aww, Maya's theme is so good! But I have to vote for World Bowser, it's just such a jam

I forgot to vote last time! Thankfully all the ones I wanted to win won anyway… but who won the third one? It was Amy’s Theme (Sonic) vs. Mipha’s Theme (BotW), but @ThePirateCaptain said Deltarune won?

Anyway, this time, I voted N’s Theme, It’s Pronounced Rules (I’m sort of hoping that one to win now), Theme of Laura, Chrono Trigger and… Maya Fey. I love BOTH of those last two songs, but I don’t really consider World Bowser to be a character theme, so I voted Maya Fey. I wouldn’t be upset if that song won.

Heigh Ho Heigh Ho. It’s off to work (from home) I go.

@BabyYoda71
I grouped the tiebreakers together so the results were slightly out of order this time. Mipha’s Theme beat Amy’s Theme.

Gumshoe and Maya’s themes are some of my favorites in the tournament. I forgot how good Ace Attorney music was.

For me, Fallen Down (I’m the only one? Really?), Cammy, Dark Pit, Olivia’s Plea and Partner’s Theme (Professor Layton’s theme’s link is to a deleted video, fyi)

Heigh Ho Heigh Ho. It’s off to work (from home) I go.

God Dark Pit vs Kazuma's Theme is such a brutally hard decision since I think they're some of the most iconic songs of the 3DS era. I went with Kazuma myself (in addition to Cammy, Godot and PMD Partner) for having the most personal impact on me but jesus was this round tough.

@BabyYoda71 Fallen Down is an absolutely excellent song (especially for how short it is), but it's very hard to stop the suave coffee man's theme, I think you'll probably agree.

@Fizza Yeah for all songs for Fallen Down to lose too, that one’s one of my favourites.

Toriel's theme is nearly bottom tier by Undertale standards while Godot's theme is very much top tier by Ace Attorney standards.

I do still think Godot's theme is still a lot better, but it doesn't help that one is widely considered one of the best songs of an entire series, and another is probably very rarely considered that for merely its one game.

Similiarly, and I might've said this before also, but Linebeck's theme is helped a lot by being in the worst Zelda soundtrack, which helps makes it look even better by comparison.

How is Layton losing by so much? I honestly thought that one would get to the final.

@Eel As someone who's going to be playing Skyward Sword for the very first time soon, I am absolutely ecstatic to see Groose for the first time as well. I know the exact voice I'm giving him and I cannot wait to do it.

As for my own picks, I went with Rose of May, Vega's Theme (though I will not be mad in the slightest if Aerith's Theme wins out), Kapp'n's Theme, Calem/Serena's Theme, Mipha's Theme and Groose's Theme (I love Julius Belmont's Theme as well, but it's hard to beat the Groose when said Groose is loose).

Luma, Aerith, Kapp’n, Mii Channel, Queen and Groose for me… most of my favourite Undertale/Deltarune songs have or are losing, so Groose is pretty much who I’m cheering for right now.

Yeah this came across harsher than I meant it. Undertale's soundtracks is legitimately an all time great video game soundtrack, I refuse to believe otherwise. The Toriel theme is merely good, which is unquestionably below the average song quality of the songs in the game.

To bring it back to Phantom Hourglass again, it is a bottom-tier Zelda game but I still liked it overall.

@Dogorilla Sad Layton hours.

Also, you've painfully reminded me how much I want to play this series, even though the company who created it is as radio-silent in the West these days as a graveyard. I'm slightly tempted to just pick up a used 3DS online and play it that way because, unlike a series he later crossed over with, it doesn't seem we'll be getting any re-releases anytime soon.
