Super Samurai Slice (ゐあひ斬り伝説?, Iai Giri Densetsu) is the 4th Rhythm Game of Songbird Land (26th overall) in Rhythm Heaven Megamix. The arrange version, Super Samurai Slice 2, appears in Right-Hand Tower.
During the game, the Demons spawn from all corners of the screen, coming out of thin air or from the water, with the samurai slicing them at the right time. In the middle of the game, he boards a skateboard, slicing demons on the move. Occasionally, a big demon appears, who the samurai must first block before slicing. At the end, the samurai faces the purple large demon who had kidnapped the woman.

|The Townsfolk Say|
|He must clear his mind of errant thoughts.|
Be wary of the ghoulish deluge!
His counterattacks require work...
|He mastered the basics.|
Impressive skills. Strong is his focus.
|Er...Mr. Samurai? You might
want to get up...
|Mr. Samurai...I'm over here...||I heard he's actually|
|Monster Debris||What IS This?|
|After every full moon, there|
are piles of this stuff lying
all over the village. No one
knows that the samurai is
saving them, but he doesn't
do it for the recognition.
The Skill Star appears on the big demon in the middle of the game.
Super Samurai Slice appears in the following Challenge Train courses:
- This Rhythm Game is designed to resemble video games from the 8-bit and 16-bit era. This extends to the title using the word "Super", as many games did back in the day. The prologue having "2015 MADE IN KYOTO" beneath the game's logo and options for "1 PLAYER" and "2 PLAYERS" references how the earliest games from the Nintendo Entertainment System and arcade games from around that time would display their copyright and player options, as well as the year in which Rhythm Tengoku: The Best+ was released, and the location of Nintendo's headquarters, Kyoto, Japan.
- The scream the lady makes upon being kidnapped is reused from Tap Trial when Girl misses a jump.
- Like in Iai Giri and Iai Giri Gaiden, the Japanese title of this game uses a nearly obsolete Japanese kana, ゐ (wi?), which is rarely used in modern Japanese.
- This game appears in the "Wario...Where?" Challenge Train course. Here, The Wandering Samurai is replaced with 9-Volt and 18-Volt, who must rescue Sal Out instead of a lady.
