The Nether Nebula is a dungeon located in the Cornelia Region of Grymoire in World of Final Fantasy. It is entered via a cave entrance spanning the northeast area of the Cornelia Region. It is first visited in Chapter 3, "Old Acquaintances".

Story[edit | edit source]

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

Shiva, Ramuh and Ifrit greet the twins.

After traversing the cavern and entering its inner depths, the twins encounter a threshold containing three large crystals. Mirages appear from the crystals, calling themselves Shiva, Ramuh and Ifrit. The Mirages greet the twins with a welcome, much to the latter's confusion. Having taken a look at the condition of the twins, the Mirages deduce that they are not the same masters they once knew, stating that rather than having all three of them fight, the twins can select one they want to fight.

After selecting the Mirage they would like to fight, the twins enter into battle and achieve victory over the Mirage. Following the battle's end, the three Mirages bid their farewell to the twins, removing the threshold from the area as well as providing them a prismarium of the same Mirage class as the Mirage they have chosen to fight.

An elated Tama tells the twins that she can produce a quick shortcut to exit the cave, much to Lann's excitement. After producing the Gate, Lann and Tama argue over whether the buzzcut is actually, with the latter asking what could be shorter than a buzzcut. Reynn deduces that it's probably a bald-cut.

Spoilers end here.

Locations[edit | edit source]

Cavern 1[edit | edit source]

Contains a Gate at the dungeon's entrance.

Cavern 2[edit | edit source]

This room introduces the player to enemy stacks, and also contains a Gimme Golem.

Cavern 3[edit | edit source]

This room introduces the player to Puzzle Switches, both of which in this dungeon require activation to proceed to the next area.

Cavern 4[edit | edit source]

Contains a Save Crystal. Going up the steps and further into the area, the player finds a giant threshold and the Tri-elemance barrier guarded by Ifrit, Shiva, and Ramuh. After the player defeats the Pleiad of their choosing, an Exit Gate is created.

Cavern 4 also branches off to the right of the Save Crystal, and leads to Cavern 5, a secret area in the dungeon. Accessing it require Mirages with the Smash and Flutter abilities.

Cavern 5[edit | edit source]

Unlike other secret areas later in the game, Zapts, Fritts and Bablizzes will appear randomly in normal battles with higher leveled versions of the Mirages found in the previous sections, and makes an ideal spot for early-game level grinding.

Etymology[edit | edit source]

Nether comes from Old English niþera or neoþera, meaning "down, downwards, below, beneath."

A nebula is an interstellar cloud of dust, hydrogen, helium and other ionized gases. Originally, nebula was a name for any diffuse astronomical object, including galaxies beyond the Milky Way.
