"Shrimp make surprisingly
good dancers and will jump
at the chance to show off
their skills. Try not to
bump into anyone.

"Shrimps love to dance any
time they hear music, but
they don't like having their
tails stepped on.

Shrimp Shuffle (エビおんど Ebi Ondo) is the 32nd minigame in Rhythm Heaven Fever, and the second game of the seventh set. In this game, you are the third of the low tide dance quartet, The Shrimp Scamperers, and have to move in sync with the others to the beat. Getting a perfect will unlock a song of this game.


Shrimp Shuffle Gameplay

The player controls the third shrimp from the left and must tap the 'A' Button to the beat to prevent from bumping into the shrimp on your left and right. The announcer will continuously say "1, 2, 3! 3, 2, 1!" to the beat and before every repeat of this rhythm the shrimps will exclaim "Together!". Occasionally, the shrimp will pause and shift position for a moment, then move along the regular rhythm again, only with another repeat starting immediately after the current one ends. Finally, the announcer will sometimes replace "3,2,1!" with "A, B, C!" ("Ebi sea!" in Japanese). The player will have to press the 'A' and 'B' Buttons at the same time on 'C' to make the shrimp jump backwards.


  • A: Hop
  • A + B: Leap Backwards

Timing Notes

  • Hit: The player's shrimp will hop along with the others.
  • Barely: The player's shrimp will hop along with the others, but unnoticeably touch the sprite in front of it if the hop is too early or the sprite behind it if the hop is too late. A barely counts as a miss.
  • Miss: The player's shrimp will bump into the shrimp in front of or behind it.

  • Humorously, whenever the Shrimp Scamperers pause, the dolphins in the background will halt in midair.
  • The game is based around a pun that was lost in translation. When the voice cues the backwards jump, it can refer to either "ABC", the first three letters of the English alphabet, or it can refer to "Ebi Sea", with "Ebi" meaning "shrimp" in Japanese.
  • The song & title card theme are similar to The☆Bon Odori's music.
  • The game's title card is one of a few that doesn't share the same track as the other ones.
  • In the Korean version, the title screen is different as the background is orange instead of pink and lacks the "rising sun" at the bottom.
    • This is due to the rising sun flag being considered offensive in Korea, as a result of Japanese occupation in the peninsula.

  • The epilogue screen of OK in Rhythm Heaven Fever is a reference to the phrase "There's no 'i' in team."
