"Haldera Volcano" is the name of a musical piece which first appeared in Kirby's Return to Dream Land in the first stage of Dangerous Dinner.


Water Kirby narrowly avoids becoming the Iron Barbar's dinner.

"Haldera Volcano" is notable in its relatively short but fast-paced melody. It can either be counted as standard 4/4 or a faster 6/8. It features a largely traditional orchestral instrumentation, with percussion, strings, brass, and most notably a xylophone. The percussion forms a solid rolling baseline for the brass and strings to build a melody on top of, creating an air of urgency to the track that fits the fast-paced nature of the stages it features in.

Game appearances[edit]

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

"Haldera Volcano" first appeared in Kirby's Return to Dream Land, and also returns in the remake. It can be heard in the first and second stages of Dangerous Dinner. It can be found as track 65 Sound Test (track 116 in Kirby's Return to Dream Land Deluxe).

An medley of "Sandy Wilds" and "Haldera Volcano" called "Red Sands Remix" plays during the stages in the Pyred Dimension of the Magolor Epilogue. This remix was arranged by Hirokazu Ando, and can be found as track 174 in the Jukebox.

Kirby: Triple Deluxe[edit]

In Kirby: Triple Deluxe, the original version of "Haldera Volcano" is reused in Endless Explosions - Stage 7 EX. It can also be found as track 78 in the Jukebox.

Kirby Fighters Deluxe and Kirby Fighters 2[edit]

The original version of the song is the default track of the Haldera Volcano battle stage in both games. In Kirby Fighters 2, a secret version of the song can be unlocked for that stage upon reaching Fighters Rank 89. This version heavily remixes the song with more techno-like instrumentation and synths.
