- "However, Akron's tomb was gone. Replaced by a dark passage into pure darkness. A hole in the spacetime continuum. A black hole, where not even light could escape from."
- ―Narrator, Epic Battle Fantasy 3
The Rift is the seventh and final area in Epic Battle Fantasy 3 after Volcano Peak. Its creation is the result of Akron regaining his powers and distorting the space around him, transforming what was once his abandoned tomb into a black hole that leads to a pocket dimension resembling the depths of space.
The Rift is the smallest area in the game, being little more than a straight path towards Akron. No NPCs are found there, nor is there a Warp Zone Crystal. However, a few treasure chests are hidden in small branches on the path; the chests themselves are invisible, but their positions are marked by coloured stars in the background. The enemies in the Rift are predominantly dark-based, but players can choose to avoid them on their way to Akron.

- Despite the narration describing the Rift as a black hole from which "not even light could escape", the party can actually freely enter and exit the Rift at any time after defeating the Pyrohydra.
