— Description, Sonic Chronicles: The Dark Brotherhood[1]

Taunt (ちょうはつ Chōhatsu?, lit. "Provocation") is a POW move used by Big the Cat in Sonic Chronicles: The Dark Brotherhood. When performing this move, Big becomes the sole target of an enemy and fortifies himself when the foe attacks him.


When performing Taunt, Big runs up in front of a chosen opponent. Big then turns around and shows his buttocks to his opponent, while mockingly slapping them twice with his left hand, provoking his opponent to attack only him, before falling back to his team again and reinforcing himself for incoming attacks.

In gameplay, when successfully performing Taunt, the player targets one enemy on the opposing side of the battlefield. That enemy can then only attack Big with his/her attacks, and is unable to attack any other characters on the player's party. Additionally, when performing Taunt, Big gives himself the Fortified status effect for three rounds. The higher the level of Taunt is, the greater the Fortified status effect that Big gives himself will be.

Real-Time Interaction

When performing Taunt in gameplay, the player has to complete a series of real-time events by performing certain actions on the touchscreen, in order to execute the Taunt optimally. When in progress, the player has to touch four circles in succession when the outer circles overlap the inner circles. Missing or not touching these circles correctly will result in Big failing to perform Taunt.
