Samurai Slice 2 (悪霊退散2 Akuryou Taisan 2?, "Dispelling Evil Spirits 2") is the 36th minigame in Rhythm Heaven Fever. This game is the sequel to Samurai Slice. In this sequel, the Wandering Samurai went on a journey to the city. There, evil dark creatures have stolen a businessman's bunny gift for his daughter, and the samurai must defeat them and get it back.
This game works very similar to the first game, only more complicated. The player must slice a group of demons, or evil spirits, as they spawn from a dark portal before they attack the city. Dark demons will appear and the player must slice them with the sword at the correct time to vanquish them by pressing A. Occasionally, a vortex of demons will swarm at once and the player has to perform a whirlwind slice by pressing A and B at the same time, which will make the samurai thrash his sword rapidly. At a time during the game, the screen will be covered by screens of "the story so far". As well as a "The End" screen at the end, making it more difficult to slice the demons. In the background, a "LIVE MUSIC" sign will flash in time with the hits. The tempo is also faster than the original.
A: Slice sword
A+B: Whirlwind slice
Hit: The samurai slices the evil spirit in two. The group of spirits is easily cut up by his whirlwind slice.
Barely: The samurai's blade grazes the evil spirit and it flies away. When facing a horde of spirits, the samurai cuts them up as normal, though this will count as a miss if the initial hit was a barely. A barely counts as a miss in this game.
Miss: The spirit attacks the samurai with a bite. If pressed too early, the samurai will simply miss.
The samurai's appearance is changed in the Korean version as he has a hat with two bolts of lightning, red and brown clothes, longer blue pants, and a mustache and beard.
Like Packing Pests, if you fail the last dark creature who holds a bunny, you can't get a superb, and you'll get OK rating instead.
The electric sign in the background changes depending on which version is played. In the Japanese and Korean version, it reads "MUSIC". In the American version, it reads "LIVE MUSIC". In the European version, it reads "JAZZ".
