Game: Final Fantasy VII Song: Cait Sith's Theme Composer: Nobuo Uematsu
Above: Cait Sith's Theme
Today, we celebrate Cait Sith, one of the strangest Final Fantasy characters of all time. The tiny robot cat is known for riding a giant, robot moogle and speaking in a distinctive Scottish accent. But we remember him most for his mischievous ways in Final Fantasy VII when it was revealed that he was hired to spy on Cloud’s gang.
But Cait Sith’s sneakiness didn’t end there. The Scottish, robot spy later switches sides and becomes a double agent, volunteering to sacrifice himself to collect Black Materia for the greater good from the Temple of the Ancients.
Like the character, Cait Sith’s theme is weird in all the right ways. We love the way it matches his mysterious nature. Have a listen to the slinky rhythm that wobbles all over the place, like a drunken Moogle stumbling home after a long night of drinking at the bar.
