"Dungeon" from Final Fantasy (Dawn of Souls)
FF Dungeon Theme
Trouble with the audio sample?

A dungeon theme is a theme that plays during many of a game's dungeons. Many of the earlier games in the series, simply called this theme "Dungeon", still varying from game to game.

The presence of this track is somewhat exclusive to early titles of the series, where space restrictions did not allow a great variety in sounds. More recent titles now have a different theme for each dungeon, or dungeons that share a greater amount of tracks.

I "Dungeon" can be heard at the Marsh Cave and the Mirage Tower, and also in some floors of the Soul of Chaos dungeons and the Labyrinth of Time. In fact, two other tracks are shared by the dungeons: "Matoya's Cave" and "Gurgu Volcano."

Of these themes, "Matoya's Cave" also appears as a remixed arrangement in Dissidia 012 Final Fantasy as the Warrior of Light's dungeon theme.

Final Fantasy Record KeeperEdit

FFRK The dungeon theme is determined by the area in play. All original tracks from each game are used in highlighting each Record's significance to the series as a whole. Once a player enters a battle round, however, the theme will switch over to a source game's battle theme and, if appropriate, the boss theme of the area in play. As battle themes did not exist in Final Fantasy XII, its associated Records will continue to play the area themes instead, switching to boss themes where applicable.
