Curaga (ケアルガ, Kearuga?, lit. Carega), also known as Cure3, Cure 3, and Cure III, is a recurring healing spell from the Final Fantasy series. It is a more powerful form of Cure and Cura, which is used to restore a large amount of Hit points.
In the Japanese versions of Final Fantasy, Final Fantasy III, Final Fantasy IV, and Final Fantasy XII, what is called Curaga in English is originally Curada (ケアルダ, Kearuda?, lit. Careda), while the legitimate Curaga becomes the fourth tier Cure spell. The localization staff retained the suffix -"ga" for third tier spells in general, with the fourth tier Cure spell becoming Curaja. This change was not done in Bravely Default. Curada is usually localized as Curaga when the game has four tiers of the spell Cure, with the actual Curaga being the top tier.
Curaga is an advanced White Magic spell, usually obtained in the later parts of the game. In most of the recent Final Fantasy games, a single-target cast of Curaga fully recovers HP. Curaga appears in all Final Fantasy main series games besides Final Fantasy XV, which doesn't have healing spells.

Non-Final Fantasy AppearancesEdit
Kingdom Hearts seriesEdit
Curaga, along with its lower tier spells Cure and Cura, appears as a spell in the series. Just like in the Final Fantasy series, the spell recovers HP when used. In Kingdom Hearts 358/2 Days, Curaga has been specialized to provide area-of-effect healing to the player and their allies, while in Kingdom Hearts Birth by Sleep, both a standard Curaga and a Group Curaga alternative are available.
The word curaga distinctly means "to take charge" or "to take responsibility" or "manage" in Latin. In several Eastern European languages, including Russian, Ukrainian, and Lithuanian, the word curaga can be translated as "dried apricots."
In the Final Fantasy series naming tradition, starting from Final Fantasy VIII, the -ga suffix is added to spell names to denote the third and often the highest level of that type of spell.
