The Cave of Mt. Itoi are a series of caves leading up to Mt. Itoi itself. The cave is accessible from the base. The cave is a vast maze with many winding paths, and there are several powerful enemies in the cave. The player can find the most powerful weapons for each character (with the exeption of Lloyd) in here. At the end of the caves, the player will exit and be on the mountain itself.


The Mt. Itoi caves consist of nine different caves, based on how they are positioned on the map within the game's files they are:

  • the southwest cave, which is the entrance
  • westcentral cave
  • northwest cave
  • northcentral cave
  • central cave
  • southcentral cave
  • short cave
  • northeast cave
  • and the southeast cave, also being the exit.

The caves are connected in different ways and as such is unclear how each is connected. They are connected in the following ways:

  • Southwest cave: Mt. Itoi Base, central cave and southcentral cave.
  • Westcentral cave: central cave, northcentral cave, and southcentral cave.
  • Northwest cave: northeast cave.
  • Northcentral cave: central cave, short cave, and southcentral cave.
  • Central cave: southwest cave, northcentral cave, and westcentral cave.
  • Southcentral cave: southwest cave, westcentral cave, and northcentral cave.
  • Short cave: northcentral cave and southcentral cave.
  • Northeast cave: northwest cave, westcentral cave and southeast cave.
  • Southeast cave: northeast cave and Mt. Itoi plateau.

As mentioned above, the exit to Mt. Itoi plateau is at the end of the southeast cave.
