"Ending"[Japanese title] is the staff credits theme from Kirby: Squeak Squad.


The delicious end of another great adventure.

"Ending" is a chipper piece in C major and 4/4. It begins with a solemn chord progression which introduces the melody, which is based around descending tonic and subdominant triads and generally simple in harmonic structure. This melody is remarkably similar to "Squeak Squad: Title". The percussive beat then comes in, setting the swing rhythm. The melody comes in with a flute and plays twice. Following it is a C minor variation beginning with a rising synth tetrachord. Through the harmonic subdominant, it soon returns to the cheery tonic. These two sections repeat. A new phrase is introduced, now featuring a descending scale-like passage from "Prism Plains", followed by a rapidly modulating chord progression. After going through several distant keys, it returns to C major's dominant. It halts on a trill, once again similarly to "Prism Plains". With an augmented triad, it briefly enters a darker section which shares characteristics with "Eerie Underground". However, the music almost immediately returns to the optimistic intro section, and the track loops.

Other appearances[edit]

An orchestral arrangement of "Ending" was present in the Kirby 30th Anniversary Music Festival, where it plays in a medley called "Kirby Endings" with other Kirby ending themes.
