Final Fantasy Wiki

The Moogle Village is a location in Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII filled with the last remaining moogles of the world. The village is situated among Jagd Woods in the Wildlands and the entryway is open between 7 PM and 7 AM; other times vines block the player's entry. If the player visits the village wearing the Moogle Queen garb, three moogles appear and greet them.


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

Lightning meets Mog.

Lightning navigates her way to the fabled village and finds it under attack by Dryads. She dispatches the foes and meets the moogles' chief, Mog. After seeing Lightning, Mog gets scared and runs away. After finding him, Lightning smooths things out with him by telling he she does not blame him for Serah's death. She explains Serah will be revived and asks for Mog to be there when that happens. An overjoyed Mog tries to hug Lightning, but she is uncomfortable with such public displays of affection and flicks him off. After Lightning talks with him some more, he reveals that he was inspired to create the village by the example of New Bodhum.

Mog stays in the now peaceful village with the moogles, and Lightning can return and talk to him any time. If her Angel of Valhalla is still injured, Mog comments on it. Once the Angel of Valhalla is fully recovered, Mog feels a strange connection to the bird, as if they have met before, and Lightning shares his sentiment. After Lightning has visited the Temple of the Goddess and learned the truth about her steed, Mog tells Lightning how he met Odin in Valhalla and was scared. Lightning wishes Odin and Mog would become good friends and Mog promises to try.

Peace and Quiet, Kupo[]

Quest Begins

Lightning finds a moogle village deep in Jagd Woods—and just in the nick of time, as it turns out, as their peaceful existence is under attack by menacing Dryads. Monster slaying? Sounds like the perfect job for Lightning.

Entry 1

Their village saved from the menace, the delighted moogles begin to celebrate. Drawn by the festivities, the village chief appears—and makes Lightning start in surprise. The chief is none other than Serah's old faithful companion, of whom neither hide nor hair has been seen for 500 years! It should be a happy reunion, but for some reason, Mog turns and flees from Lightning. What has gotten into him?

Quest Complete

On that day 500 years ago, Mog was unable to save Serah, and he became ashamed to show his face to her sister. But Lightning tells Mog that one day Serah will return, and when she does, she will need someone familiar to welcome her back. Someone like Mog, for example. Mog is filled with joy fit to burst his bobble when he hears her say that.

Moogle Village is situated within Jagd Woods and the blue vines barring the path there part after 7 PM. After talking to the moogles in the middle, the village is invaded by Dryads. After felling the monsters, Lightning talks to the moogles again and Mog appears. He flies off to the southeastern corner of the village, and catching up with him and talking to him concludes the quest.

The Moogle Fragment is needed for Sazh Katzroy's main quest on the Wildlands, to trade with a soul seed buyer for a soul fragment. After starting Sazh's quest, but before all soul fragments have been found, Sazh can be randomly found wandering outside the Moogle Village. If he appears here, he stays out for one in-game hour.

Where Are You, Moogle?[]

Quest Begins

Deep in the Jagd Woods lies a village inhabited by moogles. There, Moggel has realized that three of his fellow moogles left ten days ago and failed to return. They must not be allowed to die out there in the forest alone—it's up to Lightning to find the lost moogles!

Entry 1

The moogles of the village sleep during the day, so Lightning needs to search at night if she is to find the lost moogles. Into the thick of Jagd Woods she must go, and bring Moglin, Moglen and Mogtha safely back home.

Entry 2

Lightning finds the lost moogles wandering in the woods. She has sent them flying back to the moogle village, and she has a string arm—so they should be safe. But it might be a good idea to drop by the village and check, just in case.

Quest Complete

Thanks to Lightning, the three lost moogles are back safe and sound in the village. It turns out that it was Moggel himself who left them out in the woods, after he went ahead to chase the scent of honey and then completely forgot about them. Lightning gives Moggel a scolding, and the message appears to sink in. Moggel vows to protect his moogle friends more carefully in the future.

Difficulty: ★★
Requirements: Available after completing Peace and Quiet, Kupo, between 7 PM and 7 AM
First Time Rewards: 1300 gil, Mog Mask, Retro Mog Mask, Max HP +80, Strength +6, Magic +8

Moggel is a moogle with a red bandanna in Moogle Village amid Jagd Woods who wants Lightning to find his three lost friends. The moogles appear between 6 PM and 6 AM and are marked on the minimap with orange dots. One moogle is in the northern edge of Jagd Village. Another is in the first forest clearing of the woods. The third is on the pathway connecting the fourth and fifth clearings right before the closed-off blue vines. After having found them all, talking to Moggel back at the Moogle Village completes the quest.

Musical themes[]

The theme that plays in Moogle Village is called "A Carefree Existence".



The moogle's Japanese name, Mōguri (モーグリ), is a portmanteau of the words for mole (土竜, mogura?) and bat (蝙蝠, kōmori?). "Moogle" is the localized version of Mōguri, losing the pun, though "moogle" has started to appear in Japanese sources as well.
