Nintendo Games With the Best Soundtrack

One of the main reasons I love Nintendo is because of their AMAZING soundtracks. Today, I'll be making a list with my absolute favorite soundtracks of Nintendo. Enjoy!

The Top Ten

1 Super Mario Galaxy

Super Mario Galaxy is without a doubt, one of the best if not, the absolute best soundtrack in the Video Game Industry. Some of their tracks include, Gusty Garden, Good Egg, Stardust Road (Known as Space Junk) and my favorite, the credits. - RebelGamer

This is definitely some great music. But it's definitely not the best. Just look at Kirby Canvas Curse... That's some extraordinary music.

Not only was it my first mario game, it has my favourite music ever

Just wow, breathtaking soundtrack, composed by geniuses

2 The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time

The Legend of Zelda has had some good soundtracks since the beginning, but this game took the good tracks and amped them up. Some tracks include, Saria's Song, Bolero of Fire, Gerudo Valley and Song of Storms. - RebelGamer

3 The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask

Like Ocarina of Time, Majora's Mask also has tracks of its own tracks and moments. Tracks include, Final Hours, Song of Healing and some old songs from Ocarina but sort of remixed. - RebelGamer

4 Super Smash Bros. Brawl

Out of all the Smash Brothers in the series, this one is the best. I know Sm4sh had more tracks, but this is still the best one out of all of them. - RebelGamer

5 Super Mario 64

I think we can all agree this music started the good music in Nintendo. Some tracks include Bomb-omb Battefield, Dock Dock Bay, Bowser's Trap Theme, and the Ending theme. - RebelGamer

6 The Legend of Zelda
7 Super Smash Bros. Melee

This game started all the good music in Smash Bros. Tracks include, Final Destination, Temple Theme, Pokemon Main Theme, Pokemon Battle, and Boss Theme. - RebelGamer

8 Mario Kart: Double Dash
9 Batman: The Video Game
10 The Legend of Zelda: Wind Waker

The Contenders

11 Super Mario Galaxy 2

Like the first game, this had some original tracks of its own. Some of them were really enjoyable like, Puzzle Plank, Sky Station, Fleet Glide, and Bowser's Galaxy Generator. - RebelGamer

12 Jet Force Gemini
13 Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS and Wii U

This game a lot more music than Brawl. I know, Final Destination or Opening theme wasn't as good as Brawl, but it's not cool saying that they suck. Every Smash Bros game is epic. We enjoy the gameplay, not the looks of the opening or music. - RebelGamer

14 Perfect Dark
15 GoldenEye 007
16 Mother 3

Why this isn't higher amazes me. With this continuation of the cult class "Earthbound" the game greatly expands on its battle system with its amazing soundtrack, and this doesn't even include songs outside of battle. One of the greatest soundtracks of all time, better than OOT in my opinion.

BEST ever

17 Super Mario Bros.
18 Xenoblade Chronicles

How did I forget this!? The music in this game is epic. Especially Gaur Plains, and You Will Know Our Names


19 Super Metroid

The Brinstar and Maridia themes, enough said

(also Lower Norfair and Crateria Phase 2) - xandermartin98

20 Super Mario World
21 Tecmo Super Bowl
22 Donkey Kong Country 2: Diddys Kong Quest

Forest Interlude. That is all.

23 Kid Icarus: Uprising
24 The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword

Whoever keeps adding them, thank you for your support for this list. - RebelGamer

25 Pokémon Platinum
26 Fire Emblem: Awakening

ID Purpose.
Enough Said.

27 Kirby's Adventure
28 Undertale

This isn't nintendo

29 The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess

Trust me guys I know good music when I hear it. This is galaxy should be 1st and second

30 Mario Kart 7

Honestly, I don't know why I put this on the list. Tracks include Maple Treeway, Rainbow Road, Koopa Cape, and Rosalina's Ice World. - RebelGamer

31 Conker's Bad Fur Day
32 Henry Hatsworth In the Puzzling Adventure
33 F-Zero GX
34 Super Mario Bros. 3
35 Castlevania: Rondo of Blood
36 Pokemon X and Y

I had a tough choice between ORAS and XY, but I chose X and Y because they're original. I think the reason why I debated with ORAS is just nostalgic reason. Anyway, X and Y took a whole new level in Pokemon music. Tracks include, Lumiose City, Gym Leader Theme, Snowbelle City, and Credits theme. - RebelGamer

37 Metroid Prime
38 Earthbound
39 Kirby Super Star
40 Kirby's Dream Land
41 Cave Story
42 Sonic Colors
