If all four of your party members die, you'll hear the Dead Music. The tune has the downbeat you'd expect from a game over theme.


There isn't an official English release of the song. The Japanese title uses katakana, デッドミュージック (Deddo Myujikku). Which directly translates into English as "Dead Music."
