Rhythm Rally (ピンポン pin pon "ping pong") is the 20th minigame that appears in Rhythm Heaven Megamix, and it's a story variant of Rhythm Rally from Rhythm Heaven. In this game, the player controls one of the Paddlers playing a table-tennis rally game together. In this variant, the Paddlers play a rally match on a flower with a ladybug.
A sequel later appears in Barbershop Tower under the title Rhythm Rally 2.
The paddlers are playing a table-tennis rally on a big flower, and you are playing as one of them. To hit the ball, you have to press A button to serve it to your rival. There are two speeds of served balls: normal, which bounce at a standard pace, and slow, which bounce higher.
Each cue goes at the same speed, but there are different intervals and mixes of them. Note that the fast ball set does not appear in this variant.

|Welcome to Rhythm Table Tennis! Our special today is the standard paddle. Regular, vanilla, nothing special about it whatsoever...except the price! How can you resist?!|
In the middle of the game, there will be two slow rallies in a row. You have to perfectly hit it the second time to collect the star.
