Rap Men (ラップメン Rappu Men?) is the 23rd minigame in Rhythm Tengoku featuring a thin, red man and a round, yellow man going by the group name RAPMEN. It's arrange variant, Rap Women, is unlocked later on.


Rap Men Gameplay

There are two characters in this minigame. The player controls the yellow one on the right side of the screen. There are three main cues to press the A button. Pressing the A button makes the yellow one go "Unh!" (The three cues are the ですか? (Desu ka? Isn't it??) as "Un!" once, かもネ (Ka mo NE could be?) as twice and サイコー! (Saikō! The BEST!?) as "Un!" twice again but faster).


  • A: Rap

Timing Notes

  • Hit: The yellow rapper will say "Un!" perfectly while creating a big cloud of smoke.
  • Barely: The yellow rapper will just say "Un!" if he goes too early or too late when the red rapper finishes rapping. A barely counts as a miss.
  • Miss: The yellow rapper does not do anything after the red one finishes rapping. He will be upset and turn blue if you miss the cue.

  • The idea of blue for boys and pink for girls can be seen in the background color between this game and Rap Women.
  • The RAPMEN appear in the Rhythm Toy Rap Machine.
  • The RAPMEN make a cameo appearance in Freeze Frame, along with the Clappy Trio, the Space Dancers, and three Monkeys. There, they gather as a crowd watching the race.
  • In Rhythm Heaven, passing Remix 10 unlocks the "Battle of the Bands". On the flier, the RAPMEN can be seen. Also on the flier, you can find the phone number: 555-ROCK-OUT. If you call this number on the Rhythm Toy "Phone", you can hear the music this minigame. You can also hear the red guy saying "Yo" and "Havin' fun". And you can hear the yellow one say "Un!" repeatedly.
  • The RAPMEN make another cameo at the end of Love Rap and Love Rap 2, appearing as two framed pictures on the wall.
  • Ko Takeuchi (Rhythm Heaven's lead art designer) performed the lyrics.[citation needed]
