Like my ff12 section it's my first update. :D

Orthros?[edit source]

I'm confused. Why isn't the FF12 version considered an "Ultros." I liked what the anon user added, but it got removed. --Zephyrus11 20:47, 28 April 2008 (UTC)

Four separate?[edit source]

Ultros, like all the other boss atricles, should have a 'main' link to his boss page (so there is a universal look). But how should it be done as he has four seperate boss pages?

Translation Naming Scheme?[edit source]

Given 'Chupon' was revered to his intended name of Typhon, with the re-release here: http://finalfantasy.wikia.com/wiki/Typhon_%28Final_Fantasy_VI%29

Wouldn't bringing Ultros to 'Orthos' be appropriate? In case you didn't know: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Orthrus

There is a thematic mythological link between Typhon/Orthos

Artwork?[edit source]

Think someone could track down Uncle Ulty's original artwork, now that we can see such a thing exists? Drake Clawfang 18:13, 3 December 2008 (UTC)

Move[edit source]

Ultros FFVI is the only Ultros in the main-series. He has his own page so there's no reason for his name taking priority over Orthros on this page as Orthros is used in the most recent of translations. So do we move it to Orthros? At the moment, Orthros is only being used as a disambig... it should redirect here but it deserves to be the page, not just something that links here.

Ultros -> Orthros?  I Lion Heart I 20:53, 3 December 2008 (UTC) -- 17:03, 5 December 2008 (UTC)

Agreed. He's known as Ultros in side-games, but I'd say main series is more important, and in the main series he's Orthros. Drake Clawfang 20:55, 3 December 2008 (UTC)
I like Ultros better, but really who gives a shit in the end? Same thing. 3 against 1. Move. Now I would do it, if not for the fact that a little redirect was in the way... --BlueHighwind 20:10, 5 December 2008 (UTC)
I tried to move it yesterday, but yeah, damn redirect. Drake Clawfang 20:13, 5 December 2008 (UTC)

Move Back[edit source]

I think we may need to move back to Ultros. With The After Years and Dissidia both using "Ultros", it seems that's the more recurring name again. Drake Clawfang 21:55, November 13, 2009 (UTC)

It seems that Square can't make their mind whether to call it Ultros or Orthros. Bear in mind that in Dissidia Ultros is based on the VI enemy, but if IVTAY also calls it Ultros, I suppose a move won't hurt. The only thing putting me off the idea of a move is that the relinking is going to be very messy. Jeppo (Talk | contribs) 22:07, November 13, 2009 (UTC)
Trust me when I say the linking can't be anymore messier than with the status and spell splits that we did a while back (that's still being fixed ^^;;) Xenomic 22:23, November 13, 2009 (UTC)

All in favor of moving back to "Ultros"? Drake Clawfang 07:43, November 18, 2009 (UTC)

I have no quirks for moving it to Ultros if that's the most recurring name. Of course, that leaves whether or not later names for him will be Ultros or Orthros....which we won't know until then....which means moving it to and fro will be a pain in the bum, especially with linking. But that's up to you guys. Now back to me vacation. Good day...er.....morning! Xenomic 08:18, November 18, 2009 (UTC)
Yep, guess that we'll go with the name used in the most recent installments, as well as the most recurring name. 8bit 16:14, November 18, 2009 (UTC)
Personally, I wouldn't. Ultros in Dissidia is based off the VI enemy. Ultros in IV:TAY is based off the VI enemy.  ILHI 18:23, November 18, 2009 (UTC)
Just as Orthros in I is based off the VI enemy. And Orthros in XII is based off the VI enemy. It seems to me that Square decided to use Orthros for a while, then reverted back to the original translation. Jeppo (Talk | contribs) 18:45, November 18, 2009 (UTC)
Yeah I know. It just doesn't make sense!  ILHI 18:52, November 18, 2009 (UTC)
Most of what SE does doesn't make sense. Look at Shinryu in TAY, they renamed him too. Drake Clawfang 20:31, November 18, 2009 (UTC)

Ultros Boogie[edit source]

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DnXYVlPgX_o

That's the tune of Johnny C. Bad, right? Is this worth a mention on the page? - BattleFranky202 02:29, January 8, 2010 (UTC)

I wish! ...but no.Wikiguy 03:56, April 8, 2010 (UTC)

Eating the heroes?[edit source]

Best I can figure, all desire by Ultros to eat the heroes is pure Woolsey. In the GBA translation, he never once expresses a desire to eat the heroes (his lecherous comment toward Terra - which fits other appearances by Ultros - is similarly only in the GBA version of the game.) --67.161.104.218 17:43, February 12, 2010 (UTC)

Name Change (Again)?[edit source]

FF4 CC goes back to "Orthros". It's the most recent game to feature him and unless I miscounted, according to this page it's 4-4 for Ultros/Orthros. Do we wanna move it again? (Wish they'd pick one translation and stick to it). Doreiku Kuroofangu 15:47, June 4, 2011 (UTC)

Hurr.... why do they keep doing this <_< I don't know why they release D012 one month with Ultros and FFIV CC in another with Orthros. We're best off switching back to Orthros to maintain consistency. 8bit 17:23, June 4, 2011 (UTC)
Whatever works for you, though I must admit I known him as Ultros alot more than I did Orthros. Razordash 17:39, June 4, 2011 (UTC)

I think maybe keep it as Ultros for less hassle and also because his appearances as Orthros are the lesser-known appearances than his appearances as Ultros.Keltainentoukokuu 18:23, June 4, 2011 (UTC)

I too favor the use of Ultros, due to the equal share of both names' appearances and the FFVI appearances being the most notorious. - Henryacores^ 00:13, June 5, 2011 (UTC)

Soul Eater[edit source]

Hum, I don't think this Orthrus from Soul Eater will be a referenced to "our" Final Fantasy Ultros. Orthros is a mytical creature and this will be a reference to that. And I also can't understand the "Octopus Like Creature" from our article. http://souleater.wikia.com/wiki/Orthrus --Nubecielo 11:48, October 12, 2011 (UTC)

Voice Actors[edit source]

Is there any idea of who are the voices behind our sneaky-comical octopus friend? --BGMaxie 23:34, March 27, 2012 (UTC)

Ultros in 15[edit source]

By the end of FFXV Demo Duscae, a short trailer is shown. You may spot the violet octopus by the lower left of this picture: HERE 05:01, March 22, 2015 (UTC)
