An EX Dungeon is a special or bonus dungeon hidden within various Tales games.
These dungeons are not typically accessible until after the player defeats the main storyline and creates a completed file, though in some games the player is able to stumble across the dungeon's entrance without being able to actually go in yet.
Because they occur post-game, enemies and bosses contained within these dungeons tend to be of much higher difficulty than monsters and bosses in the final dungeon. As a result, this dungeon often aids players in the post-game quest to reach maximum level.
In some games, EX dungeons also contain rare items either within the dungeon itself or as rare drops by enemies within the dungeon. They also hold a higher likelihood of providing cameo battles within the game as some bosses in these dungeons will be characters from preceding Tales titles.
