Top 10 Final Boss Themes of All TimeThe final boss theme is usually the best theme in the game. So good, we put them on a Top Ten list.
The Top Ten Final Boss Themes of All Time
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.
Oh for crying out loud, One Winged Angel is way better than Dancing Mad! - Kefka
This is way better than dancing mad!
Way better than dancing mad
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
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!
Do you find it weird that one half of the boss is Dimentio, but the other half is Luigi?
Needs to be 1st.
The most EPIC MUSIC OF ALL TIME! It really does indeed sound like you are saving the whole entire Universe! - HeavyDonkeyKong
It is Amazing and epic
I love this theme!
Three words: LISTEN. TO. THIS!
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 Music Is Awesome.
The best boss theme ever
Red, he is the best - mewtwo1
I am so likes red - mewtwo1
Bowser can't be on red, red from pokemon g/s/c is the best music. - mewtwo1
Bowser music from smg sucks. red pokemon gold/silver/crystal is that most epic battle music. - mewtwo1
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

Second best kirby theme of all time. A piece of art, eerie and beautiful
I would say you wouldn't be so expecting a N64 game where you control a pink marshmellow. But this theme is the best.

Masterpiece of a final boss theme. Simply amazing
Best sonic final boss next to dark gai a phase 2 and nega wisp phase 2
One good thing that this game had.
This theme totally describes your fighting a wicked trickster and the other ones are completely disturbing.
Total rushing boss music.
Ridiculous, over the top, absolutely silly, fits perfectly.
My favorite final boss theme in gaming
I carved my own paaath!
You followed your wraaath!
Clearly good 16-bit electric guitar.
This is so epic, it fits the mood well also
This song is amazing.
The entirety of EarthBound is often overlooked by other RPG's, but this song is on the same tier as One-Winged Angel and In The Final
So epic! - MaxPap
Hell yes. Cave Story's music is absolutely incredible, and the final boss theme is easily one of the best songs in the entire game, I love this song so much
This game has an incredible soundtrack and the final battle against Primal Dialga is a perfect climax with its music
Honestly, this song is even more badass than Megalovania and the final boss theme of Yoshi's Island mixed TOGETHER. Holy Christ, that is kickass. - xandermartin98
