Reflect can be used by characters with the Barrier Materia at level 3. It applies the Reflect status, which causes spells cast against the target to be reflected back to the opposing team. This can bounce damaging spells to the opposing team, but will also reflect healing spells. If two opposing targets both have Reflect up, the spells will continuously bounce back and forth until a target's Reflect status runs out after four hits. The spell can be applied to all allies when linking the Barrier Materia with the All Materia.

Reflect can be useful in a few situations, but also detrimental as it means that characters cannot receive support from healing spells. However, in cases where the player may want to reflect spells, it is also possible to just equip the Reflect Ring to apply it automatically.

Reflect can be cast by the enemies Jenova∙LIFE and Gorkii.
