* A fight between [[BadassBiker badass bikers]] only deserves the gnarliest metal there is, and [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YVpMNK36S50 "Ride into Hell"]] certainly delivers on that front. The wild riffs just keep on coming and the track ends with an intense guitar solo as each roguish murder machine pulls out their coups de grâce, courtesy of Jonny Atma.

* [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eG5zbUFZ6Cc "Winter Sonata"]] is an elegant orchestral theme that suits both heiresses of ice, with dominant violins and piano themes that convey the grace and technique of Weiss and Mitsuru. The theme goes into heavier beats of rock in a few moments, most notably when Weiss summons the Arma Gigas [[spoiler: and to fade out when Weiss is frozen and shattered by Mitsuru.]]

* [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xTKatLk2TWY "Emerald Heroes"]] is a number that combines pianos, electric guitar, and plenty of synth to convey the vastness and wonders of space, with some vaguely incomprehensible chanting for an extra touch.

* [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VN1GteHBN5E "Appetite for Greed"]] is a fusion of jazz and rock that sounds like it could have been plucked straight from the ''VideoGame/WarioLand'' series for Wario's fight with Dedede. With a music box interlude partway through keeping up the tempo, the song takes a fight between a obese treasure hunter and a royal penguin with a hammer and makes it as exciting as any straight-laced match the series has done before.

* [[https://soundcloud.com/clementmarfo/king-ofthe-jungle "King of the Jungle"]], used in the initial reveal of Black Panther vs. Batman, is a rap number laden with intense guitar riffs and smoothly-delivered lyrics that suggests the fight is just a taste of what the fifth season has to offer.



* "Batman vs Black Panther" featured [[https://soundcloud.com/clementmarfo/king-ofthe-jungle "King of the Jungle"]], perfect for wanting us to see which characters will be crowned king.
* "Raven vs. Twilight Sparkle" featured [[https://itunes.apple.com/ca/album/death-battle-titans-magic-score-from-screwattack-series/1349539481?i=1349539596 "Titans of Magic"]], a haunting, slow, guitar-heavy punctuated by the peal of bells, fitting for a showdown between mages. [[spoiler:It comes complete with a final, echoing, solemn peal that rings out at the moment when Raven's Soul-Self lands the final blow.]]
* The song featured for "Jotaro vs. Kenshiro" was [[https://open.spotify.com/album/6DQVOAhGms4niPLWzBVVCO "Bizarre Stars"]], a rock song that also features riffs from "Stardust Crusaders" (Jotaro's theme in ''Jojo's Bizarre Adventure'') and "Ai wo Torimodose" (Kenshiro's theme song from ''Fist of the North Star''. YOU WA SHOCK!). It fades at two points. The first is when Jotaro stops time, and the second is when [[spoiler: Kenshiro utters his [[YouAreAlreadyDead catch phrase]] towards Jotaro, revealing that Jotaro was about to explode into LudicrousGibs.]]

* "Sora vs. Pit" features [[https://open.spotify.com/track/4k6gEXkxEPdxdVMBGdhH2A "Unlocking Heaven"]], which starts out a bit wonky, but then catches up and mixes Yates' guitar riffs with wind instruments, bells, and synth beats for an angelic theme that sounds like it came straight out of ''Kingdom Hearts'' or ''Uprising'', including a sped up excerpt from "Dearly Beloved" from ''Kingdom Hearts''.
* "Leon Kennedy vs. Frank West" has [[https://open.spotify.com/album/186FkDf5hdxp0cd0ixqeb2 "Resident Rising".]] It starts out with the typical ambient themes found in zombie survival games before breaking out into the guitar as the fight starts. The guitar ramps up with the dark tone as a piano slowly builds up in the background to pay homage to the soundtracks of both ''Resident Evil'' (piano) and ''Dead Rising'' (guitar) before the [[spoiler:killing blow, where the guitar slows down to make way for the piano and by extension, Leon's win]].

* [[https://open.spotify.com/album/31XqMDt2UmUjJYkLUmbtyB "Fight Like a Devil"]] is a killer rock theme made for Ryu vs. Jin, made even better with Omega Sparx’s rap track in the style of a fighting game that feels like a rap battle between two of video game history’s best known fighters. It gets at its most intense moments when Ryu goes into the Satsui No Hadou with Omega Sparx going into dark chanting and more violent lyrics, [[spoiler: and goes into blasting guitar riffs with Sparx chanting "Let's fight!" as Ryu goes into Mu no Ken to end Jin with the Shinku Hadouken]].
* "[[https://open.spotify.com/album/3k4Jvi59NIgpk5LDrNehUC Watch out, Samurai!]]" perfectly fits a duel between samurai with elegant string instruments mixed with a bit of hip-hop, and thus DEFINITELY fits for ''Samurai Jack vs Afro Samurai''. The theme steadily escalates as the two swordsmen continue to do battle, reaching its climax right before the final blow is dealt. [[spoiler: Afterwards, it plays a short segment of Samurai Jack's theme ("Gotta get back, back to the past, Samurai Jack!") preceded by the "Watch out!". This comes AFTER Jack has reduced Afro to LudicrousGibs.]]
