"Egg Engines" is the level hub theme of the level with the same name in Kirby's Return to Dream Land and Kirby's Return to Dream Land Deluxe. This theme was composed by Jun Ishikawa[1] and can be found as the 54th theme in the original game's Sound Test and the 103rd theme in the remake's Jukebox.


Kirby about to enter the first stage of Egg Engines.

"Egg Engines" is a theme in the key of D minor. To match with the theme of its level, the theme has mechanical-like percussion and eight-note rhythm played by deep string instruments in the background. The theme starts with an upbeat, and then has a call and response part for 16 measures (played by a chime like and woodwind like instrument, respectfully). After the call and response part, some vocals and synth can be heard (along with some piston-like sounds) can be heard. The portion after this contains a piano solo that first starts playing various chords, then starts improvising a bit. Not too long afterwards, some heavy instrumentation can be heard, and the song then loops.
