This is false, as when attacking her, it plays Julius's theme.
* ''Franchise/FireEmblem: Genealogy of the Holy War'' has a song for fighting recruitible enemies- something that none of the other Fire Emblems have. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_dSi0JqA2zs It may be due to the fact that FE4's "Comrade Turned Enemy" is extremely cheery for the undertones that the song carries]]. And yes, it does play during the tragic boss fight with Julia on the final chapter.

* ''SystemShock2'' has mall background muzak and announcements contrasting heavily with the infected humans trying to bludgeon you to death and moaning "kill me". And that's without mentioning the speech of the chipper and polite droids that want nothing more than to help you in any way they can -- as long as it involves [[EverythingIsBetterWithExplosions accidentally detonating in your vicinity]].

* Before fighting Travis in an epic DuelToTheDeath in ''NoMoreHeroes'', [[LeftTheBackgroundMusicOn Dr. Peace sings a rousing karaoke song]] called "The Virgin Child Makes Her Wish." It sounds uplifting, but too uplifting to be sung before the start of a "two men go in, one comes out" kind of fight.

* ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyRecordKeeper'' has this during the Festive Fantasy event: the battle theme is the Chocobo theme--the same one that plays when you're picking the daily dungeon.

* Because the SegaGenesis version of ''{{Action 52}}'' reuses its music quite a bit, this happens every now and then. For example, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eHyH6-LVVbM#t=7m32s this]] was used in a racing game, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dCMooOb0GBM this]] ended up being used in a shooting gallery-type game and [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dCMooOb0GBM#t=5m45s this]] ended up being used for a game based on ''Jack and the Beanstalk''.

** ''Pop'n Music'' has any number of songs that contradict the series' light-hearted, cartoony tone; everything from death metal, to moody-sounding trance, to a "nightmare carosel" song, among others. Additionally, some of the characters do not fit their respective songs; a librarian for [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=N8DJIO9X498&fmt=18 Days]], a "smirking kid on a skateboard" (to quote a review on [=GameFAQs=]) for a classical medley song in ''Beat'n Groovy'', among other issues. Oh, and wanna know what song has a reputation as the [[ThatOneBoss hardest song in this series]]? [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AKxQRk1CwGI This song!]]

Yes, that "Flora" character is supposed to be a ''personified flower''.

** ''VideoGame/MetalGearSolidVThePhantomPain'', like the fourth installment, also has interactive soundtrack dissonance. Snake has a Walkman loaded with some 80's songs. Granted, there are a few rock songs that fit the war setting like "The Final Countdown" or "Rebel Yell", but then there are a few songs that are a bit too soft. Nothing says tactical espionage quite like sneaking into a base and killing the guards to the tune of Spandau Ballet's "True" or Hall & Oates' "Maneater".

* ''VideoGame/GrandTheftAutoII'': You'll find [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=swQULRb2oH4 this Christian pop song]] in what should be a dark cyberpunk future, coupled with lyrics that preach the exact opposite of what a player would normally be doing in a GTA game.

** Played for dramatic effect with [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hufv8MFlRdE the music for Naoto's dungeon]], a soft piano piece that doesn't fit infiltrating a highly-fortified secret base at all. [[spoiler: This is most likely to emphasise Naoto's hidden lonliness beneath her stoic facade.]]
