Game appearancesEdit

Final Fantasy VIIEdit

The "Main Theme of Final Fantasy VII" plays while the party travels on the overworld before the Meteor is summoned, but as the game's main theme, its motif is heard in many instances throughout the story. Its variations are the tracks "Holding My Thoughts into my Heart", which plays when the party leaves Midgar and at Mt. Corel, as well as in several towns; "Steal The Tiny Bronco!", which plays during the sequence at Rocket Town where the party acquires the Tiny Bronco; "On That Day, 5 Years Ago", which plays during the Nibelheim Incident flashback; and the airship theme, "Highwind takes to the Skies". The melody of the main theme is also included in the game's ending theme, "Staff Roll". Bits of the main theme melody also play in the background of "Under the Rotting Pizza", which is the theme of the Midgar Slums, and in "Who... Am I?" that plays during times Cloud questions his identity. The main theme melody plays late into the "The North Cave" track, that plays in the Whirlwind Maze of the Northern Crater and on the overworld after Meteor has been summoned. The main theme is also part of the ending when "The Planet's Crisis" plays; many themes appear in "The Planet's Crisis" as it plays during the game's final cutscene of the game. The main theme is played twice: first at 1:13, (alongside "Tifa's Theme"), then at 5:00, with a quiet piano while the characters talk.

In Nibelheim, the melody of the theme can be played on the piano in Tifa's house. By doing this during the flashback sequence on disc 1, and again during disc 2 or 3 when Tifa is in the party, the player can obtain her ultimate Limit Break.

"Main Theme of Final Fantasy VII" is the first track of the second disc of the Final Fantasy VII: Original Soundtrack. "Holding My Thoughts into my Heart" is the nineteenth track of the soundtrack's first disc; "On That Day, 5 Years Ago", is the fourth track of the soundtrack's second disc; "Steal The Tiny Bronco!" is the eight track of the third disc of the soundtrack; "The Highwind Takes To The Skies" is the third track of the fourth disc of the soundtrack; "Under the Rotting Pizza" is the fourteenth track of the first disc; "Who... Am I?" is the twenty-third track of the third disc; "The North Cave" is the twenty-first track of the third disc; and "The Planet's Crisis" is the seventeenth track of the fourth disc of the soundtrack; with "Staff Roll" as the final track.

Many fans consider the game's main theme to also be Cloud's character theme, given that it, along with many of the theme's variations, seems to play whenever something significant relating to him happens during the story.
