Nintendo musical counterpoint?

(1/3) > >>

I have been looking for Nintendo songs that use counterpoint effectively and heavily. The songs that I have thought of so far are:
-Koopa's Theme (Super Mario 64)
-Ultimate Koopa (Super Mario 64)
-Waluigi Stadium/Wario Colosseum (Mario Kart: Double Dash!!)
-Mushroom Bridge/City (Mario Kart: Double Dash!!)
-Cave (SuperTux)
I would especially like to find a single game that uses a lot of counterpoint. Any help to find such songs would be greatly appreciated.
Thank you!

The first song that comes to mind whenever I hear the words "Nintendo counterpoint" is Cackletta's theme from the first Mario & Luigi game; good thing we have a transcription of it on the main NinSheetMusic website, and you can check the counterpoint of our transcription here!

Dang, that was a smooth response.

There’s a mini-fugue in the prologue of Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney - Trials and Tribulations.

Also, Pokémon Center from Pokémon Gold and Silver uses its three 8-bit voices in a really nice contrapuntal way.

These are great examples. I wouldn't turn down any more suggestions if anyone else finds something.

See, I'm really into this YouTuber, 8-Bit Music Theory. I would like to give him enough examples of counterpoint so that he could potentially devote an entire video to the subject of counterpoint.

Thank you all for your contributions!

And thank you to all the arrangers that make NinSheetMusic so great!
