"Gamble Galaxy"[conjectural title] is a theme from Kirby: Squeak Squad that plays in Gamble Galaxy - Stage 3.


The adventure nears its climax in outer space.

"Gamble Galaxy" is a majestic and energetic in F major and 4/4. It begins with a triumphant trumpet intro not unlike those heard in Kirby Air Ride, in particular "Air Ride: Beanstalk Park". The percussion then picks up. A brief E flat repition and following rising fourth appear to somewhat tie in with "The Legendary Air Ride Machine". Instead, a major variation of "Green Greens" (similar to its iteration in "Kirby's Triumphant Return") plays, notably more tonally stable than the aforementioned tracks. After it plays twice, a second B-flat major section combining the rising intro motif and first section rhythm and descending phrases follows. This also repeats, and then a third lyrical section starts. The key begins to shift towards D minor, and hints of the first phrase "Kirby's Triumphant Return" appear within the scale-like descent. E-flat major arpeggios briefly take over, and the percussive solo repeats for the track to loop.
