- Clear Lamp – Earned when you clear a song via normal methods.
- Red Lamp – Earned when you clear a song with “Life 4” enabled, where 4 or more misses will fail you.
- Blue Lamp – Earned when you “Good Full Combo” a song, which means 0 misses.
- Green Lamp – Earned when you “Great Full Combo” a song, which means 0 goods or misses.
- Gold Lamp – Earned when you “Perfect Full Combo” a song, which means 0 greats, goods, or misses.
- White Lamp – Earned when you “Marvelous Full Combo” a song, which means 0 perfects, greats, goods, or misses.
