Final Fantasy Wiki

"Struggle for Freedom" (自由への闘い, Jiyū e no Tatakai?), also known as "The Battle for Freedom", is the final boss theme of Final Fantasy XII. It was composed by Hitoshi Sakimoto.

Within the piece can be heard a medley of boss themes throughout the game, including "Flash of Steel", "Discord [Imperial Version]", and "Life and Death", as well as the continuous riff of the "The Archadian Empire" and the Final Fantasy XII main theme; which is most prominent in the song's climax.

Game appearances[]

Final Fantasy XII[]

"Struggle for Freedom" plays during the battle against the final boss. The theme's tension-building opening portion begins playing during the cutscene in which Vayne Solidor morphs into The Undying, running from 0:00-3:10. The remainder of the theme begins as the boss fight opens and loops from this portion, should the battle run long enough. Should the player choose to skip the cutscene, the theme will begin immediately from this latter portion. In the original soundtrack, it is the sixteenth track on the fourth disc.
