* If you see ''FREEDOM [=DiVE=]↓'' by xi in a rhythm game or rhythm game simulator, expect it to have extremely difficult charts featuring 16th notes running at 222.22 BPM. Clearing its "[[IdiosyncraticDifficultyLevels FOUR]] [[HarderThanHard DIMENSIONS]]" charts in ''Lunatic Rave 2'' and ''osu!'' is something of a rite of passage. In ''VideoGame/{{Cytus}}'', it is one of the "big three" charts alongside ''Codename : Zero''[='=]s and ''L2 (Ver.B)''[='=]s Hard charts, being exceptionally difficult even by level 9 standards, it is the ''first'' song of Chapter 10, the final main chapter of the game, and just to add salt on top of the already-existing salt in the wound, it has a hidden Hard chart with 2,000 notes over the course of 2 1/2 minutes that makes every player wonder if whoever designed the chart had a really bad day. In ''CHUNITHM'', not only does it have a level 13+ Master chart, it also has a [[GimmickLevel World's End]] chart. Except, unlike other World's End charts, "FREEDOM [=DiVE=]"'s sole gimmick is "this is what its BMS charts looks like and now you're going to die."

* The extra stage for DDR 2014's Replicant D-Ignition event, [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oSfJIsozsiY ''Egoism 440'']]. Despite being a 17 on Expert, the chart features intense 8th note streams at a blistering 440 BPM, combined with BPM changes and stops throughout. A [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TDggyBe-yuo challenge chart]] of the song became available for unlock via EXTRA ATTACK. Being the third 19 singles chart in all of DDR, ''Egoism 440'' on challenge features larger, more complicated 8th note streams, a notecount of 811, second only to ''Elemental Creation'' Challenge, and 440 BPM 16th notes at the end. For reference, 16th notes at 440 BPM are approximately 29 STEPS PER SECOND.

* The true final boss of DDR 2014's Replicant D-Ignition event, [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=79bUj18lVkQ Over The "Period"]] upped the ante even further. When first released, it was an Encore Extra Stage exclusive, only accessible by clearing the gruelling MAX. (Period)'s Challenge charts with at least an AA. One had to ''perfect full combo'' its level 15 Difficult chart to clear it, or they would instantly fail. The catch - the song contains some of the most ridiculous BPM changes seen in any DDR chart, including starting on a ridiculously slow 32.5 BPM, abusing that slow speed to introduce a virtually imperceptible slowdown, a blistering 840 BPM segment making speed mods a very bad idea, and even oscillating BPMs during hold arrows. The Difficult chart was ''never'' cleared with the required PFC during the event.

** Of course, there is the crowning king of difficult guitar segments...Through the Fire and the Flames on DLC.

** Of course, there is the crowning king of difficult guitar segments...Through the Fire and the Flames on DLC. While the song was hard enough when released on Rock Band 3 (Operation Ground and Pound would end up being harder), the Rivals update to Rock Band 4 also brought with it a rechart for the guitar part, adding sextuplet tapping to the first solo and a 32nd-note tapping section (with green anchored) to the last solo, in addition to other adjustments like fixing forced strums and [[DamnYouMuscleMemory changing just enough notes to throw off people who learned the song prior to the update.]]

* ''VideoGame/OsuTatakaeOuendan'' has two: "Koi No Dance Site," infamously tough on the Insane difficulty, and "Ready Steady Go," the last song, where hit markers are everywhere at the end. The American spiritual sequel, ''EliteBeatAgents'', is considered by most to be a touch easier... aside from the syncopated "off-beats" on "Canned Heat." Then you get to the final song, "Jumpin' Jack Flash," and its near-impossible final verse. Similarily, ''OsuTatakaeOuendan 2'' has the final stage on Insane difficulty.

** And then there's virtually ''every single fan-made level'' in its PC counterpart, ''osu!'' Combine the less-precise mouse controls with maps made by people who routinely seem to forget that this isn't ''VideoGame/DanceDanceRevolution'', and [[SarcasmMode have fun]]!



* Remix 8 of ''VideoGame/RhythmHeaven.'' Due to its fast pace, this song requires precise timing to succeed at, especially if you're aiming for a Superb rating. It doesn't help that it cycles through several different games in quick succession.

*** Lockstep is a very interesting case. It consists of you constantly switching between the beat and the off-beat. It is absolutely impossible to beat by trying to muscle your way through, but once it clicks, you'll get perfect every time afterwards. It's really just about getting that one skill instead of practicing / grinding.

*** ** Lockstep is a very interesting case. It consists of you constantly switching between the beat and the off-beat.

It's really just about getting that one skill instead of practicing / grinding.grinding, and you'll feel really good about yourself once you do get it... And then along comes Lockstep 2, which, because it uses a swing beat, renders all your hard-learned skills from the first iteration utterly worthless. Have fun learning it all over again!


Added DiffLines:

** There's also Working Dough 2. Whereas the first version of the game is relatively straightforward, its late-game brother uses weird, off-beat rhythms and long sections with little to no music... and sometimes ''both at the same time''. Even worse, it's back for a whole new round of hair-yanking frustration in ''Rhythm Heaven Megamix''.
** The Love Rap duo often marks the last two medals most players of ''Fever'' get due to the extremely wonky timing of the "Fo' sho!" input.


Added DiffLines:

* ''Videogame/{{Deemo}}'' has "Magnolia" and its sequel, "Myosotis", both of which, on their hardest difficulties, combine lightning-fast piano sections with dubstep sections that have you sliding your fingers all over the place like a madman. It's telling that, in a game where the highest difficulty rating is typically 10, the latter is rated ''[[UpToEleven 11]]''.

** Most mixes by the Scratch Perverts will be difficult at the very least. Especially [[ChemicalBrothers "Galvanize (Beat Juggle)"]], "[[{{Nosia}} Groundhog (Beat Juggle)]]", and worst of all, "Beats and Pieces" (which even the bot can't FC).

* If you see [[DragonForce "Through the Fire and Flames"]] in a music game (especially a guitar based one) expect it to be absolutely brutal. In RockBand and GuitarHero, its one of both franchise's most infamous BonusBoss and has ThatOneAttack [[OhCrap as its intro]] and some nasty solos throughout. In VideoGame/MusicTimes, its a 10+ chart.

* If you see ''FREEDOM [=DiVE=]↓'' by xi in a rhythm game or rhythm game simulator, expect it to have extremely difficult charts featuring 16th notes running at 222.22 BPM. Clearing its "[[IdiosyncraticDifficultyLevels FOUR]] [[HarderThanHard DIMENSIONS]]" charts in ''Lunatic Rave 2'' and ''osu!'' is something of a rite of passage. In ''VideoGame/{{Cytus}}'', it is one of the "big three" charts alongside ''Codename : Zero''[='=]s and ''L2 (Ver.B)''[='=]s Hard charts, being exceptionally difficult even by level 9 standards, and on top of that it is the ''first'' song of Chapter 10, the final main chapter of the game. In ''CHUNITHM'', not only does it have a level 13+ Master chart, it also has a [[GimmickLevel World's End]] chart. Except, unlike other World's End charts, "FREEDOM [=DiVE=]"'s sole gimmick is "this is what its BMS charts looks like and now you're going to die."

* If you see ''FREEDOM [=DiVE=]↓'' by xi in a rhythm game or rhythm game simulator, expect it to have extremely difficult charts featuring 16th notes running at 222.22 BPM. Clearing its "[[IdiosyncraticDifficultyLevels FOUR]] [[HarderThanHard DIMENSIONS]]" charts in ''Lunatic Rave 2'' and ''osu!'' is something of a rite of passage. In ''VideoGame/{{Cytus}}'', it is one of the "big three" charts alongside ''Codename : Zero''[='=]s and ''L2 (Ver.B)''[='=]s Hard charts, being exceptionally difficult even by level 9 standards, and on top of that it is the ''first'' song of Chapter 10, the final main chapter of the game.game, and just to add salt on top of the already-existing salt in the wound, it has a hidden Hard chart with 2,000 notes over the course of 2 1/2 minutes that makes every player wonder if whoever designed the chart had a really bad day. In ''CHUNITHM'', not only does it have a level 13+ Master chart, it also has a [[GimmickLevel World's End]] chart. Except, unlike other World's End charts, "FREEDOM [=DiVE=]"'s sole gimmick is "this is what its BMS charts looks like and now you're going to die."
