Our Kickstarter campaign has received $74,000 from over 2,000 backers! TV Tropes 2.0 is coming. There is no stopping it now. We have 4 days left. At $75K we can also develop an API and at $100K the tropes web series will be produced. View the project here and discuss here.
The opening theme, "Yume wa Owaranai" ("The Dream Will Never Die"). Awesome Music indeed because it's not only catchy, but it makes Tales of Phantasia the first game ever on the SNES to have a title theme with vocals!, making it double as the SNES' Moment Of Awesome!
Premonition deserves a nod too. It is both serene and epic.
The sequel's first battle theme, aptly named ''Theme of Battle, another great piece by Motoi Sakuraba. Then... there's also Barbatos' LeitmotifCoup de Grbce, as another proof that he's just that damn awesome for a villain.
The Tales of Versusversion cranks it way up. The Narikiri Dungeon 3version is also really catchy.
Dona Nobis Pacem, the last standard battle theme of the sequel, definitely deserves a mention here.
Symphonia had an amazing Leitmotif for pretty much every major character. Presea and Sheena in particular had awesome themes. Presea's theme also has a reprise, which plays as Ozette burns down. Zelos' theme is also great, but only if you're into that sort of thing.
"Fatalize" incorporates bits of Sheena's leitmotif as well - it plays when you're fighting her as an enemy.
Finish the Promise, an epic final boss theme that actually works in the Grand Fonic Hymn (a tune you'll hear frequently in battles if you use Tear, and an important storyline thing as well), making it all kinds of awesome.
The Look of That Day, the credits music. You must feel something when you watch it. If there is no pulling at the heartstrings; if the pictures don't get to you, and if the piano doesn't get to you, and if the events that happened don't get to you, there is something wrong with you. Or maybe you're just Jade. (Who still felt something after all was said and done.)
Everlasting Fight, the cameo battle theme. "Bare its Fangs", "Inferia Battle", "Dona Nobis Pacem", and "Take Up the Cross". Four of the best battle themes mentioned on this page. Combined into one. And remixed for maximum awesome.
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.
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.
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.
