Best RPG Battle Themes of All Time

The Top Ten

1 Final Fantasy V - Battle With Gilgamesh

Best Final Fantasy battle theme ever. Even above VI's Decisive Battle. Amazing theme for the amazing Gilgamesh. EPIC.

Clash on the big bridge theme!
Just EPIC!


2 Lufia II - Battle Theme 2

I have very fond memories of this game, and the music is a big part of those memories. Glad this made it on the list! ^_^

3 Persona 4 - Reach Out to the Truth

Really good song, although everyone mishears the lyrics

4 Persona 5 - Last Surprise

Best song ever

I like “You Will Know Our Names” more admittedly, but I consider that to be a boss theme, so I don’t count it.

5 Undertale - Megalovania

I'm sorry, but it's just too overplayed to be in the good half.

AMAZING THEME! It really goes well with the intensity of the fight and by itself a superb theme.

I was hoping this would be number 1

6 Xenoblade Chronicles - You Will Know Our Names

Dudes this needs to be higher than at least 5 because this theme is so good it doesn't even need a remix to be super good. + was in Super Smash Bros and by far one of or at least the best theme in the game.

Why isn't this higher on the list?

Xenoblade doesn't feature repetitive music and You Will Know our Names is one of the fan favorites.

7 Digital Devil Saga 2 - Brahman Battle

Final boss theme!

8 Final Fantasy Vi - Boss Theme

Battle on the Big Bridge is a great song, but not as great as this in my opinion.

Maybe the best FF game of the series. With a nice boss theme ;)

9 Final Fantasy VIII Music - The Extreme

Just the melody of the galaxy's impending destruction about to unfold. Nothing to worry about - sapphirewhirlwind

if it wasn't for sephiroth then this would have been the best villain in all of the FF series

Battle with ultimecia.
Who doesn't love it?

love it

10 Persona 3 - Battle Hymn of the Soul

The Contenders

11 Final Fantasy VI - Dancing Mad

Best song in video game history

Life... Dreams... Hope... Where do they come from? And where do they go...? Such meaningless things... I'll destroy them all!... yeah

12 Romancing Saga - Minstrel Song , Saruin Battle
13 The Last Remnant - Gates of Hell

Although the game wasn't as good as expected, the gates of hell boss music kicked asses! Who doesn't remember it after playing TLR?

14 Master Porky's Theme - Mother 3

You have been waiting for this battle the whole game (even years if you count Earthbound! ) Porky shows up when practically all the truth has been revealed, when you know all what he has caused to the world. And it couldn't be just more epic.

Sets the mood for the emotional final battle with literally Nintendo's personification of Hitler. Pure awesome for a game-boy song.

15 Chrono Trigger - Time of World Revolution
16 Final Fantasy XIII - Blinded by Light

This is the best battle song in my opinion. It sets the tone for just about any battle in FFXIII. This song and a couple of other songs from that game caused me to download the soundtrack from FFXIII. It was the first time I had done that and the FF series has had some epic tracks!

17 Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga - Rookie And Popple
18 Strong One - Mother 3
19 Glacial - Borderlands 2
20 Dangerous Guys - Mother 3
21 Secret of Evermore - Boss Theme

Yup! Secret of evermore! ;)

22 Paper Mario The Thousand Year Door - Rawk Hawk Battle

This is defiently my favorite boss theme and video game music of all time. Why? Feel the RAWK! I love this music. I love this music. Everybody loves this music. - TheThomas5252

23 Pokemon - Team Plasma grunt battle

This is a RPG boss theme

How are there no Pokemon themes here?

24 Chrono Trigger - Boss Battle 2
25 Mario & Luigi: Bowser's Inside Story - Final Boss

Why is this always so low it is a AAA masterpiece!

26 Fate/Serious - Mother 3
27 Undertale - Hopes and Dreams/SAVE the World

The best point is that it start off with just some violins and then guitars and everything are just thrown in, it matches the battle perfectly and gives you a extreme feel of hope

One of the best rpg battle themes I've heard. It really encompasses the magnitude of the fight and how epic it is.

28 Undertale - Enemy Approaching
29 Earthbound - New Age Retro Hippie
30 Undertale - Spider Dance
31 Xenoblade Chronicles - Mechanical Rhythm
32 Pokemon - Kanto Champion Battle

More better than every game battle music

33 Final Fantasy VI - The Battle
34 Mario & Luigi: Dream Team - Try, Try Again
35 Bravely Default - Conflict's Chime
36 Terranigma - Final Boss Theme

Terranigma is My favorite game, It bears so much nostalgia for me, and the gmaes astonishing soundtrack is rounded off perfectly With the epic lasst boss theme, that includes bits of the worlds most epic game intro theme ever created. The intro theme of Terranigma is unparalleled

37 Wild ARMs 2 - Battle Knight Blazer
38 Wild ARMs 3 - Losing the Inescapable Nightmare, an Unending Reality
39 2nd Super Robot Wars Original Generation - Despair
40 Fire Emblem Radiant Dawn - A Grasping Truth
41 Lost Odyssey - Roar of the Departed Souls
42 Mario & Luigi: Partners In Time - Elder Princess Shroob
43 Strong One (Masked Man) - Mother 3
44 Chrono Trigger - The Final Battle
45 Undertale - Your Best Nightmare/Finale

The transition of this theme from the beggining of the fight until the end really goes with the entire fight. Though a remix of a song heard during the game, it's still amazing.

47 Bravely Default - Wicked Flight
48 Undertale - Death By Glamour
49 Undertale - Battle Against A True Hero
