The Sylph Cave (シルフのどうくつ, Shirufu no Douketsu, lit. "Sylph's Cave"), also known as Sylvan Cave is a location in the game Final Fantasy IV. It is located at the northwest corner of the Underworld, and it is the home of the Sylph fairies. When Cecil and his friends investigate this cave, they discover that the Sylphs are caring for a wounded man. That man just happens to be Yang Fang Leiden, Cecil's old friend who was presumed dead after the Super Cannon incident. However, the Sylphs won't let Cecil disturb Yang. When Cecil comes back with a frying pan, he wakes Yang up with it. Yang insists on helping, however, the Sylphs insist that he cannot due to his condition. In return, the Sylphs offer their power to Rydia as a summon. In the DS remake, Yang will also give the player a certain number of his augments, depending on how many other augments the player gave him while he was still in the party.

Like the Passage of the Eidolons, the floors of the Sylph cave can damage characters as they walk across. As such, Rosa should cast Float each time the party changes floors to avoid this. In Final Fantasy IV: The After Years the floors no longer damage the party and can be walked on normally.
