• Before making a single edit, Tropedia EXPECTS our site policy and manual of style to be followed. Failure to do so may result in deletion of contributions and blocks of users who refuse to learn to do so. Our policies can be reviewed here.
  • All images MUST now have proper attribution, those who neglect to assign at least the "fair use" licensing to an image may have it deleted. All new pages should use the preloadable templates feature on the edit page to add the appropriate basic page markup. Pages that don't do this will be subject to deletion, with or without explanation.
  • All new trope pages will be made with the "Trope Workshop" found on the "Troper Tools" menu and worked on until they have at least three examples. The Trope workshop specific templates can then be removed and it will be regarded as a regular trope page after being moved to the Main namespace. THIS SHOULD BE WORKING NOW, REPORT ANY ISSUES TO Janna2000, SelfCloak or RRabbit42. DON'T MAKE PAGES MANUALLY UNLESS A TEMPLATE IS BROKEN, AND REPORT IT THAT IS THE CASE. PAGES WILL BE DELETED OTHERWISE IF THEY ARE MISSING BASIC MARKUP.

Motoi Sakuraba is a video game composer best known for his work in Star Ocean, Baten Kaitos, the Tales (series), and Golden Sun, as well as other tri-Ace works like Valkyrie Profile. He has even made a cameo appearance in Tales of Phantasia. On top of that, he was also one of the many composers that did work on Super Smash Bros. Brawl's humongous soundtrack. His work often involves heavy electronica or electric guitar, and tends to start with strong melodies and then dissolve into more scattered notes. His work in Dark Souls, however is a departure from his usual blend of electronica and orchestra, instead just focusing on the latter.

His latest credited work is Kid Icarus: Uprising.

He began his music career working the keyboards for a Progressive Rock band, before joining Wolf Team to compose for their Shoot'Em Up games.
