30. The Man With The Machine Gun (Final Fantasy VIII)
http://youtu.be/3jho-peCAKs An upbeat battle theme that acts as a refreshing alternative to the game's rather dull standard battle music, much like how its subject, Laguna, is a refreshing alternative to the initially dull Squall.
29. Dark Messenger (Final Fantasy IX)
http://youtu.be/cG5ytxBy0mA A blend of different musical styles that suit the chaotic scenario of one of the game's final boss fights, in which it is played.
28. Trisection (Final Fantasy Tactics)
http://youtu.be/rVrQv36YFgg One of Tactics' many battle themes, and the best of the lot, bringing to life both the tension and determination of a battle at the same time.
