Sonic's and Tails' idle pose.

Idle poses, also referred to as idle animations, are minor animations that characters perform when they stand still for a certain amount of time.

In both Super Smash Flash and Super Smash Flash 2, only a small number of characters strike an idle pose, while the rest of characters simply blink or do nothing.
