- "An extremely large materia."
- —Description, Dissidia 012 Final Fantasy.
The Huge Materia (ヒュージマテリア, Hyūji Materia?) in Final Fantasy VII are extraordinarily powerful Materia, produced in the core of a Mako Reactor. They are extremely high density Materia that have 330 times the power of a regular Materia. The Huge Materia bear an uncanny resemblance to the traditional Crystals of the Final Fantasy series.
When Shinra decides to destroy the Meteor they set out to gather the four Huge Materia and fire them on a rocket into the Meteor. Cloud Strife and the party want the Materia for themselves and attempt to stop Shinra, though the plot continues even if the party is unsuccessful.
Acquiring Huge MateriaEdit
The first Huge Materia is found in North Corel and must be taken from a runaway train. If the party fails, Corel is destroyed, Barret Wallace is blamed for the town's destruction, and the player must pay for the Ultima Materia. If they succeed, Barret is hailed a hero, and the player will get Ultima for free. The second Huge Materia can be found in Fort Condor and is won after the battle minigame. The player does not need to win the minigame, they simply must face the boss that attacks the group. The third is found on the Bottom of the Sea near Junon and can only be found with the submarine. The final one, which was taken from Rocket Town, must be saved from the rocket while in space; the combination required is .
After the party escapes the rocket in an escape pod it will plow into Meteor, but fail to destroy it. Even if the player fails to save the Huge Materia, Shinra's plan will still fail.
Losing a Huge MateriaEdit
Each of the Huge Materia can be missed. If the player fails to stop the train in North Corel, they will miss out on the Materia. If the player loses the minigame in Fort Condor and then loses the subsequent boss battle, they are warped out of the fort and lose the Huge Materia. If the player fails to destroy the red submarine in the submarine minigame, or their submarine is sunk, they will lose the Huge Materia, and finally, if the player fails to guess the code in the rocket they cannot get the Huge Materia there.
If the player loses any one of the Huge Materia, they miss out on the blue Huge Materia. If this happens, the player can still get Bahamut ZERO from Bone Village. If the player loses two Huge Materia they miss out of the red and blue Huge Materia, and if they only manage to save one Huge Materia it will be the yellow one. It is also possible to lose all four.
If all the Huge Materia the player managed to save are gathered and taken to the observatory in Cosmo Canyon, Bugenhagen will let the player store them there. If Cloud has both the Bahamut and Neo Bahamut Summon Materia, they will receive the Bahamut ZERO Materia through the blue Huge Materia. Through the other three, Cloud can gain use of the three Master Materia, but each one comes at a price.
By mastering all of the possible Materia orbs in a specific group — e.g., all green Magic Materia orbs — Cloud can obtain the Master Magic Materia, but will have to sacrifice all the "MASTERED" (fully grown or full stars) normal Materia. Since all mastered Materia immediately "give birth to" or spawn an identical Materia at the basic level (one star), it is possible to have all mastered Materia, as well as the Master Materia. Master Materia does not gain Ability Points.
The three Master Materia are Master Magic (green), Master Command (yellow), and Master Summon (red). Because the Master Command Materia does not possess all the available commands, the player doesn't have to master all Command Materia to get it. Master Materia can be created for an infinite amount of times.
- In Crisis Core -Final Fantasy VII-, Sephiroth uses "SUMMON" that summons four Huge Materia that help him in defense and offense. Similar materia are also fought in the Banora Underground.
- The materia that Genesis uses to trigger the final battle is an extremely large materia that is suggested to require all of the Goddess Materia in order to work, similar in concept to a Huge Materia.
- In Dissidia 012 Final Fantasy, there is a trade material called "Huge Materia".
