  • Setting certain center divas and their costumes can yield different visuals on the stage when playing with solo live performances:
    • The most common; a counterpart diva appears on multiple screens on the stage singing along to certain parts (R for Ranka's parts and S for Sheryl's part in the original audio, respectively). These duo combinations were alluded by the SNS conversations of the Super Dimension Countdown Live '17 event:
      • Ranka wearing Starlit Lovely/Starlit MilkyR or Sheryl wearing Purple GalaxyS [1].
      • Mylene wearing Dynamite Rock/Dynamite BeatR or Basara wearing Explosion Rock/Explosion BeatS [2].
      • KanameR or MikumoS wearing Strahl [3].
    • Basara will generate red holograms of a lion Gubaba on the stage [2] with every other outfit that is neither Explosion Rock or Explosion Beat.
  • Setting certain center divas and their costumes can yield different visuals on the stage when playing with unit live performances:
    • The diva on the left doing Ranka's choreography will do her signature Kira! pose when not paired with Basara.
    • The diva in the center doing Sheryl's choreography will wink at the play at the end of the song when the lighting fades when not paired with Basara.
    • Having either Sheryl in her Purple Galaxy/Crossover Moon outfit or Ranka in Starlit Lovely/Starlit Milky/Crossover Star will fill the stage with triangle holograms.
  • Deploying Brera's VF-27γ will change the quotes he normally says throughout the song.
