The Fire Emblem theme is the recurring main theme that appears across the Fire Emblem series. It was originally composed for Fire Emblem: Shadow Dragon and the Blade of Light, and has been used as the theme for the title screen in several entries since. While it uses the same arrangement since the original, certain titles contain different arrangements after the intro, or a new arrangement entirely. In many games, several other tracks also incorporate fragments of the theme.
- Fire Emblem: Shadow Dragon and the Blade of Light/Shadow Dragon: Played on the title screen and class role, the original version of the theme is also used at the final cutscene after clearing the Endgame, with a slow version of it played over during the credits roll.
In the DS remake, an orchestral version from Mystery of the Emblem is used in the title screen and class roll instead.
- Fire Emblem Gaiden/Fire Emblem Echoes: Shadows of Valentia: This was played on the class role in Gaiden and its remake. This can also be heard at the start of the ending, The Course of Gods and Men.
- Fire Emblem: Mystery of the Emblem/Fire Emblem: New Mystery of the Emblem: The remake reuses the version in Shadow Dragon for DS.
- Fire Emblem: Genealogy of the Holy War: This version plays on the title screen and demo mode/credits. Its melody differs slightly in parts from the theme's prior versions.
- Fire Emblem: Thracia 776: This version plays on the title screen and demo mode/credits. It uses an arrangement largely similar to the original melody.
- Fire Emblem: The Binding Blade: This version plays on the title screen and demo mode/class roll. A triumphant version of the of it is also heard during the first cutscene of the game's true ending.
- Fire Emblem: The Blazing Blade: This version plays on the title screen and class roll, with an arrangement from The Binding Blade playing in the closing cutscenes of each campaign.
- Fire Emblem: The Sacred Stones: This version plays on the title screen and class roll, using the ending melody of Mystery of the Emblem. With a reprised version also playing in the final cutscene of the epilogue. A remixed variant of the theme, named Ray of Hope, is used during the Creature Campaign as the overworld's map music.
- Fire Emblem: Path of Radiance: This version, unlike previous entries, plays only over the turn count and kill count displays after the credits and is not present on the title screen. This version uses a frenetic, brass-heavy arrangement, though the composition remains largely the same.
- Fire Emblem: Radiant Dawn: This version plays on the title screen and class roll, possessing a dramatic, orchestral arrangement.
- Fire Emblem Awakening: Two variations of it are played, with a shorter version used at the title screen, and a slightly extended form as the music of the opening movie. A piece of it is used towards the end of both Conquest and Conquest (Ablaze). Id (Purpose) uses it at the end of the song in a lyrical fashion.
The DLC's Harvest Scramble, Summer Scramble and Hot-Spring Scramble each use a version of the theme as their battle music. Harvest Scramble has its own version, while Summer Scramble and Hot Springs Scramble share slightly different takes of the same version.
- Fire Emblem Fates: While largely absent, a version of the theme is present at the ending cutscene of Revelation and you can recognize it in the opening. It also can be heard during the campaign results theme, Final Elites.
Fire Emblem Heroes Edit
Your spirit shall shine
Across the generations
Now, and for all time
Heroes bringing us hope's light
Journey from distant worlds
To steel the coming night
With sacred relics, guard your side
The old champions from far and high
In this land where timeless heroes live
And their legends never die
Heroes of the ages
With my desire and your heart too, where art thou?
The end is within our reach
Take up my fight, cause I beseech
Together ready with my favorite four
Bring us peace, forever more
The strong, the weak, the brave, the meek
All shall fight for the light we seek
Hear my voice, great hero, heed my plea
Come to me, come set us free, ooh!
