1. Xenoblade Chronicles
2. Little Inferno

Regarding the difference between Title and Opening themes, it's fine if CapnPancakes decides to include a song that is actually an opening theme, because it is his tournament and he has the final say. Having said that, that does not change the fact that individual voters may not find it acceptable, and they have every right to reject a song that does not strictly adhere to the category if it bothers them. So it's one thing to have it in the tournament, and quite another to have individual people accept it.

My nomination of Kingdom Hearts 2...lost </3
Oh well. Fragile Dreams had a beautiful title theme. At least it lost to a worthy contender. Now I'm lamenting that and Animal Crossing: Wild World losing too early in this tournament ;_;


1. Xenoblade Chronicles
Such a beautiful theme. Not to mention its composer, Yoko Shimomura, also does the music for the Kingdom Hearts games :3

2. Little Inferno

1.Xenoblade Chronicles, both were close........very close.
2.Half-minute hero: To me, it started out as "It's okay I guess" but then it just went AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH And I was like, "MY LEG", Little Inferno also had a good theme, it was also something I wasn't expecting, I was expecting something like "BURN BABY BURN" or "WE DIDN'T START THE FIRE" or "THIS, GIRL IS ON FIRE"

Xenoblade Chronicles wins 12-5
Half-Minute Hero wins 11-6

Sorry, I would have had this up earlier but I was having problems with Youtube working on Chrome. This was a pretty tough round, at least for me. It's nice to listen to some of these songs which i've never heard before though.
Here is a link to the current bracket

1) Secret of Mana vs. Kirby's Return to Dreamland

2) The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion vs. Street Fighter 3: Third Strike

1) Secret of Mana - I'm sure it'll lose since it's up against a First Party game, but I really thought this was a good theme, while RtD's was pretty boring and uninspired.

2) Oblivion - It's a dull, generic song that sounds like it was rejected from The Pirates of the Carribean, but almost anything beats Third Strike's soundtrack, especially it's Title Theme. It's very bad, yet at the same time annoyingly catchy. It's gonna take a crowbar to pry it out of my brain.

1)Secret of Mana( I really wanted to vote for Dreamland but this theme is just great, I need to remember this is not a popularity contest)

2)Street Fighter 3


1) Secret of Mana (Return of Dreamland's title theme has grown on me over time, but I still wouldn't compare it favorably to Secret of Mana's, which is one of my personal favorite songs in the tournament.)
2) The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion (I'm not a fan of either song in this match-up, but Oblivion's isn't grating to me like Third Strike's is.)

Okay... I'm fine with how the last round ended...
@CaptainSquid Thank you.

1. Secret of Mana
2. ...Ugh... both are awful. Gonna go with SF3 though.

Also, what's with the Zelda hate on the Oblivion comment page? I think I threw up a bit inside.

1. Kirby's Return to Dreamland
I'm surprised I'm the first to vote for this. It may not be a great title theme but its still good and its better than Fear of the Heavens which I find to be pretty average.
2. Ugh, I really don't want to vote for either but I agree with @CanisWolfred. While, Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion's title theme is extremely dull and generic, its at least better than the grating yet annoyingly catchy title theme that SFIII: The Third Strike has so if I have to vote for one it would be Oblivion.


1. Kirby's Return to Dreamland
I always enjoy Kirby music and this is no exeption. The Secret of Mana theme is good, but another generic piano RPG theme in my eyes.

2. The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion
Its not great and I certainly enjoy Morrowind's title theme to this one, but the Street Fighter song is annoying and not even enjoyable.
