** ''Super Smash Bros. Melee'' continued the trend with Venom's Stage [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Sqe3XMO9tEo theme]]. Even though Venom had an entirely different theme in all previous titles, the theme has become so synonymous with the ''Star Fox'' series that it couldn't be helped.

Even though Venom had an entirely different theme in all previous titles, titles (one of which, ironically, was used for Corneria, the other Star Fox stage in the same game), the theme has become so synonymous with the ''Star Fox'' series that it couldn't be helped.

* The composers of the ''Franchise/{{Halo}}'' soundtracks said that they didn't intend to apply leitmotifs, but many music pieces can be bootstrapped to characters or locations, eg "Enough Dead Heroes" = Cortana, "Shadows" and "Devils...Monsters" = the Flood, "The Last Spartan" = Master Chief, "Weight of Failure" = the Arbiter (and later the Separatists), "Destroyer's Invocation" = Tartarus, "High Charity" = the Prophets, "Penance" = Delta Halo, "Earth City" = the Scarab, "Under Cover of Night" = Sgt. Johnson(his death scene uses a DarkReprise of it), "In Amber Clad" = Cmdr. Keyes, "Farthest Outpost" = the Ark.
** "Orbital Drop Shock Trooper" = the ODST team, "The Battle Begins" = Battle for Reach, "Noble Mission" = Noble Team, "Lone Wolf"/"Noble Six" = Noble Six, "Follow Our Brothers" = Elite Seperatists, "Ashes" = Kat/New Alexandria, "Make It Count" = Jorge, "Finish the Fight" = the Portal, "Sword Control" = Sword Base, "Rain"/"The Rookie" = The Rookie, etc.

* 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.]]

*** To a lesser extent, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9OYC4ScZeic&feature=related Freezer]] and [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X-gUfx5QEmA&feature=related Cell]]'s themes also apply. These are better in the sense that, at least, they're exclusive to that saga, but still fit here because they're not exclusive to Freezer and Cell respectively, as they both originate from movies. The former being a battle rendition of Garlic Jr.'s leitmotif from Movie 01 and the latter originating as a battle cue from Movie 06.

*** Pretty much all the ''Anime/DragonBallZ'' characters' leitmotifs (except [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DMPvHtWTdYM Gohan]] and [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ONyGzRnJyHI&feature=related Piccolo]], who have an official leitmotif) fall into this trope. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0-rqq5u78Xs&feature=related Broly]] and [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yZjoUPgZA4M&feature=related Cooler]] also have an unofficial leitmotif.

*** The Saiyans' theme ended up being [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_ZMQObv7VEw&feature=related Vegeta's theme]], because he's by far the most important of the (evil) Saiyans, and the only one who survives. Although it appears whenever one of the evil Saiyans is on screen (it first appears with Raditz), after Raditz and Nappa die it can only appear with Vegeta on screen. It doesn't help that it's used much after than even the Namek saga (this tropes remembers hearing it during at least during the Androids saga, when Vegeta appears to save Goku from Android 19).

** The song most commonly known as Zelda's Lullaby originated in ''[[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaALinkToThePast A Link to the Past]]'' as the song played when rescuing one of the Maidens. It returned as Zelda's {{Leitmotif}} in ''[[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaOcarinaOfTime Ocarina of Time]]'' and has being associated with her ever since. (However, this one's a bit less clear than most: the ''full'' version of the song only plays in ''A Link to the Past'' once: when you meet Zelda at the beginning of the game. Every time thereafter is an alternate version that leaves a movement out.)

* ''Franchise/{{Terminator}}'': The Terminator leitmotif (Dum-Dum-Dut-Dum-Dum) was first created in the ''second'' film. In the first film, a similar but different leitmotif is heard during key scenes (opening credits, police shootout, closing credits). Further, in the first two films, the Terminator actually had an entirely different leitmotif when it appeared in most scenes. It wasn't until the third film (headed by an entirely different production crew) that the leitmotif was attached to the character himself, but it has remained that way ever since.
