     Tales of Graces 
  • The amazing Windor-region battle theme, "Whet the Sheath", and the adorably awesome kids' version, "Never Let Go", which is played during the prologue.
  • Later in the game, we have "Emergence at Eternity's End", the Celtic-sounding battle music for Fodra.
  • "Mamoritai ~White Wishes~" gets a special mention for not only being beautiful, but for being one of the few Tales games where the lyrics really suit the theme of the game, and not just pure promotion's sake. It gets a depressing remix titled, "Unspoken Feelings", which plays at some of the most touching moments of the game.
  • Sophie's Leitmotif titled, erm, "Sophie", captures the protagonist's mysterious yet innocent atmosphere perfectly.
  • "Refreshing Atmosphere" is pretty much the Graces version of Vesperia's "Serenade of the Morning Star", in terms of beauty and tranquility.
  • "Dance of Madness", the theme that plays when you fight Emeraude.
  • "Defender of Life" is the beautiful and mysterious theme of Arcadia Forest.
  • "Risk Everything" is a solid, blood-pumping theme that plays for the battles in the final dungeon of the Future Arc.
  • The Final Boss theme, "Life's Cry", is not only kick-ass, but really haunting, which the haunting holy music in the background.
  • "Pomp and Majesty" is pretty awesome for a town theme. That opening fanfare, man....

     Tales of the World: Radiant Mythology 1 - 3 
  • The normal battle theme Beginning of a Battle is definitely AWESOME!!
  • Radiant Mythology 2 has A Desperate Battle, which is just as epic as the near-identically named Desperate Battle from Tales of Rebirth.
  • Holy Crusade. The vocals on this one make it even more epic.
  • If you are looking for a good boss battle theme you can always go with Worth Dying For.
  • Moscoby Desert is very calm but adventurous at the same time.
  • Mandarge Underground City Ruins. Makes you wonder what lies further within....
  • Radiant Battle the official battle theme for the legendary Radiants. The moment it begins you already know it's about to get serious.
  • Anger to Sadness. The third secret optional theme for the first part of the final boss. Easily the best one out of the other two secret optional battle themes for the first part of the final boss, since it captures the final bosses ambitions and reasons.
  • The secret final boss theme Final Damnation is merely a taste of Go Shiina's capability as a composer. See God Eater Burst for more evidence.
  • Deus ex Machina. The third secret optional theme for the second part of the final boss. Not as epic as Final Damnation , but it's still pretty cool.
  • The theme Cave of the World Tree, which is from the World Tree dungeon which is available in the epilogue. Makes you think that the Descender is finally visiting the location where he or she was born from.
  • The theme songs, flyaway and where is the future? are oh-so-epic.
    • The remixed version of flyaway, with the collaboration of Kanae Ito (Kanonno Earhart's VA) turned out very awesome!
  • Radiant Mythology 3's theme song, with you feat. Me is nothing short of badass.

     Tales of Xillia/Tales of Xillia 2 
  • The final boss theme, Battle for a Future to Believe In, is just pure orchestral awesomeness.
  • Believe in Me deserves special mention here. It's put to good use in the Hammerzamm boss fight when Milla regains her ability to walk after being stuck in a wheelchair and joins the battle.
  • Jude's threebattlethemes makes excellent of a rock guitar, while Milla's three battle themes uses the violin in a way that rivals "Blinded by Light" from Final Fantasy XIII.
  • The battle theme against Gaius and Muzet (when by themselves), Indomitable Will.
  • After a somewhat disappointing absence in the first Xillia, the cameo fights return in Tales of Xillia 2, and the music that plays in the background, Feast with Those Who Transcend Dimensions, combines "Common Destiny" and "Unfinished World" from Tales of Destiny with the second overworld theme and "Decisive Battle" from Tales of Phantasia to create a battle theme fit for duking it out with the main hero and heroine from the respective games.
  • The final boss theme, Following One's Own Purpose, definitely gives off a vibe that pushes you to fight at your absolute best. Then, it transitions over to the Theme Music Power-Up, If It's For You ~Song 4 U~, and it's AWESOME.
  • Splendid Dance Performance of a Spirit. Everything from that amazing orchestral intro to the fast-paced battle theme is simply fitting for the return of Milla Maxwell.
  • Victor's battle theme, Betting on the Last Guide. Just when you thought combining metal with a choir couldn't get any more intense, this song happens. It definitely fits its corresponding battle since you're fighting a future version of Ludger, complete with his own Chromatus form. What further makes this song awesome is how different it is from the rest of the games soundtrack. You'd think fighting what likely is the final obstacle to saving the world so far would warrant a heroic theme? Not when you have to kill a evil version of yourself, whose also the father of the games heroine. Some people actually were upset that it didn't play in the games bad ending.
  • The Proof Discovered in the End of Sadness, for taking that recurring musical theme that plays throughout the game and making it absolutely heartbreaking.
  • The music for the obligatory Duel Boss, For the Sake of Mutual Proof.
  • The theme for battles with divergence catalysts, Break the Time Factor, really amps up the tension.

     Tales of Zestiria 

     Tales of Berseria 
  • The opening theme is confirmed to be "BURN" by FLOW. In heavy contrast to the epic rock of Zestiria's "White Light", "BURN" seems to take a much darker tone fitting of the new protagonist, evoking a more post-hardcore style, and providing us with the most aggressive mothership opening to date.
  • The Main Theme of the game, which has also been rearranged to be the leitmotif of our protagonist Velvet.
  • The Cameo Battle Theme, Clenched Fist and the Sword Dances, is a medley of songs from the first Tales of Xillia all rearranged to be in-line with the instruments of Berseria and to herald the return of Jude Mathis and Milla Maxwell. The songs used are (in order): "Clenched Fist," "Daring Sword," "Believe in Me," and "Life or Death."
  • Rokurou's theme, which notably plays in the first encounter with him and in later bits of the story where he gets to show off his stuff. A fast-paced guitar piece accompanied by a Japanese flute that perfectly represents the Daemon samurai who lives for the thrill of the battlefield. In a similar vein, there's the battle theme of his older brother Shigure. The guitar riffs and Japanese instruments are made a lot more menacing to portray the bigger threat that Shigure poses to the party.
  • Justice of the Knight, when you finally get a serious battle against Oscar. Complete with Ominous Latin Chanting perfectly blended with One-Woman Wail, this song is meant to bring chills to the player when you realize the Oscar you're fighting is armatized.
  • The Will that Opposes Reason, otherwise known as the theme that plays in battles against the Abbey.
  • Daemon Assault helps add a feeling of intensity to fights with major Daemons, such as therions. Thematically, it even sounds somewhat like a more intense version of the Tales of the Abyss theme for the Six God Generals.
  • The theme that plays in the final dungeon, The Way of the Embodied Dragon.

     Others 
  • Impronta -vague3.rm-, a remix of the TALES EXPO 2003 theme by Zts (of DJ Max fame).
  • Those wacky OC Remix fellows have also got their hands on the Tales series: Behold, Summoning of Spirits.
  • Sakuraba came back for Tales of Hearts, and of course the results rock. A kind GameFAQser has archived the battle themes.
  • Tales of the Heroes: Twin Brave got some awesome theme songs in the form of SHINE and NEW DAYS.
  • Tales of Versus gives us the catchy Be your wings as its theme song.
  • Tales of the World: Dice Adventure has a kickass theme in Chizu no Arika.
  • There's also the incredible orchestral remixes made for the 20th anniversary.
  • Tales of Zestiria the X, the anime adaptation of the Zestiria game, combines the game's BGM with some awesome new vocal music, the foremost being FLOW's "Kaze no Uta" and "Innosense", which serve as the first opening theme and second ending theme respectively.

Alternative Title(s): Tales Of Symphonia
