* From the first game:
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3lB0b0fHbAY Violent Storm,]] which is played [[spoiler:when you fight against Malpercio.]]
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=p-9MPcs1RXU The True Mirror]], the default battle theme, is an amazingly good song. Then the BossRemix takes it to [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wtMDOIEyu0E the next level]].
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0jjrl5oYwgM Rumbling of the Earth.]]
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OXUnMr1yX2w Brave Way.]]
** And [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qDoBcqdPx-Y Vitrolic a Stroke]]. A fantastic guitar piece, topped only by the aforementioned True Mirror guitar version. Very much worth a listen.
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JIAnkWRfJDE Between The Winds]] is hauntingly beautiful, ''and it's only overworld music''.
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hWbhB1iMjB0 Castle in the Sand]], which plays on the Mira overworld and in Azha. It's terrifying, but it's ''epic'' terrifying.
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XARPxxfAeUc To the End of the Journey of Glittering Stars]] is quite possibly one of the most beautiful pieces of music ever written. ''Ever.''
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Heb8iFf_Sww Soft Labyrinth]], played on the Cloud Passage on Diadem. For one of the easiest areas of the game, it has one of the most powerful and awesome songs in the whole game.
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4dFB8ns-r-c Bellflower]], an awesomely catchy town theme.
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=L3BWiI8v33w Nadir's Whale]].
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ADJFW_syFro Twisted Time and Warped Sky]], which has a definite apocalyptic feel to it.
** Giacomo and company tend to be [[ThatOneBoss unusually tough]], but their special boss theme, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_B64f48ewdo Chaotic Dance]] is great.
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eK5cRPzYa2w Supreme Ruler of the Nine Heavens.]]
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LkWtmUp-yEY Descent to Earth]], played when [[spoiler:the islands fall from the sky]].
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LShnlDfam84 Glowing Cloud]], while it gets used ''a lot'', isn't bad.
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3Wv7K2thAjU Embark on a Voyage]].
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=E_8kKRMKjpk Deep Sea of Tears]], used during the game's biggest TearJerker.
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xyXIN_A8vOQ Soul Poetry]], IMO, is a hauntingly beautiful piece. Also, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qn8nO1z9XQM Divine White Bell]], which not only is the main theme of the church, but also plays at crucial moments in the game, particularly [[spoiler:Kalas' FaceHeelTurn.]]
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1c2hN0YCqls Condemnation of Darkness.]]
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZQw7xD7C2fY Survival From the Force]], which plays in Cor Hydrae.
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=A3vUe3b4o_M A Last Villainous Quip]]. [[spoiler: [[PostFinalBoss Geldoblame]]]] might be a GiantSpaceFleaFromNowhere, but his battle theme is ''great''.
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=n0EWL7WJZJU Addressing Stars]], the beautiful credits theme.
* ''BatenKaitos Origins'', meanwhile, has [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sKPxXRbYl6s Iconoclasm]]. It's such an amazing track that every boss battle that plays it seems epic...''[[HopelessBossFight even the ones where you're getting your ass kicked]]''.
** Also from ''Origins'', [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WvUXGH8Qwds Le Ali Del Principio]]. Words don't do it justice; just listen to it. The music alone is incredible, but the hauntingly beautiful vocals make the piece almost impossibly wonderful...especially considering the fact that the vocalist was ''the composer's nine-year old daughter''.
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=i6Ho2qCCXr0 Evidential Material]], everything you need in a boss theme.
** Remember The True Mirror? [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0CFCUimZ1WE Well, it's back]], fully orchestrated for a mindblowing CallBack.
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PUZEFnvggmA Deep Red Pastures]], the happiest song in the world.
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SQ8FyzjcxWY A Road to the Dignified Future]], Verus' theme.
** For your listening pleasure, "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oC2SDdMEGLE The Valedictory Elegy]]", ''Origins''' standard battle theme. And then there's [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XRNCUdThacI the guitar version]] for battles in the Colosseum.
** There's also [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vDO7r2kYlnM Powerful Voice of an Old Soul]], played in the first half of TheVeryDefinitelyFinalDungeon, and [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LrR_0bQ9Pgc Terrible Technology]], played in the second half. And [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LyREUhcJbBA Tears of Compassion]], which was a large part of the reason that game's biggest TearJerker was so successful.
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WbqSFEtZtDE The Power of a Pure Heart and the Path to the Distant Future]]. Used for a ThemeMusicPowerUp several times throughout ''Origins''.
*** In that same vein, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xcYe9l9-QvM Bitter Enemies In The Same Boat]], which is somehow even better.
** There's also [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=x_Lygkb2lCk Poacher]], used for boss battles against afterlings, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YtSkgzGzMFQ Raincloud]], used for the Cloud Passage in Diadem, and the brilliantly creepy [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JRj5FpVO-NY Ruins]].
** Count in also the unbelievably tragic [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=E3AzDyrgyYQ Rain on a Moonlit Night.]] ManlyTears were shed.
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wVwmR8J_y-Y Crystal Abyss]]. Used as Wiseman's battle theme, it's ''even more creepy than he is''. Seriously, this could be used in Franchise/SilentHill.
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XX-_-lH6YwA Ruinous Commander]], the FinalBoss theme, is a very eerie song, complete with OneWomanWail and OminousLatinChanting. It really serves to accentuate what will happen if you fail.
*** Even scarier, if you listen to the quieter portions of the song, you can hear people screaming and crying.
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ToRbdS3J1HY Into The Spiral Tention]]. Amazingly creepy whenever it's used, and perfectly sums up the atmosphere during [[WhamEpisode Wham Episodes]] and tense moments.
** And [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bgXf4Kvj-p4 Chaotic Dance 2]]. Giacomo returns in Origins, with a new battle theme every bit as awesome as the old one, if not even more so.
** Remember Between the Winds from the first game? Didn't think it could get any more beautiful? Here's its successor, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NIvriKH-ynQ The Boundary Between the Wind and the Earth]].
** The [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VT6FIUgDZ08 three]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LMXXoaPgx0o Sedna]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=C0XgTuffmTE themes]]. Need motivation to do that giant CollectionSidequest? There you go.
** Guillo's theme, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=94hw44lkiRw Legendary Doll]].
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4G2bwCTNCAY The Beginning Of The Unjust Journey and the Prelude To Betrayal]] [[LongTitle (whew)]], a DarkReprise of the Mintaka theme from ''Eternal Wings'', plays during TheStinger.
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kZIHqhL2vxA Floating Pebbles]], which plays in the Nekkar Quietlands, is a beautifully melancholy piece. Why is it that the most irritating levels in this game always seem to have the best music?
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=T6mKj-IGkNc The Shadow of the Moon on the Water]], which plays over the end credits and is stunningly beautiful.
* The entirety of both games are a pair of crowning soundtracks of awesome. Even the worst songs are simply above average, and if a song is even average compared to the rest of the soundtrack, it still sounds amazing compared to other games. There's a reason the soundtracks are collectively considered {{Motoi Sakuraba}}'s best work.
