Materia, the beautiful, luminescent crystals found throughout the world of Final Fantasy VII. All magic requires Materia and there are many, many Materia. Some are easy to find or even given to you as you progress in the game; while others can be missed if you don’t have a careful eye. A few can’t even be obtained until you’ve beat the game. Fortunately, we know where to find and how to use every Materia in the Final Fantasy VII Remake.

What is Materia anyway?

In the world of Final Fantasy VII, Materia are pieces of crystalized Mako, the lifeblood of the planet. These powerful crystals grant the holder the ability to cast spells, boost their stats, and even summon incredible spirits to fight alongside them in battle. In order to use magic in the Final Fantasy VII Remake, you’ll need to scour each stage to find these glowing crystals. Fortunately, you can go back and replay using the Chapter Select feature in case you miss one.

And just like that, your Materia is equipped. While you can swap out Materia easily, you can only equip as many Materia as you have slots in your weapons and accessories, so choose wisely!

The more you use a particular Materia, the more AP or Ability Points your Materia will earn. Unlike SP which you spend to enhance your characters’ stats, AP are applied automatically. So, use those Materia a lot and you’ll find they level up, granting you access to even more magic.
