Tycoon Meteorite is the first visitable location in Final Fantasy V. It is located in Bartz's world to the west of Tycoon and the south of the Pirates' Hideout. Early in the game, it is blocking access to Castle Tycoon.

History[]

Bartz finds Lenna at the meteor

Galuf Halm Baldesion used the meteorite to travel to Bartz's world,[note 1] after sensing Exdeath was beginning to reawaken.[3] The meteorite crash-landed near Castle Tycoon, causing Galuf to suffer amnesia.[note 2]

Upon arriving to investigate the crash, Bartz Klauser witnessed an unconscious Lenna Charlotte Tycoon being approached by a pair of Goblins and engaged them in battle. After saving Lenna, the two discovered the amnesiac Galuf collapsed at the meteorite and tended to him. Afterwards, Lenna and Galuf left the meteorite together with the intent to visit the wind crystal's shrine.[4]

Later, when adamantite was needed to upgrade their airship and travel to the Ronka Ruins, Galuf recalled adamantite reserves being present in the meteorite.[1] To obtain it, he, Bartz, and the party defeated the Adamantoise in battle.

After the earth crystal shattered and Galuf returned to his world, Bartz and the party met with Cid and Mid Previa at the meteorite. There, Cid and Mid hypothesized that Bartz's party could use the adamantite to travel to Galuf's world. Deducing that the adamantite left in the meteorite was not enough, the party traveled to the other three meteorites to gather the required amount.[5]

Quests[]

The Tycoon Meteorite is visited for three short quests. At the start of the game, Bartz arrives and finds Lenna, then fights two Goblins in a simple battle.

The meteorite is later returned to after visiting the Catapult, when Galuf suggests returning for adamantite; there, a boss battle is fought against Adamantoise.

Finally, after leaving Ronka Ruins, Tycoon Meteorite must be returned to visit Cid and Mid, where a quest to obtain adamantite from Walse Meteorite, Karnak Meteorite, and Gohn Meteorite begins thereafter.

Musical themes[]

"Four Hearts" plays when Bartz first approaches the meteor. It also plays outside the meteor on the last two visits. "Hurry! Hurry!" plays when Bartz saves Lenna from goblins. "Lenna's Theme" plays after Bartz saves Lenna and continues playing outside the meteor until the player goes to the overworld. "Dungeon" plays inside of the meteor.

Etymology[]

A meteorite is a solid piece of debris, from such sources as asteroids or comets, that originates in outer space and survives its impact with the Earth's surface. It is called a meteoroid before its impact.
