A Theme is the music you hear when playing a level. They are an essential part of Patapon, as they help create the rhythm that the Patapons fight with. Themes can be exclusive to certain levels, or repeated throughout many.

  • Versus mode mission music themes are the only themes that have an alternative version for PonPata, PonChaka, DonDon & DonChaka command songs.
  • The Patapon 3 Credits includes a theme that is unused. It is a variant of Ho Hoi Yahha Theme. It is mentioned in the code as Ho Hoi Yahha Rock. It can be heard with hacking.
  • There is also an unused VS theme hidden in Patapon 3's game coding. It can be heard with hacking.
  • In Patapon 3, a 120-bpm metronome beat is also heard along with the theme.
  • In Patapon 3, themes from the previous games were slightly altered, mainly increasing the quality and consistency of the melodies.
  • Some themes are heard naturally around certain bosses.
  • Some of the themes have been renamed in Patapon 3, like Acchichichi's theme being changed to Hot Hot Hot theme.
  • Every themes' rock version's pre-fever resembles an actual music genre.
    • If you prolong the combo (intentionally not getting a perfect four) you'll hear the original theme's leitmotif or melody.
