Castle Exnine is a dungeon located at The Ends of Grymoire in World of Final Fantasy and is the final dungeon. It is reached by using the Teleport Device beneath the castle itself at The Ends of Grymoire. It is visited in Chapter 21, "Chaos in Grymoire".

Story[]

Impresario-ffvi-ios.pngThis section in World of Final Fantasy is empty or needs to be expanded. You can help the Final Fantasy Wiki by expanding it.

Condition[]

A powerful threshold encompasses the entire castle. If the player's entire party falls in any battle in this dungeon, they will not be transported back to Nine Wood Hills, and will receive a Game Over.

Navigation[]

The player traverses the castle by climbing up and down the giant cubical crystals in the rooms, in the same manner as some structures in The Sunken Temple. Pulling up the map does not show anything, but the souls swimming through the pipes connected to the crystals may help guide the player in the right direction. Several areas contain Save Crystals and purple Warp Crystals that will take the player back to the castle's entrance.

Eventually, the player will come across dead ends in some areas, but the areas will always have the Carbuncle that accompanied the three Heralds. Defeating it makes pathways materialize, and allow the player to proceed further through the castle.
