- Dueling Games: With both Just Dance and Dance Central; motion control dance game franchises that are quite popular in the U.S. Its more of a direct competitor with Dance Central as it was also a Kinect launch title.
- Follow the Leader: Made in the wake of the runaway success of Just Dance.
- Keep Circulating the Tapes: Kind of. The arcade version's online service was terminated on August 31, 2016, which would've made the game unplayable due to requiring an online connection, but Konami sent out kits that unlock all content and allow offline play.
- No Export for You: The arcade version, especially due to its extensive use of Japanese licenses, had previously been locked to Japan and a handful of Asian Pacific countries. Since the offline patch, however, the game has been brought over to Round 1 centers in the United States.
- Portmanteau Series Nickname: In Japan, the game is known as ダンエボ (dan'ebo), or "DanEvo".
