Trivia[edit | edit source]

The smiling face on the Red Moon.

  • The world of Terra in Final Fantasy IX may partially be inspired by the Red Moon, as its citizens dwell in a deep sleep similar to the Lunar Sleep, and the planet has a red moon. The planet of Gaia has two moons: its original blue moon, and Terra's red moon.
  • Dalamud in Final Fantasy XIV may also be inspired by the Red Moon, being itself a red moon constructed by an ancient civilization and playing host to Bahamut.
  • Cydonia is a region on the planet Mars and contains the "Face on Mars" feature which is located about half-way between Arandas Crater and Bamberg Crater. Mars is often described as the "Red Planet" because the iron oxide prevalent on its surface gives it a reddish appearance. A similar "face" can be found on the Red Moon, a pattern of craters and a rock resembling a smiley.
