IDs for new ROBLOX animations to load them into NPCs?

I didn’t really know what subforum to put this post in. I want to make my NPCs shrug, dance, and salute, and since I’m not the best animator, I was wondering if there is a way to make NPCs do that? All I need is the animation ID. ROBLOX seems to allow users to use /e wave etc, which I currently use. Where can I find the animation IDs for the new ones?


Yes there is a way to do this, just load the animation into the NPC like you would do with a normal character, and make sure the NPC is rigged like a normal humanoid, if you are using a custom rig there might be a harder process to make animations work. Also, if you still don’t know how to do this, let me know, I can try making you an example game :smiley:

I understand, but where do I find the animation ids?

Once you create an animation, go to the group or your profile, find the animation you named, just like a UserId, you will see the animationID, you copy that and make an animation, and then put the animationID in that animation, and load that into the NPC.

Edit; You cannot use others animations, they must be uploaded to something you own, or are a developer in

I’m talking about the ROBLOX animations for shrug. Do i need to make my own?

Thank you very much! I’ve been looking for this.

Edit: Nevermind, that doesn’t have the new roblox animations? Like the shrug and salute.

Are you attempting to try emotes? Here is the catalog area of it, try getting the assetID, I don’t know how emotes function, but I’ll go into studio and see if I can find you the animation ID’s if the assetID doesn’t work for you! :smiley:

What I’m trying to do:
I want to make non player characters do the NEW ROBLOX emotes like shrug and salute. I already have the ids for wave, cheer, etc. I’m looking for the new ones.

Yes, if you could find the new animation IDs that would be great!

Which animation ID’s did you want again?

I’m hoping to just get a list of all of them, but I would mainly prefer the shrug ID and the shy ID

If you would like me to send the script I can, all I did was add a statement in every area where an emote is played;


Here is the Shy animation ID it printed;

And here is the shrug animation ID it printed;

Pretty hacky solution, but there ya go.


That would be good. I just need the animation IDs.

Just to show this works, I used a free model hotwired script and pasted the animation ID’s.

Thank you so much! I appreciate your help.

Anytime, glad I could help!

Here is the script, make sure to put it into startercharacterscripts.

This should print them into the output, and then you can copy it!


What did y ou use for the emote variable
