- Awesome Music: All of it. Simply do a Youtube search on them.
- ''Sons of War'' deserves special mention.
- ''Strength of a Thousand Men'' starts off as epic battle music, then the vocalization kicks in...
- ''Protectors of the Earth''. Makes. Everything. Epic. Even My Little Pony .
- ''Victory'' from Battlecry starts off quiet and slow, but then has an epic buildup that is enhanced by some female vocals.
- ''United We Stand - Divided We Fall'' is the most viewed track on YouTubenote , with 6 million views and it's not hard to see why. The epic build-up, the vocals, the choir - it's basically a battle happening in your ears.
- From one of Thomas Bergersen's solo albums, we have Fearless, which is quite possibly the most epic heroic battle theme ever composed.
- The Christmas Medley is truly epic to behold, and is basically an extremely epic remix of tons of different classic Christmas songs, opera style. Sure to warm your heart.
- Archangel starts with an epic theme. Then turns it into a crescendo. Then turns the crescendo to eleven. Then it turns it to eleven again. Then is when the chorus starts. The whole piece is a textbook example of how to keep you feeling at the edge of a big finale for the full length of the song.
- Memetic Mutation: Their YouTube videos are replete with comments implying that Two Steps From Hell's music playing makes anything epic and awesome.
- Periphery Demographic: Marketing example: TSFH originally marketed its music only to film studios, but the common interest in it eventually led a lot of songs being released to the public in albums.
- Signature Song: Probably Heart of Courage.
- Suspiciously Similar Song: Quite a few tracks sound a lot like famous movie scores, ranging from blink-and-you'll-miss-it references to downright plagiarism. The reason this outfit still exists is because they write their music to order for the studios, who already owns the rights to the soundtracks they are emulating. The music was never meant for public release.
- They've ripped off Hans Zimmer's Pirates of the Caribbean scores not just once, not twice, but three times. Perhaps not surprising considering Thomas and Nick contributed additional music to the score of Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides.
- Or how about their spin on the Superman theme?
- Here are some examples.
