[[folder: Video Game/Megami Tensei ]]

* The game [[SeinfeldIsUnfunny may not have aged well]], but the soundtrack's an exception. Case in point: the intense, driving "[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DTJPasJrqDg Sea of Flames]]".


[[folder: Video Game/Megami Tensei II ]]

* With the power of the N163 chip at his fingertips, Tsukasa Masuko gives the Famicom one of its finest boss battle songs: "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SwlvJ9vsGsU Death Match]]".
* And who could forget the earworm that is "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=L_peXk2XzcM Explorer]]".
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Qy_KVfKoOhI Hallucination]], the overworld theme for Makai, is quite good as well.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=byM8eV0kj00 Devil Speak]], the theme of the Jakyou Manor/Mansion of Heresy/Cathedral of Shadows all began with this.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=s6kUcLFIZRg OMEGA]], the theme for FinalBoss Satan and TrueFinalBoss [[spoiler:YHVH]].
* And finally there is the game's credits theme, the absolutely gorgeous "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6326BFf-P18 Dawn of the Human Being]]".

[[folder:''Shin Megami Tensei'']]

[[folder: Video Game/Shin Megami Tensei I ]]

* The game provides a rather soothing and friendly theme with [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NLcXXz01Tn8 Pascal's Theme]]. A nice little tune for your loyal canine companion.
* The initial map theme [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IxYM0qQoQJA Kichijoji]] is an incredibly catchy song despite its harsh percussion and eerie undertones.
* One of the most famously awesome songs of the series comes from the original: [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=08ImyEZBHcM Ginza]] has to be one of the coolest songs in the series.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JoFE6Ii1f-Y The Battle Theme]], which is pretty hard rocking for being one of the earlier games.
* [[http://youtu.be/X1Jx-rfniaw The Boss Theme]], note that this link is for the track from the official soundtrack, and the full version isn't heard in game until it's reused in ''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_hTfOa39_9o Shin Megami Tensei If...]]''. Before then, the first part of the song is just looped. Also awesome are the remixes from [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=chc1O0tu20w NINE]] and [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=K4FCVGR6mpQ IMAGINE]].
* [[http://youtu.be/YS7ipOD6HbE Arcade]], which was remixed admirably in ''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=95tJNXhhnTY Nocturne]]'' as the Ginza theme.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BhKW_KiCjCkE Ruins]], The overworld song for [[spoiler:after the great destruction]].
* [[http://youtu.be/8Yhh5Ol7AZ8 The Law alignment's theme]], quite fitting of the Messians. It got [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=smCPySvfx9I remixed]] in ''Nocturne'' - now even more awesome!
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=V4ZhjeT0kxI Embassy]], and just like the boss battle, the full version can only be heard in the soundtrack.
* [[http://youtu.be/JNwEGyKKRUw Cathedral]] for the final dungeon. Of which only the first 20 seconds are looped in the game.
* The [[http://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PL242DCB34B5636242 PSX]] version of the OST.


[[folder: Video Game/Shin Megami Tensei II ]]

* The [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d0-W842C0EE Chaos]] theme, which manages to sound both peaceful AND threatening.
* The [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9mgDGDo9KGo Law]] theme is straight on sinister. [[spoiler: Fitting, considering Law is still out to commit genocide and end free will.]]
* The [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_IfgxcZ5y0s Boss fight]] theme. Then there's [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=c7W6eWD3AqI this]] boss theme, often played during a ClimaxBoss, or the FinalBoss.
* Everyone dances furiously at the [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rFDvmvht_dA Disco]], including a certain [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fzKbz1DxuRE Mr. Thriller]]
* The Makai [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u7dgFVf6pjc Overworld]] and [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9ydtHMiBTCQ Dungeon]] themes.
* The [[http://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLBCFFCFB062501BBD PSX]] version of the OST.
* The [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TjKrUc_EalM original Battle Theme]] is pretty sweet.


[[folder: Video Game/Shin Megami Tensei If ]]

* [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4NaWKq5Jk-M Old Enemy - Akira Volume]], one of the staple battle themes of the game that has become a favorite for both fans and the developers, with it making appearances in ''Nocturne'', ''IMAGINE'' and ''Persona 5''.
* [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UpSkhR0ts6k Battle - Akira Volume]] remixes the battle themes of the first two games into a catchy, intense song that gets one ready to slay some demons.


[[folder: Video Game/Shin Megami Tensei III Nocturne ]]

* Mysterious and foreboding, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=acZYuUBoEjQ the opening]] is the perfect foreshadowing of what is to come.
* The overworld music of Tokyo before the Conception, titled [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MTHFJacaIb8 Large Map: Real Universe]] is a kickass introduction to the game and a taste of how awesome the rest of the soundtrack will be.
* The music that occurs during the scenes before and during [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fSpOK8JUCTA the Conception]]. It starts with a somber yet peaceful piano intro during the conversation with Yuko before steadily begins to build up moments before the Conception occurs. Once the apocalypse starts in full sway, a majestic and epic organ plays throughout the following destruction of the world and the forming of the Vortex World, building up to a magnificent crescendo before being followed by an epic rock piece mixed with the organs to show that shit just got real.
* Fierce and bestial, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5QH_eAdgEJ8 Beelzebub's battle song]] will make you fear flies.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fylg8zp4Pzo The Reason boss battle song]] is as dignified as an angry god. Nothing says you're fighting the god behind an entire world's philosophy quite like that.
* A two-fer! [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FiveJcnL3aE Demon World Master]] lets you know who exactly is in charge, while Metatron's battle song does the same.
* And then there's [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ngUfhhoRh84 Battle with Dante/Raidou]]. When you hear [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pIvBvkBp8m8k this song]], you know that badassery is just around the corner.
* The [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hQhgTN7bNH8 Normal Battle]] theme. The fact that it's used [[spoiler: during the BonusBoss fight in ''Digital Devil Saga'']] over the half dozen others themes is proof that it is that badass. The best part of the theme (which you don't get when listening to a single recording of it) is that it has [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_q2-yOBOov8 multiple variations of the main riff]] that are chosen randomly during the actual game. It really helps to keep it sounding fresh.
* When you look death in the face, you don't hear yourself laughing. [[http://youtu.be/Qyd3Y-vrwSI You hear this]].
** With [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8CqE1ydsQNg4 this]] immediately preceding. That plus [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MVagm39bnTQ this one that prefaces normal boss battles]] kindly inform the player that they are soooo [[NintendoHard going to die]].
** And curiously enough, this is an actual boss battle remix version of the [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RZwvSI06yo8 character naming theme]] from ''VideoGame/ShinMegamiTenseiII''! Yep, they made a naming theme into one that features [[ThatOneBoss Those Many Bosses]]. BringMyRedJacket, please!
* The [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DmqbhyS-BK8 boss battle theme]] is pretty badass, too.
* There's also [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Go0JWfE9nEw Large Map: Last Area]]. If there were ever a theme that would perfectly underscore a PowerWalk, this would be it.
* From among the other regular battle themes: [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UKZq9xrY0XQ World Map Battle]] goes for straight up rocking. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7RiHmQcHa84 Town Battle]] throws in a jazzy flair to complement the rocking. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=C_z6MtRmmsg Amala Network Battle]] which is originally from ''Shin Megami Tensei If..'' And finally, there's the [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=W6s_fX0zWGI Labyrinth of Amala Battle Theme]].
* Get to the true final boss and you get [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B274jFa5hxY this]].
* And before that, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=R3JTQv9Vmgw Last Battle -Before Transformation-]], a track so out of place for a final boss it loops around all the way to the perfect fit.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TitUJrwcxio Metatron's]] battle theme. A perfect fit for the voice of god.


[[folder: Video Game/Shin Megami Tensei Strange Journey ]]

* From ''VideoGame/ShinMegamiTenseiStrangeJourney'', we have [[http://youtu.be/dMzfJz3MY2o The Fear of God]]. It's the random battle theme. You know you've got yourself a game with good music if the ''normal battle theme'' is awesome.
* And then we have the title screen music, where we see the Red Sprite, Blue Jet, Elve, and Gigantic racing toward the Antarctic storm that is the Schwarzwelt, while listening to [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xaTaHwcr-lk this]].
* The first dungeon music that plays is [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y9XNVDJfH9s A Scorched Nation]]. The game has no pretenses about making it clear that ''you're entering hell''.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=07SR4mexs0A Take the Shield, Raise the Spear]]
* It doesn't end there, since when you fight an unknown enemy or a ''MiniBoss'', you get [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JCKMXriWhYo An Honor Befitting That Name]].
* At the lowest points of the game's story where you feel like you can't go on, you'll definitely need inspirational speeches and [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rmJDhpZltbs Morale]].
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XY-0cJogIfc In the Master's Name]], which plays whenever you're in a situation where shit just got real.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FxtwiSupAvY Holy Miracle]]. Never before has the phrase "God is PISSED!" been more appropriate.
* And ''then'' there's [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=myrOKmOt71U Vehement Rage]], the track for a sector boss.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d_D_DQ1_WJMc The Tyrannical Hero]] is perhaps the best battle theme in the whole game, and it really captures the emotion of a battle to the death with [[spoiler: Jimenez, pretty much your closest friend on the Red Sprite.]]
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5KpFI0BbUqA Scepter of Justice.]]
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Atgm7H54SaA Sorrow]], while [[TearJerker not awesome in the traditional sense]], does a fantastic job with enhancing sad moments.


[[folder: Video Game/Shin Megami Tensei IV ]]

* ''Shin Megami Tensei IV''[='=]s music has plenty of candidates, such as the hard-rocking [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZAbA2IHuVeU Boss Battle]] and [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jAclWKLfOoM The Archangels]], which plays against [[spoiler: Uriel, Gabriel, Michael, and Raphael]], who are fought in DLC. The main boss theme also plays during several of the ultimate {{Bonus Boss}}es (such as [[spoiler:Astaroth and Beelzebub]]) in place of the Challenge Quest boss themes, to hammer home how dangerous these particular demons are.
* The [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qDsDYCI3fyc Tokyo Overworld]] theme is incredible as well. It is both epic and sad at the same time. Fitting for [[spoiler: a world that is about to end]].
* As you and your fellow Samurai reach Ueno Station shortly after arriving in Tokyo, the rather dreary [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=R0XmaWzcWbQ Ueno Underground District]] theme plays, highlighting just how much of a CrapsackWorld Tokyo is compared to Mikado.
* And as you get accustomed to Tokyo and arrive in Shinjuku Station, the more upbeat [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dClKPzjyHns Shinjuku Underground District]] theme plays.
* The catchy-as-hell [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Na1JEcog_t4 Midtown]] theme.
* The [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=50MTGAvcngM Infernal Tokyo Theme]] is also quite good.
* The [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8_D3xF1IFlo Tokyo Battle Theme]] can quickly excite a player.
* Tired of listening to that theme? Don't worry, the [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0wCQ42AlCsA Blasted Tokyo Battle Theme]] (a very similar song is used for the Infernal Tokyo Battle Theme) will have you rocking again.
* The [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Gkjl-j9kG2k Domain Boss Theme,]] despite rarely playing in the main story, is one of the best battle themes in the game. [[spoiler: It also plays in ''VideoGame/ShinMegamiTenseiIVApocalypse'', when you betray Dagda in the Bonds route.]]
* The [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Vrx1sZYgp7Ek Infernal Kasumigaseki]] is a simple but heavy theme that gets your blood pumping. Sadly, it's only used in one room in the entire game.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HdvM6Wsr7IU Merkabah I]] has one of the richest full-blown orchestra battle theme in the game. Not to mention it was used again for DLC bonus boss [[spoiler:Ancient of Days, aka God's avatar]].
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VyVBXHz85pQ Merkabah II]], which plays for [[spoiler:the One Winged Angel form for the fusion of the Archangels and Jonathan who serves as the leader of the Law forces]].
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jH9QRyPWBo8 Lucifer I]], which plays for the first phase of the fight against...well, guess. It plays again for the Chaos DLC BonusBoss, Sanat.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BwQuxPHQCeo Challenge Quest Alpha]], which plays while a Challenge Quest to slay demons is activated, keeps your blood pumped for the quest.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ohAiFqvZkvE Challenge Quest Beta]], which plays while an exploration or escort Challenge Quest is activated, keeps you focused on your task.
* The Ikebukuro Underground District gets some [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XEtRzDYYBuY pretty snazzy music]] after you [[spoiler:liberate it from Xi Wangmu]].
* So you're just beating up hordes of reasonably difficult mooks for a quest, finish off the last one, and breathe a sigh of relief. Then David appears and the Fiend theme from ''III'' [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GhhhsvS9CeU comes back]] in all its "prepare to get wrecked" glory!
* The theme for [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XgCvnkg4ncY Camp Ichigaya]], an ideal synth piece for [[spoiler:[[DiscOneFinalDungeon the last dungeon before you go to the alternate versions of Tokyo]].]] It comes back in ''Apocalypse'' for the same area, and manages to sound even more badass because this time, [[spoiler:the place is ''on fire''.]]
* [[http://youtu.be/AhvLVhuh2dg Isabeau's Theme]]. A really epic yet sad piece, perfect for late in the story when [[spoiler: you are forced to fight her to the death in the Law and Chaos routes]]. [[spoiler:It also comes back in ''Apocalypse'', during the PlayerPunch moment as you fight through your former allies the moment you select the Massacre ending.]]
* The [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Lzjc1Y6Nf7E Neutral Theme]], a haunting, sorrowful, yet beautiful theme that reflects [[spoiler:Isabeau's and Masakado's]] resolve and hopes of salvaging humanity and [[spoiler:liberating Tokyo from the 25-year-old Firmament.]]
* [[http://youtu.be/CrrTuoNyxns The final area for the Law and Neutral]] routes is a great, heavy, piece that captures the atmosphere of the place. Note, the song title contains spoilers for the final boss of said routes.
* The dungeon theme for [[spoiler:[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7b08GGuTAwg Purgatorium.]]]]
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2_ipmyhggn8 Kiyoharu's theme]], which plays in [[spoiler:Blasted Shinjuku.]] As a subdued arrangement of the ''Shin Megami Tensei I'' Law theme, it reflects [[spoiler:the catastrophic damage that the forces of Law inflicted upon Tokyo, forcing humans to corral up in the last bastion of safety.]]
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6om-6N_yclo The battle theme]] for [[spoiler:Masakado himself in his full form]], a suitably dramatic piece as you [[spoiler:try to pull a GetAHoldOfYourselfMan on him, as he's gone insane trying to form the Firmament around Tokyo.]] It's a TimeLimitBoss battle, [[spoiler:and the music fittingly includes Masakado's roaring and a sound very reminiscent of a city warning siren as the nuclear ICBM is ten turns away from striking Tokyo.]]


[[folder: Video Game/Shin Megami Tensei IV Apocalypse ]]

* The haunting [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oV22c7LMGZQ Main Theme]] that also played in the Tokyo Collapse animation.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kG22JL4RRTI The new Tokyo theme]], a rather soothing song.
* [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3-D4P_HNr6o Time of Choice]], the second overworld theme. An epic remix of the main theme that really describes the increasing tensions as Law and Chaos resumes their war.As far as overworld themes are concerned,it's up here with Nocturne's Last Area.
* [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pw5DZ9UyOsQ The new regular battle theme]] continues ''IV'''s fine tradition of kickass rock themes, as does [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=elkEvP4cdeA the regular boss theme]].
* [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1Dg7yDHzgFE The Divine Powers battle theme]] stands out from the regular boss theme, reminding you of the nature of the threat you face. The Divine Powers really hit the jackpot when it comes [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=onwgXCnEy0s to strong, intimidating themes.]]
* [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tZyZIZ1MfuM God Killer]], also known by the more spoileriffic title [[spoiler:Vishnu]], plays twice on Peace and Anarchy: the battles against [[spoiler:Vishnuflynn]] and [[spoiler:Satan]].
* [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cdnNUYDmXOg Foreseeing the Horizon]], the theme of the FinalBoss's first form, features an intense buildup and a godly choir, reminding you of just ''who'' you and your companions are fighting against.
* [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MSxaj3VGJ2A The Final Boss's theme]], referred to as either "Evil Incarnate" or "To Become God's Enemy". It plays for [[spoiler:YHVH's demonic second form and is a remix of battle themes from both games]]. It also plays in the DLC battle against [[spoiler:Stephen]].
* [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9-0WYtVqbyQ The Twisted Tokyo theme]] is unnaturally calming for [[spoiler:an alternate Tokyo overrun by the Fiends]].

[[folder:''Majin Tensei'' sub-series]]

[[folder: Majin Tensei ]]

* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=E9Cj-vcYGjk Scene of Carnage]]. Can get you pumped up for the bosses!
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_XX0PP3x9ks Frame up Fragment]]. YOUR turn man. [[NintendoHard Don't mess it up.]]
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rLv6LCRZczg Devil Dance]]. The thing you will hear on the ENEMY'S turn. [[NintendoHard Right before you die.]] Also, its [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xe3uXSdUK8A Rearrangement.]]
* The remix of ''Megami Tensei II'''s [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nzpnKmbJbNs OMEGA]]. Is there ANYTHING close to a [[spoiler:happy ending in this game]]? Good lord.
* The final battle is met with this badass tune. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7Lga5WziKhA Judux]]. Good luck against [[spoiler:Satan]].


[[folder: Video Game/Majin Tensei II Spiral Nemesis ]]

* The map theme of Slum Tokyo: [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=I15F3w8nJao Smash Up.]]
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xhqz97a4jqU Evolution]], played in 2052.
* The final map theme: [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DvjMKaVxvlI Theme of Endless.]] Wanna know what is even MORE awesome? [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YqdkZpa3UiQ The Re-arrangement.]]
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vbMpB4i-k1o Deja Vu]] which is played before each mission. It also got [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2JECkD-AwsU re-arranged]] into a more awesome theme.

[[folder:''Persona'' series]]

[[folder: Video Game/Persona ]]

* Sure, the first ''VideoGame/{{Persona}}'' has its share of problems, like a translation resembling the product of a drunk interpreter, however, there is one thing that makes the game such a cult hit, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4d7Adchbmyk the boss battle song Dead Line]]. It also got remixed in the ''Persona 2 Eternal Punishment'' remake, renamed as [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pl5OQAv9aL0 "The Brink of Death."]]
* The [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lTMrtrK8Xf4 main battle theme]] is pretty catchy too. It helps that [[SuspiciouslySimilarSong it sounds a lot like]] the ''Mortal Kombat'' theme.
* The remake did well with [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wPbUDlHrNYI the last battle in the SEBEC chapter]].
* Like the new music or not, the [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=A_sR-LFfZAU remake's OP song]] is [[EarWorm damn catchy]].
* The [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B1KYga2TeYw school theme]] from the remake captures the magic of exploring St. Hermelin perfectly.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IJzbjRYi4EA A Lone Prayer]] is very empowering battle music.
* Many people enjoy the [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xpzqq1XjF8E boss fight music.]] SET ME FROM THAT BLOOOOOOODY DESTINY!
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0qbINMJuWBs Awakening Legend]] from the original version of ''VideoGame/{{Persona}}'', when a character awakens their Persona for the first time.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Mn3Q0Tz2zfg The Velvet Room theme.]] Considering how it's used in later games, it might as well be the series' main theme.
* The end credits for the original version use this version, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kzoM2JHjOx4 Song of Everyone's Souls]].
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QcKACWTGwsU Thanatos Tower]] for the remake. [[NightmareFuel Be very afraid...]]
* On the note of scary stuff, [[http://youtu.be/4mCooqGrkrU?t=25m25s The Girl In Black]] is delightfully sinister.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bAHaGn-4djI Both]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Aer5BTxA178 versions]] of Night Queen are undiluted awesome!
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sQJENBPfzLs Battle-Thesso]]. Nothin' says BizarroEpisode quite like this...
* "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hrcuIHp4rH0 School Days]]" from the PSP remake is the epitome of EarWorm.


[[folder: Video Game/Persona 2 ]]

* The [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mDCXpnK15k0 Main Theme]]. Which happens to be an instrumental version of the awesome ending theme, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vxswdGnXBJ0 Kimi no Tonari]]. The game is filled with great music, but these tunes in particular stand out. As does [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=P_XtIemqpS0 Main Theme A]], the other variation of the main theme. It certainly helps that these pieces of music are played during many a SugarWiki/{{Heartwarming Moment|s}}.
* Another often played during a SugarWiki/{{Heartwarming Moment|s}} is [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1-4l1AYUISc Reminiscence (Beloved)]]. And two of the most catchy and awesome character themes are [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=r5fD08Udnus Maya's theme]] (including her [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CCyL7woseR0 sad version]]) and [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MQxPSsImKAU Yukino’s theme]].
** Also, the [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Bi7R3oqrRi4 remix of Maya's Theme]] that was used for ''Eternal Punishment''.
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HP9I9TsMQ1M Once more]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xL0WAcmY8O0 Maya's theme]] (PSP versions).
* The [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gzXLed9QGRs remake opening]] is just awesome. The music that goes with it really helps!
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6irgNGCqBws The song that plays]] when [[spoiler:Maya Amano dies]] is very sad. (Don't forget to put it in 480p.) Be warned though, the title of the video is a spoiler.
* The PSP OST. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UN5EXrDFK3w Here's the remade battle theme]] and it's AMAZING. (And put it in 720p for increased cool.)
* The ''Innocent Sin'' boss theme, in both [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HMTTUYRFc58 the original]] and [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Vb22li36dJg the PSP remake]] versions.
* The ''Eternal Punishment'' [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Fee0GYSTebg boss theme]] is pretty good too and is a remix of the original. Then the remake came and so did a [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ug-RlW67Gww remix]] [[ShapedLikeItself of a remix]].
* ''Eternal Punishment''[='=]s [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zaFVf2L4y9s battle theme]] is pretty good as well, along with the PSP [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fQFkooARfn0 version]], and its [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xS9RFn7C4Zg remix]].
* Also, [[spoiler: Kashihara/Nyarlathotep]]'s [[http://youtu.be/3By2_ycEaQc theme]].
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kqqrAwbK3bU Change Your Way]], the ending theme to ''Eternal Punishment''. Very inspiring and about the only vocal song in the series sung by an English singer.
* The [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8w3azhr_Kds title theme for the ''Innocent Sin'' remake]]. Approprate music for the darkest game in the ''Persona'' series.
* "Knights Of The Holy Spear", in both [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pYKvVuWnLV0 original]] and [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fXkH8FW4xic remake]] versions.
* ''Eternal Punishment''[='=]s "EX Final Battle" is very fitting for a BonusBoss fight with [[spoiler: Philemon]]. Notable in that the [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5ZThNAFYv3c original's]] orchestral/techno sounds and [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vR9wfBrB9T4 PSP remix's]] [[AutobotsRockOut pure rock]] keep the same melody, tempo, and general awesomeness, but sound really different from each other.
* Finally, there's the [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5ZPR4JjLKjI Meguro's unused remix of "Knights Of The Holy Spear"]] for the PSP, which despite the title is actually a combination of "Knights Of The Holy Spear," "EX Final Battle," and the "Final Boss" theme mixed together in that order. Awesomeness to the third power! Though it was originally unused... The theme eventually saw use by being [[UpToEleven remixed again]] into the [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=R1bgbfEPUog opening theme]] for the ''Eternal Punishment'' remake.
* Really, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=r9AUX7znmTs all]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cfpqp4mOg7Y of]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=w1VlTkkwrCc the]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ammJInI2vAY sad]] themes are great.
* ''Eternal Punishment''[='=]s [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CVuzdPPuVEo Reminiscence]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1-4l1AYUISc event themes]] put both a sad and a heartwarming spin to the original intro music.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xQJOS1BkMZQ Jun's theme]] also known as "Blooming Flower" plays during much of the last act of the game accompanying Jun piecing together his memories. It's a solemn and tragic song perfectly befitting of the character.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EZy0clTG-lw Mt. Katatsumuri]] is a mysterious piece that plays during the part of the game where things start getting heavy.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FTIBbvTxMhA The Velvet Room Theme]] for ''Persona 2''.


[[folder: Video Game/Persona 3 ]]

* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=f_Fc3PxsXzE Aria of the Soul]], a remix of the original Velvet Room theme. Dignified and mysterious, perfect for Igor, and so amazing that it's re-used in ''Persona 4''. Then...
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hR8HcBxaQsk The Battle for Everyone's Souls.]] As mysterious, but now elevated to truly awesome.
** Or better yet, combine both this and [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9pnf1lPfgoU the Reincarnation version]] for [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=E_BRvrs3fFQ one hell of an epic boss theme]].
* The opening movie sets the tone with [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kjV13aPYNhg Burn My Dread]].
** A [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wmgCGJQGCWQ remix]] of it plays during [[spoiler: the real final battle]]. Then they added more awesomeness in the [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PtmHuDQC8I8 Reincarnation Remix]]
** Upset that the original version never got a Reincarnation remix? ''Spring of Birth'' more than made up for it by [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=63O7X2jeWFM remastering the original version.]]
** ''Winter of Rebirth'' brings us the absolutely jaw-dropping [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=E4v1vx_iHbc Last Battle (Future Arrange) version.]]
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1Wi1Y8cmjyM Heartful Cry]] from ''The Answer'' accompanies three of the most emotionally rending boss fights in the game.
* And for a dark horse favorite, there's [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WVVNvhVnP74 Shadow]], the theme as The Magician's attacking the dorm.
* ''[[UpdatedRerelease Persona 3 Portable]]'' brings some new songs to the table, from the ''epic'' new opening [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wsSizw8LPYE Soul Phrase]] to the Female Protagonist's [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3NDEOZzrSbc new battle theme]] and [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7zZ3HDCxfZE boss battle.]]
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=I-CSZDbKuL4 Memories of You.]]
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jiiPjfueZEQ Memories of You - Reincarnation Remix.]]
** The [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=if3HGAqFOmo Trinity Soul version]] is just as awesome.
** The song also has a [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MOKyf_7J6sA fan translation]], and like the former is still just as awesome.
* Listen to this [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yID7Uc956CE performance]] of "Heartful Cry". In fact, just listen to the whole live concert.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6jFaoLrLzd4 Mass Destruction]], the song when you fight random battles.
** You know what's even better than that? A [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4iP_efhalhA dual-mix version]]
** This [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DYQwbTDj-to version]], which plays during random battles of ''The Answer''.
** ''Midsummer Knight's Dream'' features a [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=r8uQAe0_Y3c remix]].
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9BUh4zWQ9fs Unavoidable battle]], especially with a fight against certain Bonus boss. And here is [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JJeeAzWU9mQ the Reincarnation remix]].
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YO9hh1URHts Master of Tartarus]] deserves a mention also.
* Once you get to the last month of the game, the themes for the locations around the city get changed. And the city theme, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7aJ6v40BZCQ Memories of the City]] is the best one of them all. The more somber-sounding theme really fits the darker look of the city, as well as the sheer weight of what the characters are preparing to do.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9G22pw5N8-o Living with Determination]] often plays during sad moments and [[spoiler: when someone reaches the resolution they need to evolve their persona]]. A [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iRYSk12SZvw remix]] plays after [[spoiler: New Year's Eve]] in the dorm. It pumps the player up to prepare for [[spoiler: the arrival of Nyx]].
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=idRhQsjc28c Master of Shadow]], the theme of the Moon Shadow bosses. Otherworldly ''awesome''.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sc919Y0WD_8 Deep Breath Deep Breath]], the song only plays during when you're on the train going to fight the first shadow. But it's still ''awesome''.
** It also plays during [[spoiler: Operation Babe Hunt!]]
** Now [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Me7oEdpEy9A remixed for the second movie.]]
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wCnkw54H4m0 Darkness]], the theme for the final boss fight of [[PlayableEpilogue The Answer]]. Sounds a bit like "Divine Identity" (see the ''Digital Devil Saga'' section), and evokes the same feeling: ''"Let's go kick ass!"''
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=An_XpXXnxnQ Snow Queen]], a truly ''awesome'' remix of the ''[[VideoGame/{{Persona}} Megami Ibunroku Persona]]'' song of the same name.
* Speaking of remixes, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DtHRVgFZ0ac Maya's theme]] is a huge tearjerker, especially if you know the game.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HmTLEeM8A4Y Brand New Days]], which is the P3 main screen theme. It also is the theme of choice for one of the most heart-wrenching scenes in the game.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=L-R_etiTF4Q A vocalized remix]] plays during the credits to The Answer.
* School would be much more popular if they piped the upbeat and catchy [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BdLt-oydrxE Want to be Close]] into the halls. Oddly, take away the percussion and piano and you've got the appropriately titled [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-f-dFZRmiFs Tranquility]].
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_8gT61NVLDk Mistic]] (sic), which is the basis for the themes of the different Tartarus floors and plays during one of the tensest moments in the game (when the player decides whether or not to [[spoiler: kill Ryoji]]). It's based around a deep relaxing piano and string melody, but avoids SoundtrackDissonance.
* The ''Spring of Birth'' movie brings us [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dklh1N7Lm1Q "More Than One Heart"]]. Appropriate to the movie's title, the song makes you feel like you're out in the middle of a spring day, basking in the sunlight.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_jePhJghHLA Fate is in Our Hands]], the theme for the second movie.


[[folder: Video Game/Persona 4 ]]

* The boss theme [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6psnrd6m6qQ I'll Face Myself (Battle)]] and the theme that plays after one of the protagonists gets their persona [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PpUy8r7pE5Q I'll Face Myself - Slow Version]].
** The [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uKAycv7yWyc melancholic remix]] of it that plays [[spoiler: when Dojima is in hospital.]]
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aJ5WWX3DgIc This fan remix]] is an orchestral version, and has FREAKING BONGO DRUMS in the second verse!
** The Reincarnation album brought us what is possibly [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UbxUd_Ogczk the most epic version]] of "I'll Face Myself (Battle)" yet. So epic it gets reused in the Animation and Golden's fights with [[spoiler: Shadow Mitsuo and Marie]], respectively.
** Speaking of [[spoiler: Shadow Mitsuo]], the ''Golden'' actually gives a special 8-bit remix of the theme called [[spoiler:[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KjuormKijYw Shin Mitsuo Tensei]]]].
** ''Golden'' presents us with [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZuLhlM7W6PM I'll Face Myself-Battle (Another version)]] when you have to fight [[spoiler: Maire and her true form Kusumi-no-Okami.]] It's a dual remix with two versions of "I'll Face Myself", and very epic at that too.
* The bad, good, and true (two themes for separate two phases) ending boss themes. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mrV0J9yIW8c A New World Fool]], [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=A4DKTAKE03g The Almighty]], [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EHRfd2EQ_Do Fog/Kiri]], and [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4KuxELB-mrU The Genesis]] respectively.
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kvIH7uxH82c The concert remix of The Almighty]] is almost certainly better than the original and is made of 100% ''epic''.
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Wn_xh4xaCqw "The Genesis" sounds more triumphant at double speed]].
* And of course, the regular battle theme [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CnORxdWTGiA Reach out to the Truth.]] Here's a [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8zftmaC_1PQ full and remastered version]] from the Reincarnation album.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=P3ue1JPFXEU Heartbeat, Heartbreak]] the song that plays after school (while walking around town on rainy and foggy days), and [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ybaVWcH_zBQ Heaven]], [[spoiler: Nanako's]] dungeon theme music. If you liked Heaven, wait until you hear the epic [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3D5TJYRrzCo dual mix]], a combination of the original and the concert versions.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tz7jCLLrZ0U Never More]]. The song alone is heartwarming. The [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JQmZi94cjL4 Reincarnation version]] goes "We Will Rock You" on us.
* The opening track, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4WW2EacAseE Pursuing My True Self.]] It's the first thing you hear and sets the tone for the rest of the game. Like "Reach Out to the Truth," it got a [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0F-XzhAMFAM full, remastered version]] in the Reincanation album.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3_cp4g7YGic Backside of the TV]]. Just listening to that tune while preparing to rescue the next victim in the TV world...
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6jX-Lrhrt1M Sauna]], a track befitting [[MundaneMadeAwesome an adventure through a bathhouse]].
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IDv7fPjHDxc Your Affection]], the cheerful, uplifting track that plays on sunny days.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WO0cRYxHE70 Corner of Memories]]. Players who've just come off of finishing P3 are liable to be struck with what can be described as nostalgia, due to the theme's similarity to [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HmTLEeM8A4Y Brand New Days]].
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OdB22wQDEEo Long Way]]. This music really gets you pumped up for the game's last battle. [[spoiler: Well, second-to-last or third-to-last if you play your cards right.]]
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SuwQjZ3ZAxE SMILE]]. You know you're about to have a HeartwarmingMoment when this starts up.
* On a similar note, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ig9RCFmjFpM New Days]]. It's a song that makes you want to get up in the morning...
* Shoji Meguro was influenced by big band music when making the Reincarnation versions of [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8xQRe8zR6Z4 "Signs of Love"]], [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=899kstdMUoQ "Specialist"]], and [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uZax6-Af6Bc "Like A Dream Come True"]]. These songs are nothing short of fun!
* Remember "Reverie"? That song that came on during sad scenes? [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JQmZi94cjL4 They made it sadder]].
* And the upcoming AnimatedAdaptation gives us its opening theme: [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eGGgBB2W4w0 Sky's the Limit]]. [[EarWorm Good luck getting this one out of your head]]. Then there's the equally awesome second opening [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y8IwLZkdFVg Key Plus Words]].
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PgabwpHNj5M Beauty of Destiny]], the first ending, is one of the most beautiful songs in the whole franchise.
* The anime also gives us [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LWSMH2p-Cq0 Time for True Revelation]], which plays whenever Kanji starts to kick tail.
* "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=T5HPE63aRAE The Bonds of Everyone's Souls]]" also came from the anime and like the title implies, it's also another Aria remix. Replace the opera singer with a choir and add some organs and guitars and you get a hopeful, awing song fit for a SugarWiki/MomentOfAwesome.
* "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AwQKZESia7M We Are One And All]]", yet another song from the anime, perfectly sets the mood for a triple dosage of ThePowerOfFriendship, SugarWiki/{{Heartwarming Moment|s}} and SugarWiki/MomentOfAwesome. You know, with a dash of summoning [[{{Satan}} Lucifer]] to destroy an EldritchAbomination, for good measure.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YK9Y1EqjDpY Make History]] from [[UpdatedRerelease Persona 4 The Golden]] is excellent.
* Two more songs from Golden are [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=odW1GYM00o0 Memories]], [[spoiler: Marie's dungeon theme,]] and [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xdJGR4J-D_g Snowflakes,]] the town theme for the new winter months.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5GaHnyLGmzg The Way of Memories -Kizuna no Chikara-]], the last ending theme of the anime, basically describing Yu's entire year in Inaba with the Investigation Team and their undying friendship.
* The second anime gives us [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vQG2bnBnzHc "Yin Yang"]] for [[spoiler: [[TheHero Yu's]] fight with [[MagnificentBastard Adachi]].]] It heightens the conflict between the two and shows how they're NotSoDifferent.


[[folder: Video Game/Persona 4 Arena ]]

* The best way to describe ''Arena''[='=]s music would be [[JustForFun/XMeetsY "lounge music meets rock"]] or basically "Blazblue meets Persona".
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zX_GmimFUt0 Yu's theme]] and [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lL9_dojFJCY Aigis' theme]], which are really kickass remixes to "Reach Out to the Truth" and "Heartful Cry", respectively.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XBtEDn--LRc Princess Amagi,]] Yukiko's theme kicks all kinds of ass with a combination of Japanese music, violin, and pure freaking [[AutobotsRockOut ROCK]]. The best part is that the theme matches her completely.
* Yosuke's theme, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gQRa-YcefY4 The Junes Hero]] is a little slow, but really good and can even bring back memories of some old classic ''VideoGame/GuiltyGear'' tune to mind.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oHU55w8SBxM Teddie Circus!,]] Teddie's theme. Who knew a jazz theme would fit Teddie so well?
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-Bqv6ZMWLdA Seeker of Truth,]] Naoto's theme. Those trumpets, that guitar. When it hits that main part it becomes glorious.
* Kanji's theme, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WNE8kmHhNuY A Pure-Hearted Beast]] has a lot of epic electric guitar riffs, sounds like something that would be composed by Daisuke Ishiwatari.
* Newcomer Labrys' theme [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YLLNFb61YZQ Spirited Girl]] is simply beautiful. Also her boss and Shadow form themes, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PXyPd3t_tJs The Ultimate]] and [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aLzFTQJtvIw Shadows of the Labyrinth.]]
* Mitsuru's theme [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=utwcIlVaee4 Missions for the Brilliant Executioner]] sounds quite a bit like the rocking theme found in ''VideoGame/DynastyWarriors''. Which is awesome.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u0SpO70YYjQ The Wandering Wolf]] a.k.a. Akihiko's Theme. Heavy rock coupled with a melodious violin/piano/guitar line further in with an intro sounding just a little bit like something from Unavoidable Battle.
* The game's opening theme, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=i6Qhn8etFm4 "Best Friends"]], and credits theme, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sm66pYd_9ow "Now I Know"]].
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wmXsE2uq0ks Blues in the Velvet Room]]. Honestly, fusing Personas while getting a few drinks at a bar is this song put into words.
* ''Ultimax'' brings us Margaret's theme, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-1iN41edczc "The Battle For Everyone's Souls - Ultimax ver."]] Somehow, it's even more epic than the original.
* Also from ''Ultimax'' is [[AxeCrazy Sho]] [[BigBad Minazuki's]] normal theme, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-dshwqUDUOA "The Joker"]]. It's threatening yet playful like Sho himself.
* Also [[SuperPoweredEvilSide Minazuki's]] theme, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7k8Vzrr26w0 "Blood Red Moon"]]. It fits his more serious side and sounds seriously badass.
* [[EnsembleDarkhorse Tohru]] [[MagnificentBastard Adachi's]] [[CrazyAwesome new theme]], [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Uw4mhtZGudM "A Fool or Clown?"]], is basically Adachi in musical form.


[[folder: Video Game/Persona Q Shadow Of The Labyrinth ]]

* The Main battle theme, "Light up the Fire in the Night", has three variations: the [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=454IG6mfiK8 P3 "Dark Hour" version]], the [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gNoqBPlOvZg P4 "Midnight Channel" version]], and [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_LaHhOPbTe8 Sound of the Labyrinth's Extend Mix of the Dark Hour version]].
* The opening theme, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jsZD5CC8wn4 "Maze of Life"]], sung by both [[VideoGame/{{Persona3}} Yumi Kawamura]] and [[VideoGame/{{Persona4}} Shihoko Hirata]]. Fitting for a CrossOver game. The [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YI5VzNT565M Special Mix]] from [[PreOrderBonus first-print copies and pre-orders]] gives the song a more cheerful and upbeat tone.
* The Boss battle theme, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QQVpmFxphO4 "Laser Beam"]]. You will be pumped for any boss in your way, even [[ThatOneBoss/{{Atlus}} any of the Atlus specials.]]
* The Boss theme for the [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=amAh4BMWc4g fourth boss]].
* [[MemeticMutation Even in my Persona]], [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Sk2c5IrHRxI F.O.E.!]]


[[folder: Video Game/Persona 5 ]]

* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VMz9FMmbIkc The instrumental version of the game's theme song]] that plays in the gameplay trailer.
** And now we have the vocals [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Tg-SRp3sZdQ and it sounds smooth and awesome.]]
** The official OST gives us the [[https://youtu.be/ZjQK6GzZD-w full version]].
* "Tokyo Emergency" is a great song for finding [[spoiler: abused students]]. It really [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Lf7a_MZXuDk adds to the moment.]]
* [[https://youtu.be/J1GA0VtVw-s "Life Will Change"]], a TriumphantReprise of the main theme that plays on the day the Thieves steal the Palace's treasure.
* The main battle theme, [[https://youtu.be/2e7kdoEt2xg "Last Surprise"]] trades the high energy of the previous game's themes for smooth Jazz and still sounds great.
* [[https://youtu.be/itTXN0Wrcio "Awakening"]] plays whenever the next member of the Thieves awakens to their Persona, and is followed by the equally awesome [[https://youtu.be/vKTPhuJpcVs "Will Power"]], which plays through the mini-boss that follows.
* [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IwPZWVEDZxk "Layer Cake"]], a surprisingly cheery and catchy theme for a shady military surplus store.
* The Boss battle theme, [[https://youtu.be/GdYkIF3C7PY "Blooming Villain"]]. The perfect music for taking the corrupt targets down a peg.
* [[https://youtu.be/zVr4QzdwjHQ "The Whims of Fate"]], the theme for the Casino dungeon.
* "Rivers in the Desert", the theme for major endgame bosses. The first time you hear it is the [[https://youtu.be/eTgpSeY9Chw instrumental version]]. The following battle adds in the [[https://youtu.be/sdDiHZiBtpE lyrics]]. Both are perfect for the climactic confrontations during which it plays.
* The FinalBoss theme [[spoiler: [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=C2FXO9f2IdY "Jaldaboath"]]]]. A tense piece that reflects what is probably the largest boss in the ''Persona'' series yet before culminating into a [[AutobotsRockOut triumphant riff]].

[[folder:''Devil Summoner'']]

[[folder: Video Game/Devil Summoner ]]

* Devil Summoner: Raidou Kuzunoha vs King Abaddon has [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=N3AgvfrDhEI New Battle]].
** Also [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_kfjqM7UqbA Battle ~ Raidou]], the random battle theme from Devil Summoner: Raidou Kuzunoha vs The Soulless Army.
** The boss theme from ''Devil Summoner 2'', [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lI8qjMGfdYU Decisive Battle]], is basically everything a boss theme should be.
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mvap8gkDfB8 Fiend Battle.]]
* Both ''Raidou'' games have [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LwJmwp8IwRE "Formidable Foe"]]. It is glorious.
* From the original Sega Saturn game:
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OZv3hjJz4NI Boss Battle]], which comes out swinging with one of the catchiest guitar riffs you'll ever hear and doesn't let up until the song's done. Its remix, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fZ0aOxbqDhc Hyper Rearranged Boss]], might be even better.
** "[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mpSe_4vovcs Yaraiginza Arcade District]]" combines cheerful sax and trumpet melodies with [[Music/RedHotChiliPeppers Flea-style]] slap bass.


[[folder: Video Game/Soul Hackers ]]

* From the ''Soul Hackers'' remake we get [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_EGqO7W8G3c #X]], the opening song.
* The very first dungeon lets you know what you'll be in for with the delightfully sinister, synth-drenched "[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XtcfDmmuDw8 Algon NS Building (Vision Quest)]].
* "[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0FSR3lRaKYc Astronomy Museum]]", whose shimmery synth textures make you feel like you're gazing up at the stars.
* "[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hhkOUgygLLk Virtual Art Gallery (Lobby)]]", another sinister, ambient track that's guaranteed to get you worried about the protagonist's kidnapped sister.
* "[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2IvWuwERZFo Algon Headquarters]]", the penultimate dungeon theme, feels like you're marching to your doom... [[ThatOneBoss and you kind of are]].
* "[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qpTjh9sisRc Nijomon Basement]]", the final dungeon theme, manages to feel laid-back and triumphant at the same time.
* The bizarre "[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zqqezH_SGPQ Sea Ark 11F (Extra Floor)]]", which plays in the postgame dungeon, is way catchier than something this chaotic has any right to be.
* "[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8feEpLgCZw4 Human Brain Research]]" combines eerie synths with the cries of captive primates to make you feel like ''[[ParanoiaFuel something's]]'' stalking you through the halls...
* "[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NUa4zzUs7Fs Somatic Energy Institute]]". Bombastic and playful at the same time, and you'll be hearing a lot of it as you exchange yen and Magnetite.
* [[DubNameChange Redman]] / [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=96rBMpGTAwA Kinap's]] majestic theme.
* "[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uj21UEGvmRo Common Battle]]" is one of the funkiest battle themes in the series.
* "[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=py19GMeAtO4 Naomi Battle]]", a driving, jazzy track that was so good, it got remixed as "[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6_6oRBOvIw0 Case File Battle]]" in the second Raidou game.

[[folder:''Digital Devil Saga'']]

[[folder: Video Game/Digital Devil Saga ]]

* "[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MyG-HLAtGso Prayer]]", the opening for the Japanese version of ''Digital Devil Saga 1'' and the {{Leitmotif}} of Sera, as well as a RecurringRiff for the entire duology. With its hauntingly divine lyrics and intense accompanying rock, it's sure to put you in the mood for some ''Digital Devil Saga'' action.
* "[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y5U93eyig8w Danger]]", the alternative opening, is just as good with its catchy techno jazz that opens up the game just as nicely as "Pray."
* "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6XOEZIZMUl0 Divine Identity]]", the song that plays during ''VideoGame/DigitalDevilSaga 2''[='=]s final boss battle.
** Hell, the [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xXVEzHE48jI normal battle music]] kicks a good amount of ass.
** So does the [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EVCPSFvNlsY normal battle theme]] from the first game.
** When you take the normal battle theme from the first game, [[UpToEleven add MORE awesome]] to it, you get [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z0IDL5XWQVo "Hunting~Betrayal"]], one of the boss themes of the 2nd game. Its uses are also amazing, from the fight with [[spoiler:Meganada, the penultimate boss of the game]] to the fight with [[spoiler:Satan, the ultimate boss of the game and one of the strongest bosses in JRPG history]].
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yjOVPirMKXo Hunting~Compulsion]] deserves special mention for the guitar alone.
* Who knew that you could turn several simple melodies into [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=o08Ir0Mf_qg one kickass battle theme]] that makes you feel like a real strategist?
* [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=escLNAMk7FM Spider's String]], the soothing calm before the final dungeon truly gets underway. Once it does begin in earnest, [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=exRq-RcvVRg The Second Movement]] begins, adding more and more to the song as you ascend.
* The first final boss theme from the first game: [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LJf7jnRQsdE Hari-Hara]]. The opening light guitar up to 0:21 makes you feel really cool and calm...until the '''really''' strong guitar kicks in, and the part from 1:03 to 1:24. The second final boss theme (of the "we are so fucked" variety) is the imposing [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Cz1ix4mVaOI Hari-Hara: 2nd Movement]].
* The airport theme from the 2nd game. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=62AV5vzIA5k One-Way Stairs]]. It starts out sounding like a fairly generic techno track, but around 0:30 it kicks into high gear.

* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UyjPtWih3LU Demon Of Darkness]], which plays during the opening and manages SoundtrackDissonance without sounding any less epic.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WWK4bcsdT7M Pinch Battle]], the stage theme for your BigDamnHeroes moments; you'll feel like a badass every time you hear it.
* Depending on what ending you got, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mdWNZtooJVg Deep Darkness]] will make you feel like either a powerful god or a total jerk.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=i3HzlHC9cwg Last Decision]], the final boss theme in most routes.
* And of course the main theme, in both [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Im2yCikKIIk vocal]] and [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xeJF3fcj3Hs instrumental]] flavours.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=n_r0D5sUzUQ Deep Night]], the map music that plays during a boss fight, manages to sum up the battle in four words using music alone: "Shit just got real."
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=i5NCTgMP6lA Garuda]], the map music that plays when you fight against the final boss, and the bonus boss. It manages to rock your socks off, and still maintain a majestic feel to it.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OHhGP18iHvE Rival Battle]], the wonderfully creepy map music that plays when fighting a formerly friendly character.
* Even the standard battle songs, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9PKzU1EeKks Battle Beat]] and [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=q6AXCObI7z8 Aggressive Tune]], are utterly awesome rock pieces.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=77vFdGS_YDM Soul Survive]]. The opening theme of [[UpdatedRerelease Overclocked]] is just amazing.
* Overclocked gives us [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HLqkMov6GSA Confusion]] as the map theme for the final fight of the 8th Days, with [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SvPfYK01j0Y High touch]] being the ''new'' fast-paced final boss theme.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hGdRE3BoZh0 Cool Jam]], the demon auction music, which also plays when [[spoiler:Black Frost]] joins the party and functions as a sort of theme tune for him.


[[folder: Video Game/Devil Survivor 2 ]]

* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yDhJHHL1dPA Mugen no Sekai]], which can be translated variously as "Infinite World" or "Dream World". The opening theme of the game has a sweet and hopeful vibe to its deadly-sounding title.
* The final battlefield theme: [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=L_4YqXNl-PY Akashic Records]] which is a rearrangement of the title theme. [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zRRuezCfYDM The Special Arrange of Akashic Records]] adds some grand OminousLatinChanting and amazing electric guitar!
* The Septentriones' themes, both the obviously-titled field theme [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=THu-srFS5G0 Septentrion]] and the battle theme [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XSmYjFRFdxQ Break Out]]. The field theme is appropriate for when you're readying yourself to attack a incomprehensible enemy, but when you get to the actual battle theme, you realise just how much weight the battle holds.
** The remix of Septentrion used in the second phase of the final battle, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=V5UlvQSexBs Will of the Species]], is truly excellent as well.
** Speaking of the final battle, here is [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ems2-XW5uac The World's Administrator]], playing during battles against the last form of [[spoiler:Polaris]]; giving the feel that [[spoiler:she]] is no longer tolerant of your party of "foolish humans". All the sweeter when you kick [[spoiler:her]] ass!
* Not to mention [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hPycHgaXqq8 Desperate Situation]]. You're fighting against unfathomable odds, but you have awesome music to pull you through.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kRpWlvT-VgI A Gloomy Person]]. It's enough of a reason to talk to the Anguished One at every opportunity, even discounting [[spoiler:the fact that his path is a "good" ending.]]
* No matter what ending you take, it feels good and fulfilling when you get [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mPqancUsgVw this theme]] here to greet you.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vW3y5G0WmbI Beyond the Firmament]]. One of the most beautiful and [[TearJerker Tear jerking]] piano pieces ever composed. You've outdone yourself Kenji Ito.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ScvOPOuLb0o Shudder]], the boss music when you fight really strong unlockable demons. Plays in every optional boss.
* Even the [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QD_bX9xdwkc standard battle music]] is cool.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VQiZszmkl5M Battle Against a Sworn Friend]], which plays when you fight Ronaldo and the brainwashed Fumi, [[spoiler: [[PlayerPunch as well as when everyone goes their separate ways on Saturday.]] On a certain route, you fight EVERYONE, though that ending is considered to be one of the few genuinely happy endings.]]
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3cDc0ihzOaI Battle of the Brave]]. When you hear it, it means you and your party are going to be doing something awesome.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qOaJ84eBO6o Challenging Fate]], so-named because it's usually played in battles where you [[ScrewDestiny save someone from their fated death]].
* A stark contrast to the ethereal "Septentrion", the full-blown OrchestralBombing of [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7QQ2Py5h1xQ the Triangulum's field theme]] is a perfect fit for an enemy that seeks nothing less than the utter annihilation of humanity.
* [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CEqII28EfpA Providence]], where you fight for the fate of the entire universe [[spoiler:by confronting the TopGod behind the Administrator system]].


[[folder: Video Game/Catherine ]]

* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oHi39Lqy680 The opening theme is awesome.]]
* As is [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tiYQwWg1KrY It's a Golden Show]].
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IbV1awjnNm8 Revolutionary Etude]] would like to say hi.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZIDo4dLlITc The Boss Chase Music]] is extremely catchy and something to climb to. Which helps since you'll be running away from hands, babies, and everything in between while it plays. The rest of the bosses, [[spoiler: except for the TrueFinalBoss,]] get [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YC8SUzy1w2I Woman's Hand]], which is all about cranking up the NightmareFuel, [[spoiler: especially during the Shadow of Vincent fight.]]
