"Sea Stage"[Japanese title] is a stage theme from Kirby Super Star. It can be heard in Chapter 2 of Revenge of Meta Knight and in Aquarius in Milky Way Wishes. Aside from its reappearance in Kirby Super Star Ultra, this theme hasn't been remixed in any future game so far. It is often mistakenly referred to by English-speaking fans as "Grape Garden" due to Meta Knight's dialogue when the song first plays in Revenge of Meta Knight.
"Sea Stage" is an upbeat song in F major that plays around around 155 BPM. It has an intro that sounds a lot similar to the second portion of "Float Islands". After it goes into the first portion of the theme, it goes into the second portion which goes into D minor for a few moments and then goes back into F major just to then go into A flat major and have some sort of descending scale. It does this again (albeit with a different sounding instrument), and the song loops.
"Sea Stage" was arranged as part of a medley on the Kirby Ultra Super Deluxe Original Sound Track, alongside Helper's Rest, Green Greens, Peanut Plains, and Boarding the Halberd. The medley is called "ステージメドレー／アコースティックver." (Stage Medley / Acoustic ver.) and was arranged by Tadashi Ikegami, being Track 34 on the CD.
