Rhyme Rider Kerorican (ライムライダー・ケロリカン?) styled as Rhyme RiDER Kerorican is a music video game. The game's plot involve the adventures of Kerorican, a female astronaut wearing kemonomimi-style frog-helmet, as she walks along accompanied by jazzy techno music. As Kerorican continues her walk, she encounters enemies and obstacles. Kerorican must jump, duck, kick aside, or otherwise dodge these obstacles to progress and as she does so, the actions she takes add notes to the song such that the player's actions results in a generative melody. By successfully clearing strings of obstacles, Kerorican's combo count increases, and this can result in a reward to the player of a crown that acts to skip over obstacles. This game is played with the WonderSwan Color held diagonally, the only game on the system to do so; this is why all text in the game is oblique.

The game is notable for criticized difficulty of gameplay as timing and tricky button combinations often result in the character's death. The game also contains only four levels, so replayability value has also been considered a negative factor.[citation needed]
