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!

The top 10 was kind of disappointing for me, but the top 3 fixed it.

Author NintaVsGaming (7 months)
Haven't watched the whole thing but if MM2's Dr Wily Stage 1 isn't in the
top 20 I will cry.

Author The Satellite (29 days)
I wasn't quite satisfied with this list but because of opinion differences,
obviously, main ones being that 4 had too little representation (Bright Man
and both Cossack stage themes are some of my favorite songs), 5 had too
much (I'm really not a fan of anything besides Stone Man, the fortress
themes, and the final boss and credits, though Napalm and Wave are alright
with me), and some of the ordering I disagreed with, mostly in regards to
boss songs... and on that note, why wasn't 9's final boss theme in here?

Of course, that's just my own opinion. But then I saw Magnet Man, my
personal favorite robot master theme of all time, in the top ten. So all is
forgiven. :P

Kinda sad there are no songs from Megaman 7, Megaman 8 or Megaman & Bass. :(
I know you guys were focusing in the 8-bit games, but come on, no love for
these 3 games?

Author TB Tabby (18 days)
Only one song from the first game, and it was Bomb Man's theme? I would've
gone with Elec Man.

But if you want to hear a version of Proto Man's theme that isn't limited
by the NES sound chip, OC Remix has you covered, with lyrics to boot!

Author Michael Bosman (6 days)
I recently played the 5 Game Boy games and Wily Wars. Wily Wars may not be
8-bit but no Buster Rod G? Come on. And the game boy games, Hard Man, Dr
Wily Stage 1 (Mega Man Dr Wily's Revenge), Wily's Marine Fortress (Mega Man
III), Ballade, Dr Wily Stage (MMIV), and pretty much ALL of the music from
Mega Man V was amazing. I can't seem to decide which song from that one is
better. Pluto or Mercury. If this was my list, they'd be at a tie for #3.
So far I;m at a tie with #1 for Elec Man and Buster Rod G.

Dr Cossack 2 ... surprised that wasn't in top 50. Top 3 though are spot on
and it's not even debateable.

Author Juan Ignacio Saba Veloso (1 month)
Wow. Amazing compilation and ranking. Very enjoyable. I agree with #1 and
in general I kind of agree with the entire selection.

I could possibly comment on 50% of the songs if I had the time haha... but
I'm just gonna make one comment about #3. I love that song and I think it's
well placed but I think there are other "versions" of that song that I kind
of like more.

For example from MM4 you see the same "piece" on the start screen:

Author DB N (14 days)
I'll just start by saying this a fantastic list. Great job because it

My only major gripe: Woodman @ 40? Whaaat?!? Granted the drums are not that
good, and more of a defect of the sound engineer tna anything else.
However, the composition is marvelous. I strongly believe it belongs in Top
20, if not higher. I mean, the Sphinx is missing a nose and we all
recognize it as one of the Seven Wonders of the World! Let's give Woodman a
much needed break.

My nitpick is that maybe the list is being a little nitpicky. Airman
outside of Top Ten is okay by me, and I contend Metalman has better music
than Magnetman, but these are subjective objections. This list is biased by
the creators and that's perfectly okay with me!

Author Snake Man DWN-022 (2 months)
Oh yes, you just can't make a list like this without my own theme in the
top 5! :D

lel im a year behind but this is a video I go to almost every time I play
games. All in all an amazing video guys, great job. BUT.......Protoman's
whistle should've at least been a LITTLE higher. The way it turns the
normal 8-bit run of the mill sounds into a masterpiece should not go
unnoticed, and it didn't but I wish you would have given it a little more
attention. Also, I like #1 but it DOES get on my nerves a little bit
because many people do overrate it, though I do agree that it is a
good theme that suits the assault on Wily castle. Another one that I
consider to be a little overrated is Snake man, and idk why but I just
can't get into it as well as others. A little disappointed with Top man
and I would've considered Spark man to be in the top 10 at least but hey,
its your opinion(s). Also, I had no idea until this video that Thunder
Tornado was as good as it is but I agree with the fact that it strays into
the high notes a bit much. In all, this is an awesome video and you guys
did a great job :D

Agree with #1. I also think number 7 Flame Man is on the money too. That is
a great tune. I'm surprised no Woodman. That's a popular one. Then again,
you could put almost all of MM2 on here and I don't think you'd be wrong.
