In the whole trilogy, which would you say are your favorite battle themes? Boss or normal.

Recently I've become very attached to this one

Knight of the Goddess is fantastic, though I think I slightly prefer Blinded by Light for the masterful buildup and amazing payoff that Crimson Blitz sadly lacks.

Fighting Fate. i thought that it sounded funny with Barthandelus reveal. and i like the choir because idk, also sounds like some "march of the evil kittens" like song :shrug:

I really love Unseen Abyss, but they're all great.

Fun fact! The orchestral pieces for FFXIII's soundtrack were recorded by the Warsaw Philharmonic! That orchestra actually records a lot of video game and music soundtrack, including one of my favorite soundtracks of all time - Wolf's Rain. Polish pride! :D

Some of my favorites:

* Knight of the Goddess - grows really epic when the violin part starts
* Condition Omega / Followers of Chaos - not a pure battle theme, but it plays during an area and all of its battles. A very apocalyptic feel in the area where it plays.
* The Ruler of Time and Space - Valfodr level 99 is epic

EDIT: You're right, Forsaken Lover. I was originally planning to include both songs on the list since they work so well together. Condition Omega builds up the desperate atmosphere, which makes Followers of Chaos even more powerful when all hell breaks loose.

Followers of Chaos is nice and all but I was sad when this theme stopped playing.

I love Caius' Themes, don't get me wrong, but it doesn't needto be everywhere. This was more...unique. I love the cold, military feel of it. When you first arrive in Academia 400 AF and everything goes to Hell. This music just sets the tone so perfectly.

Nthing is perfect, sadly. Even XIII-2's OST had some missteps.

I'm also disappointed none of you said Saber's Edge.

Yea I love Blinded by Light. I used to like Crimson Blitz more for starting where it did, but after thinking about it a little bit Blinded Light is so much better. The fights in XIII are pretty fast so you don't always hear the payoff, but when you do it is soo much better.
