Magic Plus is an Independent Materia in Final Fantasy VII. When equipped, it increases the user's Magic stat, which determines their Magic atk stat that itself determines the damage/healing dealt by Magic and Summon spells. It increases by 10% at first level, up to a 50% increase at level 5. The maximum Magic stat is 255.
A Magic Plus Materia is found in the Corel Valley Cave. To obtain more, the player must master one, which requires 50000 AP.

Magic Plus boosts a character's Magic stat. This stat primarily affects their Magic atk, which determines the damage/healing dealt by magical spells or summon attacks. Therefore, Magic Plus is a great choice given to characters who are primarily used for spellcasting.
As Magic Plus is percentage-based, it is most useful when increasing an existing high Magic stat. Cloud, Aeris, Cait Sith, Red XIII, Yuffie, and Vincent have a high Magic stat, making them good choices.
An alternative way to increase Magic is to use Magic Sources. These are rare items, best obtained with Morph on certain enemies. As this is a time-consuming process, it is still better to equip Magic Plus earlier on, providing the player has a slot for it.
