thanks bro

I believe the overall winner of the Stardew arena was Tropicala. Summer seemed to be the more popular category, as well.

Today's arena...

Mario Spinoff Credits

Mario Kart 64


Mario Tennis


Mario Kart: Double Dash!!


Super Mario RPG


Yoshi's Island


Super Mario Kart




OR....a write-in?

I didn't realize it until now but my god, you could throw Double Dash' credits song at the end of any anime and I really think it would be fine. Superior anime vibes bursting at the seams from that little jingle.

For that, I'm gonna have to give it up to Double Dash for versatility.

Feel like it could be a pokemon jingle also.

The Super Mario RPG credits theme is so far ahead of the others in terms of context and scope that it almost feels like it should be excluded from the category out of fairness.

^^you know, honestly, I was looking for a good video of that song, and I just gave up. But that’s a fantastic addition.

^I get what you mean, but it depends on what you’re into. It’s certainly the most involved and complex, but in terms of just pure raw anthemic greatness, my personal vote goes to Mario Kart 64. Simply because there’s no reason that a spinoff cartoon kart racing game should have a credits song anywhere NEAR that good

I like Yoshi's Island. Credits theme tend to get me right in the chest, and the best ones make you think about your journey to that point. That one just fits, you know.

I gotta go with Mario Kart 64. It's on a level of its own.

SMRPG and Mario Party are runners-up.

How could you leave off this masterpiece?



In all seriousness, gotta go with SMRPG even though I hadn't heard it before.

^Even if you haven’t played the game, the SMRPG entire ending sequence is worth watching:

Shimomura is such a great composer. I'm glad she's still scoring Mario RPGs.
