Appearance of the Dancer
The dancer is a woman who is mainly a comic-styled superhero character. She has yellow hair and wears red lipstick. Her outfit resembles the flag of America because her dress has white and red stripes and her leggings are blue with white stars. Her top is mainly blue with yellow and red situated on the upper left shoulder. She is also wearing what is likely to be a belt that says POW! in a shock bubble.
Every time the dancer spins, a large WHOOSH! can be seen near her dress.
The background starts off with a simple POW! effect. Then, a reflection of the dancer appears behind her in the background, highlighting her facial features even more. The background becomes more and more comical, with comic shades and hues and comic dialogue (such as BOOM!, WIZZ , BAM!, ZOOM!, and SNAP!). Everything repeats over and over until the bridge.
The screen turns completely purple near the end, before the beginning of the instrumental part, in which everything repeats again. It ends with a white strip saying "The End?".

- Break Free is the fourth song by Ariana Grande in the series.
- It is also the third song by Ariana Grande in Just Dance 2015.
- The following mistakes can be seen in the lyrics:
- "Are" from the line "Know that I’ve become who I really are" is misinterpreted as "am".
- The "L" in "Like a deadly" is not capitalised.
- The word "Fever" is highlighted during the entire line "Fever (yeah babe)".
- The line "On the highway to hell" is misinterpreted as "On a highway to hell".
- The line "No more baby" is not present in the lyrics. Instead, the line "Fever" replaces it.
- Files for an unused Mashup were found amongst the DLC files of Just Dance 2015.
- Break Free is the only song by Ariana Grande to be a downloadable track.
- Break Free is the fourth free DLC, after Firework, Roar and The World is Ours.
- This is the second free DLC that is not by Katy Perry, after The World is Ours. However, this one is available everywhere, unlike The World is Ours.
- Break Free is not referred to as a free DLC in its gameplay video title, but it is still considered a DLC on Facebook.
- Break Free is the third DLC to be mentioned on a box cover, after Firework and Roar.
- It is, however, the first DLC whose coach is featured on a cover.
- Break Free is the sixth routine with a superhero theme, after Cosmic Girl, Never Gonna Give You Up, Alfonso Signorini (Eroe Nazionale), Holding Out for a Hero, and Best Song Ever.
- Break Free is the first DLC to be released after Just Dance 2014 that does not come with an avatar. Both I Luh Ya Papi and Papaoutai come with avatars, although Papaoutai’s avatar can be accessed in the Dancer Card Shop.
- Break Free is the first routine in the Just Dance series whose lyrics are highlighted in black.
- The PlayStation 3 version of You Make Me Feel... has black lyrics, too, but that is not the case with other consoles.
- On August 20, 2014, Break Free, along with the names of other artists, was leaked on the Polish Just Dance Facebook page.
- The coach in-game is portrayed by Ines Vandamme; however, on the Just Dance 2015 cover art she is portrayed by Aurélie Sériné.
- In the Wii version of Just Dance 2015, more moves are counted for than on other remote-controller consoles. Such extra counting occurs when the dancer spins and sifts out her right arm.
- Some subtle differences in the use of pictograms can be noticed when comparing the versions in Just Dance 2015, the old version of Just Dance Now, and Just Dance Unlimited:
- In the first game, these two pictograms are used for their related move, whereas the latter two games only use the second one.
- During the line "Fake it", the first version only uses the first pictogram, the second one uses the second pictogram and the third one features no pictograms at all.
- During the lines "You were better/Deeper", the first version only uses the first pictogram, the second one uses the first pictogram and then the Beta one found in the Just Dance Now servers and the third one features no pictogram again.
- During the lines "Like a deadly/Fever", the first version keeps using the second pictogram, the second one uses the Beta pictograms again and the third one still omits pictograms.
- Lavinia won in the Favorite Cosplay category for her cosplay of this song on the second Just Dance Awards. 
- In Just Dance Unlimited, when the Internet connection is absent, a banner with many menu icons from the service appear. Among them, Break Free’s appears, but the coach has darker hair and a lighter suit.
- Break Free is no longer available on Wii since January 31, 2019 due to the Wii Shop Channel closing down the previous day.
- The coach makes a cameo in the Just Dance 2020 Power Party teaser.
- Since the Community Remix for Break Free is made in the style of Just Dance 2016’s, participants are displayed in the background of the Classic routine instead of having their own screens in front of the regular Community Remix background.
- This makes Break Free the only Just Dance 2015 routine to have a Community Remix structured like this.
- On June 23, 2016, Break Free was free on Just Dance Unlimited due to the song having a Community Remix Contest in the service.
- This makes Break Free the first song on Just Dance Unlimited to have a Community Remix.
- In Just Dance 2017, the Community Remix version is free, but the original can only be played through Just Dance Unlimited.
