Karate Man 2 (カラテ家2 Karateka 2?) is the 42nd minigame in Rhythm Heaven. It is the sequel to Karate Man. Karate Joe continues his training to keep his kicking skill on.

Gameplay

Karate Man 2 DS gameplay

The game's main change is a new color set, with everything being red and yellow-ish orange. The only other change is that when a barrel kick is pulled off, Karate Joe will get a oddly realistic smiling face. The gameplay is nearly identical to the original. The pace is merely sped up and the patterns get more complicated.

Controls

  • Tap: Punch, continue to enter Hold
  • Hold Stylus: Crouch
  • Flick: Kick

Timing Notes

  • Hit: The player punches the object, sending it flying to the right and off the screen. For a barrel, the player punches it and kicks the bomb in it far away into the background, with Karate Joe smiling afterwards.
  • Barely: The player grazes the object, and it falls to the ground. If the barrel is broken, the bomb is only kicked a bit into the background. Karate Joe looks a bit embarrassed. A barely counts as a miss.
  • Miss: The player lets the object fly right by Karate Joe. For a barrel, it either flies right by Joe, or if punched, the bomb is not kicked and falls to the ground. Karate Joe looks surprised.

Rating Notes

Header

  • "The Master speaks..."

Try Again

  • "Focus on learning the basics first."
  • "You really messed up the ending."

OK

  • "Hm..."
  • "I don't know..."
  • "Good enough..."
  • "I guess that was all right."

Superb

  • "You've got the basics down!"
  • "You kept up with the rhythm well."
  • "Nice timing on the kicks!"

Epilogue

Appearances

Trivia

  • The face Karate Joe makes after a successful kick was originally from Remix 8 in Rhythm Tengoku. It returns in Rhythm Heaven Fever's Remix 9.
  • During the OK and superb epilogue screens, one of the Dazzles made a cameo alongside the Barista.
  • Like in the original, even if play has been perfect up to that point, missing the last pot will result in a Try Again rating result "You really messed up the ending.". A 'Barely' will not cause failure, however.
