Final Dungeons are places where final boss battles in the Final Fantasy series take place, generally in a large, twisting dungeon that has some of the game's most powerful enemies and are usually the last area visited in a game. More often than not, the strongest equipment in the game can be found there, as well. The game's final boss awaits at the end of the dungeon.
