In Final Fantasy VII all characters can have the same abilities. Each character will always have the basic commands, Attack, Item, Change, and Defend. They also have the Limit command which appears when the unit's LIMIT gauge is full. These are always accessible unless the player is under the Berserk or Confuse statuses. The Magic and Summon skillsets can be obtained by equipping Magic Materia and Summon Materia respectively. All other commands are equipped with Command Materia, with the exception of Slash-All which can also be equipped via the Mega-All Independent Materia as well as its own command.

In the Battle Square the player can have many of these commands temporarily locked. Each type of Materia can be locked thus locking off any command gained from those Materia, and also the Item command is sealed will block use of the Item command.

The Silence status locks the Magic, Summon, and E.Skill commands. The Frog status locks all commands but the four main ones, and Magic, which has had all spells locked other than the Toad spell. Limit will never appear when a character is in this status.
