As far as I can tell from listening to its MIDI, the "Meta Knight" sheet music from Kirby and the Amazing Mirror currently on NinSheetMusic is derived from the MIDI file discussed in http://www.vgmusic.com/file/11844b050c09e689a0787ec468d6caf5.html#disqus_thread...

...which doesn't really sound like this at all:

Yup, that's the music you hear when you fight Dark Meta Knight. You don't even fight Meta Knight in Kirby and the Amazing Mirror! Sure, Dark Meta Knight tries copying Meta Knight's colours, but he gets labelled with question marks for that.

I believe that the "Meta Knight" sheet music from Kirby and the Amazing Mirror thoroughly needs a replacement...and I'd appreciate it if it were renamed "Dark Meta Knight".

(I write my transcriptions on Musescore and finalize them on Finale Notepad 2012. Formatting may be out of whack.)

Well done! Actually this looks great. I think the only things I have to mention are the following:
-Formatting as you already mentioned.
-That crazy run at measure 19; that is, the playability thereof. It's a bit scary. Maybe there's an easier way to play it.
-I think the time signature makes more sense as 3/2 after the opening rather than 6/4 based on the function of the percussion (namely the bass drum and snare). Even though those aren't going to be in the piano arrangement, they are relevant to the piece.

I'd appreciate it if it were renamed "Dark Meta Knight".
I fixed the title on the sheet here, but I think if you go to "NSM Panel" and "Edit" your submission, you can also change the title of the submission. I'd strongly recommend you do that as well.

Sadly, because this is a replacement, I currently don't see an option to change the title of my submission in the NSM Panel after I click "Edit". I can change the subject of this thread, though.

In the meantime, I hope you don't mind that I took your edited version of my .mus file in https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/93589150/Meta%20Knight.mus, edited the score accordingly, and then changed out the files accordingly. (Youtube on 0.5 speed is so disillusioning...not only did I get the crazy run at Bar 19 wrong, I also got the intro's accompaniment wrong...)

I agree that the drums are pretty out of whack in this theme, so I'll leave the 3/2 time signature in.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kirby_%26_the_Amazing_Mirror says that the first composer's name is Hironobu Inagaki, and that name returns results on Google such as http://vgmdb.net/artist/1393 and http://www.giantbomb.com/hironobu-inagaki/3040-55368/, while the spelling Hironoby Inagaki (as in https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/93589150/Meta%20Knight.mus) returns 2 Google results, and they're likely irrelevant.

Ah. Got the submission title fixed.

Youtube on 0.5 speed is so disillusioning...
Just wait until you try Audiostretch! :D

This is a summary bump that I have taken JDMEK5's edited version of my Dark Meta Knight transcription, https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/93589150/Meta%20Knight.mus, made these changes to it by the time I made the post I quoted, and changed out all 3 files:

The crazy run at Bar 19 should now be faithful to the original music. Notably, the notes are fewer and longer (although I'm not 100% sure whether 16th notes or 8th-note-triplets-on-8th-notes are harder at 216 quarter notes per minute).

The accompaniment in Bars 1-2 is now similarly more accurate.

Repeat from my last post:
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kirby_%26_the_Amazing_Mirror says that the first composer's name is Hironobu Inagaki, and that name returns results on Google such as http://vgmdb.net/artist/1393 and http://www.giantbomb.com/hironobu-inagaki/3040-55368/, while the spelling Hironoby Inagaki (as in https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/93589150/Meta%20Knight.mus) returns 2 Google results, and they're likely irrelevant.

The updaters talked privately about this one, and came to this conclusion:
