Super Smash Bros Ultimate: How to use Taunt and what does it do?

Super Smash Bros Ultimate like previous Smash games allows you to Taunt your enemies, but how do you Taunt in Super Smash Bros Ultimate and what does it do? Find out in this guide below.

How to Taunt in Super Smash Bros Ultimate

Taunting in Smash is very easy, all you need to do is use the designated Taunts on the D-Pad. Each character will have three Taunts that you can access by holding the Left Trigger on your Joycon or Pro Controller and then pressing Up, Left/Right or Down. Do note Left and Right movements do a single Taunt.

As mentioned before each character will have their own taunts, so try experimenting to see which character’s taunts you find the most rage inducing for your enemies.

What do Taunts do in Super Smash Bros Ultimate

Unfortunately Taunts really don’t do anything in Smash games, they’re mostly for bragging rights. As a side tip do note that you can cancel them like any move, so Taunting is kind of usable in online matches as well to really punish your opponents, just make sure they’re not better at the game than you.

Super Smash Bros Ultimate is available now on the Switch. Did you get the game? What character’s Taunts will you be trying out first? Let us know in the comments below.
