Qu's Marsh.

But, Master, frogs very good! Frogs here best! Better than Alexandria's.
—Quina, to Quale

The Qu's Marshes (ク族の沼, Ku-zoku no numa?) are the home of Qu species, including Quina, and his/her master, Quale. They are exclusive to the world of Gaia in Final Fantasy IX.

ProfileEdit

Qu'sMarshThicket1

Thicket.

There are four Qu's Marshes in Gaia: One on the Mist Continent, one on the Outer Continent, and two on the Forgotten Continent. Apart from the Qu clan, the marshes are inhabited by frogs, which are a Qu delicacy. In the Mist Continent marsh, there is a tunnel called Fossil Roo that leads to the Outer Continent. If the player has Quina in the party when entering the part of the marsh where the frogs reside, they will be able to go frog catching.

Catching frogs has two advantages: Each frog caught powers up Quina's Blue Magic spell, Frog Drop, and if the player collects enough frogs, Quina will receive items. Catching 99 frogs will challenge Quina's master, Quale, who hands over Quina's ultimate weapon upon defeat.

Qu Marshes are home to two moogles, Mogster and his brother, previously seen in ATEs; Mogster is on hand to answer any questions the player may have. Monsters also inhabit the swamplands, varying by location.

List of MarshesEdit

Mist ContinentEdit

Qu'sMarshPond1

Mist Continent marsh.

The marsh on the Mist Continent can be accessed the first time after leaving Lindblum on foot. Quina is found here collected frogs. In the Master's House Zidane and friends will find Quale. When Vivi notes he looks remarkably similar to his grandfather, Quan, Quale pretends not to know anything about him. Quale asks Zidane to take Quina with him on his quest so Quina can become a better gourmand. When Quina is in the party the player can play frog catching in the pond.

After Lindblum has been destroyed Zidane and friends decide to venture to the Outer Continent and recruit Quina's help in finding the route to Fossil Roo and the entrance to a labyrinthine excavation site hidden in the marsh.

Outer ContinentEdit

Qu'sMarshPond2

Outer Continent marsh.

The frog pond on the Outer Continent is a fragmentary pond with many small puddles near each other. This marsh can first be accessed after crossing the Fossil Roo to the Outer Continent, and it is south from the big forest that conceal the Black Mage Village. After getting the Blue Narciss the player can return to the marsh as often as they like.

Forgotten Continent MainlandEdit

Qu'sMarshPond4

Forgotten Continent marsh.

The frog pond in the marsh on the mainland of the Forgotten Continent is one large pond. The player can first get there when they hear about Ipsen's Castle and once they get their own airship they can visit the pond whenever they want. If the player gets a gold chocobo early as in the Gold Chocobo Bug, they can come to the marsh earlier.

Forgotten Continent ArchipelagoEdit

Qu'sMarshPond3

Forgotten Continent island marsh.

The marsh on an island south of Forgotten Continent can be visited only on an airship, flying Choco or the Blue Narciss. It has three equally sized puddles.
