Known matches:

Key Matched
🀣 🀝
πŸ™ƒ πŸ™‚
❀️ ❣️
🐸 🐷
🐍 🐌
πŸ€” 🀎
πŸš€ πŸ™
πŸ“ πŸ’
πŸ‘† πŸ‘…
🐟 🐞
πŸ˜₯ 😀

What is my match, if I am πŸ”?

Hint, since I don't believe in torture

the solution is based on the emojis' encoding - not on their meaning.

    $\begingroup$ I reckon the hint was unnecessary, I would go the hinted way anyway :) $\endgroup$ May 26 at 15:00

If the key is πŸ” (unicode U+1F354), then the match should be

The strawberry emoji πŸ“ (unicode U+1F353)

Explanation:

For most of the key-match pairs, the match's unicode value is 1 less than the key's unicode value, in hexadecimal.
key πŸ™ƒ (U+1F643), match πŸ™‚ (U+1F642)
key ❀️ (U+2764), match ❣️ (U+2763)
key 🐸 (U+1F438), match 🐷 (U+1F437)
key 🐍 (U+1F40D), match 🐌 (U+1F40C)
key πŸ“ (U+1F353), match πŸ’ (U+1F352)
key πŸ‘† (U+1F446), match πŸ‘… (U+1F445)
key 🐟 (U+1F41F), match 🐞 (U+1F41E)
key πŸ˜₯ (U+1F625), match 😀 (U+1F624)

There are a few exceptions, but I could find no other pattern. Maybe these are mistakes, or are mixed up due to localization issues.
key 🀣 (U+1F923), match 🀝 (U+1F91D)
key πŸ€” (U+1F914), match 🀎 (U+1F90E)
key πŸš€ (U+1F680), match πŸ™ (U+1F64F)

    $\begingroup$ This was my first guess as well... would be disappointing if a puzzle based on the encoding of the emojis had the wrong encoding for three of them, though. $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ So this is correct even though it's not correct for some? That's where I got stuck as well. What am I missing with the math? $\endgroup$
