Ultimecia is one of the villains fighting for the side of Chaos in Dissidia Final Fantasy and Dissidia 012 Final Fantasy. A sorceress possessing the power to control time, her magical strength is immense, and she attacks with magically animated swords and axes, in addition to wielding traditional spells. Along with The Emperor, Ultimecia schemes to take control of the world from both Chaos and Cosmos and reign over existence in their place. She appears to her nemesis, Squall, disguised as Cosmos in order to manipulate him, both to test his resolve to face her and to keep him separated from his friends.

While Squall is her nemesis in the original Dissidia, her main rival in the 012 storyline is Tifa, whose positive, defiant attitude both intrigues and repulses her to the point of striving to crush it.

Ultimecia's design is virtually unchanged from her original appearance in Final Fantasy VIII. She dons a revealing red gown with a plunging neckline tapered just below the navel. A black fur ruffle extends along the neckline and eventually merges with her wings. Her feet and hands bear violet talons, and she has long silver hair, some of which is pulled up into two "Horns" on either side of her hair. The hair in the horns has red tips.

Ultimecia's first alternate outfit "Onyx Dress" colors her dress black and beige, while her claws turn red.

Ultimecia's second alternate outfit called "Edea's Corpse" is designed to resemble Sorceress Edea while under Ultimecia's control in Final Fantasy VIII. She wears a skin-tight dress with a plunging neckline and a fur ruffle around her shoulders. It is colored primarily black with a purple gradient along the bottom. A shell-themed headpiece adorned with jewels sits over her left temple with gold veins stretching over her cheek to her yellow eyes.

Ultimecia's manikin version, Transient Witch, is purplish-pink.


In battle, Ultimecia is a Sorcerous Fusileer. Her attacks are themed around Sorceress Knights, and consist of various magical bolts that can bombard enemies. Ultimecia's Bravery attacks have two forms, one where the player taps O, and one where the player holds the button down to change the attack's effects. She is also able to attack while moving. As a downside, Ultimecia has slow ground movement, and all of her HP attacks require her to charge them up to cause damage. Close-ranged fighters like Warrior of Light and Tidus have a great advantage against her as all of Ultimecia's attacks are long-ranged, and she has no melee capabilities.
