Legend of the Guardians: The Owls of Ga'Hoole has you control an owl, flying across the land to complete various missions. It is based on the movie of the same name, itself based on the Legend of the Guardians book series.

Unused Music


An interpretation of part of the song "Barbarian Horde" by Hans Zimmer, that loops. The batchief is a boss of the game, but uses different music.

More exactly, it is the exact same audio as the one here. It is however cut from 4m36 to 6m36s, and has what seems to be a normalization effect.

File Name

The credits theme is named "ui_tradermagsstore". In the books, Trader Mags is a trader, but there is no such character in the game or movie.

BT_P01_KLU="So you're a Guardian of Ga'Hoole? (laughs)  Let's have it then, Guardian!  Let's see what you've got."
BT_P02_KLU="You're truly a disappointment, Guardian!"
BT_P03_KLU="Do something that at least challenges me!"
BT_P04_KLU="Looks like they let you out of the tree a bit too early, Guardian!"

“EZY” could stand for Ezylryb, while “KLU” could comes from Kludd, an antagonist present in the movie and the book serie, but not the game.
