Sneaky Spirit
Skinny white ghosts that travel with a smirk on their face. They move like they do in Rhythm Heaven, popping up and down in rhythm before trying to run away. If you manage to defeat one, you'll earn a star-shaped stat boost that improves all of your stats. Time your attacks and keep them from escaping.
These white apparitions seem to have permanent smirks on their faces. Much like in the Rhythm Paradise series, they'll pop up rhythmically from a hiding place beneath the floor, then run away to a distant location. If you do manage to defeat one, you'll get a reward for your troubles, so pay attention to the rhythm and strike!

Karate Joe
Has there ever been a cry more manly than the "Uh!" that appears at the start of every Karate Joe stage? It's like he digs deep down inside himself, reveals his spirit with that "Uh!" of power...and then directs that energy into smashing flowerpots, bulbs, and exploding barrels. Karate Joe knows no fear!
Has there ever been a cry more manly than the "Uh!" that appears at the start of every Karate Man stage? Doesn't it sound like it comes from the very bottom of his soul? Or is that just us? ...Anyway! Karate Joe is a pretty cool guy. He punches flowerpots, bulbs, even exploding barrels without the slightest hesitation. Truly, he fears nothing.

The Chorus Kids
There are few games with as many charming characters as the Rhythm Heaven series. Take those groovy Love Lizards, for example. Birds could learn a thing or two from them. And what about the Chorus Kids? They look adorable with their little bowties, but things get odd when they open their mouths...
Chorus Kids
When it comes to the weird and wonderful, the Rhythm Paradise series has got all other games beat. Take those groovy Love Lizards, for example. Birds could learn a thing or two from them. And what about the Chorus Kids? They look adorable with their little bow ties, but things get a bit freakish when they open their mouths...

Marshal, Cam, and Miss Ribbon
From the right: Cam, Marshal, and Miss Ribbon. Cam is quiet and looks like a thinker, but his mind is actually a blank slate. Marshal looks cute and can be relied upon. Miss Ribbon looks innocent but is really quite stubborn. Some think these guys are related to the Chorus Kids from the previous Rhythm Heaven.
Matt, Cam & Miss Ribbon
The white one is Matt, the blue one's Cam, and the pink one's Miss Ribbon. Matt looks like a dreamer, but he's pretty down-to-earth. Cam always seems to be deep in thought, but he's really just spacing out. And Miss Ribbon seems innocent and sweet, but is actually pretty stubborn. Are these guys related to the Chorus Kids?

Wubbadubbadubba, that's cool!
Live from the Rhythm Arena, we bring you a true wrestling phenomenon! Swoon as he displays his outstanding physique! Marvel at his enlightening responses whenever he hears "Wubbadubbadubba, 'zat true?" And when he poses for the fans, we won't blame you if you faint. Whoa, you go, big guy!
