Charlie Takes the Field is a minigame in Rhythm Thief and the Emperor's Treasure.


Nail Charlie with the soccer ball!
Touch to kick it back, slide to shoot.
Touch and slide the stylus on the Touch Screen.

The player must help Phantom R fend off Charlie by rallying a soccer ball with him and shooting it at him when he drops his guard.

Tapping the screen kicks the ball back to Charlie and sliding the stylus up when Charlie performs a hanging shot will shoot it at him. During the minigame, Charlie will rebound the ball on a fire hydrant in the background. This can trick players into misstepping, but as this is as fast as a normal shot. Sometimes Charlie will shout "Hey, go!" which indicates a fast sequence of two shots between Phantom R and Charlie, with three in the final leg of the song. If the player passes a B rank, the ball becomes ignited. This effect is purely cosmetic though, and shows that the player is doing well.
