Salsa: "No way do I want to get lost in those cold mountains. Oh, I really wish I was back in Agogo Forest."
Frederic: "Indeed. Let's be certain we're well prepared before setting out on this journey."
— The party prepares to set of on their journey into the icy cold Sharp Mountains.
Fire and Ice Contrast

Sharp Mountains - fiery on top, icy below

The Sharp Mountains are mountain range, one of two that separate the region of Baroque from Forte. They house the Wah Lava Cave and, unlike Mt. Rock, are claimed entirely by Baroque. The entrance to the Church of EZI can be found in these mountains.


Spoiler Warning: Plot and/or ending details follow. (Skip section)

After meeting with Prince Crescendo and Princess Serenade, Polka, Beat, Frederic and Salsa agree to return to Ritardando so they can try to find Jazz and deliver the message that Baroque is no longer able to support Andantino. In order to do this, they must travel through the Sharp Mountains.

They brave the icy mountains, though not without some reluctance. At the summit of the mountain, they come upon an inn and decide to take a well-deserved rest. Once inside the inn, Polka has a flashback, as the inn reminds her of her home. In the flashback, Solfege tells her younger self the story of the astra, that a glowing astra lies within everyone's heart. She tells Polka that she has an astra which shines more brightly than anyone else's in the world and that it is leading her towards a darkness she must illuminate. Back in the inn, Polka is left befuddled.

Behind the scenesEdit

  • In Encore Mode, if the player speaks with a woman in a house in Baroque City, they can initiate a sidequest in which the party rescues her husband. They must return to the Sharp Mountains and then, in the second area, follow the barking of his dogs to a boss. The boss, which presents little challenge, is called Tracer and is a palette swap of the Bread Gang monster fought as the first boss.
  • Additionally, in Encore Mode, if playing the PlayStation 3 version the player can return with the EZI Free Pass item and unseal the plaque leading to the Church of EZI. In the Xbox 360 version, the plaque is present, but no item is ever provided to unseal it and the dungeon is not included.
