Final Fantasy Wiki

The theme for FFVIII's final boss fight. Voices rise as if in prayer, then the music swells in unsettling eddies as the lonely intro takes on a raging beat.

"The Extreme" is the final boss theme of Final Fantasy VIII. It was composed by Nobuo Uematsu.

On the soundtrack, "The Extreme" has a running time of approximately 6 minutes and 45 seconds. "The Extreme" features a female chorus eerily chanting "Fithos Lusec Wecos Vinosec" in its intro. Additionally, the intro to many of the older battle themes of the Final Fantasy series can be heard after the tranquil intro ends.
