Scrapped Songs

Jump to navigation Jump to search

It is known that KONAMI often leaves unused data on their games. Sometimes, that data contains graphics, charts, and even song cuts of unused licensed and KONAMI original songs. This page will list every known song that has been scrapped at some point on arcade and console BEMANI games.

This page does NOT include any of the following information:

  • Unused songs that were later included in a later release of the same series (e.g. the CS songs in beatmania IIDX 20 tricoro that were later put in SPADA). For more information, see Later Appearing Songs.
  • Songs that were planned to be crossed over to a game but never appeared in a final release. For more information, see What Could Have Been.
  • Rejected FLOOR contest songs.

This page is under HEAVY construction. If you're going to add any songs here, please post proof on the Talk Page first.


beatmania 5thMIX -Time to get down-

    • Text references to this song and SKIN can be found on the beatmania 5thMIX data. Its placeholder genre is TECHNO [1].

beatmania ClubMIX

    • Seen in a flyer for the game. Its genre is BIG BEAT.

beatmania 7thMIX keepin' evolution

beatmania IIDX

beatmania IIDX 3rd style

The unused graphic data for the Tomoyuki Uchida song.
  • Unnamed Tomoyuki Uchida song
    • Unused graphic data exists for a song by Tomoyuki Uchida on the game disc. Its genre would have been FUSION, and may have been an early version of Ride on the Light (the genre for RIDE ON THE LIGHT (HI GREAT MIX) is POWER FUSION). At this point in time Tomoyuki was working as a sound data analyzer for various BEMANI titles (including 3rd style), and would not make his first musical contribution to the BEMANI series until KEYBOARDMANIA 2ndMIX a little over 7 months later.

beatmania IIDX 9th style

  • Unnamed Dr.LOVE remix / Ryu☆
    • According to Ryu☆ on his twitter, he submitted a remix of Dr.LOVE for 9th style, which was fully completed, but it was scrapped for his remix of Abyss instead. Apparently the finished Dr.LOVE remix is still in the beatmania IIDX "warehouse" to this day.

beatmania IIDX 18 Resort Anthem

Keith's title card.
  • Keith / DJ YOSHITAKA
    • The song title card for this song is present in the beatmania IIDX 18 Resort Anthem and 19 Lincle datas. It's speculated that is an early version of FLOWER as it shares the same genre.
  • Two Rainbow / Tatsh
    • This song originally was written for beatmania IIDX, as noted by Tatsh on his blog, but KONAMI (who he only refers to as a "certain music production company") rejected it. The song was later retooled into an iDOLM@STER image song for Miki Hoshii and became Day of the future, which went on to appear on the THE IDOLM@STER MASTER ARTIST 2 -FIRST SEASON- 03 Hoshii Miki album and later appeared as an insert song in Episode 13 of THE iDOLM@STER anime.

beatmania IIDX 19 Lincle

gloom's title card.
  • gloom / 猫叉Master
    • A title card for this song is present in the beatmania IIDX 19 Lincle data. Its genre is WORLD ELECTRONICA, and it is speculated to have been an early version of portal.

beatmania IIDX 28 BISTROVER



    • One of the songs only available at the DanceDanceRevolution location tests, along with BOYS. Unlike BOYS, MONEY never appeared again, though its data can still be found unused in the final game, as well as in its Internet Ranking Version; its music tracks are also intact in early versions of the original game. Since MAKE IT BETTER shares many musical similarities with MONEY, it has been speculated that it was composed as a replacement for it.

DanceDanceRevolution 2ndMIX

    • On the DanceDanceRevolution 2ndMIX location tests, I'M THE ONE was the second STEP BATTLE song. It was replaced by LET THEM MOVE on the final release [3].
      • The internal code for LET THEM MOVE is "imth", strongly suggesting (but not proving) that it's the same song.
      • The ending from DanceDanceRevolution 3rdMIX, titled ENDING ~GIVE ME A REASON~, has vocals samples that could have been part of I'M THE ONE. These samples could have been re-used just for this piece, or ENDING ~GIVE ME A REASON~ might be a short version of I'M THE ONE.

DanceDanceRevolution Solo 2000

    • Only the music preview for this song from Dancemania BASS #5 can be found on the Solo 2000 data [4].

DanceDanceRevolution 3rdMIX

    • While this song's graphics and charts can be found in the Dancing Stage EuroMIX data, many pieces of evidence hint BEATS LIKE THIS was planned to be included in DanceDanceRevolution 3rdMIX instead; PARANOiA Rebirth's Single DIFFICULT and Single EXPERT charts reference BEATS LIKE THIS' respective charts, and its chart file is listed alongside other ones from 3rdMIX in DanceDanceRevolution Karaoke MIX 2nd's data.
    • This song was available during the DanceDanceRevolution 3rdMIX location tests, but was later removed. Its graphics, charts and lyrics can still be found unused in the final game.
