"Not Alone" (独りじゃない, Hitori ja nai?, lit. ""You're Not Alone"") is a musical theme from Final Fantasy IX. It was composed by Nobuo Uematsu. The song is named after the events taking place while it plays in its game of origin. The theme then became associated with the game's protagonist, Zidane Tribal, and a popular theme among fans, and was subsequentely arranged and included in live performances several times.
"Not Alone" plays continuously during the various battles and events at Terra's Castle Pandemonium in Disc 3, where Zidane's friends support him in the battles against Pandemonium's guards while he consistently commands them to leave him on his own, after Garland reveals to Zidane his origins and purpose as an Angel of Death.
