Fortnite Rarest Emotes (May 2023) – Rare Dances!

If everyone had it, it wouldn't be rare!

Dances and Emotes are some of the most recognizable things about Fortnite, but what about the rare ones? Kids all over the world emulate these moves, allowing the game to bleed into real life. There's been some controversy in the past, and Epic Games has experienced some lawsuits due to them, but those days seem to have gone now. If you're wondering what the rarest Emotes are in Fortnite, here's a list of the rarest Emotes in Fortnite!

Top 50 Rarest Emotes in Fortnite (Excluding Holiday 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 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!

This page is a day behind the item shop refresh. If you see anything on this list two days after appearing on the Item Shop, please leave a comment.

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.

  1. Roman candle and rocket spinner are 4th of july emotes, and the naruto emotes came back nearly 100 days ago, they were just sold in a bundle and not separately.

    1. Tweaked it. Thanks for letting me know Dark!

  2. Ramen break and summoning jutsu are only at 105 days so don’t belong on the list yet and roman candle and rocket spinner are both holiday emotes so don’t belong on the first list. Hope this helps.

    1. Thank you for letting me know!

  3. you should take raise the cup and out with the old since they are never coming back

  4. Distraction emote should be there not overdrive

    1. It’s been fixed!

  5. Theres a mistake, overdrive wasn’t suposed to be there, the correct would be either glyphic, pickin, flippin incredible or bobbin.

    1. It’s been fixed! Thanks for letting me know.

  6. Click just came back!!

  7. What happened to kiss the cup

    1. Bcoz it was limited time it was removed

    1. Fixed! Apologies for the slow response. I was off for the holidays!

  11. “Fancy Footwork” just returned.

  12. “Eureka” is back after 412 days

  13. Oh nvm yall took it off because it isnt returning lol

  14. I mean right behind crazy boy sorry my bad. It is supposed to be 10th place.

  15. Out with the old is supposed to be in 10th place right behind headbanger travis Scott emote. Its supposed to be in front of be seeing you and bullet proof.

  16. Isn’t slalom style supposed to be 50th and not fishin?

  17. Hi mark will be team space fixed it should be with prickly pose

    1. It’s fixed!

  18. Fishin came back 13 days ago

    1. Thanks. Updated!

  19. where’s “Hands off!” emote? it’s supposed to be with “Deal ’em out” emote because it’s of the same set

    1. Thank you for letting me know! It’s been fixed!

  20. Why isnt true heart on here? It was last seen 298 days ago

    1. True Heart is a holiday emote. We’ve removed all holiday emotes from the list.

      1. if holiday emotes aren’t supposed to be on the list why kiss kiss, true love and true heart are on the list

        1. Yeah I added that today! Hopefully make readers happier 😀

        2. my bad, i just realized you made 2 lists, one with holiday emotes and one with not

  21. Mark, Fishin’ is no longer rare, this re-released a little bit ago.

    1. It’s been fixed! We had a glitch, so anything over Nov didn’t get updated. So I have to do it all manually. So hence the problems with this page. It should be fixed, but let me know if you see anything else off!

  22. Cyberdyne salute returned

  23. Cyberdyne Salute is back

  24. The Emote: “Out With The Old” will never return too.
    Source: https://fortnite.fandom.com/wiki/Out_With_The_Old

    at the section:
    Trivia
    Its codename in the files involves the phrase “Good Riddance”
    This emote will never return because it is part of the “New Years 2021 Event”.

    hope its helps

    Sincerely, LKT

  25. hands off should be here

  26. Can SOMEONE explain why Zombie Shambles (last seen 736 days ago, only  appearing once) and Snow Day (last seen 681 days ago, only appearing 4 times) haven’t made it onto this list? I’m sorry if this seems rude, but I check this list so often and those emotes are so much rarer than some of these things 😭

    1. Hey Sage, not rude at all! Those are holiday emotes that only appear around certain times. So we’ve removed them as best we can from the list. I have an idea though!

  27. Mark i would take heart sign emote off since it’s free

  28. Where is Snow Day, Zombie Shambles, other rarer emotes? I can’t even believe chicken is on here 😭 the rares are really dwindling down

    1. The reason those are on there is because they are holiday emotes.

      1. They have not ever been in the shop with the Christmas and Halloween cosmetics and therefore should be on here

  29. Vibin’ should be on here? It was last seen 400+ days.

    1. Fixed!

  30. Mark vibin’ still isn’t on the list. 😟 it should be with get loose

    1. I know why. Let me fix it!
