SuperPhillip's Favorite VGMs - I Would Walk 500 VGMs Edition

Here we are eagerly awaiting what the 500th video will be. Unless, of course, you already know ahead of time! Then I call you a cheater. Regardless, this list began in May of 2008, and it's been going strong ever since. This week I have in store for you some music from Kirby Air Ride, Klonoa, Resident Evil: The Darkside Chronicles, and more. Time to reach 500!

v496. Kirby Air Ride - Frozen Hillside

Last time we took a listen to Sonic Riders: Zero Gravity. Time for another unorthodox racer with Kirby AIr Ride. Frozen Hillside is an icy track with plenty of tight turns and slick surfaces to ride over. This theme is also a part of the Super Smash Bros. Brawl soundtrack.

v497. Klonoa 2: Lunatea's Veil - Going to Lunatea

Going to Lunatea plays on the world map, and it has a warm folksy feeling to it. With the bombing of the Wii title of Klonoa, it may seem like Klonoa's going to be put into early retirement! Shame on you, the collective known as Wii owners. And I was just getting into the franchise!

v498. Resident Evil: The Darkside Chronicles - Theme of Alexia 2

The battle with Code Veronica's end boss, Alexia, lasts three stages. The first Alexia still resembles something human-like. The second? Not so much. Her third form is super agile as she transforms into a dragonfly-like creature. This theme plays during the tense battle. I love how haunting the vocals are especially when the vocalist hits those high notes. The catchy accompaniment isn't too shabby either!

v499. Mega Man IV - Dr. Cossack 2 mix

This song comes from the 20th Anniversary Rockman celebratory CD. There was a rock one, and there was a techno one. I greatly prefer the rock themes compared to techno. Regardless, this is the second stage of Dr. Cossack's lair. Of course, Wily was behind the whole thing yet again. I didn't spoil that for anyone, did I?

v500. Super Smash Bros. Brawl - Victory Theme Medley

Here it is. The 500th VGM to grace my list. It's been over a year since we've started, and here is my number 500 pick. It's all of the Super Smash Bros. Brawl victory themes rolled into one video. Seems fitting as a victory to 500 videos, no? They said it couldn't be done, but I proved them wrong! Well, actually no one said it couldn't be done, but that doesn't matter. There's also some bonus themes at the tale-end, too. Thanks for supporting my videos to all that have! May we see each other again 500 videos from now!

A new chapter of SuperPhillip's VGMs begins next week with a themed series of videos all based on one popular anime and video game franchise. Do you think you know what it is? We'll find out next week on SuperPhillip's Favorite VGMs!
