MP Saver: Attack Spells
Bio can be used with the poison materia equipped. Bio can be useful against enemies that resist elements but not magical damage itself, and to poison enemies to inflict passive damage over time. However, many of the party already have abilities that deal non-elemental magical damage without needing to spend MP, like Cloud's Blade Burst or Aerith's normal attacks and various abilities. Bio line of spells are guaranteed to hit, however, making them easy to use.
When paired with Synergy Materia, the synergizing character can safely use the spell against any opponent as Bio spells deal non-elemental damage; the only time this pairing is useless is when the enemy resists magic damage altogether. Synergy materia is especially useful in Final Fantasy VII Remake Intergrade where the spells cast with it are "free".
