Top 10 Video Game Boss Themes

The best boss themes from games that I've played...except one cause although I've never played the game, the song's hilarious.

The Contenders: Page 2

21 Final Destination - Super Smash Bros.
22 The Sun Rises - Okami

I was shocked when I saw how low this song was. Probably the most underrated piece of music in video game history. - tonyb500

Listen to it. Just LISTEN to it. NOW. Words simply CAN NOT describe this.

And watch the boss battle too, because that's interesting. :P

23 Galacta Knight - Kirby Super Star Ultra
24 Gangplank Galleon - Donkey Kong Country

They've managed to get the perfect tune for a pirate theme. Whenever I hear this I think of pirates at sea.

This song starts like a normal pirate theme, then it gets more epic.

25 Lechku & Nechku - Okami
26 It's Finished - Mother 3
27 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

28 Id (Purpose) - Fire Emblem Awakening

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

29 Masked Dedede - Kirby Super Star Ultra
30 Baby Bowser (Final Form) - Yoshi's Island Baby Bowser (Final Form) - Yoshi's Island

Easy to make a rock remix of this track. - tonyb500

How is this so low? It's awesome!

31 Dragon Slaying Battle - Paper Mario The Thousand Year Door
32 Demon Lord Ninetails - Okami
33 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.

34 Rawk Hawk - Paper Mario The Thousand Year Door

Throw up your rawkfist! If you're ready, let's drop this! Wrong song? - RiverClanRocks
