"VS. Star Dream" is the name of a musical piece which first plays during the first phase of the battle with Star Dream in Kirby: Planet Robobot.


The battle begins.

"VS. Star Dream" is an energetic minor theme consisting of the themes that symbole the opposition between Star Dream and the now deceased President Haltmann, and Halberd Mode Kirby and Meta Knight. It starts with a slow arpeggiated piano intro with gradually fading beeping noises, based on "Vagrant Counting Song of Retrospection". Following the intro and opening of the battle, the theme from "First Contact" takes off at a faster pace in C minor, then F, F-sharp and B minor, with a rising counterpart, until they peak at a C major chord. "The Noble Haltmann" comes in F-sharp minor. After it plays out, "First Contact" repeats its original structure from D minor, and is once again followed up by "The Noble Haltmann", now in G-sharp minor, nonetheless with hopeful yet dramatic major harmonies. On the other hand, "Havoc Aboard the Halberd" plays in C-sharp minor from Halberd Mode's side, followed by an E minor "Kirby's Triumphant Return", a recurring motif in final boss themes in an unprecedented key. It does not reach its "Green Greens" resolution yet, as "First Contact" interrupts it to remind of the foe at hand. "Green Greens" does, however, come: first as a chiptune counterpoint, then its middle section, both in E minor. After a brief transition, the piece returns to C minor and loops.

  1. "I originally made "VS. Star Dream" based on information such as "the last boss this time will have the Halberd", and although it's a big song, I was able to finish it well...
    However, right after I completed it, I felt that I had heard something like this song somewhere before, and when I went to investigate, I realized that the beginning of this song was similar to the song "Spinning Jungle" from the previous game (Kirby: Triple Deluxe).
    Well, there is no problem since that song is also mine, but if anyone is reading too much into it, the answer is "it's just a coincidence that they are similar". (laughs)
