* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vQ8I-h6dOA0 PARANOiA HADES]] from ''Dance Dance Revolution [=SuperNOVA=] 2''. Think of it this way - one of the hardest songs in the game. Halfway in, the song drops in speed, then speeds up slightly again. Partway through that speed up (at 1:26 in the video), the build-up begins. Every time without fail, this part makes the hairs on the back of my neck stand on end, as if to say "This next part is going to kick your ass." Add to that the disturbing backing video, and you actually fear the next part of the song, in the most awesome way. All of this by '''jun''', by the way. Yes, the same jun who makes happy-go-lucky LuckyCharmsTitle songs like "KIMONO♥PRINCESS", "Happy☆Angel", and [[VideoGame/CrossBeats "EMERALD<3KISS"]].

* [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j0L4vCUVC8E Max 300]] from ''Dance Dance Revolution 6th Mix'' (also known as ''DDRMAX''). The first Extra Stage-exclusive (initially) song, and the first to clock in at 300 BPM. When ''DDRMAX'' was first released, being able to clear its Heavy/Expert charts was a huge deal.

** MAX would go on to become a series institution, with ''DDR EXTREME'' producing [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8ev9xhA4yek The legend of MAX]].
** [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Xr1TBEdjG90 Max 300 (Super-Max-Me Mix)]] (originally) from DDR Ultramix 2 on X-box, a remix of both Max 300 and [=MaxX=] Unlimited (though mainly [[NonIndicativeName the latter]]).

** The less-remembered 2MB remix [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ddvx9Shc1ZI MAX. (period)]] [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=r9exquNpa08 (clean audio only link here)]], available only on the Japanese console version of Extreme. [[spoiler:This is available on the latest arcade version of DDR through the Replicant D-Ignition extra stage system now.]] It was the utter peak of difficulty escalation in DDR before In The Groove's challenge-oriented design forced Konami to up the ante to match. The fourth wall gets a beating - the background video depicts recording sessions and the distorted voice is whispering "WHY DO YOU NEED KONAMI ORIGINAL SONGS?". The normally silent [[RecurringRiff slowdown]] has a tiny glimpse of nostalgia to the first ever DDR mix, with the faint background music and step patterns taken from [=PARANOiA=], the first boss song of the series. After a few seconds of standard MAX fare, the speed rockets to a staggering ''six hundred beats per minute,'' the fastest official song scrolling speed around that time. The rest of the MAX songs skirted the line between "legitimate song" and "difficulty justification", but MAX. is an unabashed attack towards the player.

*** It's on the fence whether or not it's technically a "MAX" song, mostly owing to its softer difficulty, but [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9XUOFXjG9uA MAXIMIZER]] is just a minute and a half of fast, pulse-pounding, hardcore techno goodness.
