* ''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.

* ''WesternAnimation/AeonFlux'''s theme tune was originally just a [[SuspiciouslySimilarSong Suspiciously Similar]] version of the theme from ''Franchise/IndianaJones'', as her debut short was a deconstruction of action movies. It was later remixed from a goofy, mock-triumphant, pseudo-orchestral sound into something more exotic and techno-ish for the later short ''Gravity''; this version then became her leitmotif in the TV series. The "Breen National Anthem", leitmotif of Aeon's main antagonists, has a similar story: it was originally created as the theme for a single Breen character, Vaarsche Lockney, meant to sound like a Creator/RichardWagner piece due to the character's Germanic looks...but it fit Bregna's authoritarian bent so well that the tune managed to outlast Lockney himself, who was spitted by an enemy swordsman half a minute into his first and only appearance.

* The song, [[http://www.infinitelooper.com/?v=t9BOjAHud4c Rowdy Rumble]] played during different mini-boss fights in ''VideoGame/KingdomHeartsII'', including most fights with {{Pete}}. The one time you fight Pete in ''Days'' also has this song, and in ''Dream Drop Distance'', encounters with Pete are the only time this song plays, ''period''. [[WesternAnimation/MickeyDonaldGoofyTheThreeMusketeers The Beagle Boys]] also get in on this song in the latter game, but they're Pete's personal lackeys and are later fought alongside him.

** When Miles Edgeworth finally returns in ''Justice for All'', 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.



*** "Pursuit - Cornered!" from the original game is the one many consider Phoenix's theme, while other people consider it 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's 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 [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IP9PoBlFDp4&feature=relmfu Turnabout Mode.]] The fans aren't complaining, though.

* Sans from ''VideoGame/{{Undertale}}'' has his own {{Leitmotif}} named after himself, and has a remix of the song named "Song That Might Play When You Fight Sans". However, the song most people associate him with is [[spoiler: his actual boss theme, MEGALOVANIA.]]
