Cashwarrior1's Quiz!

This quiz has a few rules. Firstly, it's only one track per series, meaning there are 20 different series in this. I also cannot use pokemon music since I'm doing a pokemon themed quiz, so no pokemon (happy now?). Points will work the way I usually do them, if you guess the game title you get 1 point and if you guess the game and song title you get 2 points (a total of 40 points). Also, if you guess the game series, I will let you know if you are correct.

Hints:
You can use one of these two hints on all tracks (I don't know if the tracks are hard or not, so I'm being nice with hints). Since you can use a hint on every track, there's a hidden point counter. If anyone ties, the person who used less hints will win the tie (if the hint count ties then it'll just be a tie).

Remake? If you ask for the remake hint, I'll tell you if the game has a remake or not (re-releases don't count, the game has to be a "dx," "hd," etc.). If the game has a remake, that narrows your search down to games that got remakes.

New or Old? For this hint I'll tell you if the game is new or old based on its original release (I'm going by first thing I see on google btw). New games have been released within the last 5 years. Old games have been released 15 years or further. If it's between that, I'll say "neither new nor old."

In addition to getting these hints, I'll be announcing what series each track is from on Sunday, February 28th. The quiz ends on March 3rd, I'm hoping to get a lot of answers!

Welcome back, everyone, to...

The NSM PrettyFrequently Guess-That-Melody Quiz!

Once again, we had a pretty great turnout on this quiz! And unlike last time, our quizzers managed to recognize every single melody -- that's what I call a success. So without further ado, here are the answers!

The Answers
Normal Section


Melody #1
1. [WiiU] Yoshi's Woolly World - "Yarn Yoshi Takes Shape!"



Timestamp: 0:27



Quote[8:46 PM] ShyYoshiGuy: I've literally arranged #1

This theme was used in most of this game's trailers, so even if you haven't played this game, you've most likely heard this song. And what a fun one it is, too. Totaka's so good at what he does.

Melody #2
2. [GB] Metroid II: Return of Samus - "Ancient Chozo Ruins"



Timestamp: 0:00



Quote[9:32 PM] Dudeman: #2: Wow, this one's quirky. The weird jumps at the end sound familiar. Gives me GB Zelda vibes.

He was on the right track!

... hrmm. Two correct guesses. Well, that's better than that of my last Metroid melody.

Melody #3
3. [PS2] Final Fantasy X - "To Zanarkand"



Timestamp: 0:09



I need to apologize for this one; I forgot to add an 8va, so my transcription is an octave lower than it needs to be. Sorry about that!

Melody #4
4. [NES] Mega Man 2 - "Air Man Stage"



Timestamp: 0:38



Quote[9:32 PM] Dudeman: #4: NANKAI YATTEMO NANKAI YATTEMO AIRMAN GA TAO-SE-NA-I YOOOOOOOOO

Contrary to popular belief, Air Man is not hard; on normal mode, he dies with three hits from his weakness, and takes more damage from the Mega Buster than most other bosses. He's just nearly impossible to beat without taking damage at least once; the early Mega Man devs weren't too keen on playtesting.

Melody #5
5. [GEN] Sonic the Hedgehog - "Marble Zone"



Timestamp: 0:31



Quote[9:29 PM] BlueKirby: while looking for what i thought was 14 i accidentally found 5: marble zone from sonic 1

Quote[10:07 PM] Yug Guy: #5 - Labyrinth Zone from Sonic
[10:08 PM] LeviR.star: you're half right
[10:08 PM] Yug Guy: what do you mean
[10:08 PM] Yug Guy: i did an arrangement of this song
[10:08 PM] Yug Guy: wait
[10:08 PM] Yug Guy: my wires crossed
[10:08 PM] Yug Guy: it's Scrap Brain Zone
[10:09 PM] LeviR.star: you're still tangled
[10:09 PM] Yug Guy: dammit
[10:09 PM] Yug Guy: Marble Garden

Close enough. ^^

I'm relieved to see people know more Sonic songs aside from Green Hill Zone.

Melody #6
6. [SWITCH] Fire Emblem: Three Houses - "The Night of the Ball"



Timestamp: 1:12



Quote[9:07 PM] mastersuperfan: #6 is from FE3H... somewhere
[9:08 PM] mastersuperfan: is it Life at Garreg Mach Monastery
[9:08 PM] LeviR.star: no
[9:08 PM] mastersuperfan: bah
[9:08 PM] mastersuperfan: I'll find it at some point
[9:08 PM] mastersuperfan: ...could you at least pick a part that isn't the literal main theme
[9:08 PM] LeviR.star: what?
[9:08 PM] mastersuperfan: #6
[9:08 PM] mastersuperfan: the part you picked
[9:09 PM] mastersuperfan: that's the FE3H leitmotif that appears in like 80% of the OST
[9:09 PM] LeviR.star: well how was i supposed to know
[9:09 PM] mastersuperfan: well if you didn't know, you could always accept anything else with the motif in it in the same key?
[9:09 PM] LeviR.star: it's in the same key?
[9:09 PM] mastersuperfan: yes
[9:10 PM] LeviR.star: fck
[9:10 PM] LeviR.star: that's it
[9:10 PM] LeviR.star: no more FE
[9:10 PM] mastersuperfan: it's in the same key for most of the time it appears in the OST
[9:10 PM] LeviR.star: i give up
[9:10 PM] mastersuperfan: Life at Garreg Mach Monastery is the exact same tempo too
[9:11 PM] LeviR.star: the night of the ball is the track i chose
[9:11 PM] mastersuperfan: ah
[9:11 PM] LeviR.star: if they're so similar
[9:11 PM] LeviR.star: what's the point of calling it a "new track"
[9:11 PM] mastersuperfan: well the rest of the Night of the Ball is not the main motif
[9:11 PM] mastersuperfan: you just happened to pick the one part that was
[9:11 PM] LeviR.star: not a FE fan
[9:11 PM] LeviR.star: and at this point, that's not changing

Apologies for this one, too! Apparently, it uses the motif heard in lots of other songs, notably, "Life at Garreg Mach Monastery". This is what I get for not knowing Fire Emblem music.

-- but my man Dudeman still recognized this specific track, so he gets an extra half of a point!

Melody #7
7. [DS] The Legend of Zelda: Spirit Tracks - "Realm Overworld"



Timestamp: 0:06



Never played this game, but it sounded like a nice track. And it came out of the DS era, so I was sure plenty of people knew it. (They did.)

Melody #8
8. [N64] Super Smash Bros. - "Bonus Game"



Timestamp: 0:04



Quote[10:12 PM] Yug Guy: oh, #8 is from Smash Bros 64
[10:12 PM] Yug Guy: training mode?
[10:12 PM] LeviR.star: maybe that too? idk, but it's the break the targets theme
[10:13 PM] LeviR.star: bonus game
[10:13 PM] Yug Guy: okay, i just checked & training mode is a different skong
[10:13 PM] LeviR.star: i'll still give it to you

Get out of here with that "Break the Targets" garbo from Melee -- this is where it's at.

Melody #9
9. [ARCADE] Haunted Castle - "Can't Wait Until Night"

Did I put this single Castlevania melody in here to keep Atcero happy? Well, yes, buuuuut this song's also in Smash, so ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Melody #10
10. [SNES] Kirby Super Star - "Grape Garden"



Timestamp: 0:32



Quote[2:27 PM] mastersuperfan: might look for #9, dunno if I'll look for #10 because I don't have the slightest clue where to look
[2:27 PM] mastersuperfan: sounds like a recent game though
[2:27 PM] mastersuperfan: although if it's Star Allies I wouldn't know it

Quote[10:20 PM] Radiak488417: 10 is """"grape garden""""

Quote[6:14 PM] Atcero: shiiit
[6:15 PM] Atcero: bro
[6:15 PM] Atcero: Grape Garden?
[6:16 PM] Atcero: bruhhh
[6:16 PM] Atcero: youre not gonna fucking believe this
[6:16 PM] Atcero: I OPENED UP THE OST AND IT WAS ON GRAPE GARDEN LOL
[6:16 PM] Atcero: like im not shitting you it was already on the song from the LAST time i had to look up this song
[6:17 PM] Atcero: but thank you

I think Radiak said it best. Thanks to a single line of dialogue and GilvaSunner's lack of context, the whole Internet's got this song confused with another one, which is actually played in Grape Gardens. But look at it this way: it was either this, or "Orange Ocean". There's no real way to win here.

Melody #11
11. [GBC] Pokémon Crystal Version - "Eusine's Theme"



Timestamp: 0:07



Quote[9:32 PM] Dudeman: #11: This one also sounds familiar. I'm getting the vaguest amount of Sonic vibes from it, but I'm pretty sure that's not it. Also part of me thinks it's from a Mega Man fangame like Unlimited, but that can't be it...right?

Quote[9:16 PM] mastersuperfan: #11 sounds like Mega Man lol

Yep, you guys fell for it. The ol' "song-that-sounds-like-Mega-Man-but-isn't" trick. This was also a good way to get a console rep for the Game Boy Color.

Melody #12
12. [PC] Yume Nikki - "(Working... please wait...)"



Timestamp: 0:00



Quote[10:17 PM] Yug Guy: oh you sly dog
[10:17 PM] Yug Guy: #12 - Save Theme from Yume Nikki

I always knew Yume Nikki was a niche game, but apparently it's less popular around here than I thought. In hindsight, I should've swapped this melody with #15 over in the obscure section. Good thing Yug had my back.

Melody #13
13. [Wii] Wii Music - "Main Theme"



Timestamp: 0:01



Quote[9:32 PM] Dudeman: #13: Main Theme - Nintendo's E3 Presentation 2008 Wii Music (I actually had this game, once upon a time. Barely played it. Shit's bad, yo.)

Quote[3:52 AM] Trasdegi: WOW
[3:52 AM] Trasdegi: 13 is the only one I have xD
[3:53 AM] Trasdegi: It's wii music

Quote[7:57 PM] Whoppybones: Found this by complete accident. A jazz arrangement of the song was on my Youtube recommended page. Thank you, YouTube algorithm!

Thank God people know this song. This game was partially responsible for me getting involved with music as a kid, and I still enjoy playing it with my sibs to this day.

Quote[9:23 PM] mastersuperfan: what in the world is on this quiz that you put DSi shop at #15

Yeah, yeah, guys, I get it. This melody didn't belong in the obscure section like I thought it did. It's at least relieving to know time hasn't forgotten this gem.

This one's rather tricky, since this section is pretty far into the song and not as distinctive as the rest of the melody. Coincidentally, insaneintherain released a cover of this theme shortly after I posted my quiz :P

A bit of history: when School Days was broadcasting, a murder quite similar to some events in the last episode actually happened a few days before its airing. So it was cancelled, 30min of norvegian boats pictures with classical music were broadcasted instead, and obviously, this became a meme.

Of course, this is Air on the G String. And unfortunately, I didn't know there was actually an anime based completely on it... Sorry MSF! I'll still give you your 0.20 points for G Senjou no Maou :p

Dekkadeci's Quiz

Shucks, upon reflection, this quiz was tougher than I thought - I originally anticipated one melody possibly having no correct answerers, but I didn't anticipate another melody having only 1 correct answerer.

#1
"Vellumental Battle" – Paper Mario: The Origami King

Timestamp: 0:00
YouTube Link

The Vellumental Battle (Thinking) theme also counts!

This theme's opening riff hooked me right off the bat. The rest of the theme is worse, IMO (except when the riff comes back), but that experience was enough to convince me that all you need of this theme for this quiz is the first 2 measures.

I was going to transcribe the drums for this as drum beats for this quiz, but then I tried transcribing Melody #2 and figured I'd hold all my melodies to the same standard.
[close]

#2
"'Friends and the Sound of Those Crossing Blades'/友と交わるその剣の音" – Kirby Star Allies

Timestamp: 0:43
YouTube Link

Just mentioning that this is Meta Knight's theme from Kirby Star Allies also counts.

Yes, I leaned into the above by quoting the one portion of Meta Knight's new theme that quotes his old theme. I honestly thought that people would pick up on that. My large hint for this melody leaned towards that, too (namely the similarity of Meta Knight's theme to Ridley's theme).

Don't you hate it when the only official name for a theme is in Japanese, and you can't completely trust any of the fan translations?

To my shock, only one person got this correct, despite Meta Knight being a popular character with music that is often in demand. Remind me that Kirby Star Allies music is considerably harder than I keep anticipating it to be - the last time I tried music from that game in a quiz, nobody got it correct, even though I picked what I still suspect is the most popular theme in that game - Hyness's Phase 2 boss theme. (I suppose it's a sign that I keep forgetting the Friendly Field theme when I remember the Stage 1 themes of the previous 3 main-series Kirby games.)
[close]

#3
"Onslaught" – Final Fantasy Brave Exvius

Timestamp: 1:12
YouTube Link

Mentioning that this is the regular boss theme from Final Fantasy Brave Exvius also counts.

Note that the timestamped portion I actually used sounds very similar to the opening riff at 0:00 except it doesn't slow down at the end.

Oddly, I first heard about this theme from Meinl Cymbals's YouTube channel. It rocks, though!

I've otherwise never heard about Final Fantasy Brave Exvius's music, though, even though I've heard about that game more often, so I figured this was the hardest melody in this quiz - one that had a fair chance of nobody getting it correct. ...And nobody got it correct.
[close]

#4
"Those Who Stand Against Our Path" – Xenoblade Chronicles 2

Timestamp: 0:00
YouTube Link

You gotta love the tritones in this initial melody.

I anticipated this being one of the easier melodies in this quiz, and I was correct. I didn't fully anticipate this one being the melody that the most people got correct, though.

It's coincidence that this is the same riff repeated twice - whenever I sing this theme, I always sing the 4th measure differently from the version I notated.
[close]

#5
"The Darkest Lord (First Phase)/Battle (Ultra Demon Lord)" – Miitopia

Timestamp: 1:03
YouTube Link

It does seem that people keep forgetting there's a Phase 2 to this final boss, so I also took "Darkest Lord" only.

I was debating using another obscure melody for this quiz, this time one I've transcribed for piano earlier, but then I figured I'd rather not risk making this quiz too difficult and reused the Darkest Lord Phase 1 theme instead.

Yes, I purposefully picked this melody (which I didn't use the last time I picked this theme) because it involves the same riff four times in a row. Actually, the original theme kinda makes that eight times in a row.

To my surprise, I don't think this has even been used before. I put this one first because I thought it would be easiest and most obvious (arguably THE most iconic track from Majora's Mask?), but based on the number of guesses, that was clearly not the case.

A fun, chiptune-y melody from NSMB. Somehow accidentally gave(?) MSF his 50th point with this one.

QuoteRadiak488417: oh you don't have 2
Radiak488417: i forgot
mastersuperfan: where?
Radiak488417: on mine
mastersuperfan: oh
mastersuperfan: that one's not familiar at all
Radiak488417: interesting
mastersuperfan: Jake, Latios, Levi, and Static? that's an interesting combination...
mastersuperfan: the only intersection I can think of between them is Mario honestly
mastersuperfan: well
mastersuperfan: it's very distinctive
mastersuperfan: I do have an idea...
mastersuperfan: wait
mastersuperfan: AHA
mastersuperfan: IT'S THE BEACH THEME FROM NSMB
Radiak488417: LOL NICE

Yet another Kirby track without a proper name. Maybe I should make this a tradition?

Quotemastersuperfan: #3 is that one Kirby thing from something somewhere
mastersuperfan: it goes like
mastersuperfan: doo doo doo dodo doo dodoo doo
mastersuperfan: doo doo doo dodo doo dodoo doo (but lower pitch)

"Route 12" – Pokémon Black & White

Timestamp: 0:23

This one was far too hard, I mainly put it in as an attempt to make Latios miss a Pokémon track. Sadly, it wasn't meant to be...

QuoteLatios: let's see
Latios: route 12?
Radiak488417: yes
Latios: woot
Radiak488417: good job
Radiak488417: was thinking you were gonna miss it
Latios: nah

I was hoping to trip some people up with this one, and it worked. 2 people got it with no problem though.

QuoteCashwarrior1: jeez number 5 is making me angr
Radiak488417: lol
Cashwarrior1: because it's melee's theme but the rhythm throws it off
Radiak488417: mission accomplished

Trasdegi's Quiz

Alright, this one was intended to be sorted from hardest to easiest, and it semi-worked out I guess?

#1
"Musical "Carnival Pokémon"" - Pokémon Black/White

Timestamp: 0:54
YouTube Link

A devilish melody to use, like #1 in cash's last quiz. He was the only one to get it, but I'm quite happy he did.
[close]

#2
"Circles" – Osu!

Timestamp: 0:54

This one rang a few bells here and there, but nobody actually found it...
[close]

#3
"World 5" – New Super Mario Bros

Timestamp: 0:05

This one ended up being the most guessed melody of the quiz, and I'm glad so many people remember this game!
[close]

#4
"Canalave City (Day)" – Pokémon Diamond/Pearl/Platinum

Timestamp: 0:05

With 16 quizmakers and 80 melodies, some overlap was bound to happen :p

#5

Seems like this one wasn't so distinctive as I thought...

WaluigiTime64's Quiz

WaluigiTime64 here.

Instead of following instructions, I chose to make my potluck entry not easy. It's not terribly hard either though, with each melody being very notable for each series/circle. The difficulty comes in how distinct and unrelated most of these are.

#1
"Thwomp Ruins" – Mario Kart 8

Timestamp: 0:20
YouTube Link

That being said, this was the only one I didn't design in that way. It's just my typical Mario Kart representation, complete with tricky section to mess with people.
[close]

#2
"Stage 1 Theme (Main Theme)" – Super Mario Land 3: Wario Land

Timestamp: 0:03
YouTube Link

It's the main theme of the first two Wario Land games (like in Super Mario Land 2, this means that it's the motif you hear in almost every stage), so if you missed it, it also means you're missing out on the first two Wario Land games. Get on that.
[close]

#3
"Doll Judgement ~ The Girl Who Played With People's Shapes" – Touhou 7: Perfect Cherry Blossom

Timestamp: 1:02
YouTube Link

Expected Touhou Project representation, though only one person got it. I picked this track (and this specific part of the track) to reference a particularly well-known remix.
[close]

#4
"Corruption" – Terraria

Timestamp: 0:10
YouTube Link

I keep forgetting just how successful this game is. It's very likely within the top 20 best-selling games of all time, and I know there's always a couple of people around who have played it, but no one seems mention it at all outside of dedicated Terraria discussion forums/chats.
This is also just very catchy.

Weakforced's Quiz

First quiz; open to criticism :)

#1
"Welcome to Crocodile Isle" – [SNES] Donkey Kong Country 2: Diddy's Kong Quest

Timestamp: 0:04
YouTube Link

I love the Donkey Kong Country games but I've never played this one. I know the first seconds of the track from watching speedruns of the game on stream, so it was fun to hear the rest.
[close]

#2
"Yoshi's Song" – [N64] Yoshi's Story

Timestamp: 0:25
YouTube Link

This one was the most guessed on my quiz likely because it's in Smash Bros. Yoshi's Story is full of similar-sounding tracks so getting the title took some poking around for most guessers.
[close]

#3
"Revali's Theme" – [WiiU/SW] The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild

Timestamp: 0:09
YouTube Link

I haven't played Breath of the Wild yet so I phoned a friend who said this one would be recognizable and I enjoyed the tune. It was guessed by a good number of people as well.
[close]

#4
"Peach Gardens" – [NDS] Mario Kart DS

Timestamp: 0:09
YouTube Link

This is one of my very favorites from the Mario Kart series, which is saying a lot when compared to some of the newer live-recorded soundtrack. A few people initially guessed Delfino Plaza, which makes sense.
[close]

#5
"Twinleaf Town" – [NDS] Pokemon Diamond/Pearl/Platinum

Timestamp: 0:00
YouTube Link

When I was making the quiz I heard about the new remakes for Diamond and Pearl so I decided to pull one from here. I didn't play any of the games from the Sinnoh region but this track sounds nostalgia-inducing.

Whoppy's Quiz

Tbh, I'm kind of surprised that so few of you knew these songs.

#1
"Big Rock Finish" – Rhythm Heaven

I was expecting this song to be much harder than the other ones.
[close]

#2
"The Lumpy Pumpkin" – The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword

Timestamp: 1:05

Only msf got this one? Seriously? I guess I DID choose a more obscure part...
[close]

#3
"Staff Roll" – Super Mario Galaxy 2

Timestamp: 2:24

The specific key signature was a little cheap, but I believe that everyone who guessed an SMG2 song got it eventually.

#4
"Mt. Koltz" – Final Fantasy VI

Timestamp: 0:07

It's funny how during the results of Levi's quiz, I was so upset with people for trash talking FF6, but almost no one even bothered to search that OST.

#5
"Phendrana Drifts (Deep Lake Area)" – Metroid Prime

heyo, its bricks

Made another weeb quiz today: [BRAIX'S WEEB MELODY QUIZ part 2]

Took a different approach from last time, since a lot of the melodies went unguessed on my first quiz:
  • With the exception of like two of them, I was introduced to these melodies outside of the context of the anime itself (covers, background music, compilations, memes, vtubers, etc).
    • Figured this way, i can ensure that they're probably more widely known outside of the genre(s) i watch.
    • I've included some music I personally know to just be normal j-pop, but I wouldn't be surprised if those songs are actually OPs/EDs of some anime I didn't watch
  • each melody is 8 bars long, rather than four
    • My goal isn't to trip people up, so hopefully if you know the melody you'll be able to recognize it from what I wrote
    • Tried to choose obvious sections of each song. again, not trying to trick anyone here
  • I'll be giving out hints liberally (to a reasonable extent), just dm me asking for a hint if you're close and need a little push


Answers will probably be posted by the end of the week (Sat March 13)

Winner will get 1 month Discord nitro

Cashwarrior's Pokemon Quiz 3

:o Rules are the same as last time.
1 point for guessing the game, 2 points for guessing the track name + game (make sure to tell me the game, some people forget to)
For hints, you can get 1 hint and you can ask what generation the game came out (Anything that releases after the first game in a new generation counts).

Results will be announced on Wednesday the 24th

The schedule is looking a bit empty after the potluck so I thought I'd make another one.

Guess-That-Melody Quiz: MSF Round 32

There are 4 Mario melodies here. Yoshi counts as Mario; Wario and Donkey Kong do not. Otherwise, no series is used more than twice. Good luck! Answers to come probably next Saturday.
