|"Battle" from Final Fantasy VI.|
|Trouble with the audio sample?|
- “The main battle theme of FFVI. From the familiar intro, the drums crash in and trumpets soar in this rock-inspired and fiery battle song!”
- —Theatrhythm Final Fantasy description
"Battle" plays as the background theme in most random encounters, and first plays in the forced encounters with the Guards in Narshe. It was released as the fifth track of the first disc of the Final Fantasy VI: Original Sound Version; and of the Kefka's Domain - The complete soundtrack from the Final Fantasy III video game album.
An arrangement of this theme by Takeharu Ishimoto named "Battle 1 -arrange- from FINAL FANTASY VI" appears as a battle theme. It is the twenty-fourth track of the Dissidia 012 Final Fantasy Original Soundtrack's first disc.
