Quina casts Matra Magic.

Switches target's HP and MP.

Matra Magic (マトラマジック, Matora Majikku?), also known as Micro Missiles or Launcher, is a recurring Blue Magic spell. It either does damage equal to a certain percentage of the enemy's HP, or low-powered magic damage.


Final Fantasy VIEdit

VI Launcher fires eight magic missiles at random targets, inflicting damage equal to half their HP with each hit. Its Hit Rate is 100, and cost 20 MP for the enemy to use. It fails on targets immune to Instant Death as well as it ignores defense and Split Damage.

Final Fantasy VIIEdit


Non-elemental damage to all opponents

Matra Magic is an Enemy Skill learned from Custom Sweeper, Bullmotor, and Death Machine. It inflicts light non-elemental damage on all enemies with spell power equal to 0.6875x the base magic damage. Even so, due to its low MP consumption (8 MP) and the earliness in which it can be obtained, Matra Magic is effective in the game's first stages.

Final Fantasy VII: Advent ChildrenEdit

FFVIIAC Kadaj casts a spell similar to Matra Magic while in possession of Cloud's Materia, firing a barrage of blue energy projectiles that spread out and converge on his target.

TA2 Called Matra Magick to bring the spelling in line with Ivalice Alliance standards, it switches the target's HP and MP about 50% of the time.
