The Oracle is a highly remixed version of Ceremony to make it seem much more sinister. It plays during your final confrontation with Thantos at the end of the Mana Fortress.

This song is track 37 on the official soundtrack.

Parts of this song have been remixed into The Sacrifice, Part I and The Sacrifice, Part II for Seiken Densetsu 3 (SNES).
