Trivia

  • VEGA is the ACT 2 song of the OUR SPACE WAR (ぼくらの宇宙戦争) event of beatmania IIDX 20 tricoro. The name of the ACT 2 boss is Vega Rabbit, which is the only ぼくらの宇宙戦争 character that isn't shown in the beatmania IIDX 21 SPADA ORIGINAL SOUNDTRACK booklet.
  • VEGA is REDALiCE's first purely instrumental song in beatmania IIDX.
  • According to REDALiCE, VEGA took him three days and nights to complete.
    • He also notes he was surprised by the video featuring a "gentleman" instead of something cute, or a girl. Fukutomi WAVE makes note of this in her song comments.
  • Vega is the brightest star in the constellation Lyra, the fifth brightest star in the night sky and the second brightest star in the northern celestial hemisphere, after Arcturus. This star has been extensively studied by astronomers, leading it to be termed "arguably the next most important star in the sky after the Sun."
  • The man in the video of VEGA is called Galactica Gentleman Vega (ギャラクティカ紳士ヴェガ). According to the beatmania IIDX 21 SPADA ORIGINAL SOUNDTRACK booklet, he was originally a soldier and became an alien after being infected by a chemical substance from space.
    • His appearance is possibly a parody of Ameto's appearance in Express Emotion and Little Star.
    • Although he appears to be a boss character, he is part of the song's unique video and not a boss overlay; this means he does not react to player performance, and appears in VERSUS play (whereas other bosses do not).
    • Galactica Gentleman Vega's name is included as the answer to a question in beatmania IIDX 26 Rootage's The Bibliotheca of Mirage (蜃気楼の図書館) event.
  • VEGA was added to DanceDanceRevolution (2013) on January 28th, 2014, as part of the Nettou! BEMANI Stadium (熱闘!BEMANIスタジアム) event.
    • VEGA features its beatmania IIDX video (although slightly brighter in the last few seconds) in DanceDanceRevolution, which is full-screen and eliminates any on-screen dancers.
    • Since July 24th, 2014, VEGA can be unlocked via EXTRA ATTACK in DanceDanceRevolution (2014).
    • In DanceDanceRevolution A, it can be unlocked through EXTRA SAVIOR.
    • As of DanceDanceRevolution A20, it is available by default.
  • VEGA was the only song in the entire 熱闘!BEMANIスタジアム event to cross either to or from beatmania IIDX.
  • From DanceDanceRevolution (2014) onwards, VEGA appears in the DanceDanceRevolution (2014) folder instead of the (2013) folder.
  • VEGA is available in beatmania IIDX INFINITAS as part of the beatmania IIDX INFINITAS 楽曲パック vol.3.
