It is pretty good as far as battle themes go. As you mentioned, it does need to be more intense, but this is still a good battle theme. It would fit for a video game if it's a less harmless, presumably nice, monster. It does work very well as a battle theme, and I could see it in a game.
Thank you for the feedback! I appreciate it!
