Top 10 Final Boss Themes of All Time

The final boss theme is usually the best theme in the game. So good, we put them on a Top Ten list.
The Top Ten
1 Dancing Mad (Final Fantasy VI)

Before you all say "One Winged Angel is better than Dancing Mad", I want to address a few things real quick. I've played both games and to me, Dancing Mad is slightly better than One Winged Angel, in my opinion.

Firstly, which is the obvious: The theme has 4 phases. The first is fighting a giant demon, the second is fighting man, the third is fighting angels, and the fourth and final is fighting Kefka himself as a god. Each phase was crafted masterfully with excellent pitch and pacing, and it fits the tone of each fight very well.

Secondly, this is the theme for a man who wants to destroy the universe for almost no reason. Only to cause destruction. Honestly, this theme suits Kefka as One Winged Angel suits Sephiroth.

And thirdly, the guy who made this theme had NO EXPERIENCE in music. He had never studied to conduct or play an instrument. He was just playing around with it and we got this! He even said it himself in an interview. And to add on top of ...more

Nobuo is a mad genius. This song is so expertly crafted just like his other songs. Personally, I view this as perhaps the greatest video game song of all time, and if any song should be put in a video game hall of fame, it's this one.

Literal four-part concerto on SNES. Self-evident.

2 One Winged Angel (Final Fantasy VII)

Oh for crying out loud, One Winged Angel is way better than Dancing Mad!

This is way better than dancing mad!

The single best videogame song ever made. Hands. Down.

Way better than dancing mad

3 The Ultimate Show (Super Paper Mario)

This track is interesting because it mixes the tracks of those that are fused to become Super Dimentio, Dimentio, Luigi, and the Chaos Heart. Not to mention it just sound AWESOME!

So, this is the best final boss theme of all time... I love it, but I didn't think it was THIS popular. My friends are still listening to Green Hill Zone lol

Do you find it weird that one half of the boss is Dimentio, but the other half is Luigi?

I love this song it's a mix of three different themes

4 Megalovania (Undertale)

Unlike most final bosses where you play as the hero defeating the ultimate villain, you play as the villain fighting against the last barrier between you and the world's destruction. This song really makes you feel as though everything is on the line.

This song has a great drop. From encountering Undyne the Undying to here, you are no longer the hero. You are the villain.

The only reason I saw this list was to make sure megalovania was on it lol

I mean it's not s final boss

5 Bowser (Super Mario Galaxy)

It is Amazing and epic

I love this theme!

The most EPIC MUSIC OF ALL TIME! It really does indeed sound like you are saving the whole entire Universe!

6 Red (Pokemon Gold/Silver/Crystal)

Bowser can't be on red, red from pokemon g/s/c is the best music.

Red, he is the best

I am so likes red

Bowser music from smg sucks. red pokemon gold/silver/crystal is that most epic battle music.

7 Final Boss (Mario and Luigi Bowser's Inside Story)

This is easily one of the best songs to come from a Mario game

I have never played this game but this song is amazing

Best kind of music for an awesome villain like Fawful

Should be top 3

8 Ultimate Koopa (Super Mario 64)
9 Bowser (Super Mario Galaxy 2)
10 Zero Two Battle (Kirby 64: The Crystal Shards)

I would say you wouldn't be so expecting a N64 game where you control a pink marshmellow. But this theme is the best.

Second best kirby theme of all time. A piece of art, eerie and beautiful

This theme is very intridsting and his disighn

The Contenders
11 World Revolution (Chrono Trigger)
12 Serpent Eating the Ground (Bravely Default)

The amount of instruments and high pace action in the music all for a secret final boss? Phenomenal.

My personal favorite final boss theme.

13 Marx (Kirby Super Star)

I like the atmosphere

14 Ganon (The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time)
15 Ganondorf (The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess)
16 Demise of the Ritual (Shadow of the Colossus)
17 Tabuu Battle (Super Smash Bros. Brawl)
18 Master Hand (Super Smash Brothers 64)
19 Neo Exdeath (Final Fantasy V)
20 My Innermost Apocalypse (The Binding of Isaac)
21 Cantata Mortis & God In Fire (Dissidia Final Fantasy Duodecim)
22 King Dedede Battle Theme (Kirby's Dreamland)

Its bloddy Dedede, our big boi

This theme is awesome. :3

23 Giga Bowser (Super Smash Bros. Melee)
24 The Rising Sun (Okami)

Masterpiece of a final boss theme. Simply amazing
