The Depths of the True Moon is part of the final dungeon of Final Fantasy IV: The After Years, being accessed from the Subterrane and leading to the Bottommost Depths where the final battle with The Creator takes place. Unlike the Subterrane which appeared as a series of caves, the Depths appears as a technological area, reflecting the True Moon's status as an ancient space vessel for The Creator.

The Depths consists of twenty-nine floors filled with powerful enemies (thirteen floors in the mobile releases), as well as a number of Crystals that release bosses when interacted with. These bosses consist of famous bosses from the first six Final Fantasy games. Four of these bosses—Omega, Nova Dragon, Deathgaze and Ultima Weapon—serve as optional superbosses.

As with the Subterrane, the player will be allowed to rest and recover for free the first time they come across a save point. Provided the proper characters have been imported from other tales, a scene will occur at this time that may result in a new Band ability being learned. At the 20th floor (4th floor in the mobile versions) the party faces the Mysterious Girl and Bahamut, at which point the player must have Rydia in the party or else Bahamut will instantly use Mega Flare to kill the party when the battle begins.

Several floors regularly contain access to the interdimensional elevator where the player can ascend to the surface or change their party. Such an access can be found on the first floor of the area, along with a Namingway shop, a save point, and a special tile that will heal the party when stepped on.
