How to Dance and Use Emotes in League of Legends?

I love it when a game allows me to use emotes and dance around. Emotes are a great way to express how you feel in the game, and each champion has their very own emote that they can use. If you’re not sure which emote you should buy, check out our 10 best emotes in LoL list


If you’re interested in using emotes on your champion (I’m sure you are), you can go to the store within your client and purchase them for a total of 350 RP a piece. During the initial launch, Riot Games have put emotes on sale for 350 RP, when you would originally have to pay 450 RP. Ever since patch 8.12 was released, each emote was lowered from 450 RP to 350 RP permanently, which was a plus. 

Note: Each player received the Thumbs Up emote free of charge on their account. 

How to equip and use emotes?

When you get the emote, we know you’re excited to start using it right away. In order to equip it, you can do so in the Champion Select or Collection area. The loadout will include a radial that is capable of holding up to a total of five emotes – there are also slots for First Blood, Start Game, Win, and Ace. 

Once you have League of Legends loaded up, you will be able to access the pop-up radial by using the assigned hotkey. 

You can only trigger a specific number of Emotes, including the Champion Mastery emotes, within a short space of time before you have to wait to use another one. You can still trigger Champion Mastery by using its own hotkey.

Muting Enemy Emotes

There are times when those enemy emotes can really get to a player and stress them out. This is purposely done because there are people that get tilted by enemy emotes being spammed, which causes them to get off their game (it’s a poor tactic). If you’re the type of person that gets tilted by enemies spamming emotes, then we recommend muting them.  

While there aren’t very many players on League of Legends that actually spam those emotes or maliciously use them, they may toss them out there after a bad play or when the enemy team has outplayed you. When you first see an emote, your first reaction may be to lash out, but if you never see them pop up, you’re not going to get tilted (what you don’t know isn’t going to hurt you).

Here’s how to disable those enemy emotes:

Go into your settings. From there, click on the interface settings and then scroll down until you find “emotes.” Click on “mute enemy emotes.”

Again, it is a good idea to disable or remove those things that can trigger you and make you upset because it is important to reduce the toxicity in League of Legends so that you can enjoy your time playing the game.

Professional Players Use Emotes

The @Zven G2 flair emote when he got a triple kill had layers. The emote is from EU LCS 2017 – when @Zven beat @MisfitsGG in the Summer Split finals to get 1st seed. Zven was on G2, MSF were a team.

Allowing professional League of Legends players to use emotes in the game allows them to stunt on their opponents. A pengu or a quick flash of a bee after a big play is a great way to send a message to your opponent. 

Here’s an example of this – it took place during the LCS finals, Zven constantly spammed Misfits, and G2 emotes at Ignar. If you’re family with Ignar’s history, you know exactly what this means. Not only does this help send a message to the enemy, but it also sends one out to the viewers.

Emotes Make the Game Feel More Interactive

We feel that when a game has emotes in it, it makes the game feel more interactive. By their very nature, emotes are excellent at conveying emotion. In the past, we could assume that when someone is spamming dance or laughing over the body of a dead champion after a solo kill, it meant the player was feeling the hype.

Today, with the help of emotes, we can give a more precise idea of what we’re feeling while we’re playing LoL. Emotes are also a great way to share your inner feelings and communicate with other players. There are two famous emotes – “start” and “victory.”

Your champion has Jokes and Can Really Break it Down

That’s right, your champion (regardless of the champion you choose) has some laugh-worthy jokes and can dance up a storm like never before. Along with this, they know how to hold their ground with those taunts. Some even have a toggle, making it so that players around you can see and hear your champion. You can cancel emotes without any consequences, meaning once you start an emote, you’re not forced to finish the animation like in some other games. 

There are a couple of ways to activate them – you can either type in /Taunt, /Joke, /Laugh, and /Toggle followed by the Enter key in chat, or you can use their hotkeys. The default hotkeys are CTRL+1, CTRL+2, CTRL+3, CTRL+4, CTRL+5.

  • Kai’Sa: Using her Toggle, you can toggle the presence of her helmet. 
  • Aatrox: With his Toggle, you can toggle the presence of his banner wings. 
  • Pyke: Using his Toggle, you can change the appearance of his dagger. 
  • Zoe: By using her Toggle, you can toggle between numerous walk cycles. Throughout the match, she will automatically cycle between these. 
  • Samira: Using her Toggle, she can cast her Taunt ability.

Skin Specific

There are also skin-specific dances and emotes. Check these out:

  • DJ Sona – There are three forms she can toggle between. 
  • Night Hunter Rengar – Using Taunt, you can toggle his hood up and down, which will replace the Taunt of his other skins.  
  • Neon Strike Vi – You can toggle her shades up and down by using Taunt – this is going to replace the taunts of her other skins. 
  • Spirit Blossom Thresh – By using his Toggle, you can toggle between human and demon form after you have collected a total of 45 souls. 

Frequently Asked Questions about Emotes

Can emotes be gifted to friends?

Unfortunately, right now, emotes cannot be gifted, but we’re hopeful that this will be a feature in the future. 

Are any old emotes coming back?

Not right away, but Riot Games is always looking for reasons to bring old emotes back. However, they don’t plan on bringing any Esports emotes back. 

Can you get emotes from Hextech chests?

Yes, you can.

When I mute emotes, will it also mute the champion mastery emote?

Yes, it will also mute the champion mastery emote since they are a part of the emotes system.

My emotes don’t work after I used a couple. Why is this?

If emotes are overused, they will go on cooldown, or if your emote has been interrupted after you took damage. Also, emotes don’t work on the Practice Tool or in custom matches. 


Emotes, dancing, and taunting (any cute way you can interact) are always fun in League of Legends. There was a point in time when players were under the impression that emoting could be heard even if the individual was in a brush, but this isn’t true. What about you? Do you have a favorite emote or dance in League of Legends?

Tips and Tricks

Beginner Guides

League of Legends is a competitive online game that can be enjoyed by people of all ages. One of the most popular features of the game is its dance emotes. These emotes allow players to express themselves in a fun and unique way. In this how-to guide, we will teach you how to dance in League of Legends to amuse your friends and taunt the enemy team!

When you dance in League of Legends, it means that you are confident in your abilities and that you think you can win the match. It is also a way to have fun and show your personality. What each champion does when they dance is tied to what champion and what skin for that champion you have selected.

Special skins, such as Dark Cosmic Lux featured below, will begin cool animations, such as slashing through planets or dancing to a boom box that just appeared. If you want to find some awesome dance moves on your favorite champion skin, check out our best Lux skins guide.

There are two ways to dance in League of Legends. The first is to use the /dance emote. This emote can be used at any time and will cause your character to perform a short dance or other animation. The second way to dance is to use the /d command (which is just a short-hand for /dance). This

Binding the Dance Emote to a Mouse Button or Keypress for Rapid-Fire Dance Moves

If you want to spam your dance moves as a taunt, you'll need to bind your dance emote in League of Legends to a specific key or mouse press. By default, your dance move is bound to "Ctrl + 3". If you want to move that to another keybind, open up your menu either in-game or from the launcher and go to "Hotkeys."

From "Hotkeys," scroll down to "Communication." Under "Communication," you will see "Dance." Clicking in either the center or right columns will allow you to set one or two key or mouse bindings for your dance moves in League of Legends.

Wrapping Up Our Brief Guide on How to Dance in LoL

That's it. There are two ways you can dance in League of Legends. You can either directly issue the command via the chat with "/d" or "/dance." Or, alternatively, you can bind it to a keypress or mouse button press.

Either of these ways works just as well. Although, if you want to spam the key in sight of any enemy, it's better to bind to an easy to press key just in case you need to retreat or engage quickly. We hope this guide helped and that you have fun dancing in your future games! As always, feel free to drop any questions you might have in the comments below. Good luck, Summoners!

League of Legends - Chat commands and hotkeys :: Job or Game

normal attack. The key is practically not used.

"Q", "W", "E", "R" - the use of skills (from left to right). Primary keys for using all skills.

"Alt + Q", "Alt + W", "Alt + E", "Alt + R" - increase the skill level (from left to right). At first, skills can be increased using the mouse, but with increasing skill, it is best to do this using the keyboard.

"D" - the first additional (sumoner) spell. Like skills, spells must be learned using the keyboard.

"F" - the second additional (sumoner) spell. Like skills, spells must be learned using the keyboard.

"A" - attack the first target that enters the champion's field of view. Very handy when you're chasing an enemy trying to hide in the bushes. If an enemy champion tries to trick you and change direction abruptly, your champion will still attack him as soon as he sees him.

"S" - champion stop.

"H" - (hold). While the button is pressed, the champion stands still and does nothing. This is mainly used during the swing, so as not to attack the minions unnecessarily, but to make effective attacks in order to finish off.

"1 - 6" - inventory slots. In League of Legends, there are many items that not only provide various bonuses, but can be used during combat. Well, of course, the fastest way to use them is with the keyboard.

"B" - when used, your champion starts teleporting to the base.

"Z" - chat history.

"M" - opening a large location map.

"Arrows" - move the camera. It is better to immediately forget about these keys and not use them.

"C" - Character characteristic.

"P" - open a store. Of course, if you are far from the store, then you won’t be able to buy items, but you can see the price of an item.

"Tab" - shows match statistics.

"G", "Alt + Left click" - mark on the map. Used very often to show your allies some key places on the map or to indicate to the allies that the enemy hero has left your lane.

"Alt + Left click on the champion" - focus mark. Used in large fights to point out a specific enemy hero. Also often used to draw the attention of your allies to a certain hero.

"Y" - fix the camera. It is best not to use this feature.

"Space" - Centers the camera on your champion. In some cases, it can help, but as a rule, a competent player always keeps his hero in sight.

"F1 - F5" - centering the camera on your champion or an ally's champion.

"L" - turn on / off the display of minions' health. To be honest, the health of minions is always better to see, in order to finish them off in time.

"Shift + L" - turn on / off the display of champions' health.

"Ctrl+F" - enable/disable FPS display.

"Alt+Right click" - minion control. Some champions can call on various monsters to help them. That's just to control them, and this key combination was invented.

"F12" - take a screenshot.

"Esc" - game menu.

In addition to the hotkeys in League of Legends, there are a number of commands that are used in the chat. These are mainly commands for negotiating with other players, but there are also a few commands for controlling your champion's emotions.

First, let's look at the basic chat commands. Be sure to pay attention to the "/" character, which is placed before all commands.

Enter - opens the chat. Next comes the message. Pressing "enter" again sends the message. Be careful when sending a message, as you can accidentally press "enter" and then use hotkeys, but they will not work, but the message will be typed in the chat. It is also worth remembering that when sending a message in this way, only your allies will see it. To send a message to all participants, a specific key combination is used, described below.

/Help - a list of commands and their description

/all or "Shift + Enter" - opens the chat, but the message is written for all participants. After typing the message, you just need to press "enter" to send the message.

/W "" "" - send a private message to the player.

/R - Reply to the last private message.

/Mute "" - adds the player to the black list (ignore).

/buddylist - Displays all players from the online friend list.

/surrender - Start a vote to lose. When you see that your team can no longer win, then you can use the team. After that, all players will have a small voting menu. In order for your team to surrender, it is necessary that the majority of the players vote in favor. When you play on a big map, i.e. 5v5, you need 4-5 players to vote for defeat. If your team votes, for example, 3 to 2, then the vote will not be valid and it can only be repeated after a few minutes.

/nosurrender - vote "no" defeat. It’s easier, of course, to simply click “NO” in the voting menu that appears.

Before the start of the match, you can show off to your allies using your champion's various emotes.

/joke - The champion starts telling a joke. You can also use the abbreviation "/j" or the hotkeys ctrl+1.

/taunt Taunt another champion. You can also use the abbreviation "/t" or the hotkeys ctrl+2.

/dance - The champion starts to dance. You can also use the abbreviation "/d" or the hotkeys ctrl+3.

/laugh - Champion starts laughing. You can also use the abbreviation "/l" or the hotkeys ctrl+4.

Still have questions? Ask in the chat


"Q", "W", "E", "R" - the use of the main abilities of the character.

"X" - normal attack.

"Alt+Q", "Alt+W", "Alt+E", "Alt+R" - learning ability. Using Alt saves time, which allows you to not be distracted from the battle if you were learning skills with the mouse.

"D", "F" - use of additional abilities. For example, a summoned being.

"A" - send the character "through attack". Your character will run in a given direction and will attack the first enemy he comes across. Convenient when you are catching up with the enemy, and he is trying to hide in landscape.

"S" - stop key. The character stops or stops any previously given action.

"H" - hold position. When pressed, the character stands still and does nothing. Useful when you are in an ambush or you don't need to attack minions (for example, for a support).

Keys from 1 to 6 - use inventory items. Some items can be activated, so it's best to use hotkeys. Saves a lot of time in the heat of battle.

"Z" - shows the chat history.

"B" - character teleportation to the base.

"M" - opens a large map.

"C" is the characteristic of the character.

"Space" - move the camera to your character. As a rule, players use it all the time. For example, you can quickly see what is happening on the other line and quickly return to your character.

"P" - open shop. You can’t buy items away from the base, but you can see certain assemblies and prices.

"Y" - fixing the camera on your character. Useless option.

"G" or "Alt+left mouse button" - make a mark on the map (ping). Warns allies of your intentions or communicates information. As a rule, it should be intuitive, for example, that the enemy has left the line.

"Alt+left click on champion" - creates a mark on an enemy champion. Allows you to focus the attention of allies on a specific target, which is useful during team battles.

"Alt + right mouse button" - allows you to control the summoned creature. You must first hold down the Alt key and start control.

"L" - turns on or off the display of minions' health. A useless option, since you always need to see them in order to finish off in time and get gold.

"Ctrl+F" - turns on or off the display of FPS (frames per second).

"F1 - F5" - move the camera to your character or an ally's character.

"F12" - when pressed, takes a screenshot.

"Tab" - shows match statistics.

Chat commands

Enter - opens a chat that only allies will see.

Alt + Enter - chat, the messages of which will be seen by everyone.

Basic commands:

/help - description and list of commands.

/W "player nickname" "message" - private message.

/r - reply to the last private message.
