* NintendoHard: One of the biggest hurdles for new players is working on their foot-eye coordination, learning how to move their body in correspondence to notes in each of the four lanes. There's also the common [[NoobBridge newbie trap]] of putting one's feet back in the center; many players do this not knowing they can safely leave their feet on the arrows and end up using far more dexterity and stamina than they need to. Getting to the point where you can clear charts that are halfway across the rating scale can take a month, maybe two or even three months, depending on how frequently you practice. The highest echelons of chart difficulty often demand twisting one's body to effectively hit steps at a very high speed, coupled with [[ExerGaming the stamina of your average athlete]].

** CUTIE CHASER's 6-panel Maniac chart has its first notes start right before the point where the player can start hitting notes, and as such it's impossible to get a Perfect on it. Even if you play the chart perfectly, you'll still get at least one Great no matter what.

*** "Revolution". A reference to the title's name and quite fitting to the last 2 songs. Contains all of the Extra Stage (not Encore) songs in order, including the final 2 songs: Trip Machine Evolution and [=PARANOiA=] Revolution. Fortunately, you don't have to read the course like it's 2nd mix.
