Nikeah is a town in Final Fantasy VI. It is a port city located at the north end of the Serpent Trench and the mouth of the Lethe River. It has a large marketplace, and its shops are street vendors standing among the crates of goods in the port. Ships sail regularly between Nikeah and South Figaro and later in the game, the player can choose to board ferries from Nikeah to South Figaro and back as they wish.


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

Sabin landed at Nikeah port.

Sabin, Cyan, and Gau surface in Nikeah's ports after swimming through the Serpent Trench from Mobliz. The three board a ship bound to South Figaro to get to Narshe. If the party enters Nikeah's pub, a dancer will flirt with Cyan, making him uncomfortable.

Edgar as "Gerad".

In the World of Ruin, Nikeah hasn't changed much: it still has a thriving marketplace, and runs ferries to South Figaro. Celes and Sabin come here searching for their friends and meet Gerad, a man who resembles Edgar who leads the Crimson Robbers. Gerad and the robbers depart on a ferry to South Figaro with the two in pursuit.

In the GBA and following versions, as soon as the party arrives at Nikeah in the World of Ruin a former Returner will recognize the party and claim that prior to their infiltration to the Magitek Research Facility four espers had escaped, and that they could help the party in their journey. Considering the man's absence in the original versions he most likely refers to the four espers introduced in the GBA version: Leviathan, Diabolos, Gigantuar, and Gilgamesh.

Spoilers end here.



A man at South Figaro mentioning the shadow in the sea near Nikeah.

In the Advance, mobile and Steam releases, after speaking to a man in South Figaro near the chocobo stable who mentions seeing a shadow while fishing, boarding the ferry in either direction will cause Leviathan to attack the ship once the party has acquired the Falcon. Defeating him earns the party the Leviathan magicite.

Nikeah is probably based on Nicaea. It was the original Greek settlement name for what are now the modern cities of İznik, Turkey and Nice, France.
