"Time to put a fresh and surprisingly
literal spin on the idea of "street
basketball." Also, fruit!

Fruit Basket (フルーツバスケット Fruit Basket) is the eighth minigame introduded in Rhythm Heaven Megamix. In this game, the player controls Courtney, the blue ground, who is bouncing fruits to get it into the basketball net outside in a happy looking field.

A sequel later appears in Machine Tower under the title Fruit Basket 2.



Courtney must bounce off fruits to the beat as they roll across him. Press A to bounce the fruit into the basketball net. There are two kinds of fruits. Apples, which have a normal beat, and lemons, which are on the offbeat. Please note that the melons do not appear in this variant.


Button Mode

  • A: Dunk the fruit

Simple Tap Mode

  • Tap: Dunk the fruit

Timing Notes

  • Hit: The fruit successfully gets bounced and shoots onto the basketball net.
  • Barely: The fruit bounces but misses the basket for being too late or too early. A barely counts as a miss.
  • Miss: The fruit is utterly missed and passes right by.

Rating Notes


  • "Word from the Street"

Try Again

  • "Hmmm, you could use a bit more apple practice."
  • "The lemons left you sour."


  • "Eh. Passable."


  • "How 'bout dem apples?!"
  • "Woohoo!" Fresh-squeezed goodness!"


Rhythm Item


Who Threw These?
Sometimes basketballs and fruit come zooming over the fence from the school next door. I always look over the fence, but there's no one there. Is the basketball court haunted?

Skill Star

The Skill Star can be collected when you bounce two lemons at the very end of the minigame.



  • Some of the things Courtney can think about are: a game of tic-tac-toe, his girlfriend, a dog, a hamburger and shake, himself as a skateboard, a little spider, and a panda.
  • In the American, European and Korean releases, the garage door from the Machine Remix was replaced with (presumably) Mr. Chicken from Charging Chicken with his car.
