The Fire Emblem Theme, from Path of Radiance.

The Fire Emblem Theme is a musical track which acts as the main anthem for the entire Fire Emblem series. It was originally composed for Fire Emblem: Shadow Dragon and the Blade of Light by either Yuka Tsujiyoko or Hirokazu Tanaka, and its use as that game's title screen theme has continued as a tradition by the majority of Fire Emblem games since. In many games, several other tracks also incorporate fragments of the theme.

List of uses in games

Fire Emblem series

  • Fire Emblem: Shadow Dragon and the Blade of Light
    • Opening Title - Demo: The game's main theme, played on the title screen and class role, is the original version of the Fire Emblem theme.
    • Story 6 - Marth and Caeda's Conversation: This low-key rendition of the Theme plays over the final cutscene after clearing the Endgame.
    • Ending (Parade): This slow version of the Theme plays over the character endings after the credits roll.
  • Fire Emblem Gaiden
