Game appearances[edit]

Kirby: Squeak Squad[edit]

"Squeak Squad Appears!" debuts in this game. True to its name, the song plays when the Squeaks appear as Kirby grabs any large treasure chest, as well as in the cutscene after beating King Dedede in Prism Plains, when the Squeaks first show up. It can be found as Track 22 in the game's Sound Player.

Super Smash Bros. series[edit]

A remix of the theme, under the name of "Squeak Squad Theme", can be unlocked in Super Smash Bros. Brawl after picking a random CD for the Halberd stage. This remix is an electronic-rock version of the theme, and it features an extended opening and a sightly different loop. It is arranged by Hirokazu Tanaka.

The remix returns in Super Smash Bros. for Wii U, and is unlocked in the same way. It can be played in the The Great Cave Offensive stage. It also appears in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, now as a default song. Like all other Kirby songs in the game, it can now be played in any stage.

Kirby Mass Attack[edit]

A slow-paced bossa nova styled remix of the beginning of "Squeak Squad Appears!" plays inside Daroach's Airship. It is named "Daroach Reunion" in the game's Music Player, and was arranged by Shogo Sakai.

Kirby's Dream Collection Special Edition[edit]

When selecting Kirby: Squeak Squad in the Kirby's History mode, the original version of "Squeak Squad Appears!" plays.

Kirby Star Allies[edit]

The original version of "Squeak Squad Appears!" plays when selecting the "The Great Labyrinth Battle" Celebration Picture.

The theme also gets two distinct remixes. The first is a short one for Daroach's Dream Friend jingle, titled 参上、ドロッチェ! (He's Arrived! Daroach!) on the Kirby Star Allies: The Original Soundtrack. The second is a full rearrangement of the theme, playing during Morpho Knight's boss battle in Guest Star ???? Star Allies Go! and Soul Melter (EX) in The Ultimate Choice if player one is Daroach. It is titled 真!ドロッチェ団のテーマ (True! Squeak Squad Theme) in the soundtrack. Both themes are arranged by the original composer, Jun Ishikawa.

Other appearances[edit]

The original version of "Squeak Squad Appears!" was included in the Kirby's Dream Collection Special Edition Compilation Soundtrack.

In the Kirby 25th Anniversary Orchestra Concert, the theme is the last song present in the Kirby & The Amazing Mirror / Kirby: Squeak Squad Medley. This medley was arranged by Shogo Sakai.
