Shadow's Theme contains elements of traditional western music. It incorporates a Jew's harp and a high-pitch whistle. As a leitmotif, it plays whenever Shadow is the focus of a scene, like when you first meet him in South Figaro or again in Kohlingen. It also plays when you encounter him in the Colosseum.
