The Ultima Weapon (アルテマウェポン Arutema Wepon?) is a Keychain for Sora's, Data-Sora's, Riku's, Terra's, Ventus's, and Aqua's Keyblades introduced in Kingdom Hearts. It is one of the most powerful Keyblades, and requires an incredible amount of effort to obtain in each game. Unlike other Keychains, each game's version of the Ultima Weapon has a different design, and shares only the name and the phenomenal quality of its stats.

Design[edit]

The Ultima Weapon Keyblade is named after the eponymous sword in the Final Fantasy series. The Ultima Weapon is typically shown within the Final Fantasy series as a long sword, with a glowing blue/white blade and a golden handle. It is usually the strongest weapon for the main protagonist in the games it appears in.

The Kingdom Hearts version of the Ultima Weapon is strongly reminiscent of the Dream Sword, but is wrapped in an ornate gold filigree in a pattern slightly reminiscent of fish bones. The teeth of the blade are a golden version of the crown charm Sora wears, and the Keychain token, attached to the blade by shimmering thread, is a gilded heart, used throughout the series to refer to a complete being, instead of a Heartless or Nobody. It also bears one heart just above the guard and another just next to the crown making up the teeth of the blade, both of which are present in the Kingdom Hearts II version. In the game, the blade's size is smaller compared to the hilt, compared to its design in the official artworks. This version is also used in Kingdom Hearts: Chain of Memories and Kingdom Hearts Re:coded. Small circular ripples and bolts of light are emitted whenever Sora strikes a target with it.

The Kingdom Hearts II version retains most of its Kingdom Hearts version elements, except for the colors (blue, white and gold), the crown-and-heart keychain, and the Dream Sword. It also includes many more crowns into its design, including one at the tip of the blade, near the crown "teeth", two making up the guard, three in the chain, and the aforementioned combination of a crown and the original heart Keychain as the token.

The Kingdom Hearts Birth By Sleep version has elements from both previous Kingdom Hearts games. Its style is similar to the Kingdom Hearts version, but its color scheme is similar to the Kingdom Hearts II version. It also uses stars and the Wayfinder design instead of crowns and hearts. It is mostly a pale, almost glowing blue with white and gold. The teeth and Keychain are a blue Wayfinder, similar to Aqua's, with the original heart in the middle instead of the Terra's Mark symbol.

The Kingdom Hearts 3D: Dream Drop Distance version has the design similar like the first Kingdom Hearts game with minor changes. The color scheme is somewhat a combination between the first and second Kingdom Hearts games, as it has yellow on the blade connector, and the teeth and light blue color on the guard and the filigree ornament. The teeth is a Spirit Dream Eater's emblem within a crown. The keychain is a variation on the Kingdom Hearts II heart and crown design, except with the heart above the crown.

Recipes[edit]

Kingdom Hearts[edit]

Ultima Weapon can be synthesized once the fifth list is unlocked.

Kingdom Hearts Final Mix[edit]

Ultima Weapon can be synthesized once the sixth list is unlocked.

Kingdom Hearts II[edit]

The Ultimate Recipe is found in a chest at the Mansion: Basement Corridor. The Ultima Weapon is a rank S synthesis item that provides 119 EXP. An Energy Crystal is required to reduce the Orichalcum+ required for synthesis, as there are only 7 in the game; this means that the Ultima Recipe cannot be synthesized unless the Moogles are at least level 2. As Serenity items are part of the recipe, they cannot be used to upgrade it.

Obtaining Ultima Weapon[edit]

Kingdom Hearts: Chain of Memories[edit]

Sora can obtain the Ultima Weapon card in a Castle Oblivion Bounty room after both games are cleared.

Kingdom Hearts Birth by Sleep[edit]

Terra, Aqua, and Ventus can obtain the Ultima Weapon after clearing Villains' Vendetta in the Mirage Arena.

Kingdom Hearts Re:coded[edit]

Data-Sora can purchase the Ultima Weapon for 1500000 SP from the System Sector in Hollow Bastion's Entrance Hall (UL).

Kingdom Hearts 3D: Dream Drop Distance[edit]

Sora and Riku can obtain the Ultima Weapon by defeating Julius.

Gameplay[edit]

The Ultima Weapon is an extremely powerful Keyblade with an impressive reach. It is generally the most powerful Keyblade in each game that it appears, with balanced stats near or at the maximum for that game. In Kingdom Hearts II and Kingdom Hearts Re:coded, the abilities attached to the Ultima Weapon are some of the most useful in the game. Despite this, there are usually Keyblades which exceed the Ultima Weapon in a specific stat, such as Strength, while being inferior in other stats, such as Magic. In Kingdom Hearts Birth by Sleep Final Mix, however, the Ultima Weapon is actually inferior to the Master's Defender and Royal Radiance across the board.

Other appearances[edit]

Both the Kingdom Hearts and the Kingdom Hearts II versions of Ultima Weapon were released with three other Keyblades in a special Play Arts Figures accessory set, Play Arts Arms.

Through the use of a cheating device, textureless versions of the Ultima Weapon can be obtained in Kingdom Hearts II. These are the "Edge of Ultima", a version of the original Ultima Weapon with a glitched appearance, and the "Detection Saber", a second copy of the original as well, except slightly larger. When these Keychains are accessed in Sora's Items menu, no picture of the Keyblades are shown, only map icons.

Kingdom Hearts 358/2 Days[edit]

Ultima Weapon KHD.png

In Kingdom Hearts 358/2 Days, Ultima Weapon is an Ability Panel, instead of a Keyblade, that raises the Strength of the user's equipped weapon. It can be redeemed for 255 Challenge Sigils at the Moogle Shop.
