Breath of Fire Wiki

The Battle Begins is a song that appears in the original Breath of Fire. The game's lead composer, Yasuaki Fujita, credited himself as the composer of this track on his personal blog on June 11, 2011.[1]

It is the first of two normal battle themes in Breath of Fire. This one plays during random enemy encounters starting from the beginning of the game. However, it is replaced by Battling after the player gains control of Gobi following the sinking of the ship from Auria.

The title of the track was initially fan-translated as "Beginning of Battle", before Capcom officially titled it "The Battle Begins" with the release of the Breath of Fire I - III Original Soundtrack Collection on the Capcom Store.
