One Winged Angel (FFVII)
A true classic in the JRPG world, One Winged Angel has been redone in so many different ways it’s ridiculous. It’s been covered by The Black Mages, revised for Advent Children, and done frighteningly good justice by the Philharmonic Orchestra. It’s such a versatile piece of music, and it’s brilliant to keep you pumped up for a very long, and epic boss battle.
Battle With Seymour (FFX)
This is another one that has seen a few different version floating around. Again, The Black Mages covered it, which was amazing, but the original is still the best. It’s just so funky and you can just imagine Seymour when you listen to it, and his smug little face.
Chaotic Dance (Baten Kaitos)
This might be a bit of an obscure one, however I’m hoping a few of you have heard this one. Baten Kaitos was a bit like Marmite. Personally I loved it, but it was perhaps a bit too niche for others. Regardless, this boss battle that crops up a couple of times in the game is truly different. With a techno dance vibe to it, you can’t help but have a little dance around as you kick some boss butt.
Invisible Depths (FFXIII-2)
This was the only redeeming factor of FFXIII-2 for me. The game itself was utterly confusing and I didn’t care about what was going on. However, when I got to the final boss in the game, it was like the game knew it had to redeem itself, and this gave me an instant rush of adrenaline to defeat a very taxing boss. I won’t spoil anything, but the epic nature of this theme will keep you going through this tiresome fight.
Boss Battle 1 (Legend of Dragoon)
A very badly named boss theme, but that doesn’t mean it isn’t amazing. Legend of Dragoon is a game that is filled with about three different boss themes, but this one is the best in my opinion. It gets the adrenaline going, and for those that have played the game, you will know exactly how pumped up you need to be to keep going during these fights.
