    Default Favorite Battle Themes in XIII Trilogy

    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.

    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!

    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 - (SPOILER)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.

    "One-Winged Angel" is far and away the best final boss song ever

    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.

    Clash on the Big Bridge(XIII-2 version):

    Too bad I couldn't fight him because he was put behind a pay wall .
    "I'm seeing it clearer/Hating the picture in the mirror/They claim we inferior/So why the f**k these devils fear ya?/I'm watching my nation die genocide the cause/Expect a blood bath/The aftermath is y'alls/I told ya last album, we need help cause we dying/Give us a chance, help us advance cause we trying/Ignore my whole plea, watching us in disgust/And then they beg when my guns bust/They don't give a f**k about us" 2pac ft. Outlawz- "They Don't Give a F**k About Us"

    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.
