The key to karate, as in all other" things, is rhythm. Now, let us throw some stuff at you for you to punch.
— Karate Man Description
Rhythm Heaven Megamix
1 Flow Ball
Karate Man ( is the 1st minigame and a short variation of カラテ家 Karateka) Karate Man from that appears in Rhythm Tengoku . In this game, you are playing as Rhythm Heaven Megamix Karate Joe who must punch the flying objects off-screen. The game scenery is pink with light-pink circles.
A sequel later appears in Honeybee Tower under the title Karate Man Returns!.
The game revolves around Karate Joe punching objects. As objects fly by the character, the player must press A to punch them off-screen.
Simple Tap Mode
Hit: Karate Joe will punch the object off-screen.
Barely: Karate Joe will wince as the object lands on the ground just in front of him. A barely counts as a miss.
Miss: Karate Joe will gasp as the object flies past him.
"You needed to focus on the basics."
"Your triple punches were poor."
"Try harder next time."
"You have skill in the fundamentals."
"Your triple punches were precise!"
"I'm ready to try again! You hear me, seagulls?! I'm ready!"
"My mind...is filled with stars."
" I could karate all day!"
Karate Memory #1
As a kid, I dreamed of being a soccer player. My father wouldn't hear of it. "You must master karate before you leave my house!" I still live in the basement.
To collect the first Skill Star, punch the soccer ball at the right moment later in the minigame.
This is one of the few games to have different rating screens in both versions, except for the Try Again rating, as it stays the same as the original, but with a slight change. It is switched to the right, rather than the left.
Like the Karate Man game in , this is the first game you play.
