Dimensional Fortress Doh is a jingle that plays when a skilled-enough player reach the final round in Arkanoid. There you must confront the boss, Doh, who appears as a giant Moai statue. If you die while fighting Doh and still have spare lives, it will play again when the round restarts. The jingle was composed by Hisayoshi Ogura.


In the Taito Game Music album, the song is called "最終ラウンドスタート, Saishu Raundo Sutato" which translates to, "Final Round Start." However, in the Legend of Game Music 2: Platinum Box, the title is "次元要塞DOH, Jigen Yosai Doh" which translates to "Dimensional Fortress Doh."
