|Red Like Roses|
The music starts off with an acoustic guitar playing a distinctive, sad-sounding melody over arpeggiated guitar chords. The verse follows, which is also sad-sounding and played at the same slow tempo.
After the verse, the music's tempo picks up considerably, in synch with the battle's excitement. An extended Spanish-tinged acoustic guitar solo plays over strings and heavy percussion, lending a rather romantic and exciting feel to the piece.
The music then rests momentarily, before continuing with a faster tempo, in a reprise of the opening melody in a fast-paced string arrangement.
Song & Lyrics
Red like roses fills my dreams and brings me to the place you rest.
White is cold and always yearning, burdened by a royal test.
Black the beast descends from shadows.
Yellow beauty burns gold.
- This is the theme that plays during the "Red" Trailer.
- The lyrics indirectly describe the 4 main characters as Red, White, Black and Yellow.
- In the eighth episode, a slightly altered version of the red verse plays as Ruby decapitates a giant Nevermore. This verse is a part of a new song in the episode's soundtrack.
