!!''VideoGame/KingdomHearts''
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zJGcoz6YWIM "Forze del Male"]] and [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RQ43d2uQAhc "Guardando nel Buio"]], Ansem's battle themes.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=x4_Twt55v-A "Scherzo Di Notte"]], the battle theme for Hollow Bastion. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-UZgW6aszI0 The world's theme itself]] is also awesome.
* Kairi has three theme songs and of the three, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zTQr6O1R1P4 "Kairi III"]] is just... beautiful. Like music from heaven in its purest form... It's nostalgic, sad, and heartwarming.
** Kairi's other themes, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qs2kZYVciQo "Kairi I"]] and [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1osS16a8-Cw "Kairi II"]] are just as beautiful as well.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CZVAvHah9io The Orchestrated Version of "Hikari"]], which turns the game's theme song into a goosebump-inducing orchestral piece.
** Speaking of, we have Utada Hikaru's lovely end theme, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kOSNIIx5u_U "Hikari"]], and its English version, [[http://grooveshark.com/#!/s/Simple+And+Clean/2T6fB2?src=5 "Simple and Clean"]].
** The [=PLANITb=] Remixes of [[http://grooveshark.com/#!/s/-/4MHMc2?src=5 "Hikari"]] and [[http://grooveshark.com/#!/s/Simple+And+Clean+PLANITb+Remix+Short+Edit/2T6gkr?src=5 "Simple and Clean"]] take the aforementioned songs and remix them into a different kind of awesome.
** And then there's the [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3dbmECnxdo8 version]] that plays during an emotionally dramatic scene in Hollow Bastion.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g25QXnhVijQ "Dearly Beloved"]], which is most certainly the real theme song of the series. The kind of music that takes all your worries away.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gbeHo6c_a8o "Destati"]] and its variation [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gOpB12ow-VM "Dive into the Heart -Destati-"]], one of the first songs heard in the game.
** The music for [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=trf9g-ZpDF4 "End of the World"]] is another mix of "Destati", complete with chimes, strings, and vague chanting in the background...or just vocalizations. There's a bit of vibraphone in there too. The effect is both beautiful and nightmare-inducing.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=k28_pULtlAQ "Fragments of Sorrow"]] is another take on the aforementioned "Destati", with its [[OminousLatinChanting Ominous Italian Chanting]].
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Prb-4_Si_1U "No Time To Think"]], the music playing when Hook is making Sora walk the plank. It sets the heart-racing mood of the scene very well.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5kWUmdxJfvE "Villains of a Sort"]], Maleficent's Theme for the series.
* For recurring boss themes, there's [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HFtX_HfUWdA "Squirming Evil"]] (which plays during most Disney villain boss fights), [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2VJ3Jc6H3Jg "Destiny's Force"]] (which plays during a variety of boss fights), and [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bdmA6HDonks "Shrouding Dark Cloud"]] (which plays during most of the early Heartless boss fights and [[VideoGame/FinalFantasyVII Cloud]]).
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TsoVi4U1P68 "Precious Stars In The Sky"]]. It's just... Disney magic embodied in music.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=69YakPKHMvs "One Winged Angel"]], remixed from its original ''Final Fantasy VII'' version, is as awesome as ever (even if it is shortened).
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=H1AJjZEWBcI "A Night on Bald Mountain"]], playing during the [[Disney/{{Fantasia}} Chernabog fight]], is one heck of a hardcore classical piece.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=c2PzuG0Cf6w "Beyond The Door"]], which plays during Ansem's death scene.
* The tear-jerkingly beautiful [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Lp_X-Im1On4 "Always on My Mind"]], which combines Kairi's Theme and "Dearly Beloved".
* The amazingly '''epic''' credits theme, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SmRgNtHTbWM "March Caprice for Piano and Orchestra"]], which features yet another variation of "Dearly Beloved".
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PVDavId-9IU "Another Side"]]. Plays in the Final Mix secret ending trailer, and it spawned "Organization XIII", "Graceful Assassin", and "Showdown at Hollow Bastion". A remix of the whole track was used in ''358/2 Days'', and the actual track was used in Aqua's battle against [[spoiler: Braig]] in ''Birth By Sleep.''
* The adventurous [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Hdg2djGp138 "Deep Jungle"]] theme that plays in Tarzan's world.
* The many uses of classic Disney music during the game, including [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HFe86smOMCg "Under the Sea"]] during the ''Disney/LittleMermaid'' sequence, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nc1YgQXuP0E "This is Halloween"]] in [[TheNightmareBeforeChristmas Halloween Town]], [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-DLNoapdv88 "Winnie the Pooh"]] in the Hundred Acre Woods, and the [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=waDIghoikX4 "Mickey Mouse Club March"]] when we first visit Disney Castle.
* If you think that the [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ID3URxEg9WE first theme]] and [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tfXsHIOlamE second theme]] songs of Gummi Ship are light and happy, wait until you try to enter the End of the World with your Gummi Ship. The [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=noCYWL2zA_0 third theme]] will blow you away.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=swxgikJ5Wk0 "Hand in Hand"]], the Traverse Town battle theme which also plays over the after-credits ending scene.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HU1-HXmTVSk "The Deep End"]], which plays during major boss fights such as Giant Ursula, Dragon Maleficent, and the first round against Ansem.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AzitdFZvOjA "Disappeared"]], the suitably creepy boss music to the Unknown in the first FM, [[spoiler:which pops up again in KHII as Xemnas's first boss battle theme.]]
* The [[http://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLhcSrKyqhfh62PULzXnybRJVhBZSbEYVe rerecorded soundtrack]] is nothing short of amazing. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2rPYGN1SOro Here]] is an example.

!!''VideoGame/KingdomHeartsChainOfMemories'' (and ''[=Re:CoM=]'')
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-dGA1NlqWmo "Memories in Pieces"]], the opening theme which has bits from "Hand in Hand", a chilling version of "Scent of Silence", Naminé's beautiful theme, and then the ominously awesome [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=li9qTVVk1AA "Castle Oblivion"]].
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gZqGtE524KU "Naminé's Theme"]]. Much like Kairi's Theme, it's so beautiful. It also uses something similar to [[Franchise/FinalFantasy "Prelude"]] as a background tune.
* The ''Re:Chain of Memories'' version of [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kA_uAlS6XgU "Sinister Sundown"]], for your daily dose of great fight music. And it's a good thing it's so good, because you hear its Kingdom Hearts II incarnation a ''lot'' in ''Days...''
* Marluxia has no shortage of awesome battle themes, from the epic final theme [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jJxTxP-Hu-4 "Lord of the Castle"]], to the magnificent [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z_V3So7hRVY "Graceful Assassin"]] (which is taken from "Another Side") and [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pQx9NBUqn0k "Scythe of Petals"]].
** "Lord of the Castle" has been orchestrated for the HD re-release. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JyaWwq4CfTk And it is awesome]].
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wL5DJc6fSPA "Forgotten Challenge"]], especially the Game Boy Advance version. It's actually a pretty good use of the Game Boy Advance sound technology.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6XXHbsG4JIM "Thirteenth Discretion"]], a creepy piece accompanying many of the scenes with Organization XIII.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qR9AcOdbuTA The original "13th Struggle"]], used for the battles against Organization XIII members. Also doubles as epic {{Foreshadowing}} due to its similarities to [[spoiler:Forze del Male]].
* And, with that being said, the original original [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Zt1KcUyke0g "13th Struggle"]].
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vvLy9PrbiQ0 "The 13th Floor"]], which is one of the most eerie overworld themes there is.
* Its version of [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Oe5WV17WyLs "Dearly Beloved"]] is also quite sweet.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JFsu6Pn05lc "Night]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9i20td5SH7k of Fate",]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wB0AlGnkE2A full stop.]] This song is the battle theme of Destiny Islands and acts as a musical accompaniment for Sora's sadness, confusion, and drive against the Heartless until he comes to understand himself and his power....on the night when all this happened, no less. Creative name.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OjAdnP7xu-g "The Fight For My Friends"]], the Disney boss theme, is the best Disney boss theme in the series.

!!''VideoGame/KingdomHeartsII''
* As good as [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gUQuBBBzx-I "Dearly Beloved"]] was in the original, Shimomura just turned it into an utter masterpiece for the second game.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lHeo3NmxsVo Kairi's Theme]] is just as beautiful as its Kingdom Hearts version.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v9DDGibV9yU Roxas's Theme]], due to its context at the end of the ProlongedPrologue:
--> '''Roxas:''' "Sora, you're lucky. Looks like my summer vacation is...over..."
* In the same vein as "Hikari" above, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kWoJLdXJt0E "Passion"]] was also [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xbpUerj7fwU orchestrated]]... and in doing so was turned from a fairly good J-Pop song to an awesome mood-setting piece.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=H7AA0S9UKjg "The Other Promise"]], a remix of Roxas's Theme only heard in the Final Mix version of the game.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oEgjc7a2Jx0 "Fate of the Unknown"]], which plays during the extended secret ending in the Final Mix. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_VDFjkeC34k "Sunset Horizons"]], the wonderfully ominous song that plays during the original secret ending serves as its precursor.
** You think the [=KH2=]:FM+ version of "Fate of the Unknown" is epic? [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q_NXh8-u308 Try this orchestral version]].
* Running down the Ravine Trail to avenge a boulder-beaned Goofy to [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HyT3B6tMQ7Y "Vim and Vigor"]] is also epic. When combined with the pairing-up with Final Fantasy characters, it becomes an all-around Crowning ''X'' of Awesome.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vWENHKGtXLY "Hazardous Highway"]], a rockin' piece of Gummi Ship music. The two levels that feature it were already reminiscent of [[Franchise/SonicTheHedgehog Sonic games]], but the music clinches it.
* The other Gummi Ship songs, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dakZDOOcng0 "Asteroid Attack"]], [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NqzwSdcVsK4 "Cloudchasers"]], and [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_XdgTCLSc9w "Floating in Bliss".]] They sound like something straight out of Disney World.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1YXsCyvbpC4 "Sinister Shadows"]], which is so beautifully perfect and epic during the Grim Reaper Fight and the 1000 Heartless battle.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jKQbV0PgQu8 "The Afternoon Streets"]], which plays while controlling Sora in Twilight Town.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RON7G_oYwkw "A Twinkle in the Sky"]], the world selection theme, is simply magical.
* The Gummi Ship themes are all surprisingly peaceful or upbeat, and the levels are kind of goofy, really. Well... all of them but the ''StarWars''-ish last one, with dreadnoughts of [[DoomyDoomsOfDoom doom]] blasting the hell out of you, and its epic theme called [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hY10ZFjbJ8Y "Battleship Bravery".]]
* You want a kickass battle theme? Try [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hZO1yinBXq4 "The Encounter"]]! The best part is that it plays mostly during Disney villain boss fights, so you get a good background song for your CatharsisFactor.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yawQEQM81co "The Corrupted"]], a suitably epic tune for the ColossusClimb boss Groundshaker.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QpAAi900QT8 "A Fight to the Death"]], which accompanies the first phase of the final battle. Perhaps the only track that could possibly match the awesomeness of [[RefugeInAudacity cutting skyscrapers in half while you soar through the nothingness towards an armored Xemnas sitting on his throne atop the giant dragon airship.]]
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=M1K08YFqF98 "Darkness of the Unknown"]], which plays during the multiple phases of the fight against Xemnas.
* The credits music, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QkmWYjxvels "Fantasia Alla Marcia"]], which contains amazing renditions of "Dearly Beloved", "Sora", and most especially "Destati" back to back with "Another Side" at 3:00.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QscpOLaF5sM "Rowdy Rumble"]] is yet another boss theme. This one plays primarily for the QuirkyMinibossSquad characters, like [[WesternAnimation/TheNightmareBeforeChristmas Lock, Shock, and Barrel]], [[Disney/TheLionKing the hyenas]], and Pete. It was deemed good enough to appear again in both ''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LjR5QHYlPEQ 358/2 Days]]'' and ''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zJO5Px44e8E Birth By Sleep]]''.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IZfMFyrJ2kA "Sora's Theme"]]. Sure, it sounds all light and airy, because Sora's so happy all the time, but underneath it you can hear this steady, driving beat. Not only does it remind you of a heart, but it also shows his sheer determination to find his friends and generally win. It sends shivers down the spine.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NrXeLVy-nDI "Working Together"]]. It has such a happy beat to be a battle song, instead making you feel like you want to dance.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=O8cd_0eUVAM "Showdown at Hollow Bastion"]], the theme that plays right before the 1000 Heartless battle.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v4eN6y6_bTg "Sacred Moon"]], the melancholy theme for The World That Never Was. There's a reason why some keep running around The World That Never Was besides the plot.
* The ''KHII'' arrangement of [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gRA8h9qojWs "He's a Pirate"]], remixed from its original ''PiratesOfTheCaribbean'' form into a battle theme.
* The VillainSong [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xNf9L3paA50 "Ursula's Revenge"]], which many consider to be the one tolerable part of the Atlantica world.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XQFHv4GOwlM "Tension Rising"]], which is the kind of music you think of when you are just DESTROYING Nobodies while in Final Form.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iIy85KLfOVU "Riku's Theme"]], which is very dramatic and just lovely.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mk_uKQ9ACyE "The Home of Dragons"]], the theme of the [[{{Disney/Mulan}} Land of Dragons]], is pretty kickass.
* The main theme from the [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fCHFEp1u10s Pride Lands]] world. Makes you want to go on an adventure, doesn't it?
* Final Mix also has [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZjZ91Nbd8FU "The 13th Reflection"]], [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=b6zxn2xy9VY "Rage Awakened"]], and [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8Ezt5ihBagY "Cavern of Remembrance"]].
* This game's version of [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z_P7DD44aMY "Arabian Dream"]] (Agrabah battle) is exciting.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ETwoZ7ta4OA "The 13th Struggle" (KHII Version)]]. Also known as Axel's Theme.
* And the new Organization XIII boss theme for ''KHII'' called [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3YlA-g5YIqQ "The 13th Dilemma"]] is really epic.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qodhFU4q_OM "Desire For All That Is Lost"]]. It even makes up for Phil's endless repeating of [[MostAnnoyingSound "GET UP ON THE HYDRA'S BACK!"]]

!!''[[VideoGame/KingdomHearts358DaysOver2 Kingdom Hearts 358/2 Days]]''
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HIv_dEa_vrM "Xion's Theme"]] (also known as "Musique pour la tristesse de Xion", literally "Music for the sadness of Xion") ''definitely'' counts, containing a melancholy variation on Kairi's theme that is quite fitting for the character.
** And here's the [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UCH8O7kOSaY 1.5 HD Remix version]], which cranks the theme's awesomenes UpToEleven.
** Someone actually decided to cover this song. And by cover, it's actually complete with original lyrics and some pretty good singers to boot. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=U5aGEMqca4M Here you go!]]
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GbGVnbKEu2M The mix of "Another Side"]] used for the DoomedByCanon final boss battle that was first shown in the track's original appearance in the Final Mix version of ''Kingdom Hearts''.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IIz1erKdcUg "Vector to the Heavens"]], [[spoiler:Xion's final battle theme which is a remix of her character theme]]. The [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ttZ7WKNroYE 1.5 HD Remix]] version makes it even better.
* The ''358/2 Days'' [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3E-xPwnzdKQ version]] of a dearly beloved song. Shimomura must really like playing with this one to see how much more awesome she can make it.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cyCNXueijXo "Secret of Neverland"]] and [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gFX1wZ1TUFg Crossing to Neverland]], Neverland's themes in this game which are completely redone from the Neverland music in the previous games. It's a shame they didn't use it in ''Birth By Sleep''.
* Then there's [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gt5D-1IaryQ "Critical Drive"]], one of the final battle themes in the game. While the [=KH2=] version, "Deep Drive", was all right, the ''358/2 Days'' version really brings out Roxas's and the player's drive to beat the mission.
* The ''Kingdom Hearts 358/2 Days'' "Sacred Moon" remix named [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HaJ_Yb1GFlo "Mystic Moon"]], heard as Roxas escapes the castle. While neither truly original, nor action packed, it communicates tension, fear, and uncertainty in Roxas' leaving of the Organization.
* The opening song, [[http://grooveshark.com/#!/s/Sanctuary/3WCOf4?src=5 "Sanctuary"]]. While it made its first appearance in ''Kingdom Hearts II'', the lyrics really fit with the Nobodies, especially Roxas.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ScGJEi11mx8 "Fight and Away"]] is a fantastic remix of the two boss themes, Struggle Away and Fight for my Friends, from ''Chain of Memories'' and makes any fight ten times more epic.
* The very melancholic yet beautiful [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=n38Cc0AcFBk "Missing You"]], debuts in ''Kingdom Hearts II'' but fits the theme and sadness in ''Days'' much better.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eYyvhZI4k04 "At Dusk, I Will Think of You..."]] a sweet theme for the times Roxas, Xion, and Axel spend at the clock tower.

!!''VideoGame/KingdomHeartsBirthBySleep''
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JDBUJL55lPY "Black Powder"]], which first plays when you fight Braig the first time, and then during the first form of [[spoiler:Master Xehanort]].
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z7uohBpxDbQ Ventus' Theme]], first heard during the game's trailers. It's a somber mix of Roxas' and Sora's Themes.
* The best version of [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WOJ6bzveAlE "Dearly Beloved"]] yet.
* The winner for the most unexpected piece of music to ever come out of the Kingdom Hearts series: [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jmRrLj63AFk "A Date With Fate"]], a bouncy remix of "Succession (Theme of CrisisCore)" that plays during scenes with Zack.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X9RVU83H_JI "Unbreakable Chains"]], the theme for the last battle with [[spoiler:Vanitas]], is ''sweet.'' [[ThemeSongReveal Listen closely for hints of certain other characters' theme songs]].
** Any music relating to [[spoiler: Vanitas]] can be crowned as pure, uncensored awesome. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IqRWHGQatcw "Enter the Darkness"]] (Normal Battle), and [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Inm9TUFVDy8 "Enter the Void"]] (Secret Boss) too.
*** The Remnant's music is even awesome [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eigYrE2MvZE backwards]].
* The Unversed Boss music, particularly [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-OORkixXUSs "Unforgettable"]], is fun, as well as giving huge hints [[spoiler: that the Unversed come from Vanitas]] due to the similarity of the themes.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=S2lxCUlMi3o "Dismiss"]], the FinalBoss theme, takes the already awesome "Fragments of Sorrow", mixes it with [[spoiler: Terra's theme]], and turns the whole thing UpToEleven, bringing out both a feeling of foreshadowing and tragedy as [[spoiler: Aqua has to defeat her possessed former friend]].
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=U7iXaXU0I2k "Makaukau"]], the Deep Space battle music. It's pretty much '''hardcore techno'''.
* These two remixes of [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WvRxeElDH7g "Scherzo Di Notte"]] and [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PLVX8VbBvgw "Radiant Garden"]], which take the already great original songs and adds a touch of grandiosity fitting for ''BirthBySleep''[='s=] version of the world. And it's even more awesome when you realize this is a song of Radiant Garden [[spoiler:a.k.a. Hollow Bastion]] in its glory [[spoiler:before Xehanort ruined it and Maleficent took it over]].
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6o1SaZvv7wI "Aqua's Theme"]] and [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GU8N64BAzTg "Destiny's Union"]], both of which are associated with Aqua and especially befit her character.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yPatwqWh8pk "The Tumbling"]], otherwise known as the Wheel Master battle. Fans were rearranging and remixing this track almost immediately after it was revealed in an early gameplay trailer.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zuztTg-3k4o "Rage Awakened -The Origin-"]]. For all the awesomeness from ''[=KHII=]'', it's even better here. It has a sense of urgency that fits the tone of the fight that ''[=KHII=]'' didn't have. The song makes that scene.
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=c3CA6L_YjHE "Terra's Theme"]] isn't bad either and befit Terra's resolve and will. It is also similar to "Rage Awakened" [[spoiler: since both songs are affiliated with Terra, either as himself or as the Lingering Sentiment/Will]].
* Seeing as the game's new BonusBoss, The Mysterious Figure, is [[CrazyAwesome awesome enough as it is]], it's no surprise [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kNpUgUQBLbE his theme, "Dark Impetus"]], is ''easily'' one of the best in the game.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Z4MQqrL0x4Q "The Silent Forest"]], Enchanted Dominion's theme, is beautifully haunting.
** Considering that ''Disney/SleepingBeauty'' had a soundtrack entirely comprising classical music, it's no surprise that the world based on it has fittingly great music. Having said that, listen to [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=At9ttd4RxXk "The Rustling Forest"]], the battle theme of Enchanted Dominion, and try not to go deaf from how awesome it is.
* Impossible as it may seem, the Ice Cream Beat mini-game actually managed to come up with a version of [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1Vkj7x4gCRQ "It's A Small World"]] that's not only not-cringe-inducing, but actually pretty good! (it helps that the thing that makes the original so ear-grating--the singing--is absent).
* From the game's Final Mix we have [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nRgxnhbAZc8 "Master, Tell Me The Truth"]], the battle theme for [[spoiler: The Armor of The Master, Master Eraqus' Sentiment]], which incorporates some of the Land of Departure's battle theme.
* Also from the Final Mix, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Tlp2MgUxvhI "Forze dell'Oscurita"]], which is the battle theme of [[spoiler: No Heart, Master Xehanort's Sentiment]]. It epically combines [[spoiler: "Forze del Male" with "Darkness of the Unknown"]] for music of sheer power.
** Another one from the Final Mix is [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MyWMEMkmMEQ "Hunter of the Dark"]] from the Secret Episode.
* The beautiful, almost-holy-sounding [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9x3QPs2ZWwE "The Key of Light"]], and its chilling DarkReprise [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EbcnWWpqFrM "The Key of Darkness"]]. Which is ''again'' remixed into [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qyHeUtacaNc "The Key"]], [[spoiler: Aqua's (and Mickey's)]] final boss theme against [[spoiler:Vanitas-possessed Ventus and his completed χ-Blade]].
* The version of [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UM0ouoHjUAA "The Encounter"]] used in ''Birth By Sleep'' may be superior to the original! [[spoiler:And it gets used in an awesome way in 3D when it plays during the [[RunawayBrain Julius]] BonusBoss fight]].
* The haunting [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mVINeir1TDk "Sunset Horizons"]] that plays in [[spoiler:the Keyblade Graveyard]] really gets across the tragedy of what has and will transpire in that place. It doesn't matter that you just spent 30-40ish hours playing as these characters. THEY. WILL. LOSE.
** Interestingly, it has some of Aqua's Theme laced into it, [[spoiler: hinting that she is the only one to truly survive the encounter with Xehanort and Vanitas here]].
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EAVBjpqBOOY "Eternal Moments"]], an extraordinary remake of ''358/2''[='=]s "At Dusk, I Will Think of You" that plays when Ventus gets to first meet [[spoiler:Lea and Isa in Radiant Garden]].

!!''[[VideoGame/KingdomHeartsCoded Kingdom Hearts re:coded]]''
* This game's version of [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pB0vyk1miNw "Dearly Beloved"]] is very good as well.
* With [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kw0zIY7saf0 "No More Bugs!!"]], the System Area battle theme, and its [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CxTgVta8_kI bug version]], CrazyAwesome-ness kicks in with the form of techno battle themes.
* The system sector search music, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZMPWnKAZ9Dg "On The Debug!!"]], which provides sufficient pump-up for what's ahead.
* The new version of [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VmfAMkNqPM8 "Forgotten Challenge"]], the Castle Oblivion battle theme from ''Chain of Memories.''

!!''[[VideoGame/KingdomHearts3D Kingdom Hearts 3D: Dream Drop Distance]]''
* All three of the game's remixes from ''VideoGame/TheWorldEndsWithYou'': [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=C_cJrbCYk9c "Twister"]], [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QJbszmEqI1E "Calling"]], and [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=J5oQP6mVcjM "Someday"]].
* As the tradition goes, a new and amazing version of [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=M_iJ-z2zt9E Dearly Beloved]] just as beautiful as all the others. Especially when it's played [[spoiler: when Sora and Riku save Mickey in Symphony of Sorcery]].
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=L1G3pqNJh2U Xigbar's own leitmotif, debuting in this game.]] It's the Organization XIII theme, only with a faster rhythm - a waltz, to be correct - and a creepy violin theme playing underneath. This is meant to invoke an unpleasant effect[[note]]the same effect as, for example, [[TheLegendOfZeldaMajorasMask The Third Day in Clock Town]][[/note]]; and while it'd be spoileriffic to say why, this theme fits Xigbar [[spoiler: and Braig]] perfectly, [[spoiler: summing up his prominent role in the formation of the rest of the Organization]].
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u709KVNV2xM Link to All]] is very upbeat theme that very well emphasizes Sora's ability to link so many hearts.
* As usual, the game features several awesome remixes of "Destati", including the [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rgEGYgYfDls two]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3krHHAx0loY themes]] of [[spoiler:Ansem]], the [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UTVlQ_0_Pls last Dive]] into [[spoiler:Sora's heart]], and the [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ajn9SjkYGnI theme of the final battle]] with [[spoiler:Armored Ventus Nightmare]].
** For added awesome, the final battle theme is orchestrated in a style reminiscent of [[spoiler:Vanitas]]'s battle theme.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JuoSdyNB85k Sora's theme]] gets a remake that still keeps on rolling.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PifJfnBz9uE Shimomura still knows how to make great credit music.]]
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=snOiD1P4OqQ "Distant From You"]] has a sad and nostalgic theme to it. [[spoiler: Perfectly suiting the scene it plays in: Meeting Xion and Namine.]]
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jMRpLgtUCh4 "Broken Reality"]] starts cheery, but slowly descends into a song that personifies a very childish madness.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HacdoXd6jqo Traverse Town's new theme, "Traverse In Trance"]], sounds really sweet and relaxed. Even more than the original.
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0tKe3HZfwcQ "Hand To Hand"]], its battle theme, is a really sweet remix of Hand In Hand!
* While it may not be a Disney-related song, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=55TD1NXVX5Q "La Cloche"]] and [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ed-9ySvBE5E "Le Sanctuaire"]] are very ominous and suiting of [[Disney/HunchbackOfNotreDame one of the darkest Disney movies]].
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BD69bZcVz5k "Sweet Spirits"]] is sugary elevator music.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=08JMpDiHJ_0 "Majestic Wings"]] is pretty awesome.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8AVJ17V93Zw "Even After"]] is a brighter "Distant From You".
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lGqRgHWW65Y "Rinzler Recompiled"]]. Pure essence of EPIC.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BzFykKvUNyQ "UNTAMABLE"]], the most recurring Dream Eater boss themes, gives off a fun fair vibe, inviting you to enjoy the fight, while being fairly epic! This is in contrast to a good part of the other KH boss themes which are usually ominous and foreboding, while being epic.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=s5EqmkXhs-E Ice-Hot Lobster]], like many Dream Eater boss themes, invites you to just enjoy the fight and have fun!
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WlQTwzFjBwc Gigabyte Mantis]] gives a techno feel to the usual Dream Eater music, and works you up to excitement as you battle the boss!
* While [[spoiler:Chernabog]] kept [[spoiler:"Night On Bald Mountain"]] as his boss theme in the international and Final Mix of Kingdom Hearts, Some argue that the version used is pretty much inferior to the original. Thankfully, 3D [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AvMZPyWEHKw remade it into something much more awesome to listen too]], and it makes the fight ten times more epic!
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6ODAH1gBqyE "All For One"]], Country of the Musketeers' battle theme, is very energetic and cheery. The playful and peppy runs are what really sell the piece.
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UVZ1wUAWhbU "One For All"]], its field theme, is similarly energetic and cheery, but in a way more fitting of running around and exploring, rather than battling.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UHOrW6sUKDQ "L'Impeto Oscuro"]], a truly epic remix of Dark Impetus.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gt4SJJ2kOAk "L'Oscurita dell'Ignoto"]] is a truly amazing rearrangement of Darkness of the Unknown. The violin gives off a very ominous, urgent vibe which really suits the fact that it plays during the fight [[spoiler:that shatters Sora's heart.]]
* There's also [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rgEGYgYfDls "L'Eminenza Oscura"]], the new battle theme of Ansem, Seeker of Darkness. Interestingly, it's what's ''missing'' from the song that makes it creepier than previous remixes. It starts off much like the first game's final boss theme, but then [[spoiler: shifts into part of "Dismiss", the song from Aqua's fight with Terranort. Except ''[[FridgeHorror Terra's Theme is missing from this part of the song]]''.]] There is also the [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=m6ma4nDi58A second part]] of the song which plays during Ansem's second phase. With extra emphasis on the "Dismiss" part of the song.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lpqxSW1zF9A "The Nightmare"]] and [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=peIwhfDEH5g "The Dream"]]. When the former comes up, you know that something bad is going to happen, and the latter is a soothing playful melody that calms your soul.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=soxMLnboQzY "Sacred Distance"]], the haunting theme of [[spoiler:The World That Never Was]].
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YvSf5HHhfH4 "Prankster's Party"]] is very energetic, and becomes just beautiful once the violin kicks in.
* Deep Drive's remix, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wcUdAMEBDtM "Deep Drop"]].
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1BhEQJqHKCg Xehanort the "Early Years"]], aka [[spoiler: Young Xehanort's Theme]]. It sounds like a mix of [[KingdomHeartsBirthBySleep Xehanort's Theme]] and [[CourageTheCowardlyDog Katz motif]].
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9PpyZKOtbDg "Shaded Truths"]], one of the suspense themes.
* The normal fantasy party-like Dive theme [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3ou1qBXtp-Q "Storm Diver"]], and the boss Dive theme [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YxaPhpdHRqU "Wild Blue"]].

!!''Kingdom Hearts χ [chi]''
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RXk1Z_znB6Q "Dearly Beloved"]], as always, is lovely. This time taking on an adorable music boxy sound, to go with the adorable look of the game.

!!''Drammatica'' and ''Memória!''
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lOTgSBG_Mp0 "Destati"]] got worked over, adding much more brass and giving a much more epic feel, making the original, once one of the greatest songs in the series, seem meek in comparison.
** Bonus points for its use in the [[VideoGame/KingdomHearts3D Dream Drop Distance]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IbuM89wfZeQ trai]] [[http://youtu.be/RhvNgouXG4k lers]].
** It's "Fragments of Sorrow" '''[[PunctuatedForEmphasis UP.]] [[CrowningMusicOfAwesome TO.]] [[UpToEleven ELEVEN!!]]'''
* The theme associated with Roxas, the Other Promise, also gained its own [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nDn_vblmQlU orchestral version]]. Most of the song is spent building up, but the final climax brings both chills to the spine and a tear to the eye.
* There's also [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hKEbxbUVS9E "Twinkle Twinkle Holidays"]], an orchestration of the theme used in Christmas Town. While not epic in the same way as the others listed here, it is still worth mentioning.
* What takes the cake, though, is the masterpiece known as [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tGNccio7Jo4 "The 13th Anthology"]]. Yoko Shimomura took every single track within the games that had used Another Side's central theme (and The Encounter), and worked them together into one goosebump-inducing song.
* Yoko Shimomura's second compilation album, ''Memória!'', has a new arrangement of "Vector to the Heavens", Xion's theme. The [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IxN901ZyiPw 1:30 preview]] needs to be heard.

!! ''Piano Collections Kingdom Hearts'' and ''Piano Collections Kingdom Hearts Field & Battle''
* For ''Piano Collections'', [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JKkpVA9Fvak "2nd Mov.: Kairi - Andante Sostenuo"]] and [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fd59t-84cKE "3rd Mov. Riku: - Scherzo e Intermezzo"]]. This is arguably the loveliest Kairi's Theme has been (and that's saying something), and Riku's Theme is just drenched with awesomeness.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SkRIAKX6fds "1st Mov.: Sora - Allegro Con Brio"]], which turns the already great theme into an upbeat piano piece. There's even a surprise from 1:35-1:45.
* And for ''Field & Battle'', [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Qvd9RtRXSdk "Musique pour la Tristesse de Xion"]] made it possible that Xion's Theme could be even ''more'' bittersweet.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZC2JmK_9FvE "Medley of Conflict"]], which combines several battle themes into one epic piano piece.
* The [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZZX9sI5rlwA "Hollow Bastion"]] Theme works amazingly well as a piano piece.
* The [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ufGPPatMLU8 "Concert Paraphrase on Dearly Beloved"]], which is probably the greatest "Dearly Beloved" piano arrangement that exists. This version's epicness comes from the feeling of climbing stairs as you listen to it. With the simple, standard Dearly Beloved at the beginning of the album, this awesome piece bookends the album with a virtuoso presentation of a fairly simple melody.
* Then there's [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RpIzyuQqfZQ "The Other Promise"]] in its most emotional incarnation, for sure.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gOtlK3bhhoA "The 13th Side"]], which is an amazing piano medley of Organization XIII Themes.

!!''Fan Remixes''
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CCjAB_rb368 "Rising Sun", a rock remix of Hikari by CarboHydroM]] will get you pumped and ready to take down some Heartless/Nobodies/Unversed!
** MiyuIrino sang part of [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TotzronkNlU "Hikari"]] for the album of an anime he was in. A fan mixed his singing with the above-mentioned [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Hrk4PNpvXUI rock remix.]]
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UnJlFTe7nkg Marluxia's final battle theme]], "Lord of the Castle", can remixed to an epicness '''greater''' than in "Anthology", courtesy of bakuriu007. His remix of [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rpK3h6khT68 Xion's Theme]] is also wonderfully [[TearJerker tearjerking]]. [[http://www.bak-r.be/KHDestiny/KingdomHeartsDestiny.html Here's the site where you can hear the rest of the awesomeness.]]
* [[http://www.youtube.com/user/sasukeshika sasukeshika's rock remixes]] manage to take the epic of KH battle themes and take them UpToEleven. For example, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-sCfr5e0S-I Vanitas' Final Battle]] (Unbreakable Chains), [[spoiler: [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=66avd8n-fB4 Xion's Final Battle]]]] (Vector to the Heavens), [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tDrZ0ATTMYM Lord of the Castle]], and [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZQTFV8sVKzU Deep Anxiety]]. He has at least a dozen others, too!
* The [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bxbjMOsbLy8 Symphonic Fantasies Kingdom Hearts piece]]. Fifteen minutes of pure orchestrated gorgeousness with all of the major pieces from the games seamlessly strung together. My god.
* Blue.Nocturne provides Shimomura-like renditions of otherwise unused Disney songs with [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bKD5WN47DOU Colors of the Wind]], [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vDIStA5VWe4 Bells of Notre Dame]], and [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4H5zOJnxBHc Hellfire]].
* sephfire of OC [=ReMix=] remixed Hollow Bastion into this [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Kj6v2cmD8u4 awesome piece of work]]! Definitely worth a listen.
* Kyle Landry is a great pianist on his own, [[http://www.youtube.com/user/kylelandry/videos?query=Kingdom+Hearts but his KH stuff is the work of gods!]]
* Someone did a dual mix of [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4MmDnnM1fqw "Dark Impetus" and "L'Impeto Oscuro"]]. Being a dual mix of two fantastic boss themes already featured on this page, it is just as amazing as you think it is.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5LiAMEm8aFk "Kingdom Hearts: A Nobody's Tale"]]. An amazing remix of many of the works shown above, all into four minutes and thirty seconds of awesomeness. Epic beyond belief.
* Similarly, there's [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5UTGVk3ebSc "The Light of The Worlds"]], a fan-made FinalBoss theme that combines 15 pieces of AwesomeMusic from ''Franchise/KingdomHearts'' into a 7 minute suite.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tUILkzdGQhY Darkness of the Unknown--Piano Improvisation]] by Kiwii216 (who has done other ''Kingdom Hearts'' piano remixes) is a serene yet sharp interpretation of the original that manages to capture the style of ''Kingdom Hearts'' despite its differences.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/user/Nucl3arW3ss3l?feature=watch L i z z]] has written some very good fanmade lyrics to some character themes, including [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QbLMOAOoqvk Xion]] (which is a TearJerker), [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NSRucPLYvhY Roxas,]] and [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7Gzmba4F8CA Naminé]].
* Musician [[http://www.youtube.com/user/pellekofficial PelleK]] tried his hand at doing PowerMetal covers of both "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FSlflnBp6Tc Simple And Clean]]" and "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SdTgFgJSseA Passion]]", which have to be heard to be believed. He also tried his hand at composing his own original ThemeTune for ''VideoGame/KingdomHeartsIII'', which can be heard [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=txyqnhncnJ0 here]].
* Pick Dark Impetus and mix it with Dearly Beloved with some minor Hikari in the mix and what do you get? [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y2rmke01RFk Symphonic Storm's Mysterious Sleeper]]. It is just plain ''awesome''.
