The Black Citadel is the final dungeon of Dragon Quest VIII.
After the party defeat Marcello in Neos, believing him to be possessed by Rhapthorne's Scepter, Rhapthorne reveals that Marcello had in fact been able to control the Scepter, but when the heroes defeated him, Rhapthorne was able to take control.
Marcello, under Rhapthorne's control, throws the Scepter into the huge statue of the Goddess. The statue is ripped to pieces, freeing Rhapthorne's body, and then, the Black Citadel rises from beneath Neos, destroying the town and leaving it in ruin.
After the heroes travel to the Black Citadel and defeat Rhapthorne, the Citadel begins to fall apart, and they have to run back out, facing several monsters along the way. Just as they are preparing to fly out using the Godbird's Soul, the ruins of the Citadel form a giant monster, Ruin, who the heroes are forced to defeat.
After defeating Ruin and escaping, it is revealed Rhapthorne was not defeated, and instead he returns, absorbing the remains of the Black Citadel into himself and calling on his hordes from the Dark World.
