Trivia

This song has different backgrounds, banners, jackets, or other related images. For more information, please see this page.
  • PARANOiA marks Naoki Maeda's debut in BEMANI.
    • According to Naoki, he was forced to make PARANOiA under many restrictions.
  • PARANOiA is the first and only KONAMI original introduced in DanceDanceRevolution, available as a EXTRA STAGE song for HARD MODE.
  • Much like other songs of the PARANOiA series, PARANOiA's artist, 180, is a reference to its BPM.
    • However, PARANOiA's real BPM is not a constant 180 BPM, instead it changes from a minimum of 169.81 to a maximum of 183.67 BPM.
    • According to an interview with Tatsh, Naoki used 180 as the artist name for PARANOiA since it was considered taboo at the time in Japanese video games for a video game composer to use their real name for artist credit. Naoki was later asked by one of the directors about who was 180, and suggested to Naoki to use "NAOKI" as an alias (which was later used starting in DanceDanceRevolution 2ndMIX with BRILLIANT 2U). (The interview can be seen here, second set of questions).
  • The robot in PARANOiA's background and jacket is based on Tetsushin Kongouji (金剛寺鉄心), one of the playable characters from KONAMI's arcade game FIGHTING武術 (FIGHTING WU-SHU), which Naoki also worked on.
  • PARANOiA is Hirotaka Ishikawa's, director of several DanceDanceRevolution CS titles, favorite BEMANI song [2].
  • PARANOiA received brand new Single MANIAC and Double ANOTHER charts in DanceDanceRevolution Internet Ranking Version.
  • PARANOiA received a Double MANIAC chart in DanceDanceRevolution 4thMIX.
  • PARANOiA is the only song in the DanceDanceRevolution series to appear in almost every DanceDanceRevolution title, being absent only in DanceDanceRevolution 5thMIX and DDRMAX -DanceDanceRevolution 6thMIX-.
  • PARANOiA received a unique video in DanceDanceRevolution EXTREME2. This video was carried to the arcade releases in DanceDanceRevolution SuperNOVA. This video is played full-screen and eliminates any on-screen dancers.
    • In DanceDanceRevolution A, a video based on its original DanceDanceRevolution animations is shown when PARANOiA is played from the DDR SELECTION folder.
      • However, PARANOiA's background artwork is replaced by a textless, desaturated version of PARANOiA MAX ~DIRTY MIX~'s background, which was previously seen in DanceDanceRevolution 5thMIX's gallery mode.
  • PARANOiA's banner was updated in DanceDanceRevolution X.
  • PARANOiA(X-Special) is one of the X-Special EXTRA STAGEs in DanceDanceRevolution X, which can be played from February 12th, 2009.
    • To play PARANOiA(X-Special) in DanceDanceRevolution X, you must get a AA or better on any song in the DanceDanceRevolution folder before the FINAL STAGE.
    • As of October 1st, 2009, PARANOiA(X-Special) has been unlocked for normal play.
