* Also from ''Reach'' is [[spoiler: [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eTRtAB7spno The Pillar of Autumn]]]].
** It's interesting to note the Reach overture loses instruments as your teammates die, and by "Pillar of Autumn" it has been condescend down to just a cello section. All your friends are dead, and you're on your own, but you still have a job to do.

* Though it doesn't have an actual name, the "Arbiter's Theme," which first plays when his armor is shown in an early cutscene and is used to signify the Elites doing heroic things throughout the rest of the game. It also plays during ''Halo 3's'' level "Floodgate" under the name "Follow Our Brothers", when the Arbiter's Special Forces team from the previous game returns to lend a helping hand.

* "Peril" is a nice, calm piece which plays while the Master Chief is exploring Delta Halo.

* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=34cGnonnTiA "Greatest Journey"]], ''the'' most epic ''complete'' rendition of the ''Halo'' theme, serves as the background music for the final [[IncrediblyLamePun run]] of ''Halo 3''. (It gets bonus points for throwing in "Under Cover of Night", a criminally underused piece from the first game, and some creepy Flood-type music.)

* Also, the Infinity's/[=UNSC=]'s {{Leitmotif}} in ''Halo 4'', "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TmAPACP5nPM To Galaxy]]". A slow build-up leading to a sweeping, heroic, but serious-sounding piece. The build-up section is used as background music for the multiplayer menu, but other segments are used in Spartan Ops and of course, in the [=UNSC=]'s "We are the giants now" BadassBoast intro.

** The [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lXjUGO0-0Gg Remix version by KOAN Sound]], while different in style and tempo (and only half the length), is equally beautiful.

** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oubGPn3pZ5s Tribute]] from ''Halo 3''. A fitting end to the original trilogy, with easily one of the most beautiful, tear-jerking melodies in the whole series. It perfectly encapsulates the loss and emotion felt throughout the trilogy, and brings it to a somber, yet hopeful close.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g40t7coTQ8g "Follow Our Brothers"]], from ''Halo 3''. A beautiful, uplifiting reprise of "Brothers in Arms" from ''Halo: Combat Evolved'', that plays over an inspiring scene of the UNSC and Covenant Separatists gearing up to go through the Portal, united against a common foe.

** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bW8nG7n_M3s "This Is The Hour".]] Really, there ''is'' no better music to end the world on.
*** [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vQJGlhWVaic://https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vQJGlhWVaic "Finish The Fight".]] Instead of the previous song's ending, imagine instead the UNSC fleet dishing out one last MAC volley, and Truth's ship falling to the ground with a huge, glorious explosion. Truly awesome heroic music.

** The reprise of "Under Cover of Night" (from ''Halo: CE'') going into the final level of ''Halo 3'' is a standout moment from that game. To know that the two biggest badasses of the humans and Elites were about to go to their potential deaths...breathtaking. "We'll head for the Portal...and then we'll all go home."

** Menagerie gets special mention for reappearing in ''Halo: Reach'', playing as Noble Six helps escort a certain Gunnery Sergeant while the Covenant glass New Alexandria in the background.

** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bBeyFxCsoOw Traffic Jam.]] Has a driving rhythm, makes an orchestra sound as awesome as an electric guitar's power chords, and has an actual electric guitar soloing ''on top of that.'' Played during Mickey's mission where you roll through the enclosed city streets of New Mombasa in a Scorpion tank.
