[[folder: Video Game/beatmania / IIDX / III ]]

* Rislim -Remix- [[labelnote:Explanation]]When user Azure posted on VJ Army that he ''really'' wanted to play the song in question, people poked fun at him for worshiping the song.[[/labelnote]]
* [[DoubleEntendre Is 69 easier with]] [[BiggerIsBetterInBed Hard on]]? [[labelnote:Explanation]]Once again, Azure posted for help on Innocent Wall's stupid 69th measure with that response.[[/labelnote]]
* You can't spell Revival without ''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jXhT2Umsz3U V]]''! [[labelnote:Explanation]]V, originally from the arcade version of ''Beatmania IIDX 5th Style'', went on to reappear in a large number of console ''IIDX'' releases. While reapparances of songs in arcade versions are the norm, to have a song come back multiple times in console versions, which have much smaller songlists (and thus revivals are fewer and further in between), V in particular, it comes off as silly.[[/labelnote]]
* Last Message: proving men can't watch two things at once since 7th Style.[[labelnote:Explanation]]Last Message's video features a three second cleavage shot which caused many people to drop their combo, because the players were ostensibly DistractedByTheSexy. The video was dropped for the CS Gold release to avoid the rating going up, despite it being in 7th Style CS and flying under the radar of the Japanese censors.[[/labelnote]]
** Sense 2007 [[labelnote:Explanation]]A boss song from IIDX Gold, which also caused DistractedByTheSexy moments due to its unique video which involves women in tight gold dresses dancing with fans. The video, again, was dropped for the CS release.[[/labelnote]]
** Dai[[labelnote:Explanation]]On the male side of things, Dai is a dancer who appears in several ''IIDX'' and ''[=DanceDanceRevolution=]'' videos, and is known for his flamboyant moves. Two videos in particular show him ''[[ShirtlessScene topless]]''.[[/labelnote]]
* [[{{ThatOneBoss}} Himiko]]? [[BlueVelvet FUCK THAT SHIT! PABST BLUE RIBBON!]] [[labelnote:Explanation]]A reaction to Empress' hardest song. It turned into a ForcedMeme and quickly became stale.[[/labelnote]]
* Preview song: Setsugekka [[labelnote:Explanation]]When 7th style CS was finally ready to come out of DevelopmentHell, a number of songs from 8th style and 9th style AC (which had already been released to the arcades) were included as preview songs. An ultimately-false rumour was spread that Setsugekka, a song from the then-recent 10th style AC, would also been included. People continue to joke about Setsugekka being a preview song in every single console BEMANI Game.[[/labelnote]]
* [[EarWorm smooooch・∀・]]
* [[ThatOneBoss WAAAAAAAAAAAHH!!]] [[RageQuit MOOOOUUUUU]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mX1Lnl5ihXY#2m6s IYA DA!]][[labelnote:Explanation]]This video of someone playing "Scorpion Fire", and failing very near the end, has become associated with the song.[[/labelnote]]
* They can change the grades to "cat" and "sailboat" for all I care, so long as the timing and EX scoring is the same. [[labelnote:Explanation]]Upon the us release of Beatmania IIDX, everyone noticed how AA's were AAA's, A's were AA's and so on. When VJ Army made a "US Mode" that made all of the grades AAA, cue someone posting this. Then we get ''catsailboat mode''[[/labelnote]]
* [[{{Mondegreen}} Truck me~]] [[labelnote:Explanation]]When lineouts of [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1j9XPzNDSKo Injection Of Love]] from Red started to get posted, everyone seriously thought Sana said "Truck Me" (at 1:03 in the linked vid)[[/labelnote]]
* [[http://www.soundclick.com/bands/default.cfm?bandID=213965 Kyle Snyder]] / [[{{Horrible/Music}} Mirror Force / Engulfed Beam / You Can't Escape Me]] [[labelnote:Explanation]]Around 8th style, Konami held a musicianship trial. Kyle Snyder, a prolific DDR freestylist, made the song Mirror Force (cause he had a dream passing the song on IIDX), which was best described as ear rape.[[/labelnote]]
* Laundry Machines [[labelnote:Explanation]]A low-quality video of "gigadelic" from a location test led to one person remarking that the song sounds like "an off-balance washing machine", as demonstrated [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jHFFYnTRdN0 in this vid]] [[/labelnote]]
** When Sega unveiled its new arcade music game [=maimai=], many users joked that its cabinet looked like a washing machine. Of course, the English-language community also got to make jokes about it possibly having "gigadelic" on it too.
** Within the context of [[KyuAndDanRanks 8th Dan]] courses, gigadelic has become infamous for [[ThatOneBoss another reason]].
* What gigadelic is to 8th Dan, THE SAFARI is to 7th Dan, only dating back to ''the beginning of the KyuAndDanRanks system'' that began in ''7th Style''.
** Safari Refugees[[labelnote:Explanation]]7th Dan in IIDX is notorious for being so difficult to complete due to THE SAFARI that there are players who can [[NonIndicativeDifficulty complete 8th Dan but not 7th Dan]]. In Japan, players who do this are known as サファリ難民 (''Safari nanmin'', lit. "Safari Refugees").[[/labelnote]]
* [[{{Engrish}} Peview]]
** [=GXPERT=]
*** [=BRGINNER=] [[labelnote:Explanation]]A deliberate CallBack featured in IIDX 21: SPADA[[/labelnote]]
** [=BLCOKS=]
* Rche's gender[[labelnote:Explanation]]Rche's AmbiguousGender is a hot topic amongst IIDX fans. Incidentally, Rche's also by far one of the most popular Lincle characters, especially on art sites like Pixiv.[[/labelnote]]
* 78%[[labelnote:Explanation]]In ''IIDX'', you need a Groove Gauge of 80% or above to clear the song. Percentages are in 2% increments, making 78% the highest gauge you can have and still fail the song. Naturally, this has led to many players ragequitting because they got a 78% and not an 80%.[[/labelnote]]
* _____†[[HarderThanHard LEGGENDARIA]][[labelnote:Explanation]]Beginning with an update in ''beatmania IIDX 21 SPADA'', the Spada†leggendaria series of Extra Stage boss songs received "†LEGGENDARIA" charts that are considerably harder than their Another charts. †LEGGENDARIA charts get their own entry on the songwheel, with the title in the format of "''(song name)''†LEGGENDARIA". Naturally, players took to suffixing various songs with "†LEGGENDARIA" as a joke, from [[BossInMookClothing "5.1.1. LEGGENDARIA"]] to [[SerialEscalation "Mei LEGGENDARIA"]]; one Vine video, [[http://vine.co/v/O721dAPjQOn NANDEMO LEGGENDARIA]] (that is, "Anything✝LEGGENDARIA") has someone printing out the ✝LEGGENDARIA logo and tacking it onto a bunch of things. As a side note, "leggendaria" means "legendary" [[GratuitousForeignLanguage in Italian]].[[/labelnote]]
* SUPER STAR -満- MITSURU[[labelnote:Explanation]]TAG's alternate persona: a shades-wearing, white-clad {{camp}}y LargeHam dancer.[[/labelnote]]
** She is my wife[[labelnote:Explanation]]The title is a meme in and of itself, and can be crossed over with the "waifu" meme. In addition, the song features a particularly memorable dance segment featuring MITSURU and several other BEMANI musicians.[[/labelnote]]
** [[MadLibsCatchPhrase ONLY ONE _____]][[labelnote:Explanation]]All of MITSURU's ''IIDX'' songs have all-caps genres beginning with "ONLY ONE". In addition, there's the album ''ONLY ONE ACT''.[[/labelnote]]
** Shocked dj TAKA [[labelnote:Explanation]]in the video for"SA.YO.NA.RA. SUPER STAR", dj TAKA's shocked face is shown for a few seconds at the end.[[/labelnote]]

[[folder: Video Game/Dance Dance Revolution ]]

* [[CowboyBebopAtHisComputer Xepher Tatsh]] [[labelnote:Explanation]]A ''VideoGame/DanceDanceRevolution'' player achieves his 800th AAA rank on "Xepher", a song by Tatsh, and posts a picture of it on his Facebook timeline. The official DDR Facebook page shares this image, but [[http://25.media.tumblr.com/tumblr_mbrvfjudaQ1qcj9w7o1_r1_1280.png erroneously calls the song "Xepher Tatsh"]][[/labelnote]]
* Bar hugging[[labelnote:Explanation]]A historic point of debate amongst ''DDR'' players is whether using the safety bar to improve one's balance and scores is fair or detracts from the game experience. At one point, less tasteful players referred to it as "bar raping".[[/labelnote]]

[[/folder]]

[[folder: Video Game/Sound Voltex ]]

* ''VideoGame/SoundVoltex''[='=]s heavy use of the filter knob feature has become a meme in and of itself.
** KFC[[labelnote:Explanation]]The code name for ''SOUND VOLTEX BOOTH'' is "KFC", as in Kentucky Fried Chicken. This meme mostly surged in popularity after ''SOUND VOLTEX BOOTH'' was cracked and made available for home use on certain websites.[[/labelnote]]
** 69%[[labelnote:Explanation]]In ''SOUND VOLTEX'', 70% is the minimum required gauge to clear. This time, percentages are in 1% increments. It's not only the new 78%, but [[FreudWasRight 69 also happens to be a particularly lewd number]].[[/labelnote]]

[[/folder]]

[[folder: Multiple / Other ]]

* Get It?! [[labelnote:Explanation]]People would notice the use of titles of songs in sentences, whether intentional or not.[[/labelnote]]
* DJ YOSHITAKA:
** 185 BPM[[labelnote:Explanation]]For some reason, DJ YOSHITAKA is quite fond of composing songs that are 185 BPM.[[/labelnote]]
** [[VideoGame/{{Jubeat}} FLO]][[VideoGame/ReflecBeat WER]] is infamous for its [[VideoGame/MiraidagakkiFutureTomTom excessive]] [[VideoGame/{{beatmania}} crossing]] [[VideoGame/PopNMusic over]] [[VideoGame/DanceMasters into]] [[VideoGame/DanceDanceRevolution other]] [[VideoGame/{{GITADORA}} BEMANI]] [[VideoGame/SoundVoltex games]]. Yes, all of those potholes are series that FLOWER[[labelnote:*]]though it had to be retooled into a rock remix for ''GITADORA'', and FLOWER [=REDALiCE=] Remix was added well before ''Sound Voltex II''[='=]s POLICY BREAK event, which allows for unremixed crossovers[[/labelnote]] has appeared in. Yes, that means almost EVERY active BEMANI series. (''[=BeatStream=]'' was released in 2014 with nearly no Konami original songs, thereby ruining the joke.) Just to add even more fuel to the fire, [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gcPQeSgA2Rw the 2013 BEMANI commercial plays FLOWER in the background]].
*** It gets worse. The ''Tenkaichi otoge sai Zenkoku issei nintei taikai'' event is a {{Crossover}} event between multiple companies' rhythm games--specifically, ''VideoGame/{{jubeat}} saucer fulfill'', ''maimai ORANGE'', ''VideoGame/TaikoNoTatsujin Kimidori Ver.'', and ''GROOVE COASTER EX''. The representative song from ''jubeat'' is "FLOWER". That's right, "FLOWER" even crosses over to non-Konami rhythm games!
** DJ YOSHITAKA's other "TRANCE CORE" and "HARD RENAISSANCE" songs are also quite infamous, due to being frequently crossed over and hyped up as boss songs. "JOMANDA" and "VALLIS-NERIA" are particularly infamous; the latter was anticipated to be crossed over into ''IIDX'' for many months, [[IKnewIt which did happen]], and both songs have elaborate videos despite the former being part of a series of boss songs that don't have new videos and the latter being an event song, while most event songs receive video overlays at best.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bybkLlNbaaw TWODEEXGOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOLD!]][[labelnote:Explanation]]The call of Michael a la mode from IIDX Gold's theme song, GOLD RUSH[[/labelnote]]
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1fPAdN3B248 DDR! X! TWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!]][[labelnote:Explanation]]A version adapted for DDRX2, with vocals by TAG, also known as SUPER STAR MITSURU.[[/labelnote]]
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3RXNlz3PCHU MUSIC FIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIITTTTTTTTTTT!!]][[labelnote:Explanation]]Another version for DDR Music Fit (roughly equivalent to Hottest Party 3), also sung by TAG.[[/labelnote]]
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BijUMQWpi_0&feature=related SENGOKU RETSUDEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEN!!]][[labelnote:Explanation]]the pop'n music version, also known as pop'n GOLD MOUNTAIN rush, introduced in pop'n music 18: Sengoku Retsuden[[/labelnote]]
** [[{{Mondegreen}} NOW LET'S DO THE]] [[http://forum.solidstatesquad.com/index.php?s=&showtopic=3174&view=findpost&p=104274 FDHDSFSDGFSGD]]
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FUxX7XLnu2w The]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=k8DVqRI2VE4 number]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JJpfObCW68M of]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vtfpybWWCso Red]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g_odQms1eaM Zone]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MgJ0yEZuKYM mixes]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nlnq2KsxMhg is]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MyBnA9rinjg getting]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cQ6EKqp1ULM a]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DCSVWr6YqSU tad]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aKQ-48wSkLc silly.]]
** It even gets it's own [[RedZoneRemixVid trope!]]
** Now we have Evans, KIMONO♡PRINCESS, Miracle Medicine & Blooming Feeling.
* [[SnowClone ONLY ONE _____]][[labelnote:Explanation]]TAG's SUPER STAR MITSURU songs in ''beatmania IIDX'' all have genres starting with "ONLY ONE". In addition, he has an album, "ONLY ONE ACT", and in ''beatmania IIDX 21 SPADA'', an unlockable judge font precedes all note judgements with "ONLY ONE" (e.g. "ONLY ONE GREAT", "ONLY ONE POOR").[[/labelnote]]
* VENUS[[labelnote:Explanation]]The alias of DJ YOSHITAKA and Sota Fujimori when they collaborate together. VENUS is infamous for their HoYay-filled songs and song art.[[/labelnote]]
** WIZAUCHUNAI[[labelnote:Explanation]]A common line in VENUS songs is ウィザウチュナイ (wizauchunai), which is [[{{Engrish}} meant]] to mean "Without you tonight".[[/labelnote]]
** Wow Wow VENUS[[labelnote:Explanation]]Yet another [[EarWorm exceptionally catchy song]] by VENUS, notable for its album art, which consists of DJ YOSHITAKA looking downwards, potentially at Sota's "VENUS", and also beause of...[[/labelnote]]
*** Wow Wow [[{{Mondegreen}} PE]][[FreudWasRight NIS]][[labelnote:Explanation]]As if VENUS's reputation for HoYay wasn't bad enough, this mondegreen showed up in the English-language community.[[/labelnote]]
*** Hitori ja JESUS[[labelnote:Explanation]]Another line in the song. It's debatable whether it's really "JESUS" or [[{{Mondegreen}} meant to be something else]].[[/labelnote]]
* '''P-P-PARANOIA!'''
* Is Lincle Link 5 over yet?[[labelnote:Explanation]]A BEMANI crossover event that infamously refused to end for nearly two years, when most unlock events do not last that long. More information [[http://vjarmy.com/wiki/index.php/Inside_Jokes#Lincle_Link here]].[[/labelnote]]
* Creator/{{Kon|ami}}[[FanNickname mai]] [[SarcasmMode Quality]][[labelnote:Explanation]]A phrase often used when Konami [[ObviousBeta cuts]] [[TheyJustDidntCare corners]] in developing their games, leading to things like poor translations, hilarious blatant typos, {{Game Breaking Bug}}s, and the like. Most often associated with BEMANI games, but could also be used for other Konami games as well.[[/labelnote]]
