Taiko Time 7th Anniversary Quiz: The Questions


Welcome to the annual mainstay of our Anniversary celebration! (except that one time where we turned the tables and have you ask us questions)

This year's Anniversary Quiz consists of seven main questions with some further divided into parts, to a total of 17 possible points. To enter, please send your answers together with your nickname to be displayed via one of the following methods by the deadline of September 5 2017:
We will reveal the answers and results on September 18 2017 at the Anniversary Conclusion post. All participants submitted an answer by the deadline will receive a little something as a token of thanks back at the submission channel you sent us (no exact delivery time as of now, but we will keep you posted).

Question 1: Screenshot Quiz
We had this at our 2nd Anniversary Quiz before, and it is now making the great return! All the screenshots are taken from Full Combo runs on the HD Taiko no Tatsujin arcade, and we are only showing the scroll bars to limit outside hints, but this should be enough to deduce what songs they are from.

(a)

(b)

(c)

(d)

(e)

Question 2: Coming for Seconds
Humans as a species are prone to honoring the firsts way more than seconds. Let us celebrate the seconds of the Taiko no Tatsujin world with these trivia questions.
(a) Taiko no Tatsujin Session de Dodon ga Don/Drum Session (PS4-1) is hailed simultaeously as the second English-, (traditional) Chinese- and Korean-language Taiko console game. Name one difference each from their respective firsts, excluding the ones that are also newly different in the Japanese version, as well as the ovbious things like song choices and visual design.
(b) We all know which song is the first to have the famed Nam-combo. Which one is the second one then?
(c) There is one big difference between the second place Donder in the Taiko no Tatsujin World Championships 2016 compared with the other winners. What is it?

Question 3: Time-waster of the Day
Only counting running times of songs, what is the longest time a credit of 3 songs can take in these arcade versions? Consider their status as at August 15 2017.
(a) Taiko no Tatsujin 14 Plus
(b) Taiko no Tatsujin Sorairo ver.
(c) Taiko no Tatsujin Yellow ver.

Question 4: Audio Deka, Taiko Time 7th Anniversary Special
(Disclaimer: the following scenario is completely fictional as well as non-canonical to the official Audio Deka universe)
Audie and Professor Marvy are again in action to investigate a suspected case of foul play. The victim was found unconscious in a downtown arcade room, in front of a HD Taiko no Tatsujin cabinet, just as staff returns to business from a Marine Day 2017 break. The said cabinet was still running on Kimidori ver. firmware because the owners claims "upgrading is too expensive". The victim's medical records reveals that due to a chronic illness looking at objects flying past at extremely high speeds may cause him to lose consciousness. While our two intrepid protagonists proceeds to unravel the mystery, they must first decide whether that cabinet is related to the case anything more than just the location. What is the highest speed (in terms of equivalent BPM) that can be produced by that cabinet in a note, and which song is it?

Question 5: Dairantou SSB ~All-star Taiko Brothers~
The last Super Smash Bros. games (3DS/Wii U) have had such close relation with Namco (mostly its in-house composer) that we have done more than the fair share of feature posts for a Taiko no Tatsujin blog. What is the percentage of the playable characters (excluding Mii Fighters and costumes) in the whole Super Smash Bros. series that have song inclusions in any of the Taiko no Tatsujin games? Count all songs already released and/or announced to future inclusion as of August 15 2017, including those coming to PS4-1 for example.
(Note: For simplicity you can just generalize by franchise here. As an example, for having the original Super Mario Bros. song in Taiko, you can also count Rosalina and Luma, even though she was not yet introduced way back then)

Question 6: Ranking Dojo Gaiden, Taiko Time 7th Anniversary Special
If we take the favourite songs of nigelliusnitrox, Lokamp and pikaby and put them as a Ranking Dojo Gaiden trial (use the highest possible difficulty, in that order), what is the ceiling score attainable?

Question 7: Fill in the Tables
And we end on the almost-staple question in the Anniversary Quiz. You know what to do: find out which songs these are and fill in the missing details. Unless specified otherwise, any "???" (3 question marks) may represent any length of text or even blanks.

(a)

  1. We kindly ask you folks NOT to post your answers to our quiz as comments of this very blog post... To spoil the fun for the other contenders doesn't sound that nice, doesn't it?
