If a character with a distinctive-sounding Leitmotif is in a production or episode with NoFourthWall (or at least some MediumAwareness), one of his or her fellows may [[LampshadeHanging make a comment]] on how loud and annoying their theme music is. (To which the character will almost always reply, "What theme music?") Can become a MusicalSpoiler for audiences if (or after) they recognize the theme. The character might also have their leitmotif as their own ringtone, for a subtler joke; see also LeftTheBackgroundMusicOn.

This is different from an ImageSong in that Image Songs exist only outside of the scope of the show that produced them. Compare with [[IAmSong "I Am" Song]].

A leitmotif is a recurring piece of music (or at least melody) that represents a character, action, or theme. This is a well-established technique used in almost every medium that involves music and story. The leitmotif technique was invented (or at least codified) by opera composer Creator/RichardWagner in the second half of the 19th Century. In his later operas, not only would every character have his/her own musical theme, but so did many objects, places, and even abstract ideas.

Leitmotifs are often named simply "<character>'s Theme" or "<noun> Motif"[[note]](though the name alone is not enough to establish it as a motif)[[/note]]. They often make up the [[{{BGM}} bulk]] of movie and anime soundtracks, and a fair chunk of video game soundtracks as well.
