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.

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 Digital Devil Saga 2 - Brahman Battle

"MUST WIN" :D
Final boss theme!

4 Persona 4 - Reach Out to the Truth

Really good song, although everyone mishears the lyrics

5 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 ;)

6 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

7 Romancing Saga - Minstrel Song , Saruin Battle
8 Xenoblade Chronicles - You Will Know Our Names

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.

9 Undertale - Megalovania

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

10 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?

The Contenders

11 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.

12 Final Fantasy VI - Dancing Mad

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

13 Chrono Trigger - Time of World Revolution
14 Persona 3 - Battle Hymn of the Soul
15 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!

16 Glacial - Borderlands 2
17 Dangerous Guys - Mother 3
18 Secret of Evermore - Boss Theme

Yup! Secret of evermore! ;)

19 Chrono Trigger - Boss Battle 2
20 Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga - Rookie And Popple
