Okay, let's roll.

You all know the general rules by now I hope, make sure to bold your votes, rounds will take between 2-4 days maximum, and the rest will depend on whatever the topic will be! But once again, I will start by letting you guys vote on the topic, from my list of ideas. There aren't that many ideas with FFX, but I've included a few non-basic ones, some of which I'd have no choice but to ask for nominations.


-Bosses
-Monsters
-Monster SPECIES (like for X-2, I said there are so many of them already since it would make more sense than to have, say Behemoth and Behemoth King both in it, like each item will be a species like Behemoths, Lizards, Insects, Elementals, etc.)
-Arena Creations. I consider them to be on a very different level than bosses, and a completely different class.
-Music. FFX has a pretty awesome soundtrack. Of course I'd let you nominate.
-Skills. As in, abilities from the sphere grid. Probably not all of them though, would be a little awkward to include Fire, Fira, and Firaga. Maybe I'd let you nominate if I do that.
-Weapon/Armor TRAITS. Like, "Poisonstrike", "SOS Overdrive", etc.
-Characters (Including PCs, there are only 7)
-Locations
-Overdrive Modes... would that work?


Here are a few other ideas that might seem like a stretch, I might not want to do them just yet, but if you guys insist:

-Items. I'd be forced to let you guys nominate, though. It's just cause FFX has a lot of weird items that appear under the same menu as potions and Phoenix Down's, everything from in battle items, to spheres for the grid, to mix items, and maybe throw in a few key items.

-Blitzball players. Not necessarily based on how good they are in Blitzball, but also their personality as an NPC depending on what they say. Of course this would take a hell of a time cause I'd have to look up who exactly they are and what they say, but of course I'd tell you. It might take too long and be out of the question though, since most of you probably don't know them all by heart enough to nominate them I might just use all of them and look up details on each one.

-Overdrive skills. I don't know if I'd include them all, probably just randomly select them myself or have you guys make nominations. This would consist of some of Kimahri's Blue Magic skills, some of Rikku's 50something Mix results, some of the four overdrives that Tidus, Wakka, and Auron each have, some random Black Magic skills with "Fury" at the end (Death Fury, Demi Fury...) and Grand Summon would be independant (It wouldn't be like Fury like "Grand Summon Shiva", "Grand Summon Ifrit", cause that would be weird. Just Grand Summon, but multiple Furies). Yeah, I probably would not use every single one because there would be an extreme edge on Rikku. Gonna let you guys nominate if this happens.

-Weapons/Armor... well, they're kind of weird in this game, every character has the same amount of weapons and armor (Tidus's Brotherhood is an extra exception) based on the possible customizeable traits is what determines their name. It might not work... they're all the same, with different random creative names. If I ever do anything with weapons or armor, I'd have to do something special like restrict it to ones you pick up certain places, but that might be unfair. Or maybe just give you a whole list of all 500some of them (you'd be surprised at how many unheard of weird ones you'll see) and have you simply nominate based on names or ones you already know, hell unless you've studied a FAQ or have the guide and look at it a lot there are probably gonna be a lot of weird sounding names that you never heard of. And when the battles happen, of course I'd give details one what they actually are. I prefer the latter option of the two, but I'd kinda rather stay away from this topic altogether.

-If you guys think of something, feel free to suggest!



I'd prefer one of the above to start... preferrably not Bosses since that's what I'm doing in X-2 right now, but hopefully later... and either way I'll let you guys decide.

I vote for either Characters or Music.

But I'm down with whatever is chosen.

I'm just glad to see a FFX rumble without all the crap that the other one had :)

Good work Zak :)

Zak
05-01-2008, 05:52 AM
While we're at it I'll vote myself to do music. Has that been done for X before? I actually can imagine a certain one winning but I won't say which (but I will say it's not Suteki Da Ne I'm thinking of).

Agent0042
05-01-2008, 06:08 AM
I think music has been done for just about all of these before, if you dig deep enough. Most of them have been through various permutations and past incarnations, etc. Zak, as the new manager, you'll probably want to look back through the section and at least briefly familiarize yourself with the past editions.[


Weapon/Armor TRAITS -- yeah, that could be cool. I'll vote for that.


I don't want to see music right now, only because it seems to be cropping up in so many others right now.

So far we have:

Weapon/Armor Traits - 3
Overdrive Modes - 2
Blitzers - 1
Skills - 1

It'll be WA traits or Music... I'll let the next person decide.

Zak
05-01-2008, 08:37 PM
Sorry guys to double post... but anyway, I just did a bit of archive searching through the forum and the archives and looked up what's been done before, as Agent said.

Found three different Rumble threads, and... well, for FFX, music actually was the first thing done in the oldest rumble I could find back in 2004 and that's it. There was one even older that lasted two pages, but I wouldn't count it. But I think this one used less tracks than I plan to use. But at least this'll take shorter. Or about the same if I use 64 songs and wait a couple days between each battle.

Hope no one minds, but I think that's what I'm doing. I'll do WA traits next, this'll be at least easier to start and warm up with. The only other rumble doing music right now is VII... but you guys make nominations.

The soundtrack has 91 songs, I think I'll use 64 of them. Or 32, depending on how many get nominated, but I'd prefer 64. But don't worry, the rounds will be as short as my X-2 ones. You may nominate AS MANY as you want.

A couple notes though:

-I'm only gonna be using three Hymn of the Fayth tracks MAXIMUM if any at all. This includes "Warping to a Different Dimension".

-Refer to the tracks by their OST names and not their Music Sphere names. Like for instance "Hopeless Desire" is a song on the OST which in the Music Sphere is called "Out of the Frying Pan", and there are others like that... but I'd prefer calling it "Hopeless Desire" and same with other such tracks, use the OST name.


I'll also be making my own nominations.

For reference, here's a list of tracks.. hope there's no rule against linking here:

Agent0042
05-01-2008, 10:02 PM
Sorry, Zak, I was going by the titles I have listed, which may not all match the ones on that link you posted (which is why I tried to post alternate titles where possible. "The Sending" is, I believe, the piece that plays when Yuna dances the sending in Luca. I suppose it's just another version of the Hymn of the Fayth. "Decision on the Dock" is the name given in the album insert for track 1.16 on the International Version soundtrack album, which I own. I'm pretty sure it's the music that plays during the time when you're running around in Luca after it's revealed that Yuna has been kidnapped. I'll try to see if I can make a title match from that list later -- no time right now.


I'd also like to add Ending Theme, I Can Fly and The Summoning.

05-02-2008, 12:01 AM
Okay, "Decision on the Dock" is the same one as "Inflexible Determination."

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Final_Fantasy_X_albums#Albums -- this here has good title references. That http://bluelaguna.net/music/ffx/mp3s.php is using some of the alternate spellings you often see, such as "Joze Temple" and "Makalayna Forest."

Zak
05-02-2008, 02:45 AM
oooh and you can't forget the Via Purifico music. That is the most beautiful piece in the entire game!

"Path of Repentance" it's called.

Ah, Inflexible Determination I would have never guessed considering the million places it's played.

BTW Agent, just making sure, you know "Macalania Forest" isn't actually played in most of the forest for some reason? (Just saying in case you meant a different track)

Zak
05-02-2008, 04:05 AM
About to list what we have so far and make the nominations, but I just noticed another I didn't recognize, Agent, what's "Main Theme"? Tidus's Theme? Or Something else? (My guess is based on the fact that in FF7 "Main Theme" is the same as "Cloud's Theme".)
BTW I forgot to mention, "The Sending" you're thinking of in Kilika is called "Warping to a Different Dimension".

EDIT: I guess Main Theme can't be Tidus' Theme since you mentioned it in that same post... so what is it?

"Main Theme" is "Final Fantasy" -- it's the same tune you normally hear during the credits of most Final Fantasies -- example, in Final Fantasy IX, it immediately follows "Melodies of Life." On FFX, it's considered a bonus track because it isn't actually used in the game. At least, I think it is, but I can't find it anywhere on either of those lists, though I do have a copy of it. You can scrap it as a nomination if you want. In fact, that would probably be best.


I can't think of any I would nominate that haven't already been said except "Please Remember."

The Credits plays the orchestrated version of Suteki Da Ne. Check on Youtube...

And alright, I'll add "Please Remember"... isn't that a quote though? I mean, nothing wrong with that, so is "I Want to Tell You Everything", just making sure.

Agent0042
05-02-2008, 05:23 AM
No, I know the credits plays orchestrated Suteki da Ne, I said that "Main Theme" / "Final Fantasy" is the tune here during the credits of most FFs, but not this one.

12 more. I didn't count "Main Theme". But sure, why not, go for it. I doubt those that haven't gotten a chance wouldn't care since we probably said what most would have said.

EDIT: I think I'll add "Song of Prayer" for the sake of having at least one Hymn track and have it represent the hymn besides "Warping to a Different Dimension" since that one has unique parts. But try avoiding the aeon ones. Maybe include the "Spira" one, but that's it. So, 11 or 10 more.

Maybe I will include "Please Remember" or "I Would Like to Say Everything" just as a gag, or even "Fog Sea". But I won't count any of them yet. I'd rather leave it up to someone other than myself for now.

05-02-2008, 09:24 AM
Okay, here goes! Note, about those other four, I'm not leaving them to be a special surprise or anything, it's all been randomized, they'll turn up when they turn up.


So.

Round 1 - Battle 1

Welcome Elder Sage Mika - Listen Here (http://lamda.bluelaguna.net/ffxmusic/33%20-%20Welcome%20Elder%20Sage%20Mica.mp3)

A short parade-style theme, played during the annual ceremony in Luca when you first enter and Lord Mika and Lord Seymour make their grand entrance.

VS.

Seymour's Ambition - Listen Here (http://omikron.bluelaguna.net/ffxmusic/55%20-%20Seymour's%20Ambition.mp3)

One of a few variations of Seymour's Theme. A remix with a bit of a faster beat, with a bit of the idea that Seymour's cooking up something... and for those curious, it's played during the first battle with him in Macalania Temple, and during the scene where he threatens you on Mt. Gagazet (not that battle though) and actually speaks of his "Ambition".


This is an easy one for me, I'm gonna choose Seymour's Ambition because I always enjoy listening to it and I actually prefer it to Seymour's Theme.

I was gonna wait longer with these (if I can manage to hold out), but I might not need to considering the activity in the FFX forum compared to in X-2.

Seymour's Ambition 10-1 Welcome Elderly Sage Mika

Looks like Seymour's the superior Maester when it comes to music. Seymour's the superior Maester in general in my book, compared to Mika at least.

Round 1 - Battle 2

Silence Before the Storm - Listen Here (http://lamda.bluelaguna.net/ffxmusic/30%20-%20Silence%20Before%20the%20Storm.mp3)
A remarkably beautiful piece. Played in Kilika and Macalania Forests, Gagazet Cave, and Yojimbo's Cave. I guess the cave/forest music of X.

VS.

To the End of the Abyss - Listen Here (http://omikron.bluelaguna.net/ffxmusic/81%20-%20To%20the%20End%20of%20the%20Abyss.mp3)
Also an amazing piece. While played in the Omega Ruins, it's also the alternative Airship theme for certain points in the game, it and "Start" switch off a lot. This one's certainly better...


...But for the battle itself, I'd have to go with Silence Before the Storm. I could listen to that loop so many times, getting Kimahri's Sigil in the butterfly game never got boring thanks to this track. Honestly though against almost ANY other track, the Abyss would have gotten my vote, but... oh well, I'd rather lose that one early than Silence Before the Storm.

I have a prediction on how this one will turn out, but lets see.

Ah well, my pretiction was almost spot on, I figured it would be a 2-1 ratio. Silence Before the Storm takes it, though it's a shame for the Abyss to be out so early. Fair competition, though.


Round 1 - Battle 3

Hurry - Listen Here (http://omikron.bluelaguna.net/ffxmusic/06%20-%20Hurry!!.mp3)

FFX's default chase music. Pretty interesting compared to the "Hurry"/"Run" tracks in the other games. Played in places such as escaping from Zanarkand in the beginning, the blowing up of Home, and the Bevelle Highbridge chases. Also in the int'l version during the Dark Ifrit and Dark Yojimbo chases.

VS.

Hopeless Desire - Listen Here (http://delta.bluelaguna.net/ffxmusic/12%20-%20Hopeless%20Desire.mp3)

A beautiful suspenseful track, Uematsu might have been thinking "Greensleeves". I prefer this any day to Greensleeves, though. It's appearance in the game consists of scenes like when Tidus wakes up in the underwater ruins, when he's all alone on the ship at night after fighting Tros, and, best use of it ever IMO, in Macalania Temple after Yuna drops the sphere and runs away and everyone in the temple is in sort of a "what the heck" state.
Also labeled somewhere as "Out of the Frying Pan".

As for me, I'll be damned if Hopeless Desire doesn't win right now.

I also have to go for Hurry! But it's not to say I don't like Hopeless Desire. I thought that track suited the locations it was used in really well, particularly the Baaj Temple at the beginning of the game. The music really captures Tidus' sense of hopelessness in being totally lost in an alien world.

I guess yesterday I could already tell that "Hopeless Desire" pretty much described how I wanted this round to turn out. :p
Funny how true that is. I guess there is something to these chase tracks. But damn, I was hoping this one would make it further. I guess it really is living up to it's title.


Round 1 - Battle 4

Underground Activities - Listen Here (http://lamda.bluelaguna.net/ffxmusic/13%20-%20Underground%20Activities.mp3)

Also a suspenseful track played in situations when things are up to no good. Named for the scene when the Al Bhed attack you, and also in Luca when they kidnap Yuna and on the airship when it's infested with fiends. The Chocobo Eater also merits this for some reason as does Dark Ixion.

VS.

Yuna's Determination - Listen Here (http://delta.bluelaguna.net/ffxmusic/71%20-%20Yuna's%20Determination.mp3)

A more relaxing track, the theme of the Calm Lands. As for why they didn't just call it "Calm Lands" is because it's also played in that long sphere Yuna records and ends up throwing away later. But that's it, and you don't get to see it until after trekking through the Calm Lands anyway. A rather sweet and relaxing track, though, fitting both scenarios perfectly.


I'm going to go with Underground Activities though because I get more of a rise out of the suspenseful tracks, as beautiful as Yuna's Determination may be.

Yuna's Determination 7-5 Underground Activities

Really close battle, but despite my vote this time I kinda expected it to win. In fact I'm surprised Underground Activities got as many votes as it did, but it's clearly no match for the Calm Lands.

Next up - the battle of the Seymours! ...sort of.

Round 1 - Battle 5


My Father's Murderer - Listen Here (http://delta.bluelaguna.net/ffxmusic/69%20-%20My%20Father's%20Murderer.mp3)

Another remix of Seymour's Theme, suspenseful and monophonic. Only used once during the scene after the trial in Bevelle where Seymour plots with Kinoc and Mika about what he's gonna do with Yuna.

VS.

Seymour's Theme - Listen Here (http://delta.bluelaguna.net/ffxmusic/43%20-%20Seymour's%20Theme.mp3)

And here we have the original Seymour's Theme. Lucky to be facing one of it's few clones. Seems unfair, ne? Heh, I didn't decide on this, the randomizer did. Oh well, great track... Ambition made it a step ahead, only one of these will join it.
This lovely little track is first played when Seymour comes to support Operation Mi'hen, and later in his manor, in the Macalania cloister the first time, and finally when he kills Kinoc... OOPS SPOILER ALERT!


I'm gonna go with My Father's Murderer, it's more interesting and unique and I wish they played it more. Plus, like I said, Seymour's Ambition made it ahead one and I prefer it to Seymour's Theme anyway.

My Father's Murderer 6-5 Seymour's Theme

Dangerously close battle, but it looks like Seymour's Theme isn't making it. No worries though, there are at least three other similar Seymour tracks that still have a chance to hold it up there, this Jyscal track being one of them.


Now we have two more connected tracks, sort of.

Round 1 - Battle 6

Scorching Desert - Listen Here (http://delta.bluelaguna.net/ffxmusic/58%20-%20Scorching%20Desert.mp3)

For a desert theme, this is a pretty calm relaxing theme, especially that beautiful piano bit at the end. This is the overall theme of Bikanel Desert, which IMO ended up being more of a fun place than in seemed at first sight, what with all its secrets and places to level up and all.

VS.

Rikku's Theme - Listen Here (http://delta.bluelaguna.net/ffxmusic/48%20-%20Rikku's%20Theme.mp3)

Rikku's from the desert... anyway, for a character theme, let alone one as nice as this one, it sure went to waste in the game. This happy little theme was only during the scene where she rejoins at the Moonflow. It could have fit well a lot of other places for sure.

I need to think about this.

I like themes that are only used once usually, which is why I chose MFM for the last round. Besides exceptions like "Fog Sea".

But... Scorching Desert I feel is also good and should get more support, I almost keep forgetting about it myself. At least Rikku's Theme has all the popular remixes and piano arrangements, Scorching never left the OST.

Yep, everyone loves the character themes... I predict this one specifically will make it far. So long, Bikanel!


Round 1 - Battle 7

Wandering Flame - Listen Here (http://delta.bluelaguna.net/ffxmusic/77%20-%20Wandering%20Flame.mp3)

A very relaxing track... it manages to stay on same notes for a while and still be bearable and likable especially when it gets to the clarinets. It's played in most of the Tidus narration scenes, mostly for important events. My best interpretation of the title is he's telling the story around the campfire in Zanarkand and since it's an adventure they're like a "wandering flame". It's also permanently the track for the Farplane area in Guadosalaam, whenever you choose to visit it.

VS.

Jecht's Theme - Listen Here (http://delta.bluelaguna.net/ffxmusic/51%20-%20Jekut's%20Theme.mp3)

Uematsu going for some hardcore blues here... um... yeah. Another character theme, for probably one of the game's most interesting characters, for someone who's a semi villain it's quite a jump from all the Seymour themes. Played in most of the Jecht Spheres, and that's about it.

I had to trudge all of 400m or so back to my flat from the computer labs to get my headphones, but it was worth it.

Zak
05-14-2008, 08:36 PM
Heh, well it looks like miracles do happen... I never would have seen this winning from when it was posted! Anyway, thanks.

After an surprisingly close uphill battle, Jecht gets burnt alive in the "Wandering Flame" Hah... what.

So......... yeah. Nice fight.

Next up, it appears we have two more "similar" tracks. Seriously, whoever programmed this randomizer must have been a fan of Uematsu and rigged it to recognize names of FF tracks and put similar ones next to each other.

Hah... anyway here goes.

Round 1 - Battle 8

To Zanarkand - Listen Here (http://omikron.bluelaguna.net/ffxmusic/02%20-%20To%20Zanarkand.mp3)

Many consider this to be the track FFX is best known for, and it also happens to be a pretty popular track... can't blame them, I'm a huge piano person as well. But if there's any X track that's overplayed and overmixed and has most of the fanbase revolving around it, this is the one.
For those non-followers, this is NOT the music played IN Zanarkand, but the one played on the opening credits leading to the menu and the opening movie, and during the campfire scene when you actually get to Zanarkand. And... at the end of Home as well for some reason right before entering the summoner's sanctum.

VS.

Revealed Truth - Listen Here (http://delta.bluelaguna.net/ffxmusic/60%20-%20Revealed%20Truth.mp3)

Yes, part of it is a string dramatic version of the second half of "To Zanarkand", if you give it a few seconds. No better title could fit this track considering where it's used. Home - "WHAT?! Yuna's gonna die?!", Confronting Yunalesca ('nuff said), the scene in Yunalesca's room with Auron/Jecht/Braska, and the scene with Jecht after you beat him.

I'm gonna go with To Zanarkand, because having it lose in the first round is just wrong, at least to this.

Round 1 - Battle 9

Fantasy - Listen Here (http://delta.bluelaguna.net/ffxmusic/21%20-%20Fantasy.mp3)

This twinkly little theme was originally from the Besaid dream on the dock, but it was also used as the theme for the Macalania Lake area.

VS.

Warping to a Different Dimension - Listen Here (http://delta.bluelaguna.net/ffxmusic/29%20-%20Warping%20to%20a%20Different%20Dimension.mp3)

At first you'd probably ask yourself why they didn't just title this like one of the "Songs of Prayer", but if you listen about 10 seconds in, you'd see why, as this is more of a symphonized version of the hymn, along with that drum beat and all. And because it's specifically for the FMV of Yuna's sending in Kilika and nothing else.


Not a fan of all these hymns myself, but I gotta go with Warping to a Different Dimension. Thinking about it as a one-time FMV rather than one of the many hymn tracks kinda helps. And it's not like you have an overabundance of them, the only other one I included in this rumble was the original "Song of Prayer". Plus it's a bit better than Fantasy IMO.

Round 1 - Battle 10

Sight of Spira - Listen Here (http://delta.bluelaguna.net/ffxmusic/19%20-%20The%20Sight%20of%20Spira.mp3)

Cheery little village theme. I don't know if it's the game's stereo's fault or my ears, but until listening to it on that link, I never noticed the guitar version of the Zanarkand theme in the background, whenever I played the game in a place that played this, even after spending a long time there, I never noticed it. It's possible the stereo plays it really faint, or perhaps the game doesn't loop it all the way, anyone else have this problem? It's played in Besaid Village, Kilika, and for some reason the Thunder Plains Agency (instead of the usual Agency theme).

VS.

Those Who Come Closer - Listen Here (http://delta.bluelaguna.net/ffxmusic/57%20-%20Those%20Who%20Come%20Closer.mp3)

So next to a cheerful theme we have an intense upbeat chase theme. One of the more interesting chase tracks Square has given to us in a while. In terms of chases, though, it's only played when you're running away from Macalania Temple while the Guado chase you, either after the story event there or when you try to go back when you're a traitor. Besides there it's also played in the "Sea of Sorrow" part of inside Sin, and in the international version when you encounter those jerks in Besaid who summon Dark Valefor.


I definitely pick Those Who Come Closer, without a doubt. Besides the fact that I prefer upbeat themes, it may not be as musical, but I could listen to it for hours leveling up inside Sin and never get sick of up where the other one gets annoying fast. Also, I'll be pretty disappointed if after Hurry won (against Hopeless Desire nonetheless) this doesn't.

Wow, dangerously close battle there. Not just the score, but they actually took turns being ahead a few times. But anyway, naturally guitar music would win, I was actually surprised TWCC got as far as it did even though I like it better.

Moving on!

Round 1 - Battle 11

Otherworld - Listen Here (http://delta.bluelaguna.net/ffxmusic/05%20-%20Otherworld.mp3)

Another greatly commercialized track in this game. Refer to the description of this forum, "Uematsu taking a shot at the whole Rob Zombie thing". This rather.... unusual track was used as the final battle music for the final actual losable battle, with Jecht/Braska's Final Aeon. It's also at the very beginning in the prologue FMV of the game, before the whole storm thing starts. The Black Mages also did a version of this with a woman singing, which sounded rather interesting.

VS.

Crisis - Listen Here (http://delta.bluelaguna.net/ffxmusic/59%20-%20Crisis.mp3)

It may sound for the first few seconds like just a drum beat with a little whistling here and there, but it gets a little more suspenseful as it builds. It's played in Home, usually except there they have a guy shouting something in the background, something I've always wondered what it was, sounds like "an annoying chat" or some secret Al Bhed message... ne? haha. It's also played in other places like the first part of the Sinspawn Gui Battle, the encounter with the Al Bhed at Macalania Lake with the big tank thing, and that really long FMV where they blast into Sin with the airship. Also the international version uses it in the scene on Mushroom Rock Road where you encounter the Dark Magus Sisters.


I'm gonna go with Crisis since I like it and it'll probably lose. Hard choice though.

Go into the sand and the dust in the sky
Go now, there's no better plan than to do or to die
Free me pray to the faith in the face of the light
Feed me fill me with sin now get ready to fight

You know you will
You know you will
You know you know you know you know that you will
You know you know you know you know that you will

Fight fight fight
Fight fight fight
Fight fight fight

Hope dies and you wander
The otherworld it makes you
Dreams they rip asunder
The otherworld it hates you
Free now ride up on it
Up to the heights it takes you
Go on if you want it.
An otherworld awaits you

Mrm, sorry to interrupt, but "Eh voy adran!" doesn't translate to anything in English.

Avoy adran? I don't know, I'm not fluent in Al Behd. It's just a guesstimate.

Otherworld 10-6 Crisis

So, once again, the commercialized track which made it as far as the forum description proves to be more popular. Kudos to Crisis for making it as far as it did, though, didn't think it'd get more than 2 or 3 considering it's a bunch of noises, but looks like a lot of people seem to have that unique taste.

Round 1 - Battle 12

Song of Prayer - Listen Here (http://delta.bluelaguna.net/ffxmusic/20%20-%20Song%20of%20Prayer.mp3)

The original Hymn of the Fayth track, before all 10-some of those spinoffs. Just so you know, besides "Warping to a Different Dimension" (which doesn't really count as it's slightly different), this is the ONLY Hymn track I'm using in the rumble, so if you like the Hymn of the Fayth go with this one, regardless of which version it is. It's gonna represent it as a whole. But for the record, this original version plays in every temple entrance (except Macalania), in the Remiem Fayth Chamber, the scene where Seymour "saves" Luca, as well as the scene where he silently proposes to Yuna, and finally, after Operation Mi'hen.

VS.

Al Bhed Tribe's Chi - Listen Here (http://delta.bluelaguna.net/ffxmusic/15%20-%20Al%20Bhed%20Tribe's%20Chi.mp3)

This is only used once in the game, in the scene where you first meet Rikku on the ship at the very beginning. I had to listen to it again, to remind myself what it sounds like. Seems like a slowed down version of Rikku's Theme at some parts. As for the title if anyone can explain what "Chi" means, that'd be great. I just think of it as a character theme or an organization theme.


Al Bhed Tribe's Chi is my choice easily. It's nice, not too cheery, and I got sick of the Hymn tracks.

WOW! I swear before I counted I was CERTAIN Song of Prayer was ahead, especially since the last few votes were for it and just the one today broke it.
Anyway, looks like the hymn isn't so lucky this time... ah well, we've still got that Dimension track. But also, Rikku's (spinoff) theme wins again!

Round 1 - Battle 13

Shoopuf Riding - Listen Here (http://delta.bluelaguna.net/ffxmusic/47%20-%20Ciparf%20Riding.mp3)

A nice melodic theme only used once in the game as well, just when the title says. Rides ze shoopuf?? Um... nothing more for me to say except *insert random shoopuf joke here*.
How far will it go...

VS.

Inflexible Determination - Listen Here (http://delta.bluelaguna.net/ffxmusic/34%20-%20Inflexible%20Determination.mp3)

A more common track full of suspense, but slightly less melodic than its opponent. Agent you said it's sometimes referred to as "Decision on the Dock"? Why? The only places it's played are when you fight Kimahri, when Yuna goes missing in Luca (maybe they mean that), when you're preparing for a Blitzball game on the setup screen, on Mushroom Rock Road before Operation Mi'hen, and in the Zanarkand Dome.

I'm gonna go with Shoopuf Riding, I like upbeat tracks and suspenseful ones but this one deserves more recognition.

Don't know -- I'm not the one who makes those decisions. You'd have to ask the people who came up with the International Version soundtrack. :) Though I think the Luca thing you described may be the best explanation.

Round 1 - Battle 14

I can Fly - Listen Here (http://delta.bluelaguna.net/ffxmusic/65%20-%20I%20Can%20Fly.mp3)

Remember that scene where Yuna jumps off the Highbridge to have Valefor catch her? That's when this is used, and what it's named for... anyway, it seems boring at the beginning but it gets a lot more exciting later, sounding like a Kingdom Hearts mix. I guess a lot of people must have appreciated it considering it was nominated a few times.

VS.

Yuna's Theme - Listen Here (http://delta.bluelaguna.net/ffxmusic/27%20-%20Yuna's%20Theme.mp3)

Unlike "I Can Fly", this track seems to be more melodic at the start, and is also used many many times in this game unlike a lot of other character themes. Numerous times, such as when she packs her bags, before boarding the Liki (and then permanently on Besaid Beach, the famous "laughing scene", in the Macalania Forest Lake, before leaving Djose, upon entering Gagazet, and when she drops her goodbye sphere... yep, many times.


I gotta say Yuna's Theme since I don't quite get the appeal of "I Can Fly".

Looks like this was a no-brainer. Poor little "I Can Fly", seems to be getting the shaft here, but who can resist a character theme? BTW, to the person who said it was on the VIII soundtrack, I totally agree, it's SO "Fragments of Memories".

Round 1 - Battle 15

Auron's Theme - Listen Here (http://delta.bluelaguna.net/ffxmusic/38%20-%20Auron's%20Theme.mp3)

And here we have another character theme, one of the best ones around. If I'm not mistaken it went down in the general rumble. How great a character Auron is, that's another story, but I think this theme speaks for itself. It is played first when Auron is reunited in Luca as well as when he asks to become a guardian for Yuna, also in Zanarkand during the flashback with Jecht's request, and in "Auron's Sphere", and finally at the end when Yuna sends him.

VS.

Traveling Company - Listen Here (http://delta.bluelaguna.net/ffxmusic/41%20-%20Traveling%20Company.mp3)

The "Rin's Travel Agency" theme, except for some reason it's played in every agency but the Thunder Plains one which plays "Sight of Spira" instead. A lovely piano piece... it might seems odd to say this, but it kinda sounds more like the style of a lot of X-2 tracks! Must have been a bit of foreshadowing... maybe it's just me.


Me? Auron's Theme, hands down. I really like the other, though.

Ah well, piano themes don't always win, but this is another character theme victory! No worries, there are better piano themes coming up, especially one that I know some of you are waiting for coming soon...
Auron's Theme is great, and looks like it'll get a chance here unlike at the General Rumble where it went down.

Round 1 - Battle 16

Tidus' Theme - Listen Here (http://delta.bluelaguna.net/ffxmusic/04%20-%20Tidus'%20Theme.mp3)

I know... another character theme?! Tidus' Theme is a beautiful string song, and it's actually original and standalone for once and as it doesn't have a recurring melody in other tracks. It's played first at some point in Zanarkand Stadium before the game, and on the S.S. Winno all the time, and after Spherimorph when you get the first Jecht Sphere, and finally during the ending sequence around the fire.

VS.

Besaid Island - Listen Here (http://delta.bluelaguna.net/ffxmusic/18%20-%20Bisaido%20Island.mp3)

I won't need to say where it's played (unless it was used anywhere else which it wasn't). So another relatively catchy piano theme, which somehow made it onto the piano collections where it was sped up. Well, it's actually played everywhere but the village and the beach, which have other themes reserved for them, but still... nice catchy song.


I actually can't picture a prediction for how this round will turn out considering the level of both pieces. I've always been fond of Besaid Island, but not the I have high expectations for it to win.
