Promotional Miqo'te Dress victory pose.

Party's over.

One of the exclamations Lightning can make when a battle is won.

In Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII, Lightning performs victory poses upon winning a battle. The pose Lightning does depends on the garb she currently wears. She will also exclaim various things upon winning the battle, depending on the part of the story and the condition she wins the battle in.
