However, everything comes with a cost. Firstly, Magical Punch has a higher up-front AP cost. Hence, it’s a risky investment that you should only use when no better Materia is available.

Additionally, this Materia sacrifices AP. Hence, it will not only cost more AP but deplete it the more you use it.

How to Get Magical Punch

Magical Punch can easily be acquired by clearing missions. You can get it as a reward for completing the “Wutai Suppression” and “Experiment No. 120” missions. Moreover, you can also get the Magical Punch Materia by completing the “Genesis’s Super Weapon” quest.

Additionally, Magical Punch can be found in chests during completing specific missions. “The “Arms Development Dept.” and “Twins in the Caverns” missions are the best for finding Magical Punch. However, you can also find the Materia during the “Shinra Machines Unit” mission.

  • Level 2: +10% MP
  • Level 3: +10% MP

  • Cost: 64 MP
  • Rank: 6
  • Effect: Regenerates all of Zack’s HP.

Full Cure is a pretty simple yet highly effective healing Magic Materia. It fully restores your HP and lets you last longer in battle.

Along with that, Full Cure grants you SPR bonuses each time you level it up. SPR stands for Spirit and grants you magical defense. Hence, not only does Full Cure restore your HP but also makes you stronger against magic attacks.

How to Get Full Cure

Due to its potent ability, Full Cure is a bit harder to get. You can only find it when it is dropped by Magic Pot during the M7-6-6 mission You must appease the Magic Pot to get this Materia. You can also find the Full Cure if you steal it from the Magic Pot or Goliath.

Since it cannot be found as a reward for completing missions or in chests, it’s quite a rare find. Additionally, it can’t be found in any shop. Moreover, you cannot make Full Cure through fusion.

  • Effect: Hits all enemies with a bright blinding flash of light. The Materia takes a long time to cast and cannot be Dualcast.

However, as compared to the Flare, it deals more damage. Additionally, it grants you higher MP bonuses the more you level it up. But that comes with a cost: it has a higher MP price than Flare.

How to Get Ultima

Ultima can be obtained after clearing the “Chase the Copies” mission. Additionally, you can find it in chests when completing certain missions. You’ll find the Ultima Materia when completing the “New Species Found” and “Secret in the Caverns” missions.

And that’s not all. You can also find it during the “The Lowest Tier” and “The Melancholy Don” missions. Finally, you can also steal the Ultima Materia from Tycoon.

If you don’t want to go through all that trouble, you can also craft Ultima by combining Energy with Libra. Additionally, you can make Ultima by combining any DMW with Tri-Fire, Electrocute, Flare, Tri-Thundaga, or Energy.

In case you don’t know Moogles are cute koala-like creatures that cast Regen on you. The Regen lasts for 40 seconds initially but can scale up to 100 seconds at level 4. And on level 5, it lasts for as long as the battle lasts.

Along with Regen, Moogles also level up all your Materia. The upgrade that your Materia gets depends on the level of Moogle Power. For instance, if you have level 3 Moogle Power, your Materia get boosted by 3 levels immediately.

How to Get Moogle Power

Moogle Power can be bought from the Junon Souvenirs shop for 10,000 Gil. This is the only way to obtain the Moogle Power Materia. You cannot get it from monster drops or loots. And you cannot find it on any missions, not even in chests.

  • Level 3: +20% MP
  • Level 4: +20% MP

  • Type: Support
  • Cost: None
  • Rank: 4
  • Effect: Prevents any status effect that matches with the effects of the Materia equipped.

Status Ward works best when paired with Materia that inflict multiple status effects, such as Hell Firaga and Hell Blizzaga.

Curaga is a Magic Materia that heals a significant amount of Zack’s HP. It’s a healing Materia that doesn’t cost a lot. If you’re running out of HP and don’t want to black out, you should use the Curaga Materia.

However, unlike the Full Cure Materia, it doesn’t grant you full health. Hence, it’s a relatively weaker Materia but it’s still useful for healing HP.

How to Get Curaga

Curaga can be found as a reward for clearing the “Experient No. 107” mission. Additionally, you can find it hidden in chests along many missions like “The Melancholy Don” and “Treasure Info 1”.

Moreover, the Curaga Materia can be found while completing the “A Director’s Request” and “Only for SOLDIER” missions.

Curaga can also be found dropped by the Wutai Imperial Guards, Mandrakes, and Green Grass. Finally, you can also steal Curaga from Razor Weed and Angra Mainyu. It’s a pretty common Materia that’s perfect for restoring health.

  • Cost: 33 MP
  • Rank: 7
  • Effect: Hits the enemy multiple times in a row.

Energy is one of the most powerful Materia that deals extraordinary amounts of damage at a lower MP cost. It deals damage to a single enemy multiple times, perfect for taking down opponents with more HP or defense.

This Magic Materia also grants you significant MP growth. But level 3 doesn’t grant you any MP growth. Nevertheless, this is a powerful Materia for taking down enemies in a short amount of time.

How to Get Energy

Energy is fairly easy to find. You can find it in chests while completing missions like “City Planning Dept.” and “Genesis’s New Weapon“. You can also find it during the “A Recruiter’s Close Call” mission.

But if you don’t want to go pillaging through chests, you can also get the Materia as a reward for completing certain missions. You can get the Energy Materia by completing the “Tarantula Test” and “Whatever Stands in Your Way” missions.

Additionally, after you complete the “A New Path Discovered” and “Excavation Site Survey” missions, you can get the Energy Materia.

Lastly, when you destroy Explosive, you can steal the Energy Materia from it. But if all of that is too much work for you, then you can always make Energy through fusion.

Simply fuse Flare with Libra, Tri-Fire, Iron Fist, Goblin Punch, Magical Punch, Dash, or Tri-Thundaga. Additionally, combining Libra with Electrocute will grant you the Energy Materia.

Bonus Attribute Growth

  • Level 1: +10% MP
  • Level 2: +20% MP
  • Level 3: 0 MP
  • Level 4: +10% MP

Along with that, it grants bonus attribute growth to your magic power. Hence, it’s a powerful damage-dealing Materia that also increases your damage as you level it up.

How to Get Quake

Despite its usefulness in battle, Quake is relatively easier to find. It can be bought directly from the Wutai Secret Shop for 18,000 Gil. It’s a bit costlier than other Materia, but it’s totally worth the higher price.

Additionally, you can find it in chests as you clear missions like “Behind the Scenes” and “S.O.S.?“. The Quake Materia can also be stolen from the Grand Horn when defeating it.

You can also buy it from the Bone Village Commerce shop. Additionally, fusing Gravity with any DMW will give you the Quake Materia. Darkness and Libra also give you the Quake Materia, as do Electrocute and Darkness.

  • Cost: None
  • Rank: 8
  • Effect: Deals 38 base damage, ignoring the enemy’s Vitality while also consuming Zack’s HP. This Materia takes some time to hit and its damage scales as Zack’s HP depletes.

The best Materia in Final Fantasy Crisis Core Reunion is Costly Punch. It deals damage to the enemy while ignoring all of the enemy’s Vitality. In case you don’t know, Vitality practically works like physical defense. Costly Punch will ignore the enemy’s defense and deal a significant amount of damage to the target.

However, this powerful Materia comes with a hefty cost: Zack’s HP. You must sacrifice 1.6% of your HP to deal damage. Luckily, as Zack’s HP decreases, the power output of Costly Punch also grows.

This Materia lets Zack increase his damage cap to 99,999, which would otherwise be near impossible. However, if you have the Break effect on your HP and your HP is higher than the base HP, then Costly Punch will deal 0 damage.

Considering this, Costly Punch is an exceptionally powerful Materia. When played right, Costly Punch will grant you a massive advantage in battle.

How to Get Costly Punch

You can find Costly Punch if you steal it from Mako Ifrit. However, you’ll need to wait till later on in the game to get the Materia. And even then, there is only a 50% chance of acquiring it from the monster during the M9-5-1 mission.

You can also find the Materia when completing the “Abnormal Power” quest near the South-Easet side of the area. Finally, Costly Punch can be obtained after you complete 55% of all side-quests.

Alternatively, you can also craft the Materia by combining the DMW Materia with any of the 4 Punch accessories. These accessories include the Iron Fist, Magical Punch, Hammer Punch, or Goblin Punch. Through this method, you can acquire the Materia earlier on in the game.
