- "Rare ruins still retaining shape. A portal to a distant place is said to be here."
- — Quest counter description
The Makara Ruins (Japanese: ) is an area in Phantasy Star Zero.
The Makara Ruins is an ancient network of caves embellished by giant, blue crystals protruding from the many bright, pink floral fields that line its halls. Upon closer inspection, the crystals appear to have an ancient language chiseled onto them.
There are several missions that can be undertaken by the player at the Hunter's Guild quest counter. Certain quests grant the player rewards for beating them on specific difficulties.
These extra quests are only available once characters have reached a certain point in the main story for the character they are using. They can only be accessed upon making a multiplayer room either locally or online.
|A Bed of Flowers||Normal||Monogrinder x3|
|Cave Shadows||Normal||Photon Drop x1|

Although not important to the main plot of Phantasy Star Zero, Makara Ruins has several side quests that can be undertaken. These missions are optional and can be challenged with friends in local and online multiplayer.

If the player decides that they want to explore the area without an apparent goal or mission, Makara Ruins can be selected under "Access field." The difficulty and challenge ranking are as follows:
Message packs are mysterious messages found on the field that were left behind by unknown hunters. Many of the tutorial messages and LMA reports appear to be from the same person. Messages commonly appear after clearing dead-end rooms or around special areas such as the arena.
