    I haven't played too many video games, so don't expect too much variety. (Honestly this was much harder than I thought this would be lol)

    Main theme: Super Smash Bros Brawl's opening theme
    Menu theme: SSBB's menu theme
    Battle theme: vs Cynthia (Pokémon Diamond and Pearl), vs Archie/Maxie (Pokémon ORAS), vs Piers (Pokémon Sword and Shield), vs gym leader (Pokémon Sword and Shield)
    Victory theme: the one from the Kirby games
    Game over theme: Game Over... (The Legendary Starfy)
    Area/level/map theme(s): Area 10 (The Legendary Starfy), Route 210 (Pokémon Diamond and Pearl), Anistar City (Pokémon X and Y), Another Medium (Undertale)
    Boss theme: boss battle (Kirby's Return to Dreamland), Masked Dedede (Kirby Triple Deluxe), Battle Against a True Hero (Undertale)
    Final boss theme: Queen Sectonia phase 2 (Kirby Triple Deluxe), Finale (Undertale)
    End credits theme: idk

    Favorite song in video games: hmm... probably Cynthia's battle theme. Not only is it a great tune that matches the intensity of the battle, but it's been my favorite ever since I first heard it almost 10 years ago. (Nostalgia is very important to me)
