''[=HarmoKnight=]'',
known as ''Rhythm Hunter: Harmoknight'' [=HarmoKnight=]'' in Japan, is a Rhythm/Platformer created by Creator/GameFreak and their first non-''Franchise/{{Pokemon}}'' game since ''VideoGame/DrillDozer''.

Tempo, having found a magical staff [[ItMakesSenseInContext in the belly of a beast]], must bring it to Symphony City to give to a Harmoknight who could put an end to Gargan and his crones. Along the way he meets Lyra, a sharpshooting archer, and Tyko and Cymbi, who use drums and cymbals to take down their foes. Together, they reach Symphony City, only to find out that Gargan had captured its princess, [[DistressedDamsel Ariana]], putting everyone within the city into a deep slumber afterwards. With no one else to stop him, it's up to Tempo and his friends to find Gargan and defeat him themselves.

* BrutalBonusLevel: In the aptly named "Final Trial" stage, the player has to run through a LethalLavaLand with narrow platforms and rings of fire, populated by swarms of enemies that appear at very short notice, all while at an awkward camera position.

* NeverSayDie: Averted by Gargan, highlighting his KnightOfCerebus status.
-->'''Gargan:''' Well, if you don't want to die, you'd best go back the way you came.

Added DiffLines:

* SecondHandStorytelling: Half way through Revisiting the Shore, Tappy humorously alludes to an encounter between him and the monster on the beach.

** He also does this in the Demo, saying that certain parts of the game won't be revealed until purchasing the full version. Understandably, Tappy and Tempo are confused.

* VileVillainSaccharineShow: You have a CuteShotaroBoy as the hero, a [[CivilizedAnimal talking bunny]] as his sidekick, and a PluckyGirl and a {{Badbutt}} as tritagonists. Then you have Gargan, a HumanoidAbomination PlanetaryParasite who plans on taking over Melodia. At first, he seems like your everyday run-of-the-mill villain, kidnapping the princess and such. Then you discover that he's [[CerebusSyndrome slowly brainwashing her to turn her into one of his kind.]] ''And he nearly succeeds.''

Added DiffLines:

* VideoGameCrueltyPotential: You can make Tappy lose his balance and drop his sign by swinging your staff as you run past him.

Added DiffLines:

* OminousPipeOrgan: The seventh and final world, Baroque Volcano, is a mix of this trope and LethalLavaLand. The levels look like your standard lava level, but organ pipes are partially submerged in the lava and the MiniBoss comes out of a giant organ (and is knocked back into it after the rematch). Additionally, the map screen's VariableMix and the MiniBoss theme use pipe organ as their main instrument.


* WhatHappenedToTheMouse: The game never adequately explains exactly how [[spoiler: Otamama managed to swallow Woodwin's staff]].
