The Big Bridge is a location in Final Fantasy V on the second and third worlds, though only accessible in the second world, as it serves as a passage between the mainland and the Island Shrine in the third world.

Story[edit | edit source]

Spoiler warning: Plot and/or ending details follow. (Skip section)

Gilgamesh is waiting on the Big Bridge.

After Galuf breaks his friends out of Castle Exdeath they cross the Big Bridge teeming with monsters. Halfway, Gilgamesh attacks them, casts support spells on himself as a last resort, but loses regardless and runs off. Unfortunately, Exdeath activates the Barrier Towers before they could reach the other side, which sends them all the way to Gloceana.

After the skirmish enemies stop appearing on the bridge and in the Merged World it appears right where the Island Shrine is, allowing the party to enter.

Spoilers end here.
