I'm Atma... ... Left here since the birth... Forgotten in the river of time... I've had eternity to... Ponder the meaning of things... And now I have an answer...
I am the one known as Ultima... Forged an eternity ago and left here... Forgotten in the mists of time... Long have I pondered what I should do... Long, long have I pondered... But now it seems I have an answer...
Attacks with fire and ice. Also uses Quake. It has no weaknesses, so you might as well fight it out hand-to-hand.
Ultima Buster, originally translated as Atma, is a boss in Final Fantasy VI. It is found in Kefka's Tower and is a stronger version of the Ultima Weapon. Unlike most of the other bosses in the tower, Ultima Buster is optional and can be avoided if the player wishes. The boss appears in a prison cell room originally in Vector, standing in the exact same spot Kefka stood in when he was arrested.
|Final Fantasy VI enemy stats|
Ultima Buster attacks with level three spells like Firaga, Blizzaga, Thundaga, and Southern Cross. When its HP falls to 32,640, it incorporates Flare Star, Tsunami, Quake, and Meteor into its attack patterns. When damaged in any way twelve times, it will glow and begin storing energy; after three turns it unleashes Ultima. For this reason it may be wise to bring Celes along to Runic Ultima and absorb it.
Besides Ultima, many of Ultima Buster's attacks are elemental and can be absorbed or nullified with the proper equipment set-up. It should not be too difficult to defeat - though there is the likely chance the player will be unable to kill it in twelve attacks, unless they spam powerful spells like Flare and Ultima. Once it begins charging Ultima, however, it wastes two turns doing nothing, giving the player free reign to go all-out and destroy it before it casts the spell.
When killed, the Ultima Buster vanishes to reveal a Save point.

Ultima is Latin, and in many of today's Latin-based languages, for "The Last", in its feminine sense. However in the Spanish versions of many Final Fantasy games the spell name is "Artema", a closer transliteration of the original Japanese katakana.
