Sorry I'm a day late. Between being out all day yesterday and the massive snowstorm that just hit, I've been kinda busy. If anyone wants to request any changes to the bracket, just let me know before the next round. As for Double Eliminations, I've decided not to do it for this tournament, as we already have 64 songs and I feel like it would take too long. I am doing it over on the Special Tournament thread however, so we'll see how things turn out. With tiebreakers, if we can't get a vote to break the tie, I'll just use a random dice roll to decide the winner.

With all that out of the way, let the tournament commence!
Here is a link to the current bracket
Here is a link to the Best Mario Kart Theme Tournament

1) Super Mario Galaxy 2 - Bowser's Galaxy Generator vs. The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess - Hyrule Castle Tower

2) Pokemon FireRed / LeafGreen - Team Rocket's Hideout vs. Sonic & Knuckles - Death Egg Act 1

3) Sonic and the Secret Rings - Night Palace(Unawakening Float) vs. Donkey Kong 64 - Hideout Helm 2

4) Super Mario Sunshine - Corona Mountain vs. Paper Mario - Siege on Bowser's Castle

None of these songs stood out as particularly good, but only the last one was close.

I make Pixel Art on occasion.

Been thinking lately, that Shulk would actually make a really good Smash Bros. character. (Still would rather have King K. Rool though)

1. Super Mario Galaxy 2 - Bowser's Galaxy Generator
2. Sonic & Knuckles - Death Egg (Act 1)
3. Sonic and the Secret Rings - Night Palace (Unawakening Float) - I'm really surprised nobody else has voted for this song yet. I though the DK one was rather dull, but this one was quite foreboding.
4. Super Mario Sunshine - Corona Mountain

1.) Super Mario Galaxy 2 - Bowser's Galaxy Generator (I can already tell you that this OST is going to get annoyingly far. Most because every single track in the Super Mario Galaxy series is pure musical gold.)
2.) Pokemon FireRed / LeafGreen - Team Rocket's Hideout
3.) Donkey Kong 64 - Hideout Helm 2 (So much Bass Clef! :o )
4.) Paper Mario - Siege on Bowser's Castle

1) Super Mario Galaxy 2 - Bowser's Galaxy Generator (Wasn't even a contest for me.)
2) Pokemon FireRed/ LeafGreen - Team Rocket Hideout (Both tracks weren't great but at least this track didn't grate on my ears.)
3) Sonic and the Secret Rings - Night Palace (Wasn't fond of these two either, but at least this sounded more interesting than the other, even if the latter is a better fit for a Fortress theme.)
4) Super Mario Sunshine - Corona Mountain (Didn't think much of the other theme's industrial theme.)

1. The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess- Hyrule Tower (guess I'm the odd here that thought this was better shrug)
2. Sonic and Knuckles- Death Egg Act 1 (one of my top tracks from one of my favorite VG soundtracks so yeah, be hard to compete with this for me)
3. Sonic and The Secret Rings- Night Palace (would have been better without vocals but still a stand out theme)
4. Paper Mario - Seige on Bowser's Castle (thought both of these were pretty blah tbh)

Current playlist: Senran Kagura Burst, Super Mario Bros. 3, Sonic the Hedgehog 1, Nightsky

1. The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess - Hyrule Tower I felt this was more fitting a final level. Even if SMG had an objectively better song, it didn't sound like an antagonist base.
2. Poke'mon Fire Red/Leaf Green - Team Rocket Hideout This one embodies my problem with a lot of these brackets. I feel like both songs suit their respective games and levels well, but out of context, the adventure/RPG/dealing-with-real-evil ones will almost always seem more antagonist-y to me.
3. Donkey Kong 64 - Hideout Helm 2 I see a lot of people saying this song is uninteresting. THAT'S EXACTLY WHY I SUGGESTED REPLACING IN HIDEOUT HELM 1! Even so, this just sound more like an antagonistic base to me than the Sonic one. That said, the Sonic one DOES have really good instrumentation, and I do love that.
4. Super Mario Sunshine - Corona Mountain For once, not even a contest. The heat of the level seeps into me as I listen to this song. This is one case where I feel the atmosphere will win out over the actual feel of the song.

I COME UPON THEE WITH RIGHTEOUS FURY FROM THAT OF THE SMASH FANDOM! ILLOGICAL STATEMENTS SHALT BE MET WITH ALL OF MINE RAGE... until I do something else. No sense in being grumpy.

What a horrible night for a curse...

1) Super Mario Galaxy - Bowser's Galaxy Reactor (Just gives off a Grand and epic tone)
2) Mega Man 4 - Dr. Cossack Citadel 2 (This is just as good as the MM2 Fortress theme while adding in its own Russian flare)
3) Mega Ma 10 - Wily Stage 1 (This just may very well be my favorite MM Fortress theme, it is oh so wonderfully composed)
4) Sonic the Hedgehog 3 - Launch Base Zone (Act 1) (Not even a contest. Didn't think much of Death mountain anyway.)

1. Mario and Luigi Dream Team- Neo Bowser Castle (Dang, this one was hard. Both are really good setting the tone but in different ways. For tonight, I think I prefer Neo Bowser's way)
2. Mega Man 4- Dr. Cossack (Stage 2) (Another good pair. Something about MM's music just gets the blood pumping every time)
3. Mega Man 10- Wily Stage 1 (Again, two good tracks but there's just something about that MM music...)
4. Sonic The Hedgehog 3- Launch Base Zone (Act 1) (the only 'no-contest' of this round :P)

1) Mario & Luigi: Dream Team - Neo Bowser Castle - Super Mario Galaxy is good but this one is so...foreboding! <3 If only I could get myself to beat this game!
2) Donkey Kong Country 2: Diddy's Kong Quest - Krook's March - Can't help myself with the DKC2. Just can't. MM one catchy for sure, but a little bland for my tastes.
I have no solid conviction for the other two as of now. Geez some of these choices are pretty tough.

Been thinking lately, that Shulk would actually make a really good Smash Bros. character. (Still would rather have King K. Rool though)
