In our previous article Best Fortnite Skins we discovered some of the rarest Fortnite skins currently available. But what are the Best Fortnite Dances and Emotes, we have ranked the top 15 greatest ones!
The battle royale game have become famous because of its creative and memorable dances and emotes. Often with inspiration from real-world examples like tv-series, social media or professional dancers all over the world.
Let’s have a look at the top 15 best dances and emotes in Fortnite Battle Royale!
15. Infinite Dab
If you’ve never seen some do a ‘dab’ before, this dance is probably not making any sense at all for you. This particular gesture is an infinity loop of dab’s from side to side, and that is pretty much it. This emote is quite commonly seen in-game, and presumably, one of the most bought one.
Now we are looking at something more considered a dance, but not quite there. The dance itself is rather silly and perfect to swing out as you down an enemy, the music and the dance moves are in a cool sync. The Zany emote was released back in May 2018 and have been seen in the item shop several times since.
13. Groove Jam
Finally, some dance moves right? A movie called Napoleon Dynamite inspires this groovy dance which is quite cool to see when compared to each other. The dance itself was released during the battle pass of season 4 and is sadly no longer obtainable unless you got it during that era. The music on thie emote is very funky!
Another emote of the style where one movement loops infinitely. This time a wigglin’ movement that is quite hilarious when seen for the first time, it has a cool hip-hop beat that makes this extra weird, as they have nothing in common. Remember, never stop wiggle!
11. Disco Fever
The Disco Fever emote is part of the Fortnite fever set, and is excellent for bringing out an enjoyable disco dance on the field. The dance is inspired from the 70’s movie “Saturday Night Fever” with John Travolta. The music is also very influenced by the disco era, and it’s hard not to use the replay button on this one!
10. Swipe It
This might not be the most impressive dance, but together with the music and the Drift skin, the theme is perfect. The emote is a looping dance with a futuristic trap beat, cool to bring out in the lobby to get some well-deserved attention. The emote was released during season 5 and is not long obtainable.
9. The Worm
We all know the worm, the coolest move you could ever do during childhood. But did you know it was in Fortnite as well? This emote is one of the OG’s when it comes to dances, released all the way back in season 2. Making it one of the rarest fortnite emotes, bring out this dance as the perfect taunt or mocking move to your opponents!
When you see this epic dance, you will instantly notice its origin. Which is ‘The Fresh Prince of Bel-air’ hence the name Fresh. The emote is a classic, well-known and loved dance from the character Carlton, also called the “The Carlton Dance“. The music is very cheerful and fits perfectly with this emote.
7. Take The L
Do you want to make fun of your opponents or really make sure they got that they were defeated by you? Then this emote is literally created for this purpose. The name stands for “Take the Loss” and is there to tell your opponents just that, without saying a single word. It is a funny emote that also has a second variation of it, the emote “Hand Signals” use parts of the L-sign and often referred to as “Mini Take The L emote”.
6. Dance Moves
We think every Fortnite player know this dance, as it’s a default dance. Meaning that every player account has this emote straight from the start. However, it’s one of the most iconic and old-school emotes currently available. The dance is based on the character Turk from the tv-series ‘Scrubs’ making it instantly famous as soon as it hit the game. It might be heavily over-used by now, and you probably can’t stand it anymore, but it’s still one of the best fortnite dances ever released.
5. Llama Bell
Clang! Clang! Clang! The sound of a cowbell makes everything better right? This unique emote beats its cowbell in sync with the music, making it dance and an instrument emote at the same time. The music gets actually quite catchy with the cowbell, poor llama though!
4. Best Mates
Best Mates released back in season 3 is really an iconic Fortnite dance. What makes it perfect is the music with the goofy dance move, making even the most horrifying character silly and friendly. The gesture really symbolizes a dance only best friends could do. However, the emote is unfortunately no longer obtainable.
3. Electro Shuffle
Electro Shuffle is a familiar emote for Fortnite fans, influenced by this dancer from Youtube. It’s a fast-paced dance called, shuffle. It’s one of the most popular emotes in Fortnite and have been seen in the item shops almost every month since its release in January 2018. Many players placed this as the best dance in Fortnite, but there is actually two other emotes that has gotten even more attention than this one.
2. Orange Justice
This emote is from a contest called the ‘BoogieDown contest’, where Fortnite fans could submit their own dances. The first price was that your dance could be added to the game. A kid with an orange shirt submitted this dance and didn’t win the contest. However, the Fortnite community did not accept this. A major petition started with thousands of people signing, and several Youtube profiles like PewDiePie featured it. It later became a emote, and the kid with the orange shirt finally got justice, therefore the name ‘Orange Justice’. A fun story that got significant media coverage, making it one of the most well-known emotes there is.
The most popular Fortnite emote ever is the Floss emote, famous all over the world and performed by everyone from celebrities, social media influencers, dancers and fans. The floss dance became literally viral overnight after the infamous ‘Backpack kid’ performed the move on a Katy Perry performance during the ‘SNL’ season finale. It later got added into Fortnite as the “Floss” emote, and got associated with the game as every player was doing it, in-game, in real life, at work, at school. The emote was released during Season 2 and is no longer obtainable, many fans wish it would be put upon the item store, but that will probably never happen. As it was released so early and becoming so famous, we place this as the Best Fortnite Dance and maybe even the rarest amonst them all.
