** Holding onto the safety bar makes the player look like they're not dancing at all, but it does help the player maintain their balance on harder charts. This has earned accusations of cheating from certain sectors of the fanbase however (i.e. bringing it up is considered FlameBait), as the technique does significantly reduce the difficulty associated with the songs. Nonetheless, most expert players are keen for it.

* TheComputerIsACheatingBastard: Battle mode involves various interface screws like the steps rotating, speeds changing, or arrows disappearing. The computer is unaffected by any of these. Made even more {{egregious}} in ''Disney Mix'' where attaining the unlockables can only be done by playing in the Battle mode. At least the computer has terrible accuracy, getting loads of Greats.

* EmbeddedPrecusor: ''2nd MIX'' has gotten this treatment twice:
** ''3rd MIX'' has ''2nd MIX'' mode, which has most of songlist of ''2nd MIX'' but with ''3rd MIX''[='=]s interface.
** ''X3'' has a ''2nd MIX'' mode that actually recreates the ''2nd MIX'' interface and most of its songlist. Subverted, in that it has two boss tracks that aren't in the original ''2nd MIX''.

** An example truer to the trope name, having "Endymion" selectable as Extra Stage in ''A'' changes the sky blue background with poofy white clouds to blood red sky alongside a jitter effect as the screen goes through the clouds faster than usual, just to tell you loud and clear that THE SONG MEANS BUSINESS (admittedly, [[NintendoHard it does]]).
