Day three. This song immediately popped into my head when Synthetk mentioned boss battle music. I was expecting it to occupy spot #1, but since it is in position 6, you can look forward to some pretty good things

#6 - Paper Mario and the Thousand Year Door - Doopliss Theme
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VkncFFBnUuA

And now the reason that I watched PMMM. Synthetk showed me this game and the next opportunity I got, I started and finished PMMM in two days. We never did encounter this boss in Greif Syndrome, though...

#5 - Grief Syndrome - Oktavia von Seckendorff Theme
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GcqkUCqvzg0
There was a longer video, but it started in the middle of the song, and I thought that was sacrilege, so the video is only ~1:30. And the image in the background gets kinda annoying after a while. Sorry about that.

Ok, I've just got to say that the Doopliss battle theme is amazing. I really wanted to put it on my list but, I was considering all Mario games of any type as the same series (for myself anyways, don't bother changing anything if that messes up your list) and as you saw yesterday I used Yoshi's Island which is technically Super Mario World 2. Still glad to see that song on one of the lists. Also, we never saw that boss in Grief Syndrome because you didn't die. It's a good thing though because I didn't know about that boss at that time and that could have potentially been major spoilers for you.

Time for day four of the list. These two today were both super difficult for me to choose one song for each of their respective series. The number four spot is from Touhou and well, my favorite song from Touhou can change very frequently. To solve the dilemma of which one I wanted to use on this list, I took the songs I liked the most which also sounded the most "boss fight-y" and then chose the theme which belonged to the character I liked most. So here it is, Yukari Yakumo's theme from PCB.

#4 - Touhou 7: Perfect Cherry Blossom - Necrofantasia
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2vjZ1SPAH6g

The number three spot on my list ended up going to Pokemon. Like Touhou, there are a ton of boss themes I could easily consider my favorite. The one that I always love listening to the most though, is the Kanto gym leader theme from the gen 2 games which is a more frantic, remixed version of the gen 1 theme. Of course for the list I'm going to use the version from the gen 2 remakes.

#3 - Pokemon Heart Gold & Soul Silver - Vs. Kanto Gym Leader

Actually, here's the original version too.

Day four. Let me start by replying to Synthetk. You did not mess up my list. I looked at it the same way that you did, and the Doopliss theme was my last Nintendo song anyway. And of course I would never let
die! What kind of inconsiderate tyrant do you take me for? Besides, you could have explained it away as only a game feature and I would have believed it.

Anyway, this next song is long. Like 9 minutes long. But the best part is the first 4 minutes. It is the song used in Little Big Planet when fighting the collector. It is a real classical song by Alexander Nevsky.

#4 - Little Big Planet - The Battle on the Ice
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=w9GH6sKt_qU

And now it is time for Uncharted. Among thieves to be exact. It didn't really sound like boss music, but I like the song itself. Just the tune to have playing while getting attacked by a large man holding a shotgun and more grenades than a shark has teeth.

#3 - Uncharted 2 Among Thieves - Broken Paradise

This is without doubts, the most incredible thing I've heard in a while. At least it's the most funny thing I've had the pleasure of hearing.

Alright, final day of this list. The number two slot goes to a game I very recently played for the first time, No More Heroes 2. There are so many boss fights in that game that are absolutely amazing. The song I chose for this list though, is the theme for one of the coolest bosses I have ever seen. What makes this boss so cool you ask? Well, she's a goth lolita who uses two guns that have scythes on their ends which can also be combined together into one big sniper rifle. For me, she was one of those bosses that you see and almost instantly know that they'll be one of your favorites. So here it is, the theme of the 4th ranked assassin Margaret Moonlight.

#2 - No More Heroes 2 - Philistine
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JNM5mFQ9siI
Also, here's my preferred version which is used in the Japanese version of the game

Finally number one. Nothing much needs to be said about this other than every single song in this game is amazing. You know what, since it's number one, I'll use a video that includes the opening cutscene for the fight as well. If you don't want to watch the cool cutscene then skip to the 2 minute mark.

#1 - Metal Gear Rising - The Only Thing I Know For Real
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oXRLoiD7G2k
and here's the kazoo version since Victoryfraud decided to post that

Day five. And so another list is taken down. I never realized just how few franchises I've played (that have bosses) until this list was made. I have lots of work to do.

Ok. It is my turn to post Touhou music. Ok, raise your hand if when you read Touh you knew it was Reisen's theme. Anyone? Anyone? Well, you were right.

#2 - Touhou: Phantasmagorica of Flower View (I think that was the title. I never did look it up.) - Lunatic Eyes ~ Invisible Full Moon
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9Z6W9dzJiW4

And number 1. I would love to give a cut scene from this fight, or a kazoo version, but they don't exist Oh well. The song itself is magical enough, it doesn't need any of that shallow crap! (Even though it isn't really shallow nor is it crap. I'm bitter.)

#1 - Klonoa 2 Lunatea's Veil - Cursed Leorina
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AJ_AKIDPElA
3:16 minute video, 2:51 minutes of music, 25 seconds of dead space (Not the game. Just dead space in the video).

This track should last forever. I just love how emotional some of Kenji Kawai's music sounds.

I wanted to post this, but I forgot and then left on a trip. Good job me. Victor seemed to quite like Uninstall (as did I) and I also liked this song by the same artist.
