* ''Anime/MekakucityActors'', being the anime extension of ''KagerouProject'' (a Vocaloid project) has a ton of these. Every character gets at least one (Takane and Mary get two, Momo and Hibiya get a joint-second), plus several other 'plot-based' songs. There are 23 songs in total, with one actually topping the [[http://www.nicovideo.jp/mylist/39943124 2013 Yearly Vocaloid Rankings]].

*** One could argue that both "Rules of Nature" is a shared song for both the [=UGs=] RAY and Grad and Raiden. One interpretation is the song has the idea that the "strong" (i.e. the two [=UGs=]) can be overpowered by "the agile prey" (Raiden) through quick thinking. Another is that all 3 are "a predator on the verge of death"; due to how quickly cybernetics advanced between ''VideoGame/MetalGearSolid4GunsOfThePatriots'' and ''Rising: Revengence'' Unmanned Gears, with the slight exception of Gekkos and other [=UGs=], have become obsolete as [[{{Cyborg}} cyborgs]] can quickly handle them as well as Raiden's own cybernetics have become outdated, letting Sam beat him with little effort [[spoiler: despite only having a artificial arm.]]

* The ''Anime/TenchiMuyo'' series -- or group of series variants -- has released a whole lot of [=CDs=], including a Christmas album. Characters have several songs that could be Image Songs, and some made their way into the first television series (which followed, and re-structured, the {{OVA}}, during karaoke on-board ship. A few of these were released in America by Pioneer, including one CD called "Meet The Tenchi Muyo" that mimicked the appearance of several Beatles albums.

** The album Rokkenjima in Love (released alongside [=EP6=]) contains Image Songs for Battler, Maria, Bernkastel, Kumasawa/Virgilia, Kyrie, Beatrice, The Seven Sisters of Purgatory, Ange, and one for the [=EP3=] myth battle between Beatrice and Virgilia. Beatrice's second Image Song deserves mention, though, for being instrumentalized and used as epic BGM in [=EP7=].

A song specific in content and tone to a character from an anime, sung by the character's voice performer -- usually on a soundtrack CD.

The animation houses which produce anime are nothing if not masters of cross-marketing and cross-promotion. One means by which a series is promoted and supported in the Japanese media marketplace is (as is sometimes the case in the United States) the original soundtrack CD. In the early days of this practice, such [=CDs=] usually contained nothing more than the program's opening and closing themes, as well as most or all of the incidental music heard in the show. Eventually, though, the producers of such discs began to take advantage of the fact that most Japanese voice performers are also professional singers, often of the "idol" variety which drives the Japanese pop music market. They began to write songs that typified -- and sometimes explored more deeply -- the characters.

* ''LizzieMcGuire'' has "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jL6sZIJXHrc I Can't Wait]]", a Brooke [=McClymont=] that Hilary Duff covered, singing "as" [[LizzieMcGuire her character]]. The song is on both of the LizzieMcGuire albums and caught a lot of airplay on Radio Disney back in the day, and was actually released as a single in Happy Meals in 2004 (along with another CD that had "Lizzie" narrating a few episodes, although the voice actress was not really Hilary).

** On the Japanese side, there's Satoshi's themes ''Spurt!'' and ''XY&Z'' which are openings, May's theme is ''Watashi Makenai'' (one of the ending themes), Hikari has ''Kimi no Soba de'' and Eureka has ''Puni-chan no Uta'' (Also an ending). Instrumentals of these are usually heard during their contest appeals. Team Rocket have "Rocket-Dan Yo Eien Ni" which they have occasionally sung in place of their motto. Brock has "Takeshi no Paradise", originally an EndingTheme which he later started singing in episodes whenever there's a need for some kind or distraction. And Kojiro has "Lucky Lucky", a flirtatious [[HurricaneOfPuns Hurricane of (Pokémon) Puns]]. Vocal versions of both these songs have made it into the dub.
