The Tropical Island (南の島 Minami no Shima, lit. "Island of the South"), also known as Black Mask Cave, is a dungeon in Final Fantasy II. The party travels here in order to obtain the Black Mask, which was formerly worshipped by tropical islanders. On the fourth floor of the dungeon, there is a staircase that leads outside of the cavern. Here, members of a strange masked tribe make their home, and those in red garb sell the party equipment and consumable items.
On their quest for the Crystal Rod and the Ultima Tome, Firion and his friends reach the island, finding it is completely deserted and descend into the island's cave. By defeating a group of Big Horns, they claim the Black Mask. After obtaining this treasure and the White Mask, the heroes head to the Cave of Mysidia to find the artifact that will grant them entrance to the Mysidian Tower.
