"Little known fact: when
no one's watching, moai
love to sing. Repeating the
first one's phrasing takes a
light touch and good timing.

Perfect Reward Moai Language Lesson

Moai Doo-Wop (モアイソング Moai Songu?) is the 9th minigame in Rhythm Heaven. In this minigame, the player controls the female moai as the pair exercise their vocals together in a song. The sequel, Moai Doo-Wop 2, is unlocked later on.


Moia Doo-Wop Gameplay

The player has to repeat the sounds the male moai statue makes by either holding and releasing the stylus on the touch screen, or lightly tapping it to shout.


  • Hold stylus: Long note "Doo"
  • Release stylus: End long note with "Wop"
  • Tap quickly: Shout

Timing Notes

  • Hit: The moai continue their song.
  • Barely: The male moai will not be annoyed but it will count as a miss in a Perfect challenge.
  • Miss: The male moai opens his eyes in annoyance. Bird droppings from off screen drop onto the player's female moai if not in practice.

Rating Notes
