Trouble with the audio sample?
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!

"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.
