    Cool The Official Final Fantasy VIII Rumble

    Because I really miss having one.

    Rules:


    • In each edition of the Rumble, a list of Final Fantasy VIII things that are related in some way (such as music pieces, FMVs, etc.) is compiled, sometimes by me, sometimes with the help of nominations.
    • Battles are held one-on-one in a series of round until things get down to one final battle, determining the winner for that edition of the Rumble.
    • In the first round, ties are broken this way --- whichever entrant was winning before the battle ended continues to the next round. In rounds after that, tie-breakers are based on the percentage of votes than an entrant received in past rounds.
    • Generally, each round is left open for 72 hours, but it might sometimes be more or less. The rumble is usually updated somewhere between 9 P.M. and 1 A.M. eastern time. Usually it won't go any longer except under special circumstances. If an entrant is winning by a blowout of six votes or more, I will end that battle as soon as I notice it and a new battle will immediately commence. This number may be adjusted based on the overall voting pattern.
    • Discussion is usually not allowed, however, you are encouraged to post your thoughts with your vote. This helps me to count the vote total without confusion. If you have any questions, please PM (private message) Agent0042.
    • You are asked to put your vote (only your vote, not any other included discussion) in bold, although this is not required. To bold your vote, put b within < > or [ ] before it and /b within < > or [ ] after it.



    Current Edition - Stay Tuned...


    Key:

    Boldface = Going on to the Next Round
    Italics = Currently Battling
    Strikethrough = Eliminated

    First Edition - Location Music Themes - The Castle
    Second Edition - Bosses - Diablos
    Third Edition - Greatest Moments - The Party Discovers Laguna is Alive/President of Esthar
    Fourth Edition - Locations - Ultimecia's Castle
    Fifth Edition - NPCs - Raine Loire



    I want to do either Location Music Themes or Notable Quotes for the first edition. Cast your votes one which you want to see!

    I would like to see Location Music Themes first.

    I missed having a FFVIII rumble too.

    Location Music!

    EDIT: Shit nevermind my comment, thought I was posting in the general rumble.

    Also, does "Location Music" imply music with a location in it's name? Or simply a set tune for a location?

    Thanks Neg for the banner!!

    I suppose maybe both might be doable. We'll have to see...

    All right, let's get this rolling! Here's what we have:

    Balamb Garden
    Breezy - Theme of Balamb
    Dance with the Balamb-fish - Theme of Dollet
    Timber Owls - Theme of the Timber Owls base
    Martial Law - Theme of Timber
    Galbadia Garden
    Under Her Control - Theme of Deling City
    Fragments of Memories - Theme of Winhill
    Jailed - Theme of the D-District Prison
    The Spy - Theme of the Missile Base
    Fisherman's Horizon
    Ami - Theme of Trabia Garden
    The Salt Flats - Theme of the Great Salt Lake
    Silence and Motion - Theme of Esthar
    Lunatic Pandora
    The Castle


    Perfect! That's 16. First battle...


    Breezy - Theme of Balamb (This light tune plays in certain other locations at time, but it is mainly used most of the time as the theme of the cozy village of Balamb.)

    vs.

    The Spy - Theme of the Missile Base (This music lends a sense of intrigue as Selphie and co. make their way through Galbadia's Missile Base.)

    The Spy... it'll probably lose, but it was unique and Breezy drove me crazy after a little. Plus I also associate The Spy with that little secret base gateway area between the Salt Lake and Esthar

    Nice rumble.

    Both aren't bad, but I'm going to have to go with Breezy.

    The Spy. As Zak said it probably will lose but the missile base is one of my favourite parts.

    Breezy. Even though it gets quite repetitive, it's just too good a tune to lose in this early stage.

    Breezy - 6
    The Spy - 3


    Next battle is...

    Timber Owls - Theme of the Timber Owls base (This quirky theme plays during the time you're on the train used for the Timber Owls's base.)

    vs.

    The Castle (Theme of Ultimecia Castle. This unusual theme could prove to be a dark horse contender...)

    All right then, keeping this quick...

    Timber Owls - 0
    The Castle - 6



    No love at all for "Timber Owls." Next battle is...


    Fragments of Memories - Theme of Winhill (This theme is kinda cutesy and nostalgic. It's played in certain key moments in the game, including during some flashback sequences and in the workshop at Shumi Village as a permanent theme if you complete all the sidequests there. But it also plays throughout the Laguna flashback in Winhill and I think during Squall's visits to Winhill as well.)

    vs.

    Silence and Motion - Theme of Esthar (This funky theme is a good fit for a technological city. I have no idea how far it will get, but I personally rather like it.)

    Gotta go with Fragments of Memories on this one, Agent.
