Undertale, but it's a close one.

I love Transistor's soundtrack, but Battle Against a True Hero might be the best song on Undertale's soundtrack, a statement I don't just throw around.

Neither of these songs is my favorite from their respective games. In fact, I notice neither favorite made it in the bracket, nor did my own alternate nomination. I give a slight advantage to Battle Against a True Hero and settle in for an extended period of lamenting how lonely it is to have correct taste.

Really? Aside from Bongo's post, I'm not sure where you're getting that.

Haven't heard every song from Undertale, but this one's definitely not among my favorites. Plus Darren Korb is fantastic.

I appreciate Issun for giving me an opportunity to unleash as much as 50% of my full snob power

And my alt didn't make it in either, y'know.

Battle is the weaker of that character's themes, and lays on the Touhou just a bit too thick. Still a good track. Paper Boats.

I vote Undertale, but mostly because the opposing song belongs in the genre of "Videogame Song with Lyrics in a Language I Can Understand."

I was so close to nominating Amalgam as my alt but I thought that Undertale was being over-represented at the moment and there still wasn't any vintage follinpunk nominated yet. Sorry for letting you down. I'll try better next time.

How long is the actual Undertale song? The youtube video says extended and runs for 15 minutes.

The official soundtrack lists it as 2:37.

OK, in that case... Paper Boats.

(I'm surprised my main and alt both made it into the bracket. I think neither one has any hope.)

Paper Boats because while we will hear plenty of more retro sounding game music in this dome, this is probably the only instance of trip hop to be found.
