If there’s one thing Nintendo consistently does right in their video games, it’s the sound tracks. Nintendo games have the best music.
And since the music covers a variety of feelings, themes, locations and enemies, there’s plenty of creepy tunes to go around that are perfectly fitting for Halloween.
Here’s a list of songs from Nintendo games to get you in the Halloween mood:
- Luigi’s Mansion Theme (Super Smash Bros Brawl)
- Lavender Town (Pokemon Blue/Red)
- Majora’s Theme (Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask)
- Forest Temple (Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time)
- Shadow Temple (Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time)
- Fungi Forest Night (Donkey Kong 64)
- Forever Forest Theme (Paper Mario)
- Doopliss Battle (Paper Mario: The Thousand Year Door)
- Ghostly Galaxy (Super Mario Galaxy)
- Haunty Halls Galaxy (Super Mario Galazy 2)
- Shifty Boo Mansion (Super Mario 3D World)
- Witchyworld (Banjo-Tooie)
- Haunted Woods (Diddy Kong Racing)
- Halloween (Animal Crossing: New Leaf)
- Twisted Mansion (Mario Kart 8)
- Haunted Towers (Luigi’s Mansion: Dark Moon)
- Boo Waltz (Super Mario Galaxy)
Also, if you want to fall down a rabbit hole, check out (or re-check out) theories about Lavender Town. It is one of my favorite video game myths because the music really is unsettling. The description in the linked video above for Lavender Town states “This song kind of sounds like death creeping around on tip toes,” which yeah that’s pretty accurate.
