"Mysterious Trap" is a stage theme from Kirby: Triple Deluxe that plays in the third and fourth stages of Endless Explosions. It was composed by Hirokazu Ando.[1]


Kirby works his way out of the trap.

"Mysterious Trap" is an enigmatic piece in natural C minor and 4/4. Its melody is based on perfect consonances (fourths, fifths and octaves), with many ornaments in between. The melody is played twice, first by an oud, and then an oboe with a persistent countermelody playing in tandem. The harmonies of the melody continue during the transition to the second section. Here, a flute and orchestra bells play the melody in E minor. A piccolo brings it another octave up. The lower registers join back briefly, and a transition with an extended chord progression ends in a rising A-flat major chord before leading back down to the original height, where the chords persist a little longer. The track then loops.

Other appearances[edit]

The theme is present in The Sound of Kirby Café, in Track 8: Sweet Honey, Pitiful Blooming / Mysterious Trap ~ ​The World to Win, where it's paired with "The World to Win" in a guitar and piano solo medley.
