Special! Best Mini ~2.5maime no Kare~ (スッペシャル!ベストミニ〜2.5枚目の彼〜) is an extended play CD released by pre-teen Japanese pop band Berryz Koubou. It is the third of three releases issued by the band in the space of four weeks, along with their second album Dai ② Seichouki and tenth single "Gag 100kaibun Aishite Kudasai".

The extended play contains five previously released tracks in the aforementioned tenth single's A-side, plus four earlier single sides. Only one track, "Arigatou! Otomodachi.", is a new track.

The extended play's release is apparently tied to the Christmas gift-giving season, as it's outer tray liner and booklet back cover depicts the group members standing in a light snowfall, while the inside tray liner and the CD's label depicts a cartoon snowman.

Former group member Ishimura Maiha appears but is not credited on the four previously released closing tracks on the extended play.

Momochi-friends.) at her final concert as an idol. Here, "Otomomochi" (おとももち; Momochi-friends) is a combination of "Otomodachi" (おともだち; friends) and Tsugunaga Momoko's nickname "Momochi" (ももち).
