Weapons are creatures that appear in several of the Final Fantasy games. Monstrously powerful, they are usually some of the toughest bosses in their respective games. Common variants include the Ultima Weapon and the usually more powerful Omega Weapon.

Final Fantasy

Omega(Final Fantasy)

The Dawn of Souls and 20th Anniversary remakes included Omega from Final Fantasy V as an optional boss. It can be found in the Lifespring Grotto. Victory yields the Murasame, the strongest Ninja weapon. Also, the notable enemy Warmech is often considered a weapon, due to its incredible power. The sprite is a refined version of the original Final Fantasy V variant.

Final Fantasy II

Ultima Weapon

The Dawn of Souls and 20th Anniversary remakes included Ultima Weapon as an optional boss. It is a palette swap of a Behemoth sprite and proves to be a difficult boss. It can be found in the Soul of Rebirth dungeon, in an area that consists in a replica of the last floors of the Mysidian Tower. Defeating it grants the player the Ultima spell. The Weapon's look follows the trend set by Final Fantasy VI's version.

Final Fantasy IV: The After Years

Final Fantasy VI's Ultima Weapon appears as an optional superboss in the Depths. It knows some new attacks. After the fight, it drops the Ultima Weapon.

Final Fantasy V

Omega

Although not specifically named as a Weapon, Omega appears in this game as an optional boss in the Interdimensional Rift Caves. Its appearance is that of a spider-like robot.

This is the original appearance of the enemy, Omega.

An upgraded version called the Omega Mk.II appears in the Game Boy Advance remake in the new optional dungeon Sealed Temple.

Final Fantasy VI

Ultima Weapon

The Ultima Weapon was created as a weapon of mass destruction during the War of the Magi. It is fought on the Floating Continent. There also exists a monster called Ultima Buster, who resides in Kefka's Tower.

Final Fantasy VI introduced Ultima Weapon for the first time in the series. Both weapons resemble massive monsters rather than machines.

The Game Boy Advance remake included the Omega Weapon as an additional optional boss.

Diamond Weapon
Main article: Weapon (Final Fantasy VII)

The Weapons play a vital role in the storyline this time. There are also many more, a total of seven, each named after a precious stone except for Ultimate and Omega.

The weapons in this game evolve from robots or quadropod monsters into a variety of different designs, including the first upright Weapons.

Final Fantasy VIII

Ultima Weapon

The Ultima Weapon can be fought in the Deep Sea Research Center and the Omega Weapon can be fought in Ultimecia Castle.

Both the Weapons in this game are simple palette swaps of each other, apart from Ultima Weapon's Sword. It follows both the quadropod and upright trends set by Final Fantasies VI and VII by making the Weapon as a centaur-like monster

Final Fantasy X

Omega Weapon

Both the Ultima Weapon and the Omega Weapon can be fought in the Omega Ruins. Nemesis is one of the toughest battles in the game and is an original creation from the Monster Arena. Ultima buster also exists in this game in the original creation from the battle arena while not named a weapon it shares its name from Ultima weapon.

The "Twin Weapons" trend set by Final Fantasy VIII returns along with its six-limbed style.

Final Fantasy X-2

"Whatever you do, don't call it Atma."
—Bestiary entry

The Omega and Ultima Weapons returned for X-2 as randomly encountered battles on the Farplane and within the Via Infinito. While nowhere near as formidable as their former incarnations of the Omega Ruins, they still present quite a challenge to the party. A tougher version, Paragon, can be fought as the penultimate boss of the Via Infinito.

This game's Weapons appear as watered down versions of their former selves.

Final Fantasy XI

Ultima Weapon

Ultima and Omega also appear in Final Fantasy XI as bosses in the Chains of Promathia expansion, classified as Biotechnological Weapons. While Omega is reminiscent of its original form from Final Fantasy V, Ultima looks completely different than any other incarnation, appearing as floating, almost insectoid machine.

Final Fantasy XII

Omega Mark XII is located in the Great Crystal at Giruvegan. For this game its design reverted to the original concept used in Final Fantasy V of a gigantic mechanical spider-like creature, like the Final Fantasy V version, because it is basically just an overgrown Mimic. It is apparently capable of traveling between dimensions, another probable reference to the original Omega in Final Fantasy V being found in the Interdimensional Rift. It adds on to Final Fantasy V's version of Weapon by including the ability to fold up into a dormant state.

Final Fantasy Tactics A2: Grimoire of the Rift

Upsilon

Two Magick Weapons can be fought in the game. They are named Upsilon which, like Omega, is a letter of the Greek alphabet. The first is fought near Goug as part of the Heritor quest sequence, and the second subsequently appears in the Aldanna Range during the quest "Wanted: Magick Weapon". After defeating the second Upsilon, the player can read three pub notices, which are "Research Notes". These reveal that the Upsilons were actually based on the design schematics for the infamous Omega Mark XII (see above). The unnamed creator was possibly a Moogle, since the Upsilons are strongly implied to have been built in Goug. In a possible reference to the game itself, the notes state that the creator called the two later models "Upsilon A2" and "Upsilon A3". It also transpires that while Omega Mark XII was powered by Mist, the three Upsilons were built to utilise lava, snow and seawater respectively (with a substantial degree of success). While the second set of notes suggests that the player can fight the third Upsilon, it would seem that Upsilon A3's intake system was rather too efficient, as the final set of notes reveals that it went wild and exploded due to taking in too much water.

The weapons take their appearance from Final Fantasy XII, except for with two more legs.
