Go To

Final Fantasy IV Unprecedented Crisis is a ROM hack of Final Fantasy IV by Pinkpuff.

This hack contains examples of:

  • Adaptational Badass: Due to being playable for longer than the first third of the game, Dark Knight Cecil can equip much more equipment and even cast Black Magic.
  • Continuity Nod: The Ice Cave from Final Fantasy appears as a level in the Underworld.
  • For Want of a Nail: Leviathan doesn't sink Cecil's ship, setting off a whole new chain of events. Notably, becoming a paladin is optional and the game can be beaten with Dark Knight Cecil.

  • New Game+: If the player defeats Zeromus with a solo Dark Knight Cecil, the game returns to the beginning, but with Cecil retaining his level, stats, and gold.
  • No Fair Cheating: Trying to enter Mist from the other side (using the well-known Mist skip glitch from vanilla FFIV) will result in being teleported to the final dungeon, almost inevitably forcing a reset.
  • Palette Swap: Many of the new bosses are palette swaps of vanilla FFIV bosses, including a set of 4 underworld fiends.
  • Point of No Return: The Lunar Subterrane is now impossible to leave once you enter.
  • Shout-Out: The Gold Hourglass is renamed to the Time Egg.
  • Theme Naming: The four underworld fiends are also named for Maelbranche from The Divine Comedy.


How well does it match the trope?
