|“You are in Rock-Bottom, and there is no further to fall.”|
|— Fungus to Cole in "The Real Fall"|
Rock-Bottom are the shores of a subterranean cavern in the Dungeons of Shintaro.
After the Lowly fell into through the trap door, they somehow made it to Rock-Bottom and spent years underground.
Cole, Vania, and Wu end up at Rock-Bottom after the whirlpool sucks them in. The three land in a small lake, but Cole is able to pull out Vania and Wu. Cole then decides to lie down when Fungus greets him. However, Cole faints.
Cole wakes up and is greeted by the Lowly, who introduce themselves. Cole asks if they can participate in another quest, but all of them hesitate and don't answer. Korgran then tells Cole, Wu, and Vania their story while in the cave.
The group begins exploring the caves, but cannot find a way out. They head back to Rock-Bottom, where Cole's frustration for not finding a way out causes him to get upset. Wu poses a question to Cole, and he talks about feeling his mother's presence ever since discovering the necklace. He then questions why her mother would ever be down here. Wu tells Cole that Lilly was even more powerful due to being the closest to the Earth, and instead of the Skull Sorcerer trying to bury Cole as deep as possible, Cole has the possibility to find his true Elemental Powers. This gives inspiration to Cole, who tries to find his true powers.
Cole concentrates and his hands begin to glow. Suddenly, the immense rocks start to float and Cole uses a robust Earth Punch to discover a hidden cave underwater. Everyone follows Cole's lead as they swim inside the cave and leave Rock-Bottom.
- Rock-Bottom shares the same name from the city of Rock-Bottom from the series Spongebob Squarepants.
