Template:Listen ("Maybe I'm a Lion", 多分私はライオンです?, lit. Tabun watashi wa raiondesu) is a track from Final Fantasy VIII that plays only during the battle with Ultimecia's junctioned form with Griever. It was composed by Nobuo Uematsu.

A power metal-style arrangement was featured on the The Black Mages' second studio album, in which translator Alexander O. Smith acts as guest "vocalist". The song's title, vocalized at its beginning, are the only lyrics in the song and were performed by Smith himself.

  • "Maybe I'm a Lion"'s title may be inspired by the English Hard Rock band Deep Purple's "Maybe I'm a Leo". The second section of "Maybe I'm A Lion" also closely resembles the arrangement of "Maybe I'm A Leo".
  • The song's intro is remarkably similar to Canadian prog band Rush's song, "YYZ".
