While songs from Final Fantasy shouldn't be unexpected, there are two from the series that I insist are too awesome to ignore. The first is from Mystic Quest, when you fight the Dark King
. It just rocks. The other is the fight with Zeromus
in Final Fantasy 4, which I think is the definitive song when it comes to capturing the feeling of a life or death struggle.
There's the standard battle song
in Romancing Saga: Minstrel's Song, which I never tire of. But, really, whoever composed the battle songs for that game did an awesome
job, as illustrated further here
and, finally... here
Ah, there was the fight against the mana beast/dragon
in Secret of Mana.
There's this song
from Atelier Iris 3.
From Mana Khemia: this song
, this song
, and this song
Disgaea 2: awesome incarnate
...And I should probably stop there or I'll be at this forever. XD;;
