battle-theme

remember when game freak sound team improved ghetsis’s battle theme by just making it a hype-ass song when compared to the slow and awkward original

tbh gilgamesh, papyrus from undertale, and zed from wild arms are the holy trinity of jokey mid-boss villains whose battle themes are absolute jams

gif battle: harryspotter vs dallisons: hp edition
↳ round one: the golden trio + gold

hermione, when have any of our plans ever actually worked? we plan, we get there, all hell breaks loose.

your crown is burning
gold and blood, dripping
power down your back.

the sky is bruised purple
like wine or lilacs. you are
waiting for it to fall down.
even atlas cannot stand
forever.

you are watching a bird fly,
its precious gem wings a-flutter.
it loops into the sunset, drawn away
from the chaos of your kingdom.

crowns sit heavy on the hearts
of heroes, both born and bred
and forged from flames.

caesar was a boy once.
rome was a village once.

destiny is calling, little king.
you can carve your name
into the heart of the forest
but even a king cannot
survive alone.

call the bird back, let it sing.
crown a queen to rule beside you.
give atlas a hand.

build yourself a new rome
and let the sky be your walls.
this kingdom of yours, caesar –
don’t let it crumble down.
