The Forbidden Land, Eureka is an optional dungeon in the game Final Fantasy III which contains some of the best equipment in the game. A gateway to it can be found at the bottom floor of the Crystal Tower, but the Eureka Key is required. Doga and Unei unlock the Eureka Key, and give it to the Warriors of the Light, granting them access to Eureka, knowing they need better equipment to fight Xande. This equipment was sealed away long ago because considered too powerful for humans to behold.

The shops of Eureka.

In the final area of Eureka the player can find three shopkeepers selling some of the best spells, summons, and equipment in the game. It is also worth noting that this is the only place where Shuriken can be purchased, though at a ridiculously high price.

Eureka has its own exclusive background theme, originally translated "Forbidden Land" in the Original Sound Version, but was retconned as "Forbidden Land Eureka" (禁断の地エウレカ, Kindan no Chi Eureka?) in the Original Soundtrack. It is available as a battle background music for Dissidia 012 Final Fantasy as part of a downloadable content pack of three tracks from Final Fantasy III. It is also a Field Music Sequence in Theatrhythm Final Fantasy All-Star Carnival.

Hmm... It occurs to me that no one bothered to tell you the name of the island we mean to explore. Am I correct? It's a bit grandiose and melodramatic, but we've tentatively named it for a place from Allagan legend. A forbidden land where fearsome weapons were hidden away for safekeeping... We call it...Eureka.
—Krile Mayer Baldesion

Added in Patch 4.25 "Rise of a New Sun," The Forbidden Land, Eureka, is an instanced area that up to 144 players can explore simultaneously. Though it pulls from Final Fantasy III in its name and in the concept of an extensive side area you can explore, the plot primarily includes references to Final Fantasy V. The player works with Krile to find out what happened to the Students of Baldesion after the disappearance of the Isle of Val, complete with flashbacks involving her grandfather.

Final Fantasy Tactics Edit

This once prosperous capital of the Kashka Dynasty was destroyed in the Cataclysm, along with the vast legacy of its royal family. It is now a necrohol, populated by spirits drawn to the shades of its past glory.
