Behind the scenes[]

The smiling face on the Red Moon.

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 in Final Fantasy IV, a pattern of craters and a rock resembling a smiley.

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.



The Red Moon is the Indian name of the full moon seen during the month of August, the full moon's names were given in the Farmers' Almanac. The Moon may also appear red during a lunar eclipse.
