Final Fantasy IX description

Ultima Sword (アルテマソード, Arutema Sōdo?) is a recurring weapon in the Final Fantasy series. It is similar to the Ultima Blade, being a very powerful sword that provides excellent attack power.

The Ultima Sword is the weakest knight sword available for Steiner, and possesses 74 Attack, can inflict Sleep with Add Status with 20% flat accuracy, and teaches the ability Stock Break that damages all enemies. It can be bought for 14,000 gil at Daguerreo (endgame) and stolen from Maliris.

The Ultima Sword is the second-strongest weapon for the Clavat race, providing 35 Attack and the Focus Attack Piercing Sweeps. It is obtained through the Greatest Weapon scroll, by using an Orichalcum and Ultimite.

Ultima means "the last" in Latin and many Latin-based languages. In the Spanish versions of many Final Fantasy games, the spell Ultima's name is written as "Artema", a close transliteration of the Japanese katakana.

A sword is a blade weapon used primarily for cutting or thrusting. The precise definition of the term varies with the historical epoch or the geographical region under consideration. A sword in the most narrow sense consists of a straight blade with two edges and a hilt. However, in nearly every case, the term may also be used to refer to weapons with a single edge (backsword).
