Gargan Roo is an ancient transport network used on the Mist Continent in Gaia in Final Fantasy IX.

Profile Edit


The party rides a gargant.

Gargan Roo is a network of roots from the colossal Iifa Tree, which flows through underground tunnels. The passengers ride in a carriage that hangs from the back of a giant insect, called the Gargant, that is called by feeding it flowers that resemble large dandelions.

Doctor Tot's mansion in Treno contains a secret entrance to Gargan Roo, which he shows the party after giving them the Supersoft. Tot explains the system of levers that controls the Gargant's path between Treno and Alexandria Castle.

The Gargant can be spooked the monsters spawned by the underground Mist. Many of the monsters are giant insects or arthropods. The party encounters Ralvurahva when it spooks their Gargant before escaping the subsequent battle. Later, the Ralvuimago intercepts the Gargant on its journey back. Though defeated, the Ralvuimago chases the Gargant into accelerating past the Treno Station, crashing and isolating the party at Pinnacle Rocks.

There is another Gargant tunnel called Fossil Roo, which allows travel between the Mist Continent and the Outer Continent.

Etymology Edit

The French word rue, pronounced more or less like "roo", means "street". "Roo" may actually be a variation of "root", as the passages of Gargan Roo were carved out by Iifa roots.
