The Tower (塔, Tou?) is a location in The Final Fantasy Legend. It has twenty three floors. The player will find some real and fake healing springs along the way, and there's some damage floors in the form of spikes.
Ashura offers the party a deal: he'll offer each one of them a world. The party rejects the deal swearing they'll never work for him. Ashura says he was just being nice and engages them into battle.
The party defeats him with the door leading to Paradise right before them. The party heads towards the door, but falls into a pitfall. They hear a voice calling them from a distance asking if they can climb out, and when they regain consciousness they find themselves in Base Town.
After breaking the seal with the four spheres the party re-climbs the Tower and re-meets Gen-Bu2 and a battle ensues. After his defeat, the party enters the door and finds themselves on the tower's exterior.
While walking up they come across Sei-Ryu2 and defeat him. The party comes across Byak-Ko2 and ends up being defeated. The last of the Four Fiends is encountered, and ends up being defeated as well. With all the fiends dead the party continues to climb up the exterior of the tower and reaches the door that leads to Paradise.
