Air Rally (バドミントン Badominton, "Badminton") is the third minigame that appears in Rhythm Heaven Megamix. It is a story variation of Air Rally from Rhythm Heaven Fever. In this game, Baxter & Forthington fly above a desert-like area, with a slow pace song playing in the background.
A sequel later appears in Honeybee Tower under the title Air Rally 2.
The player controls Baxter the dog in the red airplane. Forthington starts off by serving the shuttlecock at Baxter. The player must keep hitting it back by pressing A button in constant beats of two. Also, Forthington might signal the rhythm to change to a slow beat of four. Then later on return to the normal two beat after counting.
- Normal rhythm: Hyah, hyah, hyah, hyah... (Nya, nya, nya, nya...) A standard slow rhythm.
- Altered: Bu-bum bum bum! (Lob shot) A slowed down beat of fours.
- Back to normal: Two, Three, FOUR! (Two, Three, Go!) The rhythm reverts to normal again. Only said after a lob shot is done.
Notice that hitting shuttlecock from changing distance to farther and farthest do not appear in this variant, except to a far away one that appears at the end of the game.
- A: Swing racket (hit shuttlecock)
Simple Tap Mode
- Tap: Swing racket (hit shuttlecock)
- Hit: The player hit the shuttlecock back at Forthington.
- Barely: The player hits the shuttlecock, but it is knocked to the side, and Forthington serves another one. A barely counts as a miss.
- Miss: The shuttlecock flies past the player, and Forthington serves another one.

|Ever since Forthington started using this racket, I haven't been able to keep up with him! I can't believe how much better he's gotten--I must practice...and maybe buy a new racket!|
