FFXIII - Fighting Fate
Trouble with the audio sample?
This battle music plays during the fight against Barthandelus in FFXIII. The rage of the orchestra and the solemnity of the chorus befit his pomp and nihilism.
Theatrhythm Final Fantasy description

"Fighting Fate" (宿命への抗い, Shukumei e no Aragai?) is a boss theme from Final Fantasy XIII and is associated with Barthandelus. It was composed by Masashi Hamauzu.

Game AppearancesEdit

Final Fantasy XIIIEdit

"Fighting Fate" is the battle theme for the battles of all three incarnations of Barthandelus. It explicitly references the intent of Galenth Dysley to use the l'Cie as his tools to bring about Ragnarok, an incarnation of wrath, so as to destroy Cocoon. It is the seventeenth track of the third disc of the game's Original Soundtrack.

Notably, Barthandelus recites its lyrics while under the guise of Serah at Oerba, and adds "Make of this day a brave epoch. Deliver the Divine, Ragnarok". In Latin, it is "Creo dies tempo fortis. Vindico divinum, Ragnarok".

A version without the chorus plays as the main characters are chased by Yaag Rosch while escaping the Palamecia. It was included on the Original Soundtrack PLUS album.

Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIIIEdit

"Fighting Fate" is incorporated in the the game's final boss theme, "Almighty Bhunivelze", and also plays in levels 30-33 of the Ultimate Lair.

Ragnarok de Dies Irae
l'Cie Pultis. Tuum fatum sequeris. Sanctuarium tuum affligeas
Ragnarok de Dies Irae
l'Cie Pultis. Tuum fatum sequeris. Sanctuarium tuum affligeas
Per somnum aeternum
Numen divinum dictus est
Viator elamentabilis

Ragnarok, come Day of Wrath
O Pulse l'Cie. Embrace thy fate, thine home to burn.
