The opening songs of my playlist are represented by this story-driven 3-line quote.

"He" refers to Starscourge Radahn. It is a permanent track in this story.

The playlist currently has 2 phases:

Phase 1 starts with the opening "Dare to Defy" (track #01)

Phase 2 starts with the Dissidia trailer (around track #50)

A part of "Dare to Defy" can be heard inside the trailer. Both are from Dissidia Final Fantasy NT.
