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.

Etymology

  • "Mekabu-chan" comes from mekabu (和布蕪), thicker wakame leaves cropped near the stalk. "Rhyth" is a corrupted form of the word rhythm.


Trivia

  • 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".
