Trapped between dimensions, time has stopped in this town.

Phantom Village Resident

Phantom Village, also known as Mirage village, is a town in the Merged World in Final Fantasy V. It is referred to as The Town that Time Forgot for being caught in an Interdimensional Rift for over 1,000 years.

Phantom Village is the only town not represented by a town icon on the map, instead just being situated in the center of a patch of forest. When trying to enter the village, sometimes a battle intro may play with sound and visual effects, but if the player was lucky at the moment of search, they are taken to the village instead of the battle. The best items, weapons, armor, and magic can be bought here. Each establishment has two vendors, one which sells fair items, the second selling rare items. The catch is in locating the second vendor, as they are hidden and difficult to get to.

A building in the town contains a door that appears sealed. When exploring the Interdimensional Rift, the player enters the time-frozen town through this door.

The party leader can play a piano at the village. Playing all the pianos in the world acquires the last song, Hero's Rime, after showing the newfound pianist skills to the bard in Crescent.

The last piano is in Phantom Village. The player must head to the pub but not go in, instead, head behind it, and go down to get behind the pub's counter. The door on the left leads outside, and heading down will come to a door. Inside, the player will arrive at some steps. The player should head down to reach the wall and turn left and press against the wall to reach a room that has steps leading up. It leads to the black chocobo. Before getting on the chocobo, the player can press against the left wall of the room that leads to it, and the last piano is in the next room.

If the player played all the previous ones, the party leader will play an excerpt from Debussy's "Arabesque No. 1".

Secret vendors and entrances[]

The armor shop's hidden vendor in Mirage Village.

The shops (see below) and almost all areas in Phantom Village have hidden passages, leading to hidden vendors. There is a secret door in every building, except for the inn. The secret vendors sell rare items.

  • Pub - The player must go around the top of pub outside; there is a secret entrance behind the building.
  • Armor shop - Inside the building, the player must press Confirm on the box to the left of the entrance, and the counter will open up, revealing a secret path.
  • Weapon shop - The player must take the secret entrance to the pub, go south of town after using a secret exit, and go into the small building southwest of town. The player must go down the stairs, then go down to a locked door, and go north on the path to the right.
  • Magic shop - Instead of going into the shop, the player must go left from the entrance, and go around back. There is a secret entrance there.

Musical themes[]

"Sealed Book" from Final Fantasy V

The background theme that plays in Phantom Village is called "Sealed Book".



A phantom is a ghost, a physical manifestation of the soul or spirit of a deceased person.

Mirages are naturally-occurring, optical phenomena in which light rays are bent to produce displaced images of distant objects. The word "mirage" is of French origin and derived from the Latin mirari, which means "to look at" or "to wonder at".
