MAGIC MATERIA

See? Like my nifty lil' green bubble? ^^

Well, I guess that this is pretty much self explanatory, don't you think? Magic is magic, 'nuff said. Here you will see the list of magic materia from the game and my rather random descriptions of them, including how much it costs you on MP and how much AP you need to be able to get to the next level of the materia. (what? levels? yes, materia does grow, you know)

Some of the magic materia gathered can be pretty pointless in getting unless you like casting "Frog" on your enemies or something like that. Personally, I aim for the really attacking and good materia.

The drawback on equipping too much magic materia is that it weighs down on your party member's HP. This can be countered by putting in HP plusses, but in the early starts of the game, you have to be pretty careful on how much magic that you want to equip on your party members especially when their levels are low and the number of slots on the armor and weapons are pretty limited.

 

 

NAME OF MATERIA MAGIC COST (FOR EACH LEVEL) AP LEVELS NEEDED... DESCRIPTION
Restore
Cure 1 - 5 MP
Cure 2 - 24 MP
Regen  - 30 MP
Cure 3 - 64 MP
already set
2500 AP
17000 AP
24000 AP
Master - 40000 AP

Well, DUH, as you can see, all of these spells heal your HP ^^. Regen gradually restores your HP for a limited amount of time.

Heal
Poisona - 3 MP
Esuna - 15 MP
Resist - 120 MP
already set
12000 AP
52000 AP
Master - 60000 AP
As what the materia name says, these spells heal certain status effects that have been casted on your character: Poisona = heals poison, Esuna = heals most status effects, Resist = prevents new status conditions to be effective. Personally, I would just use items ^^.
Revive
Life - 34 MP
Life 2 - 100 MP
already set
45000 AP
Master - 55000 AP
Revive is what revive says, it revives your characters from the KOed status. Life restores 1/4 of your character's HP while Life 2 restores all of your fallen character's HP.
Lightning
Bolt 1 - 4 MP
Bolt 2 - 22 MP
Bolt 3 - 52 MP
already set
2000 AP
18000 AP
Master - 35000 AP 
You um..cast lightning, duh ^^. Each level of bolt damage is gradually increased and of course, there's a different variation of each level.
Fire
Fire 1 - 4 MP
Fire 2 - 22 MP
Fire 3 - 52 MP
already set
2000 AP
18000 AP
Master - 35000 AP
Like the above, you cast fire based damage. And Fire 3 makes everything go Ka-BOOM! Hehe.
Ice
Ice 1 - 4 MP
Ice 2 - 22 MP
Ice 3 - 52 MP
already set
2000 AP
18000 AP
Master - 35000 AP
You cast ice, which is my favorite element of all ^^. I like the crystal-looking things in Ice 2. So purty and blue swirly crystal thingies.
Earth
Quake 1 - 6 MP
Quake 2 - 28 MP
Quake 3 - 68 MP
already set
6000 AP
22000 AP
Master - 40000 AP
This is all earth based damage and it only works against those who are weak against earth based magic. All the spells look pretty cool and all, but I liked the more....elaborate spells.
Poison
Bio 1 - 8 MP
Bio 2 - 36 MP
Bio 3 - 80 MP
already set
5000 AP
20000 AP
Master - 38000 AP
All these spells cast poison damage, meaning that your enemies will forever be poisoned...that is if they aren't immune to it ^^. Big green squishy thingies surround your enemies....
Gravity
Demi 1 - 14 MP
Demi 2 - 33 MP
Demi 3 - 48 MP
already set
10000 AP
20000 AP
Master - 40000 AP
To tell you the truth...I never really used the gravity materia that much ^^;;; All I know is that this big black thingy shoots out and takes away 1/4 of your enemy's HP (Demi 1), 1/2 of your enemy's HP (Demi 2), or 3/4 of it (Demi 3)
Seal
Sleepel - 8 MP
Silence - 24 MP
already set
10000 AP
Master - 20000 AP
I did not use this materia EVER. If you're the type who likes to cast status spells, then go on ahead, I won't stop you. The success of the spell depends on each enemy.
Transform
Mini - 10 MP
Toad - 14 MP
already set
8000 AP
Master - 24000 AP
See the above ^^. If you really want to know, Mini makes your character into a pea size of itself and Toad turns your enemy into, well, a frog.
Mystify
Confu - 18 MP
Berserk - 28 MP
already set
12000 AP
Master - 25000 AP
See the above above ^^. Confu makes your enemy spin in circles, seeing stars, and attacks anybody and everybody while Berserk makes your enemy turn red with anger and only uses physical attacks.
Time
Haste - 18 MP
Slow - 20 MP
Stop - 34 MP
already set
8000 AP
20000 AP
Master - 42000 AP
Haste makes your characters move faster, for their ATB bars will...um...speed up. Slow slows down your enemies (duh) and stop freezes your enemies so that you can go free for all attacking w/o having them attack you for a short time.
Destruct
DeBarrier - 12 MP
DeSpell - 20 MP
Death - 30 MP
already set
6000 AP
10000 AP
Master - 45000 AP
Destruct...well...destroys stuff. DeBarrier destroys any barriers cast by your enemies, DeSpell destroys any time conditioned spells while Death..well...kills your enemies ^^. It depends on the success rate for it to die.
Exit
Escape - 16 MP
Remove - 99 MP
already set
10000 AP
Master - 30000 AP
I also never used this materia whatsoever. All it does is remove you from battle or remove your enemies from battle. It doesn't work all the time, though.
Barrier
Barrier - 16 MP
MBarrier - 24 MP
Reflect - 30 MP
Wall - 58 MP
already set
5000 AP
15000 AP
30000 AP 
Master - 45000 AP
These really help you, but this materia can be negated with the Big Guard enemy skill. Barrier cuts physical attacks in 1/2, MBarrier is magic spells in 1/2, Reflect reflects magic, and Wall casts both Barrier and MBarrier.
Shield Shield - 180 MP
uh...you need to go 
to second star:
10000 AP
Master - 100000 AP
This materia really sucks. Sure, it shields one character from all physical damage and magic type damage. You don't even get this until the Final Dungeon either, so what's the use?
Comet
Comet - 70 MP
Comet 2 - 110 MP
already set
12000 AP
Master - 60000 AP
This is really cool ^^. Big comets hit your enemies (or enemy, for Comet) for big damage, hehe.
Contain
Freeze - 72 MP
Break - 86 MP
Tornado - 90 MP
Flare - 100 MP
already set
5000 AP
10000 AP
15000 AP
Master - 60000 AP
This is one of the coolest materia you can get. Freeze does huge ice type damage, Break huge earth type damage, Tornado huge wind type damage, and Flare huge fire type damage. Hook this up with Quadra magic, and your enemy is through ^^.
Full Cure Full Cure - 99 MP
uh..you need to get 
to second star:
3000 AP
Master - 100000 AP
Again, this is a waste of materia. You get this in that hidden room in Cosmo Canyon's item shop. Cures only one character to full health.
Ultima Ultima - 130 MP
uh...you need to get
to second star:
5000 AP
Master - 100000 AP
This is a really cool spell. It does a huge amount of damage on all enemies in a green death glow ^^.
