The Jade Passage (ジェイドいりぐち Jeido Iriguchi lit "Jade Entrance"), also known as Jade Portal, is a location in Final Fantasy II. It connects the world to Pandaemonium, the Castle of Hell. Jade Passage is located on a penninsula to the east of Mysidia, and only reveals itself after Pandaemonium emerges.



The descent into the Jade Passage.

Firion is forced to traverse the passage when the Emperor causes Pandaemonium to appear in the world in place of Palamecia, since Pandaemonium does not have the same vulnerability to an aerial infiltration as Palamecia had. The entrance to the Jade Passage is a subterranean lake that is only revealed after the destruction of Castle Palamecia and the alliance of Leon. It is located on the long peninsula in the center of the World Map. The player can reach it by flying east of Mysidia or southeast of Altair. Jade's exit leads directly into Pandaemonium, and it is a long and winding dungeon that is only bested in terms of difficulty by the Castle of Hell itself.

Jade Passage's battle background


The Background Music that plays inside the Jade Passage is called simply "Dungeon".



  • Oddly enough, in the Famicon version of Final Fantasy II, the battle background used is the same as the one used in Snow Cave. However, the Jade Passage has no ice anywhere in any version of the game, and in the original Famicon the area is colored green and brown.
  • The unknown cave is a mirror image of Jade, and it is assumed by the four player characters in the Soul of Rebirth story mode that they are walking through the path to Hell. After meeting the Light Emperor, they learn that the cavern they found themselves in after their deaths was not Jade, but the passage to Heaven, Raqia.
  • The Jade Passage is alluded to as a myth in the world of Ivalice. The Pit Fiend's bestiary entry in Final Fantasy XII mentions that "A myth counts this being as one of the warriors set to defend the Jade Passage to the Devil's Palace". Incidentally, Pit Fiends can be encountered in the Jade Passage. In addition Pandaemonium is one of the Wonders in Final Fantasy Tactics. While its description does not mention the Jade Passage by name, it does mention that a warping device was the only means of entering Pandaemonium, which can be found at the end of the Jade Passage in Final Fantasy II.
