My name is Ultima... I am power both ancient and unrivaled... I do not bleed, for I am but strength given form... Feeble creatures of flesh... Your time is nigh!
—Ultima Weapon prepares to face the party in Final Fantasy VI.

Ultima Weapon, also known as Atma Weapon or Ultimate Weapon, is a recurring superboss in the Final Fantasy series. A quadrupedal bio-mechanical monster, it first appeared in Final Fantasy VI as an ancient war machine created during the War of the Magi. The Ultima Weapon is the namesake for the "Weapon"-type enemies that appear in numerous Final Fantasy titles.

Beginning with Final Fantasy VIII, Ultima Weapon has been depicted as a weaker version of Omega Weapon, an even more powerful superboss that usually demands Ultima Weapon be defeated to challenge it. In later titles, Ultima Weapon has returned to being a standalone boss, often appearing alongside Omega and Shinryu in a trio of optional bosses. Ultima Weapon is also the namesake of the powerful sword, Ultima Weapon, which is sometimes obtained by defeating the monster.

Ultima Weapon first appears in the Dawn of Souls version and returns in all subsequent remakes. It is encountered in the Soul of Rebirth optional quest, in a chamber accessed from Machanon. It has 15,000 HP and resists all forms of elemental attacks. Defeating the Ultima Weapon allows the party to claim a copy of the Ultima Tome to teach to a party member.

Final Fantasy IV: The After YearsEdit

Main article: Ultima Weapon (The After Years)

Ultima Weapon is a boss representing Final Fantasy VI. It is an optional encounter in the Depths of the True Moon, and is one of the game's superbosses, boasting 230,000 HP, the highest of any enemy in the game including the final boss. Ultima Weapon has many powerful attacks including Crush, Bio, and Flare. In a behavior taken from Final Fantasy VI, it can buff itself and charge energy to cast Meteor. Upon being defeated, it drops the most powerful sword in the game, the Ultima Weapon.

In the 3D remake release Ultima Weapon is cut from the game with the rest of the Final Fantasy VI bosses. The Ultima Weapon sword is instead obtained from Lunar Bahamut.

Final Fantasy VIEdit

Main article: Ultima Weapon (Final Fantasy VI Boss)

In the original SNES translation, Ultima Weapon is mistranslated as Atma Weapon. It guards the passage to the Warring Triad on the Floating Continent, and is the strongest boss in the game at that point. It is one of the handful of enemies in the game to use the battle theme "Battle to the Death," and the first boss the player encounters to use it. It uses a variety of powerful offensive magic, including Mind Blast, which prior to the GBA release was exclusive to it.

In Kefka's Tower, the party faces the upgraded Ultima Buster. In the GBA and mobile releases, the third incarnation, Omega Weapon, can be fought at the end of the new bonus dungeon, the Dragon's Den, after the player traverses the dungeon once and defeats Kaiser Dragon.

Final Fantasy VIIEdit

Main article: Ultimate Weapon (Final Fantasy VII)

Ultimate Weapon is one of the five Weapons awakened by Sephiroth. It is fought at Mideel in a mandatory encounter, but cannot be killed, and after a few rounds it flees from battle. Once the party acquires the airship Highwind, Ultimate Weapon roams the skies and can be fought by ramming the airship into it until it stops and engages the party. Ultimate Weapon flees from battle after a few turns, but its HP does not recover when it retreats and the player can eventually whittle it down and destroy it over Cosmo Canyon.

When defeated, the Ultimate Weapon relinquishes Cloud's strongest sword, the Ultima Weapon. Ultimate Weapon itself crashes into the ground leaving a large crater, which allows passage to the Ancient Forest on foot.

Final Fantasy VIIIEdit

Ultima Weapon is fought at the bottom of the Deep Sea Research Center in an excavation pit. Accessing the final chamber in the Research Center either requires the player to reach the last door of the previous segment with 10 pressure units left, or have Zell Dincht in the party. The strongest Guardian Force Eden can be drawn from it, as well as the spell Ultima, making Ultima Weapon one of only two enemies in the game that can have Ultima drawn from them, the other being Omega Weapon. Ultima Weapon casts Gravija, Meteor and Quake, and with Omega Weapon has exclusive access to the attack Light Pillar, dealing an unblockable 9,999 damage to a party member, resulting in an instant KO.

The Ultima Weapon wields a modified model of Cloud Strife's Ultima Weapon from Final Fantasy VII.

Final Fantasy XEdit

The origins of Ultima Weapon are tied to the existence of Omega Weapon for the first time. When the former Yevon monk Omega was executed his hatred for Yevon was so strong it spawned the fiend Omega Weapon in the Omega Ruins, and a lesser form of Omega Weapon, Ultima Weapon.

Ultima Weapon uses a variety of status attacks, and the attacks Shimmering Rain and Energy Core to deal magical damage to targets. Defeating it allows the party to access the second area of the Omega Ruins where Omega Weapon is found. Ultima Weapon is one of only two bosses in the game that can be bribed, the other being Lord Ochu.

Ultima Weapon XIV
Main article: Ultima Weapon (Final Fantasy XIV)

Ultima Weapon appears in Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn as an ancient anti-primal war machine of the Allag civilization. The Garlean Empire finds the Ultima Weapon and entrusts it to Gaius Van Baelsar, who restores it to working order and uses it to absorb the primals Titan, Ifrit, and Garuda, to absorb their abilities. Gaius intended to use the Ultima Weapon to subjugate the beast tribes of Eorzea. The Ultima Weapon serves as the final boss of the main campaign, and can cast the magic Ultima in the second phase of the battle. If Ultima is cast, it results in an instant Game Over for the players.

Patch 2.1 added a Hard Mode version of Ultima Weapon that the players can battle that has higher stats and stronger equipment drops. The player can fight the Ultima Weapon again by talking to the Wandering Minstrel and recounting the tale of the battle to him.

In Final Fantasy XIV: Heavensward, several unmarked FATEs appear in Azys Lla in which Proto-Ultima is the main boss.

[view  · edit  · purge]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 more close transliteration of the original Japanese katakana.

Its Weapon moniker comes from the Weapon-type enemy, which are among the stronger enemies encounters.
