Hiroyuki Sawano (born 12 September 1980) is a Japanese composer and musician best known for his work on anime, TV series, and movies. His well-known works on soundtracks include the animes Attack On Titan, Kill La Kill, Blue Exorcist and the video game Xenoblade Chronicles X.


As ripped tracks

Several tracks from Xenoblade Chronicles X (including "The key we've lost") were ripped in January 2016, being among the first rips ever posted on the original GiIvaSunner channel. Since then, Hiroyuki Sawano's tracks from Xenoblade Chronicles X often became the targets of high quality rips.

As jokes

On February 22, 2016, GiIvaSunner uploaded Tomorrow is Mine - Bayonetta 2[1][2], a mashup of the advertised track with "Uncontrollable" from Xenoblade Chronicles X and "This Summer's Gonna Hurt Like a Motherfucker" by Maroon 5.

Pokémon Black & White (Beta Mix) rips

Several arrangements of tracks from Xenoblade Chronicles X in the Pokémon Black & White soundfont by Sir Spacebar/dante were subsequently uploaded by GiIvaSunner: "Battle! (Wild Pokémon) (Beta Mix) - Pokémon Black & White " ("Black tar"; February 26, 2016)[3][4], "Battle! (Gym Leader) (Beta Mix) - Pokémon Black & White" ("Uncontrollable"; February 27, 2016)[5][6], "Battle! (Legendary Pokémon) (Beta Mix) - Pokémon Black & White" ("The key we've lost"; March 1, 2016)[7][8], and "Skyarrow Bridge (Beta Mix) - Pokémon Black & White" ("Don't Worry"; March 6, 2016)[9].

Then, on March 29, 2016, SiIvaGunner uploaded another arrangement from dante, but this time of the song "Before my body is Dry" from Kill la Kill, as the rip "Victory Lies Before You! (Beta Mix) - Pokémon Black & White"[10]. This started a series of Pokémon Black & White "(Beta Mix)" rips, that were all Hiroyuki Sawano arrangements.

These "(Beta Mix)" rips were reuploaded on SiIvaGunner on April and May 2016, and new arrangements were uploaded as they were made. On September 28, 2016, these rips were compiled in the album SILVA GUNNER BEST OF SOUNDTRACK【B/W】.

"The key we've lost"

The song "The key we've lost" from Xenoblade Chronicles X is a frequently ripped track and a minor meme on the channel. As a ripped track, its first appearance was The key we've lost - Xenoblade Chronicles X which was uploaded on the original GiIvaSunner channel on January 20, 2016. It has been ripped 6 times since then. As a joke, it appeared in rips such as "Tem Shop (Beta Mix) - Undertale", "Slider (Lost Mix) - Super Mario 64" and "Piano Lesson 3 - Final Fantasy V" and in medley rips.
