Song Connections / Remixes
- A slightly extended version of EGOISM 440 was performed at the first day of The 6th KONAMI Arcade Championship BEMANI LIVE.
- EGOISM 440 is one of the EXTRA STAGE songs of the Replicant D-ignition event of DanceDanceRevolution (2014). It could be played after obtaining all five orbs, by getting at least a AA rank on the EXPERT charts of the previous five Replicant D-ignition songs (chaos eater, Destination, HAPPY☆LUCKY☆YEAPPY, Samurai Shogun vs. Master Ninja, and Sand Blow). By obtaining EGOISM 440's orb, the player will immediately access MAX.(period) as the ENCORE EXTRA STAGE.
- Note that by playing EGOISM 440, the player loses all the orbs, regardless of clearing the song or not.
- From August 6th to December 23rd, 2015, EGOISM 440 could be unlocked via the EXTRA ATTACK unlocking system, after unlocking the five previous Replicant D-ignition songs. Note that the SURVIVED BONUS meter had to be filled on BEGINNER, then BASIC, DIFFICULT, and then finally EXPERT.
- EGOISM 440's CHALLENGE charts could be unlocked via EXTRA ATTACK after unlocking Over The “Period”'s EXPERT charts and MAX.(period)'s CHALLENGE charts.
- From December 24th, 2015 onwards, EGOISM 440 has been automatically unlocked for all players.
- EGOISM 440 is the third song in DanceDanceRevolution to have a Single CHALLENGE chart rated Level 19, after Valkyrie dimension and PARANOiA Revolution.
- It is also the fourth song in DanceDanceRevolution to have a Double CHALLENGE chart rated Level 19, after POSSESSION, Valkyrie dimension, and PARANOiA Revolution.
- EGOISM 440's CHALLENGE charts currently have the third highest notecounts on non-long version songs of their respective playing styles:
- EGOISM 440's CHALLENGE charts are also the first charts in the entire DanceDanceRevolution series to have GROOVE RADAR values above 200. The Single CHALLENGE chart has a STREAM value of 226, while the Double CHALLENGE chart has 270; both exceed 888's value of 200.
- EGOISM 440's Single BEGINNER chart is the fourth BEGINNER chart in the DanceDanceRevolution series rated Level 9, after Fascination ～eternal love mix～, Valkyrie dimension, and osaka EVOLVED -毎度、おおきに!-.
- After being re-rated in DanceDanceRevolution A, EGOISM 440's Single EXPERT chart is the fourth one rated Level 18.
- EGOISM 440's title might be a homage to PARANOiA by 180, due to referencing the main BPM of the song, and that egoism and paranoia are both thought processes that have a overly high level of self-importance.
- EGOISM 440's BPM is displayed as 55-440 in accordance with the song's title, while it actually reaches up to 880 BPM.
- Reaching up to 880 BPM, EGOISM 440 is tied with ENDYMION for the fifth highest BPM at any point in all BEMANI games, beaten only by Gate of Atlantis' 888 BPM from SOUND VOLTEX IV HEAVENLY HAVEN, gigadelic(m3rkAb4# R3m!x)'s 916 BPM from SOUND VOLTEX III GRAVITY WARS, 超☆超☆光☆速☆出☆前☆最☆速!!! スピード★スター★かなで's 999 BPM from SOUND VOLTEX IV HEAVENLY HAVEN, and Tohoku EVOLVED's 1020 BPM from DanceDanceRevolution X3 VS 2ndMIX.
- EGOISM 440 has a unique video. However, it's in the background of a recolored version of the light blue Replicant D-action background dance stage and is not full-screen.
- This video reuses five DDRMAX-EXTREME background movies.
- At one point in EGOISM 440's video, a portion of Valkyrie dimension's Replicant D-action ENCORE EXTRA STAGE introduction video can be briefly seen.
- The background movie at the end of EGOISM 440 is the same one used in the beginning of Over The “Period”.
- EGOISM 440 ranked #1 in the BEMANI Fan Site CHECK!SONGS Monthly Ranking list for April 2015.
- The song then became available for download via the 着信★うた♪ service. It is titled as EGOISM 440(フル).
- At Level 19, EGOISM 440's Single CHALLENGE chart is the highest rated DanceDanceRevolution chart that any player has achieved a Perfect Full Combo for.

It should always make new foundations.
Jacket Design Information
A deep crimson eye shining bright red. A rose reflected in the eye.
My growing desire for that person blurs into tears...
My pure white skin, like a porcelain vessel, is eaten away by the pattern of the rose, because I am thinking of that person day in and day out...
When I was drawing this jacket, I was thinking of such things~ ^^
I feel the woman's obsession in the form of darkly-fringed mascara that bleeds due to the shedding of tears!
