Final Heaven (ファイナルヘヴン, Fainaru Hevun?), also known as My Final Heaven (俺式ファイナルヘヴン, Ore-shiki Fainaru Hevun?), is a recurring ability in the series. It is often a powerful physical attack, often a Limit Break, and is among the strongest attacks usable by Monks.
Final Heaven is the final Limit Break for Tifa, requiring the Final Heaven manual acquired from playing the correct tune on the piano in her house in Nibelheim on disc 2 after Cloud returns and while Tifa is in the party. It deals 25⁄8 times normal damage to a single target.
The tune to get the item is as follows:
Tifa can use Final Heaven as a finisher move to any of Cloud's Limit Breaks.
My Final Heaven is the final Limit Break for Zell, unlocked after reading the Combat King 005, and requires the player to input when it appears. My Final Heaven has a base power of 50 and deals physical damage to all enemies in the battle.
To get the attack to appear, the player must input attacks in the following order:
- Punch Rush → Booya → Heel Drop → Meteor Strike → My Final Heaven
- Punch Rush → Booya → Heel Drop → Mach Kick → Punch Rush → My Final Heaven
Final Heaven is a Hand-to-Hand Weapon Skill originally only usable by Monks wielding an upgraded pair of Relic Cesti. Another weapon has made the weapon skill available for Puppetmasters wielding a specific weapon as well.
Only through applicable weapons may adventurers use Final Heaven; when a wielder removes the weapon, they lose the ability until they wield it once more. The attack temporarily increases the user's Subtle Blow effect, is affected by the wielder's Vitality, and may induce Light or Fusion Skillchains, being of the Light and Fire elements.
Three weapons that allow their wielder to use Final Heaven are the Caestus, the Spharai, and the Heofon Knuckles. The Caestus only allows its wielder to use Final Heaven while in Dynamis areas, and the Spharai allows a wielder to use Final Heaven anywhere. Both may be wielded only by Monks at level 75. The Heofon Knuckles, meanwhile, may be obtained by upgrading cesti through the Trial of the Magicians, and may be wielded by Monks or Puppetmasters at level 85.

The name likely refers to the concept of seven heavens, the final heaven being reserved for the highest of divine beings. Seven Heavens is a part of religious cosmology found in many major religions, such as Islam, Judaism and Hinduism. According to Jewish teachings in the Talmud, the universe is made of seven heavens, the seventh heaven being where ofanim, the seraphim, and the hayyoth and the throne of the Lord are located. The ability originates from Final Fantasy VII, that has numerous allusions to the number.
