The Lifespring Grotto is one of the four bonus dungeons in the Dawn of Souls version of the original Final Fantasy, accessible only after defeating Kraken, this dungeon was originally the place were men and mermaids could live together in peace, according to the mermaid that stays at the entrance. Bosses from Final Fantasy V appear here. It is located within that whirlpool off the coast of Mt. Duergar, and can only be reached via boat.

The Lifespring Grotto has 20 floors, though its 20th-floor bosses are the toughest in the entire game. Floor 5 involves a mini-quest that results in the discovery and engagement with Gilgamesh, who has been skulking around a mermaid community. Floor 10 holds the gaping Atomos, who knows the dreaded Wormhole attack.

The final floor offers a player a choice much like the Earthgift Shrine and Hellfire Chasm. Either Shinryu or Omega can be fought at Floor 20, but not both during the same run through the Lifespring Grotto. Both bosses are Superbosses, so the player will have quite a fight on their hands no matter which entity they elect to fight. There is also the option of bypassing either boss and exiting the Lifespring Grotto through a teleporter (only possible at 5th and 10th floors.)
