DAT SCOREBOARD!

4 ("Termination") - 4 ("Master Hand")
5 ("An Earnest Desire of Grey") - 3 ("Final Battle")
5 ("The Battle For Everyone's Souls") - 3 ("Baby Bowser")
7 ("Last Battle") - 1 ("One-Winged Angel")

It's sad that Termination is my preferred genre and I still think Master Hand is better, but oh well.

I'd be lying if I said I didn't see the next two coming, though brackets 1 and 3 can still be turned around very easily. It only takes one vote for Yoshi's Island or Brawl to stand a chance.

I'd be lying if I said I DID see this one coming. Also, lulz at everyone except @Squid calling it "Final Battle" instead of "Last Battle." Myself, included. Surprised I didn't catch that until someone called it the right name. XD

Reporting in for my voting duty! (finally)
1. SSBB: Master Hand
2. Skies of Arcadia
3. Persona 3 - The Battle for Everyone's Souls – I like the shift in tone this occasionally has. Nothing in particular against Yoshi's Island either.
4. Cave Story - Last Battle

@ClockworkMario Yeah, I think we can all agree those are two really good final boss themes.

1) Super Smash Bros. Brawl - Master Hand ~ It was a tough choice though. Definitely very close in my eyes.
2) Skies of Arcadia - Final Battle ~ I spoke too soon. This one was even closer. Where did the easy choices go? D:
3) Persona 3 - The Battle for Everyone's Souls ~ I love the Yoshi's Island boss theme, but this was very close once again, and decided to give it to Persona.
4) Cave Story - Last Battle ~ Cave Story+ has a superior soundtrack, but this one still wins.

1) Kingdom Hearts Re: Chain of Memories - Lord of the Castle - Much as I like FE's music and compositions, I can't say that "Lord of the Castle" doesn't pump me up so much more, and the instrumentation is so chilling. It has a great feel to it with the chorus in the background and an icy piano in the front. I really get that theme of desperation and triumph mixed into one. This is another heavy contender for the final round, and I'll be happy to see it up there.

2) Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance - It Has to Be This Way — Too easy. This is such a powerful song. I kinda like the lyrics. The singing is just subtle enough that if you catch a bit of it, you only catch a phrase or two and it enhances the battle, rather than makes it feel overdone. Another strong contender for the finals. Too bad one of these two will be dropping out, next round.

3) Mario & Luigi: Dream Team - Adventure's End — Really easy for me. This one just feels so epic. It really does feel like the final confrontation at the "Adventure's End."

4) Sonic the Hedgehog ('06) - His World (Solaris Phase 2) — Also really easy for me. This set of brackets is extremely strong. Three absolute power houses gunning for a spot in the final four.

1) Kingdom Hearts Re: Chain of Memories - Lord of the Castle — FE is good, but that choral part just kills the buildup it had.

2) Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance - It Has to Be This Way — Do I even need to give a reason?

3)Ace Combat Zero: The Belkan War - Zero — It's just a better and more varied piece.

4)Sonic the Hedgehog 2006 - Solaris (Phase 2) — I don't really like either, but the phrase I like in this song lasts longer than the other song.

1)Fire Emblem: Awakening - Id – Got to wonder if that name is a hint towards Sigmund Freuds psychoanalysis, where id is "unorganized part of the personality structure that contains a human's basic, instinctual drives. Id is the only component of personality that is present from birth. It is the source of our bodily needs, wants, desires, and impulses, particularly our sexual and aggressive drives." It'd just make sense in the context of the game. Anyways a great piece, even though it doesn't immediately scream 'epic final boss'.
2)Metal Gear Rising- It has to be this way – It really has to be this way.
3)Mario & Luigi: Dream Team - Adventure's End
4)Sonic the Hedgehog 2006 Solaris Phase 2

Anyone else getting the feeling that "It Has to Be This Way" is OP? I mean, I don't remember perfectly, but didn't it win last round in a total blow out, too?

Each batch of voting we do, you vote for one of the two options in four different matchups.
Eg. for 1) You vote for Viewtiful Joe, or Sonic Unleashed. Rinse and repeat for the other three.
The link to the bracket at the top of my post should give you a better idea of how it works.
