I don't know why, but I always think of the Jenova theme. It is by no means my favorite, but the song just sticks in my head and has done since my childhood.

Final Fantasy 13 had a general boss song that was brilliant. I think it was titles "Saber's edge".

Some other note worthy themes from this gen that surprised me are Gwyn Lord of Cinder's theme and Ornstein and Smough. Both themes are from Dark Souls and add so much to the encounter.

For me personally the greatest boss theme is Zeromus (Final Battle) in Final Fantasy 4.

It was the first FF game i finished & hearing that song when battling Zeromus was epic. The music felt like a battle to save the world which is what a final battle should be like.

Mine is definitely the song that plays during the fight with Sephiroth. As a fan of classical music, those screeching strings gave* me chills.

I have it on my "online gaming" playlist. I love when it randomly plays!

*Second Edit: One Winged Angel is the title.

Lol that was bugging me. :P

Never played any of the Persona games, but that boss theme he listed as #1 does sound pretty sweet.

I'm stuck on this one at the moment:

This at one point was my alarm clock:

and I just can't get these two from KH2 out of my head:
They're not even the "best tracks EVAAAARR" but they just stick. It's disturbing just how many times I've played those two KH tracks on repeat, especially the first one.

Oh and an honorable mention:

I love RPG music, especially the boss battle themes :). Anyone know any other sweet ones?

Destati is probably my favorite. I loved KH1. The music was just perfect all around.
TheLyonKing  +   1243d ago
I agree with them all especially kh2.

One winged angel-orchestral is a triumph of composing and am nit just saying it cause I am a huge ff 7 fan (I think 8 is better)

Even non boss themes though such as breezy -balmb town theme is beautiful.

Basically kudos to Umetsu
