Thread: Best Battle Theme Song

  1. #1

    Default Best Battle Theme Song

    Despite the title of this thread suggesting there's an open-ended nature to the whole thing, I'm just kind of drunk and want to ramble on about how great the battle theme for DragonQuest 8 is and convince you to play this game if you haven't.

    Click here and listen to it. Imagine you're just running around this lush-ass green world and you stumble upon some Bodkin ARchers and Dingalings smurfing trying to kill your ass but you have this music pumping you up. I mean seriously it's dope.

    And if you haven't played DragonQuest 8 then please play it, it's the best old school RPG in the past XX amount of yrs

    In your (ultimately incorrect when compared to DQ8) what is the all-time best battle theme song in RPGs?

    edit:

    I'll drop in a quick edit to say DQ8 also has the G.O.A.T. world map theme : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KWh7Qg8JRvY . Honestly an absolute beauty of a game.

    Probably SMT III: Nocturne.

    I was going to list some better tracks and then realized this pretty much covers my answer. I've honestly never really understood the appeal of DQ music, I kind of feel like it's the RPG equivalent of elevator music or easy listening. Not bad, but not exactly riveting either.

    The battle theme of the first half of Digimon World Next Order.


    I liked the battle theme from DQ7 more than DQ8

    Blinded by Light. Say what you will about FFXIII (and I'll probably agree with you) but you cannot deny that it has the best damn theme song of the whole series.

    As for JRPGs in general:
