* GenreRoulette: Due to the band's nature[[note]] The really only have two consistent members, and most of their songs are written to fit into a video game, thus ensuring the sound is more dictated by the tone of the game than any actual inherent sound the band has. [[/note]], the only consistent genre you could label them as is Rock in general. They have played a wide variety of rock styles. This is fairly evident especially in games that feature more than one song of theirs. "Sonic Heroes" is a very upbeat and ''extremely'' poppy song, with elements of PopPunk, whereas "What I'm made of is much darker and heavier, and doesn't sound a million miles away from a slower Music/IronMaiden song. "I Am (All of Me)" is an aggressive early 2000's style AlternativeMetal song, where "Never Turn Back" is a more laid back,classic styled HardRock song. "Knight of the Wind" is sort of SymphonicRock influenced, with "Live Life" being somewhat of a ballad reprise of it, but the song "Through the Fire" is an edgy Metal song, and wouldn't sound out of place with Johnny's other band, Music/AxelRudiPell. The only consistent element throughout all their music is is that it's generally anthemic and melodic.



* HardRock: One of their more prominently featured sounds. "Watch Me Fly", "Revvin Up", "Dangerous Ground", "Live and Learn", "Fire Woman", and "Never Turn Back" are probably their straightest examples of this style



* MohsScaleOfRockAndMetalHardness: Usually about a five ("Live And Learn", "What I'm Made Of", "Open Your Heart"), sometimes a six ("His World", "Watch Me Fly") and higher on rare occasions ("I Am (All Of Me)" and "With Me (Massive Power Mix)") or lower ("Is It You", "Live Life")

* VillainSong: "With Me" is this for sure. "What I'm Made Of" could be this, but it depends on interpretation. "I Am (All of Me)" plays with this trope.

Their style has generally fallen under the MelodicRock umbrella, combining uplifting, self-empowering vocals with soaring rock riffs and intense solos. They often use elements of HardRock and HeavyMetal, and guitarist/songwriter Jun Senoue cites many famous rock bands of the 80's as big influences for the group's sound.
