This article is about the music track. For the stage itself, see Cocoa Cave.

Cocoa Cave is the theme that first played in the Cocoa Cave stage in Kirby Super Star. It was initially composed by Jun Ishikawa and Dan Miyakawa. The theme has had a number of rearrangements, but not as many as other more notable tracks throughout the Kirby series.

Game appearances[edit]

Kirby Super Star (Ultra)[edit]

The Cocoa Cave theme made its first appearance in Kirby Super Star, and naturally reappears in the remake Kirby Super Star Ultra. As its name implies, it first appears in the Cocoa Cave stage in Dyna Blade. The theme also plays in the Planet Cavius stage in Milky Way Wishes.

Kirby Air Ride[edit]

In Kirby Air Ride, there are actually two distinct versions of the Cocoa Cave theme. The first is the version titled Target Flight, which is an orchestral rearrangement of the song which plays in the Target Flight and High Jump Stadium modes in City Trial. The song is largely faithful to the original, but features an extra bit of melody at the end before looping.

The second track is a techno-based version of the song which plays in the Metal course in Top Ride. This version is simply titled Metal, and is arranged by Jun Ishikawa[1].

Kirby: Canvas Curse[edit]

A slow paced remix of the Cocoa Cave theme plays in Rift Ruin.

Kirby and the Rainbow Curse[edit]

A remix of the Cocoa Cave theme plays in some parts of the Gondola Ride stage in Orange Woodland. This version is titled Grievous Gondola Ride.

Kirby: Planet Robobot[edit]

The Metal version from Kirby Air Ride is reused in Patched Plains - Stage 6 EX.

Other Appearances[edit]

Track 43 from the Kirby's Dream Collection: Special Edition Compilation Soundtrack titled "Electro Kirby" features a remix of Cocoa Cave in the background at part 0:39-0:56
