"CRISIS CORE Theme" (Theme of CRISIS CORE, ?) is name of the main theme of Crisis Core -Final Fantasy VII-, and was composed by Takeharu Ishimoto. It is the most prominent theme of the game, due to playing in significant moments, including the title screen and final battle, and appearing in said game through nine different versions, all having this title as a prefix.

This said, the original "CRISIS CORE Theme" was only released on a special disc that attendees of the 2007 Square Enix Party received.

  • "CRISIS CORE Theme - With Pride" (Theme of CRISIS CORE『誇りと共に』, Theme of CRISIS CORE『Hokori Totomoni』?) is another piano arrangement of the theme. It plays when Genesis reveals his black wing in Banora, and when Zack talks with Angeal on the Sector 0 Highway in Midgar. It is the twenty-fourth track of the first disc of the game's original soundtrack.
  • "CRISIS CORE Theme - Truth About the Project" (Theme of CRISIS CORE『計画の真実』, Theme of CRISIS CORE『Keikaku no Shinjitsu』?) is a fast paced version performed by quartet featuring, violin, viola, cello, and piano.

It is the twenty-ninth track of the first disc of the game's original soundtrack.
  • "CRISIS CORE Theme - New Assignment" (Theme of CRISIS CORE『新たな任地へ』, Theme of CRISIS CORE『Arata na Ninchi he』?) is another string arrangement of the theme and plays on the SOLDIER Floor before Zack's fateful mission to Nibelheim. It is the fourth track of the second disc of the game's original soundtrack.
  • "A Brief Rest" (しばしの休息, Shibashi no Kyuusoku?) is a music box-like variation of the "CRISIS CORE Theme". It plays after Zack decides to "crash for the night" in the Nibelheim Inn. It is the eighth track on the soundtrack's second disc.
  • "CRISIS CORE Theme - Blazing Through the Battlefield" (Theme of CRISIS CORE『疾走の戦域』, Theme of CRISIS CORE『Shissou no Seniki』?) is an hard-rock arrangement of Theme of CRISIS CORE which features electric guitar and drums, and plays during Zack's battle with G Eraser at the LOVELESS Avenue and during the Virtual Training Room flashback, when Genesis decides to fight Sephiroth alone.
