* RealSongThemeTune: A case where the entire soundtrack is one, with a lot of the songs done by Music/{{Angra}} and it's then lead guitarist Kiko Loureiro. This is especially apparent in the original theatrical print in Brazil, where all the incidental music is replaced with more placements of the existing ''Angra'' songs
