Floating Castle is the tune heard in the Floating Castle where you must fight the air fiend, Tiamat. The song begins with an organ-like voice and a bass. Then it adds another voice before ending in a downward scale.


There isn't an official English release of the song. The Japanese title uses kanji, 浮遊城 (Fuyuu Jou) which directly means "floating freely castle," which is usually translated into English as, "Floating Castle."
