Rhyth is a pale green feminine seaweed creature with big dark brown eyes and tiny pink blushed cheeks. She has a dull red ribbon tied around the top of her head to match the pants she wears. Over the chest are white bandages, along with a loose pink jacket accented by white.
Rhyth, like Wiglin and Steppa, is an energetic and cheerful Yo-kai. She loves dancing and enjoys it. In tone with this, she says "Yeah!" every time she can. Along with her friends Wiglin and Steppa, Rhyth makes people dance very well.
A samba beat that restores HP and fills friends with courage.

In the anime
Rhyth debuts in Yo-kai Dancers, along with Wiglin and Steppa, in which they cause Nate to be able to dance when previously was not able to. While initially grateful, Nate quickly curses this new ability when it takes him to the extreme by causing him to dance even in inappropriate situations. Sometime after this, the Yo-kai Dancers give Nate their Yo-kai Medals.
In Yo-kai Tengloom, Nate summons Wiglin, Steppa, and Rhyth to make Tengloom smile. However, this plan backfires and all of them fall rolling down to a three, which ironically makes Tengloom smiles.
"Mekabu-chan" comes from mekabu (和布蕪), thicker wakame leaves cropped near the stalk. "Rhyth" is a corrupted form of the word rhythm.
Rhyth along with Wiglin and Steppa are the only Yo-kai capable of equipping "Cheery Coat"
Although Rhyth grabs both the attention of Steppa and Wiglin, she is interested in neither of them.
There is a mistranslation in Yo-kai Watch Blasters where she, Wiglin, and Steppa instead of saying the "Dancing Trio" in their introduction say the Japanese group name "Triple Sea".
