* The ''ShadowHearts'' series has incredible music. It might be best described as the result of putting the emotive and situationally-iconic music of traditional JRPG soundtracks into a blender along with the hellish noise horror of ''Silent Hill'', turning it to "Liquify," and pushing the "On" button. Examples: [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HhsmXIpWI_s one of many versions of Icaro]], very much [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NXjaKhGLkXw The Fate]], [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=irGCdR0rTM4 Hardcore to the Brain]] (boss music!), [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vZv88h5WtUk Alice]] (you'll especially think so after playing ''Shadow Hearts: Covenant''), and so much more.

* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LYiwMd5y78E The Three Karma]]. A strange song (even more so than Ladder to Heaven, which is already pretty strange), but nonetheless intimidating, dramatic, and glorious.
** The [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wgWfdjUwpME arrangetracks version]] also qualifies.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8MRHV_Cf41E Final Battle (Lady Tears II)]] is nothing short of brilliant.
* ''From the New World'' gives us [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Mo6k_26lzAU Sabbath Demon Banquet]]

* Every game has equally kickass "normal" battle themes:
** "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=D8rIVqZs6y4 Brain Hopper]]" and "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hxe0UdE34x8 Near Death Experience]]" (First game).
** "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-p_SFBS-UCc Vicious 1915]]" and "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OAPY19v_BPw Deep in Coma]]" (Covenant).
** "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uJY6j8sEv5I Dead Fingers Talk]]" and "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YaVgfR0HMHg Mauve]]" (From the New World).
* The themes when a character goes berserk certainly show the feeling of madness:
** "[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5v4bVuVcV1c Ghosts Jogging]]" and "[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NUDq8BcJnwI Special Short Cuts]]" (First game).
** "[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=If2pXI5mKbA Swoop!]]" and "[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Hd_yeh30hSw Concon Ticktin Con Ticktin]]" (Covenant).
** "[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=a2MAK0Ub8Yo Gestalt Collapse]]" and "[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=b_tzno01sh8 Bailar]]" (From the New World).
* In addition to the battle themes, they each have amazing boss themes:
** "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uZMQsHaNTfA China Ogre]]" and "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7urA6KYvSrQ Demon's Jig]]" (First game).
** "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zGKEqK4hq0o Glint of Light]]" and "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ex6ulpbhO3M Hardcore to the Brain]]" (Covenant).
** "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rf89XYPUslw Le Gran Luxe]]" and "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Jx41neNYvsk Electric Hallucinations]]" (From the New World).
* The World Map themes are calm, and soothing, and amazing:
** "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=idev11nFZTQ Blow Up]]" and "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jw5HiwrztE4 Atmosphere - Blow Up]]" (First game).
** "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4f6siAA3C9M Old Smudged Map]]" and "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2THfbRNfofs Grey Memories]]" (Covenant).
** "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SVXBev2RNmY The Mother Earth]]" (From the New World).
