"Take On Me" by a-ha is featured on Just Dance 3, Just Dance Now, and Just Dance Unlimited.

Appearance of the Dancer

Just Dance 3

The dancer is a young man with purple hair. He is wearing a golden bandanna, a red and blue varsity jacket, black pants, and black and blue shoes.


His remake showcases him in a darker shade, and his face is no longer as visible in the original.


Just Dance 3 (Wii/PS3)

The background is red, blue, and purple, in a circular gradient. In the middle are some slow spinning triangles, which are white and are briefly transparent. Around are some white flashing lights, and slow steaming smoke. The reflection of the score gauges and the dancer are seen on the floor.

At the end, the dancer is "absorbed" by the triangle with a swirl animation.

Just Dance 3 (Xbox 360)

In the Xbox 360 version, the lights are differently animated, and they have different colors (purple on the left and red on the right). The floor is covered in smoke to make the triangle look floating.


In the remake, the background looks slightly darker, and the coach simply fades away at the end instead of getting "absorbed".


Take On Me has an unlockable Mashup on Just Dance 3. It features only male dancers.


Gold Moves


There is 1 Gold Move in this routine:

Gold Move: Spin in a counterclockwise direction with your arms open out.


There is 1 Gold Move in the Mashup:

Gold Move: Throw both arms out. (Wake Me Up Before You Go-Go

Shout-Out Lines

There are 3 Shout-Out Lines in this routine, all of which are the same:

All Shout-Out Lines: “Take on me”

Appearances in Mashups

Take On Me is featured in the following Mashups:


  • Feel This Moment by Pitbull and Christina Aguilera samples a part of this song.
  • In the Mashup’s icon in the Specials menu, the dancer for Crying Blood can be seen, despite she does not appear in the Mashup.
    • However, on the Xbox 360, she is replaced by Wake Me Up Before You Go-Go (who actually makes an appearance in the Mashup).
    • Also, Crazy Christmas is in his C2 form instead of his C3 form, as it is in the original square. This probably happens because only C2 appears in the Mashup.
  • The Mashup only features male dancers, making it the first all-male Mashup. The second such Mashup was It’s My Birthday’s, followed by the Mashups of You Spin Me Round (Like a Record) and Macarena.
  • The dancer appears in the background of Teenage Dream on a poster.
  • In the Mashup, the Gold Move done with Wake Me Up Before You Go-Go was not originally a Gold Move.
    • Instead, Dagomba’s original Gold Move was removed in its place. The reason is unknown.
    • Additionally, Hey Ya has two pictograms more than in the original routine. They were made exclusively for the Mashup.
  • In Just Dance 3, the dancer swirls away in a circle at the end of the routine. However, this is not the case in the remake. Instead, he turns black and the whole scene fades away.
  • When the Mashup is viewed on the menu when it has not been unlocked yet, Wake Me Up Before You Go-Go replaces Crying Blood on the icon.
  • On the Xbox 360 version, the preview audio starts at the first instrumental part rather than at the chorus (unlike on other consoles and in following games).
