The roiling skies let loose a vile beast without a soul: Omega was its name.
Book in Final Fantasy V
It is one of two recurring superboss types in the series, both called Omega: the robotic dimension-hopping Omega, and the Omega Weapon that often appears as the "final form" of the Weapon creatures. Yet another type of Omega exists in Final Fantasy: Unlimited.

Profile[edit | edit source]
Omega is a silver steel quadrupedal robot with a round body and four spider-like legs. It has no head, and the central body is dominated by a large, yellow, pupil-less eye. Its signature attack, Wave Cannon, does heavy non-elemental damage to the party. Omega frequently uses Earthquake, Flamethrower, and Maelstrom, and otherwise uses technologically-themed attacks.
As with other recurring powerful bosses, like Shinryu or Gilgamesh, it is hinted that several of the "Omegas" in the series are the same entity across several games, traveling between worlds via the Interdimensional Rift. According to the Urutan-Yensa bestiary entry in Final Fantasy XII, Omega Mark XII was created by an inventor for the request of an unknown patron to defeat a monstrous wyrm. After giving birth to a brood of Weapons, the original Omega escaped after the inventor and his patron had a falling out.
Dissidia Final Fantasy refers to Omega as a powerful machine created by an ancient civilization to destroy another powerful entity that travels dimensions and is still aiming to complete this objective. In Final Fantasy XIII-2, Omega was sealed away within another dimension due to its power and need to destroy everything and everyone around it. In Final Fantasy XV Omega was created by an ancient civilization to slay the gods, and given the ability to warp between dimensions.
The incarnations of Omega appearing across the series may be either the same entity traveling between worlds, or they are shades of the original Omega, as the Final Fantasy XII information on Omega implies, that were sent out to different worlds by the original Omega that created them. Based on Final Fantasy XII stating Omega was meant to destroy a powerful wyrm (or dragon), and Dissidia stating Omega was created to destroy a "massive power", it may be that Omega's objective is to destroy Shinryu, a powerful dragon that often appears parallel to Omega as another superboss and who also has the power to travel between dimensions. This is supported by Shinryu's Museum profile in Dissidia 012 Final Fantasy, which mentions Shinryu travels the Rift in search of Omega. In Final Fantasy XIV, Omega and a primal manifestation of Shinryu face off against each other in a cataclysmic battle, with Omega defeating the apparition of his enemy. However, it is later revealed that Omega was truly created to defeat Midgardsormr, the father of dragons, whose appearance inspired the myth of Shinryu in the game's universe.
Appearances[edit | edit source]
Omega appears in the GBA/PSP/iOS/3DS versions. It is one of two bosses fought at the end of the Lifespring Grotto, the other being Shinryu. It uses a powerful Wave Cannon attack to hit the entire party and has high defenses.
Defeating it yields the Murasame. Its sprite in the Dawn of Souls release is a modified sprite of Omega from Final Fantasy V, while in the 20th Anniversary and the iOS release, the sprite is of higher quality.
Omega appears as one of the bosses representing Final Fantasy V. It wanders around B14 in the Depths and can be avoided. It can counterattack with its special Omeguard, which reduces all damage it takes to a single digit for the next attack or two. Its normal attacks are powerful, and include its signature Surge Cannon, which can do several thousand damage to the entire party. It drops the fabled Hero's Shield upon defeat.
Omega's first appearance in the series: it appears in the Interdimensional Rift wandering a small plateau outside a save point. Omega can be avoided with careful stepping, and is thus optional. In battle it uses powerful attacks and is fast, but is vulnerable to Stop—although Stop wears off quickly, this still gives Omega a large weakness. Defeating it earns the party the Omega Badge to show proof of their victory.
Omega appears in Chains of Promathia Mission 6-2 and its power increases as it takes damage. It does not turn to attack enemies but merely swats them with the nearest limb.
Although it is strong, Omega is small enough to fit on an airship. A prototype, known as Proto-Omega, awaits those at the heart of Apollyon and is more powerful. A third variant, known as the Pantokrator, has been seen in Abyssea - Uleguerand.
Omega Mark XII is described as a war-machine with weapons stronger than any modern ones, and is located at the Great Crystal. It is available to fight once the Hunt for the Elite Mark Yiazmat has been accepted; if the party visits its area beforehand, it will appear in a dormant state, in the shape of a giant coffer, and cannot be roused.
Defeating it earns the party the Omega Badge, one of the loot items needed to acquire the Wyrmhero Blade. Omega had 10 million HP in the Japanese release, but was weakened to a mere 1 million for the North American and PAL releases. Despite its HP being surpassed by other superbosses, Omega Mark XII has the highest strength, defense and magick power, as well as being the only level 99 boss.
Omega is an optional DLC boss. Defeating it, as with other monsters, allows the player to recruit it as a party member to the Paradigm Pack. Omega uses Flamethrower, Missile and its signature Wave Cannon.
Initially unseen, Omega has been mentioned as a dormant Allagan superweapon discovered beneath the Carteneau Flats in the aftermath of Bahamut's rampage. It is described as being so powerful it dwarfs that of the Ultima Weapon. Much of the unrest in Ul'dah during later parts of A Realm Reborn Main Scenario were due to machinations of Teledji Adeledji in a bid to seize control of the area. At the end of Heavensward, the hulk awakens to battle Shinryu, and plays a role in Stormblood as the focus of the Omega raid series.
Omega is a new superboss added to the Royal and Windows Editions, fought in the final dungeon. It is an ancient god-killing magitek armor of Solheimian design that is said to have "interdimensional" properties. It is homage to the boss's debut from Final Fantasy V.
Omega appears as the 50th floor boss in the optional dungeon Infinity Spire. He uses Wave Cannon that will hit every Adventurer within Infinity Spire, even if they are not fighting him. Defeating Omega rewards one of the Adventurers who survived the battle with the Omega Symbol, a level 50 necklace that adds +27 to all stats.
Two Crystal Armors, named Omega Slaves by their goblin worshipers, can be encountered in the interior of the Aerial Prison as optional field bosses. The duo were once secret prototypes of the Lilty Kingdom to develop an ultimate weapon powered by Crystals but after the fall of the prison, monsters snuck into the prison's secret lab and stole the new weapons that had been developed.
Omega appears as a high-ranked fire-elemental summon for the player to use. The summon's initial design is based off it's appearance from Final Fantasy V, but it's final design is based off the color scheme of the Omega Mark XII from Final Fantasy XII. Omega's special ability is Wave Cannon, which deals fire-elemental damage to all enemies. Summoning Omega costs 3 points from the Consumption Gauge.
Omega allows the wielder to use the following abilities:
- Firaga Breath I
- Firaga Breath II
- Firaga Breath III
- Upgrading stats
|Rank||Maximum Level||Signet Cost||Max HP||Max MP||Max Attack||Max Magic||Max Speed||Components Needed|
A soulless entity from a far away sky. Created by an ancient civilization as a machine capable of utter destruction, no one is certain for what purpose it was built. One source suggests it was created to eliminate some other massive power. With its creators long gone, it traverses dimensions, aiming only to complete its objective.
Omega is a strong summon that repeatedly reduces the opponent's Bravery by half during a certain period of time. The artwork used for the summon is from Final Fantasy V. Omega can be obtained in the second stage of the Inward Chaos storyline.
Aside from Omega's summon appearance, it is mentioned in the Cosmos Reports and is identified by name as a weapon of destruction used in war with the state of the narrator, along with summoned monsters. According to the reports, Chaos defeated the summons and Omega and sealed them away.
Omega is the name of a Ghost Card bearing the Final Fantasy V Omega Player Icon. Omega is a Level 100 Exdeath, and has the Purple Gem and Omega Badge to be won through battlegen, the latter a reference to the item won upon defeating Omega in Final Fantasy V. The quote on the card, "Roiling skies let loose a vile, soulless beast: Omega was its name" is a slight paraphrase of a book in Final Fantasy V that describes Omega and Shinryu.
A heartless entity moving always through dimensions. From from a lost civilization as their ultimate weapon, its powers proved beyond control and it was sealed away within the Rift. Beware of its Wave Cannon.

Omega appears as a boss.
Omega appears as an enemy. It mostly mimics its appearance and many of its attacks from both its Final Fantasy V and Final Fantasy XIII-2 incarnations. It can use attacks such as Pilebunker to cause a major earthquake in straight lines, Rainbow Wind around itself to inflict several status ailments at once, shoot Missiles in pairs in the front, Lethal Crush to pound attackers with its body with Pounce being a jumping version of the attack, Mustard Bomb which detonates many explosives around itself, and its signature Wave Cannon which deals major damage to everything in front of Omega. It can also use Mighty Guard to augment its defenses and Target.
Omega must be hit on its legs which will cause the machine to stagger and be more vulnerable to damage, however it will repair after a brief period of time and resume its rampage. When weakened it will employ Track which will cause Omega to turn red and frantically ravage everything on its marching path, doing major damage and moves very fast while doing so. If any of its legs are injured it can also stop any attack Omega is attempting to use. When further weakened it will upgrade its signature attack to Wave Cannon+ greatly expanding its range covering close to a 180° arc.
An ancient machine of destruction that wanders the Vortex. Upon detecting enemy factors, Omega instantly analyzes the enemy's genes, predicts the enemy's actions, and then selects the proper weapon to use to swiftly annihilate its target. Omega's power unit is built using technologies beyond modern day technologies, and it is believed it can remain autonomous near forever. Therefore, defeating Omega, which is undoubtedly a technological pinnacle, is akin to defeating ancient civilization itself.
