Dieter (プルタ?, Puruta) is a character encountered in Machine Land and Machine Tower in Rhythm Heaven Megamix.


Dieter appears to be a man with a car on his head. He owns a garage[1] in Machine Land where he appears to offer a car repair service[2]. He uses a lot of car-related puns when he speaks. He is self-concious about his age[3], and does not like being called "sir"[4].


Dieter mentions a few details about his childhood while visiting him at the Café. He has a younger sister, with whom he used to scrap a lot as kids[5]. His love for cars began when he was little, when his uncle would take them out for drives in the country[6].

After Tibby and the player help Boondog in Honeybee Land, they move onto Machine Land. There they meet Dieter, who is unable to get his engine started, and thus can't fix other people's cars in his garage. In order to restore the traffic flow, they must clear four Rhythm Games. After clearing the first game, Dieter's tools are restored, with which he claims can fix anything, even a bad flow[7]. After clearing them, Dieter is able to work again, and unlocks the door to The First Gate.

After Machine Land has been cleared, Dieter may visit the Café as a customer, where the player can talk to him. He mentions that on his time off, he likes to drive in his car. On one occasion, he went out to see the cherry blossoms in bloom[8]. He wishes to drive all around the world, but has yet to figure out how to cross the oceans[9]. He shares an embarrassing story of having to call a mechanic to fix his broken car out in the desert, as he had left his own tools at home[10]. He talks about his impressions of Eglantine[11], and a story about finding a frog on the roof of his car[12]. He mentions a story of when his sister visited him recently, and fixed up an old car he had been putting off fixing. He was proud of her, until she took the last of the cookies he had baked[5]. He takes any excuse to drive to new places, and he likes taking the scenic route[13]. He once went to the Cool-Car Show, and wishes to drive a car as cool as the ones displayed there[14]. He picked up Boondog as a hitchhiker on one occasion, and was given 12 pounds of honey as thanks, although he is not sure what to do with it[15]. Hairold mentions in one of his conversations about his impressions on Dieter wearing a car on his head, which he at first mistook for him being run over[16].

Later on, after Tibby and the player clear Lush Tower, Tibby tries to use its power to return to Heaven World, but it is not enough. Trey informs him that they need a rainbow of power for that, after which the six towers appear, one of them being Machine Tower. Here, the player and Tibby encounter Dieter once again, who tells them that his ancient tribe of gearheads has been taking care of the tower for a long time, but it has gotten rusty recently, and as such it has lost its flow. To restore it, the player and Tibby need to clear the five Rhythm Games within[17]. Upon doing so, Dieter awakens the tower's secret power, which helps create the rainbow needed to reach Heaven World[18].

Dieter appears in Rhythm Tengoku The Best Plus Comic 16がけっぷちの恋 (The Cliff of Love), where he is seen selling a car to Mr. Chicken.

  1. "These games here are gridlocked all over my garage." ~ Dieter, Rhythm Heaven Megamix
  2. "Honk, honk! Outta my way! Coming through! Beep beep! Ugh. Lookit me. I'm ready to overheat here. I can barely get my own engine goin'. How'm I supposed to fix other people's?" ~ Dieter, Rhythm Heaven Megamix
  3. "...Did you just call me... sir? Am I that old?" ~ Dieter, Rhythm Heaven Megamix
  4. "Aww, man! You hadda drag me down with "sir" again..." ~ Dieter, Rhythm Heaven Megamix
  5. 5.0 5.1 "I got this younger sister, see. She and I used to scrap a lot when we were kids. The other day she comes to visit me, right? I had this old clunker I'd been putting off fixing up... and she went and repaired it without even telling me! I mean, I knew she could do it--we're family, right? I was proud...until she took the last of the cookies I'd baked." ~ Dieter, Rhythm Heaven Megamix
  6. "How'd I get so into cars? Glad you asked, buddy! It probably goes back to when I was a kid... My uncle used to take us out for drives in the country. Whatever else was going on, I always enjoyed those trips. So now I just think of cars as big happiness machines! Oh, watch out! I'm gettin' all sentimental on ya!" ~ Dieter, Rhythm Heaven Megamix
  7. "Yeah! Now that I got my tools, leave it to me! I can fix anything, even a bad flow!" ~ Dieter, Rhythm Heaven Megamix
  8. "Hey, know what I like to do on days off? I drive. I got a REAL cool car, so I drive it alla time. Tomorrow I'm headin' out to see some cherry blossoms. They're all in bloom and beautiful and stuff. It'll be fun!" ~ Dieter, Rhythm Heaven Megamix
  9. "Hey, you like driving? Me? I love it. I could drive all day and night! Someday I'm gonna drive all around the world... Just need to figure out how to get around those oceans..." ~ Dieter, Rhythm Heaven Megamix
  10. "My car broke down in the desert the other day. I woulda fixed it myself, but... I left all my tools at home like a chump! So I had to call a mechanic. Me! Embarrassin'. Hey, do me a favor and don't tell anybody that story." ~ Dieter, Rhythm Heaven Megamix
  11. "I met kinda a strange lady the other day. She was carryin' this crazy-looking egg around. And one second she'd be nice, then it's like she's a monster! Guess there's always gonna be a variety o' people, eh?" ~ Dieter, Rhythm Heaven Megamix
  12. "Lately I was hearing a strange noise when I drove. It got louder when I went faster. So I looked the car over, real careful. Every detail. Know what I found? A frog sitting on the roof! I was goin' pretty fast--musta been terrified. Not much moral to this story, I guess. Watch for frogs?" ~ Dieter, Rhythm Heaven Megamix
  13. "Looks like rain. Did you bring an umbrella? No worries if you didn't. I'll drive you home. Really, I'll take any excuse to drive somewhere new. But be ready--I like to take the scenic route!" ~ Dieter, Rhythm Heaven Megamix
  14. "Have you heard about the Cool-Car Show? I went the other day, and they named it right! Tons of cars, and every one of them was crazy cool! The red car was cool, the square one was cool... Maybe someday if I work hard I'll drive a car that cool..." ~ Dieter, Rhythm Heaven Megamix
  15. "All the driving I do, I pick up hitchhikers sometimes. So I pick up this guy the other day. Weird fella. We talked a bit, but when I dropped him off? He gave me a big ol' pot o' honey to thank me! Come to think of it, he had wings... Why didn't he just fly? And what am I gonna do with 12 pounds of honey?" ~ Dieter, Rhythm Heaven Megamix
  16. "Hey, be honest--what do you think of my hat? Amazing, right? Some people think it looks too heavy. Not a chance! Actually, I wear a chin strap so it doesn't float away. True story! Oh, speaking of hats, I saw a doozy the other day. Talk about heavy hats--this guy had a car on his head! At first, I thought he'd been run over. But as a hairstylist, I try not to judge the heads of others." ~ Hairold, Rhythm Heaven Megamix
  17. "Outta the way! Outta the way! I'm driving here! Oh, it's you! Sorry, bud. Welcome to Machine Tower. My ancient tribe o' gearheads has always taken care of this place. But the tower's gotten rusty lately... It's definitely time for some maintenance, ya know? Tell you what--you guys get the flow goin' around here... and I'll help you get back to Heaven World. Deal?" ~ Dieter, Rhythm Heaven Megamix
  18. "You did it! It's flowin' like crazy all over Machine Tower! Good work, pal! Now it's my turn to help you. Let's wake up the secret power of the place!" ~ Dieter, Rhythm Heaven Megamix
