List of SSBU Music (Final Fantasy series)

From SmashWiki, the Super Smash Bros. wiki
Jump to navigationJump to search

This is a list of music tracks pertaining to the Final Fantasy universe in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. All tracks listed here derive from the Compilation of Final Fantasy VII series. Unlike most remixes in Smash, the Final Fantasy remixes are owned by Square Enix instead of Nintendo. They play on Midgar, Northern Cave, and, as of the 8.1.0 update, Battlefield, Small Battlefield, Big Battlefield, and Final Destination. Downloading Sephiroth as part of Challenger Pack 8 adds nine tracks in addition to the two available in the base game.

Origin[edit]

This track is a remix of the theme that plays on the Overworld of Final Fantasy VII in Disc One, and it is also unofficially considered Cloud's theme because it, along with many of the theme's variations, seems to play whenever something significant relating to him happens during the story. As with the previous remixes, it is done in an orchestral style that resembles the remake version, but the overall feeling is more dramatic and upbeat compared to the original being calm and relaxing.

Trivia[edit]

  • At a length of six minutes and two seconds, Advent: One-Winged Angel is the longest music track in the entire Super Smash Bros. series.

Trivia[edit]

  • Before the release of Challenger Pack 8, Final Fantasy was tied with the Game & Watch universe for the fewest songs of all universes in Ultimate, and had the absolute fewest songs of its third-party universes, with only two. In Mr. Sakurai Presents "Sephiroth", Sakurai explained that the limited number of songs was due to various licensing difficulties, such as existing exclusivity deals that would not allow for music to be included, and the music copyright being spread across multiple owners, which then had to be properly cleared for each region Ultimate is available in.
    • In the Japanese version of the presentation, he specifically addressed accusations from the fans that Square Enix were being stingy with music licensing, which he strongly denied being the case.
  • Prior to the version 10.0.0 update, the Sound Test referred to the series as FINAL FANTASY VII. This was changed to refer to it as the FINAL FANTASY VII Series, due to it now including music from Advent Children.
  • Final Fantasy is the only universe in Ultimate to feature music sourced directly from media outside of a video game, as three songs are taken from the movie Final Fantasy VII: Advent Children.
    • However, both The Legend of Zelda and Sonic the Hedgehog have music pieces featured in trailers, that were not included in the actual games.
    • Coincidentally, The Legend of Zelda has a remix of its trailer theme instead of the original version, but that particular remix also quotes snippets from the original.
  • So far, not counting the Other music category, Final Fantasy, Fire Emblem and Xenoblade Chronicles are the only base game universes to receive additional songs via downloadable content.
    • Unlike Fire Emblem and similarly to Xenoblade Chronicles, the two songs from the base game are not listed before all of the DLC songs; rather, they were repositioned in the relative order that the songs would be heard in Final Fantasy VII.
  • Interestingly, the names used for the Final Fantasy VII battle themes ("Let the Battles Begin!" and "Fight On!") are inconsistent with the ones used for their Advent Children remixes ("Those Who Fight" and "Those Who Fight Further"). As mentioned, the latter are more accurate translations of the songs' Japanese names.
  • "Electric de Chocobo" from Final Fantasy VII plays in the Chocobo Mii Fighter costume reveals for both SSB4 and Ultimate, but is not available in either of the actual games.
