* In fact, practically every Japanese RPG will fall prey to this, at the very least remixing its main theme three or four times. Examples include ''VideoGame/ChronoTrigger'', ''VideoGame/BahamutLagoon'', and ''VagrantStory''.

* In ''TwistedMetal: Black'', the melody of Music/TheRollingStones' "[[RealSongThemeTune Paint it Black]]" pops up at several points in the soundtrack. Blink, and you'll miss it.

* Many songs in ''SuikodenV'' use one of two riffs--a fairly upbeat one from the world map theme and a melancholy one that appears pri-marily in cutscenes. The former riff in particular shows up all over the place.

* SoundHorizon uses recurring riffs as an indicator that certain songs (often on separate albums) are connected to each other in some way (such as suggesting that the Rose Princess's abandoned child from "Bara No Tou De Nemuru Himegimi" is Lafrenze from "Majo to Lafrenze", or that Michelle Malebranche from the cage trilogy is responsible for Hiver's inability to be born into the world in ''Roman'').
* The tune of Owl City's song "Hello Seattle" is used in a few later songs, such as "How I Became the Sea."

* ''ShugoChara'': Yuuki No Uta and ''especially'' the Open Heart theme, which has an honestly hilarious amount of variations, for such differing situations. [[CrowningMusicofAwesome Not like either of them are or get tired/boring, though.]]

* ''VideoGame/SuperSmashBrosBrawl'' has a good deal of its original music based around an orchestral piece composed by Creator/NobuoUematsu, which has [[OminousLatinChanting lyrics written in Latin]].
** ''Melee'' did the same thing, with a tune that sounds similar to Bowser's theme from ''SuperMario64''. It shows up predominantly as the Menu theme, but can also be heard in [[MultiMookMelee Multi-Man Melee]] modes, and boss battles. ''Melee[='s=]'' own opening theme shows up in some tracks as well, with the alternate menu music, some event matches, and an alternate track for Final Destination.
** [[VideoGame/SuperSmashBros Super Smash Bros for 3DS and WiiU]] has it's own RecurringRiff , which is used just as much as Brawl's.

sounds similar to Bowser's theme from ''SuperMario64''. It shows up predominantly as the Menu theme, but can also be heard in [[MultiMookMelee Multi-Man Melee]] modes, and boss battles. ''Melee[='s=]'' own opening theme shows up in some tracks as well, with the alternate menu music, some event matches, and an alternate track for Final Destination.
** [[VideoGame/SuperSmashBros Super Smash Bros ''VideoGame/SuperSmashBrosBrawl'' has a rather unforgettable theme, used for 3DS the Menu, Multi-Ban Brawl, Target Smash, Battlefield and WiiU]] Final Destination stages, and even the title: the latter is an orchestral piece composed by Creator/NobuoUematsu, which has it's [[OminousLatinChanting lyrics written in Latin]].

own RecurringRiff , which is used just as much as Brawl's.Brawl's (but is less impressive).
