Similar to The Art of War, the predominant feature of this track is its percussion section. It follows a more traditional, militant marching band aesthetic, with some passing accompaniment from the other instruments. The piano follows a low, unresolved arpeggio, used to build tension throughout the song. Similarly, the woodwind plays a melody extremely similar to the one from Playing With Danger, giving the song not only consistency with the other tracks but also heightening the feeling of conflict. Overall, the tension from these two instruments gives the song its pre-fight feel; the song blends the tension with hints of power to create a very motivating sound. This sound builds with the horn section, finally resolving on one last chord. Although not present in the song itself, this is typically followed by the Main Theme (or its flourish as used by other tracks as well).
