Bertram (バッタ?, Batta) is one of Tibby's friends in Rhythm Heaven Megamix.


Bertram is a green creature similar to his friend Tibby. He wears glasses, and loves reading books. He is very knowledgable and shares interesting tidbits with Tibby[1]. He appears to get nervous upon any sign of romantic gestures.


After Tibby returns To Heaven World, he finds the place has turned gloomy, and writes a letter to the player asking for help. When they reach Heaven World, the two begin exploring and encounter Bertram in Star Land, who is unable to see[2] due to the gloomy clouds fogging up his glasses[3]. He speculates that the gloomy skies are the result of something having happened to Tibby's Mom[4], which he theorizes based on the direction and time the clouds came from[5] and reports of a spooky voice having been heard coming from Mamarin Palace the day before[6]. He is unable to finish his analisis of the situation due to his fogged glasses[7], so Tibby suggests that restoring the flow will help[8], something Bertram had not considered[9]. After clearing the four Rhythm Games, Bertram is startled upon seeing a heart in the sky, believing it to be a kiss someone had blown at him[10]. As he's calming down from the rush of the supposed kiss, he notices his glasses have cleared up[11], and he opens the way to Comet Land[12], urging Tibby to see his other friends[13].

Later on, Colin mentions that the main door to Mamarin Palace is locked up, that there is bad flow coming from the two towers next to the palace, and that clearing the Rhythm Games within will open the door[14]. Tibby briefly praises "Colin the Brain" for this plan[15], before Colin reveals it was Bertram who came up with it[16]. During the Gameplay Counts at the end of the story, Bertram is seen blowing bubbles with his friends.

Bertram appears in Rhythm Tengoku The Best Plus Comic. In 23テビリとバッタ (Tibby and Bertram), Tibby meets with Bertram, and tells him about Colin's belly being "that". Bertram, now sweating, comments that Colin's belly is "cool", which confuses Tibby. Bertram tries to correct himself and says it's "cute", which confuses Tibby again. Bertram tries to assure him that he knows what they're talking about. In 31テビリとイヨカン (Tibby and Betty), Betty complains to Tibby about their friends, in Bertram's case being about how he scribbled on the book she gave him. In 33レスラーとファン (Wrestler and Fans), Bertram is taking a picture with Wrestler alongside his friends.



  • In Bertram's official artwork, he has visible eyelashes. Due to the low resolution of his artwork in the game, these eyelashes blend in and become indistinguishable.
  • When visting Trey at the Café, he mentions a recurring dream where he and an individual, who he describes as looking nearly identical to himself and kind of like Tibby, talk about water. This may be a reference to Bertram, as they are both green and wear glasses[17].
  • Tibby mentions that he will someday grow up into a palace just like his mother[18]. As Bertram is of the same species, it is implied he will also grow up into a palace himself.
  • In the comic 23テビリとバッタ (Tibby and Bertram), Bertram's nervousness while talking about Colin's belly can be read as an indication he has a crush on Colin, similar to his freakout over a heart he thought was a kiss.

  1. "Outstanding! Ah, and you might find this interesting..." ~ Bertram, Rhythm Heaven Megamix
  2. "Mm? Oh, it's you, Tibby. Didn't see you there. Can't actually see much, to be honest." ~ Bertram, Rhythm Heaven Megamix
  3. "Once the skies changed... My glasses got...all fogged up. And now I can't read my favorite books. I can't even write letters!" ~ Bertram, Rhythm Heaven Megamix
  4. "Understand this is mere speculation... but I believe it has something to do with Tibby's mother." ~ Bertram, Rhythm Heaven Megamix
  5. "It's only a theory, but one borne out by facts. If we observe the direction from which the grayness emanates... and cross-reference with the time frame of gloomification... we must conclude that your house is the source, Tibby. So unless someone else is at home, the only suspect is... your mother, Tibby. Boom! Q.E.D." ~ Bertram, Rhythm Heaven Megamix
  6. "My reports claim that the day before the skies turned... a spooky voice was heard coming from your house." ~ Bertram, Rhythm Heaven Megamix
  7. "Clearly there are still many unknown variables. I will be able to finish my analysis... just as soon as my glasses are unfogged." ~ Bertram, Rhythm Heaven Megamix
  8. "Fogged glasses. Got it. Let's see... We could wipe them with a cloth, or... Wait! I'm guessing this is a problem I can fix by restoring flow, huh?" ~ Tibby, Rhythm Heaven Megamix
  9. "Hmm. I hadn't considered it, but yes, I believe that would work." ~ Bertram, Rhythm Heaven Megamix
  10. "T-Tibby... Yes, Tibby. You must have seen it just now. A heart appeared midair, as if someone blew a kiss at me. You saw it, yes? And that is what blown kisses look like?" ~ Bertram, Rhythm Heaven Megamix
  11. "...Haa...haa... My apologies. You are right, of course. Wait. My glasses... They are no longer fogged up! I can see! At last I am free to return to my studies!" ~ Bertram, Rhythm Heaven Megamix
  12. "And, in return for the All Clear, I will open the lock for you." ~ Bertram, Rhythm Heaven Megamix
  13. "Commendable job, Tibby! I frankly didn't expect you to clear my glasses so quickly... But I must say... The power of flow should never be underestimated. I shall remember that. It has been good to see you, Tibby. You should go visit your other friends as well." ~ Bertram, Rhythm Heaven Megamix
  14. "There. Look up! You see those two towers next to the palace? There's a buncha bad flow coming out of those towers. Pretty sure that's why the door won't open. That means you clear both of those towers... and you'll be chattin' with Mom in a jiff!" ~ Colin, Rhythm Heaven Megamix
  15. "Totally! "Colin the Brain" is what I'm going to call you!" ~ Tibby, Rhythm Heaven Megamix
  16. "Well, was Bertram who came up with it." ~ Colin, Rhythm Heaven Megamix
  17. "I keep having this weird dream. It's always the same, too. So, I reeeeally love drinking water. A lot. In my dream, I keep seeing the same person... And he also loves drinking water. We look nearly identical, too! He kinda looks like Tibby. Except like me instead. Anyway, we only hang out in my dream. And we talk about water. Super weird, right?!" ~ Trey, Rhythm Heaven Megamix
  18. "When I grow up, I'll become a palace, too. I'll be just like Mom is now. Are you surprised? I will stand here in Heaven World... watching over my people and their lives. So all this walking around freely like we've been doing... I can only do it while I'm still a kid." ~ Tibby, Rhythm Heaven Megamix
