"Ice/Crystal Area"[Japanese title] is a stage theme from Kirby & The Amazing Mirror heard in all standard areas of Peppermint Palace, as well as its entrance in Carrot Castle - Room 4.


Kirby finds treasure in the icy palace.

"Ice/Crystal Area" is a dulcet theme in C major and 4/4. It has a clear accompaniment and high-pitched melody with pizzicato instruments quietly playing in the background. The first phrase progresses through the basic harmonic functions. It is followed by a variation from a higher note with a counterpoint strictly a third or fourth away, notably without including wider intervals. A third variation based on the same general progression but a less defined melody plays twice, the second time with an analogous counterpoint. The second phrase plays again with a new ending. Basing on the third variation but with more intense accompaniment, a passage peaking at rising diminished chords leads to the conclusion. A brief bridge in the lower registers connects back to the start, and the track loops.
