In the anime
Rhyth debuts in EP013 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.
