My votes will be for Thunder Force IV and Chrono Trigger.

I'm tallying the votes as we speak. I'll post the results in a few minutes!

Okay, the votes are all tallied! So, out of the six songs lucky enough to have made it to the finals, which managed to outdo all others and stand tall to face the credits?

In sixth place...with two votes, it's Streets of Rage 2!
In a tie for fourth place, with four votes each, we have Castlevania III and Ys I!
For third place with a resounding five votes, it's EarthBound!
In second place, it's Thunder Force IV with six votes!

And so, I am honored and privileged to be able to cast the crown to the champion of the Tyrant Time Endingdome with seven votes...

CHRONO TRIGGER! Congratulations SpponyBardOL, you are the EndingDome champion!

What a contest! It has been an absolute pleasure running this dome, and I want to thank everyone who was involved with the process. We had a bunch of great songs and I for one was introduced to several new tunes that I love now. So in conclusion...

My marriage was over before I started the Thunderdome

That was great, thanks for running it!

I waited a little too long to start submissions last time and that's why we got so few, so I think maybe we should start submissions Wednesday, if that works for everyone.

Thanks for running this!

I like how you made a banner for each match. That was a good touch.

Thanks for running a Thunderdome, something I could probably never manage. What has the winner won?

The satisfaction of knowing it has won this relative popularity contest - which is very important to abstract concepts like songs from video games.

That's great! This was my first Thunderdome to submit nominees, and it was a lot of fun. I'm with RT-55J, the banners were a nice touch. Thanks for running it!

Thanks everyone! I'm glad the banners were a hit. I wanted to do victory images all the way through but once I got my job I kinda ran out of steam midway through. But maybe next time I host a dome it'll be different. We'll see.
