This trope applies to rock of any kind being played when the heroes do their thing. Sometimes it's a ThemeMusicPowerUp. May overlap with ThePowerOfRock, where rocking out ''is'' the heroes doing their thing. Occasionally accompanied by OminousLatinChanting, which means someone's ''really'' about to get wrecked. For ''even more'' epicness, add some OrchestralBombing. Has every reason to be SugarWiki/AwesomeMusic, so it had better be up to it. Compare BigDamnHeroes.

BigDamnHeroes. Compare and contrast RottenRockAndRoll, where it's the ''villains'' that get this honor.

* The music in ''Tak and the Great Juju Challenge'' is mostly very calm and peaceful ambient music. But during boss battles, the music employs heavy use of electric guitars. Same goes for the Proving Grounds soundtrack. The music played during the [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ic_j56Ugt-E final match]] in the Proving Grounds takes it UpToEleven with a hard rock remix of the BGM from Ghastfall.

** The most blatant example would have to be "The Agenda, Part 2". When Ravage (yes, the same Ravage from the G1 cartoon) attacks the Maximals he transforms himself into his alt-mode (an audio cassette), inserts himself into his own ship's console, and suddenly a ''tremendous'' guitar riff [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vbj63DzK6vc cuts through the soundtrack]]. One can only conclude that ''Ravage's alt-mode'' is recorded with this music.

[[WhatMightHaveBeen The production crew had apparently wanted to put the original G1 cartoon's theme in there as Ravage's song]], [[ScrewedByTheLawyers but weird copyright restrictions kept them from using it]].

** The first phase of the battle against [[spoiler: Queen Sectonia]] in ''VodeoGame/KirbyTripleDeluxe'' opens with nothing but an OminousPipeOrgan, but mixes in guitar riffs later in the song.

** 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).
