A leitmotif is a musical "phrase" or melody, re-used in multiple songs to associate a tune with a person, event, or place. Leitmotifs occur several times in the soundtrack of Underverse.

Original Leitmotifs

Cross' Theme

As the name suggests, this is the leitmotif that accompanies Cross. It was originally a short loop created by Jakei, but ended up getting remixed by NyxTheShield multiple times and never actually used. It can be heard in some specific tracks in Underverse, however.

Overwrite

This leitmotif typically has to do with XChara. It originally started as an original track by NyxTheShield, but ended up being reused for Underverse.

Flowers

This leitmotif accompanies memories, typically relating to XTale.

Truce

This leitmotif has to do with Ink and Error's truce.

Relight

This leitmotif relates to XGaster, specifically his foresight. The original track will appear in Season 2, however the leitmotif has already appeared in Underverse.

"Death"

The main thing that connects these tracks together is the occurrence or mention of death. Oddly, each of these tracks also contain the Overwrite leitmotif.
