Lost Underworld

Fire Spring is the eighth and final sanctuary location in EarthBound, found near the Lost Underworld. It is guarded by Carbon Dog, and, when enough damage is inflicted on it, Carbon Dog transforms into Diamond Dog.


Fire Spring's dungeon is a cave consisting of ledges forming a triangular shape. Traversing through the cave revolves around climbing up and down the ropes and through cave passageways. The cave begins at the west entrance then straight east to the second cave entrance on the lowest area. The cave leads to the east half of the lowest area, with a Cherub's band in the eastmost corner. Climbing up the rope brings the team to a ledge with two caves. The cave on the left has a Magic Butterfly spawning point, and right brings them to the other half of the ledge.

Climbing ip the two ropes leads to a cave with two exits. The nearest exit can be used to reach the ledge where the Moon beam gun can be found. The second brings the player to the far west side of the dungeon, where climbing up the two roles brings the party to the Sanctuary Guardian, the Carbon Dog.

Role in EarthBound

Fire Spring serves as the eighth and final dungeon of the game. Ness first hears of it from the talking rock back at the Tenda village in the Lost Underworld. Once Ness and his friends reach Fire Spring, they climb to the top where they are confronted by the Carbon Dog. During the middle of the fight, however, it transforms into the more powerful Diamond Dog. The party manages to defeat it, then reach the Sanctuary being a small volcano on a mountain.

Ness will have the feeling of being watched by himself as a baby as the Sound Stone records the Melody. If Ness has visited all seven of the other Sanctuaries prior, the Sound Stone will then play the Melodies by itself, then Ness will have a flashback from when he was born, then he will be taken to Magicant, which is inside of his mind. If one or more Sanctuaries have been skipped, this will occur in the last Sanctuary completed instead.
