Soundtrack to Psycho Soldier

Psycho Soldier (サイコソルジャー, Saiko Sorujā) is a 1986 song for the game of the same name and is the first vocalized song in video game history. The song is also one of the main character themes for Athena Asamiya and continues to follow her in The King of Fighters series. When the game Psycho Soldier was released internationally, a different set of lyrics was composed to localize the title. This song was also used to advertise the Athena NES port.

The Japanese version is sung by Kaori Shimizu and the original lyrics were composed by Eikichi Kawasaki. It was covered by Reiko Fukui in The King of Fighters '94, Tamao Sato in The King of Fighters '96, and Yukina Kurisu in The King of Fighters '97.

The band, From the Ashes, rearranged the English version and posted it online.

Japanese lyrics

Saiko bōru ga hikari hanachi

Atena no sugata terashidasu no

Saiko sōdo ga yami wo saite

Atena wa yume wo sukui dasu no

Saiko pawaa wo kokoro ni himete

Hateshinai michi wo hashiru

Ima wa mō aozora mienai kedo


*(Faiyaa! Faiyaa! Saiko sorujaa! x4)


Saiko sōdu ga yami wo saite

Atena wa yume wo sukui dasu no

Saiko biimu no kagayaki nokoshi

Atena wa mirai wo motome tabidatsu

Honō no yōni moeru hitomi

Kibō no kakera wo mitsume

Ima wa mada namida wa misenai wa


*repeat


Saiko biimu no kagayaki nokoshi

Atena wa mirai wo motome tabidatsu

Dare hitori shiranai ashita

Hi no tori no sugata karite

Honō no yōni moeru hitomi

Kibō no kakera wo mitsume

Saiko pawaa wo kokoro ni himete

Hateshinai michi wo hashiru

Saiko pawaa

English translation

The Psycho ball's light bursts

And Athena's form shines

The Psycho Sword cuts through the darkness

Athena saves dreams

She hides the Psycho Power in her heart

To run on the endless path

Though she now can no longer see the blue sky


*(Fire! Fire! Psycho Soldier! x4)


The Psycho Sword cuts through the darkness

Athena saves dreams

The Psycho Beam's radiance sparkles

Athena sets out on a journey to decide the future

Her eyes burn like a flame

She stares at these shards of hope

And now cannot let her tears be seen yet


*repeat


The Psycho Beam's radiance sparkles

Athena sets out on a journey to decide the future

Towards tomorrow no one knows

Take the form of a phoenix

Her eyes burn like a flame

Stare at these shards of hope

She hides the Psycho Power in her heart

To run on the endless path

Psycho power

English Version
Lyrics
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
