What Is your top 5 favorite fortress Wily themes?

Post by Shadow444 » Tue Feb 18, 2020 8:15 pm

While waiting for 1.6 and going crazy with boredom, i wonder who has any of the most favorite themes of the fortress Wily of all the (official) Megaman games. What is your top 5 theme? (Dr. Cossack, Dark Man, Mr. X and King can also be called)
My top is:
5th place - MM11 - WIly Gear Stages (I wonder how epic it will sound in 1.6 release)
4th place - MM8 Wily Stage 3 (MMM)
3rd place - MM10 Wily Stage 1 (Not Silent Rain)
2nd place - MM7 Wily Stage 3 (MMM)
1st place - MM10 WIly Stage 3

Personally really like "Against the Pressure" from Mega Man 10, and waiting to use it in 1.6

1st: Mega Man: Powered Up - Wily Stage 1


2nd: Wily Stage 2 - Mega Man III (Gameboy)


3rd: Wily Tower Stage 4 - Mega Man: The Wily Wars (Wily Tower Mode)


4th: Cossack Stage 2 - Rockman 4 Complete Works


5th: Wily Stage 2 - Mega Man 9




Shoutout to Wily Stage 6 from Mega Man 2. I intentionally omitted it because it was too obvious that it would win, since its the single greatest piece of music to come from the entire series.

#5: Wily 1 - Mega Man 7
It sounds sinister and makes you feel like you're enduring the many dangers of Wily's castle. I love that electric guitar.

#4: Wily 4 - Mega Man 9
It's a jamming piece of music that sounds like the final stretch of the fortress.

#3: Wily 1 + 2 - Mega Man 3
Well composed and is easy on the ears and imo is a better track than Wily fortress 1 from Mega Man 2.

#2: Wily 1 - Mega Man 10
Beyond the first boss room is a cool music track that fits the aesthetic so nicely.

#1: Wily 5 + 6 - Mega Man 3
It's an awesome piece of music that fits as part of the final stretches of Mega Man 3 and makes you feel like you're ready to fight evil and end it for good.

1: MM10: Abandoned Memory & Silent Rain
-I just love this theme so much, and Silent Rain felt like a great build up for it.

2: MM2: Wily theme 1
-I mean, come on that is a classic

3: MM5: Wily stage
-this theme was dang good, I still have it on my work playlist.

4- MM3: Wily stage 2
-This being my favorite game, the second Wily theme definitely had something to it.

5-MM10: No turning back
-Holy crap, this was the stage that made me so freaking mad every time I did it. But the theme was really freaking good though.

In no order,

MM7 Wily 1
MM7 Wily 4
MM8 Wily 1
MM9 Wily 1
MM10 Wily 3

There's also MM8 Wily 2, only because the beginning reminds me of MMBN3 lol

This was a tough one and I ended up with a lot more tracks to consider than I thought. To that end, I'm actually making two lists - a top ten for MM1-11, and a top five for the Game Boy games. I also did not consider any remixed versions - only the originals. 'cause I don't want to be here all day comparing versions. Starting out with the "main" game list - and one honourable mention to Dark Man's Fortress stage theme, which actually was written on the list until I took a listen to what's #10 now.

10. RM&F King 1 - Belly of the Beast
So yeah I had kinda forgotten about this song but it's legit.

9. MM11 Wily's Gear Fortress
The latest addition to the series does have quite the good Wily song, I'll say.

8. MM7 Wily 3 - Walk the Invisible
I have things to say about Mega Man 7, but it did produce this sweet track. Wily 4 is also nice, but this one is really the best song in the game.

7. MM2 Wily 1/2
Yes, it might be overused and played to oblivion at this point... but there's a reason for that. It is a legit great song and deserves a place on the list.

6. MM3 Wily 1/2
Still, probably because said overuse, I do prefer the next game's opening Wily stage theme to it.

5. MM1 Wily 1/2
You know, I really thought I'd place this one under the last one, but upon a close relistening, I realized I do like this one better. Wily had a strong musical start.

4. MM10 Wily 1 - Abandoned Memory
A really nice followup to the somber outside theme.

3. MM9 Wily 2 - We're the Robots
Quite the peppy song, this. Very solid. Especially the "chorus".

2. MM10 Wily 2 - Against the Pressure
An extremely close second, here. Really rockin' beat that sets a great mood.

1. MM9 Wily 1 - Flash in the Dark
Just edging out Against the Pressure by, in my opinion, having an ever so slighty better opening, just going all out from the first note. Probably not just the best Fortress stage theme - but the best song in all of Mega Man Classic, period.

What I'm getting from this list is that hey, MM9 and 10 were on point with its Wily themes.

AND NOW FOR THE GAME BOY GAMES. Was a bit of a doozy. One honourable mention here too, for MMV Wily 1, which just missed making the list.

5. MMV Wily 2
I'm kinda running out of things to say. I like it. Plain and simple.

4. MMIV Wily's Fortress Stages
Now here's a song with a good intro.

3. MMIII Wily 2
It was one of RushJet1's remixes that really got my attention to this song, but the original version is actually quite the good song too.

2. MMI Wily Star
This was actually also kind of a close second. This song really sounds far too happy to be a Wily stage, but, hey.

1. MMI Wily Castle
I really like this melody. Probably the best song of all the Game Boy games.

I have a personal Top 5 favorite Wily Castle themes of my own... just wanna let it all out. :)

Number 5: Wily Castle 1 (Mega Man 2)
Given the iconic (and somewhat memetic) status, I see how this Wily Castle theme became so addicting to a lot of folks around here, including myself. This is the epitome of catchiness: the epic "Dudlu-dudlu-du" will never leave my brain as long as I live. :) You can always be pumped up for another battle with the pesky son-of-a-taint Wily. Oh... and thanks to Brent Black - aka Brentalfloss - for the most epic song ever!

Number 4: Wily Castle (Mega Man 5)
It feels a little bit somber, but still catchy nonetheless. I don't know what else to say about it.

Number 3: Wily Castle 2 (Mega Man 7)
Well... some folks may not like this theme that much, but I do. Am I the only one who feels that this particular Wily Castle theme is inspired by one of the musical masterpieces? Namely, a Michael Jackson song called Thriller? It has the suspense, it has the rhythm, it has the instruments I do really enjoy.

Number 2: We Are The Robots (Wily Castle 2, Mega Man 9)
For the 9th adventure through Wily's fortress, Mega Man gets quite the awesome tunes. The composition We Are the Robots holds a very special place in my heart. It doesn't try to pump me up that much, but I like it enough to really care. It is one of the masterpieces of Mega Man soundtracks.

And finally...
Number 1: Against The Pressure (Wily Castle 2, Mega Man 10)
The musical sense is pretty much different for anybody - this is what I had in mind when I rated this composition as my personal Number 1 of Wily Castle themes. Pumping you up? Check. Creating the perfect atmosphere? Check. Keeping you in suspense? Check. Having an overall enjoyability? Check-mate.
