Final Fantasy 7 Remake Materia Location Guide

Final Fantasy 7 Remake Materia Location Guide
Want to find and unlock all Materia in FF7R? This Final Fantasy 7 Remake Materia Location Guide lists all of the locations of the Materia we have discovered on our adventure, split into Chapters so you can collect each piece of vital Materia as you progress through the game.

Materia is a powerful form of magic that lets you equip special items to your characters. Each Materia is different with some increasing basic stats while others provide brand new abilities and magical spells to use. Some Materia, specifically Summon Materia, can even allow you to summon hugely powerful allies to aid you in combat. Cloud begins with Fire Materia, which is not included for obvious reasons, and DLC Materia has its own section.
