1. Castlevania
2. Chrono Cross

Kid Icarus's theme is awesome in it's own right, but simply cannot compare to Chrono Cross's.

1.Neither deserve to be in the tournament but if I had to pick one, it would be Castlevania III: Dracula's Curse. It may be dull but the Sonic CD one is incredibly lacklustre. It feels like its building up to something but then it just ends. The western title theme, Sonic Boo is much better!
2. Both are excellent tracks and as awesome as the title theme of Kid Icarus: Uprising is, Scars of Time is slightly better but it is an opening theme and not a title theme so Kid Icarus: Uprising gets my vote. IMO, opening themes are too different to be in a title theme tournament. Title themes are like a prelude to the game that you're about to play while opening themes are made to go along with a cinematic opening and often act as the main theme.

1. Castlevania III: Dracula's Curse's theme, Sonic CD's theme (JP) while catchy and upbeat, it just isn't enough compared to Sonic Boom, while Castlevania III set's the mood, knowing that Dracula is not done yet, and his curse will get you, so you better rev up those vampire stakes, because i'm sure hungry for some, help, help, MY LEG!!!!! (I might continue doing this)
2. Kid Icarus: Uprising theme feels like you are flying at the first part (Is that part really in the title screen music?) and it also shows the return of Kid Icarus, and that Pit still has to face battles, but in the end, it'll only bring peace, Chrono Cross has a good theme as well, it makes you feel like you're in the world wherever it takes place in.

Aren't LUCARIO's paws adorable? (I review stuff here, check it out : P )

I love to rev up those fryers!

1. Sonic CD
Is awesome, and the JP soundtrack is better than the US one. Untitled
2. Kid Icarus: Uprising
Hard to choose over Chrono Cross.

1. Sonic CD
2. Kid Icarus Uprising. I had a hard time choosing, but when FonistofCruxis pointed out the Chrono Cross song was the opening theme, not the title theme, I checked out the real title theme, and it is completely different. At least for me personally, this makes it an ineligible choice.

1)Professor Layton
No contest from 40s onward it's really epic
2)Fragile Dreams

1) Professor Layton and the Diabolical Box (Professor Layton's Theme)
For Final Fantasy music, it kinda sounds, well, bland to me. Professor Layton easily wins this one.

2) Fragile Dreams: Farewell Ruins of the Moon

1) Final Fantasy IX - Such a nostalgic tune.
2) Kingdom Hearts II - I'd actually say this is the best rendition of this song. It feels sorrowful at first, but builds slowly into something greater. Love it.

And Chrono Cross vs. KI: Uprising should've been closer, IMO.

1) Final Fantasy IX (Why does Professor Layton basically get the same song in the tournament twice? And how did no one nominate Last Specter's far superior title theme?)
2) Kingdom Hearts II (I have mixed feelings about the KH series, but Dearly Beloved has always been a beautiful song and this may well be the best version of it.)
