Remastered Tracks Rockman Zero (abbreviated as RTRZ) soundtrack albums, composed and arranged by III and published by Inti Creates, are compilations of music from the Mega Man Zero video game series, released by Capcom and Inti Creates. So far, the albums have only been released in Japan, though fans can still import them.
The audio tracks recorded in the Remastered Tracks Rockman Zero albums can be categorized into these types:
- Remixed game tracks: These are remixed versions of in game music, utilizing real-life quality music instruments and occasionally background vocals.
- Drama Tracks: With the exception of RTRZ Idea, each album contains a handful of drama tracks, where a few voice actors will play an audio-only drama. Usually these drama tracks explain about story elements of the series, usually the ones mentioned in the games (with the exception of RTRZ 3; the drama tracks there often explain things fans don't find in the game).
- EX Tracks: Debuting in RTRZ Idea, these tracks are remixes of certain remixed game tracks, involving different compositions or even lyrics.
- Miscellaneous: Tracks which are not of any of the three previously mentioned categories appeared for the first time in RTRZ Physis. These tracks are either tracks which are found nowhere in the games but used in the drama tracks, or even karaoke version (or vocal-less) of some EX tracks in all RTRZ albums.
So far, there have been four RTRZ albums released:
