Imbue with a magical area that deals ice damage on contact.


Algid Aura is an enemy ability that can be used with Enemy Skill Materia Enemy Skill Materia in Final Fantasy VII Remake. It surrounds the user with an aura that deals Ice Ice damage to the nearby enemies it hits. It can be learned from cerulean drakes.

Algid Aura is a new Enemy Skill ability, which did not appear in the original Final Fantasy VII.

Obtained[edit | edit source]

Cerulean drakes are prominently fought during the sidequest "Just Flew In from the Graveyard" in chapter 3, "Home Sweet Slum". They are later fought in chapter 15, "The Day Midgar Stood Still", in earlier quests. A character must have Enemy Skill equipped and sustain damage from Algid Aura, which the cerulean drakes use randomly, for a chance to learn it.

Use[edit | edit source]

Algid Aura surrounds the user with ice damage, which biological enemies are vulnerable to. As it is a close-range ability, it is best suited to Cloud and Tifa who fight in melee range.

Algid Aura can be a substitute for an Elemental Materia Elemental Materia + Ice Materia Ice Materia combo on weapons, and is more slot-efficient.
