"Hot Wings", named "Hot Wings's[sic] Theme" in the British English version, is a theme from Kirby's Epic Yarn and Kirby's Extra Epic Yarn associated with the boss with the same name. It was composed by Tomoya Tomita.
Kirby finds the fiery Hot Wings.
"Hot Wings" is a piquant theme in G Dorian mode with a mixed meter. The intro starts with a low G ostinato from brass and piano, and has abrupt chords. The piano and xylophone's diatonic melody revolving around a D comes in at 9/4 and plays twice with minor variations. More abrupt and dramatic chords follow up in 6/4 with a grace note leading from D to E, and harp passages in between. The 9/4 section repeats with a reed instrument now in the lead, followed once more by the chords in 6/4. The brass then plays a syncopated bridge with distant, sharp harmonies, as the strings hold an A, creating many dissonances. A virtuosic descending piano passage and final abrupt chord conclude the piece, which then repeats the 6/4 chord section and loops from the first 9/4 section.
