the stage, but what really
sells it are the backup
dancers! Dance away, and
set that stage on fire!

Frog Hop (ケロケロダンス?, Kero Kero Dance) is the 4th Rhythm Game of the fifth stage (24th overall) in Rhythm Heaven and the 2nd of Songbird Tower (59th overall) in Rhythm Heaven Megamix.

The player controls a green Frogette, one of four backup dancers during a performance. As The Bandleader sings "Young Love Rock 'n' Roll", all the dancers shake their hips to the beat. The Bandleader and the female Frogette occasionally change the rhythm, with the female Frogette giving a cue for the backup dancers to follow along:

  • "Yeah, yeah, yeah!": The dancers shake their hips three times in quick succession.
  • "Yahoo": The dancers shake their hips twice quickly.
  • "Spin it, boys": The dancers spin around. In Rhythm Heaven Megamix, this is also accompanied by a speech bubble.


Rhythm Heaven

  • Tap: Shake hips
  • Tap (Hold): Prepare to spin
  • Flick: Spin

Rhythm Heaven Megamix

  • Ⓐ/Tap: Shake hips
  • Ⓑ (Hold)/Tap (Hold): Prepare to turn
  • Ⓑ (Release)/Tap (Release): Turn

Timing Display

  • Perfect!/Ace!?: The player dances correctly.
  • Early!/Late!?: The player sweats as he dances slightly off the beat. The sound effect differs between Rhythm Heaven and Rhythm Heaven Megamix. In Rhythm Heaven only, this does not cause the player to fail a Perfect Campaign.
  • Miss...?: The player bumps into the frog next to him. The other frogs look worried at the player.

"When we grow up, we'll put on the
colorful tights and practice singing,
dancing, and playing instruments."
"What? For real? Why?" "Because
that's how our family makes its
money." "Seriously?"

Skill Star

The Skill Star appears on the spin just before the chorus.

Challenge Land

Frog Hop appears in the following Challenge Train courses:




The following is commentary given on the STAFF'S VOICE section of the booklet included in Rhythm Tengoku Zen Kyoku-shu.

Japanese Translation
小黒 「明るいロケンロー」を歌ってるのは、実はつんく♂です。 Oguro: The person singing "Young Love Rock 'n' Roll" is actually Tsunku♂-san.

つんく♂ 田舎もんのロカビリーなんですけどね。だからちょっと訛っつてるんです(笑)。でも、歌ったときは「カラテ家」のようなゲームに入るイメージだったんです。まさか、カエルが何匹も出てきて、ケツをふりふりするとはねえ。だから、最初見たときは、笑いが止まらなかったです。それに、タッチペンをはじいて、カエルがクルッとターンするところが、音にピッタリ合っていて、非常に気持ちよかったですね。 Tsunku♂: I'm a country rockabilly singer. That's why I have a bit of an accent (laughs). But when I sang it, I had an image of entering a game like "Karate Man". I never thought that many frogs would come out and shake their butts. I couldn't stop laughing when I first saw it. And the way the frogs turn around when I flicked the stylus was a perfect match with the sound, and it was very pleasing.

米 メスガエルが「ハッハアーイ」と言ってますけど、実は僕の声です(笑)。音程を変えただけで、メスガエルの声になるんですね。 Yone: The female frog says "Hah haaai", but it's actually my voice (laughs). Just by changing the pitch, it becomes the voice of a female frog.


  • The Bandleader also appears in the Introduction of Rhythm Heaven and after clearing Remix 6.
  • Just before the last verse in the song, The Frogettes perform "Yahoo" three times in a row, followed by a spin. Due to how close together these cues are, the front dancers shake their hips one time too many for each, resulting in the direction they shake ultimately desyncing from the backup dancers for the last verse. The backup dancers also end up performing one shake too many between the last "Yahoo" and spin during this part.
  • The building in the background of the prologue to this game in Rhythm Heaven Megamix is the same one from the prologue to Glee Club.
  • This game and Frog Hop 2 are the only games returning from Rhythm Heaven in Rhythm Heaven Megamix where the flick motion isn't replaced with releasing Ⓐ; the Ⓑ button is used instead.
