** A RecurringRiff that is featured at the end of Eternity's Shylock and Descend, as well as being featured at the start of Umbral Ultimatum is shaping up to be an important theme for chaotic events to come.

* ''VideoGame/FireEmblem'' has a [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oVlE8u6Hhp8 well-known theme song]], but the encounter/recruitment theme known as "Together, We Ride" is equally associated with the franchise in West, due to it being labeled as the "Fire Emblem theme" in ''[[VideoGame/SuperSmashBros Super Smash Bros. Melee]]'' and that game being [[MarthDebutedInSmashBros the debut for the series outside Japan]]. Oddly enough, [[https://youtu.be/75VzljdUE-s the rendition used]] in the game does contain portions of the actual theme song in its latter half.

* ''Franchise/TheLegendOfZelda'' has the first game's overworld theme. ''VideoGame/ZeldaIITheAdventureOfLink'' only reused the intro. But with few exceptions, such as ''Ocarina of Time'' and ''The Wind Waker'', it always makes a return to cement it as the Zelda theme (''Wind Waker'' even plays it over the intro recapping ''Ocarina of Time'', turning it into a BootstrappedLeitmotif for Link as well).

* ''Disney/OliverAndCompany'': "Why Should I worry" was originally just the IAmSong for the character Dodger, but is easily the most iconic song from the movie.
* ''Disney/{{Pinocchio}}'' has "When You Wish Upon A Star"...technically. While it is the theme associated with the film, it is far more notable for becoming the Bootstrapped Theme for '''for the entire [[Creator/{{Disney}} Walt Disney Corporation]]'''.

* The ''Film/SilentHill'' movies use "Promise (Reprise)" as an impromptu theme. It originated in one scene from the second video game, but is used repeatedly in both movies and also opens the trailers to both. Ironically, the first installment of the video game series has an actual theme song titled "Silent Hill", which has the vocal reprise "Home Town" in the third game, but only the opening of this song is ever heard in the movies - over the studio logo to the first film, before the movie proper even starts.

* "Island Swing" (also referred to as "Kongo Jungle" thanks to ''VideoGame/SuperSmashBros'') quickly became this for the ''VideoGame/DonkeyKongCountry'' series of games, before usurping the [[VideoGame/DonkeyKong original arcade game]]'s theme to become this for the franchise as a whole.

* ''Franchise/{{Metroid}}'': ''VideoGame/SuperMetroid'' had a couple different boss battle themes that played for multiple bosses. The one that just happened to play during encounters with Ridley (along with Torizo, Draygon, and the escape sequences) has been permanently branded as the "Theme of Ridley". Being the most recognizable recurring boss of the series, each new Metroid game brings with it a new remix of the theme whenever he appears. Funnily enough, ''Metroid Fusion'' had two different remixes of this theme, the second of which was used as an escape theme. ''VideoGame/SuperSmashBros Brawl'' also had two remixes of this same track for two different versions of Ridley. In a similar fashion, the ''Zero Mission'' remake makes Kraid's boss theme the other main boss theme from ''Super Metroid'' (which was used for Kraid, Phantoon, and Crocomire), effectively making it his {{Leitmotif}}.
