Kefka Chibi II
Trouble with the audio sample?

"Kefka" (魔導士ケフカ, Madōshi Kefuka?, lit. Magic-user Kefka) is the theme of Kefka Palazzo in Final Fantasy VI. It was composed by Nobuo Uematsu.

The theme begins with a light, bouncing beat using wind and string instruments, but eventually the background drumbeats and cymbals become more prominent and the theme becomes louder and more dramatic, perhaps a reflection of Kefka's rise to power or his further descent into insanity.

Game appearancesEdit

Final Fantasy VIEdit

"Kefka" plays frequently during the first part of the game, accompanying Kefka's appearances, and during the party's confrontation with him before the final battle. Its motif is also partially included in the final part of Dancing Mad.

"Kefka" is the ninth track of the game's soundtrack's first disc.
