JRPG games have been led by the Final Fantasy series for a very long time.
Final Fantasy is always innovative, no matter how you look at it. Square Enix is writing the next part in JRPG history. Other JRPG developers might think of making the main character’s hair a strange color.
When it comes to music, it’s the same.
There are so many classics in Final Fantasy that almost every gamer will know them.
There are epic fight themes, dramatic final boss tracks, and jingles and melodies that keep coming back, giving each installment its own “Final Fantasy” flavor.
It’s always fun to watch our favorite characters kill enemies, but what about cutting blocks to the beat of these well-known songs?

12. Final Fantasy Tactics – Antipyretic (Dissidia arr)
Within the realm of Final Fantasy Tactics, a captivating fusion of strategic warfare and intricate storytelling, the iconic composition “Antipyretic (Dissidia Arr)” takes center stage.
An epic battle hymn that resonates with the determination and resilience of its characters, this arrangement evokes the spirit of heroism and the relentless pursuit of victory.
11. Kenshi Yonezu – Tsuki wo Miteita (from FINAL FANTASY XVI)
In the mystical realm of FINAL FANTASY XVI, where breathtaking landscapes and captivating characters abound, the enchanting music of Kenshi Yonezu breathes life into the narrative.
Among the many compositions that have left an indelible mark on the hearts of players and fans alike, “Tsuki wo Miteita” stands out as a mesmerizing ode that captures the essence of this fantastical world.
10. Blinded by Light – FFXIII
Some people don’t like FFXIII because it takes the Final Fantasy series in a new direction, one that focuses more on visuals and new ideas than on traditional RPG features.
Still, it’s one of the most popular books in the series.
Lightning was such a badass that he was able to keep the whole thing going. She is still one of the most well-known figures in the FF series.
I still remember when I played FFXIII and went into fight, this song would play.
It’s something you will always remember.
Even if you don’t like the game, you have to agree that this song is pretty awesome.
And the music in FFXIII is one of the best things about it.
This song shows how tense it is to wait for your opponent’s next move, and then it breaks into a heroic fanfare.
9. Victory Fanfare (Holder & Ephixa Remix) – Final Fantasy VII
The winning sounds in Final Fantasy are well-known.
In Final Fantasy VII, the jingle seems to announce your win with trumpets and confetti, and then it changes to elevator music so you can think about the battle’s results.
The framework of this remix by Holder & Ephixa stays the same at first, but over time, they add a modern beat and play around with the sample to make the “elevator music” into something else.
As the BPM goes up, this map can get really hard, and if you’ve never heard this remix before, there are a lot of surprises in store for you.
8. Awakening (Alex Moukala Mix) – Final Fantasy XV
I can’t say enough good things about the fact that Final Fantasy XVI is going back to a more standard medieval fantasy setting.
From the trailers, we can see that Square Enix has made a dark and interesting world with a lot of violence and big fights.
If the trailer theme, “Awakening,” is any indication, this music is also good.
Remember that every time you play this Beat Saber map, we get a minute and a half closer to the release of Final Fantasy XVII, so get slicing!
7. Chocobo (Chicken-san Cover) – Final Fantasy
If there’s one song I’ll never forget, it’s the Chocobo’s theme from the first Final Fantasy (which has been changed in almost every game since).
This famous tune hasn’t changed much since it first showed up in Final Fantasy I, and it shows up in some way in every game in the series.
This version by Chicken-san is very different from the rest. After all, it’s done by a toy chicken made of rubber.
It’s silly, but Chocobos are pretty silly, so it actually works pretty well.
And if you want even more silly joke songs for Beat Saber, you can be sure that we have you covered.
6. Sight of Spira – FFX
On the other end of the seriousness scale is the song “Sight of Spira,” which will make even the most hardened Final Fantasy fan choke up.
Anyone who went through Final Fantasy X will feel a lot when they hear this song.
You wouldn’t know it from Tidus’s scene of cringe-worthy laughter, but the game is pretty sad and dark.
And Super Guitar Bros.’ version of the song on acoustic guitar is just gorgeous.
Every sound is like a warm glass of cocoa that tells me everything will be fine.
Even though you won’t feel as safe and calm when you’re furiously slicing blocks, it’s still fun to listen.
5. A Long Fall – FFXIV
Some songs are so moving and epic that you just have to dance to them.
It happened to a lot of FFXIV fans when the theme for the Twinning level in the Shadowbringers expansion was “A Long Fall.”
People started dancing to the music on Tik Tok and making jokes about it because it was so catchy.
This Beat Saber map is great if you don’t want to see yourself dancing to Final Fantasy music, but you still want to move your body to this song.
4. Sunrise (Takafumi Imamura Remix) – FFXIV
Sunrise, the theme for the boss fight against Suzaku, is another well-known FFXIV song that made people tap their feet as they changed their skills.
This remix by Takafumi Imamura takes the song to a whole new level, turning it into a fantastic electronic track that would be great for a rhythm game like Beat Saber.
It’s also one of the few songs worth playing in Final Fantasy that has words.
If you like Japanese female singing, you’ll definitely love this.
3. Those Who Fight Further (Metal Remix) – FFVII
The epic fight theme from Final Fantasy VII has been in my head for over 20 years.
I wouldn’t even notice if this was playing in the background, no matter how long or hard the fight was.
It’s exciting, but there’s also a lot of stress and fear.
You can always lose by surprise, and who knows when you last saved the game?
This metal version of this turn-based battle anthem is out of this world. As you try to get through this hard map, your energy will start pumping.
2. One-Winged Angel REBIRTH – FF7R
Final Fantasy VII Remake brought the best parts of the PS1 classic from the 1990s into the 2020s with an insane amount of production value that the original game didn’t have.
The sound track was really taken to the next level by getting rid of the old MIDI tracks and replacing them with something much more complex.
The sound quality is out of this world, and most of the songs have become more complicated and nuanced.
One-Winged Angel, the battle song for Safer-Sephiroth, was also changed and turned into a ten-minute masterpiece that was just as exciting as the original.
Imagine you’re Cloud and Sephiroth are fighting over the fate of the world, and you’ll be able to play this hard track in no time.
1. The Most Muscular (Those Who Squat) – FF7R
The most important thing that Final Fantasy VII Remake adds to the series’ music comes from an unlikely place:
The mini-game about sitting.
This crazy mini-game’s background music (BGM) has the same fast-paced energy as a hard-core indoor cycling class, but it’s actually a remix of Those Who Fight, one of the most famous fight themes in the game.
A song that was already very uplifting just got twice as good.
And maybe you won’t skip leg day at the gym as much.
