Rhythm Tweezers 2 (かえってきた リズム脱毛 Kaettekita Rhythm Datsumo?), simply called Rhythm Tweezers (リズム脱毛 Rhythm Datsumo?) in Rhythm Tengoku, is the second minigame that appears in Rhythm Tengoku. It returns as the 38th minigame in Rhythm Heaven Megamix, as a sequel to Rhythm Tweezers.

The topic of this game is plucking the hairs off of vegetables, as well as dealing with the curly ones. In Rhythm Tengoku, this game has a sequel, Rhythm Tweezers 2, which is unlocked later in the game.

Gameplay

Rhythmtweezers

Rhythm Tweezers 2 in Rhythm Tengoku, titled "Rhythm Tweezers"

Veggie pluck gameplay

Rhythm Tweezers 2 in Rhythm Heaven Megamix

This minigame starts with an image of a vegetable. Several hairs, both straight and curly, appear in a rhythmic pattern. After the pattern ends, a pair of hair clippers will start to scroll around the vegetable, making the player repeat the rhythm it was given to pluck the hairs. Curly hairs also appear, which require the player to hold down the button for longer.

While the gameplay is identical in Rhythm Heaven Megamix, the background is now purple instead of white, and the turnips are replaced with potatoes.

Controls

Button Mode

  • A or D-Pad: Pluck regular hairs
  • Hold A or D-Pad: Pluck curly hairs

Simple Tap Mode

  • Tap: Pluck hairs
  • Hold Stylus: Pluck curly hairs

Timing Notes

  • Hit: The hair strand gets fully plucked out. If all of the hairs are plucked, The vegetable will smile at the end of the cycle.
  • Barely: Part of the hair gets plucked out, but some is left. A laughing sound can be heard. The vegetable won't smile at the end of the cycle. A barely counts as a miss.
  • Miss: The hair is not plucked.

Miso Soup

Miso Soup
Showing My Roots
My grandpa used to cook soup with lots of potatoes and onions. He used the veggies with the hairs growing. I ate that soup just about every day... You'd think I wouldn't be so bald now.

Skill Star

When the player is dealing with the potato with one hair at the beginning and the end, and a bunch of hairs between them, pluck the last hair at the right moment to collect the skill star.
