Rhythm Rally (ピンポン pin pon "ping pong") is the 20th minigame that appears in Rhythm Heaven Megamix, and it's a story variant of Rhythm Rally from Rhythm Heaven. In this game, the player controls one of the Paddlers playing a table-tennis rally game together. In this variant, the Paddlers play a rally match on a flower with a ladybug.

A sequel later appears in Barbershop Tower under the title Rhythm Rally 2.


The paddlers are playing a table-tennis rally on a big flower, and you are playing as one of them. To hit the ball, you have to press A button to serve it to your rival. There are two speeds of served balls: normal, which bounce at a standard pace, and slow, which bounce higher.

Story Rhythm Rally gameplay

Each cue goes at the same speed, but there are different intervals and mixes of them. Note that the fast ball set does not appear in this variant.
