Boss Themes

Post your favorites. Non-combat themes for bosses are okay as well.

This thread exists because my phone's shuffle was obsessed with this track today:

Starts off a bit slow, which makes perfect sense in context, but really picks up around a minute to a minute and a half in.

One of the best boss themes in the franchise. It fits the situation, being forced to kill one of your friends.

Dunno how this wasn't my first thought considering it's been my standard for epic boss themes basically forever.

A couple immediately spring to mind.

Titan Souls is entirely about bosses, so naturally it has some great fights and themes. Not to mention the best title for a boss theme ever:

I love hearing final boss music in particular. This could be my favorite

3:04 - 3:25 is when I get frisson. It really gives you a sense of urgency when it's your turn and you're thinking what to do before Ultimecia can **** you up.

Mind if I include a shameless plug?
Here's a few tracks from the game I worked on. I had nothing to do with the music and it's the best part of the game.

This gives me a heavy Donkey Kong/AVGN Adventures vibe for some reason. Maybe like DK at a rave with the AVGN or something.

Ook isn't even a full boss, but they gave him one of the best themes in the entire series:

There's a lot of competition, so it's hard to say this for sure, but I think this is my favorite theme for a battle where two divine wolves fight time-controlling aristocratic demon owls.

Dragon in Skyrim count as bosses, right?
