Mario and Luigi music has a more urgent feel to it. If there's one element a boss battle musical score should have, it's urgency.

I'd take that if you weren't comparing it to fucking Jenova.  The entire piece is overlaid with something that sounds like an alarm clock and underlaid with a snare drum on a 180 tempo that never shuts up.  It couldn't be more urgent if the whole thing was just R Lee Ermey screaming in your ear to fight this fucking weird looking piece of shit alien thing.

Well, it's tied 9-9. I asked around in #ff, and most people there who haven't already voted (not all) seemed to prefer Jenova, but really I'm not going to set a precedent and reopen a poll after it closed.

So, I'm gonna close my eyes and listen to both and then go with what I liked better.

Yep. Jenova.

Philistine really doesn't do anything for me. The pounding beat is neat and all, but for this specific matchup, you have to go with the classics.

I based an entire mid-game D&D battle around Battle on the Big Bridge and my players absolutely adored the whole thing.

I have not based anything in any game around NMH.

Gilgamesh leads 9-3. Next.

Earthbound: Heavily Armed Pokey

vs

Final Fantasy Mystic Quest - Battle 2

The previously discussed MQ track comes up against the battle against Pokey. For those of you who haven't heard the pokey track before, be sure to listen to the whole thing before voting.

Battle 2 is rad as fuck, but I am a sucker for tone shifts. Pokey all the way.

Can we stop going to the next round when there is still a chance for a comeback? I mean, Jenova/bowser was deadlock 9v9.

Pokey wins, 10-9. Lol, the MQ track everyone thought was better lost. So now, if the OTHER MQ track matches up against Pokey and wins, it'll come full circle.

Next up we have THE BATTLE OF THE SNES SQUARESOFT JRPG FINAL BOSSES WITH "DANCE" IN THE TITLE

Final Fantasy Final Boss Music - Final Fantasy VI Kefka

vs

Secret of Mana OST - Meridian Dance ~ Mana Beast Battle Theme

Since the full version of Dancing Mad includes the long trek up the three mutated Statues (or at least, that's what I always thought they were) and is like 18 minutes long, and the person who elected it probably just meant the part with Kefka anyway, yeah, that's what we'll be judging.

Personally, I don't really consider either of these tracks 10/10. Both are solid 8s imo. Oracle is my prefered SoM boss track, and Zeromus wasn't even fucking nominated in the write ins.

However, a lot of people seem to really love Meridian Dance and think Oracle is garbage or ho-hum. I guess it's like the Elvis/Beatles thing, you know, you can like both, but ultimately you're either a Meridian Dance man or an Oracle man.

Er. Sort of got sidetracked there.

what is this thread about again

ok ok I just listened to them both and Dancing Mad gets the nod from me because it incorporates both notes from Kefka's theme and his laugh

Mana all the way, hoss. Even Dancing Mad's sinister overtones for one of the most twisted villians in FF history can't top the adrenaline rush and feeling of urgency that comes with Meridian Dance.
