Games What's The Greatest/Your Favorite Boss Theme Ever?

  1. When it comes time for a showdown with the boss(es) of a video game and the boss music kicks in, what's the greatest theme(s) that you've ever heard? This one is probably my personal favorite:

    The whole soundtrack to Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 4: Turtles In Time for the SNES is golden and probably one of the all-time classic video game soundtracks in history, but this boss theme is something else. The music here really gets you pumped for the fight that's about to occur with the boss and has that "shit just got real" feeling to it. (The whole theme doesn't actually take fifteen minutes to play, for the record. The person who uploaded the video just looped it over and over again starting at 00:30.)

    The Arcade version of it is pretty sweet, too:

  2. One Winged Angel.. The boss battle music for the final encounter with Sephiroth in FF7.

    I remember the first time I fought Sephiroth and this music started playing, I felt like I was in a real fight, the adrenaline started flowing, heart started beating fast.. All because of this music. Perfect battle theme.

    • Agree Agree x 1

  3. Pretty badass, and feels like this was actually much better than the battle itself.

    And every MGR boss battle theme, but I'll just stick to the Metal Gear Ray theme.

  4. You can't make me choose one :finger:
  5. The theme when you battle The Dahaka from PoP: Warrior Within immediately comes to mind.

    It's not really a boss battle, but I also remember when I first encountered a group of elites in the first Halo game. I think it was a cut scene but the music was just great. Halo has always been great when it comes to music.

    There's quite a few from the MGS series as well but I don't think I can pick out my favorites.
