Medals are rewards earned by completing a minigame with a superb ("High Level" in Rhythm Tengoku) or perfect rank, which will also unlock Endless Games and Rhythm Toys. Perfect medals will unlock a minigame's special gift. For example photos we will use each version of Built to Scale.
A medal is displayed on the top-right corner.
Perfect medals are not displayed on the frame but rather shown below the description of the minigame (or to the left of the rank).
Unlike Rhythm Tengoku and Rhythm Heaven Fever, a gold frame will appear around the minigame instead of an actual medal.
Perfect medals in Rhythm Heaven are simply Gold Medals with "PERFECT" displayed on the bottom.
In Rhythm Heaven Fever
The gold medal design from Rhythm Tengoku returns with something similar in Rhythm Heaven Fever. It is now located on the top-left of the frame instead.
The medal will be replaced with a Gold "P" when the minigame is completed with a Perfect rank. The minigame description will still read "Superb," however.
