"Omnis Lacrima" is the boss theme in Final Fantasy XV that 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. It is composed by Yoko Shimomura.
