The ''AdvanceWars'' series is full of excellent, catchy music. Given how you'll be listening to a character's music everytime it's their turn, it's a good thing, too. Behold, the ability to download most of these right over [[http://advancewars.net/multimedia/soundtracks/awds/ here]] and [[http://advancewars.net/multimedia/soundtracks/aw2/ here.]]

Since the themes are done in a variety of styles, there's a good chance that one of the themes will be somebody's favorites. Especially for the first three ''AdvanceWars'' games. So let's list 'em all!

* Orange Star:
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7fJlmlXQOzw Andy's Anthem]] Surprisingly, Andy is the only one with an "anthem" instead of a theme.
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yvZd1YRmQE4 Max's Theme.]]
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=m2vjU-l6P-E Sami's Theme.]]
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XdSFKA4Xj_w Nell's Theme.]] It very much fits for tutorial levels (at least in the first game).
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2y_8Y0hJ4eY Jake's Theme.]] A very nice rock-style theme.
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xrs1Sl-HMnk Rachel's Theme.]]
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vKx0PV0nwUY Hachi's Theme.]]
* Blue Moon:
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PLVHtvBLgW0 Olaf's Theme.]] In contrast to Nell's, it's every bit a villain's theme (at least in the tutorial and the first few missions in the first game).
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uubRu5DnN1M Grit's Theme.]] A very laid back country tune, fitting the laid-back CO.
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0kYNNTZR2r8 Colin's Theme.]] Who knew that polka music could be so awesome!
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SraDJKWFKpk Sasha's Theme.]] A merry jingle that wouldn't sound out of place during Christmas.
* Yellow Comet:
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Kjbv1mqISdQ Kanbei's Theme.]] Styled in a theme sterotypical to his code.
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xswOB0i8Y9Y Sonja's Theme.]]
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wuO8EzVYciM Sensei's Theme.]] A hilarious trumpet/harpsicord example. What's also funny is that in many AW parodies (such as ''WebVideo/BobSquad'' and ''Black Hole's Fall''), this theme, and Colin's, tend to indicate something stupid/silly has happened.
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AXqMUYG8H8Q Grimm's Theme.]]
* Green Earth:
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Aj2s2l1C9qY Eagle's Theme.]]
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LQ3QDdBilgo Drake's Theme.]]
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=I-uVh_keeYU Jess' Theme.]] An light industrial-sounding beat fitting an armored vehicle specialist.
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ej92ph7VkBQ Javier's Theme.]]
* Black Hole:
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-TdEqjhBsIo Flak's Theme.]]
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OsfcPdN6j3Q Lash's Theme.]] A very techie tune.
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8mlSu6vheIA Adder's Theme.]]
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iaT_Ei66L9k Hawke's Theme.]] Just like [[KnightOfCerebus Hawke himself,]] this dread-filled tune lets you know that Hawke means business whenever you have to fight him.
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=en-7nzSphdk Sturm's Theme.]] Prefaced with a siren-like sound, as a warning that you're facing off with the real BigBad.
* Bolt Guard:
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VogCX-STNo4 Jugger's Theme.]]
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OMqEZ53w0ho Koal's Theme.]]
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9bnZhuRKFFE Kindle's Theme.]]
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sN0LAVvMKFk Von Bolt's Theme.]] Absolutely overblown and pompous, with the use of bagpipes to reinforce his evilness. Very fitting for a BigBad.
* But it's not just the themes that get attention in this game...
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Bky5upn5Ilo Black Hole Coming,]] from the first and second games. Despite being from the lighter incarnations of the series, is incredibly dark and foreboding. A fitting tune to hear when preparing for the last few levels in the game. You know you're playing by Black Hole's rules, and failure is not an option.
** The [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qTiwhI8TYrw Black Hole Rising ending music]] makes you think about all the memories you'll have from campaign, and all those virtual lives lost in freeing Macro Land from Black Hole's tyranny.
** The [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bgkBWlWtjBI Green Earth Theme]] really carries the sense of a long and drawn out conflict, making everyone weary, yet the battle is far from over.
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WySQjgQr3So Super Power]] and [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=78QCb-XLcJw Tag Power]] themes. When you hear them, it's [[ThemeMusicPowerUp time to ROCK!]]
*** Black hole's [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aDxNugjK0I8 Super Power]] and [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kn-v4QHyyBA Tag Power]] themes.
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=b6nGYaWhTkQ "It's a Trap!"]] from ''Dual Strike''. Black Hole mocks you and your attempts to stop it.

[[folder: Days Of Ruin/Dark Conflict ]]

* ''Days of Ruin'' had a darker and grimmer setting, and its set of [=COs=] tended to add bombastic rock and roll to the more traditional techno beats. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ElgVrXizcp8 "Hope Never Dies"]], Brenner's theme, is merely the beginning. The theme fits its name perfectly though. Getting your ass handed to you on a gold plate, sometimes you don't want to go on. Then your opponent end his turn and Brenner gets on stage, instantly pumping liquid courage into your ears.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lV-ULQEsdcg Flight Of The Coward,]] Waylon's theme, is also worthy of mention. Particulary worth mentioning concerning his theme is that the first time you encounter him he is fleeing and you only hear the comical intro of the song and then it cuts to the next player because his turns are so short. He seems like a joke. The first time you face him in battle though you get past the intro and know that he is serious now.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=etJClruhNu4 Mr. Bear/Penny's theme]] reflects her personality perfectly...
** Also, listen closely to that whisper sound effect in the background: [[MadnessMantra What have you done, What have you done, what have you done, what have you done, what have you done, what have you done, what, what, what have you done!]] Her CO info says Caulder [[FridgeHorror subjected her to mental and biological expariments when she was a baby]]
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tL797eWdf_4 Isabella's Theme]] Is rather upbeat for such a grim game, and fits in with the ongoing motif of there being hope despite the new world.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MI3YVaTtvOg Proud Soldier]], Gage's theme, with killer bagpipes.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UN1qsUvdD5Y Decadence]], a piece from the game that was used in the trailers.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=I66Ea5gTSqc Power Up.]] It drives home the "never give up hope" attitude with all the force and fury of a typhoon and appropriately boots up for the first time as you're (hopefully) making a come back against [[spoiler:Admiral Greyfield]]. Also, its dark counterpart [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IbhRbkb4OBc Stormy Times]] is no slouch in reminding you that all hope is lost for your cause.
* The BigBad's themes in every AdvanceWars game so far have been memorable, and [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WGBqbxjR2vs Puppet Master,]] Caulder's theme, is no different. With heavy drum beats and a demented circus-like theme, it really fits the mad scientist you're trying to face off with.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vGYa8zVt3MQ We Will Prevail]], the main character's theme. It's a joy hearing it after [[HesBack Will snaps out of his]] HeroicBSOD.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KdsPxC5g5Uw Goddess of Revenge]], Tasha's theme. Fits wonderfully for a BloodKnight like her.
* As soon as you hear [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TRwZmUUuMQI Greyfield's Theme]], even before he hits the MoralEventHorizon, you know that this is not a kind and mentally-balanced man.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z_GxeKBrng0 Cruel Rose]], Tabitha's theme. She's a cold calculated killer bitch and this theme enhances her role as DaddysLittleVillain.
* This game allows you to not play as a CO. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_HJbtbqjCu4 This theme]] gives us a reason why we should try it!
