This place... This whole shrine is a totema!
Ultima (聖天使アルテマ, Sei Tenshi Arutema?, lit. Ultima, the Holy Angel) is the Totema of the nu mou in Final Fantasy Tactics Advance, and is the second Totema fought by Marche Radiuju. Instead of battling Marche directly, she transports Marche inside of herself, where Marche must destroy a number of crystals, each of which can cast spells against him. After being defeated, Ultima can be summoned by any Nu Mou member of Clan Nutsy. When summoned, it deals a large amount of MP damage to all enemies.
The crystals attack the intruding Clan Nutsy by using a standard physical attack when they are close enough. Their main skill, Logos, is a very effective as it can Charm your units from four spaces away. Because they are just objects, however, they cannot move about and their evade is 0, which means all of your units' attacks are 95% accurate. Once all the Ultima crystals are destroyed, Ultima herself is defeated.
The Logos attack can only go so far. You will need to take advantage of this by fighting with Black Mages or Archers. Have any Moogle with 10 JP in this battle, because the fight can end easily by having the Moogle summon Famfrit. Additionally, you can enter the battle while the Charm Law is in effect, and thus the crystals will not dare to use Logos.
Alternatively you can equip items that nullify charm, although your stats will still go down when Logos is used.
As the Ultima crystals are stationary, they do not have any movement stats.

As the Ultima crystals are fought as a group, their stat growth is lower than most other Totema. While their HP, MP, and Speed are all very low, their offensive and defensive stats are all well above-average, particularly Attack and Defense.
