Charging Chicken (チキンレース Chicken Race) is the 27th minigame that has been introduced in Rhythm Heaven Megamix. The player controls as Mr. Chicken who is in the car. All you have to do is to charge his car until it's fueled up to 4-16 beats while releasing A button to fire his car in time and reach to another land, but be sure to fuel it in time, the road platforms will fall apart after reaching another one, and when you'll out of fuel, you will fall into the sea and lose a life or get a game over screen.This minigame appears in Gate 3, and can be unlocked as an Endless Game after beating all three levels of it.


Chicken Race gameplay
The player plays as a chicken racer that must press and hold A button to charge his electric car and then release it in time when his car is fueled up to 4-16 beats. After that, he will go and reach to another land while the platforms will fall apart when you touch any of them, giving a game over. If you fuel his car too much while doing nothing, the car will explode and make him a roast chicken, you will have to redo the cue all over again without losing a life. Each counting beat have a different speed timing, the last counting numbers will have a muted music and the counting numbers won't show up during some levels. The scenery will change the background sometimes to day and night, space or even another dimension if you reach far enough.


Button Mode

  • Hold A: Charge his car
  • Release A: Charge!

Simple Tap Mode

Timing Notes

  • Hit: The chicken's car is fueled and can reach to another land.
  • Barely: The chicken's car is fueled but if it's fueled too early or late while reaching the land, it will fall down to the sea instead of stopping on a land or on a platform that will fall apart too.
  • Miss: The chicken's car is still fueling and nothing is happening, but it will explode if it continues charging too much, and the chicken will turn into a roast chicken.
