"Battle with Friends: Waddle Dee"[conjectural title] is the theme that plays during Kirby's battle against Waddle Doo in Kirby 64: The Crystal Shards.


Battling a clumsy foe.

"Battle with Friends: Waddle Dee" is a somewhat frantic yet lighthearted theme with scarce instrumentation, playful in contrast to its two successors. Playing in C minor, it borrows many elements from the Mini-Game theme from Kirby's Dream Land 3, such as the main motif's general movement and progression, the ending alternation of C and B-flat, character of the ending phrase and final fanfare.

"Battle with Friends: Waddle Dee" with its distinct minor key would later go on to serve as the basis of "Ninja Dojo - Title", another variant of the Mini-Game theme.

Other appearances[edit]

The theme is part of a medley in the Hoshi no Kirby 64 Original Soundtrack, packaged alongside "Battle with Friends: Adeleine" and "Battle with Friends: King Dedede". The overall medley is titled "Battle with Friends", and is track 12.
