South Figaro Cave (サウスフィガロの洞窟, Sausu Figaro no Dōkutsu?), also known as Figaro Cave, is a dungeon in Final Fantasy VI. It is a tunnel that leads from Figaro Castle to South Figaro. It contains a recovery spring and a secret passage to the basement of Figaro Castle. Turtles live in the cave.
The first time this cave is accessed is when Terra, Locke, and Edgar are traveling from Figaro Castle to the Returner Hideout. They simply pass through the cave to the town. Later, Locke and Celes pass through the cave when heading from South Figaro to Narshe. This time, they must fight the Tunnel Armor. After dispatching the machine, they make it safely out of the cave and continue to Narshe.
After the end of the world, the Crimson Robbers reveal a new section of the cave dug by sandworms. This part of the cave leads into the prison of Figaro Castle, which has been trapped underground when the burrowing engines malfunctioned. Siegfried is found following the robbers to steal treasure along the way. The new section of the cave is accessed by jumping on a turtle to traverse the cave's recovery spring, which has now lost its healing properties. Many of the new monsters that populate the cave can confuse party members, and with only Celes and Sabin in the party this can easily spell defeat without protection.
