* ''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=g1mO4v7Fu7Y 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.

''[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X9geXVAOFDg Rooftops of Venice]]'' is also a song associated with Ezio, with his theme in ''Videogame/{{Soul|Series}}calibur V'' being [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lmsIVpXcu5k a remix]] of the song.

* The Union Underground recorded [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qUMWkSvwSYE "Across the Nation"]] to be Test's theme; however, Wrestling/{{WWE}} decided to use it as the theme for its ''MondayNightRaw'' program instead. This required a bit of editing, as the original version featured a prominent "TEST!" chant in the bridge.

* While "Sexy Boy" has always been about ShawnMichaels, [[TheArtifact it refers specifically to the "Heart Break Kid" persona that he never used again after the mid-1990s]] (despite continuing to go by the nickname itself). The line "I'm not your boy-toy" is an indirect reference to Michaels's manager, [[Wrestling/SherriMartel Sensational Sherri]] (to whom he really ''was'' a boy-toy)...but Michaels continued to use the theme not only long after Sherri had left {{WWE}}, but after she had ''died''.
* John Cena's "You Can't See Me" continued to be his theme after he abandoned the rap gimmick. The song was originally used to promote Cena's rap album on which it appears. His well-known entrance theme, "The Time Is Now", was the first track on that album.

** "Harlequin" was originally the theme for John's Kernelsprite, which means it was also the theme of Nannasprite and the monsters John initially faces. It shows up multiple times throuightout act 1 and 2. But when the monsters become more varied (and less important) and Nanna's use as a CrutchCharacter decreases, it's heard a lot less. It eventually comes back as the theme for Gamzee.

* Matt and Pat of ''LetsPlay/TwoBestFriendsPlay'' used [[VideoGame/{{Kirby}}]]'s "Green Greens" theme for the title card and outro for ''VideoGame/KirbysEpicYarn'', their pilot episode on Machinima. They used it again for their second episode (''VideoGame/DonkeyKongCountryReturns'') and it's been used as their opening theme from then on, despite them only revisiting Kirby on the channel once since. It even received bootstrapped lyrics for season 2, an [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JJLUwLafvDg official remix]] when the channel expanded to become ''Super Best Friends Play'', and has even been remixed for specific [=LPs=] (such as ''[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3fA0vXYaYJI Bloodborne]]'' and ''Deus Ex'') to fit the theme of the game they are playing.

* "When You Wish Upon A Star" was just the opening theme to ''Disney/{{Pinocchio}}'', but now it is nothing short of THE song associated with all Disney theatrical productions, eventually becoming the song that plays with the logo before all its films.

* While the overall Sonic series and the classic titles are know for [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=E7GpTdXZATs this theme]], Thanks to ''VideoGame/SonicAdventure2'''s EvenBetterSequel status and its remake's NewbieBoom, Live and Learn, the main theme of the game, is arguably the theme of "Modern Sonic", either the series or the character. It was used in his ''Brawl'' introduction video, several promos for the 20th anniversary, and as his power up theme when fighting Shadow in ''Generations''.

* ''VideoGame/HaloReach'' does not have a piece explicitly stated to be the main theme, but because the "Unreconciled" portion of "Tip of The Spear" is so awesome and contains a reprise of the original ''Franchise/{{Halo}}'' theme, many consider it to be the main theme. Also, ''VideoGame/Halo3ODST'' also has no explicit main theme, but Orbital Drop Shock Trooper is widely considered to be the main theme, both because of its awesomeness and because of its title.

* 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]].
