For information about the NPCs' usage of emotes, see NPCs § Emotes.

The Emote Command system is a UI that allows players to emote. Emotes are small pictures in chat bubbles, that look similar to NPCs talking to each other, as shown on the right. They can be activated both from player inventory by clicking on the Emotes icon.png icon on the bottom right and from chat commands. Emoting in front of an NPC will initiate a "conversation" similar to NPC interactions. Emotes for bosses and events are unlocked as they are defeated or completed, respectively. In worlds with Corruption, the emote for the Brain of Cthulhu is unlocked after defeating the Eater of Worlds, and vice versa.
