Taunts are special moves which characters can perform, where the character performs a special animation, usually of them taunting their opponent. Each character has one taunt, with inputs varying between them. Depending on the character, completing a taunt successfully provides a bonus, such as a power boost or additional attack the next time certain moves are performed.
Initially, most of the playable characters in Skullgirls lacked taunts, however they were given them during the Skullgirls Encore updates.
Peacock taunts her opponent by taking her hat off, revealing Avery on her head who also takes his hat off, with the insect on his head taking its hat off as well. Using a fully charged Shadow of Impending Doom after performing a taunt will result in dropping a Tenrai Ha instead of a standard Level 3 object.
