Non-Final Fantasy appearancesEdit
Sephiroth uses an attack called Black Materia which shares the animation with Cloud's Meteorain and Zack's Meteo Shots. There is no physical Black Materia seen in the attack, it is only in the attack's name.
Kingdom Hearts seriesEdit
When using his Meteor attack, Sephiroth rises into the air and extends a hand. A red orb of energy with a black aura appears and summons a barrage of meteors to attack Sora. Due to the orb's color, dark aura and power to summon meteors, this may be intended as a reference to the Black Materia.
Materia means "matter" or "substance" in Latin and Spanish. It also means "subject" in Italian and Spanish, and is the ascendant of Portuguese "Matéria".
