"Revenge of Meta Knight: Opening"[conjectural title] is the theme for the opening cutscene of Revenge of Meta Knight from Kirby Super Star and Kirby Super Star Ultra.


The Halberd's crew prepares for takeoff.

"Revenge of Meta Knight: Opening" is a short, cautious and tense theme in E minor and 4/4. While reverberated brass and strings outline the harmony with scattered bass and chords alternating with quiet percussion, the first notes of "Revenge of Meta Knight (Map)" play, allowing this theme to gradually pick up the pace and deliver an impulse to the next.
