...or just "Zero" as it's named in the original. Anyways, done and done and done! Finally! :D

After a damn long time in the works, this tune finally got it's third and last revival. I made my first cover of this in late 2005 when I just started with recording...to be honest, it sounded like crap. The second version was sligthly better but still not good enough for me. So in late 2007, over two years after the very first recording of this, I finally decided to make a third and last arrangement. Wanna compare this version to the old version? Yeah? Then have a big laugh...

With this piece I present a remix of this very memorable Theme of Zero, if not the best Theme of the hole X series for him. It's not just the original melody, nono, it's a story to be told. Imagen the two heroes facing each other in the battle that was meant to be from the start.

The fight begins with the original melody, which is going right under the skin of retro-lovers such as myself. ;) After 30 seconds of nostalgie the actual remix sets in. Both made their first strike and for a second, the toms take out a little bit of the climax before the fight continues. From 0:30 - 0:52 it's a random fight in the room, they both deal damage to each other before taking their stances again for a short moment at 0:53. After that, the fight continues in an even heavier and more heroic way. The chinas and cymbals crashing indicate each time they clash together. At 1:22 X is thinking about the fight and back when he and Zero became friends. Not wanting the fight but still knowing he has to do it, X deals some heavy damage to Zero from 1:33 - 1:45. The last segment of the song describes the final attack of X, which defeats Zero...

Anyways, I hope you enjoy this piece as much as I enjoyed making it! Review and vote if you like what you've heard! \m/

Eh, could have been better.

The song would be great if the main guitar wasnt drowning out the main tune of the song. Its very hard to hear it, and as a result very annoying.

Eh...what!? Sorry but I don't understand a bit here of what you're saying. Seeing that it has massive positive feedback on youtube, newgrounds and various other sites I think you're a bit alone with your opinion. Ah well, can't please them all, right?

This was truely epic

I've allways been a fan of the megaman series, and it's nice to see someone do Zero some justice

DarKsidE555 responds:

Glad you think I did the song justice! Thanks for checking!

Really good!

I first heard this on YouTube and decided to hear the high quality. I must say, this is really impressive work. I like how it just goes to the killer riff at the beginning.

I read your comment on the 'Author's Comments' and tells how the song goes by, like a story sort of. You really did put up a killer song.

This will most likely be downloaded by me, not only because it's a great song, but because it took you lots of time to put it together to make it sound right. Your hard work payed off!

Good work!
