The Fork Tower is a location in Final Fantasy V found in the Merged World, above the Catapult near Crescent. It also exists in Galuf's World, southeast of Castle Exdeath, although it is inaccessible as it is surrounded by mountains.
After completing the Island Shrine, the barrier at the entrance of the Fork Tower dissipates. The party must divide and reach the top of the towers simultaneously to obtain the most powerful Black and White Magic spells: Flare on the left side and Holy on the right.
Each tower is divided between physical power and magical power. On the left side, enemies only use magic, and physical attacks are ineffective and result in powerful counter attacks. The right tower has enemies that only use powerful physical attacks, and magic is unable to be used at all in battle. Atop the tower lie the two spells; the parties must fight a boss each, and both spells must be obtained simultaneously. If either party moves without taking the spell after reaching the top, or if the player enters the game menu, the tower explodes and it is a Game Over. Once both spells are safely retrieved, the tower disappears, allowing Cid and Mid to be freed from the Catapult (which was buried during the merger of the two worlds). Cid upgrades the airship to include submarine functionality.
