* In ''WesternAnimation/JusticeLeague'' and ''Justice League Unlimited'', Batman, Superman, Wonder Woman, the Flash, Green Lantern and Green Arrow all have their own musical motifs (Batman and Superman retain their melody motifs from their respective solo shows). Green Arrow even hums his own theme while swinging forth into battle at one point (and it was [[CrowningMomentOfAwesome AWESOME]] and [[CrowningMomentOfFunny hilarious]] at the same time). [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y6x9YTh173o Here is a compilation]].

* ''WesternAnimation/AmericanDad'' has Stan's high school bully [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CSzSWfu-4xY Stelio Kontos]], who not only has a distinctive theme song played over every scene he appears in, he also carries a stereo around with him so that he can play his own theme song in place of actually speaking.

** Stalling was addicted to the used of Leitmotif, to the point that [[Creator/WarnerBros Warners]] animators joked, "Now, don't draw anything with a red pencil, or Stalling will give us '[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PUE3Mr2_VYI The Lady in Red]]'!"

Added DiffLines:

** 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.]]
** Whenever the Gem Mutants or the Cluster appear, the music becomes creepy and distorted, with several aharmonious themes playing at once.

** In ''WesternAnimation/SupermanTheAnimatedSeries'', the first line of the theme music serves as Superman's Leitmotif. Used to creepy effect in "Identity Crisis" with TheReveal of SelfDemonstrating/{{Bizarro}}, whose leitmotif has the first three notes in reverse order, and adds instruments to "darken" it.
