- “The battle theme used in FFIX's final showdown. The eerie tune of the organ is accompanied only by the moans of the pained—then the real action starts!”
- —Theatrhythm Final Fantasy description.
"The Final Battle" (最後の闘い, Saigo no Tatakai?) is the final boss theme from Final Fantasy IX. It was composed by Nobuo Uematsu, and is mostly known for its distinguished introduction, featuring a moaning chorus.
An arrangement of "The Final Battle" by Keiji Kawamori labeled "The Final Battle -arrange-" from FINAL FANTASY IX" appears in the prequel to Dissidia as a battle theme. Its main difference from the original track is the absence of its signature opening. It was released as the thirty-eight track of the game's Original Soundtrack.
"The Final Battle" is available as a downloadable track for the iOS version of Theatrhythm. It can be downloaded as part of Final Fantasy IX's Basic Bundle Battle Music, as well as the game's "Battle 1".
