* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=f00OQVn-Hbo "Way To Fall"]], the ending theme of ''[=MGS3=]'' by Starsailor. Easily up there with several of the ''SilentHill'' themes, if not the most fitting ending theme ever for a game. On a related note: Kojima originally wanted two songs by DavidBowie, "Space Oddity" and "Ashes to Ashes", to play during the ending.

* [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9jK-NcRmVcw The Final Countdown]] by Europe is a very appropriate theme for anyone wishing to invoke IncomingHam with their helicopter entrance. It's a popular choice among players.

** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ULQgMntenO8 "The Stains of Time",]] Monsoon's theme, using a rainstorm as a metaphor describing how the ceaseless fighting and nonexistence of free will has washed away any reasons for fighting or dreams of something greater, leaving only pure, unfettered violence.

** Also, the [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cLid2005n38 original version]] of "Encounter" stands up surprisingly well, and even got [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5MEXkT2e2EE remix]] made for ''SuperSmashBros. Brawl''.

* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rNVCD1dsnJI MGS3 Theme]]. The last part of it plays a remixed version of the second game's ending. And that part at 5:10...it just fits the game perfectly. It's the sound of a soldier returning home, sadly questioning what his mission was about, but still carrying a kernel of hope for the future.

But still, it is completely normal if the music made you salute your television when you heard it.

* The main theme, "[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dZAHk0g-Nfk Sins of the Father]]" by Donna Burke. It is all about Big Boss' fall from grace, desire for revenge for what everyone from the world's governments to his former friends to his own mistakes have done to him, and ultimately, his willingness to do anything to strike back and control the world that has hurt him. It is quite the VillainSong, showing how far Big Boss has fallen from the well-meaning but misguided and misinformed person he was in ''Metal Gear Solid 3'', decades ago in his life. And the remix used in TGS 2014, despite how little we hear of it, is epic.
* "[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RrkzIN2eP0U Nuclear]]" by Mike Oldfield from the E3 2014 trailer captures Big Boss' FaceHeelTurn perfectly.

** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aWnS8iKYnbQ "A Stranger I Remain",]] Mistral's theme, describing how she [[StrangerInAFamiliarLand only feels at home on the battlefield]] fighting for a cause she believes in - the first time in her life that she's ever found one. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wdEOw7NvnSM The original version]], not used in the game, contains an entire verse and alternate chorus not present in the final mix. These further expand on Mistral's character, detailing how her carnage-filled past has left her capable of interacting with others only in destructive ways, and how any aspirations to redeem her are the stuff of naive fantasy.

** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rQzet0GOKNo "The Only Thing I Know For Real",]] Jetstream Sam's theme, describing how the only thing he truly knows is the feeling of killing others now that so much time has passed since he could tell right from wrong, and how he desires a WorthyOpponent who can provide him with a true challenge.

** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZcpGIVbPYrI "It Has To Be This Way",]] Armstrong's second theme, which now describes how he finds Raiden to be a WorthyOpponent, how they are both similar in their implementation of MightMakesRight, and how whichever one of them emerges victorious will set the world on a new course in doing so. Plus it gets points for being a remix of ''Peace Walker'''s theme.

* There're also a few gems in the non-vocal portion of the soundtrack, such as [[http://youtu.be/uFfgK4nfgiI "Unstoppable",]] which plays during a [[HopelessBossFight hopeless first phase]] of a final boss fight and sounds like a hyped-up remix of the Terminator theme.
