Mateus Artwork

Mateus is the Totema of the Humans in Final Fantasy Tactics Advance, and is the fifth and final Totema fought by Marche Radiuju. After being defeated, Mateus can be summoned by any Human member of Clan Nutsy. Two Dephs of Mateus also appear during the fight with Remedi in her Li-Grim form.



Mateus being summoned in battle

Mateus is accompanied by four Vampires, two on each side. The shrine in which the battle takes place is quite small, consisting of two flat areas that the opposite teams start out on, with a small 3-panel wide bridge connecting them over a wide abyss. Units can also sneak around the sides of the gap, though the Vampires can simply teleport over it. To combat Mateus and her undead cronies, you may wish to bring in a White Mage with Full-Life, a Summoner with Phoenix, and any Hunter. Full-Life will instantly kill a Vampire, however, Phoenix is a better choice because of its wide area of effect and 100% accuracy. If your Summoner has not learned Phoenix from the Nirvana Staff, Madeen is a good second option. You should place a melee unit with a move range of 4 or higher (perhaps a Ninja) in the front row within reach of Mateus. On that unit's first turn, it can score a hit on the Totema while your mages blast the Vampires with Holy spells. Mateus should only get off one spell, most likely Thundaga or Star Cross, before its absence of minions make it an easy target for a KO.
