** Sokka and Yue also have one, though it may or may not count as a leitmotif since it is essencially an instrumental version of the song Iroh sang in the episode Yue was introduced.

* ''WesternAnimation/TeenageMutantNinjaTurtles2003'' gives the Shredder an ominous letimotif with evil {{Ethereal Choir}}s. It's even used when the Demon Shredder appears, and it fits him nicely.

* While ''WesternAnimation/{{Motorcity}}'' usually has a rock/metal soundtrack, whenever Tennie shows up, there's this more beautiful, pieceful sounding piece of music. The Duke and Kane might have a leitmotif as well.

** The [[BigBad Diamonds]] have one as well, which makes up the themes of Yellow and Blue Diamond. It also plays whenever one of their actions are shown, such as [[spoiler: the scene in 'Monster Reunion depicting the corruption of almost every single gem left on Earth.]]

* [[BigBad Tai Lung]] from ''WesternAnimation/KungFuPanda'' gets his own theme, natch. What is interesting is that while it plays the first time we see him (complete with Vachir's solemnly intoned "Behold Tai Lung"), and at several points throughout his [[SugarWiki/MomentOfAwesome incredible escape sequence]], with all the gravitas, power, and chilling effectiveness you'd expect, it also appears in a subdued, pensive, even sorrowful tone when he stands before his former master just before their climactic battle, and again in a darkly tragic and heartbreaking iteration (complete with choral rendering!) as Tai Lung is attacking his father with [[IncendiaryExponent his fists on fire]]. (As if we needed any more reminders of his FreudianExcuse and WellDoneSonGuy status--this is during his "All I ever did, I did to make you proud!" speech.) And a heartwarming, sweetly playful version is heard during the flashback to his StartOfDarkness, when we see him [[CuteKitten as an adorable cub]] with Shifu and learning kung fu.
** The first time we hear Tai Lung's theme is when we ''meet'' Shifu, playing on his flute at the temple. [[SugarWiki/HeartwarmingMoments Looks like Shifu's adopted son is still very much on his mind, even after 20 years in prison]].
** There is also a theme just for Oogway, as well as another that seems to be for kung fu. And one just for Po. If one listens to the music during Po's fight with Tai Lung, each of the two themes will flourish as its character shines. And as Po [[spoiler:starts to kick Tai Lung's butt legitimately,]] the "Hero" theme from the dream sequence at the beginning of the film comes back.

* On ''WesternAnimation/RickAndMorty'', [[spoiler: Evil Morty's]] appears to be "[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5SSdvNcAagI For The Damaged Coda]]" by Blonde Redhead, since it plays every time [[spoiler: their identity is revealed to the audience]].

* Aku of ''WesternAnimation/SamuraiJack'' is accompanied by low, malevolent, and warbling horns (mixed with a few [[ScareChord Scare Chords]] and rattling flutes for good measure) when he appears.

* ''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.

* In "A Boy's Best Friend is His Fish" from ''WesternAnimaton/{{Stanley}}'' the pet store owner, Mr. Finn, speaks with an [[{{Oireland}} Irish accent]] and every time he talks an Irish-sounding tune plays in the background.

* 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.
