Pantheon Theme Titles Project

A note on character themes:

According to the rules of the Trope Pantheon, characters should have distinctive titles for their their music whenever appropriate. However, many source materials such as video games have themes for every notable or playable character which are all titled "Theme of X"; this, especially for characters with multiple official composed or arranged themes, would result in "Theme of X" or "his/her [insert game here] theme" texts filling the line in abundance, even in cases where official assets exist within or tied to the source material that would offer unique titles for every character. In those cases, whenever such modifications are made, the official asset (or closest thing to one) used for the new title will usually be placed in a starred labelnote next to the link (unless it's an obvious thing like the name of the stage associated with the character or a recognizable lyric within the vocals of a song-like theme). However, this page exists to chronicle them all in a neat space.

Consistency is usually preferred in this regard, in that the same asset should be used to name every character's theme from a particular game. However, sometimes an additional asset or two may account for a minority of titles. This is acceptable as long as it is noted.

A note on main themes of works:

Many times a main character will be associated with a work to the point that the work's main opening/menu theme is used as one of the character's themes in the Pantheon. In some of those cases, said theme doesn't have a title besides "Main Menu" or "Main Theme" next to the name of the work. Within the Pantheon, this will be represented by the name of the work alone (and if Protagonist Title: Electric Boogaloo is at play — colon included, NOT the same as Title: The Adaptation — the side with the character's name may be excluded from the link). Here is a list of works with a nameless main theme associated with their main character in the Pantheon.


How well does it match the trope?
