''Xenoblade'' contains music composed by YokoShimomura, ACE+, Manami Kiyota, and YasunoriMitsuda (for the ending theme). [[SugarWiki/AwesomeMusic It works]]. We could easily say the entire soundtrack. But if we get specific:
* The [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nNR-wsFAfiU Main Theme]]. It's used in-game during the WhamEpisode on Prison Island [[spoiler: when Fiora is revealed to be alive as a Face Mechon. The music is ''perfectly timed'' to what is happening on screen, reaching its crescendo just as Fiora turns to leave a confused and heartbroken Shulk behind. And to top it off? The main theme is a remix of Shulk and Fiora's shared leitmotif. It was ''made'' for that scene.]] This theme became an instant classic, and it's considered one of, if not THE absolute best tracks of YokoShimomura's in her entire career. [[VideoGame/StreetFighterII Let that]] [[Franchise/KingdomHearts sink in]] [[VideoGame/MarioAndLuigi for a]] [[VideoGame/WorldOfMana moment]]...
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MUKzFYUGbg0 "Time to Fight!"]] deserves a special mention. YokoShimomura keeps showing what she's made of.
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BD5AewuKJV4 "Searching Glance"]] and [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YUs96ooIyXU "Pursuit of the Enemy"]].
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=p45gdP2OKmU "Field of the Machinae"]].
* The [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0FkRenJs0N4 first prologue theme]] sets [[ActionPrologue the mood]] quite nicely, but [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8hnpPXJsN3E the second]] gets special credit by taking the Main Theme mentioned above and making a fast-paced battle remix out of it.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AkCu25uCUPI "Gaur Plains"]]. Biggest EarWorm in a Nintendo game since [[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaOcarinaOfTime "Gerudo Valley"]]!
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=V4vCEHpv6Hg "You Will Know Our Names"/"Those Who Bear Their Name"]]. It starts up whenever you fight a [[BossInMookClothing Unique Monster]], so when you hear it, asses ''will'' be kicked. Just hope that it's your party doing the kicking.
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KJsWEY6PGVQ Now available]] as an eight-bit remix. Somehow it sounds even more awesome.
* The track for the [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=D8kQhmnbzW0 Central Factory]] deserves mention, for the rhythmic beat and the bass! It suits the look of the area perfectly.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9BvWPzAg8Ig "Satorl, the Shimmering Marsh (Night)"]].
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B0DE5zyRI6U "Unfinished Battle"]]. Once again, YokoShimomura showing off.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nCclUgQk1Lk "Mechanical Rhythm"]]. The battle theme you get for the Mechonis Arm and Mechonis itself, it appears to be made up, appropriately, of snippets from other songs, including the boss theme and Gaur Plains, all melded seamlessly together.
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jUOlwz4N7pw "Irregular Bounce".]]
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9iPQP7aDe_Y "Beyond the Sky"]]. YasunoriMitsuda, of ''VideoGame/ChronoTrigger'' fame, came to work on just this one song.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JS7XVMNNZI8 "One Who Gets In Our Way"]] is the most epic. Boss. Battle Theme. EVER!!
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SqdMfyc2p_4 "Daily Life"]] is aptly named, and a fitting interlude piece for the game's lighter, softer moments.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QCG0xxojJYs "The Awakening of the Giant".]]
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G2OGYMSfDfM "Zanza".]]
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yWnTwlH0DNc "Agni]][[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AHOHWdgXHDo ratha".]]
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HIrjgE2-C-s "Tragic Decision".]]
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HAW4xlbyu28 "Engage the Enemy"]], the closest thing this game has to a victory theme. It plays pretty much whenever something badass is happening during a cutscene, from Shulk learning a new Monado power to the party delivering the [[CoupDeGraceCutscene coup de grace]] on the boss they were just fighting.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-lK5wulOmGE "To the Last Battle"]], the last dungeon's theme [[spoiler: depicting in traditional "Xeno" fashion a band of heroes storming God's backyard, swords drawn and guns blazing,]] which manages to be both bombastic and somewhat melancholic.
