Allows you to use revival spells.Description
Revival materia is a Magic Materia in Final Fantasy VII Remake and "Episode INTERmission" equipped to provide the user spells that revive an unconscious character. Raise will revive a character at partial HP, while Arise will revive them at full HP.
In INTERmission, revival materia is sold in the Sector 7 Slums item shop, and all vending machines.

Revival materia grants two revival spells. The base spell, Raise, will revive a character at partial HP, while Arise will revive them at full HP. Arise is therefore more ATB-efficient, as it will revive and fully heal a character in a single ATB use, whereas a curative spell from the Healing Materia will be required to restore a character at full HP otherwise.
In addition to providing spells, revival materia boosts stats, including +2 to max MP, +2 to Magic Attack, +1 to Magic Defense, +1 to Magic attribute, and +1 to Spirit. Because of these boosts revival materia is slightly better on characters built towards spellcasting. This depends on their equipped weapon, though Aerith Gainsborough is often best for this due to her high MP and Magic, as well as the abundance of materia slots in her weapons.
It is best for at least one character to have revival materia equipped, and said character should be durable to keep the party alive. Normally, Aerith and Barret are good candidates, both because they are ranged characters able to avoid damage, because of Aerith's high MP, and because of Barret's high HP and abilities that reduce damage. Equipping the materia provides security in many situations. In the final battles, Cloud is a good candidate for the materia as he partakes in every battle.
Revival materia is one of the slowest materia to level up to Arise, which is a useful spell, and mastering all Magic Materia is needed for a Battle Intel. Revival can be paired with AP Up Materia on a character who equips it.
In INTERmission, revival is only useful on Yuffie, as Sonon is not directly controllable and will use his own health to revive Yuffie if he is the only surviving party member. When Sonon is in the party, revival is a useful equip on Yuffie, especially in hard mode where the player can't use phoenix downs. To level it up, the player can use the AP-growth armor and AP Boost materia.
