laugh at you if you miss.

Sneaky Spirits (しろいおばけ Shiroi Obake "white apparition") is the 19th minigame and it's a story variant of Sneaky Spirits from Rhythm Tengoku, and later Rhythm Heaven Fever that appears in Rhythm Heaven Megamix. The player controls a bow & arrow, and the goal of the game is to send the pesky ghosts back to their haunted house as they are trying to escape. In this variant, the environment is green, and there are a fountain and a few butterflies in the background.

A sequel later appears in Barbershop Tower under the title Sneaky Spirits 2.


Story sneaky spirits gameplay
The player controls a bow and arrow that is being used just outside in front of the house, always aimed at the door. Ghosts will start to peak above the wall and slowly creep towards the other wall. The player must time each arrow shot to the ghost's rhythm before they zoom to the other wall. The ghost's pace will increase and decrease during the game. Successfully shooting the ghost will result in the door opening and the ghost being thrown back into the house. Notice that these ghosts do not hide behind the wall after 4 beats and on in this variant.


Button Mode

  • A: Shoot arrow

Simple Tap Mode

  • Tap: Shoot Arrow

Timing Notes

  • Hit: Depending how perfectly the player hits the beat. The arrow hits the ghost squarely in the nose, on the cheek, in the stomach or in the tail. The ghost is then flung through the door of the house.
  • Barely: The ghost manages to zip past the arrow, and shudders before escaping. A barely counts as a miss.
  • Miss: The ghost zips through and giggles.

Rhythm Item


A Singular Item
This magic arrow can pierce a ghost! Impressive, right? (Of course, we only have the one, so we keep having to fire and retrieve it.)

The fastest ghost in this minigame will give you the star if you shoot him at the perfect moment.
