- “A world of monsters. Many works of art and epics about the moon throughout history are evidence of its mystical powers.”
- —FFVIII Info Corner
The moon is an important story element in Final Fantasy VIII. All monsters in Final Fantasy VIII come from the moon, brought over to the planet during the event known as the Lunar Cry. It is possible that this happens when the moon is in its closest position to the planet. The Crystal Pillar is also believed to have come from the moon.
