"Jenova" serves as the eponymous battle theme for Jenova, and can be heard during the encounters with Jenova∙BIRTH and Jenova∙DEATH. When fighting Jenova∙LIFE, "Aerith's Theme" is played instead, and when fighting Jenova∙SYNTHESIS, "Jenova Absolute" is played. "J-E-N-O-V-A" is also played during the battle with Professor Hojo.
When the theme shifts to the major mode for the "fanfare" section just before it starts over, the chord progression is either identical to or a transposition of the second half of the Prelude, depending on the relative keys of the two themes.
"Jenova" is the sixteenth track of the Final Fantasy VII: Original Soundtrack's second disc.
