Karate Man (カラテ家 Karateka?) is the 1st minigame and the short variation of Karateka from Rhythm Tengoku that appears in Rhythm Heaven Megamix. In this game, you are playing as Karate Joe who must punch flying objects off-screen. The game scenery is pink with light-pink circles.

The long variant appears in Honeybee Tower under the title Karate Man Returns!


Karate Man Story gameplay

The game revolves around Karate Joe punching objects. As objects fly by the character, the player must press A to punch them off-screen.


  • Ⓐ/Tap: Punch

Timing Display

  • Perfect!/Ace!: Karate Joe punches the object off-screen.
  • Early!/Late!: Karate Joe mistimes the punch, causing him to wince as the object lands on the ground just in front of him.

As a child, I dreamed of being
a soccer player. My father
wouldn't hear of it. "You must
master karate before you
leave my house!" I still live
in the basement.

Skill Star

To collect the first Skill Star, punch the soccer ball at the right moment later in the minigame.

Challenge Land

  • Simplicity Is Best
  • Karate Joe vs. the Monster



  • This is one of the few games to have different epilogue screens in both versions, except for the Try Again screen, as it stays the same as the original, but with a slight change. It is switched to the right, rather than the left.
  • Like the Karateka game in Rhythm Tengoku, this is the first game played.
