The Phoenix Cave is a location in Final Fantasy VI. It appears only in the World of Ruin, and is the resting place of the magicite Phoenix. The cave and the events shortly thereafter marks the culmination of Locke's long quest to find the Phoenix.

The Phoenix Cave is located northwest of Tzen, marked by a star-shaped mountain range and can only be reached by using the Falcon to drop the party members into the center of the mountain.

The dungeon has two floors, an upper area filled with water, and a lower area filled with lava. The Red Dragon, one of the Eight legendary dragons, can be fought in the cave. The dungeon requires two parties to be traversed, working together to open new paths for each other to reach the final room of the cave. Due to using two parties, the player can exploit the save point glitch.

Late in the dungeon the player can drain the water from the upper area to the lower area, cooling the lava and opening new paths on both levels. In the final room of the cave, Locke is found obtaining the Pheonix magicite. The party returns to Kohlingen where Locke attempts to use the Phoenix to revive Rachel. Afterward, Locke rejoins the party.

Though there are numerous chests in the cave, many of them are empty. Once Locke rejoins the party, he reveals it was he who emptied the chests, and the treasures he retrieved are given to the party.
