Devil May Cry 1
- "Legendary Battle", Mudnus' first boss theme. It really gets your blood pumping for the final boss.
- "Ultraviolet", the theme of Nelo Angelo. From symphonic organs to rock and then back, it's the perfect theme for an earnestly strong opponent that you face four missions into the game. "Super Ultraviolet", the alternate version, isn't too bad either.
- "Trish's Theme" is a beautiful piece, really fitting for the development Dante goes through at that point in the game. Its partner, Eva's Theme fits for just about the same reason.
- "Statue Of Time, the Divinity Statue's theme, an almost mystical sounding theme to accompany you buying items and abilities.
- Phantom's theme is yet another winner in the boss theme department.
- Capping off the game overall comes Dante and Trish: Seeds Of Love, a credits theme that starts off with the rock and flare of the battle and boss themes before transitioning to a vocal variation of Eva and Trish's theme.
Devil May Cry 2
- "Darkness Instinct," the theme of the suitably terrifying Argosax the Chaos manages to be both scary and AWESOME. Shortly following it, "Ragnarok", the final boss theme, packs emotion, awesomeness, and just overall sounds incredible.
- Blasphemy just screams Very Definitely Final Dungeon.
- There's plenty of winners in the cutscene department too, including "Please Kill Me, Chaotic Gloria and Jackpot!
- While the boss itself is laughable for many a reason, The Infested Chopper's theme is surprisingly good.
- Nefasturris' theme, Evil Tower, is actually an extended version of the game's already awesome intro theme, Dance With The Devils.
- Shoot The Works, the second of Dante's regular battle themes, keeps the hard rocking of the first game and turns it up several notches
- After completing both Dante and Lucia's campaigns, you're allowed to listen to Heads Or Tails, a song rather similar to that of Seeds of Love from the original game: Starting off hard rocking but breaking down into something much more mystical.
Devil May Cry 3
- "Devils Never Cry", the game's main theme, snippets of which play throughout the game. It has become a Bootstrapped Leitmotif for Dante outside of his series, but nobody is complaining. It's that iconic.
- "Dante's Office (7 Hells Battle)" is the perfect track to get you pumped for a hyperkinetic battle in the Devil May Cry office. Especially considering it's the opening stage, the game really starts off with a bang.
- "Taste the Blood and Divine Hate, the game's battle themes are among the best of the whole franchise.
- Vergil gets his own remixes of both tracks, and they continue to kick ass.
- "Taste the Blood" crosses over with both Moment of Awesome and Funny Moments when Dante gets the Nevan weapon—a literal electric guitar—and tests it out by performing a hilariously over-the-top rendition of the aforementioned song. Complete with sounds of an audience cheering (though no actual audience is seen) and stage pyrotechnics.
Devil May Cry 4
- "The Time Has Come", Nero's battle theme, and by association, "Shall Never Surrender", the closing credits. "The Time has Come", being a battle theme, is very in tone with the music of the past games, whereas the second half, "Shall Never Surrender", is more soothing, almost displaying how Nero's come to terms with his demonic side, as has Kyrie, and his relationship with Dante being much closer than at the start of the game.
- "Blackened Angel" and "Forza del Destino", Dante's boss themes. The first one helps establish Dante's status as The Dreaded, who only plays around with Nero because it amuses him. "Forza del Destino" plays during the second battle, where Dante stops pulling his punches and becomes the ultimate test of Nero's mettle before confronting Sanctus.
- "Lock and Load (Blackened Angel mix)", Dante's battle theme. A remix of the battle theme from DMC 1, it adds lyrics from "Blackened Angel" to show that Dante has grown stronger and wiser during the time between two games while still retaining his laid-back outlook.
- "Sworn Through Swords", the theme of Berial, would fit right in with the OST of the third game. But then, the vocals ARE by Shaun Mc Pherson, vocalist of the tracks in said game.
- "Swipe of Sword" is almost the successor to the original game's "Ultraviolet".
