The Mist Continent is plagued by Mist
The Mist Continent is a location in Final Fantasy IX. It is the first continent players encounter, and is home to several locations important for the game. It takes its name from its thick blanket of Mist which blocks out sunlight at lower elevations.

The Mist that covers the land is the power source for the majority of airships; only recently has Lindblum developed steam engines. The Mist is also known to spawn dangerous monsters. The Mist is discharged through the roots of the giant Iifa Tree on the Outer Continent.

The three nations are linked on both lower and higher levels, below and above the Mist. North Gate lies between Alexandria and Burmecia, South Gate between Alexandria and Lindblum, and Gizamaluke's Grotto between Lindblum and Burmecia. Most of the locations in Final Fantasy IX are on this continent, as it is the most populous. This is also why the Iifa Tree predominantly discharges Mist on this continent, as it stimulates the fighting spirit to trigger wars.

Spoiler warning: Plot and/or ending details follow. (Skip section)

Later in the game, towards the end of Disc 2, the party defeats the SoulCage in the Iifa Tree, and the blanket of Mist covering the continent dissipates. This renders almost all airships useless until the Mist returns worldwide at the start of Disc 4.
