"Kirby Quest" is the theme for the eponymous Sub-Game from Kirby Mass Attack. It was composed by Shogo Sakai.


The beginning of a quest.

The base version of "Kirby Quest" is a dramatic theme in C minor and 4/4. It has a straightforward motif circling around E flat, played by strings. It is mirrored with a wider secondary motif in the dominant before the main motif plays again, now with a trumpet counterpoint with a rising fourth similar to that of "Green Greens". The trumpet takes over in the final segment with descending chords. After this, a harp arpeggio follows and leads to a suspense, and then the track loops.
