Bark beats bite: 7 video game boss themes better than the actual boss fights

A game’s music can deepen the sense of immersion in a virtual realm or shatter the illusion, and nowhere is this dichotomy more prevalent than in the boss theme. Boss themes are the climaxes of so many game scores, buzzing with excitement that rewards players for making it this far and keeps them on edge for the challenge in front of them. But sometimes, villains can’t live up to their musical accompaniment. (Dark Souls, Final Fantasy VII, Nintendo DS, PC, PS3, Retro, Street Fighter IV, Xbox 360)

I'd add the last battle theme from Shin Megami Tensei: Nocturne. Awesomely atmospheric, but the boss is a BREEZE compared to all the crap you had to do to get to him, especially if you decided to be an absolute masochist and fight against the Fiends. Even the Fiends you're forced to fight as part of the story(Matador, Trumpeter and Hell Biker) are LEAGUES harder than Kagutsuchi.

Then again, the last bosses in the ShinMegaTen series are NEVER the hardest, while some of the optional bosses are BROKEN. Demi-Fiend in Digital Devil Saga is often considered THE HARDEST BOSS IN JRPG HISTORY.
