The Taunt is a manually-controlled manuever in which each character quotes their own fighting words. It made its debut in Vigilante 8: Arcade and can be executed by pressing in the control stick. Each character (including DLC) has three Taunt quotes, one that can be heard from another source, and two that can only be heard through Taunting. The player can Taunt approximately every five seconds, but the timing seems to differ for each character. Taunting serves no point to the game except for entertainment purposes.
