"Joko's Theme" is referenced by a male choir in the "Undead of Elona" track which plays during battles with the Awakened and the Mordant Crescent in the Crystal Desert and Elona. It is also referenced subtly in a fragmented form in the "Dirge of the Father King" track playing in areas of Joko's empire during Joko's mysterious absence.
"Joko's Theme" appears in the "Joko" track which plays as ambient music in the Domain of Istan and Sandswept Isles to signify the reach of Joko's forces in the respective regions as well as when Joko Awakens the defeated Amala and orders her to slay her former Sunspear companions at the end of the Twilight Oasis Fractal. The theme is also used in the "Attack On The Sunspears" track which plays during the Sunspears' daring raids on Palawadan, Jewel of Istan and the Mordant Crescent Great Hall as well as in the Twilight Oasis Fractal which depicts Joko and the Mordant Crescent conquering one of the last remaining pockets of Sunspear resistance in Elona.
