Power Calligraphy (リズムお習字 Rhythm Oshuji?) is the 21st game in Rhythm Tengoku, the 3rd Extra game unlocked with 41 Medals in Rhythm Heaven Fever and the 23rd game in Rhythm Heaven Megamix. It's about a man who is learning how to write Japanese calligraphy.

Gameplay

Power Calligraphy 3DS gameplay

You play as a giant hand writing calligraphy with a surprising amount of strength. When the giant hand reaches enough power, press A to write. There are six different symbols to write (レ ("Re" Katakana), 、 (a Japanese comma), 力 (power), 己 (oneself), 寸 (sun, a Japanese kind of measurement), 心 (heart), and the characters つるニハ○○ムし (or つ3ニハ○○ムし in the Korean version) arranged to form a face). Near the end, the game goes faster and people come out dancing.

Controls

Button Mode

  • A: Write (with power)

Simple Tap Mode

  • Tap: Write (with power)

Timing Notes

  • Hit: The symbol is successfully written.
  • Barely: If early, the line turns out squiggled. If late, a messy spot of ink is made. If the Calligraphy People are present, they will stumble over. Either way, a sigh will be let out. A barely counts as a miss.
    • In Tengoku, a "doink" sound can be heard when this happens, but it's not in Fever or Megamix.
  • Miss: If missed completely no marks are made, letting out a sigh. If the Calligraphy People are present, they will stumble over.

Calligraphy Set A New Approach
Calligraphy Set
I got these calligraphy tools as a
hand-me-down from my sister,
but they were so heavy and hard
to set up, I just couldn't get into
it. But then I started doing it to
music, and now I never stop!

Skill Star

When you are writing the sun symbol (寸) for the first time, write perfectly to collect the star.

Power Calligraphy also appears in the 2P mode of Rhythm Tengoku (Arcade) where it is referred to as Power Calligraphy 2P (リズムお習字 2P Rhythm Oshuji 2P?). It plays the same as the 1P version, except it has a split screen display to accommodate the second player. As a consequence of this design, there is only one column of dancers per screen, and they walk over the paper.

Trivia

  • There is an unused string in Rhythm Tengoku reading "リズムお習字 2"[1] directly after the text strings for Remix 8, meaning that a Power Calligraphy 2 was intended, but was scrapped.
  • The "The End" kanji that appears in Japanese version was kept in the international version of Rhythm Heaven Megamix, unlike Rhythm Heaven Fever.
  • In the Korean version, various things were changed, as seen below.
