Crystal World, final dungeon in Final Fantasy IX.

Final dungeons (ラストダンジョン, rasuto danjon?) are locations where the final battles in the Final Fantasy series take place, generally in a large, twisting dungeon that has some of the game's most powerful enemies. They are usually the last area visited in a game. More often than not, the strongest equipment in the game can be found there, as well. The game's final boss awaits at the end of the dungeon.

List of final dungeons[]

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

Final Fantasy[]

Chaos Shrine of the Past.

The Chaos Shrine is the site of the battle with Garland at the beginning of the game. As part of his pact with the Four Fiends, Garland is sent 2,000 years into the past to become Chaos. The shrine's location is significant, as it lies in the geographic center of the four elemental shrines that house the Crystals.

Using the restored Crystals to channel a Dark Crystal in the shrine's ruins in the present, the Warriors of Light travel back in time to when the shrine is restored and journey into its basement levels to defeat the Four Fiends again and destroy Chaos.

Final Fantasy II[]


Pandaemonium is the capital of Hell, buried in the earth by the Ultima spell centuries ago to prevent a swarm of demons from invading the land. It is raised to earth by the Emperor when he conquers Hell and rises where Palamecia Castle stood in the mountains. Firion and his party traverse the Jade Passage to enter Pandaemonium from underground and climb to the castle's highest floor where the Emperor awaits to battle them.

In the Soul of Rebirth bonus storyline, the castle of heaven, Arubboth, is where the Light Emperor is fought. It is a mirror image of Pandaemonium with a gold and pink color scheme to contrast Pandaemonium's violet and blue.

Final Fantasy III[]

Luneth in the World of Darkness.

The World of Darkness is the site of the final battle with the Cloud of Darkness. After Luneth and his friends climb the Crystal Tower to kill Xande, the Cloud of Darkness appears, summoned by the imbalance of light and darkness Xande has created by destroying the Crystals.

The Warriors of Light enter the portal to the Dark World that appears and free the Warriors of Darkness from the four Crystals of the Dark World. The Warriors of Darkness use their power to render the Cloud of Darkness vulnerable, and the Warriors of Light defeat her and cast her back into The Void.

Final Fantasy IV[]

Kain in the Lunar Subterrane.

The Lunar Subterrane is the path that leads to the Red Moon's core. It is accessible via a teleport pad in the Crystal Palace powered by the moon's eight Crystals. At the moon's core, the Lunarians sleep along with Zemus. The path contains many weapons that once endangered the Lunarians' lives, guarded by Zemus's minions. Cecil and his friends journey to the core to assist Golbez and Fusoya in battling Zemus, whose hatred manifests as Zeromus upon his death.

Final Fantasy IV: The After Years[]

The True Moon is a gigantic final dungeon composed of three sections: the 13-floors long Subterrane where several bosses from Final Fantasy IV are fought (the first floors of this area mirror the Lunar Subterrane); the 29-floors long Depths and the widest section of the True Moon's underground where bosses from Final Fantasy to Final Fantasy VI are fought; and the Bottommost Depths, the final floor, where the Creator resides.

Final Fantasy V[]

Lenna in the Interdimensional Rift.

The Interdimensional Rift is the gap between dimensions where the Void was sealed, and where Exdeath has gone to seize control of its power. The Rift is a mismatched maze of architecture, including locations consumed by the Void and is full of powerful monsters, including members of the Demons of the Rift.

After Bartz and his friends traverse the Rift's outer layers they find its deepest part a series of crystalline platforms. At the end they destroy Exdeath's true form and the monstrous Neo Exdeath.

Final Fantasy VI[]

Kefka's Tower is Kefka's lair, his monument to death and destruction. The tower is built out of rubble collected from around the world and assembled by magic during the cataclysm.

Terra and her friends assault the tower from the air and destroy the Triad before fighting Kefka's god form.

Though not the location of the final battle, the Shinra Building (and Hojo's lab in particular) more closely resembles earlier final dungeons, containing strong enemies, several bosses, and the potential to strengthen the party in preparation for the final encounter, as well as several points of no return.

Final Fantasy VIII[]

Ultimecia Castle.

Ultimecia, in all her forms, is fought atop Ultimecia Castle by Squall and his party. The castle is a luxurious estate sealed in a magical barrier that voids the party's command abilities, resurrection and Limit Breaks until the bosses roaming the castle are killed.

Final Fantasy XI[]

Castle Zvahl.

Due to the non-linear nature of Final Fantasy XI, there is no true final dungeon, but "final dungeons" exist as areas preceding the final showdown in a number of mission storylines.

The final dungeon in the original mission storyline is Castle Zvahl. Players are required to traverse through both Castle Zvahl Baileys and Castle Zvahl Keep to battle Shadow Lord in the Throne Room.

In Final Fantasy XI: Rise of the Zilart, players must navigate and defeat the Ark Angels on the floating island of Tu'Lia before they can encounter Eald'narche at the Celestial Nexus.

In Chains of Promathia, players must venture deep into the heart of Al'Taieu to reach the Empyreal Paradox, where the final confrontation with the Twilight God Promathia takes place.

In Final Fantasy XI: Treasures of Aht Urhgan, the Alzadaal Undersea Ruins are where the final confrontation with Alexander is held.

In Final Fantasy XI: Wings of the Goddess, players venture to the Threshold to confront Lady Lilith.

In Final Fantasy XI: Seekers of Adoulin, players venture through the ancient ruins of Ra'Kaznar to its innermost sanctum in order to fight Hades

In Final Fantasy XI: Rhapsodies of Vana'diel, players venture through the bamboo forest of Reisenjima to get to the temple where they fight Cloud of Darkness.

Final Fantasy XII[]

Sky Fortress Bahamut.

Vaan and the rest of the party siege the Sky Fortress Bahamut to stop an all-out war between the Resistance and the Archadian Empire from breaking out above the Royal City of Rabanastre. They infiltrate the fortress with Strahl and fight through many Archadian soldiers, Judge Gabranth, and battle Vayne Solidor in all his forms.

The Bahamut is fairly short in comparison to most final dungeons, with only a handful of enemy and boss encounters located therein, and no loot to be found. The Pharos that precedes it boasts length and equipment more in line with other final dungeons in the series. This is because the player cannot leave once they board the Bahamut, and thus there are no save points there either, as it would not make sense in the storyline for the player to be able to do so.

Final Fantasy XII: Revenant Wings[]

Keep of Forgotten Time.

Vaan and his friends enter the Keep of Forgotten Time to battle Feolthanos and stop him from sapping the aegyl from their anima. They ultimately defeat Feolthanos Exultant in the Womb of Feolthanos.
