Title Origin Official
Loops Yes

Altered Beast (Power Up) plays on each stage after you've collected enough orbs and morphed into an animal.

This song is the second half of part 1 of track 2 on the album the album Galaxy Force. It's also track 3 on Sega System 16: Complete Soundtrack Vol.2. The title on both albums is "Altered Beast", but only the later album affixes the "(Power Up)" subtitle, and that is assumed to be correct.

Like the original game, the Master System and Mark III release of Altered Beast plays Altered Beast for the music after a player transforms into a werewolf, but unlike the arcade game, it only plays the song for the werewolf and gold wolf. For the dragon and weretiger transformations, they play the Gaum-Hermer (Boss Theme).

The Master System release of Altered Beast plays the song on the SN76489, but Mark III plays on the YM2413.
