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. The theme is remixed for the Shooting Range in Metroid Prime: Federation Force, which features targets with Space Pirate likenesses. 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.
