A battle theme used for boss fights in FFXII. The orchestral timbre is lavish and the iconic melody flows and builds a majestic air of daring and courage.

Theatrhythm Final Fantasy description

"Boss Battle" (ボス戦, Bosu Ikusa?) is the regular boss battle theme from Final Fantasy XII.

The track intro starts with percussion that builds up alongside the "Dalmasca Resistance" theme, then joined with strings and wind instruments. The climax is a clash of louder percussion, which abruptly ends with strings repeating the intro.

Game appearancesEdit

Final Fantasy XIIEdit

"Boss Battle" plays during many boss fights. It is written by Hitoshi Sakimoto and is the fifth track on disc 1 on the original soundtrack.

The track is one of numerous themes rearranged for the high-definition remaster Final Fantasy XII: The Zodiac Age, with new swells in the instrumentation and an overall crisper and clearer sound.[1] There are differences in instrumentation and sound, as well as in the written music, notably the trumpets blows in the crescendo, which in the old version plays a syncopated figure, and updated version play tremolos instead.

The track is heard for the first time fighting against Air Cutter Remora during the Prologue's Nalbina Fortress mission, when playing as Reks.
