A victory pose is a short (often random) animation that any character does after winning a match while the losers stand in the background, applauding politely. Typically, every character will have three different poses that can be performed at the end of a match by holding down a certain button, which the DOJO!! claims is based upon the taunt being used by the character at the time, if any. Also note that in Super Smash Bros., Jigglypuff doesn't clap and instead just moves her head to the right and does nothing else. (But in Super Smash Bros. Melee and in Super Smash Bros. Brawl, she moves her head left and right without stopping) Ice Climbers also don't clap and instead cry, referencing the screen seen when failing a mountain in Ice Climber. Wario will cease clapping every few seconds to open his mouth and call out, and Mewtwo just stands in disappointment. Diddy Kong takes off his cap and looks down at the ground with a confused expression on his face. The Pokémon Trainer will pull his hat down and hang his head in sorrow and disappointment while the last Pokémon he had out when the match ended applauds instead.
