"Final Apple" from "We Know The Devilena"

Both close matches though! But I really do love just how low-key and somber Eternal Filena went with its final boss theme in contrast to its otherwise mostly MEGA-INTENSE battle themes in the rest of the game, and combined with the final boss's ghastly and tormented design in both of its forms, really made the whole encounter have a uniquely oppressive and eerie atmosphere, meaning that the game's climax still worked on an emotional level even if the actual plotting of the narrative had long gone completely off the rails for the game's final stretch.

(ALSO, do not be fooled by the song's labeling on youtube calling it 'Final Boss 1', this is the climactic final boss track, it plays through both forms! What the uploader calls 'Final Boss 2' is just what plays during a frivolous and inconsequential li'l impossible-to-lose story battle against a minor returning antagonist later on during the ending! It's...I just felt it was important for you to know that...)

(Eternal Filena rules)

(Really now, this is TOP-NOTCH horrible monstrosity sprite design)

Some hard battles today! I really had to struggle to decide the winners. A New Apple is very awesome synth horror, in the vein of Carpenter or Stranger Things or It Follows. Very wicked!
I liked the low key tone of Final Battle, but I had to give it to Bugs Bunny on this one.

The Winners: Godzilla stomps the competition and Mario RPG Geno Flashes a win.

So let's see what candy treats the winners get. I got a...



Delicious, and a good excuse to play this...



And for Bongo we have a...



You can put the label gourmet all you want, it's still a candy that gets by solely on Halloween colors and name recognition.

And now tonight's matches. First we have Issun with "The Chosen" from Eternal Darkness: Sanity's Requiem. Against that is LISA: The Joyful (sounds fun!) with "666 Chop Deluxe" as chosen by Deptford.



Then we go retro with Sarge's pick. "Transparent Obstacle" from Gauntlet IV against JOJ's pick, "Huanted Woods" from Diddy Kong Racing.



The Deadline is 11 PM ADT!

666 Kong Chop Deluxe

I usually like to say a few words about my nominations as they come up, but what can be said about 666 Kill Chop Deluxe that isn't already eloquently expressed by the song title itself and that spellbinding air-horn solo? In a setting where civilization has come undone, so too should a boss theme also feel like music that has come undone, and this song is the audio equivalent of a feral madman with stretches of lucidity regularly collapsing back into unreasoning violence, only for the next bout of short-lived lucidity to just as abruptly resume in the aftermath. And yet still, somehow, so few other songs explore the thematic potential of the air-horn.

The Winners: Godzilla stomps the competition and Mario RPG Geno Flashes a win.

So the first winner gets..



Enjoy, Issun, but remember that these days they are pretty toxic, amirite?


And Sarge gets...



You'll never have to brush your teeth again!*

*The American Dental Association does not approve this message.

Tonight, from Sonic Adventure 2, Muteki gives us "A Ghost's Pumpkin Soup", which may not be delicious as as a ghost has dead taste buds. Still, if someone offers you that, you got to try it. Then we have Mr. Sensible's Silent Hill pick "All". I thought he was just voting for the entire soundtrack, but it's a track called all.



Then it's falz vs. falz! Oh, cruelty! First is "Demon's Souls" from Demon's Souls against "Ululations from Beyond" from Final Fantasy XI.



The Deadline is 11 PM ADT!
