I'm actually sort of looking for help for this one.

Kirby Super Star Ultra's True Arena theme was extremely hard to transcribe completely accurately rhythm-wise--I doubt I got it 100% correct--and I've definitely omitted some accompaniment parts throughout and musical lines in Bars 2-9.

Kirby Super Star Ultra

The one time this song comes up in the Kirby Super Star Ultra OST, it's glued to the original Arena theme.

I mainly need input on whether I got the melody 100% correct and whether I need to reintroduce all the other accompaniment and Bars 2-9 musical lines. (If I do so, I'm changing their octave voicing--the E below low A sounds pretty ugly compared to the E below Middle C.)

In terms of looks, it looks pretty nice to me (I'll listen to it when I get home). Oh, and thank you for doing this one; I was waiting for someone to do either The Arena or the True Arena; I attempted the former, but the SNES chords were too tricky for me.

Oh, and I love the Prism Plains sheet! Loved the added ending to it, too.

Not really looking for help for this one, but given how popular and beloved it is, I'm not sure how I haven't seen piano sheet music for this one before (and the only set of guitar tabs I've found for it are inaccurate):

It's Simple Sight, the Castle Crashers Necromancer theme!


I throw in variations every time the verse or chorus returns. It gives the song more variety, IMO, but it makes it less strict of a transcription...

Not quite looking for help for this one, either, especially considering how much I had to edit it from the actual notes of the source material in order to make it playable in the first place:
It's "A Decisive Blow (StreetPass Arena)" from Shovel Knight!

Shovel Knight

Watch NSFPlay play this song:
(OK, you'll probably have to skip to 1:46:51 for "A Decisive Blow")


Jake Kaufman's complete Shovel Knight soundtrack source code is here: https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/56073318/Famitracker/Other%20Songs/Shovel_Knight_Music.nsf

Yup, I took the .nsf at Song 39, transcribed several channels' notes into Musescore, and omitted some other channels' notes.
...And this resulted in a mess that was impossible to play for solo piano. This sat around for years before I finally decided to make this more in the spirit of a Mozart symphony piano transcription (or a NinSheetMusic transcription, for that matter) and move some of the notes' octave voicings around.
Then, I trimmed some of the notes to make this easier to play.

The .nsf says that the C-D-E-F# run in Bar 15 is slightly rhythmically inaccurate, but my ears can't tell the difference reliably.
