FINAL FANTASY IV (ファイナルファンタジーIV), also known as FINAL FANTASY II for its initial North American release, is a role-playing video game developed and published by SQUARE (now SQUARE ENIX) in 1991 as a part of the FINAL FANTASY series. The game was originally released for the Super Famicom in Japan and has since been rereleased for many other platforms with varying modifications. The game was re-titled FINAL FANTASY II during its initial release outside of Japan as the original FINAL FANTASY II and FINAL FANTASY III had not been released outside of Japan at the time. However, later localisations used the original title.

The game's story follows Cecil, a dark knight, as he tries to prevent the sorcerer Golbez from seizing powerful crystals and destroying the world. He is joined on this quest by a frequently changing group of allies. FINAL FANTASY IV introduced innovations that became staples of the FINAL FANTASY series and role-playing games in general. Its "Active Time Battle" system was used in five subsequent FINAL FANTASY games, and unlike prior games in the series, IV gave each character their own unchangeable character class.

In the Super Smash Flash series


In Super Smash Flash 2, the final dungeon in this game, Lunar Subterrane, appears as a stage named after its counterpart in the Game Boy Advance version of the game, Lunar Core.
