The Bandleader (ボーカル Vocal?), also known as The Sax Player (サクソフォン Saxophone?), appears in Frog Hop and Jumpin' Jazz in Rhythm Heaven and in Rhythm Heaven Megamix.

Physical Appearance

The Bandleader looks very similar to the Frogettes he leads. He is a light blue bipedal frog with a lighter blue belly. He wears dark blue tights with a red stripe. He has long blue arms, a round face, and two tall eyes.


The Bandleader can sing and knows how to play the saxophone. The Rhythm Item for Frog Hop in Rhythm Heaven Megamix, a microphone, says that dancing, singing, and playing instruments is how the frog family makes its money. Jumpin' Jazz's rhythm item, a saxophone, implies that the Bandleader dropped his sax in a pond once.

The most important detail about him, however, is that he actually introduces the player to Rhythm Heaven, meaning he is the first character the player will meet in a playthrough upon creating a save file. He tells the player about flicking and congratulates them for beating Remix 6 much later in the game.


Besides greeting the player at the beginning of Rhythm Heaven, the Bandleader's vocals are a nice touch to Frog Hop. He sings the song Young Love Rock'n'Roll and adds a nice sense of rhythm to the song to assist the player. He also plays the saxophone in Jumpin' Jazz to the vocals of the song.
