Samurai Slice (悪霊退散 Akuryou Taisan?, "Dispelling Evil Spirits") is the 19th minigame in Rhythm Heaven Fever and the 105th minigame in Rhythm Heaven Megamix. It features the wandering samurai. In this game, you are slicing up demons who are spawning from a dark portal, in order to save the Lost Pinwheel of a little boy/girl. This game has a sequel, called Samurai Slice 2.

Gameplay

SS fever gameplay
Samurai Slice M gameplay
In this game, the player must slice a horde of demons, or evil spirits, as they appear, in order to protect the peaceful village. Dark demons will appear and the player must slice them with the sword at the correct time to vanquish them, by pressing A. Occasionally, a vortex of demons will swarm at once and the player has to perform a whirlwind slice, by pressing A and B at the same time, which will make the samurai thrash his sword rapidly.

You use the normal slice for the red demons, but the green ones come out faster, so you have to use the whirlwind slice. The Red demons can also vary in size, but this is just a distraction. There is also a story, which pops up on to the screen mid-game to obstruct the game's visuals.

Gameplay Features

Our Story So Far...

Various elements during the story segment can be affected negatively if the player's timing is off. When a barely occurs, the characters and texts will tilt slightly. When a miss occurs, the characters and text tilt drastically, reaching the edges of the screen. During the evil spirit's story segment, additional spirits alongside it appear if either a barely or miss occur.

Wandering Samurai Dialogue

At the end of the story segment during the rhythm game, the Wandering Samurai will either say "I will see justice done" or "Don't worry."

To Be Continued...

At the end of the rhythm game, the words "To be continued..." appear. If the player slices at them four to five times, the words will be cut in half.

From Superb to OK

Like some other rhythm games, missing the last hit will result in an OK regardless of how well the player performed.

Controls

  • A: Slice
  • A+B: Whirlwind slice

Timing Notes

  • Hit: The samurai slices the evil spirit in two. When facing a horde of spirits, they are easily cut up by his whirlwind slice.
  • Barely: The samurai's blade grazes the evil spirit and it flies away. A barely counts as a miss. When facing a horde of spirits, the samurai cuts them up as normal though this will count as a miss if the initial hit was a barely.
  • Miss: The evil spirit attacks the samurai and knocks him over. When facing a horde, each latch onto the samurai and bite him.

What makes a ghost steal a pinwheel? Malice? Greed? Loneliness? Did the ghost just want to play? Well, stealing is ALWAYS wrong, kids.

Skill Star

There is a second horde of green demons before the story starts, you have to use the whirlwind slice to silce them out and perfect on the last one in right time to collect the star.

Trivia

  • Jj
    In the Korean version of Rhythm Heaven Fever, the three characters featured in this rhythm game have their traditional Japanese clothing altered to resemble Korean traditional clothing.
    • Also, in the Superb epilogue screen, the colors of the background were changed from red and yellow to blue and cyan, to cover up the Rising Sun colors.
  • This is the only minigame from the Samurai Slice series that returns in Megamix. The only minigames that didn't return is Samurai Slice for GBA and DS.
  • This is the only minigame that keeps "To be continued..." sign, though its sequel does not appear so it would have "The End" instead, but it is possible that it is prequel of Super Samurai Slice in Megamix.
  • In Rhythm Heaven Fever, the child in blue clothing is referred to as Pinwheel Boy in the rating notes screen. In Megamix, his name was changed to Pinwheel Girl. This was also reflected in European version of Fever.
