Located across the Mississippi River from Central City, Missouri, Keystone City, Kansas first became home to settlers in 1806, shortly after the Louisiana Purchase. It began to grow rapidly after the Civil War, attracting farmers and becoming a common starting point for those who were moving to the West. After the completion of the Transcontinental Railroad, it became an important depot, attracting the livestock and meat-packing industries. Although the stockyards closed in the 1950s, the area has been revitalized and the old warehouses transformed into a fashionable retail destination. Keystone remains a center of industry, home to aircraft and automobile manufacturers, including Keystone Motors.
Keystone was the home of Jay Garrick, the original Flash. The Thinker, the Fiddler, and the Shade put it in suspended animation for years until it was discovered by Central City resident and second Flash, Barry Allen.
The Keystone is a key item in Final Fantasy VII.
The Keystone is needed to open the "door" in the Temple of the Ancients. A man living in a house near Gongaga Village had it, but gave it to Dio. Cloud makes a deal with Dio, and fights in the Battle Square for it. He eventually receives it, but because the tram down to Corel has broken down, the party has to spend the night in the Ghost Square. During the night, Cait Sith steals the Keystone and hands it over to the Turks. Cloud reluctantly continues on, as usual. When the party arrives at the Temple of Ancients, they find Tseng, badly wounded by Sephiroth. Tseng gives the Keystone back to Cloud, who uses it to enter the temple.

The Keystone is one of five Bloodstones through which the Gods of Tyria forever shattered magic in the world of Tyria over 1000 years ago. The Keystone is the piece required to assemble the other four.
