The background theme that plays at Falgabard is known as "Covert Village Falgabard" (隠れ村ファルガバード, Kakuremura Farugabādo?, lit. "Hidden Town of Falgabard"), despite being originally translated as "In the Covert Town" in the Original Sound Version.
Falgabard is mentioned as one of the wonders in Final Fantasy Tactics. It bears the following description:
- This village is said to have been inhabited by an order of dark knights. While the fell blades of these knights lent them great power, they also cut short their lives. The order’s numbers dwindled, until at last none remained.
The Falgabirds are special units of the Red Wings. This force consists of Lich (a Zombie), Marilith (a Lamia), Kraken (an Ice Flan), and Tiamat (a Thundrake). They are fought in Missions 80: Earth Sigil, 76: Fire Sigil, 78: Water Sigil, and 79: Wind Sigil, respectively, and are a direct reference to the Four Fiends.
Falgabard appears as a town in this game, and it is the hometown of the Dark Knight Gram.
