* FollowTheLeader: The easy to pick up interface made it a prime target of this from [[TheProblemWithLicensedGames licensed games]] on the DS, like ''VideoGame/LooneyTunesCartoonConductor'', some of the ''HighSchoolMusical'' games, and a new ''[[http://www.destructoid.com/tgs-michael-jackson-ds-is-the-new-elite-beat-agents-184232.phtml Michael Jackson]]'' game. It was even the basis for the magic system in ''SonicChronicles''. Even Theatrhythm Final Fantasy for 3DS is rumoured to have been inspired by this.
** This game also caused the creation of [[{{VideoGame/Osu}} a fan-made game]] for the PC replicating the mechanics of EBA.

* TheDevTeamThinksOfEverything:
** Try closing your DS during the tutorial.
** In a strange story example, you can see a small cameo by what looks like Tsuyoshi Hanada from the first ''Ouendan'' game in the New-York themed "Sk8er Boi" level. The dev team then decided to make ''an entire scenario'' in the sequel that explained how he could have gotten there. It would be The Producer Thinks Of Everything if 1. it wasn't a game, and 2. the developers were even expecting a sequel to ''Ouendan'' at all.

** Early press releases before the game came out listed Ricky Martin's "Livin' La Vida Loca" as one of the songs that would appear in the game, though it never made it to the final version. Indeed, in the two-player song select menu, there's a blank spot at the end of the list that suggests that a level was indeed taken out late in development, lending credence to this possibility.

** ''September'' and ''Material Girl'' are also in ''VideoGame/WiiMusic''.
