Top 10 Video Game Songs That Are Split Into Two Or More Parts

xandermartin98
It can be either a general theme made up of multiple songs, or a single song with parts of itself that are so wildly different from each other that they still qualify regardless

(Don't worry, I'll add Undertale's Pacifist/Neutral final boss themes very soon, assuming that someone else doesn't do it before me)

The Top Ten

1 Dancing Mad - Final Fantasy Vi

Probably the all-time greatest usage of symphonic classical orchestra as a video game boss theme; no more needs to be said - xandermartin98

2 Sephiroth Battle - Final Fantasy VII

As UNBELIEVABLY overrated as the game and villain that this song is associated with are (seriously, even Undertale is NOTHING compared to this in terms of hype levels, despite UT actually being pretty GOOD overall as a game as long as you play it right), you simply CANNOT deny how ridiculously epic this collection of songs is

If you count Jenova Absolute as the first phase of the theme, then that alone is easily one of THE most epic boss themes ever and is actually a pretty brilliant usage of leitmotif seeing as how it's ACTUALLY the game's standard battle theme but reversed...
Birth Of A God is just plain head-bangingly bad-arse and arguably the song most fitting for Sephiroth's overall personality out of the three...
and last but not least, as much as I absolutely LOATHED Sephiroth's final form due to only having exactly one status-ailment-preventing Ribbon when fighting him, it probably goes without saying that boss themes simply cannot GET much more epic than ...more - xandermartin98

3 Lavos Battle - Chrono Trigger

Opens up with only the most classic of apocalyptic doomsday themes when you fight Lavos' face at the beginning of the fight (that is IF you're fighting him the normal way), then starts to become massively more upbeat and bombastic when you go inside Lavos' body and duke it out with his outer core, then finally ascends into techno-trance heaven once you finally bring out his inner core (needless to say, the entire theme is just perfect the whole way through, without even mentioning the immensely iconic scream effect that plays in the final phase) - xandermartin98

4 Ganondorf Battle - The Legend Of Zelda: Ocarina Of Time

The music that plays during his first phase (the one where Link plays sword tennis with him) is arguably even more epic than that of his dual-Golden-Giant's-Knife-wielding second phase (which, believe me, is saying QUITE a lot in this case) - xandermartin98

5 Sloprano (The Great Mighty Poo's Theme) - Conker's Bad Fur Day

Becomes progressively more intense as he becomes angrier - xandermartin98

6 Hyrule Field - The Legend Of Zelda: Twilight Princess

The transition that this song makes between its day/night phases is just so ridiculously smooth that it's almost otherworldly (actually makes me very seriously question whether or not the Ocarina Of Time HF theme actually IS as good as people say it is) - xandermartin98

7 Brinstar - Super Metroid

Notable for both halves of it (Upper/Green and Lower/Red) individually being arguably the overall best-executed atmospheric compositions in the entire series (which again, is saying QUITE a lot here), as well as being the (almost) literal polar opposites of each other in terms of tone yet still blending together seamlessly into one big song (seriously, that complete 180 of a tonal shift that occurs when Samus transitions from Green Brinstar into Red Brinstar still gives me chills to this day) - xandermartin98

8 Gangplank Galleon - Donkey Kong Country

Anyone who's actually played this game all the way through knows for a FACT that despite how pitifully easy this fight is overall, the sudden transition that it makes from "stereotypical jolly pirate music" into "seafaring heavy metal" is hands-down THE absolute greatest and most memorable moment of both the game itself AND its soundtrack - xandermartin98

9 Metroid Prime Battle - Metroid Prime

Is downright terrifying in the first phase (his very distinctly spider-shaped exoskeleton form), then becomes just plain awesome in the second (his even more distinctly jellyfish-shaped true form) - xandermartin98

10 Jungle Hijinks - Donkey Kong Country Jungle Hijinks - Donkey Kong Country

Deserves credit here for being one of the very first video game songs to have distinctive day/night sections (in one of the very first GAMES to actually have a naturally flowing day/night cycle) as well as being incredibly iconic and memorable in both phases (as well as downright bone-chilling once it goes into the night phase) - xandermartin98
