Karate Joe is the third character to appear in in the Rhythm Heaven series (the first and second in the being Samurai Drummer and the Barista), the first to appear in a rhythm game, and has appeared in every game since.

Physical Appearance

Karate Joe is characterized by his pale white skin, big nose and balding head. He wears a black belt karate suit that matches the color of his skin. He wears no shoes. One of the the Dazzles (the one with glasses) appears to find him attractive, as seen in the OK and Superb rating screens of Karate Man 2 (DS).

Rhythm Tengoku

Karate Joe first appeared in Rhythm Tengoku as its first rhythm game, Karate Man. He very soon later appears in the first remix alongside the four other games in Set 1 other games. Much later, he reappears along with every other game in Remix 6. He would then appear in Karate Man 2 right after that. He then made appearances in the last two remixes, Remix 7 and Remix 8.

Rhythm Heaven

Karate Joe appears in many games in Rhythm Heaven. He first appears in Karate Man, notably being the last non sequel/remix game in the game. Right after that, he reappears in set 6's remix, Remix 6. Many games later, he appears in Karate Man 2, Karate Man's sequel. He also has parts in the last three remixes, Remix 8, Remix 9, and Remix 10.

Rhythm Heaven Fever

In Rhythm Heaven Fever, the karate fighter appears in many different games as cameo, however they are usually Easter-eggs. He first appears, as with the other games in the Rhythm Heaven series, in Karate Man. This rhythm game takes place right before the seventh remix, him appearing again. He gets parts in Remix 9, and gets a sequel minigame in Karate Man 2, right before the final remix, him appearing in that as well. This proves that he is the most recurring character in the Rhythm Heaven series.

Rhythm Heaven Megamix

In Rhythm Heaven Megamix, Karate Joe appears in Karate Man, Karate Man Returns!, Karate Man Kicks! and Karate Man Combos!, all of which as a playable character. He also Appears in Honeybee Remix, with a bee hat, and Right-Hand Remix, both appearances based on Karate Man Returns!. In Karate Man Senior, he makes a cameo in the try again screen.
