** Many of the boss battle themes of [[VideoGame/FireEmblemAkaneia the DS Akaneia remake duology]] are very much rock-themed; the best example may be "Clash of Two Virtues", the theme for the fights against Michalis and Camus, themselves climatic foes responsible for much of the ill fortune befalling the world. Similarly, "Dark Emperor Hardin" and "Medeus, Shadow Dragon", the themes for... well, [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin Emperor Hardin and Medeus]], and "Tearing Shadows", the theme for Gharnef's assassins.

* The ''Franchise/{{Rocky}}'' series seems to be rather fond of this trope, and each film in the series arguably tops its predecessors. Though the best-known example from this series is undoubtedly Survivor's "Eye of the Tiger" from ''Film/RockyIII'' (which does qualify for this trope, despite not being reserved for the FinalBattle), however, the real standout examples are Bill Conti's "Going the Distance" from [[Film/{{Rocky}} the original]] and [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CaigiM23ogo Vince Dicola's "War"]] from ''Film/RockyIV'' (not to be confused with the Edwinn Starr song). Survivor's "Burning Heart" (also from ''Rocky IV'') deserves an honorable mention, but is just mood music in comparison (and "War", not "Burning Heart", is the song that plays during the FinalBattle anyways).

* The climax of the ''VideoGame/SystemShock'' crossover, [[http://archiveofourown.org/works/5880970/chapters/13553800 Goggles and the Tears]], starts with a Tear opening to MUSE's "Knights of Cydonia", which [[VideoGame/HalfLife2 Gordon Freeman]] hooks into the airship's loudspeakers, providing a backing track while the main characters fight [[AiIsACrapshoot SHODAN]], with [[BigDamnHeroes aid from the Vox Populi]].

* The soundtrack to ''VideoGame/RazingStorm'' counts. But in the FinalBattle with [[spoiler: [[BigBad Paulo Guerra]]]], the Music/FiveFingerDeathPunch song [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ia29oedf1rM "Ashes"]] plays.

* The final battle of ''VideoGame/ShadowWarrior2'', against [[spoiler:the demon goddess Ameonna]], is played out to "Warrior", a song that Stan Bush did for this very game.

* The first season of ''Anime/GhostInTheShellStandAloneComplex'' would often have the rock theme "Run Rabbit Junk" playing whenever the main team was storming a building or doing something else {{badass}} but not part of the serious ongoing plot. The song disappeared for the second season, but returned for the climax of [[TheMovie Solid State Society]] to signal that Section 9 was truly [[AwesomeMusic/{{Anime}} back in business.]]

*** Tidus in ''VideoGame/DissidiaFinalFantasy'', when he [[spoiler:gets up after apparently being one-shotted by Jecht, who's saying things like "Well, maybe next time you can give it a shot,"]] is cued by the re-start of "Otherworld." Talk about passing the {{Badass}} torch...

** Bonus points to Viral's heavy metal {{Leitmotif}}, "Nikopol", and "Libera Me From Hell", which takes ThemeMusicPowerUp to new levels of {{Badass}}.

Added DiffLines:

** ''VideoGame/{{Persona 5}}'' has techno rock tunes with plenty of electric guitar for most of the climatic BossBattle themes, with the FinalBoss theme in particular heavily featuring an electric guitar shredding through it's refrain.

* Far Cry 3 has a soundtrack that mostly rotates through generic (but still excellent) context-sensitive orchestral compositions. During the Kick The Hornet's Nest mission however, when you take a flamethrower to the criminal warlord's drug plantation while mowing down more enemies than you've yet fought in any single encounter, you suddenly get hit with [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BGpzGu9Yp6Y this]].

* At the end of ''Far Cry 4'', an East Asian rock / love ballad plays during the final drive up the mountain to confront Pagan Min.
* Likewise, ''Far Cry Primal'' has an electronic song (with English lyrics) play during the final boss fight against Batari, in a game which otherwise doesn't have a single word of spoken English.

For some reason, nothing says "Let's kick some ass!" quite like ThePowerOfRock (except maybe OminousLatinChanting, or [[TakeAThirdOption both]]). Maybe it's the heavy bass, or the wailing guitar, or the pounding drums, but rock music just seems to get the [[HotBlooded blood pumping]], so it's typically used to underscore the big action scenes.
