Epilogue is played during the final narrative and then it continues as the credits roll. The track keeps with the military theme, but has a much more positive sound than the other tracks of the game, allowing you to appreciate your victory even more. It is included as the second half of track 6 on the official soundtrack.

In the 8-bit soundtrack liner notes, Dean Tersigni writes:

From the storybook introduction that calls you to action, to the hollowness and eventual resounding victory of the epilogue... this is how video game music is supposed to sound. Bionic Commando carries on the tradition of leaving the player with a beautifully composed send-off.
