Well I don't really have a favourite since most of them are delightfully catchy, but I do have a preference in the most boss-like theme and that is Utsuho's since right from the start it lets the player know that they've gotten themselves in some serious shi-

Subjectively? Reimu. Maiden's Capriccio.

As befits her character, despite Reimu being a fairly easy boss, the first ten seconds alone of her theme firmly hammer home the simple message that now, you are absolutely fucked.

I liked the melody but did not think ZUN used the right instruments/pacing to make it sound boss-ish, the group of arranges I've heard make it clear that it'd be much sweeter if it was a bit more fast paced and maybe replace some instruments with trumpets and add backtracks/echo to the delicious piano.

ZUN has the best theme.
Kid's Festival ~ Innocent Treasure is probably the best "theme" he has created, atleast in my opinion. If that does not count, then it's Yuyuko's final spell theme.

Also this. Though I'm not sure if that's really their "theme". ZUN has dedicated quite a lot of songs to just the 3 fairies and their adventures.

I can't choose between Emotional Skyscraper and Remiria's...

The original versions go well with what the characters represent, like Remiria's refinement and Motheru's grandeur.

And are the arranges of those that I like the most, the piano ones being able to induce sadness upon myself easily, especially Septette. So many sad stories about Milady were imagined...

But I also like the arranges where they are fast-paced and inspire feelings of wanting to Falcon Punch something with all my strength while screaming at the top of my lungs.

Sometimes I even get shivers when I find an exceptionally good song. I think I may have a mental condition or something.
