"Awakening" is the final boss theme of Final Fantasy XI. It was composed by Kumi Tanioka.

Final Fantasy XI[]

"Awakening" serves as the background theme for the final battle against the Shadow Lord at the Castle Zvahl Keep's throne room. It also plays during several other later encounters in the Throne Room, as well as the area theme for Dynamis - Xarcabard.

This track's tune is dark and gloomy at start, but soon it rises into a fast-paced theme, giving the impression that the battle is elapsing. After this, the battle cycles between its main tune and a smooth, eerie tune, resembling the track's introduction. The track can be found in the original soundtrack as the 28th track of disc 2.
