True Arena Showdown
"True Arena Showdown"[derived from Japanese] is a music track that was first heard in The True Arena in Kirby Super Star Ultra. It is based on "Arena Showdown" - having a similar melody - but features a different and more aggressive composition, making heavy use of electric guitar-like instruments and heavy percussion. The track also features a tempo upswing in the middle before slowing down for a brief brass section before repeating.
