Finals & Boss Battle

The finals and boss battle stage are each intertwined between the live performances. Ten songs are selected to use randomly, and each match will use one song from the pool so that no match will use the same song twice.

The finals will match the first and second winners of preliminaries, where the champion will fight the DJMAX developer representative for the final prize: an NB Ranger dakimakura.

The 4B final match sees a player (name withheld at his request) coming through the finals and fighting DJMAX RESPECT director juking. The player made a mistake by not customizing his gear setting, he instead using Tsuyosa's setting for the 8B boss battle.

BOSS: 7 Sequence
WINNER: Tsuyosa

Of all the matches, the 8B boss battle is the most exciting one as it cannot be predicted until the latter half of the match. Tsuyosa used a manual Fever and initially left behind 7 Sequence in terms of combo count. But then 7 Sequence breaks his combo and Tsuyosa used the moment to catch up. Eventually, Tsuyosa emerges victorious with a pretty slim margin over 7 Sequence.
