* GermansLoveDavidHasselhoff: Central and South Americans love Pump It Up to the point of surpassing DDR in popularity in some of those countries. Because of this, Andamiro not only continues to release international versions despite the decline of Western arcades leading to many East Asian-developed arcade games [[NoExportForYou never getting exported]], but even makes Spanish- and Portugese-language versions with [[RegionalBonus region-exclusive songs]].

* [[AwesomeBosses/VideoGames Awesome Bosses]]:
** There are some memorable boss style charts in World Max. Try playing the full version of Deja Vu where the chart can [[LuckBasedMission randomly change]] at two points.
** The speed of NXA's boss song [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rYGy3QvMuKo&feature=related Final Audition 2-X]] hits ''seventeen steps per second'' in places. God only knows what Fiesta has in store... [[spoiler: Vacuum Cleaner in Fiesta EX!]]
** [[VideoGame/{{Touhou}} "Bad Apple!! feat. nomico"]], full version, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ygu2AtYPg5o four-player Co-Op chart]].

** The ''Pro'' series. Some players like it because it combines ''Pump'' gameplay with the more professional elements of ''VideoGame/InTheGroove'' (such as a "higher than Perfect" judge rank, the removal of the "buffer hold steps" exploit, and the more extensive command menu) and welcome the addition of ''In The Groove'' musicians, but others [[TheyChangedItNowItSucks don't like its deviation from the traditional formula]] or the limitations of the ''VideoGame/{{StepMania}}'' that are not present in mainline ''Pump'' (such as individual charts having separate tempos) and the removal of a large number of Korean songs.

* ScrappyLevel: Some World Max missions. While many of them can be skipped after failing enough times, the [[BossBattle Boss Songs]] can't be.

That said, there are many players who play both ''DDR'' and ''Pump''.
** ''Pump''[='=]s playerbase has had a longtime alliance with that of ''VideoGame/InTheGroove'', another panel-stepping game with [[NintendoHard notoriously difficult]] charts. In fact, the friendship between the two bases led to Andamiro designing the ''In The Groove 2'' dedicated cabinets and the ''ITG'' team working on the ''Pump It Up Pro'' spinoff
series.

*EnsembleDarkhorse: The girl and the robotic eye from the video for Canon-D are commonly depicted in fan art by fans of the game, to the extent that it was chosen to be the trope image for the game.

* InternetBackdraft: The ''Prime'' 1.19.0 trailer featured a preview of "Campanella", which features '''obvious Nazi and Hitler imagery''', drawing the ire of many fans. Not surprisingly, the trailer was pulled 5 hours later.

* ThatOneAttack: Starian's S7 chart[[note]]the Hard chart before the series started using difficulty numbers for chart names[[/note]] is infamous for having four simultaneous jumps at the end which consist of all four diagonals, and due to the design of arcade pads, cannot be simply hit with both feet; the player ''has'' to use their hands unless they happen to have really, really big feet. Quite surprising for a chart that's only in the single digits.

* FandomRivalry: With ''VideoGame/DanceDanceRevolution'', unsurprisingly. Layout differences aside, ''Pump'' fans feel that ''DDR'' charts are too afraid to try anything risky and end up being [[CopyAndPasteEnvironments copy-and-paste charts]], while ''DDR'' fans point out that ''DDR'' charts have standards and avert various forums of dancing game FakeDifficulty.
