What are the best Megaman songs? There is enormous variation in the answers we've seen - mostly because nearly every Megaman song is awesome in its own way. Everyone has their own particular tastes in VGM - go to almost any Megaman song on Youtube and you'll see the inevitable top comment: ʺ[Insert robot master] is the best Megaman song EVAR!!! :Dʺ But obviously they can't all be the best.

Looking at what others have done for megaman music rankings, we couldn't help but feel that many lists were deficient. One ranking had Fireman in the top 10 (what.); another had Strikeman as number 1 (WHAT.). Many other rankings were pretty good, but we wanted to see if we could break through the limitations of our own personal bias and produce a more objective ranking. Megaman games played an important role in many peoples' childhood, and therefore those people can be prone to hold a nostalgic reverence for the music of those games. This is a great thing, but it invariably confuses the ʺtrueʺ quality of the music. For example, this why you often see Megaman 1 songs being ranked very high, when there are clearly more deserving songs in the later Megaman games. We wanted to minimize our own personal bias to the extent possible, and thus ʺVideogames According to SCIENCEʺ was born.

Do we claim to be ʺactuallyʺ objective? No, of course not; personal preference will always make an important impact. But we have been excruciatingly careful and methodical in creating this list; you may disagree with us, but it cannot be said that we were less than thorough. We'd like to post our methodology up here... but we kinda ran out of space in the description. However - we'd be happy to tell you about if you're interested!

You really should've had the titles hang on till the end of each bit. I
left this on the background and whenever I heard a new cool song I had to
start rewinding to find which one was it from.

what a shitty list with a typical bias to the same old garbage.

I wish you'd included music from the X series. *cough* Boomer Kuwanger

Author SweetLemonade90 (2 months)
This really helps one to realize how different MM2 music is from the other
games. Like, if I listened to a random Mega Man song without knowing from
which game it is, I probably wouldn't be able to say which game it's from
(unless it's a very characteristic song from that game), but I'll always be
able to tell whether or not it's from MM2 cause they all have that feel to

Author lennonluiz0907 (4 months)
Uh... i guess Wily's Castle from MM5 is my new favorite theme now. Well,
three months are a lot, but i'm still kind of disappointed with your
placing of Proto's whistle... and Wily Stage 1 from MM2. I would happily
SWITCH them. >:(

Mega Man 1 didn't get enough love, but Dark Man was near the top and the
rightful king of video game tunes was at #1. Good enough for me.

Yes, that's right, contrarians. MM2 Dr. Wily Stage 1 deserves every bit of
the praise that's lavished on it. The love it gets isn't due to 'hype'...
there's no freaking monied propaganda campaign out there to elevate it
above other video game songs. The love it gets is organic and real,
because it's just that damn good.

Personally I was hoping #34 would be #1 that's my favorite megaman track

Author Flavio311291 (3 months)
waveman's theme is so underrated ;_;

Author Emiliano Perez (11 days)

Author Siyko (3 months)
The composition really peaked at Megaman 3. Why? The NES only has four
tracks: noise for percussion, triangle usually for bass, and two squares
for the melody. This gives a lot of freedom for melodies trading back and
forth (think Top Man or Needle Man), but MM 4-6 had a huge restriction -
the charging mega buster! In these games there's no reason not to be
charging the mega buster the whole time, so the composer had to work within
the knowledge that one of the square tracks would usually not be heard, and
couldn't do such interesting things as MM3.

Also, was Jewel man from MM9 not on this list? That's my favorite!

theme from MM2 when our hero walks home, thats a top 5! )
