* The North American version of ''VideoGame/SonicCD'' not only changes its theme song, but also changes the whole soundtrack! (Except the Past theme, which were played in PCM)
** Ever since late 2011, versions of Sonic CD with both the Japanese and American soundtrack became available worldwide.
* The English version of ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyXIII'' changes the Japanese theme, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tlgU9vMcq2k "Kimi ga Iru Kara"]], to [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d8qtteb9FBY&feature=player_embedded "My Hands"]], by Leona Lewis. This is [[JustifiedTrope justified]] because the dubbers weren't able to translate the whole song into English.
* ''VideoGame/SlyCooperAndTheThieviusRaccoonus'' has [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7DDkMobXylE "Black Jack"]] as its Japanese theme song.
* ''[[VideoGame/RType R-Type Final]]'' uses the Music/{{Blue Man Group}}'s "Piano Smasher" as the ending theme for the American version.
* ''Franchise/TalesSeries'':
** ''[[VideoGame/TalesOfDestiny Destiny]]'', ''[[VideoGame/TalesOfEternia Eternia]]'', ''[[VideoGame/TalesOfSymphonia Symphonia]]'' (and [[VideoGame/TalesOfSymphoniaDawnOfTheNewWorld sequel]]), ''[[VideoGame/TalesOfPhantasia Phantasia]]'' (GBA) and ''[[VideoGame/TalesOfLegendia Legendia]]'' all had its vocal theme songs replaced by original orchestral compositions. ''Symphonia'' (and sequel)'s and ''Legendia'''s compositions are special in that they were actually composed by series composer Motoi Sakuraba for the international release. ''Phantasia'' simply replaced the song with its overworld music.
** ''[[VideoGame/TalesOfTheAbyss Abyss]]'' and ''[[VideoGame/TalesOfTheWorld Tales of the World: Radiant Mythology]]'' used vocal-less versions of its original songs.
** ''[[VideoGame/TalesOfVesperia Vesperia]]'' and ''[[VideoGame/TalesOfGraces Graces]]'' are exceptions of sorts; they use English versions of their original songs, performed by its original artists.
** ''Finally'' averted completely with ''VideoGame/TalesOfXillia''.
* ''VideoGame/MegaMan8'' uses very different instrumental [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d6YaUefm4bw opening]] and [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-sZijF0_W8E closing]] themes in the English version. Compare to the original Japanese themes, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IVs0z-VNnFI "Electrical Communication"]] and [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XcRp7fEpN6A "Brand New Way"]].
* [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jeznORdAkGY "ROCK U"]] by Namie Amuro was used as the Japanese theme song of ''VideoGame/CallOfDutyBlackOps''.
* The Japanese version of ''CrashNitroKart'' has a different theme song. It can be found [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jdBijrvVphI here]].
** Several tracks in the original ''Crash Bandicoot'' were replaced entirely for the Japanese release of the game at the publisher's request (apparently because they didn't sound exciting enough).
* The Japanese version uses [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=A1uEUg05JWc "Phantom Minds"]] by Beat Crusaders to advertise VideoGame/LittleBigPlanet.
** [[http://www.jpopsuki.tv/video/Idoling%2521%2521%2521---Yarakai-Heart/1d4e683cad98e8bbf72ed14f546fca4c "Yarakai Heart"]] was the commercial theme song for the Japanese version of the second game.
* ''VideoGame/{{inFAMOUS 2}}'' uses [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8HHtjB4TfDE "Ichioku Bun No Ichi No Shousetsu"]] by Uverworld as the theme song.
