Skyfell Tower

From Dragon Quest Wiki
(Redirected from Tower of Shanpane)

The Skyfell Tower is a tower dungeon in the overworld of Dragon Quest III. It is located west of Khoryv.


Dragon Quest III: The Seeds of Salvation[edit]

Skyfell tower is home to Robbin' 'Ood and his henchmen, who fled to the spire after stealing the Golden crown from the King of Romaria. The King has requested that the Hero and his party apprehend the bandit lord and return his crown, which would start a series of conflicts between the world savior and prince of thieves.

Though this confrontation can be skipped in the NES Version of the game, it is mandatory in the the remakes in order for him to show up in the Kidnapper's Cave later on. The crown can be returned to the king for the chance to take on the role of monarch in Romaria but also can be safely left in its chest or kept with no consequences on the further plot.




  • The Japanese name, Shanpāni (シャンパーニ?), is derived from the historical French region of Champagne.
  • "Skyfell Tower" is likely derived from the Eiffel Tower, as well as a reference to how the player can leap from the higher floors. The connection to Mr. Eiffel's work of art is further enforced by the tower's location matching up with the real world's France.
