FFVIII - Premonition
Trouble with the audio sample?

"Premonition" is a battle theme from Final Fantasy VIII. It was composed by Nobuo Uematsu. It shares much of the same central melody as the game's opening theme, "Liberi Fatali". It also features a reference to the main theme of Final Fantasy VII, the first five notes of that theme are repeated twice in the opening section.

Final Fantasy VIIIEdit

VIII The word "premonition" means "a forewarning" or "a feeling of anticipation of or anxiety over a future event", referring to the central theme of fate where the SeeD are set to face off with Ultimecia, an antagonistic sorceress from the future.
