Use[]

Fira with magnify materia.

Fira costs 10 MP to cast with a level 2 fire materia equipped. It deals 1.5 times more damage than the base Fire spell. The spell is normally useful against medium-level threats, but can have uses against higher-level enemies in some circumstances. As a fire spell, it deals considerable damage ,especially to those weak to the fire element, such as humanoids. Compared to its contemporaries—Blizzara Blizzara, Thundara Thundara, and Aerora Aerora—Fira's strength, in addition to its element, is in dealing area-of-effect damage.

Fira is outclassed by Firaga in terms of raw damage, and Firaga is normally more powerful for both damaging high-level enemies and building up their stagger gauge. Fira's shorter cast time and lower MP cost can make Fira a useful spell to cast nonetheless, used pressure a high-level enemy without expending too much MP.

The spell can be amplified by pairing fire materia with Support Materia Support Materia. HP Absorption Materia HP Absorption Materia and MP Absorption Materia MP Absorption Materia can increase a character's sustainability, allowing the spell to heal the user or to be cast more frequently, respectively. Pairing it with Magnify Materia Magnify Materia allows it to hit all enemies, extremely useful in battles against enemies that are all weak to the element. Using Fira with Aerith's Arcane Ward will cast it twice in succession, making it an effective way to burst down enemies from a distance.
