* The "Level Up" music is a remix of [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3zmWfJzYEkE SMB3's World 1 overworld theme]].
* Tubba Blubba's [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qAsw54kfbyo theme for his heart]] and his [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7A6PQt0AlYE chase theme]] are pretty ominous and epic.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NP7WvmTJeoc Raphael the Raven's Theme]] is a catchy and epic EarWorm!
* The [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iXybaXTvlk4 Puff Puff Machine!]]
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GhfdvIJY1lM The Cloud Theme.]]
* The theme of [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fOmjYCnx-ds The Master!]]

* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7X2dHs8OXh4 Starborn Valley.]]

** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BFbdwxLDzMA Bowser's theme!]]
* Not often acknowledged, but [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GpvpUo0fpTE Wish of the Princess]], a heartwarming piece where Peach prays from the bottom of her heart and gives the Star Spirits power.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FKpzMDhC73g Pop Diva's Song]].
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=k_sEDtN1Ug0 Gusty Gulch]] has an amazing guitar part.

[[folder: ''Video Game/Paper Mario The Thousand Year Door'' ]]

* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-EDhb2m8qhk Doopliss's Theme]]
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Mll2EwvxnrM Rawk Hawk's Theme.]] "TIME TO RAWK!" indeed.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WvF3uPr5dUg The X-Naut Fortress]]. Yeah. That techno track is from a Mario game.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fLYA2KzcUzc The Final Battle against the Shadow Queen!]]
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=15Mq3r9AnbU Her initial theme...]]
* Even [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mZoCLi000js the file selection theme]] is epic-- it goes for nearly two minutes without looping, on a screen where most people only spend a few seconds.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lwA1lMIAmsY The standard battle theme]].
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qynL9nrceKM Big Bowser Koopa Krush.]]
** On that note, the [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wypPUpCoxR0 theme that Bowser is introduced to]] is just plain awesome, and even better than the {{Leitmotif}} he has for the rest of the game.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hrErjXeoGQA Shadow Sirens' Battle.]]
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3-HJY7Bx_Z0 Rogueport.]]
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3qolOzPWw0Q Cortez's Theme.]]
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=i-A7wDnMBkA Puni theme.]]
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RFKrhiKrbHo Macho Grubba's theme.]]
* One of the best themes in the game is without a doubt the [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eyhLabJvb2M Crystal Shards' theme]] that plays in one of the game's best moments.
** On the note above, the [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pWkwuSYJg50 story intro theme]] is fairly awesome in its own right.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BD4hnwoNLQw Petal Meadows.]]
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g5wF_OV_RGQ Lord Crump's/Magnus Von Grapple's battle theme.]]
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=w4Xvy_NjdKE Hall of the Thousand-Year Door]]. Creepy, atmospheric, and oh-so awesome.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7xyHaIlmW1c Radio Tune B.]]
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=17NrV7BOyiU The Sanctum.]]
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=r3mvyrZS36A Tower of Riddles]]. Shame it only plays [[LongSongShortScene in one spot]] of the VeryDefinitelyFinalDungeon.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ykRODZk6n8w Fire Up The Cannon]]. Plays when you get ''fired out of a huge-ass cannon TO THE MOON.'' After going through a long and tedious ChainOfDeals quest to get the Cannon operating, the music makes everything totally worth it.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3KFFPdF-KY8 Doopliss' Battle Theme]]
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GPFcBwwniAA Smorg's Theme]]. For a GiantSpaceFleaFromNowhere, it's amazing for a fight against a monster on top of a luxury train.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1oq5TLPM-gg Grodus's battle theme]].

[[folder: ''Video Game/Super Paper Mario'' ]]

* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-VxKluLUGmE Count Bleck's Theme.]]
** Pretty much everything involving Count Bleck could fit on this page. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=S9pepI9PfBQ His battle theme]], [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Nk2prGHjOJQ Castle Bleck]], [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wqMzgUgf0Xg Birth of a Chaos Heart]], and above all [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qO7OiXpMLL8 Champion of Destruction]].
* The final boss theme, appropriately called [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Dd3y6Pci3g8 The Ultimate Show]].
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5o7iaSZMiWc Outer Space]]. This piece of music is at Super Mario Galaxy level. It just can't get more awesome.
* Mr. L. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=34RUwTuQM2k His theme]] was already incredibly catchy, and then made awesome for the [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ReS4YRTcydE remix used for your battle with him]]. The composers later [[UpToEleven topped themselves]] with the amazing [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=43-bkLOCK3M remix used for your rematch]].
* The battle against [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4SpeH_heG_Y Dimentio.]]
* The [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0Vuc6UjesGQ Fracktail]] battle theme.
* [[http://br.youtube.com/watch?v=h0Xs2VkuiIg Lineland Road]]. Very interesting pick of classic Mario tunes.
** And, on the same vein, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gclqmXTg0aA The Open Plane]]. Retro never sounded so good.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7RoTjkx2zfs Gloam Valley]]. This song is the first one you hear in Chapter 2, coming directly after you've beaten Chapter 1 and figured out the pattern of how this game is going to go. So in a way, the song is this SPM's way of saying "Okay. So you've learned the basics, so now it's time to start the quest for real. You ready? Good. ''Let's kick this game off.''"
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YXx9I0HwL2Y Soft Light]] provides a level of epicness you just don't expect from Mario.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lvS50wVMMEI Promise]]. No better music for [[spoiler: the end of Blumiere and Timpani's story]].
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=c059uvkyoGQ Sammer's Kingdom]]
** The Sammer Guy battle theme, appropriately titled [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6wfX8dFqu3c "Battle Time"]], also counts.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DMUD24WICV4 Fort Francis]] fits its level quite well: vaguely techno, rather strange, and creepy without being so much as to be off-putting.
* Chapter Five has two great level themes, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8kWSGXo2BOA Downtown of Crag]] for the first two stages, and [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=S4mzejaSR4c Floro Caverns]] for the latter two.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hPrjE98sz0M I'm Not Nice]], the theme for the later battles with Mimi. Suitably creepy and awesome. Her [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bndUdAMCfLQ first battle theme]] isn't half bad either.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sOZ6BtMvcZ0 Bounding Through Time]], a beautiful piece...
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2g1m9WWeBOg Evil King Bowser Here!]]
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j0RfA0vMdDY Merlee's Mansion.]]
* Any time after beating Bonechill, you can return to Grambi's place for [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=S_NeUK7YL3s this]] [[IncrediblyLamePun heavenly]] tune.
* The [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5H9Z8s3eVUw Memory]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YnzdlLslW94 themes]] (that are later remixed into Bounding Through Time) [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bp56U1hblM8 which play]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LggcTODp2zc during the flashbacks]] are pretty good as well. And someone even [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kOpjlNcJ5O0 put them]] together!
* The [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fF8VEwzm1cs Pit of One Hundred Trials]] theme has an utterly mystical feel to it.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HjvgqV6EF5k Bowser's battle theme]], a downright badass remix of the Dark Land theme from ''VideoGame/SuperMarioBros3''.

[[/folder]]

[[folder: ''Video Game/Paper Mario Sticker Star'' ]]

* The theme from the [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UaSpm-15BfQ 2011 E3 trailer]], which sounds strangely similar to the ending theme of ''VideoGame/SuperMarioBros2''.
* The [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F3jZDthZxNQ title screen music]], which is a jazzy remix of the trailer theme above.
* The [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8ePM00T313E Grass land theme]] is pretty cool too, with at least some similarities to the ''Super Mario 3D Land'' one.
* The incredibly catchy [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NmEay7Ys83g battle theme.]]
* The fight against the Tower Power Pokey also has a [[http://youtu.be/PZ7nAKmIy0s very awesome tune]], sounding very tense and fitting for a Desert boss.
* The Gooper Blooper [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tgjx6QtlnmM fight themes]], a salsa dance tune that increases in intensity as he shifts his attacks. Gooper Blooper provides the claps to the beat himself in battle. [[spoiler: If the proper Thing Sticker is used, the music will be [[ThemeMusicPowerUp replaced with a upbeat remix of the original Super Mario Bros. theme]] while Mario is given the advantage.]]
* The [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_FJKewvQ7-Q miniboss theme]] is actually pretty dang catchy.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ct867ctsSp4 Megasparkle Goomba's]] battle theme is really fitting.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=c9HJTxl15VQ The storybook theme]] is a nice remix of ''Super Mario Bros. 3'''s end of world music.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_8NGKE-jRFs Kamek's]] battle theme is also really fitting for the wizard.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OfCOJDMKrP0 Boo Night Fever]], the theme that plays when battling the Disco Boos.
* The final boss theme. [[spoiler: All three of them]]. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MKzHFDgVjRY The first phase of Bowser's battle theme]], [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dMTHOQjmpNU the second phase]], and [[spoiler:[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wubN9O34TkY Kersti's Power]], the very first ThemeMusicPowerUp ever used for a Mario final boss.]] The best part? It reveals the main theme of the game to be [[spoiler:a redux of the series' ''invincibility theme'', which is brought out more to reflect Mario's enhanced status.]]
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=REc9drhmmrI Jungly Jungle]] the main level theme for the beginning of chapter 5 is incredibly catchy.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BV249dfkpY4 Petey Piranha's]] battle music. It's just as catchy as the rest, and fits the intense volcanic atmosphere.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ci1z24WieEk Mizzter Blizzard's theme]] in the same level of the others' boss fights.
