The Ultima Weapon in Final Fantasy VII.

Ultima Weapon (アルテマウェポン Arutema Wepon), còn gọi là Atma Weapon, là thanh kiếm xuất hiện trong nhiều tựa game Final Fantasy. Nó thường là thanh kiếm mạnh nhất trong game, và chỉ nhân vật trung tâm của game mới được mang. Từ khi xuất hiện trong Final Fantasy VI, Ultima Weapon đã xuất hiện trong hầu hết các game của dòng game chính, bao gồm cả các bản làm lại của các game trước đó.

Không giống như phần lớn các vũ khí khác, bị thay đổi ngoại hình từ game này qua game khác,Ultima Weapon luôn luôn là thanh kiếm có màu sáng xanh với trắng, bạc, hoặc vàng, và nhiều loại màu khác. Ultima Weapon lấy sức mạnh từ người sử dụng nó - vũ khí tăng sức mạnh của mình khi người chơi tăng HP, khiến nó trở nên mạnh hơn trong tay nhân vật có level cao. Để lấy được Ultima Weapon thường yêu cầu người chơi đánh bại một boss tùy chọn rất mạnh hoặc dành được item quý hiếm.

Celes using the Ultima Weapon.

The weapon's original appearance, the Ultima Weapon (originally translated as Atma Weapon in the Super Nintendo Entertainment System and PlayStation releases) is found in the Cave to the Sealed Gate. A second Ultima Weapon can be stolen from Rest during the final battle. Ultima Weapon is not compatible with Bushido, Runic, or the Gauntlet, and it also cannot be thrown. Terra, Locke, Edgar, and Celes can equip it. Unlike most incarnations of the weapon, the Ultima Weapon is given a backstory in this game. The Ultima Weapon was created during the War of the Magi as a magical weapon for use in battle, which was said to reflect the power of that who wields it.

Although its Battle Power is 255, its damage is calculated very differently than most weapons. The damage the Ultima Weapon does is based on the level of the character who is equipping it, and his or her current HP level compared to his or her max HP. When HP is high, the Ultima Weapon deals a large amount of damage. When HP is low, it deals a small amount of damage. The sprite used for the Ultima Weapon in battle is a sword of varying lengths. The higher the damage dealt is, the longer the sword is. At its max power, the blade is longer than the user, and leaves multiple images when swung. The weapon also ignores the defense of the target when calculating damage.

The Ultima Weapon makes a recurring appearance in Dirge of Cerberus, this time as a handgun, visually indistinguishable from Cerberus, Vincent Valentine's weapon of choice. It is a modified version of the Model Gun, a gag weapon found in Edge, however it requires 200,000 gil to modify it into the Ultima form.

This particular weapon fires standard handgun bullets, but deals more damage the more hits the player lands, similar to the way the machine gun does increased damage. It is considered to be Vincent's best gun.

Lightning's Ultima Weapon Gunblade.

The Ultima Weapon is a model of gunblade used by Lightning. It is obtainable by transmuting Lionheart using a Scarletite. It has the trait Quick Stagger, which allows Lightning to immediately stagger an enemy when the Stagger Gauge is at least 90% full with any strike. Though it does not have the highest Strength and Magic stats among her weapons, Quick Stagger makes it one of the most valuable weapons in her arsenal. Unlike other Final Fantasy titles, this weapon is not in its ultimate form, as it can still be upgraded into the more powerful Omega Weapon.

Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles[sửa | sửa mã nguồn]

The Ultima Sword, Ultima Lance, Ultima Hammer, and Ultima Maul are each the second-strongest weapon for their respective characters, all created by finding the Greatest Weapon scroll, and then obtaining Ultamite and Orichalcum so they can be forged. All the "Ultima" weapons have an Attack power of 35.

Though each character has a weapon stronger than their "Ultima" weapon, its true strength lies in its ability to make enemies flinch with every strike. Ordinarily, one would have to pull off a three-hit attack combo in order to make the foe flinch, or use a charge attack. With the Ultima Weapons though, the player could use simple combo strikes and the enemy would flinch with every hit, leaving the player free from being struck back. The Ultima Sword, Hammer, and Maul posses the same Focus Attack skill as the weapons born from the novice weapon scroll but the Ultima Lance has the same Focus attack as the Dragon Lance.

Cloud also gains the ability to pierce blocks with his melee attacks, while Tidus gains a boost to the range of his dodges.

Kingdom Hearts series[sửa | sửa mã nguồn]

In the Kingdom Hearts series, the Ultima Weapon key chain is usually the hardest item to synthesize, and is one of the most powerful Keyblades available with well-rounded stats and a long range. It is typically a gold, white, and blue keyblade with a serrated blade due to swirl designs along its length.

In Kingdom Hearts 358/2 Days, Ultima Weapon is an ability that occupies a single panel slot. It grants the player an additional 15 strength to any weapon they wield. It is only obtainable through the collection of every challenge sigil available in the game (a grand total of 255 sigils).

The X-Blade's, presented in Birth By Sleep, top section bares significant resemblance to the Ultima Weapon.
