Ending (Metroid) is a musical arrangement by Hirokazu "Hip" Tanaka that plays during the credits in Metroid and its remake Metroid: Zero Mission. It was remixed for Super Smash Bros. Brawl and Super Smash Bros. for Wii U and plays on the Norfair stage in both games. In the Metroid Prime Hunters: First Hunt high score board, a remix of this theme plays.

The theme was meant to bring levity after an otherwise entirely cathartic score concludes. Tanaka was inspired by the scoring of the 1984 film, Birdy, to attempt a similar approach in Metroid.[1]


The original theme can be heard here: [1], the theme from Zero Mission here: [2], the theme from First Hunt here: [3] and the theme from Super Smash Bros. here: [4].
