Akin to all other social media platforms, Discord allows you to personalize your profile pictures however you prefer. You can use your picture, anime, game or movie characters, or any other avatar that reflects your current mood or interests.

Changing Profile Picture on Discord
Profile pictures are your visual representation, your identification essentially. While the profile name is significant, the problem is that many people can have a similar name. So, your profile picture allows others to distinguish you from people with similar names.
Since Discord is not essentially a photo or video-sharing platform like Instagram or Facebook, as it is a chatting platform, your profile picture is only where you can reflect your persona and vibe. You can personalize your profile to make yourself recognizable to your friends and reflect your current moods and interests.
You can use your pictures or other fun stuff as your profile pictures, as there is no limit by Discord. You can use exciting avatars that reflect your current mood or interests, like memes, anime, cartoon or video game characters, movie or TV show characters, or whatever causes you to believe. Your profile picture can tell much more about your personality and interests than you can imagine.
Besides, Discord has a built-in editor to adjust your image to its dimension requirements. So, no need to keep it boring or dull in this section of Discord. Play around as much as you like and change as often as your whims.
Your profile picture must not violate the terms of service of Discord.
