I contribute to a minor gaming site and I'm undertaking a big project - a top 100 list of RPG battle music. Since I've only played a fraction of all the RPGs out there I'm looking to compile this list from as big a pool of opinions as possible. So what are your favorites?

They can be from either Japanese or Western games. They can be either turn-based, action, or tactical RPGs. It can be a normal theme or a special one which only played for one specific fight. And the only limit I'll be enforcing is only 2 songs per game will be allowed on the final list. So, feel free to give me as many suggestions as you wish so long as you genuinely believe they're among the top 100 of all time. Thanks, all.

I've always really liked the sega CD Lunar 2 boss theme. Very punchy and dramatic.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xoYn8PtSHwM

Final boss music is pretty great as well
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TXujWObRvJw

The remix of Integral Body Imperfect Soul from Star Ocean 2 is pretty amazing as well.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0pmLhCBjNGQ&nohtml5=False

Also, not retro but Etrian Odyssey 3's boss theme is one of the best ever.

Nikki was such a mistake. The first two hours I had him I thought he was a woman. The name, the look. Neither fits in with the CT universe at all. It's like you're playing Dragon Quest 3 and all of a sudden AC/DC just shows up and everyone acts like it's normal. It's not.

But the CT universe isn't the same as the CC one which is already a crazy mishmash. That's a lot of it's charm. He's no weirder than a skeleton clown, an alien or a turnip party member.

as in you are a peasant, a plebeian, a background character, you're expendable, boring, replaceable, average, mundane

if you were an artist you'd be a wage slave animating little 3d models for someone better than you

if you were a game designer you'd be making little cellphone games about cartoon animals or small colorful objects

if you were to get married you'd find some average girl with slight imperfections and insecurities that make you feel comfortable, and you'd both cheat on each other and learn to forgive and forget because you have no integrity or any sense of real ambition or pride. You know you don't deserve better, and you'll never surpass your own expectations of others

you're just another shitty little floater drifting along on the wave, never to be able to imagine and actualize your own world, because you simply have no existing potential to utilize

you're nothing more than meat, tricked and manipulated so someone else can benefit from your mediocrity, and there's a billion more just like you

Doesn't help that he's named Slash in japanese, if some translator hack didn't mess with Trigger it wouldn't have been a problem.
>Neither fits in with the CT universe at all.
Has it never dawned on you that Cross and Trigger are not in the same universe or even dimension at all?
>>3120002
>why couldn't Chrono Cross just do it right like SF did
SaGa Frontier's premise and general mood is like that of old sci-fi anime like Cyber City Oedo, where crazy technology and magic or fantastic beings like vampires coexist, Chrono Cross is more wacky in nature and the elements are more balanced in favor of fantasy rather than sci-fi, which is arguably a very minor portion of the game, SF works because there's enough of both elements that coexist harmoniously everywhere, CC uses sci-fi as surprise element and doesn't make non-human party members like Turnip, Sprigg or Grobyc common elements of the scenario, but rather funky exceptions to the rule.

Think about it, every region of SF, especially Koorong, Manhattan, Tanzer or Scrap has a mixture of almost every race and it has distinct features, tone and scenario, Koorong is a classic cyberpunk slum with glowing neon signs and in a perpetual night, Manhattan is a superfuturistic Manhattan with robots, skyscrapers and corrupted megacorporations, the Magic Kingdom is a typical medieval fantasy village with Furdo's eerie workshop, Fascinaturu is a stereotyped vampire village with a rather gothic castle full of mystics and magical beings such as Kurenai or Gozarus.

Chrono Cross takes place in an archipelago where the only distinct difference in tone was finding out Chronopolis, the dimensional rift and places like the Dragon Fort, everything else was very coherent in the scenario context, a swamp, a beach, a volcano, pirate ships and a city created by the invaders who colonized the islands, it simply isn't daring enough to make the cast work.

You'd have a great point there if I didn't make most of my money through commercial illustration and commissioned artwork. But hey, continue to feel special over your preference in video game music. I'm sure it's very fulfilling or something.

Because reasons, I won't post FFIII's battle music, even though it's my favourite.
Instead, here're two from Sega CD games I used to just sit around and listen to rather than play the game instead:

Sheena's battle theme from Dark Wizard:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tzLcGv9l1NY

Lunar 1 boss battle theme:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PpmKupF45Vw

There was some classical piece I can't remember the name of that sounded damned near identical to it,

I also like the Vay boss battle music because it reminds of every Japanese 80s and 90s action cartoon ever.

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
Each of those is strong nostalgia for me. Well, except FFIII. I can't read rune and I only played the translated rom in 2001 or so. Can't really be nostalgic for it.
