For a puzzle game, you'd be surprised by its myriad of great tunes! You can even listen to Fever 1+2, 7, and 20th OSTs and the Puyo Puyo Song single on Spotify, or snag yourself on iTunes.

     Puyo Puyo 1 
  • The first Puyo game graced us with Final of Puyo Puyo, the track that plays with your showdown with Dark Prince...or your showdown with player 2 as it was used as the 2 player theme in Dr Robotnik's Mean Bean Machine.
  • The first game also gave us Memories of Puyo Puyo, a recurring song passed down from its ancestor game, Madou Monogatari. It's seen use as the Stage 1-8 intro theme, a shorter cut was used as the password entry screen in Dr Robotnik's Mean Bean Machine.
    • It was given a 'Euro version' remix in Puyo Puyo DA! and was used for Rulue's stage in that game.
    • It's even used as a dungeon theme for Waku Puyo Dungeon.
    • After a long time, the song returns with a brand new remix in 20th anniversary.
    • And it's rearranged once again for Chronicle, serving as the theme of the final area, Tower of Color (with some Fever 2 rifts thrown in!).
  • Another iconic theme is the theme for Puyo Puyo, the original game's levels 1 to 8 music. However, it's better known as Arle's theme, Jikuu wo Koe te Hisashiburi, or, in English, 'A Long-awaited Spacetime Journey!' It has very basic vocals by Arle Nadja herself, and acts as her leitmotif.
  • Rounding off the stage themes is the Sticker of Puyo Puyo, in its original incarnation, Dr. Robotnik's Mean Bean Machine's Exercise theme, or the Request from Puyo Puyo variant in most recent modern games. A fast, pumping song that inspires you to take on the next four opponents, hone your Puyo skills in the hopes of stopping Robotnik, or just all around have a good time.

     Puyo Puyo 2/Tsu 

     Puyo Puyo SUN 
  • SUN's tropical feel is rampant across the entire soundtrack, with rival mode being the most well known example. It was later remixed as Draco's theme from 20th Anniversary onward, and for good reason.
  • Draco Centauros's easy mode theme is a good start to the game's exuberant mode themes and is a nice appetizer for Arle and Schezo's stories.
  • Arle Nadja's normal mode theme is probably the peppiest of the bunch and fits well with Arle's cheery attitude. It was later given an equally cheery remix in Chronicle.
  • Schezo Wegey's hard mode theme feels the most intense and panicked (although still very cheery), fitting his difficulty.

     Fever 1 & 2 

     Anniversaries (15th and 20th) 
  • The Fever music from 15th Anniversary. It uses the main theme of 15th Anniversary, only in a pumping, hyper pace as you blaze through your chains.
  • 15th Anniversary also gave us Rulue's theme, titled Combat queen Rulue! A fitting theme to say the least. Additionally, Rulue sings to this song and is the only character to sing from their 15th theme.
  • 20th Anniversary's Fever theme is also great. Those who are faithful to the games may recognize where the original tune came from. It also serves as the opening theme for the game.
  • Klug's theme in 20th anniversary, titled Nebula Step is a bumping beat that, if listened closely, has a few riffs derived from Possessed Klug's theme. Nebula Step also got the honor of being Klug's vocal track, rearranged in a more electronic style that retains its catchiness. The vocal track itself got rearranged for the Chronicle Vocal Tracks arrangement CD, giving a feel that would not be out of place in a Sonic game.
  • Schezo's theme in 20th, "The Pretty Boy Who Challenged the Heavens", is a rocking song that backs how intense Schezo can be when he's not being a Butt-Monkey.
    • His voice actor Masakazu Morita is no stranger to character songs, and it certainly shows in the vocal version.
    • His theme in 15th, fittingly titled I want you!...r power! is also amazing.
  • 20th anniversary introduced the 'Pair Puyo' mode in which you worked with a teammate to defeat the other team, when either team is on one life, "Pair in Peril!" plays as the 'Danger!' theme.
  • 20th anniversary had a 'Last' story, after going through 7 stages, you finally meet up with Ecolo and Dark Prince, and as Ecolo gloats about his plans, you have this playing in the background.
  • Double Trouble Finale! from 20th Anniversary. It's a perfect theme for fighting Dark Prince and Ecolo.

  • Dark Arle's theme, Dark Arle's Insanity in 7. It sets the tone perfectly for a battle with one of your best friends who is possessed.
  • Battle for the Fate of the Universe from 7, serving as Ecolo's theme. It's a badass track for fighting the mastermind behind the entire plot.
  • Faceoff in Puyopuyo World! ~ Magical Confrontation! from Puyo Puyo Tetris is a rocking battle theme that plays during one of your battles against Ecolo at the end of Chapter 5, as well as during the Puyo Puyo section of the swap battle against Ex during the final stages of Chapter 7.
  • Korobeiniki from Puyo Puyo Tetris. Yes, The Tetris theme in Puyo Puyo.
  • The arrangement of the music from Sega's 1988 Tetris game (the other "classic" Tetris game) that is available in Puyo Puyo Tetris.
  • The final battle in Puyo Puyo Tetris. It's a wonderful end to your adventure.
  • Domination (Rafisol's Battle Theme) from Puyo Puyo Chronicle is a truly beautiful piece and very distinct from other battle themes in the series. It starts slow, but then shifts into an intense tempo that enforces the stakes at hand. If you listen closely, it's actually a Dark Reprise of Chronicle's main theme.
  • To dabble into Madou Monogatari territory, the ancestor series, it offers Fiend Empire from ARS. It's the very first tune you hear when you start wandering in the forest as a very young Arle, and has only ever been given three additional renditions from Final Test (which is of questionable quality), Waku Puyo Dungeon, and a Tanaka Katsumi Greatest Hits rearrange.


How well does it match the trope?
