''Xenoblade'' contains music composed by Creator/YokoShimomura, ACE+, Manami Kiyota, and Creator/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 Yoko Shimomura'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. Yoko Shimomura 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=6Dy74NOzcS8 "Gaur Plains"]]. Good luck getting it out of your head after playing through the game. When the 3DS version was released, this track became the background music for the Nintendo eShop.
* [[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. [[spoiler: It's even more awesome when it plays whilst you fight Disciple Dickson, the ''penultimate boss of the game.'']]
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KJsWEY6PGVQ Now available]] as an eight-bit remix. Somehow it sounds even more awesome.
** If Shulk were a {{Franchise/Pokemon}} trainer, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xbvA8H0MoCg this]] would be his battle theme.
** If there was a version of Xenoblade with a [[WesternAnimation/{{MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic}} My Little Pony]] setting, [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qbOn-A5R6mw this]] would very much be the ponified counterpart of the song along with the show's theme into the song.
* 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, Yoko Shimomura showing off. One of the best battle themes of the game, which you only hear once, and it doesn't even loop. Despite that, ''everyone'' remembers that track, for good reason. It is that good.
* [[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"]]. Creator/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=Nsy9J01Mb0I "The Awakening of the Giant".]]
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6vGoYldAUJQ "Into the World of Zanza".]]
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G2OGYMSfDfM "Zanza".]]
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ug6B7c_Xut8 "The God-Slaying Sword",]] [[spoiler: the final boss theme.]]
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v4okjPckZa0 Imperial Capital Agniratha]] is beautifully somber and perfectly suits the ambiance of the once great capital, which has long since been [[spoiler: abandoned]]. The rendition that plays [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0pdCgnnudy8 at night]] makes it even more so.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HIrjgE2-C-s "Tragic Decision".]]
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QYb_4RSySPI Snowy Valak Mountain - Night.]]
* [[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.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TyXaS4OO5VM Parting, And...]] which notably plays [[spoiler:when Shulk becomes a god at the end of the game and changes the destiny of the universe.]]
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IqWwU9_gf3s While I think...]], a very somber track that plays for a few of either the most SugarWiki/{{Heartwarming|Moments}} or [[TearJerker tear-jerking]] moments in the game.
