The Cave of the Gi, also known as the Sealed Cave (封印の洞窟, Fūin no Dōkutsu?), is a dungeon in the depths of Cosmo Canyon in Final Fantasy VII. It is a shadow-filled cavern where malevolent spirits of the Gi tribe dwell, littered with traps of various kinds. There are mini caves with switches inside that must be broken to advance, and large spider webs that block the paths that cause fights with the enemy Stinger. It is possible to glitch through one of the webs, thus avoiding a fight with the Stinger, though it rarely happens.

The cave is the only dungeon in the game where floor damage can be incurred. A pre-production concept had the player able to obtain a Materia to negate floor damage, but it was removed in development.


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

Red XIII pays his respects to his father.

Years before the start of Final Fantasy VII, Nanaki's father, Seto, was the guardian of Cosmo Canyon. The Gi tribe attempted to destroy the peaceful canyon by attacking through the Cave of the Gi. Seto fought them off, but was killed in Cosmo Canyon's defense and turned to stone by poisoned arrows. Nanaki considered his father a coward for abandoning his mother and him.

During Final Fantasy VII, Cloud Strife and his party come to Cosmo Canyon with Red XIII and meet with Bugenhagen. The party descends into the Cave of the Gi with Bugenhagen to show Red XIII the truth of his father. They fight their way through the cave, but come upon a ghostly site. The ghosts of the Gi tribe have been brought back in the form of the angry spirit, Gi Nattak. The ghost is beaten, and Red XIII sees the stone figure of his father up on the cliff, realizing his father was a hero, and decides to continue journeying with Cloud's party.

Spoilers end here.
