Airboarder (エアボーダー Eabōdā?) is the credits game in Rhythm Heaven and the 15th minigame in Rhythm Heaven Megamix. In this game, the player controls an Airboarder airboarding through a colorful land of blocks with two other airboarders and the Dog. It is unlocked in Rhythm Heaven after clearing Remix 6 and watching the credits. In Rhythm Heaven, the credits appear during this game, and the cast plays after the game. The ending theme song, That's Paradise, plays during this game.

In Rhythm Heaven Megamix, the game received a significant visual upgrade compared to most returning games. The airboarders became slimmer and have more rounded heads, and the 3D models and environments are much cleaner.


Airboarder gameplay
Airboarder 3ds gameplay

The player controls the third airboarder in line. The goal is to avoid blocks that are in the way of the track by ducking underneath the objects blocking their heads and the objects that will make them trip over. This is done by following the other two airboarders' rhythm and poses to better predict the timing for jumping and ducking.

Timing Notes

    The unused title card.

    There's an early title card screen for Airboarder which, oddly enough, was found in the European version only. Interestingly, the redesign in Rhythm Heaven Megamix make the Airboarders more rounded and slimmer, similiar to the early design.
