—Matoya's brooms

Matoya's Cave is a location in the original Final Fantasy. It is the abode of the witch Matoya, and is located northeast of Cornelia. Matoya is not the sole inhabitant of the cave; a number of self-animated brooms also dwell here. They sweep the floors endlessly, and if the player attempts to converse with them, they will either chant a short song or give an inverted hint at the button input needed to access the World Map. PS3: Hold the "Dash" button (circle by default) and the select button while in 3rd person view outside and it will open the world map.



After defeating Astos, the Warriors of Light receive Matoya's missing eye. Matoya rewards them with a Jolt Potion for finding her eye, and then decides that the party is too ugly to keep around.


The cave's theme is called simply "Matoya's Cave".

The Wonder of Matoya's Cave

One of the Wonders discovered in a Errand is the Matoya's Cave. Its description is "the cave where the magician Matoya who served the ancient kingdom of Ronka lived. She was well liked by the people, but after creating a demon, she was feared as a sorcerer." In the PlayStation version, Matoya was mistranslated as being a man; this was corrected in the PSP version.
