Well, this was... quite a round, if I do say so myself. We had 11 participants this round, which is not bad, though I was sorely missing a few members who certainly would’ve helped patch up the list of unguessed melodies... I had thought that the quiz was a little easier, but scores were overall a little lower this time (for most people, at least), perhaps because I didn’t include as many iconic melodies as I did last time...
 
Before I reveal the answers, I want to discuss one thing first that many people may not have picked up on: the theme of the quiz.
 
So what was the theme?
Snow.
 
Yes, that’s right. I always love the tracks that play in wintery settings. They evoke a sort of calm, peaceful mood... or in other tracks, an upbeat, Christmas-y feel as well.
 
All of you however, recognized at least one track that wasn’t related to snow or ice. With my quiz being themed around this one type of setting, I didn’t want to make it too easy for participants to be able to look up tracks that play in snowy or wintery locations and score a whole lot more. As a result, every melody number that was a multiple of 3 was a melody unrelated (or only tangentially related) to the theme.
 
Unfortunately, the majority of participants didn’t even recognize enough melodies to realize what I was trying to go for here. Only two made a note of it when submitting their answers (although it’s possible more of you noticed and didn’t mention it). It’s a little disappointing, I must say...

“Frozen Hillside" - Kirby Air Ride
 

Timestamp: 0:54
 
Also in: Super Smash Bros. Brawl, Super Smash Bros. for Wii U
 
The quiz starts off with a rather well-known Kirby track, or at least so I thought because it plays during the Subspace Emissary. As a result, a fair number of people got it. I am not disappointed. Not that disappointed, at least.

“Vanilla Lake” - Super Mario Kart
 

Timestamp: 0:00
 
Also in: Mario Kart: Super Circuit
 
I will say that Snow Land from Super Circuit was a very close contender for this spot in my quiz, but in the end I went with this one because we haven’t seen a Super Mario Kart melody in these quizzes before. All of the SNES courses appeared in Super Circuit as retro courses anyways, though that didn’t mean Dudeman was able to get this one...

“Kotake and Koume” / “Twinrova” - The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time
 

Timestamp: 0:12
 
Also in: The Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask
 
I’ll admit I was a little surprised that quite a few people got this one, as I hardly remember this one from the game myself (and I’ve played OoT quite a lot). But you all know Zelda music a lot better than I do.

“Snowpoint City” - Pokémon Diamond Version & Pearl Version
 

Timestamp: 0:59
 
At first I was planning to use Route 216, and then I thought to myself... “That’s too easy.” So I went and picked this one instead (which I didn’t even remember except for the first 10 seconds), and then I think I made it too hard. Oops. Although the lack of correct answers could easily be attributed to the fact that Insig and Lux didn’t participate this time...

“Snow Rise” - Paper Mario: Sticker Star
 

Timestamp: 0:20 (originally 0:04 and then I realized those were straight eighths)
 
Even if this game was otherwise, ah... lacking in some aspects, this theme is stellar and I’ve always loved it. It’s a shame Levi wasn’t around to participate...
 
I have played sticker star and it was utter, unredeemable garbage.

All of you regular competitors here that are Breath of the Wild fans missed this one. I’m disappointed in you all. But thankfully, someone swooped in near the end to light this one up red on the scoreboard. Congratulations to Zeila for being the only one to get this one correct! I suppose nobody else knows the true majesty of the flying noodles in the sky...

“Id (Hope)” - Fire Emblem Awakening
 

Timestamp: 0:28
 
Other accepted games: Fire Emblem: Fates
 
One of the more obscure ones on here, I added this one in to give the Fire Emblem fans a chance to redeem themselves. I suppose it’s good enough that one of them did. Although this melody isn’t very easy to hear in-game, the first five notes comprise the shared motif between all of the Id themes, so I figured it would at least hint to some people that it was from this game.

A track that I think is sometimes a little overlooked among the other great tracks in the soundtrack for this game. In no way, however, did that stop all of our Epic Yarn music fans from getting it.

“Hole in One” - Rhythm Heaven Fever
 

Timestamp: 0:30
 
Good ol’ Rhythm Heaven. I love this track. I should really play this game. Lux should have been here for this round. Oh, well.
 
I was considering using the melody at 0:38 but I thought that might have been a little too recognizable, so I toned it down a bit by using the part right before. It’s the same part as the snippet used in Remix 10, though, so it wasn’t that much harder.

Pretty cool track. I don’t know much about this game, though the fact that I’ve owned it on Virtual Console for more than half my life now should probably motivate me to play it sometime... Congratulations to Static for being the only one to get this one correct.

Holy crap. This is Shovel Knight, you guys. Shovel Knight. With how often it’s shown up on other people’s quizzes I thought y’all would get this one pretty darn quickly. Only one person got it in the end, and it took some time, too... Congratulations to Yug_Guy for being the only one to get this one correct.
 
I was trying to figure out where it was from, recalled that it was played with an 8-bit synthesizer and went, "Wait a minute, is that Shovel Knight?" About 2 minutes later, I had my answer

“Title Screen” - Super Mario Maker

This received quite a few more correct answers than I expected, especially given the lack of recognition of Wii U games on my past quizzes... *cough*3DWorld*cough* But it looks like this is a pretty popular game. It’s pretty awesome, I’ll give it that.

“Snowbelle City” - Pokémon X & Y
 

Timestamp: 0:38
 
I intentionally kept this excerpt short because it’s one of the most well-known tracks in the game. Fewer people than expected were able to get this one than I thought, or perhaps that’s just because of... the lack of Pokémon fans in this round.

Better than the EarthBound one I put on my last one, it seems. The fact that it has appeared in all three games of the series and in two Smash Bros. games probably helped, too.

Because every good melody quiz needs a song from Gen 5.
 
To compensate for last time, I purposely picked an easier track from the OST, though not one that was blatantly obvious. I happen to really love this track, by the way.

“Bramble Blast” - Super Smash Bros. Brawl
 

Timestamp: 0:47
 
High-Quality Rip (OST Version)
 
I like this remix a lot more than the original, actually. (Dudeman agrees.) Probably because of Brawl nostalgia. It’s pretty well-known since it plays during a whole level in the Subspace Emissary, though I transcribed one of the less distinct parts so that not everyone would be able to recognize it.

“Peppermint Palace” - Kirby and the Amazing Mirror
 

Timestamp: 0:47
 
The transcription for this one did get a little tricky because of those echoing notes, so I ended up writing the melody in a way that sounded the most natural and the least abrupt on playback. I don’t think it should have affected your recognition of it, though, since the melody and rhythm are rather distinct (especially the chord in that last measure). But darn. If only Levi were here...
 
...By the way, you remember how I picked that one track, Radish Ruins, for my quiz two rounds ago? Well, this happened not long afterwards:

A pretty memorable theme from this game. I always liked that part that I transcribed, especially that cool sixteenth note run. I will say that Rosalina’s Ice World and Ice Ice Outpost were also strong considerations for this spot. But I like this one the best.

A nice easy one near the end of the quiz to reward you for listening through the whole thing. I also accepted Dating Start!, which I totally forgot included this same melody until somebody actually submitted it as a guess. I was also hoping to catch someone who mixed it up with SAVE the World just for fun. It worked on one person. You know who you are.
