1) Mario & Luigi: Bowser's Inside Story - In the Final - The other one is better composition wise but this one actually feels like a final boss theme. That's kinda how I've been deciding most of these votes. And again, they're both good enough that I don't care a whole lot which one actually wins.

2) Yoshi's Island - Baby Bowser - Same as above.

3) Jamestown - Conquistador - Simply better

4) Paper Mario - King of the Koopas - Whenever I see this one I keep thinking of the PM:TYD version which is 10x better. Too bad it isn't a final boss theme; this one still gets my vote anyway.

Shulk! HOORAY! Now if they just add King K. Rool, the game will be complete.

Nah, I've thought about it quite a bit, and I can honestly put my vote on Paper Mario - King of the Koopas.

I like both entries about the same, but Kong of the Koopas feels like it belongs in a game and my main exposure to One-Winged Angel is through Advent Children, so I can't really make a full argument for it.

4) Paper Mario - King of the Koopas

(Also, lol at my typo, "Kong of the Koopas." I'm gonna leave it in because it's funny.)

1) FE: Awakening ~ Id (Purpose) — Just awesome.

2) Kingdom Hearts Re: Chain of Memories - Lord of the Castle — There is just nothing memorable about the FF one. The KH one is great.

3) The Legend of Zelda: The Minish Cap - Vaati's Wrath — An OK boss theme. The MGS one would be good without the jazz-like sound, until the point where the other voices come in.

4) Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance - It Has to Be This Way — Absolutely incredible. There are vocals present, but they are entirely background and sound wonderful. 11/10

@MasterWario I did, but Maelstrom and ClockworkMario filled in the rest of their votes and ended nearly everything in a tie. Funny how that works. Maybe we should've had Captain Toad fill in a vote to avoid so many coin-tosses, but oh, well. He's too busy with his brand new adventure to listen to everything and make a full vote, anyways! =D

1) Fire Emblem: Awakening - Id (Purpose) - The other one is good but it needs to be great to beat this one.
2) Kingdom Hearts Re: Chain of Memories - Lord of the Castle - Easy pick. You know I don't care for the Final Fantasy at this point XD
3) The Legend of Zelda: The Minish Cap - Vaati's Wrath - I feel like I got the wrong link on the other one...it was like amped elevator music O_o
4) Metal Gear Rising: Revengance - It Has to Be This Way - Not my style of music, but still pretty epic.

I had a big post going about how and why I got my choices... then my computer shut off... I'm so angry I'm not, anymore...

Anyways:

1) Grandia II - Fight!! (Ver. 4) — Long story short, I literally practically fell asleep listening to Id. And forgot I was even listening to it three times. I'm sure it does great for atmosphere, but out of context, it's really not the best boss theme. Great instrumentation, composition, and triumphant feel, though.

2) Kingdom Hearts Re: Chain of Memories - Lord of the Castle — It's too bad, cause I actually like this FFVII song, but Kingdom Hearts wins out, all the same.

3) The Legend of Zelda: The Minish Cap - Vaati's Wrath — Neither of these were particularly great. For one reason or another, something seemed off about both. However, I just cannot picture a final boss when listening to Snake Eater. At all.

4) Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance - It Has to Be This Way — You just gave me a new favorite boss theme. Holy buh-jeezus! I love the genre, instrumentation, feel, and vocals and... well... everything! ABSOLUTELY EVERYTHING! I like the Sonic CD song, too, but this one just stands out far better. It has to be this way.

I must save my nomination!

1) Fire Emblem: Awakening - Id (Purpose): Bias aside, I make it a point to listen to each song in its entirety (unless it's really long) and the long run in each song determined the outcome. Grandia II is a very good song, but it lost all momentum halfway through it. Id managed to keep the momentum going strong through the entirety of its four minute run, an impressive feat for a song that long.

2) Kingdom Hearts Re: Chain of Memories - Lord of the Castle

3) The Legend of Zelda: The Minish Cap - Vaati's Wrath

4) Metal Gear Rising: Revengance - It Has to Be This Way

Really, I had to explain the first one since I nominated it. If I can't justify voting for that song aside from nominating it, I shouldn't vote for it.
