Best Boss Fight Theme Contest FINAL RESULTS


Having listened to First Hunter and Astaroth I gave it to First Hunter.

I haven’t played through enough of BB to hit that boss and I can’t remember the Astaroth boss fight music at all.


Persona 4 is the only one of those games I have played but that Nier one is just better, sorry
(also wow I kind of hate DDD? Sorry. I was all prepared to vote for it but. Well here we are, instead.)

  1. Weight of the World hands down, I never was a fan of P4 music (love the P4Dance remixes though)

  2. I love Ys music but FTL always managed to convey a dreamy take on science fiction

  3. Astaroth. I will never understand the appeal of Souls music outside their context, they sound like movie tracks

  4. Kirby Robobot has a killer soundtrack but Nocturne is out of this world :hugs:


That P4 theme got a couple of really good remixes in Golden, but I would still take the Weight of the World medley having played both.

Before: three of these are very easy and I don’t know anything about the fourth.

After: three of these are very easy and the fourth apparently came out of a time machine from late 90s nu-metal, but one of them has double bass, so…

Waterblight Ganon is kinda meh to me, The Final Song I love even if it’s accompanied by a plain mean spirited boss fight.


Easy vote this time. These are some mismatched choices outside the last one.


sorry mgr youre great and all but i gotta give the vote to the fever dream of navigating those three assholes at night on a standard definition tv


Well, the entire bracket was randomized (except for the last match when I had to take out two duplicates and add two songs in real fast).


No big, it’s all gonna end with one winner anyways.


Sorry about the delay, been exhausted.

sotc is defs an ost that deserves more than one nominee but i dont recall seeing more than just that one in the full list :pensive:


Wow, I was not expecting to pick Shovel Knight over Shadow of the Colossus, but that was one hell of a track.


I’m going to vote for Kid Icarus over Ace Combat due to the rad guitars and hope that noone will consider me a plebe for that fact. Ace Combat is still friggin’ amazing.


Kid Icarus Uprising is a really amazing game that not nearly enough people played.

Hybrid Heaven is a really weird game that not nearly enough people played.


The Defender is so damn good.


Day 7 Results

The Unsung War (Ace Combat 5) over Boss Fight 1 (Kid Icarus: Uprising). 13-8
Scars of the Divine Wing (Ys Origin) over Dragonslayer Armor (Dark Souls 3), 11-10
The Defender (Shovel Night) over Revived Power (Shadow of the Colossus), 11-8
Final Rival Battle (Pokemon Red/Blue/Yellow) over Fight Hard! (Hybrid Heaven), 13-6

Everyone who voted for Ace Combat and Pokemon has terrible taste.

Bummed about Kid Icarus and Pokemon. I liked 'em. Day 7’s matches are looking a lil one-sided if you ask me.
