Name

  • The original name of the game was allegedly Just Dance 5, as there are some placeholder images with "JD5" on them, and the main folder for the game is titled "jd5".
    • Additionally, on a website for a game conference, the game logo that was supposed to say "Just Dance 2014" is shown as "Just Dance 5" instead.
    • This was also found in the DLC files, shown within the Storage Settings on Xbox 360 as "JD5-DLC".

Demo

  • The game was originally supposed to have a demo, as there is an unused Extras square with the words "Not available in demo version" that can be found in the files of Just Dance Wii U.

Visual Effects

  • The game featured the same Gold Move sound and menu music as Just Dance 4.
  • The feedback icons received better animation in the final game. As seen in early previews for the game, the scoring text was completely still instead of "bouncing" like in the final game.
  • The obtained stars and Wiimote calibrations (Wii and Wii U versions only) did not originally "dance" in rhythm to the music.
  • Originally, the scoring would have featured a black bar between the player name and the actual scoring. This design idea ended up being used in Just Dance 2016, Just Dance 2017Just Dance 2018, and Just Dance 2019 albeit with multi-colored bars.
  • One of the default player names were going to be "Chipsy", as seen in an early screenshot.
  • Initially the star bar was different, it was with 2D bigger bars one above the other. They can be seen in the short gameplay thumbnail of Danse (Pop Version).
  • The color of the World Dance Floor was in a darker shade of purple.
  • Mojo coins had many different designs. 
  • Party Master Mode was originally going to have a different design, and some different captions for dance moves.
    • Note also that one of the captions was for the Alternate version of Call Me Maybe, which never appears in Mashups or Party Masters.
    • There was also a "Strike The Pose" button, like in Just Dance 4 Puppet Master Modes.
  • The original Mojo Coins were supposed to have different colors.
  • As already mentioned above, an unused Extras square can be found in the files of Just Dance Wii U.

Unknown Dancers

  • A male dancer in a red splatter suit with spikes and yellow shoes appears on the PAL boxart, on the UK website, and on the Soundless Quiz, but not in the game. Some people have unofficially dubbed him as a dancer for Treasure by Bruno Mars. In a picture there is the duet partner that confirm that its in beta version and its a duet song in JD2014. He also looks similar to the male dancer from Candy, and has been suspected to be a beta dancer for that.
  • A dancer with a disco ball head appears in Mash-Ups and makes a minor appearance in Gentleman, but is not seen with his own dance routine in the game. He is, however, an avatar that is available for purchase, and the most expensive thing to buy in the whole game for 500 Mojo coins. Some people unofficially dubbed him as the dancer for Just Dance by Lady Gaga as a Sweat or Extreme version. This was proven wrong later, due to the February DLC, the Sweat Version of the song, which showed a completely different coach. This assumption is probably based on the fact that the mirror ball is a recurring theme in the music video.
    • The dancer's pictogram color is usually light blue, but, in the C'mon Sweat Mashup, this same dancer has two differently colored pictograms, the first one is light blue and the second one is light green for unknown reasons. Another strange thing is that, in all the Mashups, there's always a disco ball in the middle of the background: this may refer to this unknown dancer.
    • In the game files, the song code name is simply "discoballman2".
      • He makes a cameo in the background of Happy, but with a magenta outfit instead of the blue and red one. A similar dancer is seen in the routine of Je sais pas danser with a blue shirt and pants.
      • He also appears in Just Dance 2015 and later with a magenta hat, when there is a new Community Remix contest.
      • He also makes a cameo in the Just Dance Harlem Shake.[1]
  • A male dancer wearing a hat with spikes, a blue jacket, a black vest, blue jeans, black shoes, and a black glove appears in the background of the Just Dance 2014 Website[2]. Like the red suited dancer, he doesn't appear in the game. He looks similar to the dancer from The Other Side, and has been suggested to be for an alternate mode for that song. However, Ubisoft confirmed he was a promotional figure, not an actual dancer.
  • An unknown female coach appears in the background of Blurred Lines; after exploring the files, it has been proven that she was meant to be for Man Down by Rihanna.
  • In the Announcement trailer, a male dancer with a yellow outfit black glove red headband appears very briefly-almost to the point where you can't see it-in the trailer. The same goes for a male dancer similar in appearance to Should I Stay Or Should I Go. The dancers appear at the same moment, around 0:54.
    • They do also make an appearance in front of the Green Screen on a computer (to the far right) in the Harlem Shake video[3] made by the Just Dance team and uploaded to their official YouTube account. This could imply that the two dancers were going to be in a Duet routine or a Battle between most likely unused songs. Some people have unofficially dubbed them as the dancers for Beat It by Michael Jackson or Paradise by Coldplay.

Avatars

  • Night Boat To Cairo was going to have an avatar for P3.[4]
  • P1 from Somethin' Stupid was originally going to have an avatar returning from Just Dance 4; however, it never appeared in the final release of the game.
  • A-Punk’s avatar from Just Dance 4 was going to make an appearance in the game as well, although, it was later removed.
  • Sympathy For The Devil originally had a different avatar.
  • The following avatars were different before the official release of the game:
  • There are two avatars who resemble Heidi and her grandfather, from the children book of the same name. The resemblance can be noticed by their names, which are "pastille_icon_heidi" and "pastille_icon_viejo" ("viejo" means "old man" in Spanish).
  • There are four unused avatars in the game files, which are called "ui_icon_cool", "ui_icon_crazy", "ui_icon_cute" and "ui_icon_funny" respectively.
