Challenge Dungeons (チャレンジダンジョン, Charenji Danjon?) are bonus dungeons in Final Fantasy IV: The After Years. Every character with their own tale has one. They become available to explore by talking to Challengingway after the tale has been cleared. The Challenge Dungeons are difficult multi-floor dungeons with powerful enemies and often bosses, but for completing them the player receives a rare item or equipment piece. Challenge Dungeons must be completed multiple times to win all the items they offer.

The Challenge Dungeons have been removed from Final Fantasy IV: The After Years for iOS and Android, but the items from those dungeons can still be obtained in a different way.
