Cave of the Gi

The Cave of the Gi is a dungeon in the dark depths Cosmo Canyon in Final Fantasy VII. It is a shadow-filled cavern filled with the malevolent spirits of the Gi Tribe and traps of all kinds. There are mini caves with switches inside that must be broken to go forward, and large spider webs that cause fights with the enemy Stinger that block the paths. It is possible to glitch through one of the webs, thus avoiding a fight with the Stinger, though it rarely happens.

The cave is the only dungeon in the game where floor damage can be incurred, possibly a result of a preproduction concept of the player having been intended to be able to obtain a special materia that negated this property. This materia was subsequently removed later in development.
