Dances and emotes are some of the most recognizable features in Fortnite, but what about the rare ones? Kids all over the world emulate these moves, allowing the game to bleed into real life. If you're wondering what the rarest Emotes are in Fortnite, here's a list of them all!
Top 50 Rarest Emotes in Fortnite (Excluding Holiday Emotes)
There is no greater joy in Fortnite than emoting on a player right after you've eliminated them. This becomes much more entertaining in trios and squad modes, as you can carry downed opponents to a safe location and emote near them. Iconic emotes like Laugh it Up, Mwahaha, Get Griddy, and Ninja Style are some of the most popular emotes players use after eliminating opponents. If you have any of these rare emotes in the locker, equip them before heading into a match.
Here's our list of the top 50 rarest Emotes in the game based on the last time they were seen in the item shop. This is just the best method to at least put some logic behind figuring out which dance is the rarest. No official numbers are released on cosmetics purchases, so that any list will be compiled purely on speculation and anecdotal evidence. You will notice a theme with most of these: they are all rated relatively low. That's a good indicator of why you haven't seen them in the shop that often. Epic often places cosmetics into the Item Shop if they sell well. Items that don't sell well rarely return to the shop!

Top 50 Rarest Emotes in Fortnite (Including Holidays Emotes)
The rarest Fortnite emotes are fickle, especially when you consider holiday emotes that only appear at certain times of the year. Yet some of these Holiday emotes don't appear as often as one may have thought. In this list, next to nothing is excluded, apart from things that will never return to the item shop.
