The dancer is a zombie who switches between two forms. The first one is shown at the beginning as a grey-haired, pale-skinned dancer. This dancer is wearing a ripped black suit, a red shirt, and black platform shoes. They also make an appearance in the song for a few seconds later in the song. The next dancer that appears stays for most of the song. They have a more green skin tone, and the suit turns faded blue. Their hair becomes pink. The dancer has glasses hooked onto the shirt. He also a scar on his face, arm, and leg.
The lead dancer is a female in a loose blue low-cut dress with a slit around her leg area. She closely resembles Gloria Gaynor. There are two backup male dancers: P1 wears black pants and a black shirt with a red vest over it and a blue beret.
P3 wears both black shirt and pants with red suspenders and a small blue top hat.
The dance starts off in a dark graveyard with a full moon and a green atmosphere. There is also thick mist. Tombstones of various shapes and sizes with different inscriptions (with one reading I Will Survive) are also visible, as are twisted trees. After the dancer transforms, the graveyard is colored with lights and the tombstones light up. The darkness is cleared and the path lights up in a checkered pattern. During the violin part, two violin players appear. At the very end of the dance, bats appear from the left side of the screen and chase the dancer away.

There are 2 Gold Moves in the Mashup, both of which are the same:
In the mashup, Firework’s Gold Move is removed. Additionally, there is no pictogram when it occurs.
This element would later be used for the original Gold Move 1 in Firework’s remake.
I Will Survive is the second routine in which the title of the song appears right before the routine starts. The first time it happened was in Cosmic Girl.
I Will Survive (On-Stage) has a glitch where P3 may disappear from the dancer selection menu.
In I Will Survive (On-Stage), P3's pictograms are slightly darker than P1's pictograms, unlike the other On-Stage modes. This is likely because of the moves during the second verse and outro where they stand behind P2 at the same time.
