The Space Pirates battle theme first appeared in Metroid Prime and later was remixed in Metroid Prime 2: Echoes, Metroid Prime 3: Corruption and Metroid Prime Pinball. Each version has a different mix to it, with Echoes' version adding extra drums and Corruption's version adding extra sounds. In Metroid Prime: Federation Force, the theme is remixed for the Shooting Range, which features targets with Space Pirate likenesses, and M22: Convergence. The Echoes version is included with the Samus Archives Sound Selection CD. In the Metroid Prime & Fusion Original Soundtracks, this theme was titled VS Space Pirates.
The theme sounds similar to the track "Futile Escape" from the movie Aliens, a film which some Metroid games have taken plot inspiration from.
The theme from Prime can be heard here, the theme from Echoes here, the theme from Corruption here, the theme from Pinball here, the Federation Force shooting range theme here, and the Federation Force M22 theme here.
