** The infamous Raw Thrills DDR X cabinets were also a form of this due to cost concerns; the game even had location tests and convention showings in a Japanese cabinet (although, sans the light sticks in later tests)

* FollowTheLeader: Many clones of [=DDR=] were made, most notably ''VideoGame/StepMania'' and its commercial variant ''VideoGame/InTheGroove''. In these games, ignoring the improvements, you had the same 4-arrow configuration, scrolling up into a gray stepzone, at which point you would get one of five judgments depending on timing, colored just as they are in [=DDR=] (except the best judgment), same handling of jumps, hold steps, video clips in the background, a similar-looking song wheel, etc. This ran full-circle as some ideas from those games were later implemented in [=DDR=]: lightning is similar to [=SM=]'s mines. "Chrome" was removed from [=DDR=]'s interface much like [=ITG=]. [=DDR=]'s "solo" coloring scheme became the basis of [=ITG=]'s coloring scheme, adding some colors which in turn were later used in [=DDR=]'s "rainbow" coloring scheme. [=DDR=] also saw a jump in boss chart difficulty that was large and sudden enough to chalk up as a reaction to the higher difficulty ceiling in games like [=ITG=].

* SequelGap: The arcade ''DDR'' games suffered from this; despite a steady release schedule for arcade games from the original up until ''EXTREME''. From 1998 to 2002, there were [=20ish=] ''DDR'' games released, and then there was a 3 1/2-year gap between ''EXTREME'' and ''[=SuperNOVA=]''. After that gap, ''DDR'' arcade releases became regular once more until DDR 2013, when Konami adopted a rolling release model using online updates; songs were added over time (usually via events), and the "2014" update refreshed the song selection and results screens, but it was technically the same game for three whole years. DDR A was released just over three years later, also via an online update, but unlike the previous patches, it did contain more significant changes to make it qualify as a new version rather than another patch.

** In a particularly jarring case, there is a song in the game titled [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8q6FPZcIJSE Silent Hill]], which is cheery, Christmas-themed song. That is not to be confused with the ''survival horror game'' [[Franchise/SilentHill of the same name]] that was also developed by Konami.

** ''Dancing Stage SuperNOVA 2''. Came out slightly over a year after the North American version (and two weeks after the US got ''DDRX'', even), removed various songs from that version and only added ''one'' new song as compensation. It was also the last release of the series that Europe got for the PS2, as neither ''X'' nor ''X2'' had European equivalents.

** The UsefulNotes/PlayStation game Extra Mix (which has the Solo sub-series songs and the songs new to 4th Mix Plus) has ''three'' pairs of same-named titles: I'm Alive, Together Forever, and Sky High.

*** In the case of "I'm Alive" and "Together & Forever", they're the same songs, but with the second of each being cover versions by different artists. Amusingly, in their original DDR Solo appearances, it was the cover versions that came first on Solo Bass Mix; the originals were later added to Solo 2000.
