01. Batman

Boss Theme (TDKMIX)

Batman on the NES – This was the tune back in the day, fast passed, good bass and drum beat, you were instantly pumped up for a tough as nails boss fight with the Jokers deadliest henchmen.

02. Battletoads

Battletoads in Battlemaniacs: Final Boss

Surlaw:
A treat of a final song using the amazing capabilities of the SNES sound system.  So few ever made it this far in one of the hardest games in the Battletoads saga, and for the ones that did this was the anthem of an amazing final conflict.

Lou:
It's truly great we have the chance to listen to this tune even if we didn't get this far in this incredibly hard game. I've always wonder how this game ended! :D

03. Metal Gear

ESCAPE! Big Boss Fight

Surlaw:
Finally, Solid Snake has reached and destroyed the Metal Gear computer, only to have a self destruct sequence start counting down and have to face one final surprise boss.  From the fight to trying to guess which of three elevators would let you escape, the tune keeps you on the edge of your seat until the very end.

Lou:
I've been waiting to include this tune in a compilation and it couldn't be a better way to release it than the Boss Battle volume. Again, Konami music on the NES is truly briliant.

04. Ninja Gaiden

Final Boss

Often overlooked the Game Boy was also capable of creating some amazing chip tune tracks.  This one in particular keep you fire up for the final conflict in Ninja Gaiden, and hoping the batteries in your Game Boy didn’t die!

05. Chrono Trigger

Magus Boss Fight

You finally did it; you reached Magus and now its time to stop him from bringing up Lavos.  This was the middle point of the game and the first real epic fight of the game.  Defeating Magus took skill and cunning, and then revealed the full plot of the game to our hero’s.

06. Destiny of an Emperor

Battle Warlord

Surlaw:
This music would play when you were thrust into combat with a named general, not just a no body band of rouges, but a big player in Ancient China.  The Warlords would usually know tactics that could seriously damage your troops in no time if you weren’t careful.  That being said the music starts off with a faster pace alerting you to the importance of this fight and really gets your blood pumping!

Lou:
This track reminds me so much of Duck Tales (also by Capcom) only this one is darker. I'd bet it's the same guys behind both soundtracks.

07. Destiny of an Emperor

Battle Commander

The commanders aren’t as serious a threat as Warlords are, but they are no pushovers either.  This tune is still upbeat but bluesier sounding then the Warlord music.  Plus that little breakdown part in the middle of the song is just awesome!

08. Dynasty Warriors 6

Theme of LUBU DW6 ReMIX

Said to be stronger then 1000 men, Dynasty Warriors fans know that when Lu Bu shows up, you are going to die.  Every time Lu Bu enters the stage the music switches to his fast passed theme music.  A warrior so tough that only a few hits from his weapon will take you out!  Take charge and let the rock theme get you pumped up and ready for the fight of your life.

09. Mega Man 9

Boss Music

Surlaw:
A nice little addition to this ultra hard Mega Man game is this little space age tune that lets you know its go time.  Mega Man 9 was created to be the hardest game of them all, and this tune fits it well.

Lou:
The guys over at 2A03.org are discussing MM9 a lot. Go there and check it out. Also check out this MM9 interview with musician Ippo Yamda!

10. Castlevania II - Simon’s Quest

Dracula Theme

A nice little upbeat tune for the final moments of this epic game.  Keep your aim steady and true Simon and you try and land the final hit on the Lord of Darkness!

11. Zelda II - The Adventures of Link

Guardian Theme

Surlaw:
This piece of music is played for each guardian you face trying to get the 6 crystals throughout the game.  From facing a giant fire dragon to a horse headed knight, this music lets you know its time to get serious!  Save Zelda!

Lou:
This whole soundtrack was so amazing back in the day. I played this game for months, many times just to listen to all great tunes, this one being one of my all-time favorites.

12. Maximum Carnage

Major Villain Boss Music

I have a confessed love for all the songs in this game, but this is the top pick.  Just listen to that riff at the beginning and you are pumped for whooping some baddies and saving NY.  A classic beat’em up track.

13. Destiny of an Emperor

Major Boss Theme

This is IT!  If this music plays you are entering combat with one of the three major rulers during the Three Kingdoms period of Chinese history.  You only hear this music 2 or 3 times in the game, usually right after finishing up a tough battle with several Warlords.  It plays after a long and bloody battle with Taishi Ci (???) when you are forced to fight Sun Quan (??) one after the other with no rest.  Truly music fit for an Emperor!

14. TMNT 4: Turtles in Time

Super Shredder Fight Theme

Surlaw:
The entire game comes down to this final moment, you have killed Krang, totaled the Technodrome, routed Rocksteady and beaten Bebop for this final showdown with the Shredder.  Tranforming right before your eyes, and they eyes of the Statue of Liberty, he attacks with speed and life ending moves.  Saddle up turtles, the world is counting on you to defeat him!  This track starts off with a cool little intro before throwing things into Hyperdrive.

Lou:
Believe it or not, I've been waiting with this arcade track from the very first volume. I wanted to fire up Vol. 10 with this song, but when Surlaw told me he was making a boss theme compilation I just had to release it on this volume! This truly is one of the best boss tracks ever composed.

15. Batman

Joker Fight Theme (TDKMIX)

To finish up back with where we began I dug up this little heard classic.  The Jokes is intent to smear a smile on Batman’s face in this final showdown, but is defeated and leaves us asking the ultimate question, “Why so Serious?”
