Restores life and all HPDescription
Life2 is a restore magic spell in Final Fantasy VII. It is granted by the Revive Materia at level two, and revives a fallen character at full HP. Life2 is a step above Life, which revives a character at a quarter of their max HP, but has a significantly higher MP cost.
|Magic Materia||Revive, Master Magic|
|Effect||Revive a party member with full health.|
|Compatible Support Materia||Added Cut, All, Final Attack, HP Absorb, Magic Counter, MP Absorb, MP Turbo, Quadra Magic, Sneak Attack, Steal as well|
Life2 can be used by characters with the Revive Materia at level 2. It revives a character at full HP. Its main drawback is its huge MP cost at 100, which is significantly greater than casting Life followed by a curative spell below Cure3. This means that, in most cases, it is better to use other curative spells and items.
Life2 is mainly useful against enemies whose attacks can deal more damage than a quarter of a character's health. In this case, Life2 is the safest way to revive a character while guaranteeing they will not immediately be knocked out again. Later on, as characters' MP increases, it will be more affordable to cast Life2 more often.
