** The "Peach's Castle" theme from ''Super Mario 64'' is also frequently used, to a far lesser extent. Nearly every game that has a segment that takes place in Peach's Castle will use a variation on that theme, even as a simple cameo. It was even in the SNES game ''VideoGame/DonkeyKongCountry3''.

* ''DonkeyKongCountry2'' has the title theme developed into the boss theme, Klubba's theme, and the theme for levels atop ship rigging.
* ''Franchise/TombRaider 3'' has several of these, eg the opening and title theme motifs. ''[[VideoGame/TombRaiderLegend Legend]]'' has a recurring OneWomanWail and "[[OminousLatinChanting Ave Maria]]" motif.

* Music/PoetsOfTheFall's "[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AzsiE44Lz_w Late Goodbye]]," the ThemeSong of ''VideoGame/MaxPayne2TheFallOfMaxPayne,'' is a melancholic country-inspired tune hummed, sung and played on piano by multiple characters in-game before appearing in full as its SolemnEndingTheme. Max even owns [[https://youtu.be/AzsiE44Lz_w?list=PLjACqN5i5sDVBPJGHevomO4YZd9wwVLkS the album]].

* The ''VideoGame/SyphonFilter'' games have a memorable title theme along with several recurring in-game motifs. The title theme motif recurs the most in the PS2 games.

** ''Yoshi's New Island'', too. ''VideoGame/YoshisWoollyWorld'' is just about the only Yoshi game past the first that doesn't follow this trope, and it still has a "main theme" heard in a few tracks.

* "I'll Face Myself" from ''VideoGame/{{Persona 4}}'' has a main riff that appears in several other pieces: "Corner of Memories", the main menu theme [[spoiler:which reappears in the good and true ending sequences]], and "Never More", [[spoiler:the good/true credits theme]]. The guitar-laden BossRemix of "I'll Face Myself" oddly does not contain said riff.
