Well it's here. This one is going to be large. Let's get this over with.

Shin Megami Tensei - Arcade Street.

Awesome song. Also remixed for Nocturne as Ginza

Shin Megami Tensei II - Disco

Disco, disco. Shoji Meguro does disco.

Shin Megami Tensei III: Nocturne - Dante Battle.

It is a Dante style song. By Shoji Meguro. I think that's all I need to say about it.

Shin Megami Tensei Strange Journey - The Tyrannical Hero

It's a battle between your best friend-turned-half-demon and you. In the middle of an allegoric hell. For the fate of the World. And the song is so calm and somber. Also its an arrange of Theme of Chaos.

Megami Ibunroku: Persona - School Days

Screw the haters! The new soundtrack is awesome. Also this song is cheery and happy. A great contrast to the tone of the game.

Persona 2 - Knights of the Holy Spear. Arrange.

Cheating here, since I have not played Eternal Punishment. But yeah, the favorite, an arrange of the battle theme against Hittler!!!

Persona 3 - The Battle for Everyone's Souls

Rock and Opera... TOGETHER. A remix of the Persona Series leitmotif Aria of the Soul/Poem for Everyone's Soul. There's a lot of remixes but the original is the best. The live version is a close second tho.

Persona 3 FES - Brand New Days.

The main theme for "The Answer." It's my second favorite song from FES. The first one however, is a bit of a special case.

Persona 3 Portable - Wiping All Out

"I'm not a princess
(a lot of anger in it)
not your cutie girlfriend oh no don't you know?

Persona 4 - Long Way

I'll admit there are better songs on the Soundtrack (The Genesis, I'll Face Myself, etc) but this song is better for me because of its duality. A somber beggining and then an uprising part, ending in a hopeful bit before looping back. Love it for that.

Persona 4 The Ultimate in Mayonaka Arena - Heartful Cry.

THE BEST FES/PERSONA SONG. Heartful Cry is probably what I consider to be a masterpiece by how its used and how its sounds. And then Meguro goes and does this. Awesome ;_;

Persona 4 The Animation - Beauty of Destiny. Special Mix.

The ending for the first season of P4:A. The first time I heard it, I knew i would love it forever. This mix was discovered at the moment of making this post. It has violin and piano therefore awesome. Also remixed as Labrys' theme for P4: The Ultimate

Devil Summoner: Raidou Kuzunoha vs The Souless Army - Battle ~Raidou~. 2008 Arrange.

Dat guitar. Dat percussions. Dat everything.

Devil Summoner: Raidou Kuzunoha vs King Abaddon - Formidable Foe.

Again, dat guitar. Also has a bit of a Goldeneye feel.

Digital Devil Saga/Avatar Tuner - Sahasrara

The hub theme for the game. Is a calm song with an electric guitar. Pretty good.

Digital Devil Saga 2/Avatar Tuner 2 - Hunting ~ Betrayal

A special boss battle theme. Also a remix for the normal battle theme of the first one. Fitting for who you fight.

Megami Ibunroku: Devil Survivor - Pinch Battle

Guitar!!! Also the theme for when you are rescuing someone while being awesome.

Devil Survivor 2 - Will of the Species. Arrange

A remix of the great song Will of the Species. Which is a remix of the great song Septentrion. So this make it Great x3. A song about not giving up and facing the unfaceable.

Catherine - Revolutionary Etude

Take Chopin's Revolutionary Etude. Give it to Shoji Meguro. Present it as final boss music. Die, die, die a lot. Don't mind 'cause music is epic.

Anyway that's all. I know I am missing NINE, IMAGINE, Majin Tensei, Majin Tensei II, Devil Summoner, SMT: If (AKA where Fate/EXTRA took inspiration from), and a bit more, but I have not played them so...
