BTD6 icon for a soundtrack in the Trophy Store

Music is background music that is added to various video games. Music has been added to many games, starting from the Flash version of Bloons TD 4 and the mobile versions of Bloons.

Since Bloons TD Mobile, Ninja Kiwi has added music to their Bloons Tower Defense games. This can be muted as well as the sound effects in the game. Every song in Bloons TD 5 and the song "Party Time" from Bloons TD 6 share a common bass motif established in the theme from Bloons TD 4. The music in BTD5, Bloons Monkey City, Bloons Super Monkey 2, Bloons Supermonkey 2 Mobile, BTD6, Bloons Adventure Time TD, Bloons Pop!, and Bloons TD Battles 2 were composed by Tim Haywood. The themes from the original Bloons TD Battles including mobile versions come from royalty-free music. All mobile games also have their own music too.

Bloons TD Battles 2[]

Entirely new soundtrack made by Tim Haywood. Many of these are mixtures of existing Bloons soundtracks, such as Bloons TD Battles 1, Bloons TD 6, and Bloons Pop!.

In this game, the main theme plays only the main menu and in the loading screen leading to the main menu. When loading into the matchmaking queue, the "waiting" theme plays. Upon meeting a match, a random selection of soundtracks will play. There are two variants of those map soundtracks: "instrumental" and "melodic" (wrong musical terms?). The "instrumental" plays while in the loadout menu and after a battle (as of Version 1.0.4), while the "melodic" plays once the game begins.

The zither (the "BTD6 instrument") returns as a recurring instrument played throughout OSTs in Battles 2.

Non-match soundtracks:

Trivia[]

    • Dark Castle used to play "Sunset Samba" on its initial release in version 5.0, but was changed to "Tribes and Tribulations" on version 6.0.
    • Candy Falls used to play "Sunset Samba" on its initial release in version 17.0, but was changed to "Winter Nights" on version 18.0.
    • Cubism used to play "Tropical Carnival" since its initial release in version 1.0, but was changed to "Sunshine Serenade" on version 17.1.
    • Due to an error, Logs used to play the "Jazz Theme" on version 17.1 instead of the correct "Sunset Samba" theme used on prior versions. It was corrected back to "Sunset Samba" on version 18.0.
    • Underground changed from "Tribes and Tribulations" to "Sunshine Serenade" in around Version 20.0.
    • Lotus Island, Spice Islands, and Off the Coast all have changed to "Sail Again", previously using "Tribes and Tribulations", "Fiesta Flamenco", and "Sunset Samba", respectively.

  • The song "Tribes and Tribulations" is most likely a reference to the English phrase "trials and tribulations".
