* ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyVII CrisisCore'' follows this example, with nearly every track that isn't a remix of a ''FFVII'' song being based around the same theme. Including the ''final boss music''. In the original ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyVII'', the main theme appeared as a recurring riff as well.

* The ''Franchise/PowerRangers'' series has the phrase "Go, Go, Power Rangers!" It was the opening theme of the original ''Series/MightyMorphinPowerRangers'', but it truly became this in the second Saban era; the song was remixed for ''Series/PowerRangersSamurai'' and ''Series/PowerRangersMegaforce'' and the phrase still appears in the intro themes to ''Series/PowerRangersDinoCharge'' and ''Series/PowerRangersNinjaSteel''.

* ''Anime/DigimonAdventure'', ''Anime/DigimonAdventure02'' and especially ''Anime/DigimonTamers'' all did several takes on their opening themes for use as background music, more often than not with a more melancholic bent, with the ''Tamers'' theme in particular lending itself very well to this and getting more such takes of it done; ''Anime/DigimonXrosWars'' did the same for a piece of music which, while a definite leitmotif for the series, is not either of its opening themes.

* ''VideoGame/ActionDoom2UrbanBrawl'' has one of these. It first appears at the very beginning of the [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zYXRhqzPuNE intro theme]], then (if you're going the good way, because there are multiple paths through the game) pops up in [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yeev8am5D0M first stage intro]], [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wO6S8fFPMnU bar music]], end of [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vZHp75UeGhM the final level music]] and (in a warped form) [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F1Mnu2uZVak the final boss theme]], until it finally ([[MultipleEndings hopefully]]) returns [[{{Bookends}} at the very end of]] the [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=O0D3MkaDFPo good ending theme]].

** ''Super Mario 64'' also used a lot of variations on the same theme. It's most noticeable when comparing Cool, Cool Mountain[=/=]Snowman's Land with Tick Tock Clock[=/=]Rainbow Ride[=/=]Castle Secret Slide, as these two have very similar tempos and melodies, but if you listen closely, even Dire, Dire Docks shares the same basic progression at a much slower tempo.
