"Dangerous Dinner" is a level hub theme from Kirby's Return to Dream Land. This theme plays for the level of the same name, and was composed by Hirokazu Ando.


"Dangerous Dinner" is a fast-paced, intense theme in the key of D minor, and can be seen as a darker version of "The Adventure Begins". This features a piano ostinato in the low registers with heavy percussion. A trombone-like instrument plays the first portion of the melody, which is borrowed from "Four Adventurers: Cookie Country" as heard in "The Adventure Begins". This portion is played a second time (albeit with some extra instrumentation) before it switches to the second portion. This latter half is played by a higher-pitched woodwind lead instrument and borrows the main melody from "The Adventure Begins". This part is also played again, but with a different ending. After eight bars of instrumentation reminiscent an interlude from the aforementioned theme, the track loops.
