Final Fantasy XV Logo
XV Somnus
Trouble with the audio sample?
The title of this song, played during the trailer for FF Versus XIII, means 'sleep,' but there is nothing restful about the forceful vocals singing of coming war.
Theatrhythm Final Fantasy description

"Somnus" is the main theme for Final Fantasy XV. The song first appeared in the first trailer for the game. It was included on the album Drammatica by Yoko Shimomura, the composer for the Kingdom Hearts series and Legend of Mana.

The song opens with a piano playing a rather sad melody, followed by a vocal part sung by Aundréa L. Hopkins[1] in Latin, much like other famous songs from the Final Fantasy series.


Latin LyricsEdit

Deus dormit
Et liberi ignem faciunt
Numquam extinguunt
Ne expergisci possit
Omnia dividit
Tragedia coram
Amandum quae
Et nocte perpetua
In desperatione
Auroram videre potest
Mane tempus expergiscendi.

English TranslationEdit

God sleeps
And children light a flame
That never extinguished
But he will never awake
Separate everything,
This tragedy destroys,
every beloved thing.
And in this endless night,
In despair
He may see the dawn
That will awake him in the next morning

Game appearancesEdit

Final Fantasy XV Episode DuscaeEdit

An arrangement of "Somnus" featuring a solo violin is used on the title screen of Final Fantasy XV Episode Duscae.

Theatrhythm Final FantasyEdit

Somnus is a DLC Field Music Sequence song for Theatrhythm Final Fantasy, and the background featured is of a large city, similar to the one seen in several trailers for the game. It is the only song out of the 52 DLC tracks that doesn't appear for the iOS version, and the only song not to return in the sequel, Theatrhythm Final Fantasy Curtain Call.


[view  · edit  · purge]Somnus is the Latin word for "sleep", and the personification of sleep. Somnus is also the Roman god associated with sleep, his Greek counterpart being Hypnos. This is a possible reference to the game logo, which is an image of a sleeping woman.
