AwesomeMusic Characters Creator Main Trivia YMMV
Before we had the luxury of enjoying Gust's games, Atelier Viorate had one of the most calming songs for a hometown ever: " Carrot Town's Number One Daughter"
From the original : Disgaea "Lord Laharl's Hymn" and "Invasion from Within".
For a depressing theme, "Sorrowful Angel" is perfect for this.
"Ah, My wonderful life", the song of Vyer's fabulous ending, with a distinct opera flavor. There's also "Etna Boogie" and "Do Your Best, Girl". On the hot blooded front we have: Anthem of Braves, March of the Planet Earth, and of course the spirit of rivalry condensed into musical form, the greatest song in the game, War Comrade the anthem of the great Kurtis.
The anime soundtrack definitely deserves a spot here with much of the above music beautifully arranged, including "March of the Planet Earth", "Disgaea~Climax", and "Red Moon~Strings Night". A few of the new songs deserve mention as well, particularly "Heroes Who Deserve Our Love" and "Sad Combatant".
pretty much has an Awesome Soul Nomad & the World Eaters Soundtrack, but four songs that stand out particularly are "The Last Supper", "Crying for the Dark Sky", "Crash Landing", and "Rock'n Rocks". The fact that these songs accompany some of the game's most epic moments (being the themes of the titular World Eaters, plus Gig's Theme Music Power-Up) merely adds to their awesomeness.
Maiden of Light", the intro to . See also the La Pucelle Tactics Extended Arranged Version.
Nefertiti and STIGMATA from Gust's Atelier Iris spin-off .
Mana Khemia Crystalized (yes, only one l) has an insanely catchy beat. And Disruptor is one of the most epic non-boss battle themes to exist (despite the undercurrent of slight melancholy...?).
Have some vocal Nefertiti.
And from the sequel we have these three gems. (Chaotic Moon, Roar of Delirium and Sacred Saber respectively)
The op also count
Similarly, the first game had a few pretty memorable but mellow songs toward the beginning, especially the Atelier Iris City of Kavoc theme, but it was the last boss music that kicked an incredible amount of ass (especially since it had been hinted to musically at several points earlier in the game!) Japanese indie music demigod S.S.H. liked the song so much he felt compelled to make it .
even better Capping off -related awesome songs, AI3 didn't have too many awesome songs in the game, but Atelier Iris the opening song is made of JAM Project-level power-metal win.
Cloud Buster, Storm Bringer, Sunshine Street, Silver Woods and The Story of Gramps from .
Atelier Annie Not to mention Friday and Shiny, the opening and ending themes respectively.
: Disgaea 2 Sinful Rose, the intro.
The full version of Sinful Rose! The instrumental version, which acts as Adell's theme, isn't shabby either.
The very first level of the game has Spread Your Wings. What a great way to start the game too.
"White Tiger". "AKUTAREEEEE!!!" ( Arranged Version)
Beatiful Darkness 05', the Dark World music, is a darker version of A Dark Race Becomes Magnificent from the previous game.
"Prinny My Love", the prinny's own theme! Also "Cyber Dance" and this techno remix of Laharl's hymn.
Even though it's depressing to listen to, the Game Over Music is the best sentimental instrumental version of "Sinful Rose".
And, of course, there's Laharl's boss theme (actually just a remix of Disgaea from the first game, which is an early indication that you are totally fucked.
Also Etna Rock, which, as its name implies, is a rock remix of Etna's theme. Bad. Ass. There's also the bone chilling Holy Mansion, the amazing Song of the Gods, and the totally epic final boss theme, Demon's Trill.
Any and all instances of ninja activity should be accompanied by "Ninja's Dance".
"Sparkle to Become a Star" for the sheer symbolic meaning. This song amplifies a Heartwarming Moment which doubly serves as Adell's definitive Moment Of Awesome. A true trifecta of awesomeness.
And there's "Visual Sensation", which plays in the battles for the chapter leading up to the final boss. Very fitting, especially given that those battles are happening inside a mansion, and the tune has a very elegant feel to it.
"Disgaea Rhapsody", which plays during the battle between The True Overlord Zenon and Laharl.
Sure, the music in the first wasn't that great, but frankly, Ar tonelico "RE=NATION" and "Chronicle Key" made up for it. The cutscene where these two songs are played are the moment that makes the game.
has several awe-inspiring tracks, but special mention goes to Rhapsody - A Musical Adventure "Beauty Castle", the final dungeon theme.
Makai Kingdom :
Disgaea 3 Go, Mao! is a perfect theme to capture his insanity. The instrumental version counts as well.
"Wanderer's Poem", arrange album version.
"Last World" and "DEAD END" are also extremely awesome. (If you listen closely, you'll notice that "DEAD END" is actually a more dramatic version of Wanderer's Poem.)
"Hot Blooded Teachere Raspberyl", a fitting, catchy tune appropriate to the final battle of the Raspberyl story.
"Blue Concerto", especially the arrange version, which manages to be both epic and beautiful.
"Nether Institute Evil Academy" and "A Song For You". "Nether Institute Evil Academy" is well-known for the dance number in it's opening, but the song itself is rather infectious and is reminiscent of , especially toward the end. "A Song For You" differs from most of the The Nightmare Before Christmas Nippon Ichi ending themes by being rather upbeat and Broadway-ish, but that's what makes it one of the most memorable themes.
"Makai Fugue". Best evil sounding song in the Disgaea series.
Also, the "Maritsu Evil Academy Entrance Applicant Recruiting CM Song", also known as the game over theme. Never has there been a more chipper and bouncy song about the fact that you just got your ass handed to you. The song is very likely making fun of you for losing, given the game it's from.
"Rock Crystal", a great tune for any battle.
Phantom Brave has a very good soundtrack all around, but in particular, "Violent Emotion" and "R&R Junkiee" pretty much kick ass with a flourish, and Friend is exceptionally beautiful.
Finally, Asagi gets her own spot in the limelight! The damn inspiring "Asagi, GO Fight!!", which plays at the end of Asagi Wars during the final boss battle and her
Heroic Sacrifice. In , we have the Zettai Hero Project "Unlosing Ranger's Theme Song", possibly the most Hot-Blooded song of any Nippon Ichi game. It's variants also deserve special mention, particularly the Mecha version and the Last Boss version.
: Oh my Cla Dun Zenon are they good.
Knight of a Foreign Country. The bagpipes and the rock really makes this soundtrack stand out from the other music in the soundtrack.
Sadly, there isn't a link yet for this one but the Final Boss theme, The Explosion, begins with a calm piano piece before eventually, just as the name implies, explodes into a massive and epic metal-jazz hybrid.
Relinquished Despair is a very ominous and evil soundtrack. Granted, this song plays during the fight with the
Death Glutton BLACK. METALLIC. DRAGON. Title aside, it starts very mysterious and very evil sounding track. Then it starts building up, and it goes into a heavy metal carnage, fitting ONLY for an epic Disgaea final boss fight.
Disgaea Dimension 2: pretty much rivals The Guided Fate Paradox Soul Nomad for Awesome Soundtrack, making great use of Ominous Latin Chanting.
has a haunting yet whimsical soundtrack befitting a game centered around the antics of witches.
The Witch And The Hundred Knight Witch's Temptation, the main menu theme. It's a dark fairytale-style theme that pretty much sums up the entire game in sound form.
HIGH FIVE, the normal boss theme. Unlike most other themes in the game this one uses an electric guitar to increase the intensity of the music.
One Hundred Roses, the boss theme when fighting witches and other powerful opponents.
Dear Metallia, which plays when Metallia busts into Brockenturm Tower and during the fight against Lily and Purple Peel, making the moment all the more awesome.
