You'll be the tiny, inflatable
champ in no time!

Figure Fighter 2 (かえってきた マッスル人形 Kaettekita Massuru Ningyou, "Return of Muscle Doll"), known in Rhythm Heaven Fever as Figure Fighter (Japanese: マッスル人形 Massuru Ningyou, Muscle Doll), is the 14th minigame in Rhythm Heaven Fever and the 40th minigame Rhythm Heaven Megamix. It's about a Muscle Doll who needs to punch the punching bag while keeping his guard up on the ring. A sequel/threequel for this game appears later on called Figure Fighter 3. It's also a sequel to Figure Fighter in Rhythm Heaven Megamix


Figure Fighter gameplay
Figure Fighter 3DS gameplay
The player must press the button at the same time the doll hits the punching bag. This will cause the doll's muscles to buff up, making him strike the punching bag much more forcefully. Signals are given throughout the song by an announcer to determine when to inflate the doll.

There are four different signals the announcer will give out:

  • "Jab!": The doll will punch once after the announcer finishes, with some delay.
  • "One, two!" The doll will punch twice after the announcer finishes, with a break between the two punches. The screen will darken with the announcer's cue to help the player time it right.
  • "Onetwo!" The doll will punch twice quickly after the announcer finishes.
  • "Gogogo!" (Japanese: どどかん! dodokan!) The doll will punch three times quickly after the announcer finishes. The screen will darken with the announcer's cue to help the player time it right.

Each cue goes at the same speed, but there are different intervals and mixes of them.


Button Mode

  • A: Press button

Simple Tap Mode

  • Tap: Press button

Timing Notes

  • Hit: The button pumps him up to be more muscular simultaneously with his jab.
  • Barely: The figure's pumping is delayed with the sound of released air, or a popping noise, depending on if the player was early or late. A barely counts as a miss.
  • Miss: The figure hits the punching bag without pumped-up arms.

Empty Box
Waste not…
I finally got my Muscle Doll! When I took it out of the box and started playing, Mom took the empty box and said we might "have a sure use for it sometime." Suspicious.

Skill Star

After the lights get brighter blocking you vision the next time the announcer says "go go go!" punch perfectly the third time to collect the star.

  • Extreme Sports (Super Hard!)



  • Missing the last "Onetwo!" at the end will result in an "OK".
  • The battery on the Muscle Doll's back in the Try Again epilogue screen is conversely inserted instead of being inserted correctly. This error was fixed in Figure Fighter and Figure Fighter 2 in Megamix.
  • This is the only Rhythm Heaven Fever game with upgraded practice background in Megamix. In original, there was no ringside in the background.
  • Figure Fighter 2 appears in the third remix of both Rhythm Heaven Fever and Megamix (Remix 3 (Wii) and Machine Remix, respectively).
  • This game has noticeably similar controls and rhythm to Tap Trial.
