The Jade Passage is the path joining this world with Hell. The passage leads to Pandaemonium, the castle of Hell

Bookshelf at Mysidia

Jade Passage is a location in Final Fantasy II that connects the world to Pandaemonium, the Castle of Hell. Jade Passage is located on a peninsula to the east of Mysidia, and only reveals itself after Pandaemonium emerges. The sea strait located on the top of the peninsula is called the Jade Sea.

Firion is forced to traverse the passage when the Emperor summons the Pandaemonium to replace the Palamecia, since Pandaemonium does not have the same vulnerability to an aerial infiltration as Palamecia had. The entrance to the Jade Passage is a subterranean lake revealed after the destruction of Castle Palamecia and the alliance of Leon. It is located on the long peninsula in the center of the world map. The player can reach it by flying east of Mysidia or southeast of Altair. Jade's exit leads into Pandaemonium, and it is a long and winding dungeon, and the second toughest dungeon after the Castle of Hell itself.

Behind the scenes[]

Jade Passage's battle background (NES).

In the NES version of Final Fantasy II, Jade Passage's battle background is the same as the one used in Snow Cave even if Jade Passage has no ice.

The Jade Passage is alluded to as a myth in the world of Ivalice. The Pit Fiend's bestiary entry in Final Fantasy XII mentions that "A myth counts this being as one of the warriors set to defend the Jade Passage to the Devil's Palace." Pit Fiends can be encountered in the Jade Passage. In addition, Pandaemonium is one of the Wonders in Final Fantasy Tactics. While its description does not mention the Jade Passage by name, it does mention that a warping device was the only means of entering Pandaemonium, which can be found at the end of the Jade Passage in Final Fantasy II.



Jade is an ornamental rock. The term jade is applied to two different metamorphic rocks that are made up of different silicate minerals. Nephrite can be found in a creamy white form (known in China as "mutton fat" jade) as well as in a variety of greens, whereas jadeite shows more colour variations, including blue, lavender-mauve, pink, and emerald-green. Of the two, jadeite is rarer. Translucent emerald-green jadeite is the most prized variety.
