* An inversion of this trope occurs in the ''VideoGame/FireEmblemAkaneia''. In ''Shadow Dragon'', the track entitled "The Proud Commanded" was the Leitmotif for Camus and Michalis. In ''New Mystery'', it's used as background music for any vaguely-intimidating boss, and even a few recruitable characters!

* ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons'': Sideshow Bob's theme. His theme is the title music for ''Film/CapeFear'', since the episode it was first used in was a parody of ''CapeFear''. It wasn't meant to represent Bob, but since he was the bad guy, it naturally played only when he was onscreen. The producers ran with it and now it's quite explicitly his theme, always playing when he first appears in an episode (just in time for Bart and Lisa to shout in unison: "AAAAAAH! SIDESHOW BOB!").

** 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.

* ''VideoGame/RogueSquadron'': In the SoundTest, a track from ''Film/TheEmpireStrikesBack'' is labeled "Snowspeeder Theme", as it was heard when the snowspeeders are searching for Luke and Han in the movie. Oddly enough, the track wasn't meant for that scene - it's an edited version of "Hyperspace" that replaced the original cue.

** ''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.

* 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.
