Top 10 Video Game Boss Themes


The Contenders: Page 2

21 Lechku & Nechku - Okami
22 Alphys Takes Action - Undertale

Really, REALLY underrated song and probably the all-time greatest and most jaw-droppingly epic usage of leitmotif I've ever heard.

Honestly, both the song and fight kind of put Sans' to shame. - xandermartin98

24 It's Finished - Mother 3
25 Dragon Slaying Battle - Paper Mario The Thousand Year Door

Great song, not to mention it plays when you fight yourself from the future on the back of a dragon god - izayaorihara

27 One Winged Angel - Kingdom Hearts 2
28 Demon Lord Ninetails - Okami
29 Zanza - Xenoblade Chronicles

That ominous beginning lets you know that this god is not messing around, and then the jazz piano kicks in. Normally it would be considered terrible once that happens, but the way in which it's played is so moving. Then the chorus and electric guitar happen, and then you KNOW you are dealing with a god. Then it turns sad, almost pitiful, even. It serves to tell the tragedy of a man who wanted to be a god, succeeded, but is now consumed by his own power, and is a hypocrite in saying the Hons have no right to be a god, when they have been through much more than Zanza has ever seen. It includes all of the instruments that immediately make something awesome, like electric guitars, violins, and an ominous chorus that ties the whole theme together.

30 King Neptune - The Spongebob Squarepants Movie

Boss summary: You're fighting a mind-controlled god in the krusty krab (which kinda turned into a rock-and-roll concert) with rock-and-roll music. Do I need to say anything else?

31 The Ultimate Show - Super Paper Mario

I was going to vote kirby 64 but this theam is much cooler... And the boss too! - power341

33 Boss Battle - Super Mario Sunshine
34 Blizzeta - The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess
35 Dark Meta Knight - Kirby and the Amazing Mirror / Boss Battle - Kirby 64
36 Escaping Gotha - Medal of Honor: Frontline

Gets very climatic once you encounter Sturmgiest. Gets very uplifting once he's dead.

The 2nd half of this piece of music plays in the level Stealing the Show in which the player must eliminate the main baddie Rudolf Ulbricht von Stuemgeist and escape the Nazi airfield with the experemental HO-IX jet fighter.

37 Demise of the Ritual - Shadow of the Colossus
38 Cackletta - Final Battle - Mario and Luigi Superstar Saga
39 Ganon - The Legend of Zelda Ocarina of Time
40 Counterattack - Shadow of the Colossus
