* ''VideoGame/MetroidZeroMission'' gives the player a twofer - near the end of the game, after [[spoiler:(re)gaining the Gravity Suit]], instead of a remix of the original ItemGet [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=P9eUYS7Z16A jingle]] you hear [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jBOE2zMxFgw something closer]] to the music of ''MetroidPrime''. Then you're treated to [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wEPmfXUQGgw a kick-ass remix]] of the [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hlrOAEr6dXc the Brinstar theme]], the first music heard in the game after the opening titles and Samus's fanfare.

* ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyIX''. Beatrix's gloomy theme is revisited as a much more uplifting, spirited theme later on during a fight in a certain plot-important town.
** It's actually remixed once before that as well, into a sadder, more introspective version, when the player sees that she's actually torn for having to follow the queen's evil plans.
* A somewhat less emphatic example from ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyX'': The melancholy piano theme "Zanarkand", played during the introduction, is turned into "Sprouting", a fairly bouncy exploration theme that plays while wandering on several sections of road between areas.
** Suteki Da Ne, Tidus and Yuna's love theme, first plays as a soft ballad in Macalania Forest when they [[RelationshipUpgrade kiss for the first time]]. It plays over the end credits, this time a triumphant orchestral remix. [[spoiler:At this point, Tidus has died with Sin]], and Yuna has delivered a sorrowful but triumphant speech to all of Spira, asking them to never forget those they have lost.
* ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyX2'''s lead song "1000 Words" is first sung as a sad ballad which accompanies a cutscene detailing Lenne and Shuyin's deaths (which led to Shuyin becoming the game's antagonist). A triumphant and more upbeat version plays during the end credits.
* Compare the LonelyPianoPiece [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GGviDMKLrz4 opening theme]] of ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyXIII'' to its soaring, orchestral [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GRu2WD6MtUs ending theme]].
** Also,'' [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fUyAPNzRa2E Prelude to Final Fantasy XIII]] ''reprises'' [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=T9_CCT4gNW4 Final Fantasy XIII - Miracles]] ''. The former, while quite triumphant in itself, sets the tone for the game, while the latter is played just before the FinalBoss, when the party are all brought back from the DespairEventHorizon and [[HeroicSecondWind resolve to stand together until the end]].
* During the ending credits of ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyVI'', Nobuo Uematsu does this with all [[LoadsAndLoadsOfCharacters 13]] [[{{Leitmotif}} character themes]].
** It goes on for 15 minutes, then we are given a 2-minute fade-out and THEN the Final Fantasy Theme, which is kind of a Leitmotif for the whole series, kicks in. [[SugarWiki/AwesomeMusic Awesome]] doesn't even come close.
** Shadow's theme is an exception to the Triumphant Reprise rule as he is [[spoiler:DrivenToSuicide]] in the ending. Or at least [[spoiler:[[AttemptedSuicide attempts it]]; we never see if he's successful]].
* "The Battle For Freedom" in ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyXII''. When [[{{Leitmotif}} the brass fanfare of the Resistance theme]] drowns out the Imperial motif, it's hard not to stand up and cheer for the heroism at display.

* ''WorldOfWarcraft: The Burning Crusade'' featured [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bFSKZEgstCM The Black Temple]], a place corrupted by Illidan Stormrage that served as a raid instance. The upcoming ''Warlords of Draenor'' features the original non-corrupted Temple of Karabor as an Alliance base, complete with [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Vtoqg-a2xzQ its own music]]. Notable in that these two expansions' release dates are approximately 7 years apart.

* ''WesternAnimation/TheNightmareBeforeChristmas'' has a Triumphant Reprise of "This Is Halloween" when Jack returns after his troubled stint as Santa Claus. The lyrics are changed to "Jack is Back!," but the tune is still alike. The very end of the finale has a reprise of "Sally's Song" in which Jack finally reciprocates Sally's feelings.
