Virtua Fighter 4 Evolution
Virtua Fighter 5 Final Showdown
- Ai wa Tsuienai (Love is Never Wasted), the Special Credits music played when you beat Dural in Arcade Mode without continues. Hearing this song will make it even more satisfying doing the objective as it is sung by Takenobu Mitsuyoshi, who sang the Second Opening of the anime!
- Wild Vision, First Opening theme. An upbeat theme to rather upbeat season.
- Kuchibiru no Shinwa (Lips of Legend), First Ending theme.
- Ai Gatari Nai Ze (Love is Not Enough), Second Opening theme. This one packs a lot of energy and fighting spirit. Mitsuyoshi has claimed this song to be one of his favorites.
- Kyouhansha (Accomplice), Second Ending theme. This one is both catchy and also rather haunting with somewhat discomforting vocals and lyrics which captures Sarah's character arc.
- Eien no man-naka de (At the Center of Eternity), Third Ending theme.
- Time After Time, Akira's theme.
- Super Girl '96, Pai's theme.
- My Way Stay Love, Jacky's theme.
- One's Eyes Are Dangerous, Sarah's theme.
Image Songs and Music Videos
Dancing Shadows, an image album for Virtua Fighter 2:
- Dancing Shadows - Sarah. A somewhat melancholy piece with a nice, heavy guitar riff which captures Sarah's angst while she's under J6's control.
- Believe in Love - Jacky. A song that goes both upbeat and downbeat, exemplifying Jacky's naturally cheerful personality, but also the seriousness of his mission to save his sister. It shows the familial love he still feels for her and the hope she still remembers him.
- Go Beyond That Wave - Jeffry. A surprisingly soothing track for such a boisterous and rough character like Jeffry.
- Summer Tempest - Akira. One of the best songs in the whole album.
- Oh My Shinin' Star - Pai. An easygoing, lowkey J-Pop song that shows how despite being a celebrity, Pai is still a normal girl.
- Everyone is a Stranger - Kage. A heavy, downbeat rock song that's just right for the stoic ninja on a mission.
- CHAIN REACTION - Wolf. A little cheesy, but an Ear Worm too.
- Golden Rain - Lau. Nice, smooth guitar with a bit of an R&B style.
- Winner or Loser - Lion. A song about finding one's own inner strength and confidence, win or lose.
- Confusing Dreams - Shun. The kind of song you just want to sit back and listen to with a good drink.
- Embrace the Unreachable Heart - Dural. Hard, catchy guitar riffs, with some unusual vocals.
