"Kirby Rocket's Big Blastoff" is a theme from Kirby and the Rainbow Curse which plays in the stage of the same name. It largely serves as a leitmotif associated with Kirby Rocket, though it also appears in a minor key arrangement as the stage theme for The Wild Red Yonder.


"Kirby Rocket's Big Blastoff" plays in the eponymous stage where it is first heard, and is often associated with the Kirby Rocket.

"Kirby Rocket's Big Blastoff" is a fast-paced rock song which is primarily associated with the Kirby Rocket transformation. It is composed in the key of E major and plays at 170 beats per minute with a 4/4 time signature. Much of the song is played with instruments like electric guitars, synthesizers, and piano, while the second section is slightly shorter and features a prominent saxophone solo.

Though "Kirby Rocket's Big Blastoff" appears to be the primary arrangement of the theme, due to being composed in major key and heavily associated with the Kirby Rocket transformation, it first appears in-game as "The Wild Red Yonder"; it is unclear which arrangement was created first. Regardless, "The Wild Red Yonder" is an epic-sounding orchestral song that is set to the key of E minor, the parallel to "Kirby Rocket's Big Blastoff", and it plays at 144 beats per minute with a 4/4 time signature. The melody of the song is prominently played by brass instruments, and halfway through the first section the song is also accompanied by a choir in the background as well as harp. The second and last section is played by a combination of brass and string instruments before ending with crash cymbals as the song loops.

Game appearances[edit]

Kirby and the Rainbow Curse[edit]

The Bastron opens fire on Kirby.

So far, Kirby and the Rainbow Curse is the first and only game where "Kirby Rocket's Big Blastoff" appears. It plays in both the eponymous stage and Back to the Battleship. "The Wild Red Yonder", meanwhile, plays throughout the stage of the same name.

Additionally, a more intense and faster arrangement known as "Fly to the Exit!" plays throughout the Bastron's escape sequence in both of the aforementioned stages. It is an arrangement that largely follows on "The Wild Red Yonder" in terms of structure and key, but is played at a faster 180 beats per minute. The entirety of the song is primarily played on electric guitars and riffs, much like "Kirby Rocket's Big Blastoff".

All three of the aforementioned songs can be unlocked in the Music Room by completing Sky-High Whispy Woods for the first time, and the songs can be found as tracks 88 ("The Wild Red Yonder"), 89 ("Kirby Rocket's Big Blastoff"), and 91 ("Fly to the Exit!") respectively.

The minor-key second section (which most closely resembles the "Fly to the Exit!" arrangement in terms of tempo) is used as a leitmotif for the song "Dark Crafter Battle", representing the Kirby Rocket transformation being used in the final battle against Dark Crafter. It is played in C minor, and is played at 176 beats per minute to match with the rest of the song.
