YMMV: Bust a Groove
  • Awesome Music: This series is particularly notable for it's soundtrack, and is usually the first thing that comes to mind whenever the games are mentioned.
  • Broken Base: Some liked Shorty's new look in Bust a Groove 2, some didn't. Same with Kitty-N's new look and dance moves.
  • Ear Worm: Virtually every song in the series. Even after years of not playing the game, the songs will still pop up in your head.
    • "I'm the natural playboy of town. And I am blowing every mind, 'cause I'm one of a kind."
  • Hilarious in Hindsight: Considering the fact that Squaresoft merged with Enix, was it really any wonder that a series of rhythm mini games made it into Kingdom Hearts 2?
  • Ho Yay: For some reason, fans seem to prefer the Heat/Strike pairing over Heat/Frida, or Heat/Shorty.
  • Love It or Hate It: Dance Summit 2001.
  • The Scrappy: Let's just say that Tsutomu isn't very well liked in the fandom.
  • That One Level: Iga Base in Dance Summit. Especially if it's your first time playing.
  • They Changed It, Now It Sucks: How some fans felt about Dance Summit 2001.
    • Not too many people were pleased about some of the changes in Bust a Groove 2, either. Most infamous of these was Shorty's new look and dance moves. Some even stated that the songs weren't as memorable as those from the previous game.
