* In ''VideoGame/ShinMegamiTenseiIVApocalypse'', the theme of the final dungeon is a remix of the Major Boss theme from ''VideoGame/ShinMegamiTenseiII'', most likely due to the fact that a sizable amount of people exclusively associate that song with [[spoiler:YHVH, the final boss of ''II'', and the dungeon is an entire universe ruled and controlled by YHVH, who is fought at the end of it]].

** On a related note, VinceMcMahon's theme, "No Chance in Hell", originally began as the theme to the 1999 Royal Rumble.

** The second game, ''[[VisualNovel/PhoenixWrightAceAttorney Justice For All]]'', has a track called "Investigation - In the Midst 2002". While not technically considered a character theme, every instance of the song is connected to the defendant of the case it appears in, Matt Engarde, so is is any wonder that it is generally considered to be his theme?
** Its DarkReprise, "Investigation - Core 2002", [[spoiler:is first played when he shows his true colors, so it again gets this treatment and is considered the "Evil Matt Engarde Theme"]] Oddly enough, the same track ends up ''inverting'' this trope in the following game. While it was practically a Leitmotif in ''JFA'', it becomes a general 'dark secret' theme in ''Trials and Tribulations''.
** In the same case, when Miles Edgeworth finally returns, the theme "Great Revival" plays many of the times he is on screen, along with other non-Edgeworth-y events, such as [[spoiler:Franziska von Karma arriving with evidence]]. Jump ahead 7 years, and "Great Revival" is remixed into numerous themes of [[VisualNovel/AceAttorneyInvestigationsMilesEdgeworth Edgeworth's spinoff game]], including the "Objection!" theme and end credits, essentially cementing itself as Edgeworth's Leitmotif. It gets remixed again in the second Edgeworth game.
** There's also "Pursuit - Cornered!" which many consider Phoenix's theme, while other people consider as both his AND Edgeworth's theme. He has a theme proper in "Objection! 2001" but Cornered appears in a flashback with both Phoenix and Edgeworth and was also used in the final moment of Phoenix' trilogy, while "Objection! 2001" only appeared in the first game. It got to the point that upon his appearance in ''[[VideoGame/MarvelVsCapcom3 Ultimate Marvel vs Capcom 3]]'' he is the only character with TWO themes, his [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Lbv5AJDh9o8 proper theme]] and "Pursuit - Cornered!" for his GameBreaker [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IP9PoBlFDp4&feature=relmfu Turnabout Mode.]] The fans aren't complaining, though.
** The same happens for [[VisualNovel/ApolloJusticeAceAttorney Apollo Justice]]. He has a proper theme used for his Objections, but many people also associate him with "Investigation - Cornered!"[[note]]Note that his original theme song is still his official theme. It even gets a more calmer remix when he's not the viewpoint character of the chapter in ''VisualNovel/PhoenixWrightAceAttorneyDualDestinies''.[[/note]]

** While it happened a little more slowly for the main villain of ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyVI'', Kefka is now more associated with "[[https://youtu.be/JbXVNKtmWnc Dancing Mad]]," the song played during his FinalBoss fight, than "[[https://youtu.be/En74Svh44Zg Kefka]]," the leitmotif used for him in all of his other appearances in the game.

* ''Franchise/{{Kirby}}'': The boss fights for Kabula are remixes of the [[VideoGame/KirbysDreamLand first game]]'s powerup theme (used for the Spicy Food/Curry and Mint Leaf/Sweet Potato powerups). Kabula was originally fought after consuming a Mint Leaf/Sweet Potato, so the powerup theme was used instead of the normal boss theme for that fight. [[EarlyInstallmentWeirdness Those types of powerups are no longer used in the series]], so the song was repurposed.

** Link was never given a {{Leitmotif}} in the first games, despite almost every other character getting one. However, ever since ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaTheWindWaker'', the series' main theme became Link's motif as well, eventually being canonized within the lore of the games via ThemeTurnCameo as "[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=acDvui4bzSk Song of the Hero]]".

However, ever since ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaTheWindWaker'', the original game's title/overworld theme appears to have become Link's motif as well, being a case of BOTH a BootstrappedTheme (as the Main Theme of the series) AND a BootstrappedLeitmotif. It then [[ThemeTuneCameo shows up again]] as the [[spoiler: "Song of the Hero"]], practically canon-izing its status as this trope.

** Saria's Song is an interesting case in that it is specifically her leitmotif even though it was also used in other contexts in ''Ocarina of Time''. However, while she didn't appear in any later games in the series, the song continued to appear in forested areas... and due to both an ''Ocarina'' sidequest and his connection to creepy forests, it has spent more games representing ''the Skull Kid'' (in ''[[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaMajorasMask Majora's Mask]]'' and ''[[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaTwilightPrincess TwilightPrincess]]'') than its originally intended character.
