Sonic Taunt.jpg

The Taunt is a move that is designed to annoy and mock opponents or to celebrate a good move or combo. Before Brawl, there use to only be one taunt per character, but in Brawl, characters would have three different taunts that they could use. In Super Smash Bros., the player can perform a taunt by pressing the L button, in Super Smash Bros. Melee, it would be the up on the Directional-Pad. And in Super Smash Bros. Brawl, it will be the direction that one presses on the D-Pad or buttons on Wii Remote. So far in the series, only Luigi and Snake have taunts that do damage.

In Melee, when Pichu and Captain Falcon use their taunts, they can have two different animations that depend on which side they are facing. Wario will also have an extra taunt when he is on his bike. Each character will have their own different taunts and each taunt will have the character doing a motion and they also may speak or yell out a battle cry.

Marth is the only character that will speak Japanese in their taunts in the English version. Some "speaking" taunts will change between languages like Jigglypuff.
