* The ''VideoGame/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=Es1uNda4p8o Ladder to Heaven]].
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aa0mfu5wZdw Imbroglio]]. Not only is it one of the best final boss themes ever, but one of the greatest battle themes ''period''.
* [[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]]
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CGPlwYWYGLs Star Shape.]]
* 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:
** "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5v4bVuVcV1c Ghosts Jogging]]" and "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NUDq8BcJnwI Special Short Cuts]]" (First game).
** "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=If2pXI5mKbA Swoop!]]" and "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Hd_yeh30hSw Concon Ticktin Con Ticktin]]" (''Covenant'').
** "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=a2MAK0Ub8Yo Gestalt Collapse]]" and "[[http://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'').
* Like the battle themes, they have their own berserk tracks:
** "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KpZgoVWkfyg Melt Down]]" and "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=L0a1edZ0cjY Sicking Fucking]]" (First game).
** "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UoUNAzHoRao Crack Your Body]]" and "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JEwJ3-bdDLo Getting Nasty]]" (''Covenant'').
** "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iKjG4FJNvJI A Silver Smile]]" and "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=N3GBqJdeIJ4 Auditory 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'').
* Every game has their a signature town theme for their continent:
** "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y1TEvNyBWj4 Heaven - Kunyang Kunyang (Fengtian)]]", "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ankqjBDMMrA Sea- Highnoon Fish (Dalian)]]", "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bx9XO98Won0 Swindler - Shanghai Mood (Shanghai)]]" and "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BZhh36w5gnU C-I-T-Y (Prauge)]]", "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hIP05cMZw3E But-Dad-Dead-Bed (Rouen)]]", "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GpGSOqDny80 Vitamin Metropolis (London)]]" (First game).
** "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=n_0iEKU6gn0 Town of Twilight]]" and "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=S2b632ubAVs Rising Sun]]" (''Covenant'').
** "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B56jMq985b8 Moon Shine]]" and "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DNUxL0OnNcA Rum and Tequila]]" (From the ''New World'').
* The first dungeon in ''Covenant'', Apoina Tower, has a tune that gives a sense of mystery and intrigue as Nicolai and Karin delve into the story. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CvAtNteWnhk Death is the Great Leveller]] is remarkably chilling and creepy.
* As a counterpoint, the scene when ''Covenant'''s final dungeon becomes available is accompanied by the beautiful "[[http://youtu.be/NXjaKhGLkXw ~The Fate~ Cluster Amaryllis]]," a tune that starts out tranquil and then grows in power as Yuri calmly confronts the game's final boss. After Yuri is filled in on the EvilPlan, the boss then summons the dungeon and serenely tells Yuri that they will be waiting at the end.
