* 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/SuperSmashBrothers'' games and used as a song for at least one Kirby-themed stage (except within the 3DS 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.

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

* ''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]] would 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 remake the theme into their main themes.
