Perfect Reward Marcher's Diary

Tram & Pauline (トランとポリン Toran to Porin?) is the 16th rhythm game in Rhythm Tengoku. Two performers, Tram (the boy) and Pauline (the girl), are performing a magic transformation act while they jump on trampolines.



In this rhythm game, the player controls both Tram and Pauline's transformations. While Tram and Pauline bounce on their trampolines, they will crouch down for a high jump at certain points. The player must press the corresponding button at the very peak of this jump to transform them successfully. The player will transform the pair alternately or at the same time.


  • D-Pad: Transform Tram
  • A button: Transform Pauline

Timing Notes

  • Hit: The character successfully transforms and the performance continues.
  • Barely: The character will only partially transform, frowning. It will have a human figure with a fox muzzle, fox ears, and a short tail. A barely counts as a miss.
  • Miss: The character will not transform at all.

Rating Notes


  • "団長のゲキ" (Ring Leader's Manifesto)

Tram & Pauline (Title GBA)
  • On the title screen, there is an error where Pauline is colored orange instead of pink. This error was fixed in the arcade version.
  • This minigame is notably based on the kitsune of Japanese mythology. Kitsunes are foxes who can shapeshift at will.
  • Tram and Pauline's names are a pun on toranporin, the Japanese word for trampoline. Appropriately, their fan names are a pun on the English word.
  • Tram makes three cameos in later games:
  • This game, Polyrhythm, its sequel, Catchy Tune and its sequel have a similar controls/rhythm.
