    Anyway just list some of you favorite boss fight music from your favorite games and all that.

    I'll start with the best one.

    Let the fight for second place commence.

    yes i did make this thread just to have an excuse to post that song.

        Best RPG this gen...or last.

        Anyway I have to say, the boss theme for Donkey Kong Country Tropical Freeze is shaping to be really damn good. David Wise at his finest. Would be awesome if each boss got a different boss theme too.

        And I have to give Metal Gear Rising the honorable mention. What a dope game and an even doper soundtrack. Particularly this one. Best part about these is that the vocals kick in right when the boss is at CRITICAL HEALTH. So, yeah, if you didn't buy MGR yet, I just gave you an excuse.

          I am disappointed this song isn't here yet even though there has only been 4 posts.

          Live & Learn from Sonic Adventure 2 has to be my all time favourite boss theme.


          Coming in second would have to be Supporting Me from the same game :P


          Though I think Lances/Reds Battle Theme from Gold/Silver would definitely be up there somewhere. Those are the ones I can think of right now anyhow.

            My Personal Favourite.

            Final Fantasy VI- Dancing Mad : 1 of the downright most epic things I've ever heard in a video game, even over some other sited favorites like One Winged Angel. I think what's coolest is this is all done on a Super Nes Sound chip, which is..well..amazing!

              It might be my Gen III favoritism but I always thought the Magma and Aqua Admin boss music was intense af. (considering it's in the same gen with Miror B's music I don't think it's just bias though)

              Final boss theme from Sonic 3 is my favorite. It fits the atmosphere of the fight very nicely, and it never fails to get you hyped. I used to constantly re-challenge the boss just so I can hear the music again, haha. The final theme from Yoshi's Island is also my favorite. When I first heard this theme after I had taken down Baby Bowser, I started to think that I'd defeated the last boss. As it started to get more intense, I knew that I wasn't done, so I had to prepare for another match. It was quite a nice swerve.

              The final boss music for Mario & Luigi: Dream Team Bros. is fantastic, in my opinion.
              Although, Magnus von Grapple from Paper Mario: The Thousand Year Door is also a personal favourite of mine.

                As bad as Sonic 06' was, I really like the His World instrumental version, it just has a fantastic tune to it. The lyrical version doesn't really work that well in my opinion and the instrumental version is a lot better. It has a really good beat to it and flows so well.

                A lot to choose from. I personally would go with Lufia II's Sinistral battle theme. I find it epic on every level and it makes the battles just that more intense.

                  My personal favorite boss battle musics are Kaptain K.Rool's theme from Donkey Kong Country 2 and Xi-Tiger battle from Alien Soldier.

                  I absolutely love the orchestral final boss themes that the "modern era" Sonic games had (except for the one in Generations. The Time Eater theme sucked.) But of all of them, the Perfect Dark Gaia Theme from Sonic Unleashed is by far the best.

                  Have you heard the one in Bowser's Inside story? That, I think was the greatest boss theme ever. It has the energy that pumps you up for battle theat I feel Dream team lacks in some way.

Granted the boss itself doesn't feel too epic because it's such an easy fight (if you've got the right cannon on!) but the music sure helps to ramp up the event. I was considering posting the music from Ape Escape 2's final battle, but after having remembered Kid Icarus I'm not sure anything can beat it haha.

                    While Runescape may be a mediocre game, the music has always been phenomenal. The boss tracks are some of my favorites.

                    From the Dungeoneering skill/dungeon-crawling activity in Runescape 2 & 3, the music for Shadow-Forger Ihlakhizan:

                    This one is a heavily-remixed version of the main Dungeoneering theme (and for a while, RS2's login theme), "Born to Do This". The Shadow-forger uses both light and shadow during the fight, and the pillars pictured in the video are a huge mechanic in the fight. He can use a damaging flash of light and can spray acid, and the only way to avoid them is to hid behind the pillars; however if you're behind them for longer than a few seconds he can attack you with their shadows, so you have to duck in and out from behind them often.

                    From Runescape 3, the boss theme(s) from The Death of Chivalry quest (a remake of the quest Black Knight's Fortress from Runescape 2):

                    Major quest spoilers:
                    The premise of the quest involves the player and a white knight named Sir Owen (a friend from earlier in the game, the white knight pictured) chasing down a lead that the black knights are in possession of some super-powerful weapon that they plan to use to attack a nearby city. At the end of the quest, you discover the black knights were working with a sorceress named Dawn who was looking into using necromancy. Dawn eventually slays Sir Owen then re-raises him from the dead as a distraction while she escapes. Part I (start-3:09) plays while the player fights the undead Owen. Part II (3:09-end) starts once the player catches up to and confronts Dawn. She uses powerful magic blasts, can forcibly teleport the player away from her, and can re-raise the bodies of nearby dead soldiers

                      Sometimes I'd go around trying to find different boss musics, and well, here are my favorite two:

                      Thunder Force 4: Evil Destroyer
                      I came across this trying to look for good sounding boss music, and I think that I had found the best one for the retro games.

                      Dino Crisis: Final Boss Battle
                      This indeed brings back memories. Fighting the T-Rex here was very tough at first, and the music brings on panic.

                      This seems like the perfect thread for someone who's into collection good battle themes (people like me xD)

                      Seiken Densetsu 3 (final battle)
                      Chrono Trigger (World Revolution)
                      Radiant Historia (An Earnest Desire of Grey)
                      Final Fantasy Mystic Quest (final battle)

                      There are many other good themes but I guess it would be a little over the top to link them all xD

                      I've got a few I really like.

                      Zero (Ace Combat Zero: The Belkan War)
                      Dark Saint (Lost Odyssey)
                      Birth of a God (Final Fantasy VII)

                      All three are terrific and unique in their own way. I know in some of these games, others might think there are better boss music, but these are my personal favorite.

                      A Legend once told me that roleplaying is about bringing people together and celebrating creative vision.

                      I can't believe no one has mentioned Dreadful Fight (Final Fantasy IV).
                      As soon as you heard that beat you instantly knew s-bomb was about to get real especially how one of the bosses decides to heal your party before he fights you.

                        I think somewhere along the line I stopped listing boss music, and just listed non-boss music from a game haha. Whoops. Anyway, these are just off the top of my head, and are in no particular order.

                          I don't really listen to Boss music much, but I really enjoy the Lengend of Zelda: Skyward Sword boss music, well, most Zelda music, actually.

                          Though Kirby's Mass Attack held some pretty great music when you were punchin' up the baddies.

                              I pulled a lot of these out quickly.

                              Okami- Rising Sun
                              Kirby Returns to Dreamland- Final Battle (Actual name? Probably not)

                              Megamn X5- X vs. Zero
                              Chrono Trigger- Magus's Theme
                              Chrono Trigger- Chrono Trigger

                              About Chrono Trigger [Chrono Trigger]- Not sure it qualifies as boss music, but if you fight through Lavos's attack modes, that's the music you hear.

                              Nyeh. So many themes.
