* AcCENTUponTheWrongSylLABle: Well, they are [[JapaneseRanguage Japanese]]. This has started to fade over the years, as the amount of English in their songs has increased, culminating in the nearly-entirely English "Spending All my Gime".

When success finally came, it made history - Perfume were the first techno act ''ever'' to debut at #1 on the Oricon weekly charts with their single "love the world". And the album ''GAME'' was only the second-ever techno album to reach #1 ''in Japanese pop music history''. [[note]](The first was Music/YellowMagicOrchestra-a band often called the Japanese Music/{{Kraftwerk}}--in 1983, but their biggest single, Kimi ni Mune Kyun, only went as high as #2.)[[/note]]

** "Baby Face" and "STAR TRAIN" become full-on singalongs, as the lyrics appear on screen behind the group.
** Several songs have hand movements that audiences emulate, from "Chocolate Disco"'s O-shaped-hand waving back and forth, to an absolutely {{adorkable}} windmilling-and-waving dance for "Baby Face".

* EpicRocking: edge (triangle mix) and Party Maker are both over 7 minutes long and contain many long instrumental sections. Musically, they are considered among their "hardest" songs.

** That being said, a few songs such as "Take me Take me" and "Kiss and Music" have rather sensual lyrics/implications. The [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y3LYfulEtJM choreography for the former]] is even more so.

* LoopedLyrics: "Spending all my time" and "Take me Take me". The latter is entirely in GratuitousEnglish and the former mostly so. [[note]]The girls had insisted that Nakata include some Japanese lyrics if it was to be released as an A-side.[[/note]]

* RecordProducer: Yasutaka Nakata, who also does double-duty as their songwriter and composer, exclusively producing them since 2003 (he would later perform the same duties for Music/KyaryPamyuPamyu). Nakata's influence over their sound and even their image is undeniable, but he insists that the girls sing the songs pretty much the way they want, with the exception being when he was unusually controlling and specific about how they sang their B-side song "FAKE IT", even to the point that he caused A~chan to cry because he was being so overbearing.

** Polyrhythm was used in ''[[WesternAnimation/{{Cars}} Cars 2]]'' when Lightning [=McQueen=] and Mater were in a Japanese club. The inclusion of the song allowed Perfume to walk the red carpet premiere of the film in LA.
* SingleStanzaSong: "Take me Take me".
* SomethingCompletelyDifferent: Instead of the usual elaborate choreography and costumes accompanying their videos, the PV for "I still love U" had the ladies don simple outfits and sitting in front of a single camera, which pans around to each member as they sing their verses.
