Haven't seen Part 4? Click here to do so.

This continues the article series on my Top 70! Here's a small recap of what I'm doing:

I decided that each game may only have 1 song. This is because RPGs often have more than one boss theme.

In ordering, I started with my top 70 and said to myself "If I wanted to make a top 10, which of these could never be out of the top 10?" and kept going down by 10s until the list was completed.

Let's go!

Kirby's Dream Land – King Dedede

The first time I heard this, I was hooked. After beating all of Dedede's goons, you launch an assault on Mt. Dedede and face the king of all evil: a giant penguin with a hammer. Epic and catchy.

Kingdom Hearts II - Sinister Shadows (1000 Heartless)

Sora and the gang have to take out 1000 Heartless to this tune. It's quite the song and I like how different it is for a boss theme. (Fess-up time! From what I've read after I compiled this list, this isn't considered a boss theme because there's no one main boss creature. However, I think that fighting a multitude of small enemies does count as being worthy of a boss battle, so I included it here anyway.)

Sonic the Hedgehog 3 – Final Boss

I guess Sonic didn't beat Robotnik once and for all last time. Well, this time, he's really gonna give him something to remember. Take your time and don't lose your concentration! Admittedly, sorta hard since your heart is pounding to the beat.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles IV: Turtles in Time – Super Shredder (Final Boss)

People don't understand why I was so angry at the Turtles in Time "remake" taking out all the original music. This is why. What replaced this had none of the soul or energy this had.

StarTropics II: Zoda's Revenge – Battle with Zoda (Final Boss)

A game that has had way too few fans, for sure. Featuring the original Mike Jones (who?) busting up space alien ass long before it was the "in" thing to do, this is the moment of the ultimate rematch with his nemesis from the first game, Zoda.

Star Fox 64 – Star Wolf Theme

You only get to square off against Star Wolf a few times in the game, but their legacy is preserved by their awesome theme. Which you get to destroy them to. Hah.

Brave Fencer Musashi - Skullpion

Musashi goes one-on-one with the Crest Guardian, Skullpion, in a small pit while it breaths fire and tries to smoosh him flat. It's a lengthy battle, but the music goes a long way.

Plants vs. Zombies – Brainiac Maniac (Dr. Zomboss' Theme)

Often, I don't hear music in games because I'm way too focused on kicking the ass of the boss in front of me. That's why I'm glad I didn't miss this neo-classic (imo) boss theme. I'm a big fan of piano work and it's all over this one. It's a really game-y piece, too. Awesome one that I'm sure some of you missed.

Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons of Libery – Yell Dead Cell (Boss)

This is the first Metal Gear Solid game I played (practically) and the only Metal Gear Solid game that I've beaten, but not the only one I've played. As soon as I came into contact with the first boss, Fatman, and this started going off when he roller-bladed away to plant bombs, I was completely entranced.

Final Fantasy VII – Still More Fighting (Boss Theme)

Final Fantasy VII was an experience to behold, yes. This still holds up as one of my top RPG battle themes. It has all the upbeat highs that you could ask for and just before going back to the main theme, it has a twinge of "am I gonna make it out" before it pumps you back up again. Everyone knows this one.
