    The best battle themes ever!!!

    Post by RED ODA on Mon Oct 07, 2013 3:21 pm

    Along the years I've been playing some of the most amazing RPG ever made and
    what is a good RPG without a great soundtrack and great battle themes.

    Here's some of my favorite battle themes ever and my suggestion of songs,
    they're not in order, I just love them all:

    Magna Carta 2 : Hero (bad*** song for a bad*** game!)
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=okTIJIfYQDE

    Rogue Galaxy : Braveheart (Not Digimon's, but I like that one too!)
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=i8m6vmAQm6Q

    Xenosaga Godsibb (It has to be here! Vocal is even more enjoyable)
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VjPWTEtuv74

    Grandia III: Attack with conviction (This song truly express conviction!)
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FOtHK7axaOk

    Grandia II : Fight Ver 4 (all battle themes area amazing, but this one is epic)
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=p29MCpipZTI

    Valkyrie Profile: Fighting Shadowy Gods (godlike!!!)
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AXMBrgDjIXo

    Valkyrie Profile 2: Unrestrained Struggle (All hail Sakuraba!!!)
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KVQcUCBzTLc

    These are only a few, I'll be posting more as I find them. Now
    What are yours favorites? Make sure you post the link, so I can
    chekc it out. Thanks!

    Unsurprisingly, my favorite recurring boss battle theme is FF7's.

    As for last bosses, Awakening from Xenogears is badass as hell.  Definite precursor to Godsibb.

    The Battle with Neo Ex-Death from FF5
    https://youtu.be/9bjcqsxxzeU

    And of course, Dancing Mad from FF6.

    I'm just going to casually say every single boss theme in Episode III of Xenosaga. I mean. Come on. Yuki Kajiura is the Goddess of Music, it's hard to top those!!! Plus, Godsibb was literally the reason my sister purchased the games in the first place...!

    But Yasunori Mitsuda comes close with the final boss theme in Episode I! And "The One Who Bares Fangs at God" from Xenogears is hella cool too...

    Meta-Ridley from Metroid Prime is also a favourite of mine uwu (or really any arrangement of the Ridley theme)

    Golden Sun's "Doom Dragon"is another good one!
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HXAddCsJtXg

    Can I count SSBB's "Final Destination" as one? Because goodness, I love it...

    AND ON A CHEESY NOTE

    For what it's worth, Final Fantasy Mystic Quest has some rockin' battle music.  :guitarist:



    Also this one. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_CT9iuxPfCw

    Since I should avoid what's already been saaaid...
    Guilty Gear X2: The Midnight Carnival has always been one of my favourite songs to end Arcade mode to. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LKJ9AVrpM9s

    Shinobi (PS2) "Call"

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rwVbIk1TdLw I was young and impressionable when I first played this game and it blew my mind.

    Devil May Cry 3: Vergil's Battle Theme 2
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hiNTwmxWdIY

    Tales of the Abyss: The Meaning of Birth
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-SHM-7qMiDs You guys don't know how crazy I am about Karma and Bump of Chicken in general

    Also anything and everything from Chrono Trigger.

    One of the greatest video game soundtracks of all time belongs to Onimusha: Warlords. And it has a final boss theme worthy of its greatness.
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=07-EkBydLVI

    SNK has no equal or rival in terms of fighting game music.
    Zankuro's Theme from Samurai Shodown IV
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3LC0KPwHAmI

    Every single goddam Geese Howard theme too. But I'll pick the Art of Fighting 2 version.
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fuuIBw54G3Q

    Goenitz, the baddest preacher ever.
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-NIzkEdS7Lg

    Every Xeno fan should play Baten Kaitos.
    First we have Chaotic Dance.
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_B64f48ewdo

    Then we have Violent Storm.
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3lB0b0fHbAY

    Twin Snakes was in all ways inferior to MGS1 and that includes music. But Gray Fox's theme is a rare gem and almost redeems the game.

    Eh, my all-time favourites are all already taken, what to do, what to do?

    Hmm, Total War has some very nice battle music, like these tracks, for example:

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JJ2VisWsItc&list=PL05678CBFDDEDE84D
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eoHo23qW_aA&list=PL05678CBFDDEDE84D
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=c3QVPUHwRCg&list=PLD7F05191D3F258AA

    EDIT:

    Found this rad video:



    The credits section leads me to believe that the two tracks used in the making of this do not appear in the game proper - at least these particular iterations - but what the hell, this is an awesome video.

    Since I'm apparently on a Final Fantasy Legend soundtrack kick at this exact moment, the battle theme from FFL3 is ... maybe not the best or most exciting ever, but probably my favorite from the series?
