questions.
* NoTimeToThink: Some questions give playresss only five or ten seconds to answer. In some cases, this is only barely enough time to read the choices.
* NotTheIntendedUse:
** ''Kahoot!'' was originally intended to be used for education, but there are a lot of pop culture quizzes available on the website.
** Businesses have used ''Kahoot!'' to train their employees and promote their products, which has led to the creation of ''Kahoot!'' Pro and Plus, two business-oriented premium subscriptions.
* OneWordTitle: ''Kahoot!''.
* OnlyKnownByTheirNickname: Most players are only known by their nicknames in order to encourage anonymity.
* PlayingThePlayer: Answer order will be generated randomly unless specified otherwise. This prevents memorizing the quizzes by their answer placement and enhances the learning experience.
* PopQuiz: One type of quiz is the [[https://kahoot.com/blog/2015/10/28/art-blind-kahooting/ Blind Kahoot]], in which you're suddenly given a quiz on a concept you don't know about and haven't learned yet. As the quiz progresses, the concept is built upon and explained to make it easier to understand.
* {{Retraux}}: ''Kahoot!'' has a ghost mode that uses retro graphics along with a chiptune version of the soundtrack.
* SpeedRound: Several quizzes end with a question that lasts only five or ten seconds.
* TheNicknamer: ''Kahoot!'' itself can automatically give people nicknames if the setting is enabled.
* ThinkMusic: In each question, groovy music is played while the players decide on their answers.
* TickTockTune: The lobby theme and several other songs from the soundtrack use the sound of a clock ticking to encourage players to hurry up.
* TimedMission: Each question has a time limit of anywhere from five seconds to two minutes. Players who don't answer within the time limit receive no points.
* UnfortunateNames: Several players like to use inappropriate names on the website, but it is possible to kick people out who use these names or prevent custom nicknames altogether.
* UnstableEquilibrium: If the Answer Streak Bonus setting is enabled, players who get answer streaks will get bonus points, making them a lot more likely to win than players who don't go on streaks.
