About


The song Trombe! is Elzam Von Bransteinmore’s (more popularly known as Rätsel Feinschmecker) theme song and plays whenever the he is selected in the game to move around or attack another character. Normally characters in the game have a hierarchy of priority, and when characters fight whichever one has a higher priority then their theme song plays instead of the character they are fighting. There is a glitch though involving the song Trombe!, it strangely has a higher priority than any other song in the entire game and will “Override” the opponents theme, even when fighting the final boss of the series. [1][2][3][4]



Origin


The song Trombe! comes from the Game Boy Advanced game Super Robot Wars: Original Generation made in 2002. Super Robot Wars is a tactical role-playing (turn based strategy) game featuring completely original characters who all use mecha’s in combat[5]. The game has a sequel game called Super Robot Taisen: Original Generation 2, which in 2005 became an anime OVA continuing the plot where the game left off, Super Robot Wars Original Generation: The Animation[6][7]. The entire plot is adapted into the anime Super Robot Taisen OG: Divine Wars[8][9], and its sequel Super Robot Wars Original Generation: The Inspector[10][11]. There are many other Super Robot Wars games on many different platforms.



Elzam Von Bransteinmore’s theme song, Trombe!, usually has a higher priority over every other music in the Super Robot War games, even those of bosses – it will even override Keisar Ephes; the final boss of the entire series. This was originally due to a bug, but has been deliberately kept in subsequent games as a running gag. In fact, the only time it was ever overridden was by the orchestra piece “The Blue Danube” (composed by Johann Strauss), being literally blared from the battleship of Leonardo Medicci Bundol, one of the villains from the anime GoShogun; this happens because the mech is equipped with enormous speakers which reproduce the waltz so loud it renders any other background music useless.[1]



Spread


Fans found the bug hilarious, especially due to the fact that fans say the song is awesome, that Elzam Von Bransteinmore is extremely manly, and started saying that the theme Trombe! Overrides everything[12].
