Mt. Zugzwang is the final dungeon in Dragon Quest V. Called Mt. Evil in fan translations. It is located in Nadiria, it houses the mountain fortress of Grandmaster Nimzo. It is the site where Madalena is held captive and forced to pray for the gate to the human world to be opened wide enough for Nimzo. In the remakes, Nimzo's pawns have names of chess terms and pieces. Thus, in keeping with Nimzo's "chess names" theme, Mt. Evil was renamed Mt Zugzwang, a term used in chess.

Despite the presence of various recruitable monsters, no monster will be recruited within Mt. Zugzwang.
