Firaga costs 21 MP to cast with a level 3 fire materia equipped. It deals twice as much damage compared to the base Fire spell, and 1.25 times more damage compared to the second tier fire spell, Fira. It is the best fire-elemental spell and is useful against higher-level threats, and can easily pressure or stagger enemies, but its higher MP cost and its long casting time mean it should not be relied on too heavily. As a fire spell, Firaga is especially effective against those weak to the fire element, such as humanoid enemies. Compared to its contemporaries—Blizzaga Blizzaga, Thundaga Thundaga, and Aeroga Aeroga—Firaga's spells have a wide damage radius useful for area-of-effect damage against clustered enemies.

Its main drawback is the long casting time, meaning enemies may interrupt characters in the middle the casting it. Firaga should be cast from a safe distance, or against enemies that are already pressured or staggered or stopped. Using Aerith's Lustrous Shield can allow a safe position from which it can be cast, and combining this with her Arcane Ward will cast it twice in succession, making it effective in bursting enemies down.

In addition to being paired with Arcane Ward, Firaga can be amplified by pairing the fire materia with Support Materia Support Materia. In particular, HP Absorption Materia HP Absorption Materia and MP Absorption Materia MP Absorption Materia can be useful pairs to increase a character's sustainability. Pairing it with Magnify Materia Magnify Materia can allow it to hit all enemies, meaning that using Firaga can be a great way to start a battle. This is especially good against certain human groups.
