Kaipo (カイポ, Kaipo) is a town in the game Final Fantasy IV. It is located in the southern half of the Damcyan desert, near an oasis. It is home to one of the finest doctors in the world, who is renowned for treating Desert Fever. Kaipo is one of four towns with a training room.
In the English localization of the DS version, Kaipo is pronounced [ˈkaɪ.poʊ].
Before the adventure begins, Tellah is living here with his daughter Anna. Edward Chris von Muir, the prince of Damcyan, travels to Kaipo disguised as a Bard, and he and Anna fall in love. Tellah does not consent to their union, so they elope and run away to Damcyan. Tellah then tries to pursue them, but he cannot defeat the Octomammoth, a monster living in the Underground Waterway that connects Kaipo to Damcyan.
The Dark Knight Cecil Harvey arrives here eventually with a wounded girl from Mist. He lets her rest at the inn, but she will not speak to him. That night, some soldiers from Baron enter the inn and demand that Cecil hand over the girl, a Summoner, as the King of Baron had proclaimed that the Summoners of Mist were too dangerous to be left alive. Cecil refused to hand her over, and defeated the Baron soldiers. The girl thanked him and introduced herself as Rydia, who the joined Cecil's adventure. The next morning, they heard that a sick girl from Baron was in the hospital. Cecil found out that Rosa Joanna Farrell, his girlfriend, had come down with a case of Desert Fever, and Cecil needed to find the Sand Pearl from the Antlion's Den to cure her. Cecil and Rydia went out in search of the Sand Pearl, and eventually found it and returned with Edward's assistance. They used the Sand Pearl on Rosa, and she recovered and joined the party. She informed them that the next target was the Crystal of Air at Fabul, and they needed to cross Mt. Hobs to reach the castle.
The night before the party left, Edward went out to the oasis and played his harp. A Sahagin appeared, and Edward had to defeat it. Anna's ghost appeared and told him to believe in himself and to be strong for the two of them. Edward managed to get over his sorrow, and was able to defeat the monster.
Kaipo is shown in the start of Porom's tale, during the flashback sequence. Later on, in Edward's tale, Harley will collapse from desert fever, and Edward must head to the Antlion's Den in order to get a Sand Pearl to save Harley. Afterwards, the party heads towards Baron.
