    Hisoutensoku, expanding on SWR 

    Double Spoiler 

    Great Fairy Wars 
  • "The Refrain of the Lovely Great War", the stage 1 theme. It has an inspiring beginning, but has a touch of silliness, obviously. The original came in the CD that was included with the vol.2 of Strange and Bright Natural Beauty. Look in the supplementary material section for more information.
  • "Year-Round Absorbed Curiosity", the stage 2 theme, uses the main theme song as base. As silly as the other melodies, but this one has a badass touch. An interesting melody, indeed.
    • Sound Holic has a neat remix!
    • セブンスヘブンMAXION's remix, yell☆shine☆dance!!, comes off like the Three Mischievous Fairies themselves are singing it.
  • "Staking Your Life on a Prank", the boss theme for stages 1 and 2. It's gotta be real hard to make a theme that both sounds cute and sounds like a boss theme.
  • "A Midnight Fairy Dance", the stage 3 theme. This is a jazzy and rhythmic melody, with a menacing touch, indicating that you're near to the final confrontation. After which, you are invited to a "Midnight Fairy Party" by Whi TECHNO.
  • "Great Fairy Wars ~ Fairy Wars", the final boss theme. Quite the epic tune, with just the right amount of silliness to remind us that these are faeries.
  • "Loose Rain", the Extra Stage theme. This one has a dark, intense, and sinister feel to it, perfect for the prelude leading up to the fight against Marisa.
  • "Magus Night", yet another epic Marisa theme.
    Youtuber: It's like it's saying: "You're fighting Marisa? What are you, stupid? ...nevermind."

    Hopeless Masquerade 

    Double Dealing Character 

    Impossible Spell Card 

    Urban Legend in Limbo 

    Legacy of Lunatic Kingdom 
  • The main menu theme "The Space Shrine Maiden Appears" sounds strange and fantastical, readying you for the journey to come.
  • The first stage theme, "Unforgettable, The Nostalgic Greenery has an alien feeling, reminiscent of the PC-98 days.
  • By 12 May (which is the second day after the demo release), there was already a well-done piano arrange by Komeiji Records of "The Rabbit Has Landed", the boss theme for the Stage 1 Boss, Seiran. This 8-bit arrange was published on the same day as the demo release.
    • Like techno with your jazz? Jericho's Law has your back.
    • TatshMusicCircle serves an electric METAL RABBIT with a surprising guitar accompaniment.
    • Combining tango, waltz, and bossa nova is the amazingly upbeat and danceworthy Strawberry Tango by Ringing Volcano, which mixes this theme with September Pumpkin.
  • Going to the secret base by the lake in the Youkai Mountain, we are treated to "The Lake Reflects the Pure Moonlight". The heavy atmosphere of the theme is also present in this 8-bit remix.
  • From the demo, it looks like Legacy of Lunatic Kingdom will be a ton harder than the other games. Not surprising, then, that "September Pumpkin", only the Stage 2 boss theme, is awesome enough for a final boss battle.
  • The third stage in the Dream World brings "The Mysterious Shrine Maiden Flying Through Space" and a sense of flying through fantasy.
  • Doremy Sweet, the stage 3 boss, has "Eternal Spring Dream". It certainly sounds very dreamy. Melodic Taste, on the other hand, turns it into a bombastic arrangement worthy of an orchestra.
  • The fourth stage theme, "Frozen Eternal Capital", lonely and cold as well as very mysterious. It really makes you wonder "What happened here?". It also bears a similar feel to Imperishable Night's stage 4 theme to tie in the lunar feel both games bore.
    • This orchestral arrangement from the circle Melodic Taste ironically conveys quite a bit of life as well as triumph and calm.
    • If you like piano, then have a lovely piano arrange by Aka Kyuketsuki.
  • The theme of the fourth stage boss Sagume Kishin, "The Reversed Wheel of Fortune" is strange and off-putting, and invokes a sense of power. Fitting, given she is a Lunarian with a terrible power.
  • Over the Sea of Tranquility, "The Sea Where the Home Planet is Reflected", the final stage theme, perhaps the most beautiful and tragic ever composed. And while the original might be sad, this remix turns it instead into a triumphant march.
  • Reprising the stage theme, the simple elegance, and straight-forward raw power of the final boss track; "Pure Furies ~ Whereabouts of the Heart".
    • Here is a piano-only version. As with everything piano-only it sounds a lot sadder and more tragic than the original which considering Junko's history is entirely appropriate.
    • An epic orchestra arrange by crescentia that starts low and slow, but eventually picks up its power without going overboard.
    • Another orchestral arrange that goes full-power from the start and never lets up.
    • A techno arrange that will induce even more sweat than fighting against Junko herself on Lunatic difficulty would, while staying true to the "spacey" sound of the original.
    • Yet another orchestra arrange, this time going strong with the string intruments and powerful trumpets.
    • It really says something about the song's sheer power when an 8-bit Gameboy remix still sounds like a Pokemon Champion battle in terms of epicness.
    • A beautiful orchestra-metal arrange with Chinese lyrics here.
    • And now, something to rock out to.
    • One Youtuber changes the melody into something somber and powerful, slowly raising the emotions of tune into a beautiful, yet melancholic expression of Junko's rage and sadness.
  • The Extra Stage theme, "A Never-Before-Seen World of Nightmares", sets an ominous yet energetic tone for the long and difficult road ahead, as well as the dreaded rematch with Doremy.
  • Hecatia Lapislazuli's theme, "Pandemonic Planet", has a mischievous and chaotic tone to it. Partially through the song, there's a pause followed by a more dramatic and energetic melody—which usually coincides with the first time Junko hops in for her turn during the battle.

    Antinomy of Common Flowers 

    Hidden Star in Four Seasons 

    Violet Detector 
  • The title screen envelops us in an eerie and ominous mood befitting of an occultist with Diary of Nightmares. Odyssey & The DNA Team deliver an amazing Villain Song for the Dream Selves with Nightmares.
  • The first week's theme, Lucid Dreamer is rather otherworldly and somewhat off-putting.
  • The third week's theme, Nightmare Diary, makes you feel as if you're stuck in nightmare upon nightmare with no escape.

    Wily Beast and Weakest Creature
