Summon Materia is a type of Materia used to gain access to the Summon command to call powerful monsters to attack a group of enemies.


Final Fantasy VIIEdit

Each Summon Materia has five levels. The level of the Materia decides how many times the relevant Summon ability can be cast, with the level matching the number of castings per battle. An exception goes to Master Summon which grants all summons to be cast an infinite amount of times, while the only limiting factor is the MP available to the summoning character.

All Summon Materia sell for 1 gil only, regardless of the Materia level.

The elements given to Summon Materia do not always match the element of the ability the Materia grants. Both Choco/Mog and Typhon are Wind-elemental, while neither grant the user wind-elemental attacks.

The player can only obtain one "fresh" version of every Summon Materia with exception to Master Summon and Phoenix (due to a programming oversight).[A] Other Summon Materia can be obtained in multiple ways, but the game will only allow the player to have one so the other methods will be removed. A player can still have multiple versions of the other Summon Materia through mastering.

  • A - Phoenix is the only regular Summon Materia (excluding Master Summon) that can be obtained twice. Phoenix is ordinarily obtained after winning the Fort Condor Huge Materia mission, however the player can avoid picking up the Materia whenever he or she wants. After the Raid on Midgar (start of Part 3), the player can obtain the Phoenix Materia from Bone Village if he or she has not obtained it from Fort Condor. If the player were to excavate the Phoenix Materia, he or she could return to Fort Condor and pick up a second Phoenix Materia.

Crisis Core -Final Fantasy VII-Edit

VIICC Summon Materia

Zack picking up a summon materia.

In this game, Summon Materia is not used in battle - acquiring a Summon Materia adds the summon's portrait to the Digital Mind Wave, and it is then summoned into battle automatically when its portrait lines up on the reels. Besides the normal Summon Materia, other traditional summons can be acquired to the DMW, but they are acquired by collecting items other than Materia.

The DMW differentiates between these two types of summons by grouping those acquired through methods other than Materia into "Chocobo Mode". As with all DMW attacks, the power of the Summon depends on the attack level.

Ifrit Clear Mission 8-1-1 Hellfire - Magical attack on all enemies that ignores Spirit. 52 56 60 64 77

  • Summon Materia are the only type of Materia that can never be bought in Final Fantasy VII.
  • Shiva is the only Summon Materia the player obtains through storyline in Final Fantasy VII. Despite this it can still be missed, as if one's Materia inventory is full at the moment it's meant to be given the player will not be given the Materia, and instead can optionally pick it up later.
  • If the player's Materia inventory is full, the Kujata Materia will be lost forever. Usually if a player attempts to pick up a Materia when the inventory is full, the game will notify the player and ask them to remove Materia first. Due to poor programming this never happens with Kujata; the player merely receives the message that they have acquired the Materia, but upon entering the Materia inventory the Materia is not there, as there was no room to place it in.
