I guess Abel Nightroad qualifies, but it's more like his clumsy and weak persona is an intentional disguise.

>>121135226
I hope we'll get a remix surpassing the original. Most of remixes are either too party-like, or not powerful enough. Original is just a pure hype turned into music.

Shoujo Shinka! was absolutely amazing, but it's a bit too different from EMIYA to work in UBW. Also all versions form Realta Nua Soundtrack Reproduction are very good, especially the slow one in Unite, but I wouldn't say they are better than original.
>>
>>121135838
Let's hope that it will surpass the original. Now that I think about it, the version from Unlimited Codes was pretty hype, since the music changed when you were ready to cast UBW

Leitmotif is the association of a musical phrase / theme with the character.
What that anon's talking about is probably best described as theme & variation, since they aren't saying that the theme is necessarily associated with any specific character, and since they're specifically talking about variation of the theme.

That Black Butler chapter was amazing. reading through all the fujobait was worth it.
