AT ARMS HOOVES, PONIES! Your favorite pony is now in a fight, and needs some kickflank music to get them through their battle.

This week's theme is: write a battle theme for a pony.

Remember, each pony has their own personality! For instance, would Rainbow Dash's song sound like Lyra or Bon-Bon's? Try to capture your pony just right!


You have TWO WEEKS to create a song (original, remix, or whatever) in response to the theme.
(Time extension due to Brony remix war!)

No Strings Attached (Octavia Battle Theme) Jeffthestrider 7/7/2011 9:21:10pm No.4 - Score: 14
If for some reason Octavia got in a fight, what would be her battle theme?

What if Octavia just so happened to be a final boss in a Final Fantasy game?

I don't know, but this is what I think it might sound like!

We Are The End - Rainbow Dash Tarby 7/5/2011 5:15:00am No.2 - Score: 10
Brash, heavy, in your face metal music combined with an airy, almost floating feel. This is essentially what i picture Rainbow Dash listening to during or before a battle (that or Don't Stop Me Now by Queen, though i'm sure if i posted someone else's song, i'd get disqualified xD); a song that's heavy, in your face, driving, and gets the adrenaline pumping hard enough that you either must mosh or punch the living shit outta something. Enjoy!

Once again, I have proven that I can only write lyric-based songs. The song screams (almost literally) for lyrics, so if anyone wants to write some up, that'd be more than fine.

Rarity, Graceful Style! Dr Dissonance 7/7/2011 9:29:53pm No.5 - Score: 10
Rarity is the embodiment of style and grace. Her battle music should represent that. AND IT DOES! Harpsichord in yo face! French 6ths everywhere! If that doesn't entice you, I don't know what will!

Борьба баллада Принцесса Селестия Jackle App !2Uqe0sHWIk 7/8/2011 2:16:33pm No.8 - Score: 10
Jackle App reporting in with another goddamn soundwall.
Imagine if someone invoked the wrath of Princess Celestia! Damn!

The Great and Powerful Battle Soupy Derper 7/8/2011 7:15:12pm No.9 - Score: 10
A great and powerful pony needs a great and powerful battle theme. And what's the greatest and most powerful music known to ponydom? That's right, GYPSY POLKA.

Nightfall - Zecora's Battle Theme Senator Myth 7/7/2011 10:56:03pm No.6 - Score: 9
The night is falling in the jungle, and a storm is brewing. But that's the least of your worries. Somewhere out there in the shadows lurks Zecora. And she's more than ready to kick your flank.

Strong rhythms, atonal xylophone noodling. Wild and mysterious. A perfect fit for Zecora.

SUPER TWILIGHT 安っぽいJ-ポップのボスアタック GO GO! Derpy Hooves 7/9/2011 11:00:22pm No.17 - Score: 8
Finished this just in time, made VERY quickly
Was going for a very cheesy J-pop sound

Applejack Fights Off Raving Parasprites Interrobang Pie 7/8/2011 5:10:56am No.7 - Score: 7
Can Applejack defend against another swarm of invading Parasprites?!?!?!? WHo knows...

This music is bad.

Trixie VS Twispark+Applejack THROWDOWN DerpyGrooves 7/9/2011 8:53:28pm No.10 - Score: 7
Acapella radio play.

Dont mess with the Derp sci 7/9/2011 9:34:56pm No.12 - Score: 7
See, the thing about Derpy...she's not just a normal pegasus pony. She can bend and twist the laws of reality to her will, but generally chooses not to.
She's quite happy to sit back and enjoy the world.

But now you've stolen her muffin.

Blood Moon - Nightmare Moon Battle Theme Overkillius 7/9/2011 10:35:45pm No.15 - Score: 5
I had about 3 hours to write this (plus an hour before the end of the contest) I think it turned out well.

Tango Down Sadsic 6/28/2011 2:41:41am No.1 - Score: 4

for cheerilee

Prance! zorg 7/9/2011 9:23:29pm No.11 - Score: 2

Vinyl Scratch theme turned into generic trance

Scary Forest zorg 7/9/2011 10:15:24pm No.14 - Score: 0
