Support Materia (Blue)

A full list of all of the Support Materia found within Final Fantasy VII. Support Materia needs to be paired with another type of Materia in order to benefit from its effects. Check out the Materia Pairing section in the Tips and Tricks area for more information on how to effectively pair Materia.


Support Materia Icon Added Cut Materia
Description:
This Materia allows a character to do a standard attack whenever the paired Materia is used. The attack will hit the same target that you use the spell on. There tends to be better Materia to pair Magic Materia and Command Materia with which are listed further on down this page that are more useful and powerful than Added Cut.

Location:
Added Cut can be picked up at the Great Glacier on the eastern-most side of the map. Check out the Great Glacier section for more information on where to find it. This Materia can still be picked up if you missed it.

Support Materia Icon Added Effect Materia
Description:
Added Effect allows you to either cause status effects when using the Attack command if you pair the Materia on your weapon. It allows you to make a character immune to the same status effects if you pair the Materia on a character’s armor.

The following Materia pairings are possible:

Magic Materia Icon Mystify Materia: Confusion, Berserk
Magic Materia Icon Poison Materia: Poison
Magic Materia Icon Seal Materia: Sleep, Silence
Magic Materia Icon Time Materia: Slow, Stop
Magic Materia Icon Transform Materia: Mini, Toad
Magic Materia Icon Destruct Materia: Instant Death
Summon Materia Icon Choco/Mog Materia: Stop
Summon Materia Icon Odin Matera: Instant Death
Summon Materia Icon Hades Materia: Confusion, Mini, Poison, Silence, Sleep, Toad

Pairing Hades Summon Materia with Added Effect Materia yields the strongest effect and it is recommended that you pair it on a weapon. You can equip a Accessory Icon Ribbon accessory instead to negate the negative status effects.

Location:
The Added Effect Materia can be picked up in the Cave of the Gi in Cosmo Canyon. There is no way to obtain the Materia if you missed it on your first pass through.

Support Materia Icon All Materia
Description:
All Materia is one of the more important Materia that you will receive in the game. It allows healing spells to be cast on all party members and it allows offensive spells to be cast on all enemies on the battle screen. It can be paired with any Magic Materia but has no effect when paired with a Command Materia.

Location:
There are many All Materia that can be picked up during a regular play through of the game including:

The Sector 7 Slums in one of the houses near Tifa’s 7th Heaven
The Shinra Building on the 63rd floor after completing the coupon puzzle
The Cargo Ship after you move Yuffie out of the way
The lower pathways of Mount Nibel
In the center of the Great Glacier

Red XIII joins your team equipped with an All Materia and you can also purchase them in the shop at Fort Condor (and a few of the other shops later on in the game.

Support Materia Icon Counter Materia
Description:
This Materia is not the same as Counter Attack Materia nor Magic Counter Materia. This Materia needs to be paired with a Command Materia - it can be paired with Steal, Sense, Throw, Deathblow, Manipulate or Mime.

Location:
Counter Materia is found in the depths of the Northern Cave. It can be obtained as soon as you have reached disc 3.

Support Materia Icon Elemental Materia
Description:
This Materia can be paired with any elemental-type Materia to have an equipped weapon take on those properties. Equipping it on an armor will cause that armor to cause half damage, to nullify the damage altogether or to absorb the damage (depending on the level of the Materia). This can be incredibly beneficial on specific fights listed throughout the walkthrough.

Location:
There are two Elemental Materia available for pickup. The first can be found in the Shinra Building on the 62nd floor in the library. The second can be found at the Mako fountain that Sephiroth and Cloud first come across during the pass through Mount Nibel.

Support Materia Icon Final Attack Materia
Description:
Allows a character to use the paired Materia as soon as they are KO’d on the battlefield. This can be extremely effective if it is paired with Summon Materia Icon Phoenix Materia (which will then revive the KO’d character) or Magic Materia Icon Revive Materia, but it can be paired with nearly any Command or Magic Materia.

Location:
Final Attack Materia can be picked up at Battle Square in Gold Saucer by earning enough BP. Check out the Battle Square side quest section for more information.

Support Materia Icon HP Absorb Materia
Description:
This Materia can be paired with Magic Materia or Command Materia to cause it to absorb HP anytime you use that Materia. The amount of HP restored is equal to 10% of the damage done by the attack.

Location:
HP Absorb is picked up in Wutai during the side quest with Yuffie. It can be picked up on disc 3 as well if you did not complete the side quest in Wutai. It can be picked up in the basement of Yuffie’s house with all of the cats.

Support Materia Icon Magic Counter Materia
Description:
Similar to Counter Attack Materia and Counter Materia but this one is used to counter attack with the paired Materia which can be either Magic Materia or Command Materia. It automatically selects the highest level of spell or ability that you have access to (for example, Bolt3 over Bolt2).

Location:
You can pick up the Materia in the Northern Crater hidden in a wall (shown in the screenshot) or as a prize for Chocobo Racing (if you get lucky).

Support Materia Icon MP Turbo Materia
Description:
This Materia causes extra MP to be used which causes Magic Materia to be more powerful and for magic-based attacks to do more damage. It can be paired with Summon Materia as well.
