* Possibly the best example of this is "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JgoPl35n_AY Linus and Lucy"]] of ''{{Peanuts}}/Charlie Brown'', which went from character theme to theme of the whole series. Complicated by the fact that there was already a tune, also composed by Music/VinceGuaraldi, called "Charlie Brown Theme", which is damn near impossible to find since everyone calls "Linus and Lucy" the Charlie Brown Theme anyway. Listen to possibly the only video example of it on [=YouTube=] [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=80ojk1dwbos here.]]

** Reach Out for the Truth, the main battle theme for VideoGame/{{Persona 4}} is a wierd case of both this and BootstrappedLietmotif. The song is often seen as the main theme for the game it appears in, but it became the battle theme for Yu in VideoGame/{{Persona 4 Arena}}

** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lsfhADiaP5E "I Wanna Take You For a Ride"]], the character select screen music from ''VideoGame/MarvelvsCapcom2'', a game infamous for its SoundtrackDissonance. This song is the only piece of music that's fondly remembered among fans. It was sampled for a song called "Take U 4 Ryde" by Talib Kweli and Oh No for the ''Marvel vs. Capcom 2'' mixtape and the latest ''VideoGame/MarvelVsCapcom3'' [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Zr4TIZ0bD3Q trailer]] has a remix of the song playing at the end of the trailer.

* You Will Know Our Names, the [[BossInMookClothing Unique Monster]] battle theme in ''VideoGame/{{Xenoblade}}'' has become this after being used in Shulk's reveal trailer in [[VideoGame/SuperSmashBros Super Smash Bros. 4]] and the battle theme of [[spoiler:Fiora]] in [[VideoGame/ProjectXZone Project X Zone 2]].

* ''Manga/{{Berserk}}''. "[[Music/SusumuHirasawa HAIIIIIII YAI FOOOOOOR-CES!!!]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DWfrDG0nmlk HAIIIIIII YAI FOOOOOOR-CES!!!]]" This particular chorus from the song "Forces" was just a image song used in some battle sequences and in the previews for the next episode, but it's the most iconic song in ''Manga/{{Berserk}}'' and when you hear that chorus, you seriously just want to [[FollowTheBouncingBall sing along.]] It was also the theme to the trailer, so it's quite likely the first exposure many people would have had to the series.

* It was originally presumed that the song "Run, Kirby, Run!" (AKA the first Gourmet Race theme from ''VideoGame/KirbySuperstar'') was the theme song to the Kirby series as a whole due to it being remixed three times within the ''VideoGame/SuperSmashBros'' games and used as a song for at least one Kirby-themed stage (except within the 3DS [[note]]excluding DLC[[/note]] game where it doesn't appear at all). However, it's becoming increasingly apparent after ''[[VideoGame/KirbySuperstar Kirby Superstar Ultra]]'' that it's actually [[Level1MusicRepresents GREEN GREENS]] from ''VideoGame/KirbysDreamland'' that turned into the both the series' theme song as well as Kirby's due to the fact that it appears in future games in one form or another, sometimes even during cutscenes when Kirby himself is on the screen.

* ''Franchise/AssassinsCreed'' developed this prompting accusations of Ezio being a SpotlightStealingSquad. The main theme of Assassin's Creed II, [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FSVHx23ByhM Ezio's Family]] has come to represent the main theme of the entire franchise. [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iVxQWa7HeVs Unity]], [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lmlCudR3JPk Rogue]] and [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=N9GYrRaRhIM Syndicate]] would incorporate the theme into their main themes.

* ''Series/RedDwarf'''s original opening theme used melodies from the closing theme, but the resemblance was not obvious because it was done in the style of Also sprach Zarathustra (featured in 2001: A Space Oddesy). From Series 3 onwards, this was replaced with a rock instrumental version of the closing theme. The original opening theme continued to be used as incidental music.

** While character themes shuffle around quite a bit, a few fighters were able to keep their [[{{Leitmotif}} iconic music]].
