How it is supposed to look How it is supposed to look.

How it looks How it looks.

I can see in mpv's log that it does call for Murga, the right font embedded in the mkv file, but it ends up falling back to BitstreamVeraSans-Roman.

[sub/ass] fontselect: (Murga, 400, 0) -> /usr/share/fonts/truetype/emoji/TwitterColorEmoji-SVGinOT.ttf, 0, TwitterColorEmojiSVGinOT
[sub/ass] Glyph 0x45 not found, selecting one more font for (Murga, 400, 0)
[sub/ass] fontselect: (Murga, 400, 0) -> /usr/share/fonts/truetype/ttf-bitstream-vera/Vera.ttf, 0, BitstreamVeraSans-Roman

Deleting /etc/fonts/fonts.conf seems to fix the issue, but I wonder if there's some kind of rule I could add to it to fix the issue. Here's the content of my fonts.conf:

<?xml version="1.0"?>
<!DOCTYPE fontconfig SYSTEM "fonts.dtd">
<!-- /etc/fonts/fonts.conf file to configure system font access -->
<fontconfig>

<!--
    DO NOT EDIT THIS FILE.
    IT WILL BE REPLACED WHEN FONTCONFIG IS UPDATED.
    LOCAL CHANGES BELONG IN 'local.conf'.

    The intent of this standard configuration file is to be adequate for
    most environments.  If you have a reasonably normal environment and
    have found problems with this configuration, they are probably
    things that others will also want fixed.  Please submit any
    problems to the fontconfig bugzilla system located at fontconfig.org

    Note that the normal 'make install' procedure for fontconfig is to
    replace any existing fonts.conf file with the new version.  Place
    any local customizations in local.conf which this file references.

Turns out this was caused by https://github.com/eosrei/twemoji-color-font, specifically the following block from the file $HOME/.config/fontconfig/conf.d/56-twemoji-color.conf:

  <match target="pattern">
    <!-- If the requested font is sans-serif -->
    <test qual="any" name="family">
        <string>sans-serif</string>
    </test>
    <!-- Make Bitstream Vera Sans the first result -->
    <edit name="family" mode="prepend_first">
      <string>Bitstream Vera Sans</string>
    </edit>
    <!-- Followed by Twitter Color Emoji -->
    <edit name="family" mode="prepend_first">
      <string>Twitter Color Emoji</string>
    </edit>
  </match>

The same block is present in /etc/fonts/conf.d/56-twemoji-color.conf.
