  • Barack Obama bought Just Dance 3, not only for his daughters, but because of its universal appeal. Now that's some presidential approval. Ubisoft was proud of it.
  • "The Final Countdown" from 4, you can't get as much awesome than a couple of wrestlers in spandex dancing to 80's metal.
  • The alternate version of "Tribal Dance" finally gives you an excuse to dance with a sword!
  • The fact that Just Dance 2014 finally included the song of the same name by Lady Gaga resulted in much rejoicing by the fandom.
    • The same game also started the trend to include her official choreographies as alternate routines.

  • Sonic the Hedgehog joins in with Just Dance 2014 at E3 2013!
  • The "Ghostbusters" dance involves three Ghostbusters and Slimer. Towards the end of the song, Slimer actually possesses the other dancers and takes over the routine, dancing them around like puppets.
  • "Holding Out for a Hero" from 2015. Those background effects look amazing.
  • The Extreme versions of "Animals", "Circus" and "Scream & Shout". Not only do they look awesome, but they are all really, really challenging.
  • Carrie Swidecki. This woman holds the record for the longest videogame marathon on a dancing game, by playing Just Dance 2015 for a whopping 138 hours! Doubles as a Heartwarming Moment, as she did so to raise money for charity.
  • The routine for Fleur East's "Sax" from 2018 is amazing. Doubly so since this is a song fans have been requesting for a while now!
  • The games actually acknowledge cultures from all around the world by featuring songs and dance styles from different countries. While most choreographies are based on contemporary dance and hip hop, there have also been routines inspired by:
    • African dances (The Extreme versions of "Where Have You Been","Papaoutai" and "Sorry").
    • Brazilian samba ("Mas Que Nada", "Carnaval Boom").
    • Arabian belly dancing ("Fatima", "Lean On" alternate).
    • Indian dances (The alternate versions of "Fancy" and "Cheap Thrills").
  • Even if the design falls into Uncanny Valley, it's pretty cool that, for 2019, they managed to incorporate claymation into a routine.
  • The E3 presentation for 2019 performed by the Fresno State Bulldog Marching Band performing a medley of (in order of appearance): "Narco" by Blasterjaxx and Timmy Trumpet, "Havana" by Camilla Cabello, "Sugar" by Maroon 5, "Finesse (Remix)" by Bruno Mars ft. Cardi B and "I'm Still Standing" by Elton John all confirmed to be in the game.
  • How did Ubisoft decide to celebrate ten years of Just Dance within Just Dance 2019? By taking the routine for "Sugar" and putting in as many past coaches as they could–for example, the coach for "California Girls" from 3 is dancing with the coach for "Cake by the Ocean" from 2017.
