Cosmo Canyon (コスモキャニオン Kosumo Kyanion) is a location in Final Fantasy VII. It is also known as the "Valley of the Fallen Star". It is a pilgrimage site for those who wish to pursue the study of Planet life, and home to an observatory from which the Planet and its surroundings can be studied. The eco-terrorist group AVALANCHE was founded in Cosmo Canyon by an unknown person at an unknown time. The members of Red XIII's Tribe are the guardians of this land. Every fifty years a male and female of the species perform a rite to appease the Planet.

The Huge Materia are stored in the observatory. If the correct conditions are met, the player can obtain Master Materia; one can be turned into a Summon Materia.

Gi Tribe

Cosmo Canyon's Observatory

Cosmo Canyon is Red XIII's birth place. For years, Cosmo Canyon was protected by a tribe of warriors of Red XIII's species. Nanaki (Red XIII) is the current guardian. Cosmo Canyon was once at war with the Gi Tribe but they were defeated by Nanaki's father Seto. Seto fought against the Gi Tribe, and sacrificed himself to save his home and family. Seto continues to watch over Cosmo Canyon as a stone statue.

Before Crisis -Final Fantasy VII-

The Turks are sent to Cosmo Canyon to find a specimen of Red XIII's species for Professor Hojo's research in Chapter 18. At the same time, Nanaki and the female Deneh are to perform the fifty-year ritual. Nanaki is frightened to take part in the ceremony and tells this to his adoptive grandfather, Bugenhagen. However, his fear makes Deneh consider him a coward. While Fuhito of AVALANCHE travels to confront his old master, Bugenhagen, the Turks fight through AVALANCHE forces to try to steal Deneh. But Nanaki jumps ahead to save her. Though Nanaki is taken into Shinra hands, Deneh escapes unharmed.

Final Fantasy VII

During their trip to Cosmo Canyon with the rescued Nanaki, christened Red XIII by Hojo, Cloud and his companions are told about the history and state of the planet by Bugenhagen. He senses that Red XIII hates his father, for thinking that he ran off when fighting the Gi Tribe. In order to let Red XIII see the truth for himself, he opens the sealed door to the Cave of the Gi, which is filled with ghosts of the Gi Tribe. At the end of the cave is Seto, as a statue. Red XIII learns the truth, and forgives his father. Seto sheds a tear of pride, and Red XIII obtains the Seraph Comb.

Nearing the end of the game, the greatest elder of Cosmo Canyon, Bugenhagen, dies at the age of 129. The two other elders are Elder Hargo and Elder Bughe. Both Elders continue to study the history of Planet life.
