Smash Bros Roster Music Theme Thread

Hey all! I had an idea for an activity to keep us occupied for a while as we wait for Smash Ultimate. We all know music is an integral part of video games, and every major character in them has some piece of music associated with them. That certainly goes for the entire Smash cast! But for any given character, you have to wonder: what is the definitive music theme for them? What strain represents them the best? Well, I’d like for us to try and answer that for all the confirmed characters and see what we come up with.

So what I’m going to do is create a list, and update it every so often to include all the suggestions we get. I’ll start us off with a few obvious ones, but I won’t go overboard, as I want this to be a group effort. I’ll include every serious suggestion we get and the name of the member who suggested it, but at some point, if one character gets a long list going, we may want to determine a frontrunner. So, if you think you have a better option than what’s already suggested, please go ahead and post it, and if you want, make the case why yours is the best. If you can, please link a video or something to your post so we can listen to your suggestion.

So a couple of suggestions for guidelines… Your suggestion doesn’t have to play by these rules, but it might help guide us to the best options.

  • Characters that already have a specific theme associated with them should probably use that. It might be a battle theme, a strain played often when they appear, or it might just be called “_______’s Theme”. It might not be the most iconic piece of music, but it should have priority nonetheless.
  • The music doesn’t have to be present in the Smash series, or even necessarily from video games. It’s possible that some characters, such as Pokémon, have music associated with them from anime or movies, or some other medium. If that’s ever the case, feel free to post that too.
  • Characters that don’t have a specific piece of music custom tailored to them should probably use something that is immediately associated with them, whether it be a theme for the series as a whole or from the game they appeared in.
  • No two characters should have the same exact theme. Yes, I know some separate fighters are technically the same person, but I think we can come up with something unique even for them.
  • There may be multiple versions of a character’s theme. If that’s the case, go ahead and post your favorite version. We don’t have to stay in the 8-Bit era if the music is that old (unless that suits you, of course).

So, let’s get to it! Here’s the list:

Mario – Super Mario Bros Ground Theme - Farbietfromme

Donkey Kong – Donkey Kong Theme (DKCR Remix) - Farbeitfromme

Link – Legend of Zelda Theme - Farbietfromme

Samus

So, I’ll go first. I’ve included suggestions for Mario, Donkey Kong, Link, Dark Samus, Zelda, Ganondorf, Ike, Little Mac, and Ridley. If you think any of these are the wrong choices, please say so and suggest an improvement.

In any case, I look forward to listening to your suggestions! Have fun!

For Robin, there's a plentiful amount of themes you could choose from in Fire Emblem Awakening. I feel that the Ablaze themes work especially well since the "war" or "battle" vibes you get from the songs correlate to his position of the Shepherds as lead tactician/strategist. Then again, Robin makes an appearance in Fire Emblem Fates through his Super Smash Bros. amiibo, and the battle theme they chose for when you fight against him is Id Hope. That's essentially "Robin's Theme", and I wholeheartedly agree. It uses bits of other Awakening songs, and what better song to have as a theme than a mix of several songs from the game he starred in? There's no more well-suited song to serve as his theme, if you ask me.
