- For faces over mice's heads, see Emoticons.
Mice can perform various animations, also known as actions, to visually show their attitude. These are mostly performed by pressing icons on the GUI, but some can also be performed by using chat commands, E, or consumables.
There are two types of animations: single and interactive.
Single animations consist of dance, laugh, cry, kiss, anger, clap, sleep, confetti and flag wave. Interactive animations consist of high five, hug, nuzzle and rock-paper-scissors. Interactive animations are animations that require another mouse to do the same animation in order for it to work. When using an interactive animation, a bubble with said animation will show next to your mouse. When another mouse uses the same animation within a certain threshold, it will trigger the actual animation.
Originally, dance, laugh, and cry were the only animations available, but new animations were added later.
Capturing the cheese while doing an animation will end the animation.
Animations are disabled when there are at least 30 mice in the room.
|Dance||Pressing this button causes your mouse to move left and right.|
|Laugh||Pressing this button causes your mouse to point and laugh. It is often used to laugh at a shaman's mistake, to troll, or to laugh when someone else is crying.|
|Cry||Pressing this button causes your mouse to continuously cry.|
|Kiss||Using this emote causes your mouse to blow a kiss/heart in the direction they're facing.|
|Anger||Pressing this causes your mouse to get upset, and stomp on the ground.|
|Clap||Pressing this causes your mouse to clap.|
|Sleep||Pressing this causes your mouse to lay down and nap.|
|Facepalm||Pressing this causes your mouse to facepalm, or simply cover its face with one paw.|
|Sit||Pressing this causes your mouse to sit down. You can also sit down by clicking on a seat.|
|Confetti||Pressing this causes your mouse to throw confetti. The amount and colors of the confetti are random. During Easter 2015 and some other candy-related events, confetti was replaced with candy (see Gallery).
Pressing the E key will also trigger the animation.
|Flag wave||Waves flag of specified country when using /f chat command.|
|High five||Pressing this causes you to raise a paw, when another mouse presses this it will cause both mice to high-five.
If a mouse starts the high five animation, but no one answers it within 8 seconds, a "sweat drop" will appear on the mouse (to indicate the awkwardness of being left hanging).
It was introduced as part of the New Year's 2016 event.
|Hug||Hugs a nearby mouse. Introduced as part of the Hugging 2016 event.|
|Nuzzle||Nuzzles a nearby mouse. Introduced as part of the Valentine's Day 2016 event.|
|Rock-paper-scissors||Pressing this allows for you to play rock paper scissors with another mouse. It was introduced in V1.301.|
- The high five animation was added alongside the New Year's 2016 event. Before this addition, all animations fit in the UI, but with high five making a total of 9, a "" replaced the sit animation, and pressing the plus will show both the sit and high five animations icons as well as any additional animations.
- High five was the first interactive animation.
- The nuzzle animation is officially called “kissing,” but to avoid confusion with the single animation kiss, it is addressed as “nuzzle.”
- If a mouse stands still while trying to high five and no mice join in, after some time a drop of sweat will roll over the mouse's face.
- Typing in an invalid code for a country flag (/f) will show your mouse waving a stick without a flag.
- Multiple shaman skills can trigger an animation on nearby mice if the shaman uses a certain animation (while having the skill unlocked).
