If you had to choose one song from all of the Xeno series (gears/saga/blade) that was your favorite which song would it be? Feel free to also explain why that song is your favorite too if you'd like!

So it's probably the least exciting track in the entire Xeno-metaverse but I'd have to say Fifth Jerusalem from XSIII because I can listen to it on loop literally forever. I also love In A Limestone Cave and the theme from Abel's Ark in XSIII, Sakura's theme from XSII, and the beach of nothingness/Proto Merkabah leitmotif in XSI.

My favorite lesser known track is Assault 2 from Episode 3.

KOS-MOS is my favorite fictional character ever so of course I love all the renditions of Hepatic, especially Hepatica 3. I also love her original Episode 1 theme as well:

It's so haunting, I love her other epic themes as well like Battling KOS-MOS or She's Coming Back, but I always thought Hepatica and the earlier linked song really capture her character and the burden she bears

But as for the songs, I think that my favorite is the ending theme of Xenosaga - A Missing Year
That might actually be my favorite ending theme in all of Saga. <3 Missing Year soundtrack is a goldmine of underrated bangers imo. I kind of went on a spiel about it over in this thread. :B

Kinda tend to go through phases but most of mine are honestly from Xenosaga and Xenoblade X surprisingly enough. That's not to say anything bad about anything in gears or the other blade games at all. They all have a few standouts for me but I think I just tend to have a few more from the others I listen to more. Xenogears my fav is probably 'The one who Bares Fangs at God'. Xenoblade 1 definitely the main theme. Xenoblade 2 is 'Kingdom of Uraya'. XBX.... well I know this one will sound weird but I'm kinda between Primordia Day theme and Melancholia which I am aware of how different they are. Saga is the hardest choice but also where my favorite would be. Probably Fatal Fight from II or Telos from III. I'm gonna have to say Fatal Fight. I tend to gravitate towards songs that are either heavily atmospheric (and mysterious usually) or things that are high octane 'gonna sword punch you anime style' bangers. Chanting just adds to the experience, plus Fatal Fight has a great beat in it which is what edges it slightly over Fate in III for me. So yeah, I guess that's mine and the best explanation I can come up with as to why. Very tough question. Not sure there's a song I dislike in the whole series, which I know isn't a popular opinion lol.
