Short Battle (named so in internal data) is a dark battle theme in Metroid Prime 2: Echoes. It was composed by Kenji Yamamoto.

It is used for several minibosses and recurring large creatures, such as the Bomb Guardian, Alpha Blogg, and Grapple Guardian battles; during Dark Pirate Commando encounters; and when the Tallon Metroids in the Biostorage Station room of the Space Pirate mining facility escape. Its usage in Dark Pirate Commando battles is very similar to the Chozo Ghosts and their accompanying theme in Metroid Prime; if Samus chooses not to engage with Commandos during encounters, the theme will fade as she leaves the room, or if she waits for the Pirates to leave.

Short Battle is heavily composed of percussive beats and various effects shared with other songs such as VS. Giant Beetle, Amorbis, and Hunters. Its melody, performed quietly underneath the percussion, is notably similar to Mysterious Statue Chamber.

The theme can be heard here.
