About

Those Who Fight Further (Japanese: 更に闘う者達, Sarani Tatakau Monotachi) is one of the popular soundtracks of the J-RPG series Final Fantay.

Similar to Clash on the Big Bridge, Decisive Battle and J-E-N-O-V-A, this song is also a popular subject of covers by numerous audio and instrumental remixes. The song has also been one of the standard music resources of MAD videos on the Japanese video sharing service Nico Nico Douga (NND).

Origin

“Those Who Fight Further” is the normal boss theme song in Final Fantasy VII which was first released in Japan in 1997.[1] As same as other Final Fantasy series songs, it was written by the Japanese video game composer Nobuo Uematsu.[2]



Since it gains a large popularity among fans, its arranged version have been included to several subsequent spin-off titles in the series : Final Fantasy VII Advent Children_[3], Crisis Core: Final Fantasy VII[4], Dissidia Final Fantasy[5] and Theatrhythm Final Fantasy.[6]

Spread

Reflecting the popularity, many fan works are created and have been posted to the video sharing services since the middle of 2000s. In particular, its fast and complex melody is a popular subject of playing covers among guitarists and keyboardists. Besides, it had been quite often reused in parody videos in the early days of the MAD phenomena on NND. One of the earliest MADs in this series was a derivative of Billy Herrington’s Gachimuchi Remixes, which was posted on March 6th, 2008.[7]
