Awesome Music / Guilty Gear

Guilty Gear is Awesome Music incarnate.

    open/close all folders 

    Guilty Gear: The Missing Link 
The first game in the series has undistilled RAW Rock, and it's still awesome.

    Guilty Gear X: By Your Side 
The second game in the series now features distilled rock music. (Note: in its original arcade release it had synthetised music instead of pre-recorded. Not that it was bad. The ones linked below are from the Hard Rock Tracks version of the console versions.)

    Guilty Gear XX/X2: The Midnight Carnival 
The tracks from the third game in the series are the ones everybody is most familiar with.

    XX/X2 Korean versions 
Note: The soundtrack is composed by famous K-pop star Shin Hae Chul.

    Guilty Gear Slash/Accent Core 
  • The new intro Launch Out.
  • While composed by Masaomi Kikuchi (who already had scored some tunes in Isuka) instead of Daisuke Ishiwatari Keep in Gates, the theme of Canon Immigrant A.B.A. is still good in its own right.
  • Get Down To Business, the theme of Order Sol. This theme screams "You are about to get royally fucked up." Then it turns into something out of a western tavern-brawl scene. It came back at GGxBB Music Live 2011, and the new rendition is incredibly groovy.
  • And finally, the Order Sol vs. Ky theme Keep The Flag Flying.

    Guilty Gear Isuka 
The Spin-Off game, while very unbalanced, still got awesome music. In addition to the series main composer Daisuke Ishiwatari, there also Tetsuya Ohuchi and Yoshino Kusano, who scored various menu themes and other misc. music, and Masaomi Kikuchi, who scored the A.B.A. theme and half of the Boost mode themes.

    Guilty Gear 2: Overture 

    Guilty Gear Xrd 
  • Give Me a Break, Sol's new theme. Thumbs up for the nod to his old theme at the end!
  • Magnolia Éclair, Ky's new theme, now with more Judas Priest.
  • Starry Story, May's new theme.
  • The Lily of Steel, Millia's new theme, showing another side of her personality.
  • Black Blank blah-blah-blah, Zato's new theme, is not menacing as Feel a Fear, but don't doubt that it's still awesome.
  • Engage, Potemkin's new theme, just screams Patriotic Fervor.
  • Flash Hider, Chipp's new theme still rocks and his attitude remains.
  • Destructive Goodwill, Faust's new theme, pure madness.
  • A Slow Waker, Axl's new theme.
  • Call Shot, Venom's new theme.
  • Jack-a-Dandy, Slayer's new theme.
  • Dirty Drive, I-no's new theme, the riff adds to the Evil Is Sexy vibe.
  • Does the Sheep Count the Sheep?, Bedman's theme.
  • Ramlethal Valentine's theme Diva of Despair, which contains elements from "Diva" and "The Mask Does Not Laugh".
  • Sin's new theme, Just do it.
  • Cute Moeblob Elphelt Valentine's theme Marionette. While awesome, it has a tragic feeling to it, which is seemingly odd. That is, if you haven't found out what becomes of her in the ending of Story Mode.
  • Leo's theme, Stolz.
  • The new Sol Vs. Ky theme, Reunion.
  • The new theme for Millia Vs. Zato, The Spider's Thread (Do You Know?).
  • The new Assassin's Guild theme, When Life Comes.
  • The new Mirror Match theme, Bump.
  • Hear the acoustic sweetness that is the title theme, Django django by Norichika Sato.
  • Outrage's singer Naoki Hashimoto stepped onto the mic for the vocal tracks of Xrd. Fitting that a Metal singer would take part in a Metal soundtrack. Needless to say, Daisuke's music benefited from this:
    • When the first trailer for Guilty Gear Xrd came out, it had one kick-ass piece of music to add to this list: Heavy Day. The full version is out on iTunes and Amazon...and it. Is. GLORIOUS.
    • Also in story mode is Dice for when Sol and That Man work together to bring down the Cradle's shields.
    • The Arcade ending credits theme, Lily, basically one big tribute to Queen as if Freddie Mercury rose from his grave for one last concert with his bandmates.
    • Sol's Dragon Install now has its own face-meltingly metal theme, "Ride the Fire!", and it all starts with "LET IT OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOUT!"
    • The Home Release of Xrd gave us Big Blast Sonic, with a Metal Scream: GET DOWN TO ROCK!click me 
    • The music which plays for Johnny's tag-team with Leo against Bedman in Story Mode, Storyteller.
    • The Console Version ending credits theme, Icarus, is also a huge homage to Queen.
    • Buying the PC version of -SIGN- within the first month gives players a special present: the full version of the opening theme of -REVELATOR-. Ladies and gentlemen, you Wanna be Crazy?
  • Original Bet, Johnny's new theme. Slow, pulse-pounding drums and a catchy tune give the song a very casual feel to it. Perfectly fitting for Johnny.
  • Juno, Jack-O's theme. A playful, celebratory song which perfectly captures Jack-O's whimsical personality.
  • Bao Babel Nose, Jam's new theme. Much like its predecessor, it combines energetic hard rock with a distinct Chinese flair to it, and even has a few nods to the original Babel Nose.
  • The Tuner, Kum Haehyun's theme. Slow, pulse-pounding, and dual-toned, and almost sounds like something that you would hear in Fist Of The North Star: Twin Blue Stars Of Judgment. Yep, fits Haehyun to a T.
  • TSUKI NO SHIHAI (The Moon's Domination), Raven's theme. A fitting sequel to "Worthless as the Sun Above the Clouds". As befitting Raven, it's a death metal number with lyrics, this time from Naoki Hashimoto.
  • One Dawn, Dizzy's theme. Much like its predecessor "Awe of She", the theme starts off soft, but gradually grows into the usual Epic Rocking. Unlike the original, however, this is a more uplifting, beautiful symphony rather than a mysterious and somewhat tragic one.
  • For the first time since the original XX, there is now a theme for the final boss of each characters' Episode Mode, which is a powered-up version of your character's rival. Fittingly, the song's name is Sky Should be High. Now with Vocal Version.
  • "Lily" was a great song but for -REVELATOR-, we get a new Arcade Mode ending theme: Freesia.
  • Baiken is back in action, and she got a rockin' new theme to go along: -ROKUMON- (Six Coins).
  • Enough is Enough, a rock number mixed with light jazz that you can hear in a fancy restaurant, fits Answer like a glove.


In fewer words, Daisuke Ishiwatari: we love you.
