First off, I actually like the song.  My problem is why this song is overused so much.  This is a boss intro theme for crying out loud.  Does this song really bring out the essence of the Mega Man Legends games?  Does this song truly fit Mega Man Volnutt, Roll Caskett, and Tron?

Well, it does have the closest thing to a "major event/character" theme since most of the OST are either ambients, town/mission music, or Little Fugue in D Minor. But yeah, I'd kill to have some variant between Roll, Trigger, and Tron. Only problem is in that crossover canon, it's the trio that always hangs around. I mean, didin't she have a theme in MvC2? What about the rest of the Bonnes? Barrel? Who's he? They got friggin' Juno to end the arc in Namco X Capcom and purposefully skipped Legends 2 in PXZ, what the [parasitic bomb]? o~O

(Seeing a yuna/sera sprite in that style would be badass btw)

So its about ass now huh? EVEN THE ASS HAS 'EXCEEDED'!

One mention of LEGENDS and everyone goes batshit.  :\

Yep, every time when someone mentions that game people get energized for an apparent reason whatsoever. It's like this everywhere else, trust me.

It got really messy to find my sprite and comic topic, so it's in my sig.

Tron and Volnutt have that Yun and Yang thing, they both share the same theme but it is remixed differently. Volnutt's version is better

Volnutt


Tron


in case people want to hear the Yun and Yang differences

Best
Agreed.

Also, this


And this


And this


And...honestly, I could keep this going all day.  Sigma Zero X has a good point; yes, Flutter Vs. Gesellschaft is awesome, but there ARE other themes.

Legends 1 and 2 each have a good handful of memorable songs. Here are some of my top selections:

Legends
--------------


Some of the best 20 seconds of action music I've ever heard. Isn't that some hardcore [parasitic bomb]? I love it. And for the sake of brevity, the next five songs after this are great too:
Escape from the Tower
,
Hammul Doll Appearance
, the two cutscene tracks that aren't included in the OST, and
To Kattelox Island
.



Really good ominous theme for your first fight with Bon Bonne. I'd also include the earlier fight with Tron in her Ferdinand mech, but I couldn't find a video of it.



Aww yeah. [parasitic bomb] just got real.

Legends 2
----------------


In what are generally passable town themes, this one really stands proud and high with it's chest full of hair out.



This one's got a great rolling battle melody. Amidst the overly numerous remixes of Glyde's themes, this one takes the cake.



Worth reposting. This is the best song to come out of Legends 2.

Oh, and in TvC, where there are TWO VERSIONS OF THE GESELLSCHAFT STAGE, there is absolutely no excuse to not include this:



And also this sadly under-appreciated piece:


"Your pants are on fire."

Hello this sounds like Mega Man X4







OK I give up trying to find that bumbling Bonne theme from the very end of Legends 1. Someone else do it for me.

haha, it does sound like X4. Though the percussion is slightly different in sound to the kind used in X4
