Rhythmia gained at the end of each round in Theatrhythm.

Rhythmia (abbreviated as rm), Rhythm Points (リズポ, Rizupo?) in Japanese, is a concept in Theatrhythm Final Fantasy and Theatrhythm Final Fantasy Curtain Call. It is obtained by clearing music scores, and accumulating it leads to various rewards for the player. Chaos is encountered immediately for a one-off Battle Music Sequence (BMS) upon reaching 10,000 Rhythmia in Theatrhythm and 20,000 in Curtain Call, after which the credits roll and the story is considered completed; Curtain Call additionally has a similar encounter with Feral Chaos at 40,000 Rhythmia. The 10,000 Rhythmia reward for Curtain Call is a special EMS.

In Theatrhythm, Rhythmia rewards are either new Music Stages to be played in Challenge Mode—every 5,000rm from 10,000 up to 25,000 unlocks a new Encore track, and every 2,500rm from 27,500 up to 45,000 unlocks a new Chaos track—shards for unlocking characters, the addition of movies and music to the Museum, or the addition of characters and byline phrases for the ProfiCard. If the player earns a Shard but already has the corresponding character unlocked, they will receive a consumable item instead.

Curtain Call has a mostly identical system, although movies are added to the Theatre after clearing the new EMS, as those are Rhythmia rewards instead, and the first shard reward for each color is a full set to allow a character to be unlocked immediately, after which shard rewards are single shards. Shard colors are earned in a repeating cycle, and any color for which all characters have been unlocked is simply skipped in the cycle order rather than being replaced by a consumable. Additionally, a new type of reward is sound effects that can be selected as the chimes played when hitting triggers.

Rhythmia is capped at 99,999 in Theatrhythm and capped at 999,999 in Curtain Call.

Rhythmia bonuses[]

When the player completes any music stage, they always earn a Clear Bonus, Chain Bonus, and Rank Bonus, depending on their clearing the stage, their highest Chain, and the rank grade they receive for their score. The player will also receive a Tactical Bonus, which is calculated based on the party's remaining HP, the percentage of Triggers the player hit a Critical on, what items the player used, and what abilities they activated.

The player can also receive the following optional bonuses by meeting various requirements:

  • Title Character Bonus – awarded when the party includes a character from the same original game as the song. This bonus stacks if the party has more than one such character.
  • All Male/Female Bonus – awarded when all four party members are male or female.
  • Daily/Weekly Player Bonus – awarded based on the consecutive number of days the player has played.
  • Critical Charter Bonus – awarded when the Critical Chart is completely filled.
  • First Clearing Bonus – awarded the first time the player clears a song.
  • Multi Play Bonus – awarded based on the number of people participating in Multi Play in the Chaos Shrine.

Curtain Call adds the Daily Special Bonus, which is awarded for clearing a daily special ("Today's Top Hit!") music stage, and equates to half of the Rhythmia earned from playing the score (including all other bonuses applied), rounded down. The Stoic Bonus from Theatrhythm (awarded for clearing a score with no abilities or items equipped) is now a Rhythmia bonus, worth 20rm. Clear Bonus is renamed to Clearing Bonus, and First Clearing Bonus is no longer awarded. All Male and All Female are renamed to Men Only and Women Only. Multi Play Bonus is also absent, due to the replacement of the Chaos Shrine mode with Quest Medleys.


An effective way to make a large amount of Rhythmia quickly in Theatrhythm is to make a party of Cecil, Rydia, Kain, and one other character, and use the following Reaction abilities (the player may use any Proactive abilities they wish):

  • Cecil: Fire, Thunder, Blizzard
  • Kain: Focus Lv1, Focus Lv2
  • Rydia: Thunder, Blizzard

The fourth party member can be any character that can equipped with Fire, Thunder and Blizzard at the same time. Vivi, Onion Knight, and Ashe all work for this purpose.

The player should enter Challenge mode and play any Final Fantasy IV BMS over and over. The Tactical bonus will grant the player 50 Rhythmia or more depending on their performance, the large amount of Reactive abilities equipped boosting the bonus greatly (Fire, Blizzard, and Thunder need fewer triggers to activate, allowing them to trigger more often). In tandem with a +90 Rhythmia bonus for having all three Final Fantasy IV characters in the party, the player can easily earn over 200 Rhythmia per attempt, possibly going as high as 300.

In Curtain Call, every main series title from Final Fantasy IV to Final Fantasy XIII has enough characters to allow a quadruple Title Character Bonus. In addition, the four Final Fantasy XI characters are all female, meaning the Women Only Bonus can also be earned at the same time. If one includes downloadable content characters, the Men Only Bonus is similarly achievable for Final Fantasy VII using Cloud, Barret, Sephiroth and Vincent, or Final Fantasy X using Tidus, Auron, Jecht and Auron #2. Playing music stages that have a Daily Special Bonus each day is also a useful source of Rhythmia, especially if the player optimizes the amount earned by triggering as many bonuses as possible (Critical Charter being especially valuable, but notably, only achievable once per score). The combination of the Wo/Men Only, Stoic and quadruple Title Character Bonuses guarantees a base Rhythmia reward of 150rm before adding any other bonuses.

The following tables are incomplete for one or more reasons. If you wish, please examine the table and add anything missing. Remove this notice upon completion.

Shard color order is presumed random per save file, but cycles through eleven colors in the same order within that file. The first four colors in the cycle are Red, Yellow, Green and Indigo, in some order. The remaining seven colors are Purple, Peach, Orange, Turquoise, White, Silver and Golden, in some order. Black Shards are not part of the cycle. When a shard color is completed (i.e. all characters unlocked for that color), it is removed from the cycle.
