Dance Dance Revolution, or DDR, also known as Dancing Stage in some parts of Europe, is a Japanese rhythm game that is very popular among some furries and can often be seen at furry conventions. The newest arcade release is Dance Dance Revolution A3; console versions existed for PS1/2/3, Wii and Xbox/360, and more recently there is a subscription-based PC version called Dance Dance Revolution Grand Prix.

DDR at conventions[edit]

Tournaments for DDR have appeared at a number of conventions over the years. Even lacking a tournament, there is often at least a quick game setup at mostly every major convention. The largest and longest-running furry DDR tournaments are at Anthrocon and Midwest FurFest. Information on upcoming tournaments at conventions could formerly be found on DDRFurs.

DDR at Anthrocon 2006[edit]

After many years of successful DDR tournaments at Anthrocon, in 2006, Tiger of the Wind implemented a new tournament format to challenge the now more experienced DDR Furry community. The Cardmod format had top DDR Furries fighting it out while a variety of modifications were applied to arrows to increase the difficulty. There were even moments where DDR was played with no music, with a participant singing the song the words to the song being played, and even with a small white tiger plushie purchased by Tiger's mother. The competition was fierce but in the end Eternal became a two time winner of the AC DDR Tourney.
