"Dark Nebula Battle"[derived from Japanese][1] is a boss battle theme from Kirby: Squeak Squad associated with Dark Nebula.


Kirby prepares to battle against Dark Nebula.

"Dark Nebula Battle" is a dramatic theme in A minor and 4/4. It begins with a rapid arpeggiated intro with a syncopated bassline. Elements of the intro continue playing throughout the rest of the theme. The melody comes in with delayed attack, featuring a rising fourth and second. After it plays twice, the second string section mirrors the first part with higher-pitched falling intonations, joined by an analogous chromatic brass counterpoint in the lower registers. The second section repeats with some variations and addition of repeated trumpet notes. The track then loops from the intro.
