The dancer is wearing a green raincoat with white buttons, a blue collar, a pink sash, and pink and blue cuffs. She is wearing polka-dotted boots that are colored blue and dark pink. She also has lime green hair. In Just Dance 2, she gets a green and teal silhouette (similar to the ones in Just Dance when she is doing the uncounted moves at the start of the bridge. In Greatest Hits/Best Of, this turns to a orange silhouette way different from the Just Dance 2 one. It also appears near the beginning of the song when there also is no counted moves. In the remake, she looks slightly more realistic, and she gains a faint glowing outline instead of the orange silhouette.

This routine takes place in front of a city with brightly lit buildings. It is raining heavily and puddles can be seen on the ground. Water droplets appear on-screen as if you were looking through a camera. Every time the dancer performs certain moves, lightning strikes the dancer.
Just Dance 3/Greatest Hits (Xbox 360)
In the Xbox 360 versions of those games, the rain drops make a different effect when touching the ground, and blue flashes appear on the city whenever "It’s raining men!" is sung.
In the remake, the effect of the rain has changed again, as it is more visible and rain drops appear more frequently.
There are 4 Gold Moves in this routine: Gold Moves 1, 2, and 3: Raise both of your hands up, outstretched. Gold Move 4: Quickly "swash" your right hand such that it almost makes contact with your left hand. This is the final move of the routine.
There are two errors in the lyrics: "She took off the heaven" appears as "She took off heaven", and "To rearrange the sky" appears as "To rearranged the sky". Both only appear the second time they are sung.
In the remake, they appear as "She took on the heavens" and "She rearranged the sky".
In Just Dance 2 and the remake, the color of the dancer’s outline is green and blue, while in Just Dance 3 and Just Dance: Greatest Hits/Best Of, the color of the outline is red.
The menu assets for the remake, however, apply a red outline on the coach.
In the original version, there are some cheering sounds at the beginning and at the end of the routine. There is also a blue and green glow around the dancer when she performs complicated moves that are not counted before the bridge. Both are removed in the remake.
Also, the dancer fades away almost immediately in the remake (and is struck by lightning when she does so) rather than walking away like in the original version.
From April 28, 2016 to May 11, 2016, It’s Raining Men was a VIP exclusive on Just Dance Now.
In the Wii versions of Just Dance: Greatest Hits/Best Of, the coach no longer appears with a lightning orb effect. The sound effect still plays, however.
This song is the first one to appear in the menu of Just Dance 2, making it the first song to contain a Gold Move.
In Just Dance 2, the background is still animated even after the routine ends.
If you look closely at the back of the Just Dance: Best Of back cover, you can see the name of this song despite it not being available in the game.
