All Materia types in Final Fantasy 7 Rebirth, explained

There are five different types of Materia in Final Fantasy 7 Rebirth. Materia is used to enhance the stats of you and your party members during combat.

  • Magic Materia (Green) – Magic Materia allows the wielder to use magic such as elemental magic, protection magic, and buffs/debuffs.
  • Support Materia (Blue) – Support Materia enhances the abilities of other Materia that are linked to it.
  • Complete Materia (Purple) – Increases you and your allies’ stats and passives. For instance, raising your HP or AP.
  • Command Materia (Yellow) – Grants you and your allies new abilities to use in combat such as magic attacks or unique abilities.
  • Summoning Materia (Red) – Allows you to summon the classic Final Fantasy summons such as Bahamut, Ifrit, Titan, and more.

You’re a Materia hunter

You can get more Materia in Final Fantasy 7 Rebirth in many ways. These include purchasing them from shops, earning them as rewards in minigames, purchasing them from Chadley, fighting in the combat simulator, completing Battle Intel, and finding them in the open world.

Best Materia combinations in Final Fantasy 7 Rebirth

There are some Materia that work well with others and enhance the abilities of those they are linked to. Only specific gear has linked slots that allow you to connect two different Materia. The following combos are some of the best in FF7 Rebirth:

  • Binding and Warding Materia – Combining these two will grant you resistance to the debuff when enemies try to use them on you.
  • Magic and Magic Efficiency Materia – The best of this combination comes with combining Healing Materia with the Magic Efficiency Materia but any magic spell will do. This makes it so that the spell costs less MP to cast, saving you MP in the long run.
  • Magic/Healing/Time and Magnify Materia – The Magnify Materia enhances the potency of the Materia that it is linked to. This is great when used with magic Materia or healing Materia as it will enhance the damage or healing done.
  • Anything with Level Boost Materia – The Level Boost Materia enhances the level of the linked Materia by one. This is a great way to enhance a Materia while you are trying to level it up. Think about adding the Level Boost Materia to ability Materia to increase the Chakra ability or even the Prayer ability.

Each character can use any type of Materia but there are some that work better on certain characters over others. For instance, Tifa is more of a front-line fighter so having the Chakra Materia is better than the Auto-Cast Materia.

Cloud

Cloud is a strong well-rounded character that is always in your party. Because of this, you will want a strong build for him. We recommend the following Materia for Cloud:

  • Healing Materia
  • Magic Efficiency Materia
  • Precision Defense Focus Materia
  • HP Up Materia
  • Fire and Ice Materia
  • Assess Materia
  • Jump Materia

Tifa

Tifa is more of a front-line fighter than a distance or magic fighter. Because of this, she excels with Materia which lets her get more hits in and raise her ATB gauge quickly. Of course, you may want to raise her Materia slots and get her Materia which raises the amount of AP her skills generate. We recommend the following Materia for Tifa:

  • Chakra Materia
  • Steadfast Block Materia
  • ATB Stagger Materia
  • Skill Master Materia
  • HP Up Materia
  • Auto-Weapon Ability Materia
  • AP Up Materia
  • First Strike Materia (For ATB Boost at the start of battle)

  • Fire and Ice Materia
  • Wind and Lightning Materia
  • Poison and Petrify Materia
  • Disempowerment Materia
  • Auto-Cast Materia
  • Prayer Materia

Barret

Barret is a great distance fighter thanks to his Gatling gun arm. He generally has a higher armor stat and more HP than other characters.

  • Warding Materia
  • HP Up Materia
  • Gravity Materia
  • Lightning and Wind Materia
  • Steadfast Block Materia
