!!!From specific franchises

[[folder:Chrono Trigger remixes]]
* Darangen's "Atonement" ([[ stream]]/[[ download]]), a howling metal remix of the always-popular "[[VideoGame/ChronoTrigger Battle with Magus]]" with a twist.
* [[ The Masamune]] by ellywu2 from the "Chrono Symphonic" album. An awesome mix of "Frog's' Theme", it really gives you the feeling that you gotta ''earn'' that sword of awesome power. A shame it's not up on the main site.
* ''Fight for Our Future" (Battle 1) is freakin' awesome, and cranks the awesome from the original ([[ stream]]/[[ download]]).
* Star Salzman's "The Incredible Singing Robot" ([[ stream]]/[[ download]] takes "Robo's Theme" and turns it into an ImageSong. And it is great!
* Star Salzman also made the rather awesome and badass remix of "Battle with Magus" called "Black Wind Rising"--it begins with slow orchestral, but then after an amazing "Duel of the Fates" build-up (complete with ominous choir) the acoustics cut in ([[ stream]]/[[ download]]).
* "The Place We Knew", Reuben Kee and pixietricks' beautiful piano ballad adaptation of [[VideoGame/ChronoTrigger "To Far Away Times"]] has brought more than one troper to ManlyTears ([[ stream]]/[[ download]]).
* Lots of people love the "Corridors of Time" theme, so it only makes sense that it'd be remixed. Two particular mixes of note are "Corrupter of Time" ([[ stream]]/[[ download]]) by Joren de Bruin & Tweek, and "Time Warp Mix" ([[ stream]]/[[ download]]) by The Vagrance. The first being a hard rock mix, the second being pure [=DnB=]. Both are easy to get lost in and are great tunes. Check 'em out.
* From ''Chrono Symphonic'', courtesy of [=DarkeSword=], "Blue Skies Over Guardia", the almost literally uplifting remix of "Guardia Millennial Fair". It takes what was originally a cute, folksy tune and turns it into something hopeful, epic, and awe-inspiring. ([[ stream]]/[[ download]])
* "Kingdom Trial" is morphed by Zircon into a five-minute piece which, in the words of both OCR's judges and some of its commenters, is a Danny Elfman-esque, creepily demonic tune with shades of Kefka's theme from FFVI that also brings to mind the Guardia soldiers chasing Crono and company through the castle a la Scooby-Doo. "Calamitous Judgment" ([[ stream]]/[[ download]]).
* [=LuIzA's=] [[ "... And in Her Self-Loathing and Despair, She Found Wrath"]] is a remix of Schala's theme, turning an ethereal, mysterious song into a grinding heavy-metal dirge that builds up only to restrain itself momentarily--then it explodes into the finale.

[[folder:Final Fantasy remixes]]
* Reuben Kee's "Ascension to Cosmo Canyon" ([[ stream]]/[[ download]]), one of the greatest remixes ever of one of ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyVII'''s best tracks.
* There's also the rocked out version by Sixto Sounds and zircon, "Lunatic Moon" ([[ stream]]/[[ download]]).
* The award for "most completely different in mood, instrumentation, and presentation" remix has to go to "Nanaki Searches for Truth" by Dev--taken from "It's Difficult to Stand on Both Feet, Isn't It?". That's right, the silly, twangy song which plays when the party is in disguise on the boat from Junon to Costa del Sol...only here it has become a deep, powerful, LonelyPianoPiece with heartbreaking strings that is at once haunting, wistful, pensive, depressing, and solemn. Despite its source it seems to make a wonderful encapsulation of Red XIII's relationship with his father. ([[ stream]]/[[ download]])
* A brilliant remix by Darangen, "Finally Home", takes the "Temple of Chaos" music from ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyI'' and turns it into, of all things, credits music. And it works really well, actually ([[ stream]]/[[ download]]).
* Darangen had made a mix of the same song a year before hand known as "Warriors of Light", which is just as awesome. It turns the song into a trumphant battle type of background. Perhaps not better, but definitely still awesome ([[ stream]]/[[ download]]).
* Newcomer katethegreat19 made an excellent first impression with her lyrical version of ''[[VideoGame/FinalFantasyIX FFIX]]'''s "Rose of May". Note that all the vocals ''and'' the harp, guitar, drum, and recorder are all done by her. ([[ stream]]/[[ download]]).
* "Messenger in the Key of Black", a remix of ''Final Fantasy IX'''s Dark Messenger. Nex and lightwarmth managed to turn the theme into a grand piano piece that still manages to fit Kuja to a tee ([[ stream]]/[[ download]]).
* "The Dark World (Crystal Abyss Mix)" by Ubik takes the VeryDefinitelyFinalDungeon theme from ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyIII'' and turns it from a march of hope and readiness to fight into a creepy and yet interesting tune. Almost like saying, "Okay, we're on our way to fight the Cloud of Darkness! We gotta save both worlds! ...Good god I hope she doesn't murder us." ([[ stream]]/[[ download]]).
* "The Crossroads" by Jovette Rivera is an epic J-Pop/Hard Rock remix of "Cid's Theme" from ''Final Fantasy VII'' ([[ stream]]/[[ download]]).
* Also from ''Final Fantasy VII'', this fantastic remix called "Hydrophone Breakdown" by [=JigginJonT=]. It's a song which changes directly from strong rhythmic sections to soft melodies and vice versa, while having an absolutely beautiful tune, somewhat like the ones from The Wingless ([[ stream]]/[[ download]]).
* From the [=FFVII=] Voices of the Lifestream album, [[ "Beginning of the End"]]. A remix [=bLiNd=] made of the already kickass song "Birth of a God". Seriously, [=OverClocked=], get this stuff up on your main site!
* From the ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyIV'' album:
** "Eminense Grise" ([[ stream]]/[[ download]]), a vocal mix of "Another Moon" with sinister overtones and a haunting mood, is followed by [[ "Genesis of Destruction"]], turning the Zeromus battle music into a ''rock opera'' of kickassery. It even got a second version with [[,%20lisabela,%20audio%20fidelity%5d.mp3 Phantom of the Zeromus]]. ''Echoes of Betrayal, Light of Redemption'', folks.
** In addition to the Finale, there's also "Evoking the Dawn" ([[ stream]]/[[ download]]), a beautiful piano arrangement of the Prelude and Rydia's theme. Then on the opposite side of the spectrum is "Treason" ([[ stream]]/[[ download]]), which takes the Four Fiends battle music and turns it into a thrasher-metal masterpiece.
** There's also [[ "Metal Mage"]], as well as [[ "Almost Fell for the Trojan"]], which is a beautiful and mood shifting remix of "Troian Beauty".
** "Kind of Green" is the last track, a smooth jazzy take on Rydia. ([[ stream]]/[[ download]]).
** "Fighting for Tomorrow", which turns the Fabul theme into a kickass battle theme. It's like a musical recreation of the whole siege from the game.
** As well as [[ "Rhymes with Elixir]], a [[TheLonelyIsland Lonely Island]]-esque parody rap song with multiple SugarWiki/FunnyMoments.
* The two remixes of "Terra's Theme" from ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyVI'' are the explosive heavy metal "Terra in Black" (by Ailsean) ([[ stream]]/[[ download]]) and the quiet, somber piano piece "Death on the Snowfield" (by [=AmIEviL=]) ([[ stream]]/[[ download]]).
* There's also "Squaresoft Variation", done by none other than Music/JeremySoule. ([[ stream]]/[[ download]]).
* Apparently, Terra's Theme has been [[FanNickname dubbed]] the "[[Music/LynyrdSkynyrd Free Bird]]" of [[ fan remixes]]!
* "Lake in Ontario?" ([[ stream]]/[[ download]]) a remix of the ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyX'' song "Silence Before the Storm" by ilp0 makes you totally wanna take a trip into your own mind.
* Mazedude remixed ''Final Fantasy IV'''s "Another Moon", leading to "Surface of the Moon" ([[ stream]]/[[ download]]), which sounds like it would be playing in a terrifying bad ending to a SciFi game.
* Also from ''IV'', Hyadain's "[[ Four Friends of the Elements]]", from "The Dreadful Fight". A vocal mix, [[VillainSong sung by the Four Fiends]]... [[spoiler: and Golbez.]]
* "Cantata for Dancing: Part I" ([[ stream]]/[[ download]]) and "Part II" ([[ stream]]/[[ download]]) are absolutely ''epic'' mixes of [[VideoGame/FinalFantasyVI "Dancing Mad"]]. OminousLatinChanting ahoy!
** Similarly there's [[ Prancing Dad]] by Tony Dickenson. It's a remix of [[VideoGame/FinalFantasyVI "Dancing Mad"]] with chanting similar/inspired by [[AwesomeMusic/FinalFantasy One]] [[OneWingedAngel Winged]] [[VideoGame/FinalFantasyVII Angel]] and Music/DreamTheater [[EpicRocking style soloing]].
* From the ''Final Fantasy VI'' album ''Balance and Ruin'', take the opera tunes from ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyVI'', add a big dose of {{Music/Queen}}'s "Bohemian Rhapsody", and turn Draco and Maria into StarCrossedLovers ŕ la Theatre/RomeoAndJuliet, and what you get is the epic rock opera "The Impresario" ([[ stream]]/[[ download]]). In case that isn't enough for you, consider that Creator/NobuoUematsu's reaction to hearing this track was saying he needed to buy the creators a beer. ApprovalOfGod, folks.
* Also off ''Balance and Ruin'' is the super catchy remix of Phantom Train, [[ Gobble, Snarf, Snap.]]
* Shnabubula and Prince Of Darkness's Jazz/Blues Fusion cover of Cyan/Cayenne's Theme, [[ The Hot Pink Of Blues]].

[[folder:The Legend of Zelda remixes]]
* Disco Dan's "Triforce Majeure" ([[ stream]]/[[ download]]), ''Franchise/TheLegendOfZelda'''s Hyrule Castle theme done orchestral/techno style.
* "[[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaLinksAwakening Braving Tal Tal Heights]]" ([[ stream]]/[[ download]]), another of Dan's ''Zelda'' remixes.
* Another brilliant mixer, [=DarkeSword=], decided the Legendary Hero theme from ''[[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaTheWindWaker Wind Waker]]'' was not good enough. So he did his own version called "Ancient Hero" ([[ stream]]/[[ download]]).
* Though his name is comparatively mundane, Tyler Heath took the minimal ocarina tunes "Bolero of Fire", "Requiem of Spirit", and "The Song of Storms" (or "Windmill Hut") from ''[[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaOcarinaOfTime Ocarina of Time]]'' and created the incredible "A Storm in the Desert" ([[ stream]]/[[ download]]).
* Variations on the main theme: "[[ A Fate Preordained]]" by LindsayAnne Klemm, a mellow, tranquil rendition that wouldn't sound out of place in the ''LordOfTheRings'', "[[ A Hero's Legacy]]" by Evan Pattison aka Starblaze, a sweeping, epic rendition perfect for dramatic scenes, and "[[ Fear And Sufferance]]" by K. Praslowicz, an electric guitar rendition that must be heard to be believed.
* Another ''Zelda'' track: "[[ Pachelbel's Ganon]]" by djpretzel, a heavy, yet soothing reimagining of Zelda's Lullaby.
* Darengan's "Falling Back" ([[ stream]]/[[ download]]). The Gerudo Valley theme is a perennial favorite for remixing, and by adding a message to the awesome guitar riffs the song can only be improved.
* Thunderstruck. A remix of the Song of Storms from Big Giant Circles and some1namedjeff for the 25YearLegend Indie Tribute album, the song incorporates environmental sounds and pure instrumental madness, sweeping through the iconic ocarina tune, with some manic solo segments and just general awesomeness. There's a reason this is the remix track that has the most views on their Youtube account. ([[ stream]]/[[ download]]).
* Preenus's (collab name for Jake Kaufman and Snappleman) only remix on the site, "Full Mast" ([[ stream]]/[[ download]]). Epic ''Pirates of the Caribbean'' mixed with ''Riverdance'' mixed with bombastic orchestral rock and you get this 5+ minute take on the Title music, Ancient Hero and Ocean [=BGMs=] from ''[[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaTheWindWaker Wind Waker]]''.

[[folder:Mega Man remixes]]
* "Nuclear Flash" by Sixto Sounds and zircon. Thought Flash Man's theme from ''VideoGame/MegaMan2'' wasn't intense enough? Here's your solution ([[ stream]]/[[ download]]).
* [=AkumajoBelmont=]'s [[ "For You"]] has to be one of the most unique takes on "Wily Stage 1" from ''Mega Man 2''.
* "Blue Lightning", another remix by Disco Dan! This turns the "Title" theme of ''VideoGame/MegaMan3'' into a slower paced and yet still totally awesome version of itself. ([[ stream]]/[[ download]]).
* And while we're talking about the Title theme of ''Mega Man 3'', "The Passing of the Blue Crown" also manages to be one freaking awesome remix of the theme. ([[ stream]]/[[ download]]).
* Trenthian's "Bombin' Shade of Blue" takes Shademan's music from ''VideoGame/MegaMan 7'' and makes it ''swing'' ([[ stream]]/ [[ download]]).
* Sir Jordanius's first remix, "[[ Smooth as Honey]]", starts out as a muffled remix of Hornet Man's theme in ''[[VideoGame/MegaMan Mega Man 9]]''. Then the funk kicks in.
* "Stranger in the Desert" ([[ stream]]/[[ download]]), another piece by [=DarkeSword=]. This one takes the "Departure" and "For Endless Fight II" songs from ''VideoGame/MegaManZero 2'' and puts 'em together into a dramatic piece. Very fitting for Zero.
* Neblix and AMT's mashup of the "Wily Stage 1" and "Flash Man Stage", [[ Light Your Way]], is an epic remix of the two which the remixers fully admit was patterned after Witchcraft by drum and bass/rock band {{Pendulum}}.

[[folder:Metroid remixes]]
* bLiNd in general is fantastic, but his trance remix of the green Brinstar music from ''Super VideoGame/{{Metroid}}'', "Jade Catacombs", is very well done ([[ stream]] / [[ download]]).
* The Wingless's "One Girl in All the World", a fantastic take on the "Red Brinstar" music from ''Super Metroid''. ([[ stream]]/[[ download]]).
* "All the World in One Girl", also by The Wingless, is the jazzed-up counterpart to the above. Yes, it's the credits music for ''WebAnimation/{{Haloid}}'' ([[ stream]]/[[ download]]).
* zircon and pixietricks are two [=ReMixers=] to know. See how they handle ''Metroid'''s Maridia music in "Kindred" ([[ stream]]/[[ download]]).
* From the same album (''Reserve Tank - [=VARIAtions=]''), there's also "In Your Prime", a great mix of the Brinstar music by Big Giant Circles ([[ stream]]/[[ download]]).
* Children of the Monkey Machine make creepy, atmospheric music. For example, "Drowned in Exile", his take on ''Super Metroid'''s already ominous Maridia 2 music ([[ stream]]/[[ download]]).
* The ''Heroes vs. Villains'' album features "The Bounty of a Brain" ([[ stream]]/[[ download]]), which is four minutes of pure awesome.

[[folder:Sonic the Hedgehog remixes]]
* [=DarkeSword=] is awesome, Sixto Sounds is awesome, so what do you get when you put 'em together? A high octane remix of course! This being the case for [[ "Metamorphic Rock"]]. A sweet remix of "Green Hill Zone", "Marble Zone", and "Final Zone" from ''VideoGame/SonicTheHedgehog''.
* On the side of ''[[VideoGame/SonicTheHedgehog2 Sonic 2]]'' [=ReMixes=] there's "Trippin' on Ecstacy" by [=PxFury=]. Making the Robotnik Battle theme sound really... [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin trippy]] ([[ stream]]/[[ download]]).
* And representing [[VideoGame/Sonic3AndKnuckles the third game]], "Scrambled Eggman" gives the boss battle theme an amazing makeover ([[ stream]]/[[ download]]).
* "The Doomsday" by [=SnappleMan=], Ashane, and norg (as seen on the ''Sonic 3'' album ''Project Chaos'') freaking rocks and makes the Doomsday Zone theme from Sonic 3 & Knuckles even ''more'' awesome. A very big shame it's not on the main site ([[ stream]]/[[,%20Ashane,%20norg%20-%20The%20Doomsday%20(Doomsday%20Zone).mp3 download]]).
* "Knuckleduster" gives the Marble Garden Zone theme a nice set of lyrics ([[ stream]]/[[ download]]).
* Also from ''Sonic 3 & Knuckles'', Jivemaster's "Lava Reach" takes the Lava Reef Zone themes' status as SugarWiki/AwesomeMusic UpToEleven. ([[ stream]]/[[ download]])
* How about some ''[[VideoGame/SonicTheHedgehogTripleTrouble Sonic: Triple Trouble]]''? "A New Ray of Light" by Sadorf and [=Sir_NutS=] ([[ stream]]/[[ download]]).
* José the Bronx Rican made his own version of Knuckles's theme from ''VideoGame/SonicAdventure'' called "Knuckles' Unknown From M.C." This one's a bit more lively, though ([[ stream]]/[[ download]]).
* "Absolution Comes in Dreams" ([[ stream]]/[[ download]]), an acoustic remix of [[VideoGame/SonicTheHedgehog2006 "Dreams of an Absolution"]], with some of the work done by Cyril the Wolf.
* [=McVaffe=]'s take on Ice Cap Zone from ''VideoGame/Sonic3AndKnuckles'', "[[ IceCapped]]", probably started the entire [[Memes/{{Music}} memetic music movement]] of remixing Ice Cap several times.

[[folder:Super Mario Bros. remixes]]
* Sole Signal and Tweek unite to give us a fantastic version of the ''VideoGame/MarioKart64'' credits music, "Day's End" ([[ stream]]/[[ download]]).
* "Devastation's Doorway", an electro-orchestral-epic remix of the Bowser stages from ''VideoGame/SuperMario64'' ([[ stream]]/[[ download]]).
* Another excellent, energetic remix of the same track: [=ParagonX9=]'s "The Alternate Route" ([[ stream]]/[[ download]]).
* Another track from The Wingless is the beautifully soothing "Pearl Song" ([[ stream]]/[[ download]]), which a remix of the "Dire, Dire Docks" music from ''VideoGame/SuperMario64'' (an already-amazing song in its own right).
* ''VideoGame/SuperMarioRPG'': "[[ Mushroom Way Madness]]" by Orkybash, a very jaunty variant on the Mushroom Way and Rose Way themes, and "[[ Leafcutter]]", a reimagining of the Weapons Factory theme courtesy of radiowar, which takes the original and makes it considerably darker and more eerie.
* ''VideoGame/YoshisIsland'': "[[ Crystalline Caverns]]" by [=McVaffe=], quite possibly the loveliest, dreamiest reimagining of the Underground Theme ever.
* ''VideoGame/SuperMarioBros3'': "[[ Battle Rocks]]" by [AmIEviL], an awesome remix of the Hammer Bro battle theme.
* ''VideoGame/SuperMarioBros1'': "[[ Bowser is Pissed]]" by [PriZm], an awesome and downright sinister remix of the original castle theme.


[[folder:Crossover remixes]]
* mv's "A Foray Into Eastern Horizons" is a hypnotic and low-key combination of two themes, one from ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyVII'', the other from ''VideoGame/ChronoTrigger''. The particular pairing is, in retrospect, obvious ([[ stream]]/[[ download]]).
* Who wins when Dhsu sets "[[Franchise/SuperMarioBros Koopa]] vs. [[VideoGame/FinalFantasyVI Kefka]]?" The audience ([[ stream]]/[[ download]]). It starts off as a fairly straightforward piano remix of the ''VideoGame/SuperMarioWorld'' castle theme...until the OminousPipeOrgan kicks in the door with the tail end of "Dancing Mad".
* "Fire Cross" ([[ stream]]/[[ download]]) by [=LuIzA=] takes [[VideoGame/FinalFantasyV "Battle on the Big Bridge"]] and various songs from across the ''Franchise/FinalFantasy'' series, and even ''VideoGame/ChronoTrigger'', and turns it all into a hardcore piece of '''awesome'''.

[[folder:Remixes from action games]]
* "The Souls of Chaos" by [=RoeTaKa=], a remix of (mostly) the already great song "A Way to Nowhere" from ''VideoGame/ChaosLegion'' that stays true to the style of the song. It almost sounds like it's originally from the game itself ([[ stream]]/[[ download]]).
* Think ''VideoGame/GuiltyGear'' music is awesome? ...Well it still is. But "Destroy Movements" by CHIPP Damage and James George is a haunting and subtle remix of "Writhe in Pain (Millia Rage's' Theme)", and it works nicely. May not rock, but that doesn't mean it's still not awesome ([[ stream]]/[[ download]]).
* There's also "Alpha Blade", the trance remix of "Suck a Sage (Chipp Zanuff's Theme)" by Beatdrop ([[ stream]]/[[ download]]).
* "[[Franchise/StreetFighter The Ken Song]]" by jdproject. The lyrics may be a bit tongue-in-cheek, but the guitar is excellent, the vocals are solid, and the tune catchy. Realize your Ken! ([[ stream]]/[[ download]]).
* That's not the only awesome Ken remix. One of the mixes on the ''Super Street Fighter II Turbo HD Remix'' album by [=AE=] and prozax called "Clamato Fever" is totally awesome and rockin'. The kicker? It's the menu theme ([[ stream]]/[[ download]]).
* [=ParagonX9=]'s ''Super VideoGame/DoubleDragon'' "No. 5 (Snapdragon)" ([[ stream]]/[[ download]]) makes excellent energetic fight music.
* Mazedude's "[[VideoGame/RiverCityRansom River City Rammstein]]" ([[ stream]]/[[ download]]). One of the better techno themes. Its heavy beat and fast pace makes it a perfect soundtrack for any fight or beatdown. The title, however, is a bit of misleading; it doesn't really sound like Music/{{Rammstein}}.
* "[[VideoGame/StreetFighterII New Mexican Thunderbird]] [[ stream]]. An awesome spaghetti western remix of T. Hawk's theme from Super Street Fighter II. Especially epic is the tribal chanting towards the end.

[[folder:Remixes from platformers]]
* Vigilante's "Beneath the Surface" ([[ stream]]/[[ download]]), from the fantastic ''Kong in Concert'' project. A mesmerizing remix of the underwater music from ''VideoGame/DonkeyKongCountry''.
* Speaking of ''Kong in Concert'', [=SnappleMan=] made an awesome remix of "Gang-Plank Galleon" called "Thrash the Plank" ([[ stream]]/[[ download]]), adding rocking instruments to the already awesome song.
* Anyone into heavy metal will want to check out goat's contributions. "The Raven", his remix of ''VideoGame/CastlevaniaI'''s "Wicked Child", is a good place to start ([[ stream]]/[[ download]]).
* "Malevolent Mansion" is a kickass drums-and-bass remix of "Mad Monster Mansion" from ''VideoGame/BanjoKazooie''. Crunchy guitar riffs mixed with bombastic synthesizer and percussion work, and by the time the nostalgia-inducing xylophone kicks in, you'll be grinning from ear to ear. Even ''Grant Kirkhope'', the guy who composed the soundtrack for the original game called it "bloody marvelous!" ([[ stream]]/[[ download]])
* [=PrototypeRaptor=] has several decidedly awesome remixes on the site, but one in particular is "Dark Matter" ([[ stream]]/[[ download]]), a remix of the Miracle Matter fight in ''[[VideoGame/Kirby64TheCrystalShards Kirby 64]]''.
* From the VideoGame/{{Kirby}} album ''Rise of the Star'', we got yet another mix by [=DarkeSword=]. This time it's [[ Final Fight ~ Theme of Final Star]]. Again, shame it's not up on the main site.
* "Invertebrate Retreat" is a mellow, almost mournful, hip-hop remix of "Lorenzo's Soil" from ''VideoGame/EarthwormJim 2'', complete with rapping and everything. ([[ stream]]/[[ download]]).
* "[[ Power of the Meat]]". You like ''Super VideoGame/MeatBoy''? Try it with vocals.
* [[ The Life and Death Of Kirby]] is an "Electronica Biography" of said character, and it kicks ass.

[[folder:Remixes from role-playing games]]
* "Endings, Beginnings, and One Hell of a Trip" ([[ stream]]/[[ download]]) is an awesome remix of of the already awesome song "Endings and Beginnings" from ''VideoGame/BreathOfFire IV'' by Another Soundscape. To quote djpretzel:
-->This is excellent, epic synth work, chock full of synth bass, synth pads, and more hot synth lead action than you can shake a stick at. And yet, even with some magnificent solo sequencing arrangement, what takes the mix up a notch is the addition of the dulcimer, which might seem out of place in a largely electronic setting, but which Mattias blends in perfectly against gated percussive and synth fx.
* Likewise, the mix by Gman of "Dance" from ''Breath of Fire II'' called "You Must Dance" ([[ stream]]/[[ download]]) turns the song into a crazy type of trance with some great synth in it. Definitely a song you could dance to.
* "That's What You Get", a mix of "Graceful Assassin" from ''VideoGame/KingdomHeartsChainOfMemories'', enough said. The only thing making this mix awesomer is that it was made by [=DrumUltimA=] and [=MomUltimA=]. That's right, a mother and son remixed this together ([[ stream]]/[[ download]]).
* Speaking of ''Franchise/KingdomHearts'', sephfire made an awesome remix for [[VideoGame/KingdomHearts the original]] called [[ "Above the Rising Falls"]]. As apparently the Hollow Bastion music is just ''that awesome.''
* zircon made a spectacular mix of "Image of Hero" from ''VideoGame/PhantasyStarOnline'' called "Ragol Weather" which honestly does a wonderful job at sounding like the Weather Channel would play it in the background ([[ stream]]/[[ download]]).
* From the ''Franchise/TalesSeries'' album:
** [=CarboHydroM=] and [=LuIzA=]'s fantastic remix of ''VideoGame/TalesOfSymphonia'''s "Fatalize" into "Strike of the Devil's Axes". Takes an already epic piece and adds absolutely face-melting guitar to it, making the piece unbelievably epic ([[ stream]]/[[ download]]).
** [[ The Unholy Wars]] is a remix of the already awesome "Fighting of the Spirit" from ''VideoGame/TalesOfPhantasia'' by Dhsu and Sixto Sounds, which also adds in face-melting instruments after a beautiful piano intro.
** [=PriZm=]'s' mix of "Take Up the Cross" called [[ "Simplified Design"]]. While not face melting like the above two, the song is still totally rockin' and awesome.
** "Go the Distance" is another rocking remix from Sixto Sounds. This time of "I'll go" from ''Dawn of the New World''/''Knight of Ratatosk'' ([[ stream]]/[[ download]]).
* Jewbei did a great trance remix of the title theme from ''VideoGame/TalesOfDestiny''. Be sure to check out "Pretension" ([[ stream]]/[[ download]]).
* One of the remixers working on ''The Missingno. Tracks'', [=ProtoDome=], came out with an extremely catchy medley of ''[[VideoGame/PokemonGoldAndSilver Pokémon Crystal]]'', and sprinkles of nostalgia here and there ([[ stream]]/[[ download]]).
* Big Giant Circles, Sole Signal and Tweek, three artists already mentioned on this page, decided to team up to do a ''VideoGame/JadeEmpire'' remix known as "Global Empire" ([[ stream]]/[[ download]]). A very... interesting, to say the least, remix of "Fury, Hammer, and Tongs" and "Techno Tune (World 2)".
* ''Franchise/WildArms'' has had its share of kickass remixes as well. For example, take "Dové L'Amore" ([[ stream]]/[[ download]]) by Jovette Rivera, remixing "Courage" with some nice Spanish lyrics, turning it into a sort of love song. Also try on "A Ring and a Promise" ([[ stream]]/[[ download]]) by Ashleigh James and [=bLiNd=], giving "Prologue 2" song nice vocals as well, giving it a sort of hopeful feel.
* "Dueling Consoles" ([[ stream]]/[[ download]]) by Shnabubula is a remix of ''VideoGame/SecretOfMana'''s boss theme with a UsefulNotes/ConsoleWars twist. An NES and a Sega Genesis start competing with each-other in the arena of chiptune music. It starts with the two sources alternating, then playing at the same time, with both sides trying to gain dominance. And then, at 2:00 in, the two sounds ''fuse together'' into a rendition of ''Danger'' way more awesome than either one could be alone. 8-bit music has never been so ''metal''.
* "Dragon Song" ([[ stream]]/[[ download]]) by Harmony is a fantastic piece from ''Secret of Mana'' for much the same reasons as "Pillar of Salt" mentioned earlier, though they're in entirely different styles; a stunning piece with an interesting blend of instrumentation topped by excellent vocals. It's so fantastic, in fact, that every time Harmony comes to one of the various site meetups, this song ends up [[ getting]] [[ played]] [[ acoustically]] at some point just because.
* The magnificient but under-appreciated {{Soukaigi}} soundtrack currently has only one remix, "Aftershock" ([[ stream]]/[[ download]]) and it is an ''experience'' of the central them. Honestly hard to describe as other than superlatively well-thought out.
* [[ "Brainshock"]] by aluminium (based on "Tessie!" from ''VideoGame/EarthBound'') has a very enjoyable dreamlike feel to it. To quote one of the song's comments, it makes you feel "entertainingly dizzy".
* Star Salzman's "Pillar of Salt", a jammin' ''VideoGame/{{Xenogears}}'' remix with lyrics in Arabic and Hebrew ([[ stream]]/[[ download]]).

[[folder:Remixes from shooters]]
* The Franchise/{{Halo}} theme: big, orchestral sized thing with all kinds of instruments. Well, now it's also a Celtic style song by the name of Mahabharath Highlands, and it is pure awesome. Give it a listen: ([[ download]]/[[ stream]])
* Bladiator and The Orichalcon team up to give us "Clairvoyant Elegy", a not quite funk, not quite pop, but definitely awesome remix from ''Final VideoGame/{{Doom}}'' ([[ stream]]/[[ download]]).
* Strike did a great job at remixing the intense Credits music from ''VideoGame/PerfectDark'', turning it into an almost other form of awesome: "Deploy"! ([[ stream]]/[[ download]])
* "Barrel Roll" by [=PrototypeRaptor=] ([[ stream]]/[[ download]]) is an arrangement of the Corneria music from ''VideoGame/StarFox'' (which even includes voice samples of the [[MemeticMutation infamous line]]).
* "[[VideoGame/UnrealTournament Foregone Rejuvenation]]" [[ stream]]. An excellently done remix of what is probably the most popular piece of the original Unreal Tournament game's soundtrack, replacing the original version's drum 'n bass with something much more... spacey-er.

[[folder:Remixes from visual novels]]
* From the ''VisualNovel/RadicalDreamers'' album ''Thieves of Fate'', with have "Confronto Finale" by Tweek, a great remix of the "Final Confrontation" music of the game. This mix transforms the song into an epic music battle between Trance, Orchestral, and [=DnB=], while still keeping a haunting and awesome feel ([[ stream]]/[[ download]]).
* From the same album, [[ Summer's Dream]] is a low key percussive affair gently wandering through the epilogue music with a very labyrinthine quality to it. Not on the album, but rather part of a slew of "Far Promise ~ Dream Shore" remixes for ''VisualNovel/RadicalDreamers'' is Roggah's "Older Promises" ([[ stream]]/[[ download]]). This one will leave amateur pianists in lament for the lack of sheet music, it is just so staggeringly poignant.
* Try a ''VisualNovel/AceAttorney'' mix on for size. Done by [=PrototypeRaptor=], "Cross-Examination (Sudden Interjection)" ([[ stream]]/[[ download]]) is remix of the Objection Theme. Any fan of the series knows that it is practically a law for any version of the song to be awesome.
* "Holiday with Mia Fey" ([[ stream]]). A pretty good remix of the Turnabout Sisters theme from the first Ace Attorney game. Got some nice synth improv solos too.
* There's also OA's "This Feeling" ([[ stream]]). It's a truly stunning and electric remix that only gets better with the addition of an electric guitar partway through.
* [[ Carry the Moment]] has some truly mind-blowing synthesizer work.

[[folder:Remixes from other games]]
* "Frame of Mind", a silky-smooth ''VideoGame/BeyondGoodAndEvil'' medley by Aurora, destructo and [=SGX=] ([[ stream]]/[[ download]]).
* The entire [[VideoGame/NightsIntoDreams NiGHTS]]: Lucid Dreams album, but specifically Dies, Nox et Omnia, which is based on D'Force Master and is Ocremix's first operatic duet! [[ stream]] [[ download]]
* audio fidelity's "Pirate Shout" ([[ stream]]/[[ download]]), an EPIC metal version of the ''VideoGame/MonkeyIsland'' theme, complete with a rousing pirate chorus and a recorder to boot!
* Even disco gets its due on the site with the catchy, potentially EarWorm-y[[ "Bust This Groove '81"]] (based on "Blue Knife (Bust A Move Edit)" from, well, ''Bust A Move'').
* Navi's [[ Remix]] of ''VideoGame/ParappaTheRapper'' has some serious flow.
* [[ This album]] by Mattias Häggström Gerdt. Eleven tracks remixing various ''VideoGame/ArmoredCore'' games.
* ''[[ Celestial Winds from The East]]'' is a laidback, Shamisen-based rendition of ''VideoGame/{{Okami}}'s'' ''"Reset"~Thank You Version'', already a beautiful song on its own. The {{Ska}}-like beat combined with the Oriental instruments make for a great cover, while keeping the original's beauty intact.
* "[[ Amorelle]]", a {{Nujabes}}-styled remix of ''VideoGame/{{Shenmue}}'' music. Not bad at all.
* Ghetto Lee Lewis managed to turn the repetitive music of NES's ''VideoGame/FridayThe13th'' into [[ something remarkable]] (though be warned, the sound samples contain spoilers for the first ''Film/{{Friday the 13th|1980}}'' film).
* "Hell March to the Apocalypse", which takes the already intense "Hell March" from ''VideoGame/CommandAndConquerRedAlert'' and adds orchestration. The result is guaranteed to kick your teeth in. [[ Stream]] / [[ Download]]
