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.
