** An update of ''Respect'' will save the Hi Speed option you last used on a specific song so you won't have to change it whenever you change the song. If the speed is different from the saved one, or if there is none saved, it'll be grayed out on the options menu.

** ''Respect'' has a little bit of this trope too. The song formerly known as Seoleim in ''Portable 2'' is now called Heartbeat.[note]Though the song, as well as Part 2, was called Heartbeat in other games.[/note] Meanwhile, Taekwonburi (the "duck rap" song) still doesn't have an English translation.



*** Completely removed [[AnnouncerChatter announcer from the menus]]. (The {{Retraux}} DLC main menus still have it though.)

** The MV for "Ventilator" in Trilogy has a similar style to stick fighting animations. When the song was brought back in ''Respect'', the ''splash screen'' gets a makeover in a crudely hand-drawn style, as well!

Added DiffLines:

* TooLongDidntDub -- When "Heartbeat/Flutter" was introduced in ''Portable 2'', the English translation simply left it as ''Seoleim''. ''Taekwonburi'' is a big example, since it has yet to get an English title since it first debuted.

** Metro Project is planned to be the next DLC to be released.

** Metro Project ''Metro Project'' (''Clazziquai Edition'' and ''Black Square'') is planned to be the next DLC to be released.



* EverythingsBetterWithRainbows -- ''DJ Max Technika 2''. From the teaser to actual gameplay, ''DJ Max Technika 2'' just SCREAMS this.

* EverythingsBetterWithRainbows -- ''DJ Max Technika 2''. From the teaser to actual gameplay, ''DJ Max Technika 2'' just SCREAMS this. This extends even to the ''Technika 2''-themed note and gear in ''Respect'', replacing blue notes with rainbow ones and the normally black background with a rainbow splash.


Added DiffLines:

** ''Respect'' had a few, although they've long since been fixed by patches. One annoying bug that was around during the game's launch turned MAX 90% through MAX 10% judgements into MAX 1%, making high accuracy clears harder than they really should've been.

** ''Respect'' has a little bit of this trope too. The song formerly known as Seoleim in ''Portable 2'' is now called Heartbeat. Meanwhile, Taekwonburi (the "duck rap" song) still doesn't have an English translation.


Added DiffLines:

*** The "Mirror" modifier, which [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin mirrored the chart from left to right]], and the "Random" modifier, which [[LuckBasedMission shuffled the song's notes around]], were both also removed - probably to dodge the issue of attempting to press left and right on the [[UsefulNotes/PlayStation4 DualShock 4]]'s d-pad at the same time.


Added DiffLines:

*** The only game so far to have paid DLC. (''Technika Tune'' on the UsefulNotes/PlaystationVita was supposed to have it too, [[WhatCouldHaveBeen but that got canned]].)


Added DiffLines:

** The NB Ranger music videos are an AffectionateParody of Franchise/SuperSentai and Franchise/PowerRangers.
** ''Trilogy'''s "Ventilator" has a monochrome pixel art-styled video that looks a lot like [[UsefulNotes/TurnOfTheMillennium mid-2000s]] animated [=GIFs=] made in Easytoon, [[https://danbooru.donmai.us/posts/108934?tags=ren_%28multilockon%29 like this one]].


Added DiffLines:

*** The line shows up again in the music video for "Don't Die" [[ItMakesSenseInContext right as a mobile gamer bows in front of a grave]]. Speaking of which, the entire video itself is one huge TakeThat at NintendoHard mobile games that are designed to sap the player's money through revival-based microtransactions.
*** Mycin.T's "Groovin Up" is a homage to the general aesthetic of TheEighties, both in sound design and visuals.


Added DiffLines:

** The music video for "Don't Die" is basically "How mobile games can ruin your life: The Music Video".

** ''Trilogy'' is the worst example of this. You'll need to complete many different songs just to get the gold and points needed to unlock ''one'' avatar! Not to mention that you need to buy songs, but at least those are the cheapest unlocks...

* InconsistentDub -- "Ask to Wind" was originally called "Ask the Wind" in the International Version of ''Portable.'' ''Trilogy's'' is the worst for this in terms of the titles originally written in Korean, like "Every Morning" into "Morning Person", as well as "Ask to Wind" being called "Ask to the Wind", among others.

** ''Respect'' has gear and notes based on almost all of the previous entries, excluding ''Ray'', and ''Online''. Trilogy's skin requires the DLC.

* StylisticSuck -- In ''Respect'', ''Ventilator'''s Splash Screen is a crudely drawn picture, based off of the Stick Figure Fight-styled MV.
* SurprisinglyGoodEnglish -- Every song by Ruby Tuesday features English lyrics which, despite the {{Narm}}, are actually well put together.
** Songs featuring the rapper Mike Blunck (or "Mike B") definitely qualify.

*** In ''Respect'', The final song in mission mode, [[spoiler: We're All Gonna Die [[HarderThanHard XB (10 buttons)]]]], is preceded by a mission unlocked right before it with relatively easier [[spoiler: XB]] notecharts, giving players a chance to get used to the gimmick. There's also a popup briefly illustrating what [[spoiler: L2 and R2 notes]] will look like in-game, so nobody is caught by surprise.
