Overview[edit | edit source]
The theme was composed and arranged by Hirokazu Ando, a prominent composer for the franchise, and most notably appears in the tracks "Patched Plains" (in major key) and "The Noble Haltmann" (in minor key) from the soundtrack.

The leitmotif first appeared during the Reboot, in the rips "Patched Plains - Kirby Planet Robobot" and "Green Greens - Kirby Super Star", both released the day after the game itself released outside of Japan.
It was a very minor recurring joke for the rest of Season 1, appearing as a joke in 12 rips total (6 within rips of Kirby music) and not making much of an impact in the fanbase.
It became a major recurring joke during the beginning of The SilvaGunner Christmas Comeback Crisis, to fit in with the series being heavily inspired by Kirby Planet Robobot. As well, in "YOU can join the fight! - A Recruitment Video from The Voice", it's explained that the motif should be used in rips to pay tribute to President Haltmann.
Since then, it has become a very frequently used meme on the channel. In fact, it has the most appearances of any song that originated from a video game. Most of its appearances are melody changes, and like many recurring jokes, the use of the major or minor theme depends on the rip.
