Mt. Nibel is a mountain near the village of Nibelheim in the Nibel Area in Final Fantasy VII. It is the site for the Nibel Reactor where Jenova was stored for some time. In Final Fantasy VII the player must cross the mountain to get to Rocket Town. Mt. Nibel is also a playable location in Crisis Core -Final Fantasy VII- and also appears in Before Crisis -Final Fantasy VII-.

Story[edit | edit source]

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

South Mako Cave.

Many years ago, Mt. Nibel was one of the many earliest locations where Shinra decided to open a mako reactor. While the nearby town of Nibelheim prospered due to the power it supplied, its forests and wildlife withered away and the mountain became a barren coarse wasteland notorious for its dangerous monsters, from which many of the locals speak tales of people who ventured into its heights only to never return alive.

In 1995, Tifa Lockhart tried to climb Mt. Nibel to be reunited with her recently deceased mother, whom she believed she could meet if she crossed the mountain. A young Cloud Strife followed, but when Tifa was injured and fell into a coma, the local townsfolk blamed him and Tifa's father forbade Cloud from approaching Tifa.

Five years prior to the events of Final Fantasy VII, Sephiroth, Zack Fair, and several Shinra troops—including Cloud Strife—were sent to Nibelheim to investigate the reactor. With Tifa as their guide, the party advanced through the caverns after a rope bridge snapped. They came across a mako fountain, and while Tifa marveled at it Sephiroth explained the nature of magic and Materia.

Mt. Nibel is later revisited during Final Fantasy VII when the party crosses the mountain to reach Rocket Town.
