"Psycho Soldier Theme" is a remix of the main theme from SNK's classic side-scrolling platformer Psycho Soldier, and sometimes considered the main theme of the game's protagonist, Athena Asamiya. It is notable for being the first video game song to have recorded vocals.

The track comes in two versions, in the original Japanese and the translated English version. However, both have significant differences, mainly in the English version; as it lacks a second and third verse, the arrangement adds a saxophone solo and replays the first verse in their place. The song's lyrics were composed by Eikichi Kawasaki and is sung by Kotera Kanako.

The song was added in the v6.0.0 update to Super Smash Bros. Ultimate as a part of Challenger Pack 4.

Lyrics

Romaji

SAIKOO BOORU ga hikari hanachi
ATENA no sugata terashi dasuno
SAIKOO PAWAA o kokoro ni himete
Hateshinai michi o hashiru
Ima wa mou aozora mienai kedo
FAIYAA! FAIYAA! SAIKOO SORUJAA
FAIYAA! FAIYAA! SAIKOO SORUJAA


SAIKOO SOODO ga yami o saite
ATENA wa yume o sukui dasuno
Honoo no you ni moeru hitomi
Kibou no kakera o mitsume
Ima wa mada namida wa misenai wa
FAIYAA! FAIYAA! SAIKOO SORUJAA

Hinotori no sugata karite
Dokomademo tsuzuku sora o tobu no
FAIYAA! FAIYAA! SAIKOO SORUJAA
FAIYAA! FAIYAA! SAIKOO SORUJAA

Native Script

サイコボールが 光 放ち
アテナの姿 照らしだすの
サイコパワーを心に秘めて
はてしない道を 走る
今はもう青空 見えないけど
ファイヤー! ファイヤー! サイコソ\ルジャー
ファイヤー! ファイヤー! サイコソ\ルジャー


サイコソ\ードが 闇を裂いて
アテナは夢を 救いだすの
炎のように 燃える瞳
希望のかけらを 見つめ
今はまだ涙は 見せないわ
ファイヤー! ファイヤー! サイコソ\ルジャー
ファイヤー! ファイヤー! サイコソ\ルジャー


サイコビームの 輝き残し
アテナは未来を求め 旅立つ
誰ひとり 知らない明日
火の鳥の姿 かりて
どこまでもつづく 空を翔ぶの
ファイヤー! ファイヤー! サイコソ\ルジャー
ファイヤー! ファイヤー! サイコソ\ルジャー

English

Athena's name is magic, mystery is what you see.
Her crystal is the answer, fighting fair to keep us free.
She's just a little girl with power inside, burning bright.
You'd better hide if you are bad.
(she'll get you)
She'll read your mind and find if you believe in right or wrong.
FIRE! FIRE! PSYCHO SOLDIER!
FIRE! FIRE! PSYCHO SOLDIER!
