Favorite Battle Theme?

Recommended Posts

Battle themes in video games are very memorable tunes usually, and are supposed to make you feel 'excited' to battle. For me, my favorite is probably from Lunar: Eternal Blue, for the Sega CD, "Brave Warriors," right now. It's very catchy, and I never get tired listening to it! Here it is:

 

 

 

I also enjoy others, such as Final Fantasy IV's "Battle with the Four Fiends." Here is that:

 

 

And Cave Story's "Oppression." Here is that as well:

 

 


 

 

So, what's your favorite battle theme, from any genre of games?

Nice thread idea!

 

There's two that really stand out for me. Both from "Atelier Ayesha" as i feel that game's music was fantasic all round.

 

"Sylpheed"

 

 

"Undine"

 

Naturally there's a "Salamander" and "Gnome" as well as special Boss music. The music shuffles depending on your location.

 

I'm also pretty excited to see what everyone else's favourites are.

This has to be one of my favorite themes by far.

But at the same time, I'm a sucker from various themes from Pokemon, Champion Cynthia from Platinum and Black, Team Flare Boss in Y and Mirror B. in Gale of Darkness especially stand out.

@Dwaine: Lol, it's been a while since I heard that remix. It's pretty nice.

 

My favorite in-game battle theme: Melody of the Blade from DQX. Though if we include remixes, that DQV rap remix takes the cake.

(I'm pretty sure THPS48 uploaded that, though I have no clue what his youtube username is because it's in japanese. If that really is you, THPS48, I owe you a big THANK YOU!!! It's in my youtube playlist of awesome music.)

 

 

(I'm not only including DQ games in my thought process, it's just that I find Koichi sugiyama's music to be the best balance between the most epic and the least repetitive RPG music.)

Indeed.

 

Both Star Ocean 4 and 3 had some very memorable tracks. They really added to the whole space atmosphere significantly.

Before you ask, yes. This IS battle music. I kid you not. It plays while you beat up guys hiding behind trees and rocks, using your nose and armpit hair. While dancing. It fits perfectly.

There is a giant lack of Shin Megami Tensei here, I must fix this.

 

"Last Boss" fight

The Almighty (Live Version because that piano intro is awesome)

 

I love all the vocal music from the persona games, I cant even pick between them..

Time To Make History (P4G)

 

I saw some Lunar above here, so I'll raise your Lunar a Grandia.

Grandia 2 Battle Theme

 

Played Final Fantasy 14 A Realm Reborn, only reason I'm not playing it now is i'm unsure if I'm going to be playing DQX.

Final Fantasy XIV A Realm Reborn: Fallen Angel (Garuda theme)

 

 

I could go on all day with this.

Edit: I have to include some Ys music

The art and music forum is for pieces created by us.

 

While I have no problem with this thread being here, I think more people would actually see it in the Miscellaneous forum.

As for some good battle music, I always liked the themes from Marvel: Ultimate Alliance.

 

Check this one, from the Asgard level.

 

 

Although it cannot be heard in this piece, I love how the composers included the main leitmotif of the game's theme in a few of the stage's tracks. You can hear it here from 0:11 to 0:32:
