Trouble with the audio sample?

The original releases of the game had no boss theme of any kind, and so the battle with Chaos used the normal battle theme. However, in the Origins, Dawn of Souls and Anniversary remakes, a final boss theme was produced for the final battle, which is titled "Last Battle".

Final Fantasy II

In the original NES release, the Emperor used the same boss theme as all other bosses, called "Battle Scene 2." However, in every remake after the Origins release, two boss battle themes were produced for normal bosses, and "Battle Scene 2" was used as the final battle theme.

Final Fantasy III

Main article: Battle to the Death (Final Fantasy III)

The theme plays during the battle with the Cloud of Darkness. In some remixes of the theme on soundtracks, the theme is titled "Kurayaminokumo," which literally translates into English as "Cloud of Darkness".

Zeromus is reused in Final Fantasy IV: The After Years during the battle with Zeromus's Malice.

Final Fantasy IV: The After Years

Four songs play during the final battle with the Creator. One is for the first phase of the fight which is against the Creator's core, and is also used during the scripted section of the Creator's final form. The theme which plays in the second battle is also the theme used for the lowest section of the Depths (which is a remix of the Maenad's theme). The third plays during the Creator's third form and is entirely original. The last plays for the Creator's final form after the scripted section. It is a remix of both the Creator's third form's music and the main theme of Final Fantasy IV.

The first final boss theme to have its own specific name, Dancing Mad is divided into four parts, each of which plays during the battle with one of the tiers of enemies leading up to Kefka, the final boss of the game.

Technically, the final boss of Final Fantasy X is Yu Yevon, and he has his own theme "Decisive Battle." However, due to it being impossible to lose to Yu Yevon short of creatively killing yourself, Braska's Final Aeon is widely considered the true final boss of the game. The song that plays during the battle is Otherworld, which also plays during the opening FMV of the game.
