On my first few playthroughs I though the Zeal Palace song was his theme, because that's what played in Frog's flashback when Cyrus died. Still an amazing song in its own right.
Don't Crono and Marle share a themesong? At least, the title has both their names in it. I don't remember what song plays if you talk to Crono at the End of Time.

it plays the song you hear in the animated cutscene intro of the PS1 and DS versions.

The main theme, in other words. Which is also Crono's then.

Marle's a support character, so she ends up latching her themesong to Crono, and later to everyone with "To Good Friends".

Not as bad as Lucca though, who ends up having to use the fanfare for her theme :<

I dunno, I always saw it as the opposite; Lucca's theme is so cool that they used it as another fanfare.

You know, it struck me as odd just right now.

Magus doesn't have a theme.  The OSV only has the theme for when you battle him.

"THAT IS HIS THEME!!!!11" A random newcomer may scream.  

If that's the case, then why don't the characters have battle themes for themselves and not just for bosses?

Just throwing it out there.  

I'm pretty sure that is his theme, actually... It plays at the End of Time when you put him in your party.

I think GenesisOne's referring to the fact that it's called "Battle With Magus" and you hear it first when fighting him so it seems less like a character theme and more like a boss theme. I don't see why it can't be both though nor that it would mean it isn't his theme just because it's the theme that plays when you fight him. It was just that the theme for Magus was too awesome not to use in multiple instances. ;)

Wait, what plays during those Mirror Match fights against the alternate Crono, Marle & Lucca in the Dimensional Vortexes in CTDS...?

I think the music choices for the added material were really bad so they shouldn't count towards theme consideration.

Dalton's theme is not Johnny's theme, I'm sorry honeys.

Agreed for the most part, except they did work Singing Mountain in there somewhere. I forgot where. But it was pretty decent.

Singing Mountain was used for Marle's Dimensional Vortex, I believe. The one with the ice cliffs.

I dunno I liked her fanfare.

I always thought that the fanfare was just too damn happy, but I love love love the CC rendition post-battle.  It also irked me some that Frog had that fanfare in the Sanctuary, but I think that makes his theme even better when it finally bellows out for the first time.
