* NoExportForYou: If you were to make a pie chart of the number of BEMANI games released in Eastern and Southeast Asia and the number of BEMANI games released overseas, the result would be Pac-Man with a nearly-closed mouth. It got worse in 2012 when Konami started requiring BEMANI games to be connected to the [=eAMUSEMENT=] network, as well as making their games lease-only as part of the [=eAMUSEMENT=] Participation program rather than outright purchasable. . There are efforts to run a third-party clone of the [=eAMUSEMENT=] network, but see FanworkBan above for what this can lead to.

** [[Music/{{VOCALOID}} "Senbonzakura"]] is available on five different BEMANI games...but that number drops to ''one'' if you're playing in South Korea.

** "Soflan", a term used for sudden and dramatic BPM changes. The term originates from "SOFT LANDING ON THE BODY" from ''{{beatmania}} IIDX 2nd Style'', which shuffles between 79, 159, and 318 BPM. Bonus points if the song itself does not actually change BPM but the scroll BPM does.

* ExecutiveMeddling: Inverted with "Brain Power" being removed from ''VideoGame/SoundVoltex'' and ''VideoGame/{{MUSECA}}'': [[https://twitter.com/noma113/status/844211648566984705 it was NOMA and not Konami who chose to not have the song's contract renewed]]. Played straight in the reasoning though: [[https://twitter.com/noma113/status/844211994198650880 The contract gave Konami the rights to "Brain Power"]], and as such it could not be used in non-Konami media or gigs, not even NOMA's own, without having to ask Konami, and NOMA wanted to be able to have control over his own song. That said, NOMA has stated that it's not the ''permanent'' end to "Brain Power" as a music game track; [[https://twitter.com/noma113/status/844213993719832576 there's the option to modify and renew the contract at a future date]]. In fact, right after it vanished from ''Sound Voltex'', it re-appeared on ''Neon FM'' (which gave it MemeAcknowledgement).
