Do any taunts annoy you? Which ones?

When you kill with :4luigi:down taunt I always get mad. Spam :4bowserjr:down tilt, you win. Finally, :4villager:side taunt... just please stop it

Even those are not that bad, in my opinion. Her tone isn't braggy or anything.

Neither seems very offensive or rude to me. It's not like they're saying "You suck!" or "You fight like a cow" or "I could beat you with one hand tied behind my back". If they did, then yes, I might find taunts a bit annoying. Kirby dancing? Not annoying.

To those who find taunting/emoting annoying: Why? Do you also find it annoying in other games, such as Overwatch and Team Fortress 2?
The reason they are annoying isn't necessarily because of the taunts themselves. There are dozens of YouTube videos of people who perform these taunts or teabag while basically telling someone they're a waste of a skin. People associate those taunts with someone out there telling them they are stupid or should quit, because of how many streamers tie those words to taunts.

Words hurt, even over a video game.

Most taunts are not very irritating to me because of the thought that a real person is operating fictional character. There are, however, a few exceptions...

Sonic: "C'mon, step it up!"
Sonic: "You're too slow!"
Peach: "La-la-la-la-la-la"
Wario: (Oblivious laugh)

I know what I am about to say is not a taunt, but it is more annoying than most of the above...

Peach: "Awww, did I win?" (because of the falling tone, I think.)
