Trivia

This song has different backgrounds, banners, jackets, or other related images. For more information, please see this page.
  • In the early drummania games, Waza's title was capitalized as WAZA.
  • In drummania, Waza's genre was FUSION.
  • In the original drummania, Waza had a different video, which showed a drummer with sunglasses instead of the chess pieces shown on the later video.
  • Despite that Waza actually runs at 130 BPM, Waza's BPM has always been incorrectly shown in the DrumMania series, displayed as 140 until drummania 3rdMIX, and as 117 from drummania 4thMIX onwards.
  • Waza, Across the nightmare, Depend on me, and JET WORLD are the only four songs to have been in every DrumMania arcade installment until V8.
    • Unlike the other three songs, though, Waza has yet to appear in the XG/GITADORA series.
  • Waza was added to pop'n music 10 on December 17th, 2003 via ee'MALL 2nd avenue.
  • Waza's ADVANCED and EXTREME charts were moved down to BASIC and ADVANCED respectively in DrumMania V4 Яock×Rock.
    • Also in DrumMania V4 Яock×Rock, Waza received a brand-new EXTREME chart, starting at Extra Level 12 by clearing Timepiece phase II as LEGEND STAGE. This chart was automatically made available in DrumMania V5 Rock to Infinity.
      • Incidentally, Jimmy Weckl wrote on his liner notes for Waza that he originally wanted to do a harder chart for Waza.
  • Before pop'n music 15 ADVENTURE, Waza's songwheel genre was Waza.
  • Waza has never been on a CS pop'n music release.
