Quiz Show (クイズ Quiz?) is the 19th game in Rhythm Tengoku and the 93rd game in Rhythm Heaven Megamix. This game is about the Quiz Show Player who's participating in a quiz show where he must hit the buttons the same amount of times as the Quiz Show Host.


Quiz show

The host will hit the button a certain amount of times. The practice has the first three questions, (1st question - 03 times, 2nd question - 06 times, 3rd question - 13) and the actual game has question four, five, and six. The questions go as follows: 4th question - 18 times, 5th question - 28 times, and 6th question - 43 times with 1 or 2 hits added to the end. You then must match the number of button presses under a time limit, however, you do not have to follow the host's rhythm. You may do the pattern in any way you wish, as long as you get the correct number under the time limit. This is the only game in the franchise to do something like this. If you get the amount of hits wrong, the game ends.


Button Mode

  • A: Hit the circle button
  • D-Pad: Hit the + shaped button

Simple Tap

  • Tap: Hit one of the buttons

Timing Notes

Note: Since the game is based on ending with the same number as the host, and not on the timing of individual presses, the timing notes are based on if the total at the end is right or wrong.

  • Hit: The host's podium will reveal the same number as the player's. Both the player and the host will smile, and a victory jingle will play.
  • Barely: None in this game.
  • Miss: The host's podium will reveal a different number than the player's. Both the player and the host will frown, and a loss jingle will play. One miss ends the game.

A Bit Moist
The buzzer on this podium works surprisingly well, considering it's soaked in the tears of former contestants.

Game Number


Quiz Show Special (クイズ スペシャル Quiz Special?) is the 3rd endless game in Rhythm Tengoku and requires 20 Medals to unlock. The patterns are much shorter, but there's also a shorter time limit and the patterns get faster every few correct answers. Also, you and the the host begin to change as the game progresses.

  • 0~4 = Everything stays normal.
  • 5~9 = Host starts making a face.
  • 10~14 = Host turns purple, hair become spiky, and small horns begin to form - Your character starts making a face.
  • 15~19 = Host turns pink, hair becomes yellow, horns grow - Your character's facial expression intensifies.
  • 20+ = Host turns red, hair is gone, large horns protrude from his forehead - Your character becomes very determined and his face intensifies more.



  • This game is very unique. It is the only minigame in the series to not have music playing throughout most of the minigame, only game where you do not need to follow the rhythm, possibly the only one to show the generic embodiment of a demon, and one of only two games that can end before it's supposed to. (The other being Night Walk).
    • The game will end even if you get an answer in the practice wrong.
      • The arcade version doesn’t end when you fail on the practice, though.
      • You can get a Perfect in this game by failing in the practice in the Megamix version, as seen in this video.
WarioWare Dribble and Spitz Intro
  • The Try Again epilogue screen is a reference to Dribble and Spitz's intro in WarioWare Inc. Mega Microgame$.
  • Usually, the OK rating note is shared across all games. In the Rhythm Tengoku version of this game, however, this is circumvented by having the player get a Just OK if they fail on the 6th question. In fact, getting an OK on this version of the game is impossible.
  • If you hit the buttons over 100 times, the counter will malfunction and break, following a series of destructive mishap with the set's equipment; First it destroys your box, the host's box, and then the sign.
  • This is the only rhythm game not to have a Skill Star for getting perfect timing on a specific input.
  • In the international versions, the sign has the host's face and two melody notes on it instead of the word Quiz. Only in the Japanese version, the word shows instead.
  • The Quiz Show sprite sheet in Rhythm Heaven Megamix contains assets used only in Quiz Show Special, which isn't present in the actual game.
  • The fanfare when a correct answer is given was reused in Charging Chicken.
