Awesome Music / Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Games

Go To

Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Games is a crossover between gaming's two most famous franchises. Although the concept might seem strange, there's no doubt it brought the best of both.

For the individual series' pages, see here and here.

Mario & Sonic at the Beijing 2008 Olympic Games

  • While the original 2008 game hasn't been mentioned as much, the theme for the Trampoline stage really encapsulates how fun it is to bounce on a trampoline.
  • Who could forget the 100m and 400m themes? Awesome rushing music to sprint to along with that guitar track!

Mario & Sonic at the Vancouver 2010 Olympic Winter Games

  • Bowser's Road. A remix with new electronics and brass, yet still carrying just as much menace.

Mario & Sonic at the London 2012 Olympic Games

Mario & Sonic at the London 2012 Olympic Games has a ton of awesome remixes of classic and newer Mario tunes.

  • Battlerock Galaxy. The new percussion and strings give more control to the song's power, to the point of feeling like a march.

  • Dino Piranha. A simple addition of electronics and guitar goes a long way.
  • Sky Station Galaxy (Super Mario Galaxy 2). A new dance beat gives the impression of both a club and an orchestra.

Rival Themes

  • VS. Jet. Guitar and keyboard collide, giving a sound that's powerful yet free-flowing.
  • VS. King Boo. This song pulls off an unheard-of combo; haunting, yet fun and bouncy. Having part of BINGO Highway's background harmony doesn't hurt either.
  • VS. Dry Bones. Bouncy melody, yet it always tries to keep a creepy air.
  • VS. Eggman Nega. Great guitar mixed with mechanical electronic control, yet every so often it lets loose.
  • VS. Dry Bowser. Wow. Despite its length and the shifting pseudo-orchestra hits, this song keeps an oppressive and creeping air of dread.
  • VS. E-123 Omega. Mechanically creeping, yet always keeps a fast pace. Sadly also counts as Long Song, Short Scene since most of Omega's rival battles are for brief, fast paced events.
  • VS. Rouge. Fun-loving, catchy, and despite new electronic beats, keeps the trend of giving Rouge jazzy melodies.
  • VS. Birdo, a very jaunty and bouncy tropical theme.
