Awesome Music / Ikaruga

Go To

There's little polarization on the issue of Ikaruga having an awesome soundtrack.

  • Ideal and if you're good enough (or creditfeed), you'll get this lovely arrangement for your battle with the final boss.
  • The Default Boss Music, Butsutekkai is perhaps the most well-known song from the game for good reason: its fast-paced tone gives off an awesome thrill to the intense battle against the boss itself.
  • Stage 2 - Trial and its Boss Theme, Recapture. The former syncs perfectly well with the intro where the Player Characters battle above what appears to be a city before descending to one of Hourai's bases. The latter may not be as loved as Butsutekkai, but its distinct tone and pace makes the boss theme stand out.

  • Faith, the tune to the game's third stage. The multiple "instruments" are layered over each other perfectly, and timed perfectly, to create a truly epic accompaniment to the game's jump from merely tricky to score well on to an ordeal for the mightiest of gamers.
  • Even the theme to That One Level of the game, Reality, is awesome. The slow-paced yet epic tone perfectly reflects Misago's massive size and firepower while our hero(es) fly around the floating fortress to fight it on different angles.


How well does it match the trope?
