** "I Burn" is this for Yang, basically being a long BadassBoast in song form. So far, it's been remixed three times in Volume 3: a smooth jazz version when she took out Team FNKI, a badass techno version in her fight against Mercury, and [[spoiler:a sad piano version as she was being arrested on television for [[DeliberateInjuryGambit "breaking" Mercury's leg]].]]

* In ''WebVideo/IfTheEmperorHadATextToSpeechDevice'', "Awake" from ''Anime/JoJosBizarreAdventure'' plays whenever the Fabulous Custodians are on screen. The Ultramarines also have their music, heavy with chanting and classical tones.

* Episodes of SaladFingers use the odd little tune "Beware the Friendly Stranger" by BoardsOfCanada at least once per episode. In one episode, it is played backwards, [[MindScrew for no other reason besides the fact that they could]].

* General example. Virtually every DatingSim game has leitmotifs for each character. * All of ''{{Clannad}}'''s main female characters had their own themes. The ending song of the anime, ''Dango Daikazoku'', even goes on to have the same tune as Nagisa's eponymous theme music. ** Worth noting that virtually all of the main female characters in KeyVisualArts' visual novels feature their own themes, and there's even one for a male character. (Natsume Kyousuke from VisualNovel/LittleBusters) ** Non-animate things have leitmotifs, too. For an example, a song called ''Snowfield'' plays when it's snowing. ** On the same topic, a few themes are used for any event filling a certain theme, such as ''Shining in the sky'' and ''The Place Where Wishes Come True'' being used for many of the {{Crowning moment of awesome}} instances, ''A couple of idiots'' and ''Meaningful ways to pass the time'' for many of the comedic plot development scenes, ''Sping Wind'' and ''To the same heights'' for plot development in general and ''Distant Years'' along with ''Town, Flow of Time, People'' for flashbacks * ''UminekoNoNakuKoroNi'' has a few of these, most of which are [[CrowningMusicOfAwesome brain-meltingly awesome]]. Most notably, Battler has [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tICKoZ18zHk&fmt=18 "Dread of the Grave"]], Beato has [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pyzV_zgmT50&fmt=18 "Organ Opusculum in C Minor"]], Lambdadelta has [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Sq5YSqzX6Jk&fmt=18 "Miragecoordinator"]], and Eva-Beatrice has the SoundtrackDissonance-tastic [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0J5LF2Udf20&fmt=18 "Happiness of Marionette"]]. ** As said in the anime section, ''HigurashiNoNakuKoroNi'' has a few too. ** According to fans, Kinzo's theme is [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MMM_BPTYglM la divina tragedia]]. [[MemeticMutation OH]] [[LargeHam DESIRE!!!]] * ''FateStayNight'' has several, including ''Die Lorelei'' for Ilya (which is also a pre-existing song), [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jhyWEIgW-bg&feature=related ''The Golden King'']] for Gilgamesh, and ''[[DarkReprise All Evils]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xe821OoYPUY of the World]]'' for [[spoiler:the Shadow]]. ** You also have [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cUs8FEsDUZ4 ''Emiya'']] for Shirou and [[spoiler: Archer]], and for Saber you have ''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Zn_QT5YvEbE Kodoku na Junrei]]'' for the [[CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming Heartwarming]] and TearJerker scenes, and ''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rCL_EqNKpVA The Sword Of Promised Victory]]'' whenever she decides to unveil her Noble Phantasm and do something {{Badass}}, and for villains, you have Kotomine's ''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=n226M5ZzkOE Church On The Hill]]''. And if you want, you can look into FateZero for ''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0e6Rog9FK9w The Berserker]]'' and ''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZiXr1AgiTFU The Lancer]]''. * The ''TokimekiMemorial'' series makes extensive use of this trope : each character in the series has its own iconic tune, which plays each time they show up, and even starts to play a fraction of seconds ''before'' the character appears on screen (so the first cue of who shows up is actually musical). [[PlayingWithATrope Played with]] in ''Tokimeki Memorial 2'' with [[BrokenBird Kaori]] [[DefrostingIceQueen Yae]], who has a more cheerful variation of her Leitmoif, which plays when she [[spoiler: finally overcomes her painful past and turns back to her former GenkiGirl self, [[ThePowerOfLove and fully falls]] [[NearVictoryFanfare in love with the protagonist]] [[GoodEnding who patiently and affectionately helped her along the way]]]]. ** ''MitsumeteKnight'', ''Tokimeki Memorial'' 's SpiritualSuccessor, made the same use of this trope. And ''also'' [[PlayingWithATrope played with the trope]] with [[spoiler: [[EmotionlessGirl Raizze]] [[DefrostingIceQueen Haimer]]]], who has ''two'' variations of her Leitmotif, [[spoiler: the somber "Cold Lips"]] : the first, [[spoiler: "Salishuan the Spy", an epic, battle-engaging tune]] which plays when [[spoiler: Raizze reveals to you her identity as Salishuan the Spy of the Eight Generals of Valpha-Valaharian, and challenges you to a duel in order to avenge her father, [[FinalBoss the leader of the Eight General Wolfgario the Ravager]], slayed by you in a duel a week earlier]] ; the second, which follows ''just after'' the first variation [[RelationshipValues if she's deeply in love with you]], named [[spoiler: "Sorrowful Blade"]], is a [[spoiler: heartwrenching tune playing as [[TearJerker Raizze is conflicted between]] her love for her father and thus her duty to avenge him, and the love she feels for you]]. And you'll ''need'' to hear this second variation [[AnyoneCanDie if you don't]] [[LostForever want her to]] [[TearJerker meet a sad fate]]. * Characters in the GirlsLove VN ''AkaiIto'' and ''AoiShiro'' have {{Leitmotif}}, but [[AkaiIto Yumei]]'s Itsuka no Hikari was actually promoted to a vocal single later (along with [[BigBad Nushi]]'s sinister Wheel of Fortune).
