Trivia

  • By far, this dungeon is the shortest of any accessible dungeon in normal gameplay, being one floor shorter than Beach Cave. While it is true that Sky Peak's Station Passes 1-3, as well as the Ice and Rock sections of Aegis Cave have 3 floors, they are all part of the same dungeon, so this dungeon is the shortest one with no multiple sections. This would not be true if the other 12 floors were accessible.
    • Apparently, this dungeon was intended to have 16 floors.
