Taunting is an important part of any multiplayer gameā€”and Smash Bros. is full of taunts. In fact, every character has a handful of taunts, all of which you can look at right here.

GameXplain has a compilation video of every Smash character's taunts, and it's definitely worth a watch. Be warned, however, that the video does include secret characters from the Japanese release of Smash. Watch at your own risk!

If you don't have seven minutes for this, however, that's OK. We've excerpted some of the best taunts in the game via GIFs. Obviously, these picks are going to be subjective, so don't feel bad if your favorite taunt is left out! And do note that many of the taunts in the new Smash Bros. have been featured in the game before, but some are in fact new.
