* "Quiet's Theme", which was previewed prior to "Sins Of The Father", is finally given a full version in the launch trailer and it captures the TearJerker nature of the game and, in a meta way, the ending of the saga. It's also, more accurately, a very good (and heartbreaking) summation of Quiet's character arc in the game.

* Of course, during all the killing the AI's are capable of, they seem to really have a fascination for TheCarpenters "Sing". No, more like Kojima seems to like the song, since it plays quite a few times, becomes a way to give the game's message focus, and plays during part of the end credits.

** [[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=uyYLwJmo0MY 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.

* [[https://youtu.be/NgFNgX85O5Y Approaching Home]], the music that plays during most returns to Mother Base. It perfectly captures the somber tone if the whole game as well as relief of being back in safe territory. "Welcome home, Boss!" indeed.

* [[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.
