* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_UGKCvIrF_o Kraid's Lair]] is surprisingly dark and ambient for an 8-bit chiptune. Its [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2WoWd12vUEs remix]] in ''Zero Mission'' is equally awesome.

* The ''Zero Mission'' of [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-oY6TvKdlWQ Norfair]] makes great use of deep choirs and high strings to make the volcanic caverns seem equally beautiful and dangerous. It even has some hints of the ''Super Metroid'' Norfair tracks.

* [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z_V3YmbOxFE The theme for the Chozo laboratory]] (which was also used in the E3 2017 trailer for ''Samus Returns'') is perhaps Creator/KenjiYamamoto's best work yet, being an exciting track that blends together elements of other songs from the ''Metroid'' series, including Samus's theme.

* [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oEp9flBoQhE The music that plays in Crateria]], just after landing. The haunting, atmospheric NothingIsScarier approach to Zebes planetfall made the inevitable Space Pirate appearances frightening despite being expected.

[[folder:Nintendo Land (Metroid Blast)]]
* [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KZAX4pEdhbQ The Brinstar theme]] receives a BossRemix during battles with Kraid, making the player feel powerful and confident as they go up against the towering Space Pirate.
* Who would have guessed that a mere party game would have one of the best official renditions of [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mAzXy2sswgM Ridley's theme]]? It's an intense and sinister arrangement of the Meta-Ridley theme, combining orchestral and electronic instruments to find that perfect sound for the ''Metroid'' series.

* The credits theme from ''Super Metroid'' received [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EPkImiUzdBk an orchestral remix]] in ''Brawl'', which bestowed upon it the title of "Theme of Samus Aran, Space Warrior." While this title originally belonged to the Crateria theme, the ''Brawl'' rendition proved to be popular enough that this theme officially became Samus Aran's {{leitmotif}} with the release of the ''Samus Archives Sound Selection'' CD in 2017.

* [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tcNLHfqbySU Sector 2 (TRO)]] captures the tension of being trapped in a dark and dangerous jungle with its heavy drums and deep choir.
* Both [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CI_QEfImkl8 Sector 4]] [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AcmhBpJghAI (AQA)]] renditions are a wonderful blend of pure atmosphere and catchy melodies.
* [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iSV_hyw32LM Sector 5 (ARC)]] and [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6Wlaw_2Ny9w Sector 6 (NOC)]] are both expanded upon and thoroughly improved. Sector 5 goes from a mere 30-second-long loop to a fully developed song, while Sector 6 borrows a bit of melody from ''Metroid Prime'' to give it a more somber tone.

* [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RJrrHVnyAtw Diggernaut's theme]] takes the familiar rhythm from the Arachnus-X and Berserker Lord boss themes and then just keeps cranking up the intensity, making for an absolutely relentless boss battle theme.
* Nothing quite like stepping into a red-glowing door for the first time, only to be met with the blaring horns of [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GzMg8SXCGic this game's remix]] of the Lower Norfair and Magmoor Caverns theme. It's as though Kenji Yamamoto wondered, "How can I take my old composition and make it even more aggressive and powerful?"
* Few ''Metroid'' boss themes convey sheer primal terror quite as effectively as the remake's [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NITjYFk9NMY Omega Metroid]] battle theme.
* The [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IHxWt6X0RBQ staff credits]] music from ''Return of Samus'' is easily the most upbeat and celebratory piece in a soundtrack that otherwise largely consists of dark ambience. Then ''Samus Returns'' came along and [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z61Y2N58q6g made it even better]], turning it into a medley of classic ''Metroid'' tunes that makes it feel like the series has finally received its well-deserved recognition in 2017.

* [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=K-_Wk9y_aBU Ancient Power]] and [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3MmYsnDcXtE Flooded Complex]] are new original compositions for [=AM2R=]'s Distribution Center, but they are so catchy and atmospheric and fit so seamlessly into the soundtrack that you would be forgiven for mistaking them for remixes of other ''Metroid'' tunes.


Added DiffLines:

* [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6NtZeqZT4xY Metroid Legacy]] is a tribute to the entire series, in the form of a fantastic remix of the ''Super Metroid'' theme.
* [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cDav-_MbjF8 Altar of Aether]] and [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Acs_no8Msnk Guardians of Old]] take the Luminoth temple themes from ''Echoes'' and reimagine them with more authentic desert instrumentation. It sounds like the soundtrack to a movie adaptation of ''Echoes''.

They're all basically the theme of [[spoiler:Ridley]], with each phase having a progressively more intense variation of it. And of course it's going to be awesome anyway - ''it's [[spoiler:Ridley]].''
* The [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ycv1SnIInHw Queen Metroid]] boss theme, which is a ''much'' more terrifying song than [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=O-dF8PSinew the original's theme]] for the Queen, even incorporating a DarkReprise of said original theme around a minute in. It also carries quite a bit of inspiration from [[VideoGame/SuperMetroid Mother Brain's]] theme, having a similar beat and even having identical instruments.
