Pajama Party (パジャマズ Pajamas?) is the 66th minigame introduced in Rhythm Heaven Megamix. In this game, the player controls Mako, who is having a pajama party with a group of monkeys.


Pillow Dance

The player will have to jump at the same time as the monkeys in the row or column that most move, similar to Cheer Readers or The Dazzles. This may involve jumping by pressing the A button or going to sleep by pressing A at the right moment. There are two types of jump cues-- 3-beat & 5-beat- but they are roughly the same (the button press happens on beat 3 of the measure). Also, the scenery will take you into dreamland after throwing your pillow, which is done by holding and releasing the B button. In dreamland, you are a princess, while the monkeys are gentlemen. You must keep jumping, and then throw the pillow in order to wake up.

Gameplay Features

Dreamland Transformation

If the player does not throw the pillow the first time it is cued, the princess dreamland transformation will not take place.

Dreamland Background

Ocean sunfish, tuna or galleons can be seen flying in the sky in dreamland. The fish/ship that can be seen is selected at random for each playthrough.


Button Mode

  • A: Jump or go to sleep
  • Hold B: Prepare to throw
  • Release B: Throw the pillow

Simple Tap Mode

  • Tap: Jump or go to sleep
  • Hold Stylus: Prepare to throw
  • Release Stylus: Throw the pillow

Timing Notes

  • Hit: When jumping, the girl will jump at the same height as the other monkeys. When throwing her pillow, the girl will throw it and grab it at the same time as the monkeys. When the going to sleep, the girl will go to sleep at the same time as the monkeys.
  • Barely: The girl will jump, but at a considerably low height depending on if the player was late or early. When throwing her pillow, the girl throws the pillow, but it will barely leave her hands. When trying to sleep, the girl lands her head too early or late on the pillow and does not sleep. In all three cases, the girl will have an embarrassed expression after each action.
  • Miss: If the player does nothing when the monkeys jump, the girl will stumble over with a look of surprise on her face; this also happens if the player does nothing when throwing the pillow. If the player throws the pillow when they are not supposed to, the girl will toss her arms up, but the pillow falls to the ground. When trying to sleep, if the player sleeps off beat, the girl will crash onto the pillow in an odd pose accompanied with a cymbal sound. If the player does nothing when trying to sleep, the girl falls asleep sitting up with a frown on her face.

Challenge Train

  • Getting Vocal 2
  • Hello, Ladies...



  • This Rhythm Game has the same singer[citation needed], and is sung in a similar style, to Love Lab.
  • The monkeys in this game are more akin to their own design seen in Tambourine, and not of the normal rhythm monkey seen throughout the games.
  • The hot air balloon from Monkey Watch is seen in this game.
  • This is one of four games to get new English cues. The other three are Air Rally, Marching Orders, & Space Dance.
  • There is a picture of a mic during the prologue, which resembles the one from Fan Club.
  • The princess version of Mako does not have a unique sleeping sprite. There is also an unused sprite of a wigless gentleman monkeys looking sad, most likely to be used in a barely or miss animation. There's another sprite of a monkey oohing.
