[[folder:Character Themes]]
* First things first. Ragna's theme, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dpdrQNeeypA Rebellion]]. It just ''screams'' tough, rebellious and angry anti-hero.
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sSFWb9PciIE The Live version]], which incorporates elements from Sol Badguy's theme "Keep Yourself Alive".
** The [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=L_vsutSlyJs LA Vocal Version]] of "Rebellion".
** Without further ado, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PdnyyD8e-z8 Rebellion II]], starting off with Ragna's newest mission to stop Terumi and being rough as ever.
** The [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cgrFZZ_1gxk BlazBlue Alter Memory OST Version]] of Rebellion.
** And then there's [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XGpa7xIfPT8 Black Onslaught]], his boss theme. THIS is how [[DeathMetal death]][[{{Grindcore}} grind]] should be done.
** The [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-oqc3C4qLTM LA Vocal Version]] of "Black Onslaught", which makes the lyrics easier to understand.
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u1OlXHEL8Io Black Onslaught II]], which ditches the deathgrind and goes more for a rock opera feel. Suffice to say, it worked.
* Jin's theme, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=StjxfSnwiVg Lust SIN]]. This has cold cruelty infused with elements of grace and serenity.
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Bgvfwi4xLrA Live version.]]
** And the [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Bbe-rKfq5wE L.A. version.]]
** Jin's epic theme got even more epic with [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=emhyxpfrGDs Lust Sin II]]. The soothing sound of the violins befit Jin's character development, and how far he's come since his NOL days.
** The [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZTJZAEJsG7s BlazBlue Alter Memory OST version]].
* Noel's theme, [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rTyrmJcsA4w Bullet Dance]].
** If that wasn't enough, here's the vocal version, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1mUQNe-aUOo Love So Blue]].
** And if that's still not enough, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d6RVWd5oiow Love so Blue with English vocals, performed by Christina V. herself.]] (This is unofficial, though.)
** And if even that's still not enough, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NiEsQ35XdUg Live version.]]
** Our little shy gunslinging murakumo unit heroine gets a badass remix, along with her epic as hell newfound confidence in herself in [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Gel2m5Qc3kA Bullet Dance II]].
** The [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GsSJQm-hQAk BlazBlue Alter Memory OST version]] of "Bullet Dance".
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rJR8V8XZ1o8 Queen of Rose]], Rachel's theme. A great way to set the theme for a graceful, know-it-all, but fierce Goth Loli Vampire like her. Transylvanian fun ahoy.
** And how could her song possibly get any better? Simple: Add vocals from Creator/KanaUeda's dreamy voice. Here's [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uAUseaCF-OQ Shinku no Bokansha/Scarlet Onlooker]].
** The [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=S-QEczoMUuw BlazBlue Alter Memory OST version]] of Queen of Rose.
** And now as of Chronophantasma we have [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=76kPKqpBV_M Queen of Rose II]], both elegant and booming with a guitar. Fitting for someone who is deadly while maintaining a calm demeanor at all times.
* Not as hardcore as the previous ones, but still pretty cute and cool, Taokaka's theme, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2xF3Pd_NVPg Catus Carnival]].
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yvj-RmKvemA Catus Carnival II]] brings in more of a hoe down vibe, while still maintaining the original's fun side.
** The [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JLmSVXkqvUk BlazBlue Alter Memory OST version]] of "Catus Carnival".
* Tager's theme, [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oR7QWkpVT2A MOTOR HEAD]].
** The mere ''thought'' that his theme could possibly get any more awesome is simply [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WlIjrlKIVqg Ludacris]]. Warning: this may be a serious SugarWiki/{{Funny Moment|s}}.
** [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UPyDTWOkI0w MOTOR HEAD II]], which is now heavier with its instruments.
* Litchi's theme, [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=49sI7zRF4cM Oriental Flower]], is a vibrant and even downright funky theme that's a blend of elegance, style and heroism befitting of an ass-kicking, kindhearted doctor of Orient Town. It is said to have taken samples from {{VideoGame/Guilty Gear}}'s Jam's theme, [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bkUtTnBESr8 Babel Nose]], ''another'' awesome theme for another awesome AnimeChineseGirl.
** The vocal version, [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yEzskCjUa4A Hana to Nare/Flower Blossoms]], is sung by Litchi's seiyuu, Chiaki Takahashi. The song explains Litchi's origins in ''Franchise/BlazBlue'', a "goddess" from the Far East with long, familiar black hair come to rebuild a "poor town" as her passion and spirit will ''never'' die, being a sad but determined flower that'll never wilt, looking to heal the one that got away. It's such an ''excellent'' display of Litchi's strong hope and a reflection of how unbreakable her optimism is even in the darkest of times.
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JUR7K4fP5o8 Oriental Flower II]] is a lot more aggressive, and has several wicked guitar solos and an eerie opening, reflecting how much more [[DarkerAndEdgier serious]] Litchi's situation and turmoil have become, [[ForcedIntoEvil being forced to work with villains she detests]]. But the original rhythm still persists, as proof that she hasn't completely lost herself and is going quite strong no matter how grim the situation may be. Go, Litchi!
* Arakune's theme, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NJsNB2zDGiA Thin RED Line]]. It really captures just how insane and twisted he is, combining metal with disjointed piano pieces, violins that switch between [[ScareChord shrieking]] and [[PlayingTheHeartStrings weeping,]] synthesisers and, [[ArsonMurderandJaywalking oddly enough,]] flutes. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OWFF6hSRy10 Thin RED Line II]] has organs and guitar riffs that make it sound like something by Motoi Sakuraba.
* Bang's theme, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Xa5c1qR18pg REPPUU (Gale)]], is the perfect theme song for manly hero of love and justice.
** And the vocal version, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=A6L_WbYGQ1I REPPUU ~Second Wind~]], based off a vid from Nico Nico Douga. '''WARNING: This song is so manly, it's been known to make women pregnant. Exercise extreme caution!''' Just when you got it couldn't get any manlier, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xMDCAKlug1A the Live version]] was released. Bang's seiyuu nearly lost his voice singing it, but pressed onward for great justice and finished it. '''Manly'''.
** '''[[EarWorm BANG]] [[Music/JAMProject BANG]] [[MemeticMutation BANG]]''' '''''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8iDXDB5DmbQ BAAAAANG!!!]]''''' As if there's any doubt that Bang is awesome, he gets his own ThemeMusicPowerUp, which is both awesome and [[SugarWiki/FunnyMoments absolutely ridiculous]], called "Omae no Tettsui ni Kugi wo Ute!"/"Beat a Nail with Your Hammer!". Unfortunately, the song has been cut as of ''Chronophantasma''. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XIFweAFtrEY The Live version of "Tettsui ni Kugi wo Ute!"]] which, although not performed by Kageyama and instead by Bang's VA, is not even an ounce less badass and manly.
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kIQWuHA5bzQ REPPU II]]. Now sounding even more heroic than before.
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mbyq9f3FRN4 Bang!Bang!Bigbang! -Seigi Joutou! Hero Toujou!-]] Ladies and gentlemen, Bang's new Furinkazan theme. Warning: [[TestosteronePoisoning Might cause spontaneous chest hair growth. Yes, even if you're a woman]].
* Carl's theme, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bCN5-BiHb7s Marionette Purple]]. Smooth jazz ''and'' shredding. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DchaXcd3298 Marionette Purple II]] has less jazz but more anger, fitting now that Carl's at open war with his father.
* Hakumen's theme, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QJkv4G57W_8 SUSANOOH]]. Bad. Ass.
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cgkh_G_DLwg SUSANOOH II]] upgrades the Japanese instruments while still maintaining the guitar, making it [[UpToEleven even more badass.]]
** The [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fEG2zox-44M LA Vocal Version]].
** The [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oh243tHuGXU BlazBlue Alter Memory OST version]].
* ν-No.13- and λ-No.11-'s theme, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AYsm9Z5C7IM Awakening The Chaos]], is good for making anything at all into something epic.
** Now with even more epic [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ekvjmC7Mml4 live version]], which was the perfect encore to an already amazing concert.
** The [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XBfkUlGFO4s LA Vocal Version]] of "Awakening The Chaos".
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RvzSiy7JmJw Awakening The Chaos II]] adds a child choir to increase the awesomeness even more.
** The [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bzthCnLhUzc BlazBlue Alter Memory version]] of "Awakening the Chaos".
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jhArsCBByKM Condemnation Wings]], Tsubaki's theme. Considered by many to be the love child of [[VideoGame/GuiltyGear "Keep the Flag Flying"]] and a ''VideoGame/FireEmblem'' song.
** The vocal version, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uF3phi2gVKs Cry Camellia...]] which was ''very'' well received by the fans.
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=H8FbUMg62og Condemnation Wings II]]. More unfocused than it was, perhaps referencing what's come over Tsubaki.
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nUYM0ky_Bvg The Live version]], which sounds more ''VideoGame/GuiltyGear'' styled, and exceeds expectations. Although it is not the vocal version, it is considered superior to the original in all aspects.
* Hazama's theme, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bG6K1SjIRrE Gluttony Fang]]. Critically acclaimed as "sex in music form", it's '''the''' theme song for a sleazy trolling {{Jerkass}}.
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=n4hS99v3nEk GGxBB Music Live 2011 version]], [[UpToEleven now sexier than sex]].
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Lk1qatJy3w8 Endless Despair]], Unlimited Hazama's theme. A theme that conveys, quite perfectly, the message that you are now fighting the evil [[BigBad main villain]], he is using his true power, and he is going to kick your ass.
** The [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=E6D1L-CqDhI LA Vocal Version]] of "Gluttony Fang".
** The [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=muc1ruu-EDg LA Vocal Version]] of "Endless Despair".
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=km_DuVR6tsQ Gluttony Fang II]], which [[SerialEscalation transcends the very limits and boundaries of sex itself, redefining it for a new generation]].
** [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7-E8owCe_mw Endless Despair II]], which is now doubles as both Unlimited Hazama's and Terumi's theme song. Even without the horrific imposing intro, this is a song still fit for a madman who wants you outright '''dead''' at any cost.
** The [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XYnOm5W_dEk BlazBlue Alter Memory version]] of "Gluttony Fang".
* The console version gives us a new character: μ-No.12-. She's the TrueFinalBoss of Story Mode, so she has to have an epic theme, right? And she does: [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=a1H54zwjywI Sword of Doom]]. A theme with lyrics describing a sword of sin, stained with blood and death, falling into the azure. And if you thought the song couldn't be made even more awesome, here comes [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cImGOR5CGs8 Sword of Doom II]], which ditches the ominous chanting of the original and instead sounds more heroic. [[FanNickname "Sword of Salvation"]] jokes abound.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8ZxRfT0uITY Alexandrite]], Makoto's theme, is very fitting: spunky, upbeat, and leaves a very big [[{{IncrediblyLamePun}} impact]] indeed.
** Here's [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lG3UfZEhmuM Butterfly Sky]], the vocal version of Alexandrite. Becomes a [[SugarWiki/HeartwarmingMoments heartwarmer]] if you know what the lyrics mean. Check out Makoto's entry under Heartwarming/BlazBlue for more info.
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gzPePDGtFbI Alexandrite II]] with a new music box-style opening that slowly builds into the classic active squirrel girl theme we all know, and a heroic ending, complete with trumpets and guitar solos, that almost represents Makoto's elevation from side character to a main heroine.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZQHVu8DSKDw Howling Moon]], Valkenhayn's theme. ''[[SerialEscalation Awesome, even by Blazblue standards]]'', it cements Valkenhayn as a [[CulturedBadass sophisticated]] [[OurWerewolvesAreDifferent werewolf]] [[BattleButler butler]]. [[Franchise/StreetFighter Keep it classy.]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qVfp6XnFwAc Howling Moon II]] still fits as a decent song for the former Hero even if it no longer begins with an organ piece.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UiRaKpuNc44 Active Angel]], Platinum's theme. [[MagicalGirl Definitely]] [[TastesLikeDiabetes Platinum's]] [[RefugeInAudacity theme.]]
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xHbDq0RyYu4 Active Angel II]] carries on the trend with a peppy, overly happy style.
** The [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1j8wrAQ7W4s LA Vocal version]]. [[TastesLikeDiabetes More diabetes, please?]]
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=I86O9K_s4fw Plastic Night]], Relius' theme. It gives a boss-like feel while sounding evil and gentlemanly at the same time. Not only that, it has one of the sweetest riffs in the ''series''. They're seriously beautiful. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uqMLxErdhfI Plastic Night II]] now features an ominous intro and a badass piano.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DwBz-KgirCU BUSIN]], Amane's theme. The use of Japanese instruments definitely gives it a classic feel. But don't let the soothing intro fool you: when the guitar riffs start to kick in, you'll realize that Amane means business.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_gXLdyqEKkc Spirit of Fire]], Bullet's theme. A perky, rowdy theme for a tough, HotBlooded mercenary like her. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZJByftH7ke4 REVENGER]], the Vocal Version, performed by Toa Yukinari, is just as awesome. Add some lyrics to that rowdy theme and you'll be surprised how beautiful Toa's singing voice is.
* [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4qK8iCySte0 The Tyrant]], Azrael's theme. As if his name wasn't enough already, the song title and the rather chaotic sound of the song itself really bring the fact home that he's not someone to mess with. [[MemeticMutation It also sounds like something out of]] ''Franchise/{{Pokemon}}''. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZfXVUV17pCk GO in SOUL]] adds in extremely Engrish-y and hammy lyrics from Azrael's seiyu himself, Creator/HirokiYasumoto.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-Jqx0KQFYpQ Justice Sword]], Izayoi's theme. An imposing, badass theme for a weapon intent on bestowing order on all. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2vR3T5r47vQ recta ratio]], the Vocal Version, features Creator/AsamiImai once again.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1swTZbNEJr4 Black aggression]], Kagura's theme. A badass orchestra that gives off ''Franchise/PiratesOfTheCaribbean'' vibes.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=grF717fy79w Science Fiction]], Kokonoe's theme. A catchy techno beat for our MadScientist.
* In ''Chronophantasma 2.0'', Terumi finally gets his own BGM. Ladies and gentlemen, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jJJhqjWt7YU Silent Scream]]: a perfect blend of insanity and power with an epic intro provided by a badass orchestra that descends into madness as guitars kick in with a kickass organ solo serving as the bridge between verses.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F99FbVf3zWU Crystal Forest]], Celica's theme, which compliments her mysterious air and pivotal role in the story. It represents Celica with the piano and violin, while representing Nirvana as the drums and guitar.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SuQjb4nQe40 in the shadows]], Hibiki's theme. A fast-paced, jazzy piece which brings forth an air of professionalism and dignity. [[spoiler: However, it also has a chaotic, almost dual-toned sound to it. There is a distortion in the lead guitar which indicates that something is off with Hibiki, and in the middle portion, it completely descends into full-on dissonant riffing, highlighting his hidden insanity.]]
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0UreOvO2z4Y Jaeger]]. Naoto's theme. Pure, ''VideoGame/GuiltyGear'' style riffing from beginning to end, symbolic of Naoto not being of the central ''Franchise/BlazBlue'' World. Bonus points for its backline being based off of Rebellion, symbolizing how Naoto is an AU counterpart of Ragna.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_WpfjIXiVAY Walpurgisnacht]], Nine's theme. A fiery tune which hearkens back to Daisuke's earlier ''Guilty Gear'' works, in particular ''March of the Wicked King''. It gives a sense of Nine's hot temper, but soon sinks into very evil-sounding solos which showcase the former heroine's fall into darkness and insanity. The bridge notably evokes a sense of nostalgia and happier times...but quickly descends into even further madness.
* [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=a2pN_fyKotg YOMOTSUHIRASAKA]], Izanami's theme. A befitting theme of the Imperator Librarius. Powerful, fast-paced drums, OminousLatinChanting, and emotion-filled guitars and orchestra that bring ''VideoGame/{{Undertale}}'' and ''VideoGame/DarkSouls'' to mind, and the horrific screams of the dead heard at the beginning evoke the feeling of an epic final boss battle. The theme of Unlimited Izanami in the console version, [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wPbkYMewzbQ THE WORLD END]], starts off slower but is much more foreboding before the guitar kicks in, signifying that Izanami has finally decided to stop holding back and show you why she's feared as [[spoiler: the Goddess of Death]]. The song also starts slowly getting more upbeat at this point, possibly representing her opponent's HeroicResolve. That may very well be kicking in if the fighting against her is going on long enough to reach that point in the song.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SbwTIFyHIOo conciliation]], Es's theme. What this theme lacks in a guitar, it makes up for in spades with fast-paced drums and techno sounds accompanied by a rocking-hard bass and chimes that, like with Naoto, is symbolic of Es being from a different continuity in the ''Franchise/BlazBlue'' saga. This theme is also notable for being the only theme in ''Franchise/BlazBlue'' history to NOT be composed by Creator/DaisukeIshiwatari. Instead, it's composed by Kikuo, the main composer for ''[[VideoGame/XBlazeCodeEmbryo XBlaze]]''.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Af6JRDhNBiw MUST DIE]], Susanoo's theme. If you ever thought this franchise's soundtrack could get any more meme-worthy songs, you thought wrong. It's pure, Guilty Gear-style metal with traditional Japanese instruments and what can only be described as "kabuki theater scream-o enka". The vocals combine MetalScream with [[LargeHam overly-theatrical]] rapping, complete with massively {{Narm}}-laden, edgy {{Engrish}} lyrics, and it is '''godlike'''. And then there's his boss theme, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VrPEQb0TgR8 HAKAISHIN.]] The song's name translates to "God of Destruction", a fitting name for a DestroyerDeity who's only desire is to bring ruin to the world. Not only does this song mark the climax of the most bitter feud in the series, but it also doubles as the Final Boss theme of the '''entire series''' while also having the honor of being the [[EpicRocking longest song]] made by Creator/DaisukeIshiwatari, clocking in at '''7 minutes, 17 seconds'''.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=C5jfW1qRvUk VARIABLE HEART]], Mai's theme. A rocking electric guitar piece that's fast-paced and upbeat from beginning to end, fitting for the protagonist of ''Remix Heart'' who finally gets her chance to shine on the battlefield alongside her friends Noel, Makoto, and Tsubaki. Bonus points for sounding like something out of a ''Sonic'' game.
* [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HZBw-9VFIjg STAND UNRIVALED]], Jubei's theme. At long last, the Goddamn Catman finally makes his grand entrance to the series' playable roster in style with a powerful Japanese anthem.

[[folder:VS. Themes]]
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Lf0Q3RmyFaw Under Heaven Destruction]], played for Ragna vs. Jin matches. Madness and rage collide!
** The [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_8vGhos-b8g LA Vocal Version]] of "Under Heaven Destruction".
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4BveOWt7zao Under Heaven Destruction II]], which adds a larger sense of duality to the song when you imagine Ragna represented by the chaotic, pounding guitar, and Jin represented by the elegant, yet crazed violin. And to top it all off, the ending has been regarded as so beautiful it has actually moved people to tears.
** The [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iB2ZHT7bFxw BlazBlue Alter Memory Version]] of "Under Heaven Destruction".
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4i1UfqXpvUc Imperial Code]] played for Jin vs. Noel matches. It also serves as the theme of the NOL. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cSIOG8CbAa8 Imperial Code II]] takes the original's sense of hostility and turns it into full-blown insanity.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3TyhDmrnaO0 White Requiem]], played for Ragna vs. Rachel matches. A brilliant mix of elegance and chaos. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=an6r7hmsEL0 White Requiem II]] sounds more chaotic and hectic than the original, while still keeping the sense of elegance that comes from it.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7eBK11j7or0 Weak Executioner]], played for Litchi vs. Arakune matches. It really conveys the tragedy of these two characters.
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CSyv0uUpgxw LA Vocal Version]] of "Weak Executioner", which puts the tragic tale of the two into lyrics.
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=stOS9MzQMFY Weak Executioner II]] remains faithful to the original, while adding some intro and outro sections that bring ''VideoGame/FZero'' to mind.
* [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KGy5uyuYgBg Nightmare Fiction]], played for Ragna vs. Hazama matches. Perfect for two monsters tearing at each other. One [[TragicMonster sympathetic]], the other... not so much. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fssDMCYtoc8 Nightmare Fiction II]] somehow manages to keep the menacing feel of the original while sounding significantly calmer and more grandiose.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cdCwCcMznxo Memory of Tears]], played for Noel vs. Tsubaki matches.
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Rr__51WWHvs Don't Look Back]], the vocal version.
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9XUh_q9fUmY Memory of Tears II]] completely forgoes the original's tragic feel and instead opts for a more chaotic tone, reflecting Tsubaki's deteriorating mental state.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TnIsiNfegY0 Blood Pain]], played for {{Mirror Match}}es. As of Chrono Phantasma this actually plays during a story battle between Jin and Hakumen. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LW72ZmmqGkA Blood Pain II]] completely overhauls the original, giving it a new intro and middle section which almost compels one to fight.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ed0902QcjKs Childish killer]], the vocal version of the new Jin vs. Tsubaki theme. The instrumental version is called [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Rpdz-UUWSAc Cross Line]]. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EUkZtOv8yNk Childish killer II]] makes it sound even more like a Nightwish song, and now better reflects Jin and Tsubaki's current predicament.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fGB8c7_m6f8 X-matic (Crossmatic)]], the Carl vs. Relius theme. A song that perfectly captures the tragic history of the Clover family, as well as having a string-instrument motif ([[DontExplainTheJoke because they're both puppeteers]]). [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=S_xI946H3Hs X-matic II]] switches the melancholic melody to a one which makes it sound like Carl is finally ready to kill his father.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gdoqVCeSXkU SIX-HEROES]], which plays when... [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin members of the Six Heroes (Hakumen, Hazama/Terumi, Valkenhayn, Platinum)]] fight each other. Truly badass and gives off an intimidating aura which reflects the power of each and everyone of them. In ''Central Fiction'', Nine and Jubei get added to the list, although for story purposes Hazama and Platinum don't have this theme play for them anymore.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=h4Z0guHUmwY Black & White]], the new theme song for Ragna VS. Hakumen matches. While the theme probably should have been around since the first game, it's better late than never and a true testament to theme of OrderVersusChaos in the series.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=c3IakB2yIfA Sector7]], the theme song for matches among members (Kokonoe, Tager, Makoto, Azrael, Lambda, Celica and, as of Centralfiction, Bullet) of said organisation. A song that befits the mysterious organisation with a mix of techno beats to reflect their technological superiority.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IYgouZIb_5w Dissonance]], the badass theme song for Valkenhayn VS. Relius matches. Not only does it rock hard enough for ''VideoGame/GuiltyGear'' but it fits perfectly as the theme for the [[WeUsedToBeFriends Immortal Breakers]], reflecting not just their opposing goals and ideologies but the gap between their past and present selves.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qveqiaSfsMc in JUSTICE]] for Hakumen VS. Izayoi matches. Truly a clash of ideals and Justice.
* [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2EMyaDbsFvU Reincarnation]] for Kokonoe & Celica vs. Nine. A somber, but somewhat hopeful tune for a BigScrewedUpFamily. It has a very ''VideoGame/{{Doom}}''-esque feeling to it, mixed in with a bit of ''VideoGame/DarkSouls''. The techno portions represent Kokonoe, the lighter guitar riffs and flutes represent Celica, and the heavier guitar riffs and OneWomanWail represent Nine.
* [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gF0o3rV53Mw Bloodline]] for Ragna & Jin vs. Izanami. An epic song that switches between the evil orchestra representing Izanami and the EpicRocking representing her brothers, showcasing that this is the decisive battle, but with a very tragic air to it befitting the fact that these siblings are at odds with one another, and only one of them can leave alive.
* [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3SPrXp0YPJs END GAZER]], for Es vs. Nine and Celica. Better known as the opening theme of ''[=XBlaze=]: Lost Memories''.
* [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RqWggIxwBTY God of War]][[spoiler:, for Hakumen vs. Susanoo. A fitting war anthem for the epic clash between White and Black Susano'o.]]

* From [[Anime/BlazBlueAlterMemory the anime]], we have [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Z91Ydzg2alI BLUE BLAZE]] by Faylan, and [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Jtpb7Ks6Pag Reincarnation Blue]] by Aira Yuuki.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yExskyeixos Open the Gate]]. This theme completely reminds you why the cauldron is called the Sheol Gate. AKA the ABYSS gate.
* Here's the Arcade version's intro music-- [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5KcdCKfwsFM Calamity Trigger]].
* For the console version's opening? [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LG-5GcpnLAE Ao -iconoclast-]] by KOTOKO. As expected, kick ass it does. Crazily enough, it kicks about as much if not more when it teams up with the [[Film/SpaceJam Quad City]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z4s_Nltytjg DJs]].
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_2YkxYV7_PI Altar]]. And this is just the ''menu theme''.
* The menu theme for Chronophantasma, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=K48H27seP3I White Nights]].
* After a year of waiting, here's [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NIEK24uCO0c Continuum Shift]], the sequel's opening theme. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SRoD1X4E56I The Live version]].
* [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3DoxSUNlQHI Blue Beating]], the suitably badass player selection music. ''Please select your character...'' [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kZTedl2k8Xs Proof of the Warrior]] of ''Chronophantasma'' is no slouch either. Neither is the [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AkEFbUjZUOc Character Select theme]] for ''Central Fiction''.
* Both [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9DscHVikq_E vocal]] and [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4KCXx-DdA_g instrumental]] versions of Hekira no Sora e Izanaedo, the console opening from ''Continuum Shift''. And thanks to Quad City [=DJs=], [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qc7udCVksDI Hekira no Slam e Izanaedo]].
* ''Continuum Shift 2'' gives us a brand new opening theme called [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_vfQS64S9aQ "Shinsou"]], or "Deep Blue". It also replaces "Hekira" as the Astral music in the portable versions of ''Continuum Shift 2'' as well as ''EXTEND''. It's so awesome that it got to return as a battle BGM in ''Central Fiction'', as the [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OV0Jg1H8GpA full version]] to boot.
* The intro to ''Continuum Shift EXTEND'', "Sōkyū no Hikari" by Faylan - [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=E3WfZQyi8xI Full song]] and [[http://youtu.be/6v7hpgobcxI the edited version used as the opening theme]].
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9vMcUm1fda8 Chronophantasma]], the latest opening.
** The console version's opening, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DBwX8qVozgk Blue Sanction]], courtesy of Faylan once again.
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mmVv7RE26rw CHRONORISE]], BBCP Ver. 2.0's arcade opening.
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6RwMVaug31A BLUE desire]], the console opening for BBCP Extend.
* Ladies and gentlemen, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gs6S_Q_Yz6g CENTRALFICTION]]. An opening truly befitting the series' GrandFinale. And it got a [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MhFTGvZddyo remix]] for BBCF Ver. 2.0, with a new beginning and extending a few notes in an epic fashion, while leaving the original song intact.
* [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=s8hrX7g4yW8 TRUE-BLUE]], Central Fiction's console theme from KOTOKO.
* The story mode tracks includes: [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lbPbnxlH_OA Stardust Memory]], [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cQGRjO9fveE Bright]], [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7lqZSylBGKY Curse]], [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gABZ5DM8hvc Uprising]], [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6fnRmD23eJA Front Line]], [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=STmnuf8Xt-Q Cloudy]], [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gGnEPvVuBbs Mirage]], [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q7dThxPo_24 Hollow]], [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kn9hDwtb6QU Raise]], [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RhAAjzGoB6Y RIOT]], [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VCJ0iM_gJSA pinky promise]], [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XcZg0iVV9UI Comedy]], [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oQHi75aFlf4 Premonition]], [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tlAn92DGPQ8 splash]], [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-hbNZmhYXMY RUN]], [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Tn21s-r4zcw re:stung]], [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SuHQQRM7zlY Lakeside]], [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tPuzz-C_sGI Breeze]], [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EdFU-2JVgO0 Audience]], [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TEiXJj6v4VI MarsMars]] and [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1H-MFzw1P50 Misletoe]].
** And then there's [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pFLwq1Wrvag Flos]], THE theme song to good times.
** "Stardust Memory" eventually got a vocal version, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zg6wQU1QrKQ "Stardust memory ~The Promised Place~"]], sung by Creator/KanakoKondo. The [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ki1M0fI3OEQ live version of "Stardust memory ~The Promised Place~"]] turns the lullaby into a ballad.
** [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ive9fauKdz0 Stardust memory ~Days of Eternity~]], a brand-new vocal version of the song released on a vocal album. It is now selectable as a song in ''Central Fiction''.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HVn4JK2yiQc Pandora Tears]], another epic song by Creator/KanakoKondo.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=R4J9UWRA0P8 Fatal Judge]], the BBCP Arcade Boss theme. Just right for the ultimate culmination of any given character's arcade story. In the story, this is used as the theme for Kagura vs. Azrael. [[spoiler:It also returns in BBCF's story mode when Ragna and Terumi have their final duel to the death.]]
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Oyv5mfwzq-o THE HIGHLANDER]], which plays during the battle against [[spoiler:Take-Mikazuchi]] and works wonders for telling you that you're up against a gigantic, horrific monstrosity, the very same one that obliterated Ibukido and Kagutsuchi back when time loops were still a thing, and lets you know that this will be ''hell.''
* Last, but certainly not least, the credits themes:
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=McBhiv9OBTY The road to hope]], ''Calamity Trigger''[='=]s Arcade Staff Roll A.
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=t7wUUGDdbP0 Limited Again]], ''Calamity Trigger''[='=]s Arcade Staff Roll B.
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0IAhVo9Nldc Rubble Song]], which also has an [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=L4MMhsZOaWQ LA Vocal Version]] and a [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=twcs57MNQfg live version]].
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JjHShp2fqfc DIMENSION SHIFT]], ''Continuum Shift''[='=]s Console Staff Roll. Now has [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Wo5ogg6w92I a version]] sung by Rachel's VA Creator/KanaUeda.
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_XVCCoFZhZQ blue-bloom]], and the instrumental version [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_pb6SU6XFrE spiral.]]
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nq_yhhgya78 RISING]], the ''Chronophantasma'' Arcade Mode Staff Roll.
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sSErO0g6PdU Drive Qualia - Words of the Past and Future]], the ''Chronophantasma'' Console Version Staff Roll.
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fmEvqcUqBh0 BBCP 2.0's credits theme]], another remix of Stardust Memory which gives a feeling that a major turning point has just occurred, and the end of the story is near, much like the end of ''Chronophantasma'''s story.
** [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IiOkL5Qd8Uo Twilight tear]] Central Fiction's credits theme, has a very dark, chilling, and tragic feel to it. Someone is definitely not going to get a happy ending...
** [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=E4b_ZGhNpbs KUROKI]], meaning blackbeast, usually plays when Ragna is kicking ass or about to kick some ass in the main story.
And did we mention that we just listed the whole soundtrack?
