Hirokazu Ando (安藤浩和 Ando Hirokazu, born March 2, 1969) is a senior sound composer at HAL Laboratory, one of the main composers of the Kirby series, and the composer of Super Smash Bros.. He is best known for his collaboration with Jun Ishikawa and his recent preference for acoustic themes and orchestrated pieces in games such as Kirby's Epic Yarn and Kirby's Return to Dream Land.

Hirokazu Ando's artistic influences include classical pianist Claude Debussy, Ryuichi Sakamoto of the band Yellow Magic Orchestra, Dragon Quest composer Koichi Sugiyama, and Jun Ishikawa.[1] On his songs, he plays live bass, ukelele, and melodica.
