The various Japanese Transformers television shows each feature one or more opening and closing theme song.

Theme songsEdit

Each Transformers series in Japan has featured its own opening and closing theme song. Many different performers contributed over the years, giving a wide variety of different styles, from rap to pop, from serious to silly. Typically, the same artist would perform the opening and closing songs for a given series, though there are exceptions. Occasionally, an artist would provide music for multiple series.

Song collectionsEdit

Though each Transformers series featured distinctive music, the songs were not widely available in the '80s. Some of them were collected together with non-Transformers anime and sold as part of massive compilations. With the debut of Beast Wars, that started to change. CD singles of most Beast Wars-era songs were readily available, and eventually albums compiling many songs began to be released. By 2003, the Generation One series would see similar treatment.
