Cave of Oblivion

Lenneth in a Cave of Oblivion

It is said that the jewels and monsters that appear in the cave are different each time it is visited. The cave is a natural wonder – the envy of adventurers. But be extremely wary here. The monsters and other magical beings can be extremely powerful.

The Cave of Oblivion is a special dungeon in Valkyrie Profile. Unlike other dungeons, it reappears in every Chapter, and its location and contents are randomized. It is not possible to view the onscreen map once you are inside the cave. It may contain treasure, and, even in Chapter 1, it is possible to encounter enemies from Chapter 8.

Maps

The Cave of Oblivion has four possible maps and eight possible locations. The map depends on the location, which is determined randomly for each Chapter at the beginning of the game. Each location can only appear once.

Miscellaneous

Each Cave can only be accessed once: once you leave, it disappears. However, each Cave will remain marked on the map until you visit it, meaning that you do not have to visit a Cave in the same Chapter as it appears in. It is possible to hold off exploring the Caves until the final Chapter, when all eight will have appeared.
