"Sixteen Bells" is the main battle theme of Final Fantasy XVI. It was composed and arranged by Masayoshi Soken.

There are three other battle themes from the game that use the same melody as "Sixteen Bells": the boss themes "On the Shoulders of Giants", "To Sail Forbidden Seas", and "No Risk, No Reward". The intro melody of "Sixteen Bells" is identical to the initial melody of Final Fantasy VIII's "Don't Be Afraid".
