Use[edit | edit source]
Magic Up materia provides a percentage-based boost to a character's magic attribute, which increases their Magic Attack, bettering the effect of Magic Materia, increasing damage from offensive spells or healing from curative spells. For Aerith Gainsborough, it will also amplify the damage that her normal attacks deal.
Aerith will benefit most from equipping Magic Up materia, due to her naturally high magic attribute, abilities like Arcane Ward making her a strong spellcaster, and because it boosts her normal attacks. Cloud has the second-highest magic attribute, making him also a strong choice for the materia. However, Magic Up materia can also benefit Tifa or Barret by helping mitigate their lower magic attributes. If they equip a weapon that gives them a high magic attribute, and are being used for spellcasting more often, they may benefit from the materia to instead boost their naturally low attribute and improve them in this role.
The main drawback to Magic Up materia is that it takes up a materia slot that could be used for another magic or complete materia, such as the arguably more useful HP Up Materia or MP Up Materia. Magic Up materia should only really be equipped against certain encounters where the strategy is heavily reliant on magic use, provided the number of spells is sufficient.
