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.


  • Ⓐ/Tap (Hold): Charge his car
  • Ⓐ/Tap (Release): Charge!

  • Perfect!/Ace!: The chicken's car is fueled just enough to stop on the next plot of land.
  • Early!/Late!: The chicken's car is fueled either too little, causing the car to fall just short of the plot of land, or too much and overshoot it. Either way, one life is deducted from the counter.
  • Miss...: If fueled way too little, the pump pulls out, and the cars stays in place. If fueled way too much, the car explodes, leaving the chicken roasted. Either way, the player is prompted to try again without deducting a life.
