The Dragons' Den is a bonus dungeon in Final Fantasy VI in the Game Boy Advance and iOS/Android/Steam versions, located just north of the Dragon's Neck Coliseum on an island with a single tree. Access is given once the player has defeated the eight legendary dragons. The player can find the ultimate equipment pieces here as well as the most powerful bosses guarding them.
The den requires three parties to traverse, which lets the player exploit the save point glitch. The save areas have red beams of light that allow the player to change party members between the three parties if all three are brought to the same room. This means the three parties can often change paths and meet up. Thus, the player can explore the den with the same party and fight all eight legendary dragons with them, if they know the den well enough and are willing to backtrack.
Several areas are sealed off with magical barriers attuned to one of the eight legendary dragons. Defeating a dragon shatters the corresponding seals, and to access the den's deepest areas, all dragons must fall. Each dragon is stronger than before with higher stats, better attacks, and each has a unique "gimmick" to make the fight difficult. E.g. Ice Dragon mimics the Vector Lythos and attacks in a group of four, while Gold Dragon gains a Runic effect, absorbing all magic cast against it.
The dungeon architecture changes several times, and various puzzles from previous dungeons—such as jumping on turtles to cross water or hopping over bridges—are repeated. The dungeon is mostly a series of caves, some with magma, but a temple area also appears. The deepest area has three switches. Upon two of the switches being triggered, the third becomes a portal to the room where Kaiser Dragon lurks. After Kaiser is defeated, returning to his chamber reveals Omega Weapon in his place.
The den has a variety of monsters and no single monster is found in every section; some can only be found in specific rooms. Most are unique to the Dragons' Den, though there are a number of enemies from Kefka's Tower and other locations. Excluding a handful of monster-in-a-box enemies and the dragons themselves, the monsters unique to the Dragons' Den give 5,000 experience upon defeat, but no AP.
