Orugōru (オルゴール), literally Music Box or Orgel, is a First Stage obstacle that was first introduced in SASUKE 31, replacing Hedgehog from the previous tournament as the third obstacle. The function of the obstacle required competitors to use their hands and feet to climb over the red circles while holding onto them as well. At the end of the obstacle, competitors must time dismount correctly, as the landing platform is a bit tricky. The obstacle moved clockwise, which makes this obstacle hard to cross over.

In the first half of the obstacle, the red circles were arranged in rows of eight that were placed around the obstacle. As the competitors went to the second part of the obstacle, the circles decreased in number, making it harder for the competitors to traverse the obstacle with the circles had a larger gap.

In SASUKE 32, the obstacle was slightly modified so that competitors couldn't climb up to the top of the obstacle. It also relocated as the fourth obstacle due to the introduction of Quad Steps.

It should be noted that during filming of the tournaments, there was no music played on set. But in the broadcasts, there was music added every time a competitor approaching the obstacle.

Even though it has a good knockout rate, it was replaced in the following tournament by Fish Bone, an obstacle originated from KUNOICHI, which has since had a slightly higher knockout rate.
