"Guardian Angel: Landia"[2] is a theme that is associated primarily with Landia. It also plays during certain other boss battles in Kirby's Return to Dream Land and Kirby's Return to Dream Land Deluxe.

Composition[edit]

The adventurers battling a furious Landia.

The theme is composed in 12/8 time in a minor key with symphonic instrumentation. It sounds noticeably melancholy, with a slow-paced rhythm resembling a funeral dirge, unlike the typically upbeat boss battle themes throughout the series.

Game appearances[edit]

Kirby's Return to Dream Land / Kirby's Return to Dream Land Deluxe[edit]

As the name indicates, "Guardian Angel: Landia" first appears when battling Landia in the final stage of Dangerous Dinner in Kirby's Return to Dream Land. It also plays for two other bosses: the second phase of HR-D3's battle in Extra Mode and The True Arena (only in the original), and the first phase of Galacta Knight's battle (in both games).

Kirby: Planet Robobot[edit]

The theme reappears when fighting Landia in its standard form in the Team Kirby Clash Sub-Game of Kirby: Planet Robobot, unaltered from its original appearance.

Team Kirby Clash Deluxe[edit]

The theme reappears in Team Kirby Clash Deluxe in the same circumstances as the original Team Kirby Clash.

Super Kirby Clash[edit]

In Super Kirby Clash, "Guardian Angel: Landia" is remixed when battling Landia in its initial form at the Empyrean. The remix's primary difference is the addition of a heavy percussion section, as well as some additional electronic effects.
