Final Fantasy VII - Materia


All of the materia apart from summons will be listed on this page, most importantly where to get them and what effects they have. Summons have their own page so that I could add more content for them. LV stands for the level of the materia (M being master), AP is for the amount of AP required to reach this level and MP shows how much MP is required to cast it. Where I have said "Reproduces" that means once you reach Master level, the materia will reproduce a new copy of itself starting with 0 AP.

Use the links below to quickly take you to the materia table that you want to look at.

Magic materia is extremely important in the game, because for the bulk of it the black magic will be your best attacking power. You will also need to use the white magic frequently to survive.

Command materia is important because it will help with your non-magic damage and increase your power. The higher level abilities in the materia often replace the lower ones once gained, such as Mug replacing Steal.

Blue Materia Support Materia Blue Materia


Support materia, as its name suggests, is used to support other materia. Thus it will be useless unless it is in a linked slot with another materia. The most useful one is "All" when paired with magic materia as it will change that spell from single target to target all. Others are very useful too, depending on the situation.
