Captain Falcon

  • Facing right: Salutes and exclaims "Show me your moves!"
  • Facing left: Performs a more exaggerated salute and says "Show me your moves!" This taunt ends quicker than the his other taunt.

Donkey Kong

Dr. Mario

  • Waves with both hands towards the screen and says "Hiiiii!"


  • Sheathes his sword and shield and brushes back his hair.


  • Crosses his arms behind his back and performs a small, shy kick. The kick can damage an opponent if it connects, acting as a meteor smash. However, its pitiful range and slow startup severely limits its effectiveness. It is similar to his pose when he loses a minigame in Mario Party 2.
