Remove can be cast by characters with the Exit Materia at level 2. It will remove an enemy from the battle, though no gil rewarded for defeating them. The spell cannot be reflected. It has an extremely high MP cost of 99, and as little reward is provided for defeating them, it should be used sparingly.

Depending on if the enemy has immunity to Remove, the spell either always hits or always misses. It can be useful during Chocobo battles as it removes the legitimate enemies and leaves the Chocobo behind, allowing the player to capture it in one turn. It can also be used effectively with the Support Materia Sneak Attack, causing it to be cast on an enemy before they can do any damage.

In contrast to Death, Remove has a much higher chance of working, but also a much higher MP cost. Death, unlike Remove, provides rewards if successful.
