Mount Bervenia Cloud Materia

Cloud finding his blade at Bervenia Volcano.

Materia crystals have been fused into the blade of this sword.

The Materia Blade (マテリアブレード, Materia Burēdo?) is a recurring weapon in the Final Fantasy series appearing in every Tactics game so far. The blade is a reference to Materia from Final Fantasy VII, though no such weapon ever appears in that title or its subsequent Compilation. The blade itself, while referencing Materia, may also represent Cloud Strife's Ultima Weapon.

It can be stolen off the Mog Knight in Mission #20: Present Day (however, it is a random steal and the Mog Knight's initial weapon must be stolen for the Materia Blade to appear) and as a reward for a "Town-Town-Forest-Forest" Treasure Hunt. The weapon also provides +15 Magic and +10 Resistance.

Materia means "matter" or "substance" in Latin and Spanish. It also means "subject" in Italian and Spanish, and is the ascendant of Portuguese "Matéria".


  • When in the party roster in Final Fantasy Tactics, if the player selects Cloud's name he will say "It is concealed at the top of the volcano!" hinting to the location of the Materia Blade.
