Game appearances[edit | edit source]
"Turk's Theme" is included in the "Chase of The Highway" theme, playing from 3:18 to 3:48. In the movie, this coincides with when the action cuts from Cloud and the Remnants' motorcycle chase in the tunnel to Rude and Reno setting a bomb on the bridge.
"Theme of Turks (Before Crisis Version)" is an arrangement of "Turks' Theme" by Takeharu Ishimoto and is the first track of the Before Crisis -Final Fantasy VII- & Last Order -Final Fantasy VII- Original Soundtrack.
"The Clandestine Dark Suits (from Final Fantasy VII Turks' Theme)" is another arrangement of the theme by Takeharu Ishimoto and is the eighteenth track of the Crisis Core -Final Fantasy VII- Original Soundtrack.
"The Clandestine Dark Suits" is heard when Cissnei tells Zack in Gongaga village Angeal has been sighted and that Zack's parents are worried he won't ever find a wife. The theme also plays when Genesis Copies attack Shinra and Midgar and Zack is interrupted by Reno who tells him Sector 8 is the Turks' jurisdiction.
"Theme of Turks 2005" is a third arrangement of the theme by Takeharu Ishimoto, and is the twenty-fourth track of the Before Crisis -Final Fantasy VII- & Last Order -Final Fantasy VII- Original Soundtrack.
In addition, the Turks have a dedicated battle theme called "The Turks: Reno", which plays when Cloud duels Reno in the church at the Sector 5 Slums, as well as his later duel with Rude near Aerith's house. It is a rock version of the classic Turks' Theme, which incorporates some leitmotivs of other themes, most notably the "Infiltrating Shinra HQ" and "Let the Battles Begin!" from the original Final Fantasy VII.
