  • For Naruto theme songs, GO!!! (Fighting Dreamers) and Hero's Come Back!! seem to qualify.
    • I'll see you those and raise you the Season 2 opening, Haruka Kanata.
      • Haruka Kanata was so highly regarded that when the dub finally used song for the openings after two seasons of the Narm Charm theme "Rise" (albeit mashed up with third opening's visuals), the whole fandom's was BLOWN AWAY.
    • "Re:member" this one?
    • The Fifth Season Opener, Seishun Kyosokyoku's melancholy sound and sadly wistful lyrics perfectly captured the feeling of the series at that point, as Team 7 slowly began it final collapse.
    • Don't forget the sixth, No Boy, No Cry by STANCE PUNKS. The accompanying animation in which Naruto takes a flying leap off Hokage Rock is especially good in the dub (lacking the original's prominently superimposed "TV Tokyo" logo).
      • Version linked is a hilarious Music Video by the original group, just as good as the intro animation- and far less likely to be randomly removed in one of Youtube's "anime purges".
        • It's gone now.
          • Not anymore!
    • Don't forget The Raising Fighting Spirit, which has a habit of showing up and making moments even more epic than they already were.
    • That one is good, but Strong And Strike tops it.
    • Three words. Heaven. Shaking. Event. Which is actually just a longer term for BAD & ASS.
    • In Shippuden premeire, where Sasori and Deidara approach Suna, the music that plays in the background... You just know the sand ninja have no idea what's coming at them.
    • "Beautiful Green Wild Beast", played when Rock Lee opens up a massive can of whoopass. Pity it never lasts.
    • Hell, nearly the entirety of the soundtrack can qualify since it's a really good fusion of modern music and traditional Japanese instruments.
    • Apparently (This Troper has been unable to find video evidence), the Naruto soundtrack was so epic that several pieces made appearances during the 2008 Beijing Olympic games.
    • "Reverse Situation"This song really blew me away big time; the tune amplified the awesomeness of Sakura/Chiyo x Sasori battle tenfold. It's just that amazing.
    • Orochimaru's theme. Both versions. Hands down.
    • "Blue Bird" by ikimono-gakari.
    • "Man of the World", "Hidden Will to Fight", "Anger", and "Nightfall". That is all.
    • Though by no means upbeat, "Sadness and Sorrow" epicly touching.
    • Bacchikoi. Even if it doesn't seem that good the first time, it becomes an Ear Worm after repeated hearings.
    • "Naruto Main Theme".
    • The fourth Shippuden Opening, Joe Inoue's CLOSER, is a beautiful song in and of itself. When combined with Asuma's you should know this by now, but final fight with Hidan catapults it into CMoA status. Also works well as a NaruHina piece, This Troper finds.
    • This song is called victory is played on real cool bits like when Naruto passes Kakashi's test
    • My ANSWER is surprisingly catchy and relaxing.
    • I dedicate this song To You All.
    • The band little by little made an opening song for Naruto & a closing song for Naruto Shippuuden that are both made of epic f'ing awesome. Here's the first and the second.
    • You know what made the 3-on-1 fight between Sarutobi, Orochimaru and the two deceased Hokages sound more dangerous and exciting and totally kickass? The Heavy Violence. And you know the part where Sarutobi is talking to Orochimaru about the Konoha villagers and how the Will of Fire will never fade? Yeah that part, which makes this troper feel moved all the time.
    • In Naruto, there are themes that have been made for the different parts of the day and activity. There's a theme for morning, a theme for daylight, a theme for the afternoon, and a theme for the evening. There's also a theme for Naruto's daily activities.
    • And then there's music for laughs like Naruto's Sexy no Jutsu, and slapsticks.
    • Then there is music of the scene in which Madara reveals himself alongside Pain, easily surpassing any previous Ominous Latin Chanting piece of the series. Holy crap, you know those guys mean business.
    • The sixth intro to Shippuden, Sign by FLOW. This troper really disliked the song at first, but then it grew on him after awhile. Felt like he'd blasphemed upon hearing it was a FLOW song he'd initially disliked.
    • Akatsuki's theme in Shippuden. You KNOW you're in trouble when you hear that. (Word of warning, turn off the notations.)
    • Pain's theme. Ominous Latin Chanting, check, accompanying Pain being Badass, check.
      • The second OST has been released. The official name for the song is 'Girei'. Here ya go
    • This is an awesome Naruto opening, even though it just came in a week ago. Not only that, but it's also an epic opening sequence. Also slight Tear Jerker, like Sign, due to some of the imagery on the opening. Okay, most, if you know what's going to happen next.
    • At last, Itachi gets a theme: Many Nights. And they couldn't have picked a more fitting tune.
    • Okay, so This Troper is a huge Kakuzu fangirl as it is, but HOLY FUCK THAT SONG. Brilliance.
      • May I add that this very song was playing when Itachi sicced the second volley of Amaterasu at Sasuke. It is awesome, it is powerful and it makes you annoyed Sasuke was not reduced to ashes then and there.
  • The 7th and 9th intros of the original anime, Namikaze Satellite and Yura Yura, respectively, and the 13th outro Yellow Moon Not to mention more or less the entire original anime's soundtrack, most notably Fake, Need to Be Strong, Avenger, Jiraiya's theme, Those Who Inherit the Will of Fire, Hokage, and especially the oh-so-appropriately entitled Naruto Main Theme.
  • How did the list get this long without a mention of Hurricane Suite? This Troper finds it to be the very definition of this trope, from the deep rumbling to the goosebump-worthy crescendo half way in that fits any sufficiently epic moment in the manga.
    • Add to that the fact that Hurricane Suite is TEN FREAKING MINUTES LONG, whereas all the other Naruto songs range from one to four minutes, and you've got something more than worth listening to.
  • From the 2nd Shippuden OST, Track 3 - "Crushing" - is dripping with overflowing awesomeness. Here.
  • Why I oughta bash your heads with a flaming chair.....how could you forget Flying Light, God of War and Flames from the newest Naruto Shippuden Movie? Personally, If they use God of War in the Naruto vs Pain fight, I am gonna be having goosebumps of the highest caliber all over my body, I'm gonna have to get used to the epic awesomeness before being able to actually watch the fight.
  • The song "Strangeness" from Shippuden, which normally starts playing when sh*t gets real.
  • Seriously, how did you forget Emergence of Talents.
    • Especially when it is associated with the first appearance of the Rasen-Shuriken and Naruto's defeating the Kyuubi and attaining the Rikudo-esque Kyuubi Chakra Mode...
  • This is a really good one.
  • Loneliness and Despair for those sad and yet touching songs.
  • Holy crud, don't forget "Samidare". Beautiful and heartbreaking.
  • This troper has had a love/hate relationship with Naruto soundtracks (I loathe practically all the opening theme songs) but I have two pieces to add to this page.
    • Kouen is just awesome battle music (I always think of it as Deidara's theme) and...
    • A place to return to, which just goes to show how much work went into the anime-exclusive arcs in Shippuden.
  • This Troper isn't even into Naruto that much, but she still loves Wind, the first ending song.
  • While not the biggest fan of Naruto, This Troper absolutely loves the song "Broken Youth" from Shippuden's sixth ending. Listen and he thinks you'll agree.
  • The first three songs of the 2nd Shippuden OST are simply Hot-Blooded to not be considered awesome, namely: Shouryuu, Rinkai, and Gekiha. The fact that Gekiha has already been used in Naruto's battle with Pain in Sage Mode simply highlights its awesome. In addition, Kokuten sounds somewhat sweet as an anti-Sasuke theme, seeing as they played when Itachi was plucking out Sasuke's eye with Tsukuyomi and when Killer Bee blasted him with a Lariat.
  • What about the music that plays in episode 85 while Shikamaru shocks Kakuzu by summoning a pile of water and then saves Ino and Chouji with Kakashi's help? A link to it would be really appreciated.
    • Sadly, it hasn't been released yet. My bet it's going to be released at the end of 2011.
  • Two Shippuuden songs that have only appeared twice each, and neither of them are on either of the currently-released soundtracks, that both deserve to be here. The first is a slow, sad tune played on strings and flute, heard during Naruto's mindscape just before his first 4-Tailed Form transformation, where he's beating himself up over not being stronger, in Episode 41; heard again in Episode 159, when Kakashi dies and laments his failure to protect his teammates, as spectres of his old team disappear in front of him. The second song, which turns Ominous Pipe Organ up to 11, has been heard twice: once in Episode 41, when Naruto started to transform into 4-Tailed Form, his flesh tearing away and forming a cocoon of black chakra around him; and again (this time accompanied by ominous chanting) at the tail end of Ep. 166, when Pain stabs Hinata and gives his little "Love breeds sacrifice, which in turn leads to hatred" speech, and Naruto proceeds to go 6-Tails.
  • Can someone list the 5 songs that played in episode 167 of Shippuden? I know the 4th is Pain's Theme, Girei, but what are the other 4?
    • The last one is Hisou, possibly the most epic soundtrack in the entire series. It plays again the second time Naruto is shown defeating Deva Pain and when Danzo flashes back to Sarutobi being named Hokage and attempts to kill Madara.
    • Correct me if I'm wrong, but the songs are: 1st is "Himonji" (as soon as the fight starts), 2nd is "Kouen" (when Pain says "Let's go!"), 3rd is "Kakuzu" (when Pain says "Here he comes!"), 4th is, like you said, "Girei" (Chibaku Tensei part), and 5th is the one mentioned above, "Hisou" (when Yamato says "Eight?! This is bad.").
  • How have we gotten this far without Nakushita Kotoba ("Lost Words") by No Regret Life, the ending theme of the original anime's last non-filler arc? Beautiful and terribly sad, appropriate considering Naruto and Sakura's reactions to Sasuke's departure.
  • It's a darn shame, Orochimaru's theme hasn't been mentioned. Ominous Pipe Organ playing Toccata and Fugue, check. Electric gutiar in background, check. Stuff I forgot, check. It's debatable whether he's cool, but his theme reeks of Badass. His fight theme is this with creepy Japanese chanting and on steroids. Both songs are included in the link.
  • The newest theme song Diver by NICO Touches the Walls definitely qualifies, it along with the video perfectly demonstrates The Power of Friendship and Heroic Resolve in music form.
  • This troper just knows it's probably gonna have some Your Mileage May Vary, but the first opening, ROCKS, really strikes him for some reason.
  • For that beautiful fusion of metal guitar, flute music and shamisen that screams "I am going to put you six feet into the dirt RIGHT NOW," there's always Keisei Gyakuten.
  • What about Mayonaka no Orchestra?! Come on, that's got to be the most epic ending ever!
  • Nightfall Carries such a sad, mournful feeling to it, that one can't help but feel sad. At least I can't.
  • 'The hero of Konoha' theme played when Naruto returns to Konoha after defeating Pain.
  • Hishou from the 4th Shippuden movie, "The Lost Tower," which played during the incredibly awesome battle with Naruto and his father against Anrokuzan.
  • Hinata's Theme is pretty underrated in this tropers opinion
  • THIS. When you hear this, expect badassness in the form of Gaara.
  • Shutsujin, or Departure to the Front. An awesome song fit for a hero's glorious departure--or return, as it were. One notable occasion this is played is at the end of Shippuden episode 175: Naruto's triumphant return from defeating Pain.
  • The 7th ending of Naruto, Mountain-a-Go Go-Two. The ending is simple but the song is pure awesomeness.
  • I don't think Jiraiya's death theme has been mentioned, Here. This Troper had chills running down his spine when this played out during Jiraiya's death scene. From then on, it became this troper's favourite OST.
  • Naruto Shippuden's Ending 20, By My Side, is basically The Power of Friendship and maternal love made manifest.
  • What's the name of the track playing during Naruto vs. Nine-tails in episode 247 (about 1.33-3.55 here)?
    • That's Heaven-Shaking Event, listed up above. It's one of Shippuden's go-to tracks for awesome, intense battles.
  • Come on guys! How is Lovers not on the list!?
  • Utakata Hanabi, the 14th ending for Shippuden is just too beautiful for words.
  • Long Kiss Goodbye the 7th ending and U Can Do It! the 15th ending for Shippuden are so so catchy.
  • Say hello to the newest ending, Cascade.
  • Maybe it's just me, but Harmonia (the second ending) always gives me the warm fuzzies.
  • The ending "Parade" has a positively beautiful melody.
  • I guess I'm the only one who loved Tragic, the incredibly climactic music that plays in Shippuden 167 when Naruto slips into his Eight-tailed form.
