The Tidy Emote in Fortnite is one of the oldest emotes in the game and was recently put back into the item shop.
This emote features the iconic dance from rapper Snoop Dogg. It was first added to the game back in Chapter 1 Season 3 in April 2018.
This item has not been in the shop for quite some time, so many players have not had the chance to purchase this emote. It now looks like they will need to wait longer!
Why Was The Tidy Emote Removed From The Fortnite Shop?
The Tidy Emote was briefly available for less than 2 hours on December 5, 2022, in the Fortnite item shop in the “Vaulted A Year Or More” section. However, Epic Games quickly removed it.
According to FortniteStatus, this shop section was in the game as an error. However, it will return at a later date.
The Tidy Emote is one of the rarest in Fortnite. The last time it was available to purchase was in December 2018.
This means there is a large section of the Fortnite fan base who do not own this emote.
This emote was originally removed back in 2018 after Snoop Dogg discovered his dance was used without his permission.
Rumors of a lawsuit were circling around the time but instead, Epic Games removed it from the store to prevent any more legal issues.
What is the Tidy Emote in Fortnite?
The Tidy Emote is an iconic dance created by legendary rapper Snoop Dogg in his music video for “Drop It Like It’s Hot“.
This dance was then recreated and added to Fortnite under the name “Tidy”.

Will the Tidy Emote Return to Fortnite?
It is possible that the emote will return since Fortnite Status notes the “Vaulted More Than A Year” section will be back in the item shop in the future.
As of now though, there is no time frame for when it will return to the Item Shop.
If the emote is to return, it will cost you 500 V-Bucks. You are only able to purchase a minimum of 1,000 V-Bucks, so this will cost you the following if you don’t have any V-Bucks already:
Other items in the “Vaulted A Year Or More Section” but were also quickly removed included:
- Far Out Man Skin (Last Seen 19 October 2020)
- Dreamflower Skin (Last Seen 17 October 2020)
- Drumbeat Harvesting Tool (2 September 2020)
- Tie-Dye Flyer Glider (2 September 2020)
There is currently a way to buy the Tidy emote in Fortnite right now. However, this involves using a bot that hooks into the game’s API.
The last time this method was used was to buy the Brilliant Bomber skin, but Epic Games banned players as this was against the rules.
In the meantime, why don’t you check out the skins coming to Fortnite soon? These include a brand new Mr Beast skin.
Marvel’s Hulk is coming to Fortnite as well. He joins Wolverine, Spider-Man, Spider-Gwen, and Iron Man as part of Fortnite’s Marvel collaborations!
