On that note, the song itself is pure EpicRocking, perfect for the home turf of Claudio, and even features parts reminiscent of "No Way Back". [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MeBdH1ymJX8 Duomo di Sirio 2nd]] replaces the EpicRocking with a full-on orchestra.

This game soundtrack is more reminiscent of that of the first ''Tag'' game, particularly the vocoder sounds and the industrial[=/=]electronic influences, mixed with a lot of {{dubstep}}. It's probably not that much of a stretch to assume that this would have been the soundtrack of ''[=TTT2=]'' if not for the decision to remix the classic BGM's instead for that game.

]] The stage it plays on is a beautiful grass clearing, and the music adds to its relaxing effect.
*
King's theme, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=P3EOkX-ckTo Ring A Bell.]]]] The music starts on a grand note as though introducing the atmosphere of a church, before transitioning into fast-paced techno as the fight continues.

Yoshimitsu's theme, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EV77owpNVcg Head Shaker.]]]] The soundtrack captures the atmosphere of fighting in the middle of a thick forest; haunting and beautiful all at the same time.

*
[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gRiAEzoGG4c Devil Kazuya's and Angel's theme, "Be In The Mirror".]]]] The song features a more downtempo rendition of the main melody of "Emotionless Passion" as you confront the TrueFinalBoss, the Devil residing in Kazuya (or Angel if you're playing as Devil).

%%* * [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AV8X9L0qIGk Eddy Gordo's theme.]]]] A nice, funky guitar melody set to a groovy electronic beat; perfect for the series' first DanceBattler.



This soundtrack mixes the GenreBusting soundtrack of ''Tekken 4'' with the heavy metal and fast-paced music of ''Tekken 5''.

* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_upcksAU4FU Two against the darkness]], the console opening movie theme. Even out of context, it's a very rousing track. Composed by Rio Hamamoto and Ryuichi Takada. The impressive thing about this track is how perfectly each musical phrase matches up with almost every scene in the opening movie itself. To break it down a bit: the military-sounding intro accompanies Jin briefing his Mishima Zaibatsu army (including Nina), which ends on a dissonant note as the scene shifts to Miguel carrying his dead sister and screaming in fury. Then the music quiets down to violins as Zafina makes her way to Azazel's temple, and a mournful horn section accompanies Leo laying flowers on her mother's grave. Suddenly the music shifts to heavy metal as Bob fights off bank robbers, and Paul and Bryan are dueling. The imperial-sounding horns then alternate with the metal riffs as we see Kazuya fighting alongside his G Corporation men. Finally, the rousing climax of the soundtrack accompanies Zafina opening the temple and her surprise to see Azazel awakening and starting to break free from his restraints.

5''. An ongoing theme among the songs seems to be a push-and-pull between clean, orchestral music, gritty, rough rock riffs and synthesized electronic sounds.

The violins are emphasized as Asuka and Lili face each other, transitioning into hard metal riffs as Paul and Bryan are dueling. The imperial-sounding horns then alternate with the metal riffs as we see Kazuya fighting alongside his G Corporation men. Finally, the rousing climax of the soundtrack accompanies Zafina opening the temple and the shock on her surprise to see face as Azazel awakening awakens and starting starts to break free from his restraints.

Schoolyard. The song mixes slap-bass with dubstep for a good pulse-pounding soundtrack.
*
[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=57DfDdddcPU Everlasting Heaven]], for Eternal Paradise. Another good mix of dubstep, this time alternating with some acoustic guitar strumming.

%%* * [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BdFCuRS_SRI Francoise's Bassline]], for Riverside Promenade. The song is clearly electronic, but brings more focus to the more softer sounds of guitar plucking and strumming.

%%* * [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oYZPGoMJjFI Self destruct]], for Historic Town Square. The song builds up in intensity as the hard strumming of distorted electric guitars gets progressively louder.



%%* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5AyhYyLBHMk Night Rises]], the Event theme.

to:

%%* * [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5AyhYyLBHMk Night Rises]], the Event theme. It's a simple but uplifting melody, which is also a ''very'' subtle CallBack to the [=TTT2=] credits theme, "Night Falls", which also features the same musical phrase in a different key.



* [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XnOjeW-4PQQ Ruin 65 1st]], and [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zqyXJkeQizE Ruin 65 2nd]], the themes for the Forgotten Realm stage, composed by Taku Inoue. The first song is mostly a drum-n-bass track interspersed with some Eastern-style percussions and horns, which fits well with the setting. The final round version goes all-out with the heavy electronic distortion while maintaining the same beat, emphasizing the urgency of the match coming to its conclusion.



%%* [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gPEbIk51lDI Volcano 1st]], the theme of the Devil's Pit stage, and [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aRvZyFR-0zM Volcano 2nd]], the final round version of the Devil's Pit theme.

%%* * [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gPEbIk51lDI Volcano 1st]], the theme of the Devil's Pit stage, and [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aRvZyFR-0zM Volcano 2nd]], the final round version of the Devil's Pit theme. The initial track is a fast-paced piano and electronic track that builds up but only up to a point; while the final-round version amps up the tension with some haunting choirs as well as violins and electronic guitar riffs that keep up the pace.



* [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bfEG9J9A8fU "Hideaway 2nd"]], which was the original main theme for Duomo di Sirio (and originally before that the music used in Nina Williams's ''Fated Retribution'' trailer; it was removed from Duomo di Sirio starting with the pre-release builds that featured Eddy Gordo, Kuma, and Panda). While Duomo di Sirio would be more apt for a classically European-styled theme (and the final game's theme for the stage is more in line with this), this unique-sounding techno theme gives the stage an interesting atmosphere that contrasts the old-world stylings with a more modern touch.

It was eventually re-used in the console's Story mode during a battle with Nina.
* [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_lvdmh0DcmA Moonsiders 1st]] and [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pbdcseaX37c Moonsiders 2nd]], the themes for the console-only stage Infinite Azure. The first song goes very well with the relaxing setting, with light piano melodies set to a bouncy electronic beat. The final round version in turn speeds up the song and includes a lot of drum-n-bass distortions.
* [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Pv3nifufIBU Precipice of Fate 1st]] and [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VbKH0whLNrw Precipice of Fate 2nd]], the themes for the stage named, well, Precipice of Fate. The first song has a slow buildup but heightens the tension right away once the song gets moving, and the final round version amps it up even further.
* [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_U0Qn7Qb2EI Solitude]], the console version's Menu music. Probably the best Menu music of the entire series; easing you into the game with a light, beautiful repeating piano melody while electronic beats and drums hold up the rhythm of the song.
* [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TL1Y0y_zjT8 Midnight Closet]], the game's Customization theme. Similar to the spirit of "Your Sunset" from the previous game, this is also a very relaxing song, this time featuring an electronic beat accompanied by funky guitars and synth melodies as the bass goes in and out.

And they are used to especially great effect for the first two phases of the final boss fight in Story Mode.
