  • Courtney[1] (じめんくん[2]?, Jimen-kun) is a blue floor with two eyes and a mouth who appears in Fruit Basket in Rhythm Heaven Megamix.


    Courtney lives next to a school. Occasionally, basketballs, ping-pong balls, soccer balls, rugby balls[3] and even fruit will come over the fence in rhythm. Nobody seems to be there, leading him to believe that it's haunted[4]. There is also a gymnasium near Courtney, where the Space Dancers play ping-pong. One day, a table-tennis ball falls on the court. He wants to return it, but he can't enter the gymnasium because it's always locked[5]. Being a street, Courtney doesn't know how to play with it. He doesn't even know what a table is, and believes it's a kind of duck[6].

    Courtney appears to have been in a relationship or had a crush on a girl at one point; a pink, more feminine floor. Sometime between the events of Fruit Basket and Fruit Basket 2, however, they either broke up, or Courtney got rejected. Courtney appears to hate spiders but like pandas and pugs. He likes pizza and hamburgers as well. Courtney likes sports and Tic-Tac-Toe.

    Courtney appears in Rhythm Tengoku The Best Plus Comic, first in 07じめんくんのこと その1, 08じめんくんのこと その2 and 09じめんくんのこと その3 (About Courtney). In Part 1, Courtney is introduced, where he sees a lot of things bouncing on him. A basketball appears, and he bounces it back. In Part 2, he talks about how many people come, and that he wants to try the hamburger one person is eating. A pineapple appears, and he bounces it back. Courtney states that he doesn't eat food. In Part 3, Courtney is sitting in the rain. A snail moves above him, and he says he doesn't bounce his friends. He also appears in 35おいしいミックスジュース! (Delicious Mixed Juice!), where he bounces an apple and melon, and Plalin and Alalin catch them. They then, along with the snail, enjoy some fruit juice.




    • The descriptions for the Rhythm Items are mostly consistent across languages, however some languages give conflicting information. Namely, in the French version, Courtney describes himself as a ghost[7] rather than a street, while in the Korean version, he ends his sentences with a tilde ("~"), implying a ghost-like speech pattern, similar to how the Sneaky Spirits are known to talk.
      • The Rhythm Items also describe various types of balls and fruit to bounce over Courtney at times, which he rebounds, as depicted in 07じめんくんのこと その1 (About Courtney Part 1). The school Courtney lives next to is implied to be the same one from Double Date, while the fruit are implied to come from the same staircase where Catchy Tune takes place.
