Appearance of the Dancers
The dancers are a trio of superheroes, with white and black outlines.
P1 is Phone Girl. She has pink hair in a low ponytail, with an indigo handset tied in the front part of her hair, which has a yellow antenna-like design behind it. She wears a purple sleeveless form-fitting jumpsuit, with a red segment on her pelvic area. The jumpsuit also has a cyan belt-like segment on her waist, where an indigo telephone is resting on her left hip, with an indigo coil connecting to the handset. She also wears a lime green short cape on her back, and dark red knee-length latex boots with yellow circular buttons on the knees and black soles. She also wears a yellow eye mask and a pair of arm-length gloves with yellow circular buttons, with the left colored dark red.
P2 is Hairman. He has indigo hair styled in an excessively large pompadour in reminiscence of a hairdryer. He wears a lime green, form-fitting sleeveless top with yellow borders and a large V-shaped cleavage cut that reveals parts of his torso and lime green form-fitting leggings, with the pelvic area colored yellow. A dark indigo belt-like segment is seen on his waist, where a cyan and dark indigo hairdryer is holstered on his left hip. He also wears yellow knee-length latex boots with dark red lace-like markings and black soles. He also wears a pink eye mask and short cape, yellow armlets with a dark red rectangle on the surface and a single small yellow chain necklace.
P3 is Pool Man. His scalp is covered with a blue swim cap with a lime green streak on the middle, which has a yellow rubber duckie on the right side with a lime green bill. He wears an indigo form-fitting sleeveless suit, with a lime green U-shaped segment that has a dark indigo rectangular marking on the top center down to his chest. As opposed with the rest of the dancers, the leggings are cut short, revealing his bare thighs. He also wears very large and thick gloves, with the left glove indigo as well as indigo knee-length latex socks with dark indigo slip-on shoes. He also wears dark blue goggles, a light blue cape and has a belt full of large pink bar soaps on his waist.
The background is in the style of a comic book, in reference to the music video. It shifts between different paneled illustrations throughout the song. Interjections like "TZAAMM," "ZRAKZZZ," and "WIZZ!" appear in a retro font during certain action scenes.
The comic tells the story of three superheroes — the three coaches — and three different antagonists. First is a sentient television that sprouts arms while a man with popcorn is trying to use a remote control. Its panel reads, "WAVEMAN ATTACK!". The next antagonist is a female supervillain with green skin in a toadstool-themed costume. She grows from a mushroom being inspected by a woman in an urban street, and the background reads, "NEW ATTACK! AMANITA." Finally is an enormous monster made of spaghetti and meatballs that escapes and chases two individuals out from from a restaurant building labeled "PASTA." "PASTAMAN ATTACK!" is written on the panel.
In verse 1, Phone Girl defeats Waveman by entangling its limbs in old school analog telephone cords. She then takes selfies in front of the scene. In verse 2, Amanita hypnotizes Pool Man, then Hairman arrives and blows her away using a blowdryer, sending her spiraling into the night sky with a starburst. In verse 3, Pastaman drenches Phone Girl and Hairman in spaghetti. Pool Man sprays water from his palm and causes Pastaman to dissolve.
During the choruses, the story pauses to show a sequence introducing the three dancers. Hairman is first seen sitting in a salon under a vintage dryer chair and holding a blowdryer, followed by a close-up shot of him blowing smoke off the tip of the blowdryer. Phone Girl is in a gym, talking on a mobile phone and lifting a dumbbell in the other hand. She then poses with her dumbbell to take selfies on her phone. Lastly, Poolman jumps into a large polka-dotted inflatable pool. There is a large rubber duck similar to the one on his head to the right of the pool. All three dancers pose together in a secret laboratory filled with screens reading "BREAKING NEWS" and images of the villains.
At the end of the routine, the three protagonists messily eat bowls of spaghetti and pose sitting on the roof of a skyscraper while Phone Girl takes a photo. They all take a final victory pose floating in the middle of a city. Lots of confetti falls and a large crowd of silhouetted people and hands wave and cheer below.
There are 2 Gold Moves for each coach in this routine:
Gold Move 1 (P1): Raise your right arm as if you are taking a selfie and put your left arm on your hips.
Gold Move 1 (P2): Put your finger to your lips as if you are saying shush.
Gold Move 2 (P1/P2)/Gold Move 1 (P3):
- P1: Put your hand above your head and lean to the left.
- P2: Put your hand above your head and lean to the right.
- P3: Put your hands above your head and squat.
Gold Move 2 (P3): Jump with your hands above your head.
Without Me is featured in the following playlists:
Just Dance Now
- Celebrate Just Dance 2021!
- Own the Stage!
- Without Me is the second routine from an upcoming game, after 7 rings, to be added to Just Dance Unlimited for one week prior to the release of its game.
- Coincidentally, both routines were Trios.
- The moan and "Whoo" that can be heard before the second refrain, "liquor", "vodka", "on the rag", "bum on your lips", "f**k", "b**ch", "ass", "damn", "s**t", "b**tards", and "blow", are censored.
- Additionally, the following replacements are made:
- "Weed" is replaced with "me".
- "F**k that, c*m on your lips and some on your t*ts" is replaced with "jump back, jiggle a hip, then wiggle a bit".
- "This s**t" is replaced with "this is".
- "F**, blow me" is replaced with "stan, ... me" with the entire phrase appearing censored in the lyrics.
- The first set of ellipses for the line "this s**t and that s**t" is missing, resulting in the line reading "this and that ...".
- If the replaced and censored words are both taken into account, Without Me holds the record for most censored song in the entire series, with a total of 26 replaced and censored words.
- Additionally, the following replacements are made:
- Excluding those from routines based off films and video games, all coaches of Without Me are the eleventh, twelfth, thirteenth, and fourteenth coaches to have official names, after Jewelry Robin and Inspector Thomas Dance, Magma Princess, Frost Princess, Badass Clown, Feline Tamer, Romantic Harlequin and Ringmaster Madame Loyal, Rita, and Miguel.
- P2 makes a brief appearance in the trailer for Season 3: Virtual Paradise, along with Bailando.
- The routine has been recorded in more than one take, as shown by a cut that happens during the second chorus.
- There are a few misspelling errors in the pictograms names:
- The sticker album of Just Dance 2021 is based of the background of this routine.
- It also confirms the names of the characters in this routine.
- Playing Without Me twice in Just Dance 2021 unlocks a sticker of Amanita.
- On November 18, 2020, the official Instagram page for the mobile game Idle Miner Tycoon promoted the release of Just Dance 2021 by presenting a puzzle where followers were shown magenta silhouettes of cartoony renditions of the coaches and had to identify P3 from the puzzle.
- On the promotional picture for 舞力全开2020, P1 and P2s’ positions are flipped.
- Having a Just Dance Unlimited subscription in Just Dance 2021 unlocks a golden version of P1's avatar for use.
