"Mt. Gulg" (グルグ火山, Gurugu Kazan?, lit. Gulg Volcano), originally known as "Gurgu Volcano" or "Mount Gulg"', is a prominent background theme in the original Final Fantasy. It is an iconic track of the series and has been referenced to in other games. It was composed by Nobuo Uematsu.

Game appearancesEdit

Final FantasyEdit

"Mt. Gulg" is the background theme for its eponymous location, as well as the Giant's Cave and the Cavern of Earth. It is the fifteenth track of the All Sounds of Final Fantasy I & II album.

"Mt. Gulg" was arranged by Nobuo Uematsu for the Wonderswan Color release of Final Fantasy, and this version has been used in all subsequent ports and remakes. It is the seventeenth track of Final Fantasy's original soundtrack.

Final Fantasy IXEdit

"Mount Gulug" is an arrangement of "Mount Gulg" by Nobuo Uematsu, and plays in Final Fantasy IX's Mount Gulug. It is the twenty-fifth track of the original soundtrack's third disc.

Dissidia 012 Final FantasyEdit

The original "Mount Gulg" makes an appearance in this prequel to Dissidia as ""Mt. Gulg -original-" from FINAL FANTASY I", which is the fourth track of the soundtrack's first disc. It can be bought from the PP Catalog with 240 PP.

After being purchased, it can be selected by default in any battle including the Warrior of Light, Garland or the Chaos Shrine.

Theatrhythm Final FantasyEdit

"Mount Gulg" appears in the Nintendo 3DS version of Theatrhythm Final Fantasy as a bonus Field track from the Chaos Scores. In order to be played, It must first be found in a dark note.

In the iOS version of the game, "Mount Gulg" can be downloaded as part of Final Fantasy's Field Music Basic Bundle, as well as the game's "Main Theme" and "Matoya's Cave".

"Mount Gulg" is a particular exception in the songs available, as all the other included songs are in their original form, but the "Mount Gulg" theme in Theatrhythm is the arrangement for the Wonderswan Color and PlayStation releases, because the original NES "Gurgu Volcano" was too short.[1]
