Within the piece can be heard a medley of boss themes throughout the game, including "Flash of Steel", "Discord [Imperial Version]", and "Life and Death", as well as the continuous riff of the "The Archadian Empire" and the Final Fantasy XIImain theme; which is most prominent in the song's climax.
"Struggle for Freedom - Original" is the the tenth track on disc 2 of the soundtrack. This version cuts the lengthy intro from the original version. It can be purchased for 240 PP from the PP Catalog.
The theme appears during the main storyline during the final duel between Vaan and Kefka, and in Shantotto's battle against Gabranth.
