Tie time! I’m giving the win to Mega Man Battle Network – Battle Theme over Final Fantasy Tactics Advance – Companions That Surpassed Their Tribe. Score one for the bleeps and bloops!

Elsewhere, we’ve lost a Hikari. Don’t worry, though, we’ve got 3 more where that came from, including another one that won in this very group!
