Sometimes inside the Serpent Trench the player needs to choose the way, either to the left or to the right. If the player chooses the way to the right, they will enter a cave (if the player needs to access the menu, they should head there), and, if they go to left, the journey through the Serpent Trench ends sooner.
In the World of Ruin, the Serpent Trench still connects Mobliz and Nikeah, but due to the shifting of the world, it is now above water and is traversed on foot. The Cultists' Tower is situated on the Serpent Trench inside a ring of mountains.
Mog's Dance Edit
Mog can only learn Water Harmony by battling on a water battle area. If the player recruits Mog in the World of Balance, they can go through the Serpent Trench with him in the party to let Mog learn the dance.
In the Advance and mobile versions, if the player miss the opportunity to learn the dance here, they will get a second chance to learn the Water Harmony dance in the battle against Leviathan in the World of Ruin.

Musical themes Edit
|"The Serpent Trench" from Final Fantasy VI|
|Trouble with the audio sample?|
In the World of Balance, the Serpent Trench uses its eponymous track as a background theme, but in the World of Ruin, since it has surfaced into the Overworld, the World of Ruin's overworld themes ("Dark World" and "Searching for Friends") are heard when traveling it instead.
Other appearances Edit
serpent, or snake, is one of the oldest and most widespread mythological symbols. The word is derived from Latin serpens, a crawling animal. Snakes have been associated with some of the oldest rituals known to humankind and represent dual expression of good and evil.The
