* During the first [[UsefulNotes/TheGulfWar Gulf War]], American pilots would frequently blast "Rock The Casbah" by Music/TheClash, which features a line about "dropping bombs between the minarets." The band were ''not impressed'' when they found out. In fairness, it was an anti-Gulf War song about the endless violence in the middle east, so you can see why they might have been a teensy bit annoyed when it was used while actually bombing the middle east.

* Unsurprisingly since the game is about a PunkRock band, ''VideoGame/CharlieMurder'' has a lot of rock/metal-laden boss battle music ranging from [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gnu78bV-src When All the Freaks Come Out]], [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XWKXhwERng8 Wasted]] to [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=t81I0-Yzpl4 Lord of Chaos]]

* ''[[VideoGame/PokemonRubyAndSapphire Pokémon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire]]'' gives [[spoiler:Wally]] a climactic, rocking battle theme when fought in Victory Road, a contrast to the more upbeat tune that played earlier in the game, [[spoiler:reflecting his character growth from a sickly, timid boy to a confident strategist]].

** Thanks to the improved sound capabilities of the Nintendo [=3DS=], many of the "important battle" themes in ''VideoGame/PokemonXAndY'' have rocking guitars lying underneath fast-paced techno beats,
** After flirting with this in ''X'' and ''Y'', as mentioned above,
''[[VideoGame/PokemonRubyAndSapphire Pokémon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire]]'' goes all out and gives [[spoiler:Wally]] a climactic, rocking battle theme when fought in Victory Road, which is a contrast to [[BossRemix remix]] of the more upbeat tune theme that played earlier in the game, [[spoiler:reflecting his game. It reflects [[spoiler: Wally's character growth from a sickly, timid boy to a confident strategist]].

* Inverted in ''VideoGame/{{Persona 3}}'': The battle theme for EvilCounterpart Strega is a rock song aptly titled [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xIn7yWzwCeo "Unavoidable Battle."]]
** ''VideoGame/{{Persona 4}}'' follows in its predecessor's stead by using a fun, catchy, vocalized tune for standard battles, then rocking out for bosses - [[EarWorm most memorably]], [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_58-XYXuJMs "I'll Face Myself,"]] played for the characters' shadow counterparts. And then it all gets completely inverted with [[spoiler:the secret ''real'' final boss and its fully-orchestrated theme, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=N_ghYuPzvqE "Genesis."]]]]
** As well as [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rdMhTL5bZrs "Battle For Everyone's Souls."]]
** The UpdatedRerelease of the original ''VideoGame/{{Persona}}'' adds in some rock to it's [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G6Olve5ACYQ final battle music.]] Also [[VideoGame/{{Persona 3}} ''Portable'']] gives us [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jbkLkVgqop0 Danger Zone.]]
** ''VideoGame/DevilSurvivor'' has this just before the respective ending. Your plan has worked, the remaining doubts have been cleared and the path to [[spoiler: Babel]] is open. Cue epic music (appropriately named "Final Battle").
* For non-Persona Atlus games, there's the quest boss theme for [[VideoGame/EtrianOdyssey Etrian Odyssey 4]], [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Cw6Wc3VzNzE The End of Raging Winds]]

* ''VideoGame/ShinMegamiTenseiIIINocturne''[='s=] endgame is basically made of this trope, to the point where one path ends with what can best be described as a [[OrchestraHitTechnoBattle techno]] [[HeavyMetal rock]] [[TrueFinalBoss battle]]. [[AfterTheEnd at the end of the universe]]. [[LouisCypher with]] [[{{Satan}} the]] [[OneWingedAngel Devil]]. The other endings save [[NoFinalBossForYou one]] separates the two - the FinalBoss (a combination of the Sun, the Moon, and God that looks like a disco ball) starts out with techno before it becomes pure rock when he goes OneWingedAngel.

** ''VideoGame/DevilSurvivor'' has this just before the respective ending. Your plan has worked, the remaining doubts have been cleared and the path to [[spoiler: Babel]] is open. Cue epic music (appropriately named "Final Battle").
** ''VideoGame/{{Persona 3}}'' has the the rocking "Master of Tartarus" for the Tartarus Guardian bosses, fast paced drum-heavy "Unavoidable Battle" when the protagonist first summons his Persona [[spoiler:which reappears for battles against Strega]], and a [[spoiler:remix of the Velvet Room theme titled "Battle Hymn of the Soul"]] for the final boss. In the ''Portable'' version, "Master of Tartarus" is replaced with the heavier "Danger Zone" when playing as the female protagonist.
** ''VideoGame/{{Persona 4}}'' has j-rock vocal tune "Reach Out to the Truth" for regular battles, replaced with the equally-rocking "Time to Make History" in the ''Golden'' rerelease. Most of the bosses have imposing rock instrumental themes: the metal "I'll Face Myself (-Battle-)" for Shadow Selves and optional bosses, the droning "A New World Fool" for [[spoiler:Kunino-sagiri and the Killer]], the triumphant "The Almighty" for [[spoiler:Ameno-sagiri]], and the foreboding "The Fog" for [[spoiler: the first phase of true final boss Izanami]]. Turned on its head with [[spoiler:the theme for the second phase of Izanami, "The Genesis", which is an orchestrated theme (albeit with some heavy guitars)]] in a game that mostly has a rock and pop soundtrack.
** ''VideoGame/Persona4Arena'' has numerous rock themes for the soundtrack, such as Kanji's "A Pure-Hearted Beast" and Akihiko's "The Wandering Wolf".
** ''VideoGame/PersonaQShadowOfTheLabyrinth'' has the imposing "F.O.E." when battling [=F.O.Es=] and [[spoiler:the Velvet Room siblings]], and the rap rock "Laser Beam" against story bosses.

* In the No Mercy Route, you face off against the hardest boss in the game, [[spoiler: Sans]]. The track that plays, Megalovania is amazing. A good thing, [[ThatOneBoss considering you will probably be hearing it a lot...]]
** Likewise, the final battle of a pacifist run uses no less than four different themes, three of which (the upbeat and heroic "Hopes and Dreams" and "Save the World" and the more sinister "Burn in Despair!") are heavy on the electric guitar.

* ''VideoGame/TheWalkingDead'' in Season 1 Episode 5 has a determined, yet maudlin,[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-yf9GqN9xxM electric guitar track]] to accompany Lee as he carves his way through a horde of walkers to get to Clementine, before reaching the antagonist for a final confrontation. Appropriately, it's named "Armed With Death".

* Used awesomely, hilariously and very Americanly in ''TeamAmericaWorldPolice'', as the heroes jet off to fight terrorists while the over-the-top anthem [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IhnUgAaea4M "'Merica, Fuck Yeah!"]] blares in the background.

* While most of the pieces in the soundtracks to the ''Franchise/PiratesOfTheCaribbean'' series are epic orchestral pieces by HansZimmer, a few numbers take it UpToEleven (literally) with distorted electric guitar lines blaring over the strings and winds.
** Played with in ''Dead Man's Chest'', where it was revealed by Zimmer in an interview that what many people thought to be electric guitar was actually the orchestra played though a guitar amplifier.
