!!Tropes
* CrowningMusicOfAwesome: Justified, since most crowning musics are rather steppable.
* GameBreakingBug: The Assist Tick bug, which will crash Stempania if you have the assist tick on in the editor and you stop testing a chart. Happens randomly too, and only in the mode people would use the assist tick.
* GoodBadBug: [[http://www.stepmania.com/forums/showthread.php?t=24289 Negative BPMs and Negative Stops.]]
** Ironically, the only reason it was patched out was because it messes with scoring. The update immediately after the above [[http://www.stepmania.com/forums/showthread.php?t=24305 adds a much easier to use variant]] that also plays nice with the scoring system.
** This causes lots and lots of {{Suddenly Harmful Harmless Object}}. A wall of arrows or a set of holds might turn out to be mines - or alternatively, the mines you try to avoid turn out to be arrows, causing you to miss them. {{Trial And Error Gameplay}} follows.
** This has since become an AscendedGlitch with support for Warps in [=StepMania=] 5.
* MemeticMutation: Anything from the Bemani community partially overlaps into Stepmania communities.
** [=OMG...DID INSANE=]
** An True Hero

* MostAnnoyingSound: This whole game to people who aren't fortunate enough to know what the music sounds like behind your headphones. Rhythmic keytapping has been known to drive some people insane.
* SeriousBusiness: Why the [[LampshadeHanging Xoon Total Drama]] packs exist. Also, the Mystery Packs bring out the worst in people.
