YMMV: Bemani
  • Accidental Innuendo: "Wow Wow VENUS", aka "Wow Wow PENIS". The album art doesn't help; it looks like Yoshitaka is staring at Sota's crotch.
  • Americans Hate Tingle:
    • Prim (the alias used for collaborations between L.E.D. and Mayumi Morinaga) has proven to be quite polarizing amongst Western fans due to MM's squeaky high-pitched vocals.
    • DJ YOSHITAKA's songs are rather popular amongst Japanese players, but are ill-received by Westerners.
    • BEMANI in general has not been particularly popular outside of Asia, as current BEMANI games are all Japan-only arcade releases with ports on mobile platforms if you're lucky, and arcades are Deader Than Disco in the Western world. The overshadowing popularity of American-developed music games such as Rock Band and Dance Central can make it a little hard to find BEMANI fans in the United States.
  • Awesome Music: Has its own page.
  • Base Breaker:
    • candii, from jubeat copious. People either are upset because there is a Vocaloid song, or really don't care.
      • Speaking of Vocaloid, GUMI appearing in Popn Music proper, rather than just being a vocals source.
    • Sound Voltex. Touhou arranges. Considering that Touhou is already notorious in video game and anime subculture, this is hardly surprising.
  • Ear Worm: This being a franchise with thousands of songs, you're bound to find a few.
  • Ho Yay:
  • Memetic Mutation: Has its own page
  • Nightmare Fuel:
    • Dance ManiaX 2nd Mix's DANGER screen. It's a skeleton on a red background that is reaching its arms out at you. Talk about an incentive to not fail...
    • "Survival Games -ZEUS Mix-"'s album art features Yoshitaka and Sota in a blue tint with creepy glowing blue eyes. The REFLEC BEAT plus version of the album art is even worse, showing Yoshitaka as a bald alien-like character.
    • "CLAMARE" has an album art featuring a screaming skull face on a hellish yellow, green, and purple background.
  • Periphery Demographic: VENUS has proven very popular amongst male players, because let's face it, their music is damn catchy. It doesn't even fall under Guilty Pleasure status.
  • Signature Song: "FLOWER" is practically the theme song of the BEMANI series due to its excessive crossovers, whether fans like it or not.
