"MOTHER 3 Love Theme" (sometimes shorted as "Love Theme") is a frequently ripped track from MOTHER 3.


"MOTHER 3 Love Theme"[1] is one of the sad music tracks from MOTHER 3 and is also the main theme of said game. The song is only used in emotional and often sad moments from the game, like Hinawa's death from Chapter 1; the song is also associated with Hinawa and Lucas. The song was added very late in the development timeline of the game according to Shigesato Itoi, the creator of the MOTHER/Earthbound games; he was content with the "His Highness' Theme" being the main theme for the game. This was later changed due to Itoi wanting to have the song be more emotional and less repetitive in its use in the game.[2]

The song also has three alternative tracks, those being "Love Theme (Reprise)", "Mom's Hometown", and "Name These Children", These tracks use the same motifs from "MOTHER 3 Love Theme", with the exception of being used during specific points during the game. Another song, "It's Over" (also known as "It is Finished"),[3] is a slightly depressing rendition of the "MOTHER 3 Love Theme" that plays after the flashback scene in the final battle with the Masked Man. The song received an vocal version sung by Taeko Onuki, which was released on the MOTHER 3+ album as "We Miss You ~ Love Theme" and as an alternative song named "Theme of Love". Later, the song received a remixed version for Super Smash Bros. Brawl.
