Yeah, there's always subjectiveness to stuff like this, but no one can really name a boss song that sticks out from a completely boring or average fight.

Actually...

Izuna Legend of the Unemployed Ninja - Battle A

Not a 10/10 by far but it's one of my most recent faves as far as boss music goes. The game's a basic roguelike and the bosses are more annoying than anything else.

I'm not trying to disprove your point, I just took your sentence as a challenge.  :whoops:

I think that sentence applies to my entire top 5.  Or do you think I have especially fond memories of battling the Mighty Flying Popecunt?

Annnnnnd Sinistral barely edges out Prisoners, 10-9. A very close fight befitting two great themes.

Our next match:

Dark Souls OST - Ornstein & Smough

vs

Shadow of the Colossus OST, T16: In Awe of the Power ~Battle with the Colossus~

These glowing weak points? I'm telling you, brother, they're a liability.

Tough one.

If this had been the OTHER SotC track in the list, I might have voted the other way...

Preeeety much this.  SotC's soundtrack is pretty amazing overall, but this piece, will good, isn't one of my favorites.  So I give the nod to the SUPER SMASH A BROS.

this is honestly the most conflicted i have been so far

i think oracle has to get it in the end, but seeing a dubstep remix linked in the related videos is kinda disheartening

Gamelan is probably my absolute favorite kind of music, but Secret of Mana doesn't exactly do the best rendition of it. And that God Hand track is pretty great.

I'm gonna go with Secret of Mana because it's got a crazy stomping beat.

The dissonance in Oracle really makes it stand out in this list. It's got my vote this round, but when faced with the other Mana track... well.

I'd never heard this God Hand track until now, but it's fantastic.

Oracle wins it for me, though.

I gotta vote for Devil May Sly. God Hand's tracks just go so well with the actual fight, they have this energy and rhythm that enhances the experience.

Oracle is brutal and dark for an otherwise pretty cheery game and it sort of hits you out of nowhere, so this is a hard decision.

I've never been a fan of dissonant music myself, so I voted for Devil May Sly.

I have to actually admit that Oracle does dissonance astoundingly well.  As a piece of art form it is a supreme example.

As something to listen to for pleasure, though?  No way.  Devil May Sly it is.

(Sacrifice Part 3 is sitting at #6 on my personal list.  Now I really feel like I ought to have bumped it up.)

Welp, we have our first tie, and thus I'll weigh in.

Oracle is one of my all time favorite tracks (if it comes down to a tie vote between Sinistral and Oracle, I may kill myself) so I've gotta give it the pass.

Next up we have:

Mario RPG: Smithy 1

vs

Shadow of the Colossus - The Opened Way

Now I'm a huge fan of Smithy1, (though I wasn't the one to include it on the stronglist) but I think this is the first time my personal vote would go to the write ins. The Opened Way is top-fucking-notch.
