Mt. Nibel.

Mt. Nibel (ニブル山, Niburu-yama?) is a mountain near the village of Nibelheim in Final Fantasy VII. It is the site for a Shinra Electric Power Company Mako Reactor where Jenova was stored for some time. In Final Fantasy VII the player must cross the mountain to get to Rocket Town. Mt. Nibel is also a playable location in Crisis Core -Final Fantasy VII-.

Many years ago, Tifa Lockhart tried to climb Mt. Nibel to be reunited with her recently deceased mother, whom she believed she could meet if she crossed the mountain. A young Cloud Strife followed, but when Tifa fell and was injured, the local townsfolk blamed him and Tifa's father forbade Cloud from coming near Tifa.

Five years prior to the events of Final Fantasy VII, Sephiroth, Zack Fair, and several Shinra troops, including Cloud Strife, were sent to Nibelheim to investigate the reactor and reports of monsters nearby. The party entered the reactor and Sephiroth deduced the reason the reactor was malfunctioning was because a section was broken in the mako purification tanks. It was discovered the reason it broke was because Hojo had placed several human test subjects in the tanks. Jenova's remains were found sealed in a separate chamber.

Troubled by the idea he was created by the same process as the beings in the mako tanks (as well as Genesis' explanation that Sephiroth was "Shinra's true monster"), Sephiroth returned to Nibelheim to investigate the matter. Sephiroth was driven mad by the findings and razed Nibelheim before returning to Mt. Nibel to claim Jenova's remains. Cloud defeated Sephiroth on the reactor and flung Sephiroth into the Lifestream. Zack and Cloud, collapsed in the reactor due to having fought Sephiroth, were later claimed by Shinra and used as test subjects.

During the events of Final Fantasy VII, Cloud Strife and his party cross through Mt. Nibel on during their worldwide journey after Sephiroth.

"Under the Rotting Pizza" from Final Fantasy VII
FFVII - Underneath the Rotting Pizza
Trouble with the audio sample?

Like in Nibelheim, the track "On That Day, 5 Years Ago" (5年前のあの日, Gonen Mae no ano Hi?) continues to play in Mt. Nibel. When the party returns to Mt. Nibel, "Under the Rotting Pizza" (腐ったピザの下で, Kusatta Piza no Shita De?) plays as the background music.

In Crisis Core -Final Fantasy VII-, "March on the Frontier" plays as the background theme. Inside the reactor, "The Skyscraper of Iron and Steel" plays.
