** In "In The Zone Zone" from DDR '10 and X3 is a love note to [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/NBA_in_the_Zone NBA In The Zone]], licensed basketball games made by Konami.Konami, with the song itself being an arranged vocal version of the intro theme to its third installment, ''In The Zone '98''.
*** Much earlier than that, "After the Game of Love" was essentially the results music from ''In The Zone '98'' but with lyrics. Further referencing it is the artist name for both "After the Game of Love" and "In The Zone", NPD3 (itself an alias for Yuichi "U1" Asami, whose first project at Konami was ''In The Zone '98''), being the initials of the Japanese version's name, ''NBA Power Dunkers 3''.

* ArtifactTitle: The "Perfect" timing window was originally called such because you had to be on the exact frame to get it, in a game that runs at only 30 FPS. Later games would run at 60 FPS, but the timing windows remain the same, so you're granted some degree of leniency in getting a Perfect. This trope kicked into full swing when ''EXTREME'' introduced the "Marvelous" judgement, which is higher than a Perfect, even moreso when ''[=SuperNOVA=] 2'' made Marvelous judgements apply to all modes, not just nonstop or Challenge courses. Now, while you still get a "Perfect Full Combo" recognition for getting all Perfects but no Marvelouses, it's no longer a perfect performance; in fact, if you're using EX Score[[note]]an alternate scoring system that, among other things, gives Perfects 2/3 as much value as Marvelous[[/note]], an all-Perfect run means you've only obtained ~67% of the maximum score.

** ''DDR A'' changes the scoring ratios a little bit by making Greats worth a little more, and more importantly, now making Goods actually give out points.

* TheFourthWallWillNotProtectYou: Low-key, but if you clear "tohoku Evolved", one of the boss songs from X3, instead of saying "CLEARED", the game will say "PRAY FOR ALL".
