Final Fantasy Wiki

Machanon is a location from the Soul of Rebirth dungeon in the Final Fantasy II Dawn of Souls remake. It is revealed to be a town in the afterlife.

The town is a mirror of Poft, and Minwu's party takes refuge in it after traveling through the Unknown Cave. There, they find some Knights of Fynn, Tobul the Smith, and Cid. The town has an Inn, a Sanctuary, three shops, and three teleporters: one that leads back to the Unknown Cave, one that leads to the Unknown Palace, and a final one that leads to the Chamber of the Seal, where the party can try to obtain the Ultima Tome a second time.


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

After roaming though a mysterious cave, Minwu reaches a mysterious town. There, he meets Cid, Tobul and some Fynn Knights, discovering they have passed on as well. He also finds strange warp panels, one taking him to the place of his death, the Chamber of the Seal. There he meets the Ultima Weapon and is granted an Ultima Tome upon defeating it.

Returning to Machanon, he finds another warp panel, which takes him and his friends to a mysterious monster-ridden palace.

One of the NPCs in the city tells Minwu that the deceased had traveled in search of a location safe from monsters before constructing Machanon, and they suffered heavy casualties before doing so.

In Jewish mythology, Machon is the name of the fifth of the seven Heavens, and is ruled by the Archangel Samael. Samael is the Angel of Death in Judaism and thus is sometimes seen as an evil being in spite of being an Archangel, roughly reflecting the Light Emperor ruling Arubboth yet still being evil.
