* ''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]]".

** Link was never given a {{Leitmotif}} in the first games, despite almost every other character getting one. 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.

* "Hooray For Captain Spaulding" from ''Theatre/AnimalCrackers'' became [[MarxBrothers Groucho Marx]]'s theme song in this manner (most explicitly as the theme to ''Series/YouBetYourLife'').
