Final Fantasy Wiki

In most earlier games in the series, all towns used a default town theme, often simply called "town theme". This trend has faded in later games as many towns now have their own unique themes.

Game appearances[]

Final Fantasy[]

"Town" appears as the first town theme. It plays in every town, and is listed as the eighth track in the NES soundtrack, and the tenth track of the first disc in the PS soundtrack. It also appears as a purchasable theme in Dissidia Final Fantasy and remixed on the Chocobo Racing Original Soundtrack under the name "White Mage's Theme". A live performance is included on the A New World: intimate music from Final Fantasy album.

Final Fantasy II[]

"Town" returns with a similar feel to the original Final Fantasy version. It appears as the twenty seventh track in the original NES soundtrack, and the ninth track of disc two in the PS soundtrack. It is also included on the Final Fantasy Vinyls collector's set album on the fourth disc and in the Final Fantasy XV music player.

Final Fantasy III[]

"My Home Town" (故郷の街ウル, Furusato no Machi Uru?, lit. Home Town of Ur), called "The Village of Ur" in the DS remake, is the town theme used most often, appearing in all towns but three. "Time Remains" (古代人の村, Kodaijin no Mura?, lit. Village of the Ancients), called "The Ancients" in the DS remake, plays only in the Village of the Ancients. "Return of the Warrior" (勇者の帰還, Yūsha no Kikan?, lit. Return of the Hero), called "Return of the Warriors" in the DS remake, plays in Kazus and Castle Sasune after the warriors defeat Djinn, and Saronia after defeating Gigametz.

Final Fantasy IV[]

The theme "Welcome to Our Town!" (街のテーマ, Machi no Tēma?, lit. Town Theme) plays in most towns. It is the sixth track in the official soundtrack. Arrangements of the theme are included on the Final Fantasy IV: Celtic Moon and Piano Collections: Final Fantasy IV albums. The Piano Collections version is also found on the Potion: Relaxin' with Final Fantasy album.

Another arrangement of the theme by Daiki Ishikawa also plays in Final Fantasy XIV: Endwalker, while the player is in Bestways Burrow at Mare Lamentorum.

Mysidia does not have the normal town theme, instead playing "Mystic Mysidia". The Feymarch town area also has a different theme, "The Land of Summons". All the inhabited castles have themes of their own.

Final Fantasy V[]

The "Town Theme" makes an appearance and plays in many towns. It also known as "Tenderness in the Air." Another town theme, "Harvest" (ハーヴェスト, Hāvesuto?) plays in Carwen, Istory, and Quelb, in the style of lively Welsh instrumental folk music. It is included Final Fantasy XV music player.

Japanese Rōmaji[]
Tobu tori no sora o miage

English translation[]
Looking up at a sky of flying birds
Lying down in a field
Gentle sunbeams
Shining on my cheeks
Ripples of an emerald sea
I strain to hear
Going with the gentle flow
Of time
I close my eyes, take a deep breath
My heart grows tranquil
My hometown always gives me
Gentle times
Beneath the same sky
Yet far apart
Now the town is mine alone
The days I spend here
Hopes and dreams and uneasiness
And loneliness, too
All tangle together; sometimes
I let the tears flow, although
Younger days--dreams, and the future I imagined
So I can be sure I'll come across them
I'll be in this town until then
Keeping on, believing in myself
In search of boundless dreams
