Saturn Valley

Fire Mountain is a volcanic mountain in Mother 3 found in the far east part of the Nowhere Islands near Snowcap Mountain. It is located north of Saturn Valley. The volcano houses the location one of the Seven Needles, which is guarded by Phrygia.


After entering from Saturn Valley, Phrygia's house is to the north shortly above the entrance. To the left of the Magypsy's house is a path which goes straight north until it reaches a cave to the deeper parts of the volcano.

In the deeper parts, the narrow pathways are bordered with magma. There are several caves containing. At the northernmost end is where Phrygia's needle is placed.


Fire Mountain plays a major role in Chapter 7. Due to being nearby Saturn Valley, the Pigmask Army sends Frightbots to frighten the Mr. Saturns into revealing information about it. Because it is on a cliff, Duster's Wall Staples are required to scale it. Because the scalable wall is too high up, Mr. Saturns play "ladder" to allow Duster to reach the mountain. Phrygia's home is found at the top of this wall, where Phrygia is found sleeping. Upon examining the sign, Phrygia gives Lucas some Encouraging Words to speak to a large boulder blocking the entrance to the volcano.

At the entrance to the cave, Pigmasks discuss Fassad, who is now sporting horns from the injury on Thunder Tower. At the cave's end, New Fassad and his Interpreter are found guarding Phrygia's Needle. After defeating New Fassad, Lucas pulls the Needle, and Phrygia enters. Before disappearing, Phrygia gives Lucas a notebook bearing the locations of the Seven Needles - and a razor and lipstick in remembrance of them.
