Default Equip Yourself with Robot Master Thunderdome Nominations



Welcome to the Robot Master Thunder Wool...er, Dome! Here Classic Mega Man Robot Masters will battle to determine who has the best theme of the entire run of Capcom's iconic Blue Bomber, from 1987's original to last year's Mega Man 11.

UPDATE: We don't have a lot of nominations yet, and I feel I may have perhaps overcomplicated the rules. So I'm removing the limitation on selecting a Robot Master being tied to one person. I'm also going to extend the deadline to February 2nd at midnight to give people a couple more days to formulate their rosters.

There are some rules:
1) This is CLASSIC Mega Man only. No X, Legends, Battle Network or Star Force tracks.
2) Eligible games include the following: Mega Man 1 - 11, Mega Man V (GB), Mega Man Powered Up! and Mega Man & Bass. However, no other tracks beyond the initial 6 - 8 Robot Master levels are allowed. Sorry Wily!
3) Remixes from other games are valid! So if you want to include Snake Man's track from Smash Bros. Ultimate, or Centaur Man's theme from The Power Battle, you absolutely can!
4) Fan remixes or official rearrangements are also fair game! However, please do not use medleys of various tracks a la The Minibosses' cover of Mega Man 2. If you want to nominate a section of such a track, for instance Air Man's section of the aforementioned medley, please use the following code to timestamp it [yt]CODE?start=#&end=#[/yt]. All you need to do is swap out the # signs and CODE with the right info and you'll be all set!
5) With all that in mind, you must pick ONE track to represent your Robot Master. So if you want to go classic NES synth, you can, or you can blaze some modern remix with lots of guitars and bass. Whatever floats your Rush Marine!
6) You may nominate SIX Robot Masters to represent your musical cosplay of Dr. Wily. These six will be yours throughout the tourney.
7) We will take as many submissions as will equate to a 32/64/96/128 bracket. The more the mega-er of course!
8) I knew I forgot something: please post your videos as links, not actual videos, to not Junk Man up the thread. Thanks!
9) Another thing I forgot: ties for identical Robot Master themes will go to the person who picked them first. So if two people vote for OG Wood Man, it'll go to whoever picked it first.

Nominations will remain open until February 2nd. That should give everyone plenty of time to decide their roster and rearrange as needed. I likely forgot something so please ask questions if there's any confusion.

Are we nominating Robot Masters or are we nominating their soundtracks?

Or is it both?

Because visual design and audio design are very different and my choices are going to drastically change if I have to take audio into consideration.

Issun - Sarge has Gemini Man higher on their list than you, so you'll need to pick another robot master. Thanks!

I some how thought this was one of those other things. Like our top 50s... As if we'd run three of those consecutively!?

So...

However, if someone picks the same Robot Master at a higher rank than you, they will get to keep it. So, if I were to nominate Snake Man at #3 and Ixo chose to do so at #2, Ixo will have Snake Man.
So if you want to keep it, move it up on your list.

Heh, it was my no. 1 at some point, but I moved things around. I'll swap it for something else eventually.

So I've taken a look at the total entries and we are at 62, two shy of a proper dome. So I'm going to allow two more entries to be added by anyone, even if you already have some. Just post below so I can make sure to catch it. Thanks!
