Its decrepit chambers tainted by a foul and unholy air, the Shrine of Chaos is said to mark the site of his prison. It is here that Tidus begins his storyline, Terra loses control of her power and attacks Onion Knight, and Bartz spies on several antagonists.Squall and Zidane confront Ultimecia and Kuja here as well, and the Warrior of Light fights Garland at the end of his storyline.The Blackcrystal Sliver is the battlegen item obtained through stage destruction in this area. The location itself is featured in Music Sequences, including the "Opening Theme" Event Music Sequence and the " Underwater Temple" Field Music Sequence, as well as any Battle Music Sequence in which the player faces Chaos during a Dark Note.

Their bodies are covered in a rough, rock-like skin.

The upper half of their bodies is generally bulky, with huge protruding shoulders and massive arms, however some are more slender in appearance.

The Chaos Shrine is a straightforward arena with a large central room lined with destructible pillars dominated by a ramp leading from the doors of the shrine to a throne against the opposite wall (which can be destroyed with a Wall Rush).

Portraits of the Four Fiends can be seen in the corners of the room.

At the end of Shade Impulse, the heroes gather at the Shrine to battle Garland, and then open the portal to Chaos's realm, Edge of Madness.

Until the Warrior of Light faces Garland, all storyline sequences that take place at the Chaos Shrine happen on the roof or in the side passages, and not actually inside the shrine itself.

The shrine also features a Dark Crystal in Garland's chamber.

The Chaos Shrine was a ancient temple used as a hideout for the evil knight Garland.

Their heads are largely absent of facial features, apart from a large gaping mouth-like hole at the center.

Its function seems to be similar to a mouth, as indicated by the roars that are emanated from within, but Giants have also been known to extract balls of poison and fire from them.

They largely wear rudimentary clothing, such as loincloths and ragged robes.
