OverClocked Remix's second annual Grand Robot Master Remix Battle recently wrapped up. And the winner is WillRock with his Elec Man vs. Spring Man mash-up.

Here's how the competition works: each remixer chooses a boss from any of the "regular" series (Mega Man 1-10, Mega Man and Bass, plus Mega Man Powered Up). Once an opponent has been chosen, both have one week to create a song that incorporates the theme of their chosen Robot Master and their opponent's. Afterwards the community votes on whose is the best, and the winner moves onto the next round.

All the entries are available to download via the official forum thread, along with a look at the entire bracket. If you're assuming everyone chose someone from Mega Man 2 or 3, you'd be mistaken; it's actually a fairly diverse cross-section. One can also find a download link to last year's competition's, which to be honest, I dug more. But that's because I'm a sucker for anything with Magnet Man's theme.
