1.) Kid Icarus Uprising - Aurum Brain
2.) Mega Man 9 - We're are the Robots I like how this one is composed and as always Mega Man's 8 bit style is refreshing and awesome.
3.) Sonic Adventure - Final Egg Initially I thought this was the main Egg Carrier theme. lol :p
4.) Paper Mario The Thousand Year Door - X-Naut Fortress Im sorry but the opening line to the other great track is unbearably long in my opinion. :/

Just in case you all hadn't noticed yet, I have enlisted @GamecubeMan to help me out in updating this thread. I've been rather busy so I didn't get a chance to everyone know sooner.

1) Kingdom Hearts - Hollow Bastion
2) Professor Layton and the Unwound Future - Huge Weapon
3) Pokemon Mystery Dungeon 2 - Temporal Tower
4) Yoshi's Island - Castle Theme
Both of these tracks were really good, but this song will be forever engraved in my memory.

LOL

1) Kingdom Hearts - Hollow Bastion
2) Sigma Palace - Megaman X8 Well would you look at that, first Megaman song I actually liked.
3) LittleBigPlanet - The Wilderness I decided to go with this one for about the same reason as Etrian Odyssey. I like this one better, the Mystery Dungeon one is just more catchy. Also, any particular reason the links changed? XD
4) Yoshi's Island - Castle Theme That Sonic one was pretty good as well...but it just doesn't compete with this.

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

1. Kingdom Hearts - Hollow Bastion Easy choice, just enjoyed the Hollow bastion theme, while the other theme just did its job that's all.
2. Mega Ma X8 - Sigma's Palace Even if Unwound future had alot of great tracks, X8's fortress theme had alot more going for it.
3. Pokemon Mystery Dungeon 2 - Temporal Tower LBP had alot going for it but I just found Temporal Tower to stand out more. Maybe it's because of the synths.
4. Sonic Adventure DX - Egg Carrier Just love that semi mellow tune with a touch of a cosmic feel. Sorry Yoshi, I love you to death, but maybe you'll have better luck in the Athletic theme contest.

Tentative responses until I can actually listen to all of these. There's a good chance these will be my votes, or else I wouldn't be doing this.

1. Kingdom Hearts - Hallow Bastion While Pirate Fortress is still ingrained in my head, to this day, and I still hum it to myself, when sneaking around my house, this one is just legitimately better. Everything Pirate Fortress does right, Hallow Bastion appears to do tenfold. This is a case where my memory was wrong.
2. Professor Layton and the Unwound Future - Huge Weapon This one's a tad close. They have a similar feel, so I can't do a principle vote, like I've been doing oh-so-often, in these tournaments. In the end, I have to give it to this one because there's more going on without losing that feel I love so much, even if I've never been the biggest fan of Professor Layton's instrumentation.
3. Pokemon Mystery Dungeon 2 - Temporal Tower Ewww, this match-up is awful. @__@ I would be shocked if either song from this bracket made it past Round 2. Temporal Tower matches the theme of the contest better, but it's just so uninteresting. The background melodies, the chimes, even the lead all feel so tired and boring. But The Wilderness doesn't even remotely sound like an antagonistic base, so my vote's on this one.
4. Yoshi's Island - Castle Theme Aside from personal bias, this theme just makes me feel like I'm somewhere I'm not supposed to be. It makes me tense and causes me to watch the edges of the screen at most points. EDIT NOTE: After listening to Egg Carrier, I find that it at least fits the theme, but I'm not a fan of the instrumentation and the feel just doesn't strike me as hard as the Castle Theme does.

Something I'd like to note about this contest: It seems that this is gonna heavily split between who prefers Platformer-style enemy territory themes and who prefers RPG/JRPG-style ones. Since these don't go for the same feels, as Platformers want action to be a theme and JRPGs want it to be based on tension.

1) Mega Man 2 - Wily Stage 1/2 I like how Phazon Mines was a mix of ambience and industrial themes, but MM2's fortress theme just keeps me pumped in anticipation for that boss battle.
2) ICO - Castle in the Mist Like Phazon mines, FTL has a great Industrial feel but Castle in the mist, while not threatening by any means, really captures the large and desolated interiors of the castle you are in.
3) Kirby Super Star Ultra - Halberd (On Deck) Like MM2, I just love the fast tempo this tune has that keeps me pumped.
4) Mega Man 3 - Wily Stage 1/2 While it's not as great as the two MM tracks the advanced(yet close behind), It still has enough of that good MM action to keep it on the ranks. Also wasn't a fan of Ganon's theme, I know it's deliberately trying to be a discord to threaten you but it just grated on me.
