The Rhythm Heaven universe (リズム天国, Rhythm Tengoku), known as Rhythm Paradise in PAL regions, is a series of rhythm-based music games made by Nintendo SPD (Nintendo Software Planning & Development). The series was created and developed by the same team that made the WarioWare series. As a result, the two series often make cameos in each other's games.

In Super Smash Bros. Brawl[edit]

Rhythm Tengoku is mentioned among the titles listed in the Chronicle in Japanese versions of Brawl. However, no other content from the series is featured anywhere else in the game.

In Super Smash Bros. 4[edit]

Sneaky Spirits appear as a common enemy in Smash Run in Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS. Karate Joe and the Chorus Kids, along with the aforementioned Sneaky Spirits, appear as collectible trophies in the 3DS version, while Marshal, Cam, and Miss Ribbon and the Wrestler and Reporter appear as collectible trophies in the Wii U version.

Two songs from the series are included with the Miiverse stage in Super Smash Bros. for Wii U: Blue Birds from the Nintendo DS installment Rhythm Heaven, and Monkey Watch from the Wii installment Rhythm Heaven Fever. These songs are playable on the Miiverse stage.

Additionally, icon data for a Rhythm Heaven character appears in the data for Super Smash Bros. 4, but goes unused in the final product.

In Super Smash Bros. Ultimate[edit]

Several characters from throughout the series appear in the game as Spirits. The Rhythm Heaven series features the most Spirits of any universe not represented by a fighter.

Music[edit]

Source Tracks[edit]

  • "Blue Birds": The theme from the Blue Birds minigame sourced from Rhythm Heaven.
  • "Monkey Watch": The theme of the Monkey Watch minigame from Rhythm Heaven Fever. In an arrangement unique to Super Smash Bros., the song contains clapping throughout and seamlessly loops back to the start.
  • "Fruit Basket": Despite its name, this theme is sourced from the minigame Fruit Basket 2 from Rhythm Heaven Megamix.
