Default Default - Bravely: The Video Game Herodome Nomination Thread


Hey, you guys are MY hero for letting me do this thread. The topic is Heroic Music in Video Games. I want you to nominate the best music and songs from video games that...

1. Sounds heroic to you.
2. Are tied to a particular hero in video games.
3. Maybe if you are clever about it, some third thing.

If you have any questions about what can count, ask me, but I want to be pretty open with this one. Just don't choose, say, Kefka's theme.

The following are previous winners who are disqualified from participating (when we get 64 of these, we should have them dome off).

Times Scar (Chrono Cross)
Tragic Prince (Castlevania: Symphony of the Night)
Clash on the Big Bridge (Final Fantasy V)
Kimera II (G Darius)
BGM 1 (Silver Surfer)
Underworld (Terranigma)
Emil Sacrifice (NieR)
We're Finally Cowboys (No More Heroes)
The First Campaign (Etrian Odyssey III)
Positive Force (VVVVVV)
Vacant Interference (Ys 7)
Potential for Anything (VVVVVV)
Introduction Theme (Wild ARMs)
Main Theme (Space Harrier)
Whirlwind (Shinobi 3)
Pleasure Quarter (Gravity Rush)
Gaur Plain (Xenoblade Chronicles)
Guile's Theme (Street Fighter II)
Creepy Forest (Plok)
Full Speed Ahead (Final Fantasy XIII 2)
An Underlying Problem (Shovel Knight)
Wicked Flight (Bravely Default)
Desert of Despair (Ys 7)
Downtown (Gravity Rush)
One Night in Neo Kobe City (Snatcher)
The Dreamwatch of Time (Chrono Cross)
Roller Mobster (Hotline Miami 2)
To Make the End of Battle (Ys 1 & II Chronicles)
Exclusive Coupe (Drift Stage)
Main Theme (Black Knight 2000)
Lava Zone ~ A Kiss from Eldeel (Ys IV: The Dawn of Ys)
Restoring the Light, Facing the Dark (Ori and the Blind Forest)
Ulala's Support Chant (Space Channel 5)
Tal Tal Heights (The Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening)
Battle with Magus (Chrono Trigger)
Intro Music (Mega Man 3)
Go Straight (Streets of Rage 2)
Battle 1 (Final Fantasy Mystic Quest)
To Far Away Times (Chrono Trigger)
Strange Memories of Death (Gimmick!)
Monty on the Run Theme (Monty on the Run)
The Muppet Show Theme
"Memorial of the Fallen Ones" (Demon's Crest)
You're A Mean One, Mr. Grinch
The First Noel
Snake Man (Megaman 3)


OK, is that clear? I feel like it is straightforward and open to interpretation (within reason)

Each person may nominate up to five pieces of music (for now. That may change), your first being guaranteed to make it in, and each subsequent track is more susceptible to culling should random.org need to come into the equation (yes, I did copy and paste this largely from the last nomination thread, with some editing). I may allow more tracks down the line, as I see fit (depending on how big this one is going to be). If you want to change a choice, do it in the post with your other themes. Please post a youtube/soundcloud/vimeo/etc. link to the themes rather than embedding them, so it isn't a nightmare for some people to get through the page.

The deadline is April 17th (10:59.99 PM Atlantic time) of THIS VERY YEAR. Time to fight for your right to do right so let's get to it!

Yeah, I love that soundtrack, I really should have thought of that one. But I guess it's in regardless, so it works out.

I'm thinking about a list, but I mostly want to curse how this thread keeps making me think a new Bravely game has been announced when it's on the forum preview.

Curse you, Issun.

Wait, what the fuck!? Johnny, what did you do to Issun?

I strongly considered it. I listened to five or six different versions of the theme and it was either the original NES one or the RCR one and I went with the one where they are actually heroes.

Snow might be a parody of a hero as a character but his theme sure isn't. Updated.

I am the only person who thinks that everyone nominating 4 or 5 songs is too many? I find it discourages me from wanting to nominate anything.

I'd say the real problem is if only your #1 will make for sure it you should be allowed to nominate someone else's 2-5 as your #1.

Though, yeah, the large number of nominations per person of recent thunderdomes has turned me off in general.

So there's no telling what the participation level in a given nomination thread will be, and a lot of the domes have had to have people have several noms to fill them out (there was only one dome ever that was able to get to 64 noms with one per person and that was 9 years ago). Problem is, if you start with two apiece, if you find you need more and have to keep adding them, then those who only check the thread once, post their noms, and then don't check back until the dome starts, some of them might have liked to add more, but they didn't know they could have.

I think WC and Johnny just starting with several and then whittling it down at the end gives people that chance.

That said, you can be the change you want to see in the world, which is to say "You can give it a try". I know that Bongo was trying to host "micro-domes" a while back (I wish he would again, I'm interested in seeing that happen) and a short dome with where you really have to think about what you want to pick could be fun.
