"VS. Robo Dedede: Pinch"[derived from Japanese] is a track that plays during the final boss fight against Robo Dedede in Kirby's Dream Course. It's a quite frantic and desperate theme, as Kirby struggles against the menacing machine. It's also a bit of an obscure song, making very few reappearances afterward. This track has a sister track in the form of "VS. Robo Dedede".
