** The ultimate memetic song of BEMANI: "[[VideoGame/{{Jubeat}} FLO]][[VideoGame/ReflecBeat WER]]". It is infamous for its excessive crossing over into other rhythm games. In addition to its initial appearance on ''jubeat'' and ''REFLEC BEAT'', it has also appeared on ''VideoGame/{{DanceDanceRevolution}}'', ''VideoGame/PopNMusic'', ''VideoGame/{{beatmania}} IIDX'', ''[=BeatStream=]'', ''VideoGame/{{Dance|Masters}}Evolution'', ''Miraidagakki [=FutureTomTom=]'', ''VideoGame/{{GITADORA}}''[[note]]as a rock remix by [=TLION69=][[/note]], and ''[[VideoGame/SoundVoltex SOUND VOLTEX]]''[[note]]as a remix by [=REDALiCE=], due to a policy against putting non-remixed Konami originals into ''SDVX'' at the time[[/note]].Yes, that means EVERY active BEMANI series. Just to add even more fuel to the fire, [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gcPQeSgA2Rw the 2013 BEMANI commercial plays FLOWER in the background]].\\
\\
It gets worse. The ''Tenkaichi otoge sai Zenkoku issei nintei taikai'' event is a {{Crossover}} event between multiple companies' rhythm games--specifically, ''VideoGame/{{jubeat}} saucer fulfill'', ''VideoGame/{{maimai}} ORANGE'', ''VideoGame/TaikoNoTatsujin Kimidori Ver.'', and ''VideoGame/GrooveCoaster EX'' in 2014. The representative song from ''jubeat'' is "FLOWER". That's right, "FLOWER" even crosses over to non-Konami rhythm games! \\
\\
Later, Konami added two of their songs into SEGA rhythm game ''CHUNITHM''. One of them is "Chikuwa parfait da yo CKP" by Marika and Meu Meu from [=HinaBitter=]. The other is "FLOWER". \\
\\
The next ''Tenkaichi otoge'' event saw "FLOWER" being put in ''Synchronica'' as well as ''VideoGame/SoundVoltex'' alongside its [=REDALiCE=]-remixed form. \\
\\
All in all, "FLOWER" has appeared in [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HhW5et4Dmsk 15 distinct rhythm game series]] [[Creator/{{Konami}} by]] [[Creator/{{SEGA}} four]] [[Creator/NamcoBandai different]] [[Creator/{{Taito}} developers]]. Some would say it isn't just BEMANI's SignatureSong but that of the entire RhythmGame genre.
*** Those outside the BEMANI community may know "FLOWER" from a remix video of it using the famous "Yee" clip from the mockbuster ''[[Creator/DingoPictures Dinosaur Adventure]]'' entitled "[[https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=tha07Sasx60 Yee Mania]]". What's even funnier is that Yee Mania has more views than ''two'' videos of just the song.
*** For the first ''beatmania IIDX INFINITAS'' alpha test, one song was brought in from later releases, which naturally was "FLOWER". It was sadly snipped from the final release, but was brought back later in a January 2016 update.

* Rislim -Remix- [[labelnote:Explanation]]When user Azure posted on VJ Army that he ''really'' wanted to play the song in question, people poked fun at him for worshiping the song.[[/labelnote]]
* [[DoubleEntendre Is 69 easier with]] [[BiggerIsBetterInBed Hard on]]? [[labelnote:Explanation]]Once again, Azure posted for help on Innocent Wall's stupid 69th measure with that response.[[/labelnote]]
* You can't spell Revival without ''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jXhT2Umsz3U V]]''! [[labelnote:Explanation]]V, originally from the arcade version of ''Beatmania IIDX 5th Style'', went on to reappear in a large number of console ''IIDX'' releases. While reapparances of songs in arcade versions are the norm, to have a song come back multiple times in console versions, which have much smaller songlists (and thus revivals are fewer and further in between), V in particular, it comes off as silly. Naturally, "V" was revived for the alpha test of the long, ''long'' overdue ''beatmania IIDX INFINITAS''.[[/labelnote]]

* Creator/{{Kon|ami}}[[FanNickname mai]] [[SarcasmMode Quality]][[labelnote:Explanation]]A phrase often used when Konami [[ObviousBeta cuts]] [[TheyJustDidntCare corners]] in developing their games, leading to things like poor translations, hilarious blatant typos, {{Game Breaking Bug}}s, and the like. Most often associated with BEMANI games, but could also be used for other Konami games as well.[[/labelnote]]

* Daisuke[[labelnote:Explanation]]On Website/{{Vine}}, the #Daisuke tag consists of BaitAndSwitch clips that suddenly cut to the "Daisuke" line from the Y&Co. song "Daisuke" right as someone pronounced the 'D' consonant. Usually for full effect the interruption takes place as someone says ''daisuki'' (Japanese for "I like/love you") or a name ending in "-suke".[[/labelnote]]

** Those outside the BEMANI community may know "FLOWER" from a remix video of it using the famous "Yee" clip from the mockbuster ''[[Creator/DingoPictures Dinosaur Adventure]]'' entitled "[[https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=tha07Sasx60 Yee Mania]]". What's even funnier is that Yee Mania has more views than ''two'' videos of just the song.

** KFC[[labelnote:Explanation]]The code name for ''SOUND VOLTEX BOOTH'' is "KFC", as in Kentucky Fried Chicken. This meme mostly surged in popularity after ''SOUND VOLTEX BOOTH'' was cracked and made available for home use on certain websites.[[/labelnote]]
** 69%[[labelnote:Explanation]]In ''SOUND VOLTEX'', 70% is the minimum required gauge to clear. This time, percentages are in 1% increments. It's not only the new 78%, but [[FreudWasRight 69 also happens to be a particularly lewd number]].[[/labelnote]]

* PHQUASE traps[[labelnote:Explanation]]The most common definition of this is a filter knob pattern which appears to be a crossover, but both knob trails turn back on themselves after meeting in the middle (think >< instead of X). SDVX "effector" (chart maker) and composer, PHQUASE, does a lot of these, along with similar filter knob traps.[[/labelnote]]
* Universe Stage[[labelnote:Explanation]]A song in SOUND VOLTEX BOOTH, which has a particularly annoying button pattern that is very easy to miss on. People who can usually pass most 15 even find this one difficult.[[/labelnote]]
