"Omnis Lacrima" (stylized as OMNIS LACRIMA on the album), is the boss theme in Final Fantasy XV. It was composed by Yoko Shimomura and was arranged and orchestrated by Kaoru Wada and Shota Nakama. The original lyrics were written by Tetsuya Nomura.

It plays against large beasts on the field. Although the game has various boss themes, "Omnis Lacrima" was unveiled first and featured prominently in early trailers when the game was still known as Final Fantasy Versus XIII, and it remains the most frequent boss theme in the game.
