A typical power ballad will open with a solo keyboard or acoustic guitar, with more instruments and more elaborate melodies brought in as the song progresses, building up to a dramatic finale. An electric guitar solo close to the halfway point is pretty much obligatory. The lyrics usually talk about love, but not always. If done wrong, power ballads are very susceptible to becoming {{Narm}} and called "cheesy" as a result; if done right, they can be powerful {{tear jerker}}s and be considered "epic". [[TakeAThirdOption Or]] a [[NarmCharm mix of the two]].

A very common feature in the setlists of HardRock and HairMetal bands in the [[TheEighties Eighties]], although they don't have a monopoly on the genre by any means.
