Rockers 2 (ロッカー2 Rokkā 2?) is the 49th minigame of Rhythm Heaven. It is the sequel to Rockers. Rockers 2 newly features the use of the R or L Trigger (R being used if the player is playing right-handed, and the L being vice versa) on the Nintendo DS to "bend" notes, similar to that of a whammy bar.


Rockers 2 gameplay

The gameplay is merely slightly more complex than the original as you have to use the new cue added in this gameplay. Press R or L Trigger (R being used if the player is playing right-handed, and L being used if the player is playing left-handed or vice versa) on your DS console to "bend" notes during the high note routine while flicking strum guitar and tap it to tune its strings after finishing "bending."


  • Tap: Prepare strum/mute guitar strings
  • Flick: Strum guitar
  • L/R Trigger: "Bend" strummed notes

Timing Notes

  • Hit: White bolts will appear around the student Rocker.
  • Barely: Blue tears will appear around the student Rocker and the strum will be slightly off tune. A barely counts as a miss.
  • Miss: Yellow vines will appear around the student Rocker and the strum will be very off tune. J.J. Rocker will stumble over.

Rating Notes


  • "Audience reaction:"

Try Again

  • "You didn't play off each other well."
  • "That performance didn't really gel."
  • "You didn't play in sync too well."


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


  • "That was a call to AWESOME."
  • "You two were in perfect sync!"
  • "That last one rocked!"




  • J.J. Rocker double taps the guitar after each strum during the first few verses of the song, but it is not required to copy from it.

The four songs in the Technical Course of the Guitar Lessons use the note bending from this game.

  • Rockers 2 is the only rhythm game to feature a control method aside from tapping and flicking as well as the only game using a button in Rhythm Heaven. It is also the only game to use the L and R buttons in the entire Rhythm Heaven franchise.
  • This is one of the four sequels in Rhythm Heaven to have a new cue and practice section, the other being Fan Club 2, Rhythm Rally 2, and Fillbots 2.
  • There is an unused sprite that was supposed to be used for the Superb screen.
