Kuza, the Sealed Castle, originally Koozer and also known as Kuzar, is a location in Final Fantasy V first seen in the second world, though the party cannot do anything there at the time. The castle contains the legendary Sealed Weapons. Shield Dragons can be fought in the Sealed Castle, making it an ideal place to level grind.
In the merged world the castle becomes the resting place of enemies called Exdeath's Souls, and upon retrieving the tablets and bringing them to the castle one by one, the party can retrieve the Sealed Weapons, three for each tablet, until all twelve have been acquired. The weapons can be claimed in any order.
The chancellor and scholars from the Wind Shrine investigate the castle and can be found in the first room. They help the player obtain the tablets by giving clues as to where they may be located and if the scholar in the bottom right corner of the room is spoken to, he will reveal a healing pot which replenishes HP and MP.
The Castle of Kuza was built to house the Sealed Weapons 1000 years ago, with the split of the worlds. Since then, it has stood on the northern continent of the second world.
During the storyline, the Warriors of Light visit the castle, wherein Galuf explains its nature. It is not visited again until the worlds are merged and the castle takes a more important position in the fate of the world. After the worlds are merged, the scholars from the Wind Shrine find the Sealed Castle and explore it. After the heroes find the tablets, they are able to unseal the Sealed Weapons to use them to defeat Exdeath and the demons of the Interdimensional Rift.

|"Sealed Away" from Final Fantasy V|
|Trouble with the audio sample?|
"Sealed Away" (封印されしもの, Fūinsareshi Mono?) plays as the background music for the earlier rooms of the Sealed Castle. In the weapon room of the Sealed Castle has "Sealed Book" (封印の書, Fūin no Sho?) as its background theme.
- If the party visits the Sealed Castle in the Second World once Krile has replaced Galuf as a party member, the dialogue with Galuf will still occur.
