Taunter (also can be referred to as Taunt Thief) is an ability typically reserved for a heel, who will use insulting language (such as Trash Talking) or inappropriate gestures to demoralize the recipient, thus stealing away confidence and crowd support from the opponent(s).
Its icon is represented by a wrestler flexing his arms.
An e-wrestler who has Taunter listed for an ability will be able to do the following:
- Like a showboater, will do something flashy before actually achieving his or her goal.
- First be concerned with crowd reaction to generate heel heat.
- Often times will mimmick opponent's gestures.
