We Are the Champions: Final Live in Japan is a live concert video of English rock band Queen's performance at the Yoyogi National Gymnasium, Tokyo on 11 May 1985 as part of the Japanese leg of The Works Tour.

The film's title is slightly inaccurate, as Queen actually performed two more shows in Japan (in Nagoya on 13 May, and in Osaka on the 15th). The 90-minute film is not the full concert, leaving out Brian May's guitar solo and Dragon Attack. The video is also edited for time by cutting away setup waits between songs.

Only officially released in Japan, it first appeared as a video release in 1992, then as a laserdisc release, before a DVD release in 2004 with new artwork, and a 2006 under the title Live in Japan 1985.[1][2] The concert footage has not been studio-corrected to remove errors in sound, unlike other Queen concert video releases.

It features an extensive synth playing.
