Added DiffLines:

* In every ''Franchise/StarTrek'' spin-off finale, a version of the show's theme plays at the end of the last episode over a shot of the show's ship (or station in the case of Deep Space Nine). The kind-of exception to this rule is Enterprise, which uses the show's ending credits theme instead of its opening, and also features Next Generation's theme. Voyager and Next Generation both feature a variation on their theme in their pilot episodes.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Series/BreakingBad'' does this near the end of its penultimate episode, "Granite State", with the track "Dimple Pinch Neat" which starts out as something unrelated, but eventually transitions in the series' intro theme. Notably, this is the only time said theme is actually heard inside an episode.

** ''Series/KaizokuSentaiGokaiger'' does a variation. During a tribute episode, whenever they transform into the focused team, said teams theme music played. There are only three times when this wasn't done, and the reasons are because TheyJustDidntCare, to avert MoodWhiplash and because of popularity over the actual opening, respectively.

* In ''VideoGame/FireEmblemAwakening'', the finale chapter [[ZigZaggingTrope Zig Zags]] this. The music is called Id ~Purpose~, meaning it's a variant of Robin's theme. The fact that it starts playing after [[spoiler:Naga heals and blesses the party]] means this counts as a ThemeMusicPowerUp. It counts as this trope because a variant of Id is what plays on the Main Menu, when selecting a new game and such (which can make any time Id or one of its variants appears a TitleThemeDrop, most notably with the variant exclusive to the bosses in the future past DLC). It sounds the furthest removed from Id (for reasons such as having latin lyrics), however, and you might need the name to tip you off that yes, this is Robin's theme, so it might be a [[SubvertedTrope Subversion.]] But if you let the song go on long enough, you'll begin to easily recognize the music, though not as Id, but rather the theme of the entire series that's always used on the title theme. This also counts it as a ThemeTuneCameo, especially since there's no trace of it being based on Awakening's particular version of the title theme, but rather the more common version across the series. The lyrics are also the same ones that were made up for ''[[VideoGame/SuperSmashBrothers Super Smash Brothers Brawl]]''
