"Terra's Theme" (ティナのテーマ, Tina no Tēma?), also known as "Terra" or "Tina", is the official name of Terra Branford's theme, which is also the main theme of Final Fantasy VI. It was composed by Nobuo Uematsu.
"Terra's Theme" is the overworld theme of the World of Balance.
Being the game's main theme, it is also reused for other themes of its soundtrack, including "Omen", the theme for the game's opening; "Awakening", which plays at Narshe when Terra regains consciousness from the control of the Gesthalian army, on the overworld map when she flees Figaro Castle with Edgar and Locke, at the Returner Hideout when she is asked to join the Returner cause, at Zozo, when Terra is awakened by Ramuh and when she later remembers her origins, and at Mobliz, both when Terra stays back from the fighting and later when she rejoins the party.
Its motif is included in "Save the Espers!", which plays at the battle with the Ten Moogles and the Imperial Army for Terra at the Narshe Mines, at the Battle for the Frozen Esper and during the escape from the Magitek Research Facility; and in the game's "Ending Theme" from 7:46 to 8:20, and later at 16:46.
