KamikazePotato ranked the Brawl Soundtrack with short writeups in March of 2008.

Section 1: Super Mario Bros. (19 songs)[]

19. A10 - Mario & Luigi 2 - Gritzy Desert
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-FrcpyyLS_w

I really don't care for this one. It's annoying, repetitive, and somehow got chosen over some much better M&L music as the sole representative of M&L.

18. A14 - Super Mario Sunshine - Ricco Harbor
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wcfHM7JiyRE

And with the easy choice out of the way, now it gets touch, as there are few songs in SSBB I actually don't like. The runner-up for last place has to this, though, as it just doesn't entertain me as nearly much as the other music.

17. A16 - Super Mario Brothers - Overworld Remix
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=f0rLObOLYU8

This is certainly an interesting song. It took some chances with rhythm and instruments...unfortunately, I didn't like the end result too much.

16. A13 - Super Mario Sunshine - Delfino Plaza
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mHpwywtXcm0

I don't care for SMS music much. Not bad, just sort of boring.

15. A20 - Super Mario Kart - Mario Circuit
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cUnscHJaQT0

I just don't like racing game music much (which you'll see when I get to F-Zero, which good just rubs me the wrong way).

14. A21 - Mario Kart 64 - Luigi Raceway
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_z2vFP3Ib3g

See above, although the fact that this is associated with Luigi helps. Yes, I am a huge Luigi fan, which you'll see soon enough.

13. A15 - Super Mario 64 - Bob-Omb Battlefield
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4yJ1rv0ZhzU

I like this song, but there's only so many times I can hear it.

12. A23 - Mario Kart Double Dash - Rainbow Road
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hNoJZ-HbVf0

I like this more than the other racing themes. Catchy.

11. A06 - Super Mario World - Castle Theme
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wNLccE7lw88

I just recently beat SMW for the first time, and this gives me bad memories of Lemmy's Castle (whichever one was right before Bowser's). AUGH THAT PLACE.

10. A02 - Mushroomy Kingdom 1-2
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SxJsNsh2gLE

Classic Mario right here.

9. A08 - New Super Mario Brothers - Overworld
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ofi22jb3U4A

NSMB gets too much flak. I played it, liked it, then checked this board's opinion on it and everyone hates it.

8. A05 - Super Mario Brothers 3 - Airship Theme
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zthYCIV97ug

DUN DUN dun dun dun dun dun dun DUN DUN dun dun dun dun dun dun

7. A03 - Super Mario Brothers - Water Theme
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4tS5K5_PPBA

WHERE IS DIRE DIRE DOCKS SAKURAI. WHERE IS IT. Besides that, I like this.

6. A17 - Mario Brothers - Medley
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kSnpSi218Sk

This one is different, in a good way.

5. A04 - Super Mario Land - Dungeon Theme
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4XTE0fl8T1s

Super Mario Land 2 was the first Mario game I ever played (don't judge me you), so I can at least pretend this song from a previous game gives me nostalgia. Also, it's good.

4. A22 - Mario Kart DS - Waluigi Pinball
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UIoz1bpzHWk

What the hell is Waluigi Pinball, and why does it have such a good song?

3. A07 - Super Mario World - Title & Ending
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G-N6uIOS194

The SMW Ending is one of my favorite songs, so I'm really glad that they included it.

2. A01 - Mushroomy Kingdom 1-1
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GhNgQ16s-u8

Nothing needs to be said here. I'm pretty sure everyone loves this.

1. A09 - Luigi's Mansion - Theme
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dm2YfKjU9yI

That's right! All hail to the man in green! Seriously though, this came out of left field for me. Love this remix.

Section 2: Donkey Kong (10 songs)[]

10 .B09 - Donkey Kong - Level Theme
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GjONwATV3Q0

This music is iconic. It also consists of 5 notes, repeated over and over. By today's standards? GTFO.

9. B04 - Donkey Kong - DK Arcade Mix
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ChYdzDkhalo

Love-or-hate music right here. I like the first half, the second half not so much.

8. B08 - Donkey Kong Country - Jungle Japes
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3vZkssqre-Y

Heard it many times before, and also isn't as interesting as the rest of the DK music.

Also, youtube can't seem to agree on what this should be called.

7. B10 - Barrel Blast - Jungle Level 1
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AnuoYikJYE0

...What was Barrel Blast again? Anyway, this isn't bad.

6. B01 - Donkey Kong Country - Jungle Hijinx
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BWFV3momlBM

This is Jungle Japes with a fresh coat of paint.

5. B02 - Donkey Kong Country - Overworld
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=biQpp3l4XlU

I like this. Nice and calm.

4. B07 - Jungle Beat - Battle for Storm Hill
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=esGfKKD7JqM

Doesn't sound like something you'd here in a DK game, but it's good.

3. B03 - Donkey Kong - Title Theme
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CpCeX1yTD6c

I'm liking most of these medley-esque songs.

2. B05 - Donkey Kong Country - King K. Rool's Ship
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NGd989ZjRKI

This game needed more DKC tracks. A lot more.

1. B06 - Donkey Kong Country - Bramble Blast (a.k.a. Stickerbrush Symphony)
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kKI5bdmUrb0

This also needs little introduction. Very nice.

Section 3: The Legend of Zelda (18 songs)[]

18. C16 - The Wind Waker - Sailing Theme
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QGI1BXUMAO4

Because I would want to hear this even more after that damn Triforce hunt. Seriously though, not bad, but I've heard this too much.

17. C11 - The Wind Waker - Molgera
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1ySB5y8wbNk

I just don't care for WW music. IMolgera isn't bad, but look at the competition.

16. C14 - Majora's Mask - Termina Field
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2RkNZEfaYu8

OoT>MM

so there

15. C10 - Ocarina of Time - Song of Storms
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=I1O0I8EwFVY

I love this song, but I think that if I listened to it too much it would drive me insane. Plus, the rest of the Zelda music is just that good.

14. C12 - Four Swords Adventure - Village of the Blue Maiden
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KMiaDlsfEUI

Unfortunately, I never played FSA, as I didn't have the ridiculous amount of unecessary accessories required to play it.

13. C18 - Twilight Princess - Hidden Village
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nHEj_GMXJvc

I like it, but I can't stop comparing it to WA music, which doesn't help it.

12. C04 - Link to the Past - Dark World
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MAGFFm0o4u0

I know a lot of people like the Dark World theme, but I've never understood it. I like this remix a lot more, though.

11. C03 - Legend of Zelda II - Hyrule Temple
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TZqosIbVnkQ

Another example of a good song being hurt because I've heard it too much. Hyrule Temple was my most played Melee stage, and even though 9/10 of the time I switched to the FE music, I've still heard this plenty.

10. C08 - Ocarina of Time - Hyrule Field
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pEOD9XChyzs

Aah, brings back memories. Of that gigantic plant enemy thing that I hated. And the skeletons that came out at night that freaked me out.

9. C19 - Twilight Princess - Midna's Theme
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mfr7ZLq8M2o

Man, I like TP way more than any of you. I'm like the only person here who has it as their favorite Zelda game.

8. C17 - Twilight Princess - Hyrule Field
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xUAwXVLbtSc

What I just said.

7. C05 - Link to the Past - Dark World Woods
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WjEdN0EomQ8

Wait, isn't this Dark Mountain?

6. C15 - The Wind Waker - Dragon Roost Island
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FpzeRRhx4Y0

The love this song receives is perplexing to me. It's good, not best thing ever.

5. C09 - Ocarina of Time - Medley
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4xpgV2f-jTQ

Yay for Medleys!

4. C02 - Legend of Zelda - Main Theme
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HfRCoLnwv8w

Introduction needed not yes.

3. C01 - Legend of Zelda - Main Theme Remix
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uAmwfPb33RE

Seldom do I put a remix of such an iconic song like the Zelda Main Theme above the original, but here you go.

2. C13 - Ocarina of Time - Gerudo Valley
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JE-hPn_ANhU

Yes. Very yes.

1. C07 - Legend of Zelda - Tal Tal Heights
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=av2GglFEvOk

Tal Tal Heights is actually only like half of this song (it's combined with something else), but it's still enough to put this in first. I love Tal Tal Heights.

Section 4: Metroid (10 songs)[]

I'm gonna get this out of the way: Where is Phendrana Drifts? Seriously.

10. D02 - Metroid - Norfair Remix
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kdFKEDTE1aY

I just don't like it.

9. D08 - Metroid Prime - Parasite Queen Boss Battle
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6d1EFg_et7U

Meh.

8. D06 - Metroid Fusion - Sector 1
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=n2m2oxWI8SA

See above. I just feel apathetic about some of the Metroid music.

7. D05 - Metroid Prime - Samus' Theme Song
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PyD3gaUQYh8

Kind of boring, really.

6. D01 - Metroid - Brinstar Remix
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=S3zTRnLSjOw

SAMUS IS UNDER FIRE SHE SENT AN EMERGENCY DIRECTIVE JOIN THE FIGHT

5. D07 - Metroid Prime - Menu Theme
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u1t6FVA5ytc

Good, but not as good as the original version due to changing it around plus that guy with the voice.

4. D10 - Metroid Prime - Echoes
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2cOpLLE-Rzs

This probably played during the 'escape before the planet asplodes' sequence. I don't specifically remember it, but it sounds like that.

3. D09 - Metroid Prime - Meta Ridley Boss Battle
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CDP9oCBbuoI

Good stuff.

2. D04 - Super Metroid - Ridley Boss Battle
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RcCHiet6t1k

...Wait, Ridley's theme isn't first?

1. D03 - Metroid - Ending Theme
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LdHhBHmj3w8

What do you mean Ridley's battle theme isn't first! You suck, KP! You suck!

Section 5: Yoshi (6 song)[]

6. E07 - Yoshi's Island DS
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JO70hl3BeZA

Yoshi music is hard to rank, as it pretty much all sounds the same to me.

5. E03 - Yoshi's Island - Athletic Remix
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BvjIz mYKYFA

See above.

P.S. You'll have to put the link above together manually, as the random assortment of letters spells out j i z m, which is apparently a banned word.

4. E06 - Yoshi Touch & Go - Flower Garden
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RhdQLGgqMOo&feature=related

See above.

3. E05 - Yoshi's Island - Flower Garden
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1JpCDq3uzso

Only 6 Yoshi songs, and they're including alternate version of songs already in Brawl? Also, the soundtrack has all these Yoshi songs mixed up. This is not the Flower Garden, I believe.

2. E02 - Yoshi's Island - Athletic
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BAAXnh5zsvs

Only 6 Yoshi songs, and they're including 2 alternate version of songs already in Brawl?

1. E01 - Yoshi's Story - Ending Theme
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j9kDTyKi5WA

This makes me happy. :)

Section 6: Kirby (12 songs)[]

12. F11 - Kirby's Air Ride - Frozen Hillside
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NHMcM9whpRU

Not bad, but not particularly good either.

11. F10 - Kirby's Air Ride - Checker Knights
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Jof5evHx8gQ

You know, I actually like this song. It's ranked 2nd-worst in this section. The Kirby section kicks ASS.

10. F09 - The Amazing Mirror - Nature Area
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1YASZ9s085w

A nice basic Kirby theme.

9. F01 - Kirby's Air Ride - Legendary Machine
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=61Ycazi3Qy4

The last Air Ride music. Good but not great.

8. F08 - Kirby 64 - Zero Two
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zBWmvLW6d6g

I loved the original Zero Two. The remix is good, but uh, get rid of the damn voice going HEY, and a few other issues I have with it prevent it from going high.

7. F12 - Squeek Squad - Squeek Squad Arrival
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aex81vQupIY

I don't usually care for this kind of music, but hey, it's good.

6. F03 - Kirby Super Star - Boss Theme Medley
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZXKlEUlzEk0

Nice. I can recognize a few themes there.

5. F06 - Kirby Super Star - Meta Knight's Revenge
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Gld2Ws8Q4Vo

It's getting hard to rank these. I love the Kirby music.

4. F04 - Kirby's Adventure - Butter Building
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HcLbkh5497I

Simply excellent.

3. F05 - Kirby Super Star - Gourmet Race
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0LZmIu52C8Y

Apparently, Kirby + Rock = kickass

2. F02 - Kirby's Dreamland - King Dedede's Theme
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xEdIgkod1so

Yes. I played the crap out of Kirby's Dream Land when I was younger.

1. F07 - Kirby Super Star - Marx Battle Theme
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=L9kP92PIoVE

And odd #1 choice, I know, but I can't help it. I love this theme, a lot.

Section 7: Star Fox (10 songs)[]

10. G11 - Star Fox 64 - Area 6 Remix
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dIYojdEe0es

Flat-out don't like it.

9. G08 - Star Fox Assault - Sector Z
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5krzX5gdNdU

Boring.

8. G07 - Star Fox Assault - Fortuna
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=o_1wIk5Koa8

Also boring.

7. G09 - Star Fox Assault - Star Wolf Theme
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dzhfFJCnNkQ

This should probably be higher, but there's no way for me to accurately rank it when I keep comparing it to the original theme.

6. G01 - Star Fox - Main Theme
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lHZ2kIOFaMk

Honestly, despite being the main theme I don't recognize it. Still like it, though.

5. G02 - Star Fox - Corneria
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=afNhig3DxI0

This is not what Corneria sounded like. I think. It's been a while. Oh, wait, Corneria from the original Star Fox? Nevermind.

4. G10 - Star Fox - Space Armada
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wm6QWixuFN8

Unlike some of the others, this actually makes me think of a space battle.

3. G03 - Star Fox 64 - Theme Mix
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wds0hQnadvs

They took the already good SF music from SSB/SSBM and made it better. What's not to like?

2. G04 - Star Fox 64 - Area 6

Diversity can go die in a fire, we need more SF64 music. There's some real gems there, and this is one of them.

1. G05 - Star Fox 64 - Star Wolf Theme
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8igEZCR7cRM

This is pretty much the perfect rivalry theme. Not especially epic or dramatic, but very good all the same.

Section 8: Pokemon[]

10. H05 - Pokémon Ruby & Sapphire - Wild Pokemon Battle
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1ZyDL6Y14UU

Too basic, and suffers from 'I've heard it a ton already' syndrome.

9. H07 - Pokémon Diamond & Pearl - Wild Pokemon Battle
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rIH4qPqpNdY

See above.

8. H02 - Pokémon Blue & Red - Pokemon Center
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Qaw82cQ_3Po

See above, only this actually does a decent job at making an old, overdone theme fresh again.

7. H04 - Pokémon Stadium & Evolution Theme
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j558QfDYHhc

Heh, I remember hearing this on the site and thinking it was awesome. Still like it, but it can't compare to the rest of the music.

6. H06 - Pokémon Ruby & Sapphire - Victory Road
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ykH5ZR8j0p8

I like it. Dramatic and unrelenting! Fitting for Victory Road, which is always a trial to get through.

5. H03 - Pokémon Blue & Red - Route 1
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=45pmAwB5NpU

Nostalgia. Overload.

4. H10 - Pokémon Diamond & Pearl - Route 209
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=E2Jibyd9nT8

This song was the saving grace for an annoying area. Very soothing.

3. H01 - Pokémon Blue & Red - Main Theme
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5upNwNt7Bo0

Notalgia. Overload. Part. 2. Very exciting and awesome.

2. H09 - Pokémon Diamond & Pearl - Team Galaxy Battle
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dai-ygG55kw

I wasn't expecting this to be this good. A great theme for Team Galaxy...who by the way are better than Team Rocket, yes it's true.

1. H08 - Pokémon Diamond & Pearl - Dialga & Palkia Battle
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B0BSMdtawEE

Even though the battle is pathetically easy, the battle music is still very good. You don't often hear something like this in Pokemon.

Section 9: F-Zero (10 songs)[]

10. I04 - F-Zero X - Main Menu
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=a0karqhI040

Short, repetitive, annoying voice? No thanks.

9. I08 - F-Zero GX - Replay
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d9h_GBRqrvY

It just doesn't get you pumped up like an F-Zero song should.

8. I10 - F-Zero GX - Green Plant

Here's where it gets tough. I actually like Green Plant, just not as much as the other songs.

7. I05 - F-Zero X - Silence
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=L2JUO1REHGk

This song title makes no sense.

6. I02 - F-Zero - White Land
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FkLlogoGLE4

Again, good, exciting, but the other songs just surpass it.

5. I06 - F-Zero X - Devil's Forest
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0uNXusTDDXw

The voice in this song actually doesn't bug me that much. It flows pretty well with it, I think.

4. I03 - F-Zero - Fire Field
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=znCpVaocrRA

I really like this one, nice guitars. It feels so low.

3. I01 - F-Zero - Mute City
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lZzSoJ1MF0Q

Picking between my #2 and #3 spot was incredibly hard. This one is an old standby everyone loves.

2. I09 - F-Zero GX - Vegas Palace
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TFdP94yCM6U

Different from what you'd expect in F-Zero, but still awesome. Captures that casino feeling perfectly.

1. I07 - F-Zero X - White Land
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=crp49AcP5Zw

Just pure win and speed and kickass.

Section 10: Fire Emblem (11 songs)[]

11. J06 - Fire Emblem The Sacred Stones - Combat Preparation
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1twOtZAP32Y

Sacred Stones demonstrates it's failure as one of the worst FE games by contributing only one boring, repetitive song with practically GBA quality music.

10. J08 - Fire Emblem Blazing Sword - Strije to the Challenge
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hYR_zkFYmdw

I don't particularly like any of the FE7 music, so a medley of them isn't going to impress me.

9. J04 - Fire Emblem Gaiden - With Mila's Divine Protection
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tdES2_00KG4

Not bad, just kind of repetitive.

8. J11 - Fire Emblem Path Of Radiance - Power-Hungry Fool
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gFqf4RiFMMk

Neat, and I like it, but kind of weird for a Smash Bros. game.

7. J12 - Fire Emblem Path Of Radiance - Victory Is Near
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wS0e-8sjd4A

Uplifting!

6. J03 - Fire Emblem - Medley
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kUC15wg71Q8

This is a much better medley than the previous one.

5. J07 - Fire Emblem Sword of Seals - Winning Road
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=p6CX0P0uAR4

This is basically Victory is Near but better.

4. J02 - Fire Emblem - Main Theme
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3SqI8uz6j5I

I adore this theme, and the only reason it's so low is because I adore the next three songs even more.

3. J13 - Fire Emblem Radiant Dawn - Eternal Bond
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Z0DEcB6YSXE

Very good song, even if there's better ones that could have been chosen from Radiant Dawn.

2. J10 - Fire Emblem Path Of Radiance - Crimea Attacks
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=edWILawekjA

My third-favorite track from PoR. Damn I love FE music.

1. J09 - Fire Emblem Path Of Radiance - Black Knight Battle
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zrW8GC5sJAs

This just exudes badass and badassery. Ol' Burger King is an awesome villain in both games.

Section 12: Mother (6 songs)[]

6. K10 - Mother 3 - New Pork City
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aLsiL7qlxRk

First, take a look at the section number. K10. That's right, 4 Mother songs were cut from the final product! Total BS, I say. Oh, and this song is okay, but not nearly as good as the other Mother songs.

5. K09 - Mother 3 - Smashing Song of Praise
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DicgmEkCU-g

A very good song that is ranked low due to there being very few Mother songs, each with very high quality.

4. K05 - Mother 3 - Humoresque of a Little Dog
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uplPC9tcy04

Whoever did this deserves a ton of praise for taking a song that I didn't care about and making it aawesome.

3. K08 - Mother 3 - Love Theme
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4MPY_ZMGjQA

Very nice slow song. Nice and soothing.

2. K07 - Mother 3 - Porky's Theme
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qpwx7nbj_Qk

And excellent personification of Pokey's, ahem, arrogance and greed.

1. K01 - Mother 3 - Snowman
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3lXLgbJqN9I

I love, love, love the Snowman theme. I was so happy when I found out it was in Brawl.

Section 13: Pikmin (8 songs)[]

8. L03 - Pikmin - Environment
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SpbDO6cxRJg

Yeah, uh...what?

7. L06 - Pikmin - Main Theme
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4Wlv03VXfJA

So boring.

6. L05 - Pikmin - Tane no Uta
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HShEpMsjgT0

MAKE IT STOP.

5. L08 - Pikmin - Ai no Uta (French)
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yVuO6J7pyqM

There's no real ranking for the previous few songs. I don't like any of them. To whoever picked the Pikmin selection: YOU'RE DOING IT WRONG

4. L07 - Pikmin - Title Theme
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y1oOQpqGrSI

Holy hell, something I can listen to without clawing my ears out! This one is decent.

3. L02 - Pikmin - Forest of Hope
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cEPB5LcLRbo

Peaceful. At least it doesn't make my ears bleed. Okay, so I really do like it. Pikmin songs in general aren't as good though.

2. L04 - Pikmin - Ai no Uta
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=esYm9q-bi4w

Even if you've heard this before, go to the link anyway and watch it. It made me like this song a lot more.

1. L01 - Pikmin 2 - Worldmap
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nRPeDQlEesg

I really like this theme. Finally, they did it right.

Section 14: Wario (8 songs)[]

We will be skipping this section, as I don't like any of the songs here. Not joking.

Section 15: Animal Crossing (11 songs)[]

11. N06 - Animal Crossing Wild World - Tom Nooks Store
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JjRacPKDVsM

The hell is this? Tom Nook is an evil bastard. This song doesn't fit him at all. Also it's kind of boring.

10. N05 - Animal Crossing Wild World - The Roost
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9NQUmJUT8Ac

Ah, peaceful. Too peaceful. When you're up against a bunch of K.K. Slider songs, you can't be this calm! It borders on boring.

9. N09 - Animal Crossing - K.K. Gumbo
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3ncmvdskKck

My least favorite of the K.K. songs. It just doesn't sound as good.

8. N12 - Animal Crossing - K.K. Condor
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=C4V3AyQMUjY

Not bad, but the competition is too strong.

7. N11 - Animal Crossing - DJ K.K
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eOrKJzwhwN8

See above.

6. N10 - Animal Crossing - Rockin' K.K
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=46gLBXaeY3Q

Gotta love how it blatantly rips off a popular rock song.

5. N08 - Animal Crossing - K.K. Western
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NRPeIHMYtp4

Brawl has some nice western themed songs in it.

4. N07 - Animal Crossing - K.K. Cruisin'
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wi78_psH4IA

Now this is a slow song done right!

3. N01 - Animal Crossing Wild World - Title Theme
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gLn7t2QfG5o

I can't think of a better AC-themed song. This is a perfect theme for it.

2. N03 - Animal Crossing - K.K. Medley
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wrI6Ds145tI

Yet another kickass medley.

1. N02 - Animal Crossing - Go K.K. Rider!
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u3bbXbxVhFo

It was a tough decision, but in the end there can only be one K.K. Rider!

Section 16: Kid Icarus (4 songs)[]

lol 4 songs no one cares about Pit

4. P04 - Kid Icarus - NES Medley
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=spuwmqC7QlU

lol anything with NES quality

3. P02 - Kid Icarus - Title Theme
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zNqLR5_MRJw

Doesn't really interest me, but there's not much to choose from!

2. P03 - Kid Icarus - Skyworld
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fyiUiSK1J5E

This isn't bad, I like it. Is it just me or does it remind you a tad of Tetris?

1. P01 - Kid Icarus - Underworld
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lgbJ2mik__k

I like this, but it kind of won by default here.

Section 17: Random Crap Part 1 (13 songs)[]

13. Q14 - Nazo no Murasamejou
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=K40Aa38CE7s

Making an asian-sounding song on the NES doesn't turn out very well.

12. Q01 - NES Medley
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=k-HUjhhI174

Haha, will people hate me for this. Random songs smushed together that don't really flow + NES quality? Eh. Just not for me.

11. Q13 - Wrecking Crew
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kEDok3thpqk

Not bad, but I still don't like NES quality.

10. Q02 - Stack-Up Medley
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qC4QIxi7qUY

The hell is Stack-Up?

9. Q05 - Clu Clu Land
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0VoUmQqsGFc

No idea what Clu Clu Land is, either. It sounds familiar, but...nope.

8. Q04 - Dr. Mario - Chill
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nEM-RHJsfPw

I kind of like this. A different take on Dr. Mario.

7. Q06 - Balloon Fight - Balloon Trip
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CbGOHNRIjH8

Now this is a nice NES remix!

6. Q09 - Famicom Grand Prix 2
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LQxMBmEo4vs

Random racing song!

5. Q07 - Ice Climber
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Hy3MrobCs8g

So much better than the original IC song.

4. Q12 - X - Tunnel Scene
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mbbt9JNbLhE

No idea what this is from, but it's good.

3. Q11 - Tetris - Type B
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2M90qh5gocg

This song is too hilarious not to put high.

2. Q10 - Tetris - Type A
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WUid6k-O4mI

Tetris remixes are almost always awesome.

1. Q08 - Shin Onigashima
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=45JS6hA0Mcc

Random kickass guitar song ahoy! It was a tough decision between this and Tetris Type A, but I love my guitars.

Section 18: Random Crap Part 2 (16 songs)[]

This will take a while.

16. R03 - Electroplankton
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3jHkru5seKI

This is as bad as Environment from Pikmin.

15. R10 - Nintendo Wii - Mii Channel
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1CoMtrwyjpU

Too boring.

14. R08 - Big Brain Academy - Title Theme
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cq2ywLdJ6ZI

What is that...voice...thing...

13. R13 - Shaberu! DS Cooking Navi
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NkAQGxbBh_k

VOICE. IN MY BRAIN.

12. R17 - Wii Play - Cow Racing
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2I-_S_cCPjQ

...wat

11. R15 - Brain Age - Title Theme
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oXdRHJjYsec

Meh, just don't care for it.

10. R11 - Nintendo Wii - Wii Shop Channel
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AwROAh6WZrY

Not bad for a Wii Channel theme.

9. R02 - Nintendo DS - PictoChat
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1TZ9sVSB_Vk

I'm impressed with this song, but PictoChat beeps and bloops can still only go so far.

8. R16 - Wii Sports - Title Theme
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X666yWFml2s

Not bad for a Wii Sports song, but it's still a Wii Sports song.

7. R14 - Excite Truck
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dT78cnWMnqU

Not bad.

6. R06 - Panel de Pon - Lip's Theme
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=awBCEmXOrGs

So much random obscure stuff.

5. R09 - 1080 Snowboarding - Golden Forest
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=het0oSiwzw8

Also not bad. Random guitar songs can't hurt.

4. R07 - Chousouju Mecha MG - Marionation Gear
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wCPhBqVrm_Y

Obscure meters off the charts! It's good, though.

3. R04 - Game & Watch
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u6qblJYtJYs

Woah, unexpected awesome right here!

2. R05 - Mario Tennis & Mario Golf
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8KIqKfhzuR4

See above. This is actually really good.

1. R12 - Golden Sun - Battle Theme Medley
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZL-fgCuKqx4

No sense in denying it; this kicks the crap out of everything in this section. Isaac got snubbed, big time.

Section 19: Metal Gear (9 songs)[]

9. S11 - Metal Gear Portable Ops - Calling to the Night
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=k_hiwsqg1Nw

arg vocal songs

8. S05 - Metal Gear Solid III - Snake Eater
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=57g2YhBJ178

arg vocal songs, even if it is catchier than the last one

7. S10 - Metal Gear II - Opening Theme
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tDMEz0m7tkA

Low quality, kind of boring.

6. S07 - Metal Gear Solid - Cavern Theme
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DE-8roahtw0

A nice ambient song, but it's completely outclassed by the other stuff on the list.

5. S03 - Metal Gear - Theme of Tara
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fQbFVpB8HwQ

This is certainly a unique song. Very good, too, but the overall feel of it seems a bit off to me.

4. S06 - Metal Gear Solid IV - Love Theme
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UtNHv5PvLyU

Awesome from a game that isn't even out yet! Please be ported, MGS4!

3. S08 - Metal Gear Solid III - Battle in the Base
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LY__EmfMFSY

MGS3 is the weakest of the trilogy in my eyes, but you can't fault its music.

2. S04 - Metal Gear Solid II - Yell (Dead Cell)
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uH7ad-E_xJ4

This song is absolutely insane and awesome, even if the in-game version is better.

1. S02 - Metal Gear Solid - Encounter
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=daeFNQ3ht5E

I don't remember this song from MGS, but it's extremely good. It's reminiscent of the MGS2 Main Theme which should have gotten in.

Section 20: Sonic (12 songs)[]

12. U11 - Sonic Rush - Right There, Right Now
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Omx8nUsnkDY

Even if you took out the vocals, I still hate everything else about it.

11. U08 - Sonic Adventure - Open Your Heart
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=low86RCqOIs

Unlike other Sonic vocal songs, this isn't even fun in a bad way. It's just painful.

10. U13 - Sonic And The Secret Rings - Seven Rings In Hand
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AVxPPn-ducU

See above.

9. U07 - Sonic R - Super Sonic Racing
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RcUTf9B-PhE

Still bad.

8. U02 - Sonic The Hedgehog - Scrap Brain Zone
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_8alLPkfg8I

Even without vocals, I don't like this.

7. U01 - Sonic The Hedgehog - Green Hill Zone
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wWGh7jCfkyQ

Iconic? Yes. Heard it a million times? You bet. Not that great to begin with? Yup.

6. U06 - Sonic CD - Sonic Boom
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=n9JLH00tDOM

Now this is a vocal song that's so bad it's entertaining. SONIC BOOOOM, SONIC BOOOOM

5. U03 - Sonic The Hedgehog II - Emerald Hill Zone
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=c0oo0oaaWqc

Not bad. I like this one.

4. U10 - Sonic Heroes - Sonic Heroes
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EH7ZQx0I52Q

Heh, another vocal song...that I, uh...actually like. Yeah, I know.

3. U12 - Sonic The Hedgehog - His World Remix
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=l5GNqzyRLLI

This one is just good. No vocals, great beat. Why can't they all be like this?

2. U04 - Sonic The Hedgehog III - Angel Island Zone
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0KDInBsVJEo

See above. I also really like this one.

1. U09 - Sonic Adventure 2 - Live And Learn
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SFjp8Fw3cbg

Doesn't really need and introduction. Also, the music makes no sense. Still great though.

Final Section: My Favorites (36 songs)[]

I won't post youtube links anymore, as they've all already been posted.

36. P03 - Kid Icarus - Skyworld

Yeah, while good this kind of got here by default.

35. R05 - Mario Tennis & Mario Golf

See above.

34. G04 - Star Fox 64 - Area 6

Good stuff, but there's better.

33. P01 - Kid Icarus - Underworld

This is good, but even the best of the KI music isn't that great.

32. E02 - Yoshi's Island - Athletic

Here's where the hard part begins. I really like this one, but the competition is insane.

31. L04 - Pikmin - Ai no Uta
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=esYm9q-bi4w

Much praise for this song is required, as I normally despise Japanese vocal crap. This is the only one I will re-post the link for, and that's because anyone who hasn't watched it should. It's sad.

30. L01 - Pikmin 2 - Worldmap

For a Pikmin song, this is very good. I still don't like the overall theme of Pikmin music, though.

29. N01 - Animal Crossing Wild World - Title Theme

This song alternates between very good parts and just good parts. This inconsistency hurts it in the end, even if it's still great.

28. I09 - F-Zero GX - Vegas Palace

Man, this was so much easier when half the songs in a category were average. Ranking good stuff is hard.

27. D04 - Super Metroid - Ridley Boss Battle

I don't LOVE this is much as some people do.

26. B05 - Donkey Kong Country - King K. Rool's Ship

A good remix from a good song, but the overall feel of it is a little...off.

25. G05 - Star Fox 64 - Star Wolf Theme

CAN'T LET YOU DO THAT, KP!

oh wait

24. K07 - Mother 3 - Porky's Theme

It's getting almost impossible to rank these. Everything is so good.

23. H09 - Pokémon Diamond & Pearl - Team Galaxy Battle

Quite a kickass song for a Pokemon battle theme.

22. U04 - Sonic The Hedgehog III - Angel Island Zone

One of the best pieces of Sonic music I've ever heard.

21. U09 - Sonic Adventure 2 - Live And Learn

LOOKS LIKE YOU CAME BACK FOR MOOOOOOOOOORE

20. S04 - Metal Gear Solid II - Yell (Dead Cell)

The in-game version definitely sounds better. I'm not sure why.

19. D03 - Metroid - Ending Theme

Metroid music got the shaft overall, but this song is still awesome.

18. N02 - Animal Crossing - Go K.K. Rider!

*bows for Totakeke*

17. I07 - F-Zero X - White Land

Makes me want to play F-Zero GX again.

16. R12 - Golden Sun - Battle Theme Medley

Snubbed. Isaac. Time big!

15. A01 - Mushroomy Kingdom 1-1

One of the best renditions of the Mario theme, ever.

14. Q08 - Shin Onigashima

Guitaaaaaaaaaars!

13. C13 - Ocarina of Time - Gerudo Valley

Very awesome desert-ish arabian theme.

12. E01 - Yoshi's Story - Ending Theme

Even now, I'm surprised at how good this is. Most of the Yoshi music is meh to me.

11. H08 - Pokémon Diamond & Pearl - Dialga & Palkia Battle

Unlike YDC, this isn't nearly as good in-game.

10. J10 - Fire Emblem Path Of Radiance - Crimea Attacks

This game needed about 15 more FE songs. >_>

9. Q10 - Tetris - Type A

This was below Shin Onigashima before. Now it's not. Funny how that works.

8. B06 - Donkey Kong Country - Bramble Blast

I like this a lot more than the original, actually.

7. S02 - Metal Gear Solid - Encounter

Snake being in Brawl has become old news now, but remember when it was new? Best thing ever.

6. J09 - Fire Emblem Path Of Radiance - Black Knight Battle

Much less likely to lose limbs than a certain other Black Knight.

5. A09 - Luigi's Mansion - Theme

Luigi needs another game, damnit.

4. F02 - Kirby's Dreamland - King Dedede's Theme

And Kirby needs another console game.

3. C07 - Legend of Zelda - Tal Tal Heights

Tal Tal Heights is still incredible.

2. F07 - Kirby Super Star - Marx Battle Theme

My #1 surprise of the soundtrack is this. I really need to play KSS.

1. K01 - Mother 3 - Snowman

Whoever that person was that guessed it beforehand: You win.
