Emotes are a type of Curio in Don't Starve Together that allows the player to have their character perform an action by typing the corresponding command into the chat. Several commands can be used by default, such as: /happy, /angry, /no, /bonesaw, /dance, /facepalm, /joy, /kiss, /pose, /rude, /cry, /wave, /sit, /squat, /toast, /pet, and /bigpet. Some of these commands (such as dance, sit, and squat) are looped and will continue playing until the characters move or are hit.

Domesticated Beefalo also have their own set of emotes when mounted by a character; likewise, Woby has her own emotes when mounted by Walter. The mounts will mimic whatever emote the player types in the chat. However, mounts don't have pose or wave emotes, so they will simply stand still when the player uses those commands.

Default Emotes

Some default Emotes have alternate commands, listed in the table below in parentheses underneath the main command.

Unlockable Emotes

There are Emotes that are either weaved with Spools, unlocked by completing Skin ensembles, or dropped through Chests (either purchased through the Shop or earned by leveling up), the in-game drops, or the daily skin reward when opening the game. They cannot be traded or sold on the Steam market. Emotes can be previewed in the Curio Cabinet.

Placeholder.png Trivia

Wilson performing the 'Dab' emote

  • The emote /bonesaw and its alternate commands (/ready, /goingnowhere, /playtime, /threeminutes) are a reference to the 2002 Spider-Man film. The commands originate from quotes by the character Bonesaw McGraw: "Bonesaw is ready!" and "Hey freak show! You're going nowhere. I got you for three minutes. Three minutes of playtime."
  • When Maxwell's shadow puppets are idling, they do the same emotes as Maxwell.
  • There is an unused 'Dab' emote in the animation files used for one of Klei's tweets that can be activated, like all other player animations, using commands in the Console. The command is: ThePlayer.AnimState:PlayAnimation("emote_dab_pre")or "emote_dab_loop" or "emote_dab_pst"
