* ''WesternAnimation/ThunderCats'' uses leitmotifs extensively. Each major heroic character has one (Panthro sharing his with the Thundertank), as well as having leitmotifs for danger, warnings, certain locations, and battle. [[BigBad Mumm-Ra]] also has his own creepy tune.

* Some, if not all, of the main characters from ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'' have their own. Applejack's is a bluegrass country theme, Rarity's is a classical-sounding piece featuring a harpsichord, Rainbow Dash's is a rock riff, Fluttershy is often accompanied by rather airy-sounded music courtesy of the woodwinds, and Pinkie Pie's craziness is usually backed by either a frenetic xylophone or a staccato synthesizer. Discord has a distinct tune that usually plays whenever he warps reality.
