Fortnite Rarest Emotes (June 2021) – Rare Dances!

Dance and emotes are some of the most recognizable things about Fortnite these days. You'll find kids all over the place emulating these moves, which have made them an iconic part of the game. There's been some controversy in the past where Epic has experienced some lawsuits over them, but those days seem to have gone now. If you're wondering what the rarest Emotes are in Fortnite then we'll be digging into that topic in this post!

Season 2 Battle Pass Emotes

The rarest emotes in the game are very likely going to be the ones that came out in the Season 2 Battle Pass. The game had not blown up by then and players were still even getting used to the idea of purchasing a season pass like this. So, the majority of these dances and emotes are going to be owned by very few players. Floss, due to it being the latest in the pass, is probably going to be the rarest emote in the game!

Ride the Pony that used to be apart of the Season 2 battle pass has been given out to players that purchase Save the World. People who owned it from the battle pass were given the Pony Up emote as a reward. That makes Pony Up the rarer emote than Ride the Pony!

Top 50 Rarest Emotes

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 really just the best method to at least put some logic behind figuring out which dance is the rarest. There's no official numbers released on purchases when it comes to cosmetics, so any list is just going to be compiled purely on speculation and anecdotal evidence. You will notice a theme with the majority of these, which is they are all rated fairly low. That's a good indicator to why you haven't seen them in the shop that often. Epic very likely only places cosmetics into the Item Shop often if they sell well. Items that don't sell well very rarely return to the shop!

Holiday dances have been excluded from the list, because they pretty much always return on their designated holiday.

About the Author

Hey, my name is Mark, and I'm a video game enthusiast! My earliest memory was playing Worms on the Amiga against my Godmother, yes the Amiga, massive box type thing, needed eighty-five thousand floppy disks to play one game, maybe a slight exaggeration. Ah, those were the days! I love RPG’s, and The Legend of Zelda series. Dogs are pretty awesome.

    1. Yah same😂

  13. Is red card dance rare 🤔
    Last seen near to 200 days and I own it

  14. I REFUNDED THE RAREST EMOTE 😔 but at least I have the 4th

    1. bruh, the rarest emote is fresh ranbouncios is kinda rare but fresh is the rarest. so yeah its nothing to worry about

  15. I have pumpernickel but I thought it would hit the 400 day mark, and I have crazy feet but hated they changed the music and now its just too loud, I also have the marshmallow skin and marsh walk, and I think the icon series and marvel emotes are kinda promotional stuff for what the company’s are doing, not really fortnite making there own emotes, just got it from meme culture or a movie, and how come they can’t bring back fresh? I thought they won the case…..

  16. I have 10 through 16

  17. what about hot marat? it’s well over 500 days since it’s last release

    1. That was a promotional emote.

  18. forgot unwrapped emote, uncommon emote came out december 25, 2018. goes in between tidy and zany.

    1. It’s a Christmas emote, holiday emotes aren’t included.

      1. how come?

        1. Because they show up every year, there’s no real reason to include them.

  19. Lol I have the top 8 rarest emotes! (and a lot more of them)

    1. Bruh, I don’t even really play and I have all of them!

  20. Ride the pony needs to be the pony-up emote because the og ride the pony emote was given to founders in season 10 and was no longer rare then. Og owners got the pony-up dance.

    1. Fixed now, thanks.

      1. Totally forgot the biggest rarest ones
        Take the elf
        ,take the L ,
        mime time …….

        1. Take the elf is a holiday emote and was part of a challenge, Take the L is a Battle Pass emote, Mime Time is on the list already… At least take the time to check things out before commenting. It took me 30 seconds to verify this stuff.

          1. I agree with evident

          2. well they have other battle pass emotes on this list too, so maybe check your own self first. OKAY?!?!

          3. Which are you referring to?
