  • The title, 321 STARS, is a reference to Sugimoto's birthday, March 21st (3/21).
    • Along with the other BEMANI songs crossed over to pop'n music 8, 321 STARS displays ♪♪♪♪♪ as the artist. This has never changed.
    • 321 STARS received an EX chart in pop'n music 9. This chart was carried to pop'n music 8 CS.
    • Counting jumps, 321 STARS' Single EXPERT chart has exactly 321 steps in it in DanceDanceRevolution, a reference to its name.
      • Unfortunately, due to jumps counting as one step for combo purposes in all future DanceDanceRevolution titles after EXTREME, this little in-joke is lost.
        • A similar joke occurred with 321 STARS in pop'n music with its NORMAL chart; if one achieved a full combo in pop'n music 8, it was 321 (MAX COMBO in earlier pop'n music game was the song's notecount total minus 1). Once the MAX COMBO got updated in later pop'n music games to include all of a song's notes, though, this joke was lost once more.
    • In the DanceDanceRevolution series, 321 STARS is titled as 321STARS.
    • 321STARS received a Double BEGINNER chart in DanceDanceRevolution ULTRAMIX2.
    • 321 STARS appears on beatmania IIDX 13 DistorteD CS, with new 7-key charts, as part of the BEMANI 10th Anniversary Commemoration.
