Mice can perform various emotes, also known as actions, to visually show their attitude. Most are performed by pressing the icons on the user interface (located to the right of your mouse), but some can also be performed by using chat commands, E, or consumables.

There are two types of emotes: single and interactive.

Single emotes consist of dance, laugh, cry, kiss, anger, clap, sleep, confetti and flag wave. Interactive emotes consist of high five, hug, nuzzle and rock-paper-scissors. Interactive emotes are animations that require another mouse to do the same emote in order for it to work. When using an interactive emote, a bubble with said emote will show next to your mouse. When another mouse uses the same emote within a certain threshold, it will trigger the actual emote.

Originally, dance, laugh, and cry were the only emotes available, but new emotes were added later.

Capturing the cheese while doing an emote will end the emote.

Emotes are disabled when there are at least 30 mice in the room.

Interactive emotes[]

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 emote, 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 Astrological 2016 event.

  • For the 4th Anniversary enigma, doing the emote sequence "confetti, dance, confetti, clap, kiss" awarded a badge Badge #9.
  • For a while, there were no confetti and sit buttons. The only way to use confetti was to use E and sit was to click on a couch or chair decoration.
  • The high five emote was added alongside the Astrological 2016 event. Before this addition, all emotes fit in the UI, but with high five making a total of 9, a "Emote plus-icon.png" replaced the sit emote, and pressing the plus will show both the sit and high five emote icons as well as any additional emotes.
  • High five was the first interactive emote.
  • The nuzzle emote is officially called “kissing,” but to avoid confusion with the single emote 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 emote on nearby mice if the shaman uses a certain emote (while having the skill unlocked).
    • Skill icon - Superstar.png Superstar can make nearby mice dance.
    • Skill icon - Chocokiss.png Chocokiss makes nearby mice blow a kiss when the shaman sits near them.
    • Skill icon - Anger.png Anger makes nearby mice cry when the shaman uses the anger emote.
