"Battle at the Big Bridge" (ビッグブリッジの死闘, Biggu Burijji no Shitō?, lit. Battle to the Death on the Big Bridge), also known as "Clash on the Big Bridge" or "Battle with Gilgamesh" is a recurring theme originally from Final Fantasy V. It was composed by Nobuo Uematsu in 1992.

"Battle at the Big Bridge" is a popular theme due to being the leitmotif of the recurring character Gilgamesh, an installment-traveling mascot of the series, and has been remade into different versions for several of his cameo appearances. As such, it is a theme with many arrangements and remixes, only surpassed in number by prominent motifs of the series itself, such as the "Prelude", the "Opening Theme", the "Chocobo Theme" or the "Victory Fanfare".
