Crystal Tower Artwork

The Crystal Tower is the final dungeon of Final Fantasy III, and is included in the opening FMV of the DS and iOS versions.

Towers (, Tou?) are a recurring type of Dungeon found throughout the Final Fantasy series. As to be expected from a dungeon, they are always filled with monsters, and are distinguishable by their great number of floors, despite this fact that doesn't mean towers are necessarily the longest type of dungeon available.

Progressing through a tower is not always a straightforward ascent. There may be several alternating ascents and descents before the player reaches the destination, which is usually the tower's summit.


Spoiler warning: Plot and/or ending details follow. (Skip section)

Final FantasyEdit


Mirage Tower - WM

The Mirage Tower.

The Mirage Tower is distinguished by the fact of actually being a passage to another larger dungeon, the Flying Fortress. It is located in the middle of the Yahnikurm Desert, the most expansive desert in the world, and to reach it, the airship must land far away on the outskirts of the desert, as it can't land in sand.

The Mirage Tower's gateway to the Flying Fortress is guarded by a Blue Dragon.

Final Fantasy IIEdit


Cyclone Fotress

The Cyclone Fortress, a tower powering the ultimate tool of destruction.

The Mysidian Tower is a 10-floor dungeon, the longest in the game, side to side with the final dungeon, Pandaemonium, and three bosses must be fought in the quest to reach its top.

Its floors are divided by elemental alignments, starting at floor 2 and ending at floor 6. Floors 2 and 3 have a red tinge and feature lava pits, and the Fire Gigas waits at the former; floors 4 and 5 have a pale blue tinge and feature floor covered with ice spikes, and the Ice Gigas waits at the former; floor 6 has a purple tinge, features many forked paths and bottomless pits, and the Thunder Gigas waits at its end.

The Cyclone dungeon, despite its name, is actually a tower, located in the middle of the Cyclone itself. After crossing through many beasts and electrically-charged floor, the party may face the Emperor.

Final Fantasy IIIEdit


Tower of Owen

In order to proceed into the Tower of Owen's floors, Luneth and his friends must first turn into frogs.

In Final Fantasy III, towers became more prominent as locations:

  • The Tower of Owen is an early-game dungeon. It has a very mechanical appearance, and the strong Medusa can be found at its top.
  • The Dragon Spire is another minor dungeon found in Southeastern Saronia. It is filled with normal monsters for the time, as well as precious Dragoon equipment.
  • The Crystal Tower is a grandiose remote tower that serves as the final dungeon of the game. At its summit Xande performs his doomsday-bringing rites.

The Pharos is in fact a huge tower which holds the mighty Sun-Cryst at its top. As it would be to expect from the resting place of an empyreal source of immense power, the Pharos is filled with the strongest beasts, the mightiest guardians and even an Esper in order to stall any adventurer.

The Final Fantasy LegendEdit

FFL The Tower is the the central location in The Final Fantasy Legend, and it is the objective of the player characters to climb it and so reach Paradise. Wherever the Tower is seen, it appears to be based in that location and appears to extends only so far into the sky, but in truth it magically spans four main worlds, along with numerous False Paradises, taking a different form in each world.

After defeating Ashura, the Player Characters are dropped back to true bottom of the tower and forced to climb it again, this time on a series of platforms along the outside of the tower. At the Tower's peak, they face the Creator who formed the tower as a manipulative form of personal entertainment. Whether or not the Tower truly leads to Paradise is left ambiguous, as the player characters choose to return home after defeating the Creator, without pressing further on.
