The final boss battle in Ocarina of Time is both one of the most recognizable final battles in all of video games and one of the most epic. One of the things that makes the battle so memorable isn’t the size or scope of the fight, which was huge in scale for its time, but the music. It draws you in and mesmerizes you, summing up a 30-plus hour experience in a short 10 minutes as Link battles his way to save Hyrule against the evil Ganon, no transformed by the Triforce of Power.
While I am biased in saying that Ocarina of Time is my favorite Zelda title, I do believe that the final confrontation between Link and Ganon still holds up as one of the greatest final boss battles of all time, and this is in no short part due to the music that helps sum up Link’s journey. That is why today’s pick for Music Monday is the final boss theme found in Ocarina of Time by Koji Kondo.
