So upbeat and happy it could kill the devil.

Kirby's Dream Land / 2 / 3
- Green Greens, the first stage song, and basically the theme song of the series. Most games in the series have some version of this, such as Kirby's Adventure/Nightmare in Dream Land and Super Star, as well was Ultra, and many songs have this part as a Recurring Riff. And then there's this remix.
- Castle Lololo, the second stage song, while not as famous as Green Greens, has seen a recent surge in usage as Dyna Blade's theme, such as in Air Ride and Super Star Ultra though that much harsher version was first used in the recap of Kirby of the Stars' final episode ("Fly! Kirby of the Stars"), of the next-to-last episode ("Destruction! Nightmare's Huge Fortress").
- Float Islands, the third stage song, which has been used in Super Star, both in its normal usage and remixed as The Rest Area music, later used in SSBM.
- Bubbly Clouds the fourth stage song, which has been used in Super Star in its normal usage and was also remixed as the Grape Garden theme in Kirby's Adventure.
- The original 8-bit version of the King Dedede Theme.
- "Together with the Spring Breeze" from Super Star was taken from the original Kirby's Dream Land (as was everything else about Spring Breeze), and, believe it or not, it sounds pretty much equal in terms of awesomeness, even in tiny 8-bit MIDI synth.
- From Kirby's Dream Land 2, the songs of Big Forest, Coo the Owl and Cloudy Park are some favorites.
- From Kirby's Dream Land 3, Iceberg and Sand Canyon 1, the latter of which has become something of a music fad.
- Ripple Field is also a great catchy, if not relaxing tune in the same vein as Kirby Super Star's Float Island.
- Another Ripple Field track has a sort of submerged sound to it, perfectly suitable for the underwater level in which it is first heard. It could also give Sand Canyon a run for its money in terms of catchiness.
- The miniboss music is fast-paced and catchy.
- The Credits music may bring a tear to your eye.
- The final bosses.
Kirby's Adventure / Nightmare in Dream Land
Kirby Super Star / Ultra
- The Super Star version of King Dedede's Theme, which adds in the second part of the famous song.
- There's also this electro house remix.
- Then there's the obligatory Brawl Remix. Which is arguably even better when slowed down.
- On the subject of King Dedede themes: the Masked Dedede battle music from Ultra.
- And speaking of Masked Dedede, there's this.
- Together with the Spring Breeze
- Marshmallow Castle, Cocoa Cave, and Candy Mountain all need more love.
- The Great Cave Offensive theme, as well as the second theme, which is likely twice as epic.
- Of course, Gourmet Race.
- Both Halberd themes (Halberd Warship, Taking Over the Halberd).
- Revenge of Meta Knight ending theme.
- Its counterpart version for the Revenge of the King in Ultra is just as awesome. It's the same piece of music, but played in a much more somber tone during what has to be the most major Tear Jerker of the game and really helps evoke the emotion during the cutscene of King Dedede walking off into the sunset in defeat with his Waddle Dees still sticking by him loyally.
- The epic Marx Battle!
- Made better in Super Star Ultra.
- The epic sweetness of this tiny piece of music that plays during the cutscene after the Marx battle ranks way up there, too (It is followed by the normal "credits" music). That first bendy note that plays right on time with a huge, screen-whiteout (albeit SNES or DS-grade) explosion is just sweet.
- The credits music. Simply beautiful.
- This delightfully creepy "Final Four" theme from Ultra's True Arena.
- Great Cave Offensive.
- Why not finish up the soundtrack with these official boss and stage medleys?
Kirby 64: The Crystal Shards
Kirby's Air Ride
- The Kirby's Air Ride soundtrack needs some love! Here's Celestial Valley and Frozen Hillside, both of which even got into Super Smash Bros. without needing remixes.
- And while we're at it, how about Sky Sands?
- And Machine Passage.
- Magma Flows.
- Nebula Belt.
- Top Ride's Grass level has quite a catchy tune. Now listen to a Eurobeat version of the same song! Initial D + Kirby = MULTI-
TRACKWARP STAR DRIFTING!
- Compare the Grass theme to this and watch it blow your mind.
- Speaking of Top Ride, Light and Sky.
- City Trial (Backside) sounds cool, right from the start.
- Air Ride is also notable for having many remixes of earlier Kirby tracks. For starters, here's the Target Flight theme, an orchestral version of Super Star's Cocoa Cave.
- Station Fire. The build-up of tension, as well as the resulting climax, are great.
- Legendary Air Ride Machine.
- The Main Menu music, following the tradition set by Super Smash Bros. Melee, is magnificent.
Kirby and the Amazing Mirror
Kirby: Canvas Curse
- Drawcia Sorceress says hi. There's just something about pipe organs...
- Bonus points for the pacing of the song; if the player gets all hits in the first two passes, the song picks up just as she starts summoning enemies and changing the background color, which makes a nice compliment to it.
- And Drawcia Soul says REEEEE! There's just something about disharmonious crackling and rapid-fire booping!
Kirby's Epic Yarn
Kirby Squeak Squad
- The Squeaks themselves have an outstanding Leitmotif that makes an appearance whenever they show up, with a number of variants depending on the situation.
- Treasure Scuffle, which pops up whenever one of the Squeaks is acting as a miniboss, trying to steal a treasure box from Kirby.
- The appropriately named boss theme, when you face off against Doc's machines, or big boss Daroach, takes their theme and makes it more fitting of a full boss than the sillier Treasure Scuffle.
- Their theme becomes extremely rockin' in its Super Smash Bros Brawl rendition. And it has extremely stiff competion in that game alone.
- Gamble Galaxy's third theme is appropriately called "The Hero of Dream Land". And for a good reason: You're about to save the world from a piece of Dark Matter that was sealed away in a chest. As you enter the third and final stage, the music kicks in to tell you that shit is about to go down.
- The Final Stretch, the theme that plays while chasing Dark Nebula with the Triple Star in hand. The way the song builds up coupled with the visuals of the level does an excellent job at setting up the final battle.
Kirby Mass Attack
- If any of the music reminds you of MOTHER 3 that's because it's by the same composer, Shogo Sakai.
- The Squeaks make a surprise return, in a helpful role. Whenever Kirby boards their airship to ask Daroach for treasure info, there's a calm version of their leitmotif playing, sounding elevator music. It's actually quite relaxing.
- Up for tree to tree? What about Kirby Collecting? Or are you in the mood for Game Over? How about Terrifying Enemy?
- Kirby Quest, a mini game in Mass Attack, has amazing music all around.
- The Title Screen is amazing right from the start. With an intro like this, you know you're in for amazing battle music.
- There's also Action Heaven, a remix of Macho-san (Max Flexer in the dub) theme from Kirby of the Stars anime! The music is every bit as awesome as his surprise cameo!
- A few tracks from Kirby Air Ride were also in the game, such as Sky Sands, Frozen Hillside, and Magma Flows.
- The theme of the Skull Gang, which gets an epic Boss Remix for the showdown with Necrodeus.
Kirby's Return to Dream Land
- The music from the Kirby GCN trailer is just amazing. It was brought back in this game as the theme for normal bosses in The Arena.
- The otherworldy segments where a purple wall of doom slowly covers the area has a frantic yet intense tune.
- The Challenge Stages are the new Kirby equivalents to Purple Coin challanges, right down to the catchy music. Good luck getting those Platinum Medals...
- And for the Item Challenge, you get a medley of Green Greens tunes for music. This tune is also used when in the two HAL Rooms.
- The game included a few awesome remixes of old tracks:
- The final boss music. That violin is godly.
- In contrast to the final boss, the Staff Roll is a very upbeat and calming tune that still manages to sound incredible, especially further on in.
- The normal boss battle music. It doesn't exactly scream "beating stuff up", but it's very catchy.
- The Super Ability theme is perfect for when you're about to go on a rampage.
- Grand Doomer battle theme.
- 5-2 from Nutty Noon deserves mention, especially as it plays with a beautiful sunset.
- The Aurora Theme from White Wafers. The chilling wind sound is a nice touch.
- Dangerous Dinner Stage 3. Bonus points for also playing during the movie where Magolor reveals that he was Evil All Along.
- And the Magma theme, which also plays in Dangerous Dinner.
- Sewer Area.
- Landia's battle theme is completely different from most of the other battle themes in the game, and given the circumstances of the fight it's very fitting.
- Complete EX Mode at 100% and you will be treated to a new file select theme that is a remix of Vegetable Valley from Kirby's Adventure.
- Another Dimension, the theme of the final level, makes one want to keep charging ahead for the sake of Dream Land.
Kirby Triple Deluxe
- All the themes for the final bosses: From the organ and guitar combo of phase 1, to the ethereal piano of phase 2 to absolute finality of Sectonia Soul.
- Two returning boss themes: Masked Dedede and Dark Meta Knight.
- Endless Explosions 1. Dubstep in Kirby? They went there.
- Tough Enemy. This song really makes you feel that you're fighting the bosses again, but this time, they're not pulling any punches.
- Attack!, the regular boss theme, is awesome on its own since its frantic nature fits all of the boss fights.
- Coo's Forest from Kirby Fighters remixes the Coo and Rick themes from Kirby's Dream Land 2 into one epic whole.
- Before the Boss. Wanna hang out in the pre-boss area and just listen to it for a while?
- True Arena Rest Area, an extremely emotional remix of Ripple Star from Kirby 64.
- The theme for Hypernova Kirby is adventure-filled and keeps you going as you effortlessly inhale anything in your way.
- Ripple Red, an even better remix of the already awesome Ripple Star theme.
- Dedede's Royal Payback, the song that plays after Masked Dedede Turns Red, is a remix of a remix of King Dedede's Theme, each remix more awesome than the last.
