Final Fantasy Wiki

This jaunty rock song from FFVII's boss fights starts with an exciting guitar solo and is far and away one of the most popular songs in the long FF series.

"Fight On!" (更に闘う者達, Sarani Tatakau Monotachi?, lit. Those Who Fight Further), also known as "Those Who Fight Further", is the boss battle theme for Final Fantasy VII, composed and arranged by Nobuo Uematsu. It is notable for its heavy rock style and fast pace. It has sections of the third part of "Overture" from Final Fantasy VI mixed in it.

The track shares a similar iconic guitar riff to the song "Jailbait" from Motorhead as well as Metallica's "For Whom the Bell Tolls".


The track's Japanese name is "Those Who Fight Further", in continuation from the normal battle theme that is called "Those Who Fight", which may originate from the three orders of medieval society as opined by philosophers: Those Who Pray, Those Who Fight, and Those Who Labor.
