This article is about the boss battle theme from Kirby & The Amazing Mirror, and should not be confused with other similarly named boss battle themes.

"Boss Battle Theme"[1] is a theme from Kirby & The Amazing Mirror that plays during most boss battles of the game.


The boss battle against King Golem.

"Boss Battle Theme" is an agitated theme in C minor and 4/4. It begins with a low and tense dominant-tonic bassline. The melody comes in in a series of descending arpeggios which soon gain many accidentals. Following the harmonic progressions established in the first few seconds, a transitional section alternating between a G and A-flat with short riffs with a rhythmical pattern reminiscent of "Deep Sea Area"'s melody that grow into a secondary motif that peaks at a high C with heavy vibrato. A more intense bassline mirroring the intro continues, and the secondary melody ends in a chromatically descending passage. The track then loops.
