There's something to be said for consistency, and the Final Fantasy series has always delivered. For Final Fantasy VII, Oematsu wrote "One-Winged Angel" as the final battle's theme. It was the first song in the franchise to have lyrics, and they were sung in Latin, which can make anything sound exciting. When a song begins with, "Burning inside / With violent anger," you know you're in for an epic ride.
