Final Fantasy Tactics: The War of the Lions Lake tile's description

Lake (, Mizumi?) is a recurring type of location in the Final Fantasy series. They can be visitable or just a part of scenery. Some areas called "lakes" in the series are actually dry, but they used to be bodies of water.


Final Fantasy III[]

Lake Dohr's world map location in the PSP version.

Lake Dohr is an optional dungeon found to the west of Castle Argus over a small mountain range which holds a fight against an optional summon, Leviathan, and requires the Invincible to reach.

Subterranean Lake is a location which party enters by jumping into the lake in Dwarven Hollows while in the Toad status. This is where Gutsco has taken the stolen Horn of Ice.

Final Fantasy VII[]

There are two lakes explicitly referred to as such in the data of Final Fantasy VII. The area to the rear in the Forgotten City where the music box is located is referred to as the "lost lake" (ロストレイク, rosuto reiku?) in game files. The lake on the western continent between the Gold Saucer Area and Nibel Area that has a waterfall with Lucrecia's Cave behind uses world map textures with "lake" in the file name.

A crater that is formed in the Junon Area once Meteor is summoned is referred to as a lake in the BradyGames guide. The crater formed over a river and has water at its bottom. Ultimate Weapon appears here after defeating Diamond Weapon.

Various other bodies of water in the game are often referred to as lakes by fans. In addition to the earlier mentioned Forgotten City lake, there is the Forest area that contains a shell surrounded by water where Aeris's body is placed, and the water in the underground city where the Holy Materia falls. In the Great Glacier is an inlet often referred to as the "frozen lake". In the middle of the inlet is a cave containing a Safety Bit that can be reached by crossing an ice flow.

Final Fantasy VIII[]

Great Salt Lake.

Great Salt Lake is a place from which Squall enters Esthar City. It is a recently dried up lake, as an old photo in the Timber Maniacs magazine shows the lake with water.

Obel Lake is a location north of Timber. It is a horseshoe-shaped lake with a small ledge, and a river flowing northwards through Vaulny Canyon. Obel Lake is the location for a sidequest that requires Squall to travel all over the world in search of rare items and hidden locations with a guide from a friendly black shadow.

Final Fantasy X[]

Lake Macalania.

Lake Macalania is a frozen lake where one of Rin's travel agencies can be found. A magnificent ice palace, Macalania Temple sits atop the frozen waters. The temple is located north of the Macalania Woods. Constructed primarily of ice, it sits atop the frozen Lake Macalania. The temple's fayth and aeon is Shiva, whose influence is implied to have frozen the lake. The High Priest of Macalania Temple is Maester Seymour Guado.

Shortly after the Eternal Calm started, the temple sunk into Lake Macalania which has begun to melt.

Lake Bresha.

Lake Bresha is a large lake located on Cocoon's outer-rim, directly underneath the Hanging Edge. Lake Bresha is crystallized when the fal'Cie Anima crash-lands there, and Lightning and her new companions must cross the lake to a set of ruins at its outskirts while battling Cie'th and PSICOM pursuers.

There is also an area called "Subterranean Lake" in the Sulyya Springs on Gran Pulse. The lake is within a cave system and the home of fal'Cie Bismarck.
