It shouldn't be a surprise given Yasunori Mitsuda is composing most of the soundtracks.
Examples from the original series
- Most of the openings are so catchy, they always capture the tone for every season.
- "Soccer Battle" sets the adrenaline so well, that you'll find yourself yelling a random hissatsu.
- Official Matches is cool piece of music that definitely gets the bloodstream adrenalining. Also, the DS version is quite nice as well.
- The burning phase tracks really pumps you up. This 8-bit remix really captures the vibe you get from its source material.
- "Farewell, Gouenji Shuuya" is the sad track that plays when Gouenji leaves Raimon.
- "The thoughts of the eleven" plays during peaceful and melancholic moments in the series (especially during the Aliea Academy arc).
- "Raimon no Chikara" just makes you want to scream "ETERNAL BILZZARD!"
- The Big Bads usually have a lot of great tracks.
- "Gathering Circle" is the track that plays before a match. It really makes you wonder how it's gonna end up.
- Hearing "Inazuma Caravan" makes you want to go look for an adventure.
- "Hashiru Inazuma" starts out so strong it deserves a special mention, it's especially fitting during the Raimon vs. Hakuren match.
- "Kesshi no Kogeki" plays during an unexpected success and especially Endou using "The Earth".
Examples from GO
- T-Pistonz+KMC's catchy openings don't stop.
- Ten Made Todoke, besides being a cheerful opening, is also really catchy.
- Naseba Narunosa Nanairo Tamago basically follows the same theme of "Ten Made Todoke", but is even catchier.
- Uchi Kudaku (which is also the GO: Dark's opening) contrasts with previous openings as it feels the bleakest and most hopeless of them all, and you know; it's catchy.
- Double Wing, though most of you probably heard it from somewhere else.
- Senguuji no Chikara, though it's associated more with Beta rather than Senguuji.
- Shindou's Theme, "Kami no Takuto", is not only a perfect theme for Shindou, but it also helps convey some of the earlier drama in GO very well.
Examples from Chrono Stone
- The openings.
- Jounetsu de Mune Atsu is a deceivingly dark opening that is not only a treat to watch, but the Spanish side of the song makes it really enjoyable to listen to.
- Kandou Kyoyuu works as the light in the darkness that is "Jounetsu de Mune Atsu", being very energetic by the end. There's also a cover by Tenma, Shindou, Tetsukado, and Ibuki.
- Raimei Blue Train takes the very campy side of Chrono Stone, and turns it into a song filled with badassery.
- The endings.
- Natsu Ga Yattekuru, which is really good thanks to Kitahara Sayaka's singing voice.
- The new Seishun Oden cover by Kinako, Aoi, Midori, and Akane is a fun blast from the past and fits is quite nicely with the sci-fi nature of Chrono Stone.
- Bokutachi no Shiro is one hell of a Tear Jerker of an ending, by sounding like a graduation song, and the very fact that it's alluding to Kinako's death. It also has another cover where the managers sing too.
- Gassen! Toushi Amou is one badass way to start out Shindou's Mixi-Max with Nobunaga.
- Tenma's Keshin is another badass track that plays everytime it's Time to Unlock More True Potential.
- Tenmas' Attack is one of those rare cases of having a badass track, while also makes the match feel friendly. This is also the track used for Chrono Stone's next episode preview.
- Light of Inspiration shows off how mixing Arthurian fantasy and soccer can be badass. It's also the theme that plays when you face off Chrono Storm in Galaxy's Level 99 Taisen Route, and is surprisingly badass here.
- Jeanne d'Arc gives us a surprisingly dark track that somehow conveys the horrors of war... in Inazuma Eleven... at its campiest.
- Jouheki no Tatakai is an absolutely moving and courageous orchestral track that ends the final match with a satisfying bang.
