So the closest thing to a "Boss Theme" in Ace Attorney is the ~allegro~ version of the Cross Examination theme, when it gets all intense, usually because you're finally cross examining the actual murderer and have them on the ropes. And Dai Gyakuten Saiban (the unlocalized Sherlock Holmes crossover) has by far the best one in the series, because it has the best musical and artistic direction in the series, because it's a spiritual successor to PLvAA:

I love this OST so goddamn much.

Super Paper Mario has so many stellar boss themes, however - call me basic, but - the final one is the best.

I would be deeply surprised if this hasn't already been posted somewhere in this sea of dead links.

I don't even know where to begin. There too many really, really good boss themes that I enjoy. I don't have the time to go through them all right now so I'm just going to start with "He of the Name" from Bravely Default:

NieR: Automata has one of those dangerous OSTs where I'll end up listening to almost the entire thing if I go looking for any part of it. I've already changed which track I'm posting three times, so I'm just going to stop now and say that it could easily have been any other boss theme. They're all amazing.

I could probably pick any of the boss themes from Shovel Knight, but since this one is based off of my favorite level theme, I had to pick it. The Black Knight fight in the Tower of Fate was also a close consideration.

Love the mini-boss and big boss themes from Yoshi's Island





The music was absolute GARBAGE in Yoshi's Island DS and Yoshi's New Island.

so, from a recent game....



Yeah, this is quite different for a boss theme. Easily one of the best boss fights in the game.

Since I've already posted "Your Contract has Expired" in other threads, let's go with:

Anytime someone shows a Final Fantasy song, I'm going to point out the Final Fantasy XIV version if it exists. Because if there's at least one thing that game does amazingly correct, it's the music.

Part II

Every time I see a video of MMORPG gameplay I get this massive, massive itch to get back into WoW or get into another MMORPG.

Thankfully I have never acted upon these impulses. But I’d be lying if I said they weren’t strong.

It's entirely possible that TWEWY won't live up to my memory of it when they release the remaster later in the year, but at least I know the music will always hold up.
