Karate Man 2 (カラテ家2,Karateka 2?) is the 37th game in Rhythm Tengoku and a sequel to Karate Man. It plays the exact same way as the first one, however, there are major tempo changes in the song to throw you off track.
In this game, it plays the same song like the prequel, but there are major tempo changes during the song that can throw you off track, and even slowing down the flying objects' tempo or even faster them up.
Hit: Karate Joe will punch the object off-screen. The Flow bar will increase by one.
Barely: Karate Joe will wince as the object lands on the ground just in front of him. The Flow bar will decrease by one. A barely counts as a miss.
Miss: Karate Joe will gasp as the object flies past him. The Flow bar will deplete completely. When punching a rock, if the Flow bar is not high enough, Karate Joe will gasp as the object falls to the ground and his fist will be colored red.
"師匠のおことば" (Master's words)
"きほんが できてませんね。" (The basics are not set.)
"速いのに ついていけてないな。" (You can't follow the fast parts.)
"スローで 乱れてるね。" (The slow parts are in disorder.)
"あそこは おさえてほしかった．．．" (We wanted you to be able to do that part...)
"まぁまぁ、 かな。" (OK, I guess?)
"よしと します。" (You did your best.)
"速いのは バッチシだね！" (You're right on on the fast parts!)
"スローのとき おちついている！" (You're steady during the slow parts!)
"超スローでも どうじてない！" (You didn't get perturbed by the super slow part!)
"テンポが なんだー！！" (What's with the tempo!!)
"ま、さておき。 ごはん 食べよう！" (Well, aside. Let 's eat rice!)
"ざっと こんなモンだぜー！！" (Roughly, it's like this, baby!!)
Karate Man 2 also appears in the 2P mode of Rhythm Tengoku (Arcade) where it is referred to as Karate Man 2 2P (カラテ家2 2P,Karateka 2 2P?). It plays the same as the 1P version, except it has a split screen display to accommodate the second player. As a consequence of this design, the flow bar remains off screen.
