Dissidia Final Fantasy (2015)Edit
Mateus's Malice reappears alongside the Emperor himself, in the 2015 Arcade rendition of Dissidia Final Fantasy. Unlike in the original game or Duodecim, however, the weapon acts as the Emperor's default weapon.
A rod handed down from another world. It was said to have been owned by an tyrannical emperor who had aspirations of world domination. This rod full of demonic power was created with an insatiable hunger for subjugation, the overflowing power of which sucks away at the SPR of any who come close to it. If one wishes to handle this weapon, it is necessary that they are of unshakably strong will.
It provides ATK+19, MAG+129, and HP +10% and has no element or resistance properties. It is obtained as the Emperor's Trust Master reward.
Mateus is the Portuguese form of the name Matthew, which means "gift of god".
