Dreamscape, also known as Dream Dungeon and Cyan's Dream/Cyan's Soul, is a dungeon in Final Fantasy VI. It is a dream world formed from the mind of Cyan Garamonde as a reflection of his pain for the deaths of his friends, family, and country.
When the party returns to Doma Castle with Cyan in the World of Ruin, and rests there, the Dream Stooges—Laragorn, Curlax, and Moebius—enter Cyan's soul. The party follows, surfacing in a dreamscape of separate areas connected by doors.
The party comes across a mirror image of Doma Castle, where Elayne and Owain, Cyan's dead wife and child, urge them to find and defeat Wrexsoul, who is feeding on Cyan's confusion and doubt. The party find Wrexsoul in the throne room and after vanquishing him, Cyan is restored.
Exploring the DreamscapeEdit
The player begins with only their third party member and must navigate the area to find their other two party members, and then once the party is reformed they can locate the Dream Stooges and battle them to leave the area. After defeating them, the party is teleported to a Phantom Train-like area, then a series of mines, both times seeing ghostly specters of Cyan being chased by other forces.
The mines portion of the Dreamscape is the third and final time the player has access to Magitek Armor. If Terra is in the party during this segment she can use the expanded Magitek abilities she could use in the game's opening. Gogo can only use the Magitek commands if given the Attack command, since the Magitek command replaces Attack. The Dreamscape is one of a handful of areas that cannot be revisited by the player, so if the player wishes for Gau to learn the Rages of any enemies here, they must meet all the appropriate enemies during the exploration.
The final area of the Dreamscape is a mirror image of Doma Castle, where Elayne and Owain urge the party to find and defeat Wrexsoul feeding on Cyan's confusion and doubt. The player can explore Doma Castle to witness various flashbacks of Cyan's life, and Wrexsoul is located in the throne room. After dispatching Wrexsoul, Cyan is restored and achieves his peak level of skill with his Bushido training.
