Default Rockman Complete Works Unofficial Composer Breakdown

So in my boredom I realized I haven't done these yet.

-First off, the composers and arrangers of the Power Battle and Power Fighter tracks (Setsuo Yamamoto, Hideki Okugawa, Yuki Iwai, Masato Kouda, Yuko Takehara, Syun Nishigaki, Tatsuro Suzuki) are never credited in any of the six games' in-game credits, but I will credit them properly here.

Naoto Tanaka: Ending [Piano; the one that stands out the most] [In other words, Tanaka might only be credited for the "over-menu" password, but this is just in case he did more than that; either his or Miyawaki's]

Setsuo Yamamoto, Hideki Okugawa [currently unresolved]: Game Start, Stage Clear (Both from Rockman 2: The Power Fighters) [Most likely done by Setsuo Yamamoto (for both)]

Takuya Miyawaki: Darkman Stage Map, Darkman Stage [Guitar] [These two stick out the most, and there's another track more likely to be Tanaka's...; either his or Nishio's]

Naoto Tanaka: "Over-menu" Staff Roll [Stand-out; Naoto was in all six of the games, so he would be the most likely to handle an original track; it's either his or Miyawaki's]

Hideki Okugawa: Gyroman Stage (From Rockman 2: The Power Fighters)

Setsuo Yamamoto: Napalmman Stage (From Rockman 2: The Power Fighters)

Yuko Takehara: Stage Select (From Rockman 2: The Power Fighters)

**NOTE: Stage Clear from Power Battle and Power Fighters IS NOT used here


So yeah, Tanaka being the only name in the first half made short work of those exclusive tracks, and (for the second half) knowing that Tanaka [organ] did all the music in 6 helps make Takuya Miyawaki [techno] (the only other music arranger in 4) more recognizable, and the two together make Masahito Nishio [violin] (or whatever his/her name is) recognizable for 5.

First of all: Thanks for this. It's nice to have this info in one convenient spot while tagging and cataloging.

Second: I identified the mystery character for Rockman 5's primary arranger. His name should be Masato Nishio ( 西尾 将人 ), not Masahito.
