Man, I should have done this one; I would have gotten at least 5 correct.

Here are the answers to my latest quiz:

#1
"Choco Mountain"/"Choco Mountain & Battle Arenas (Block Fort & Double Deck)", from Mario Kart 64, used as a racetrack theme and a multiplayer battle stage theme
Timestamp: 0:00

I always thought this theme was a bundle of fun, and it seems some of you thought so, too.

"Necrofantasia", from Touhou Youyoumu ~ Perfect Cherry Blossom, used as Yukari's boss theme
Timestamp: 0:01

None of you got "Necrofantasia" the last time I put it in a Guess-That-Song Quiz, so this time, I picked its very first theme and hoped some of you would recognize it this time.

I mean, all those black MIDIs of it must make it famous or at least meme-tastic, right?

...Right?

...Well, at least someone recognized it this time....

#3
"Thundersnail", from Undertale, used as a minigame theme
Timestamp: 0:00

I thought the first 4 bars only would be too tricky, so I added the next 4 to this melody. At this point, I wasn't 100% sure which line was the melody, so I included both lines.

"Theme of a Tragedic Revenge"/"Theme of a Tragic Revenge", from NiGHTS: Journey of Dreams, used as one of Reala's boss themes
Timestamp: 0:15

Actually, all of Reala's boss themes sound pretty good in general, IMO.

I thought this melody's chromatic mediant leanings were distinctive enough to remember, so I put this melody in this quiz. Besides, I've heard two different arrangers remix this theme already....

"Bowser Castle", from Mario Kart: Super Circuit, used as a racetrack theme
Timestamp: 0:01

I first heard of this VGM theme when Jonny Atma released his GaMetal remix of it. I was surprised how much like generic heavy metal his remix sounded (I can normally tell that the original VGM themes aren't in the heavy metal genre).

"Super Ability"/"Bring On the Super Ability", from Kirby's Return to Dream Land, used as a power-up theme
Timestamp: 0:06

You can hear some E minor versions of this theme later in the game.

I can't believe I can't find whether GilvaSunner also ripped a video for this song. Is this version even in this game's OST?

"In the Halls of the Usurper (Pridemoor Keep)", from Shovel Knight, used as a stage theme
Timestamp: 0:15

This being one of the most famous Shovel Knight songs, I only used 4 bars' worth in this quiz.

#8
"Battle! Elite Four"/"Battle! (Elite Four)"/"Elite Four Battle", from Pokemon Black and Pokemon White, used as a boss theme
Timestamp: 0:15

This is one of the better Elite Four themes, IMO (put it this way--I played Pokemon Diamond and beat its Elite Four several times, some of them with the sound on, and I still can't remember their theme).

So yeah, I put it in a quiz since this melody is easier to transcribe than some other Pokemon songs I recognize.

"Boss Battle 1", from Chrono Trigger
Timestamp: 0:31

Yup, my melody was the last 4 bars of this theme. (OK, I saw a transcription where this was split into more than 4 bars.)

I find this theme rather dissonant, anyway, so I didn't want to transcribe too much of it. These bars are some of the most consonant in the entire theme....

#10
"The Master!"/"Master Battle", from Paper Mario, used as an optional boss theme
Timestamp: 0:14

The loop for this song is only 12 bars long, so I didn't want to transcribe any more than 4 bars for this quiz.

"Megaton Punch", from Kirby Super Star, used as a minigame theme
Timestamp: 0:21

I actually ripped this melody directly from an old (and somewhat thin-sounding) piano transcription of mine. Given how much better my less faithful piano arrangement of this song sounds, I currently doubt I'll ever submit that transcription to NinSheetMusic, though feel free to convince me otherwise...

The key signatures of this piece get confusing at times, and I'm tentative on whether this melody is actually in E flat major with minor-key leanings.

"Tango of the Troupple King", from Shovel Knight: Plague of Shadows
Timestamp: 0:09

Possibly the most famous song in Shovel Knight: Plague of Shadows, and it's a great one, too.

For those people who say this melody sounds rather like "Spin Ye Bottle" from the original Shovel Knight, I wonder who everyone in that series is taking their dancing lessons from....

Noticed that there is a small error in my arrangement of "End Credits" from Zelda: Twilight Princess: There's no "composed by" text. It only says "Toru Minegishi, Asuka Ohta & Koji Kondo" and not "Composed by Toru Minegishi, Asuka Ohta & Koji Kondo". A small formatting error that someone could fix.

Moved. I was thinking of moving the entire RH into bass clef, but I figured it would be better to stay treble.

So you know how I said there was going to be no hint system? I changed my mind.

THE HINT SYSTEM
Unlike my previous quizzes, you won't be able to ask for a single melody. Instead, you will pick five melodies that you haven't gotten correct yet, and I'll reply to you with the consoles of origin for those five games, in a randomized order. (See the earlier Console Count section for my rules on consoles of origin.)

Since this probably won't be enough to raise scores significantly, you'll still be seeing that easy version sometime later, where melodies will count for half-credit only.
