Real Life Should Have JRPG Victory Music

By Kirk Hamilton on at

JRPG victory music is one of the best types of video game music. Every time you emerge from battle victorious, a familiar, stirring theme plays. I want that music to play in my everyday life.

Why can’t my every accomplishment be accompanied by victorious fanfare? I don’t know. I think I’m going to start carrying around a little set of speakers with me so that gaming’s best victory anthems will underscore my everyday accomplishments.

Here is a list of the themes I’d want to play, and when.

Final Fantasy VII

I want this music to play every time I reach inbox zero.


Trails in the Sky

I want this music to play every time I switch from jogging bottoms to real trousers.


Persona 3

I want this music to play every time I walk into the building where I used to have a job I didn’t like.


Final Fantasy Tactics

I want this music to play every time I close the printer door after installing a new ink cartridge.


Suikoden III

I want this music to play every time I ride my bike down the hill in front of my apartment.


Lunar 2

I want this music to play every time I peruse the wine section at the grocery store.


Saga Frontier

I want this music to play every time I successfully snag a cab from the other six people standing in front of the bar.


Chrono Trigger

I want this music to play every time I get a notification that the girl I like has commented on one of my Facebook posts.


Chrono Cross

I want this music to play every time I look out my window in the morning and see that it is actually not raining today.


Persona 5

I want this music to play every time I successfully clean a mustard stain off of my shirt before anyone notices.


The Throne Room

It’s not from a JRPG, but still. I want this music to play every time I walk into a room carrying a just-delivered pizza.
