Arrangement Tsutomu Narita

Time to Fight! (Definitive Edition ver.) is Track 2 on the Xenoblade Chronicles: Definitive Edition Sound Selection and and Disc 1, Track 7 on the Xenoblade Definitive Edition Original Soundtrack and the Xenoblade Chronicles Original Soundtrack Trinity Box.

It is a rerecording of the original with slightly altered balance, mixing, and orchestration, and added accompaniment lines such as a violin line at 0:56. Unlike the original's ending fadeout, this version has a clear ending (only heard on the Sound Selection).

It mostly plays in the same situations as the original, except that it does not play during the fight against the Orluga Rufus, in which An Obstacle in Our Path plays instead. It also does not play on the Bionis' Shoulder.

In Xenoblade Chronicles 3: Future Redeemed, this is the main battle theme for enemies in Yesterdale. It is also the standard battle theme in base Xenoblade Chronicles 3 when Shulk is set as the party's Hero.

In Tetris 99[edit]

In Tetris 99, if the player uses the Definitive Edition themed skin, the Definitive Edition rearranged version of Time to Fight! plays as the background music in-game when there are between 99 and 51 players remaining.


  • The Japanese name for Time to Fight! literally translates as 'Battle!'. This began a trend continued in Xenoblade Chronicles 2 with Battle!! and in Future Redeemed with New Battle!!!, in which the standard battle theme has a similar name with increasing numbers of exclamation marks.
  • The English name for Time to Fight! (Bionis' Shoulder) is clearly taken from this track. The Japanese name, (たたか)いの (きざみ), can somewhat-literally be translated as 'time to fight', meaning it was likely inspired by Time to Fight!'s English name rather than its Japanese name.
