“Zero’s Theme ~Medley~” from Mega Man X, performed by “The Plasmas.”.
One of my earliest prominent memories of video games was going to my aunt and uncle’s new house in St. Rose du Lac. They had Mega Man 2 and, like most who grew up with it, it was a transformative experience.
Then I got Mega Man 3 and 4 a little while later, and they were cool… but then came that silver-coloured issue of Nintendo Power. Come on, you know which one I’m talking about.
Mega Man X 🙂
Now, I was nine years old in 1993 and I knew in my heart that this was the pinnacle of the Mega Man franchise. I mean, look at this resolution!
And then was Zero! And then Zero’s intense metal theme! (Well, metal for SNES anyway). That theme BLEW MY MIND.
Then came X2 and the craziest thing happened: Zero had a new theme? Which, for character themes, is kind of bizarre because you want to hear the continuity of it through the series.
Anyway, enjoy the metal rendition by “The Plasmas.”
