The Heaven's Cloud in Final Fantasy VII.

Heaven's Cloud, also known as Murakumo, Ama-no-Murakumo, and Ame-no-Murakumo, is a recurring weapon in the Final Fantasy series. A powerful sword, it is usually among the stronger weapons for Warrior and Samurai characters, though usually outclassed by other katanas, such as the Murasame and Masamune.




Final Fantasy III

The Murakumo is available for Level 99 Dark Knights in the DS remake and is tied with the Muramasa as the strongest katana.

Any of Auron's katanas may become the Heaven's Cloud in case they have the Break Damage Limit ability.

Final Fantasy XI

The Amanomurakumo is the Relic Weapon of the Samurai Job, available only to Level 75 Samurai after having completed an immensely lengthy and expensive quest (often taking months of time, hundreds of millions of gil, and the full assistance of an entire Linkshell community to obtain difficult Dynamis drop items). It is widely recognized amongst the endgame community as one of the most powerful weapons in the game, and is hands-down the strongest weapon available to the Samurai class because of the unique way in which it modifies the Store TP attribute - pivotal for the heavily TP-reliant Samurai Job - and its high Damage statistic (the highest of all Great Katana present in Final Fantasy XI).

Final Fantasy XII

The Ame-no-Murakumo in Final Fantasy XII.

The Ame-no-Murakumo is the third-strongest katana in the game.

Dissidia Final Fantasy

The Heaven's Cloud is a level 100 katana that increases EX Intake Range by +6m and boosts +68 Attack.


The name of the Heaven's Cloud is based on the legendary Kusanagi-no-Tsurugi sword of Japanese myth, which is also known as the Ama-no-Murakumo-no-Tsurugi. "Ama-no-Murakumo-no-Tsurugi" roughly translates as "Sword of the Gathering Clouds of Heaven", hence the weapon sometimes being named "Heaven's Cloud". In legend the sword is found by the storm god Susanoo in one of the tails of the Yamata-no-Orochi, and is one of the three Imperial Regalia used in the ritual of imperial ascension.
