Maybe you noticed, maybe you didn't, but the vanilla battle background of the Fanatics' Tower has a line along the top of the screen above where the wall fades into darkness. Looking at it in FF6Tools without the borders around the edge of the screen, it seems to just be a few lines of pixels; I momentarily thought it may have been intended as a roof, but that makes no sense because no other interiors have a roof in this manner. Anywho, this patch - 1.0, unheadered rom - extends the wall up one tile to remove that unsightly error.

Thanks for the patch @DrakeyC.

I think the line pattern is actually intentional, though perhaps an ill-advised detail to add.
It seems to be the outer edge of the floor above, and the "fade into darkness" is the shadow being cast by that floor.
This is based on the same location shown in miniature form on the field (see attached image).

IMO this patch would be classified as more of an improvement than a fix.

The only issue I take with that theory is that it would be the only battle background with a hint of a roof. Even the Ancient Castle/Figaro Castle Basement has the upper parts of its walls taper into nothingness with no clear indication of a roof. Though that said, it isn't like FF6's dev staff didn't make some design choices here and there that stick out as odd to modders.
