Fun Castle is a stage theme from the game Kirby Mass Attack. This theme can only be heard in Dedede Resort - Stage 10 and hasn't been brought back in any other Kirby game so far.

Composition[edit]

"Fun Castle" is a jolly, rather unserious-sounding theme in the key of G major. It is composed in the vein of a polka; it features a bouncy beat in 2/4 time that is played with brass instruments and bass. The theme starts with a melody played by a flute-like instrument playing the melody that goes up and down with a piano playing four descending notes afterwards. The flute then plays a trill twice and then goes down a broken chord. This melody is repeated a second time but is an octave higher and has a harmony added to it. The theme then moves to the second portion of the theme, which is somewhat louder and has a different ending. The theme changes instruments and then does a "call and response" portion played with many accidental notes. The "call" is played by some brass-like instruments, while the response is played with softer woodwinds. This portion is repeated once again, but has a differing ending (which even goes into D major briefly). When this portion concludes, the theme has 4 measures of percussion and then loops.

Other appearances[edit]

This theme and Meadow Breeze appear in a medley in the Kirby Memorial Arrangements, named Happy Castle in the Grasslands. It was arranged by Hirokazu Ando.
