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 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!

It's a classic

2 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 best boss theme ever

3 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 how ...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.

4 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!

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

This theme is just great.

5 Marx (Kirby Super Star)

I like the atmosphere

6 Bowser (Super Mario Galaxy)

Better than SMG2 in my opinion one of Mario's most dramatic themes.

It is Amazing and epic

I love this theme!

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

My favorite final boss theme ever, so iconic and honestly beautiful, one of the most unique final boss themes too.

Just listen to it. That's all you need to do

Should be top 3

8 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

9 Bowser (Super Mario Galaxy 2)

This theme makes you pumped up and feels just so epic. wish the fight was longer

10 Tabuu Battle (Super Smash Bros. Brawl)
The Contenders
11 It Has To Be This Way (Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance)

How the &*^& is this not number 1?! I mean Bowser, king dedede and TABUU over this?! I mean Bowser has amazing music so does dedede but... this music even so a Bowser theme over rising sun from okami...

Ridiculous, over the top, absolutely silly, fits perfectly.

12 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

13 Serpent Eating the Ground (Bravely Default)

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

A perfect representation of what a final boss theme is supposed to be.

My personal favorite final boss theme.

14 World Revolution (Chrono Trigger)
15 Master Hand (Super Smash Brothers 64)
16 Final Destination (Super Smash Bros. Brawl)

Best Final Destination theme. Has no business being as good as it is. If it were the final boss theme of any other game it would be an undisputed top ten.

17 Hopes And Dreams (Undertale)

Truly encapsulates the ending of a journey and you're struggle to save everyone you fought so hard to befriend.

18 Ganon (The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time)
19 Ganondorf (The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess)
20 Live and Learn (Sonic Adventure 2)
21 Giga Bowser (Super Smash Bros. Melee)
22 Neo Exdeath (Final Fantasy V)
23 My Innermost Apocalypse (The Binding of Isaac)
24 King Dedede Battle Theme (Kirby's Dreamland)
25 Cantata Mortis & God In Fire (Dissidia Final Fantasy Duodecim)
