    The pic for Doom 2 isn't from Doom 2, it's from the Ultimate Doom (ie Doom 1).. not to be picky or anything, just pointing that out. :}

    FF does have a few recurring themes (Battle of the Big Bridge). DQ normally has amazing but anemic soundtracks that are padded down by songs from earlier games. One thing that's cool is that the orchestra versions of the FF music has some micro-shoutouts to DQ's. For instance, the main theme of Final Fantasy actually has the (daaa) da-da-da-da da daaa from the Dragon Quest theme in the backgrround, and FF4's Theme of Love, in the 20020220 recording at least (I don't know about the others) actually has the opening notes of DQ5's theme of love in the background at about 3:45. And DQ4's soundtrack, though amazing, rips off two well known Christmas jingles in its town and Balloon themes. WTF?

    Learn something new every day. I didn't know about the Myth egg in Halo 3 (the same egg is in Halo 1 though). Awesome article.

    You forgot one, the Great Fairy music in LoZ and the map music for world 3 in SMB 3.

    Quite a few surprised me, but I know an odd leap of music. The Caves theme in Pokemon Snap is a remix of The Goddess Appears, the fairy's theme from Zelda: Link to the Past.

    Fantastic Article Beebop. The Halo thing seems a little more like an easter egg than ripping itself off, but that could be just me.

    the race/challenge music from mario 64/ocarina of time/ majora's mask is the same. the penguin race(mario galaxy, the mountaain with the penguins and the house), the races on epona(both majora's and ocarina's) are the same. it's just fan service probably

    totaka's song seems really interesting topic for wii/DS owners.
  • AntistaFartedOnMyMom - August 17, 2009 1:55 p.m.

    Loved this article. FFIV fan and Mario RPG are my number 2 and 3 rpgs, and loved that song. Just wondering though where the fuck do you find your soundtracks? That stack is crazy.

    In Link's Awakening DX U.S. Version, if you name yourself ZELDA in all Caps, you get some alternate music which i don't know what it is

    I swear I have heard Luigi whistle Totaka's song in Luigi's Mansion. Like if you walk around doing nothing for too long or something like that.

    Culex's theme from Mario RPG also appears in the Haunted Mansion boss fight (Big Boo) in Mario Pinball
