Though quite good I would have to place FF7 & FF6 ahead. FF4 probably comes in at #3.

Agreed with the the regular boss theme. The others are up there, but I like other boss themes from other FFs a tad more.

I agree that FF4 has the best boss themes.

I'm not really fond of these boss battle themes.

I also agree with FFIV having the best regular boss theme, but barely. And the others...

I just love all the music in the series so much. It's really hard to play favorites with such grand orchestration. Although I will say Clash on the Big Bridge is at least top three when it comes to special boss themes. "Enough expository banter! Now we fight like men! And ladies! And ladies who dress like men!"

I'm not really fond of these boss battle themes.
I would normally say you must not have good taste, but your avatar is Gumby. With a guitar. And it even includes Pokey. So I'm going to go out on a limb and say there must be something wrong with your ears ;)

Semi-agreed. For the regular boss theme I prefer FF6's but overall I agree with FF4 having the best boss themes. FF7 is also up there with JENOVA, One Winged Angel, Birth of a God and the regular boss theme.

They're nice, but I have to put every single boss theme in FFX apart from the main boss theme on the top, followed by some FFXIII and FFIX themes. They kicked so much ass.

I think the themes are good, but 7 probably has the best.

Something about Final Fantasy IV's Main Boss Theme is just amazing. I think it's that steady rock beat being set to the mother of all sweeping operatic battle themes. If you notice, they never revisit this beat for a boss battle theme in the series again. It's what we in the music-producing business call "a driving beat," "four on the floor," etc. The tempo is very fast for a Final Fantasy battle theme, as well.
