Final Fantasy Wiki

Single slot. Steal as well, called Steal As Well in its item receipt line, is a Support Materia in Final Fantasy VII. It can be linked with a wide variety of Materia, including all Magic and Summon Materia, as well as many Command Materia. When linked, it will attempt to steal an item from an enemy, with the same mechanics as the basic Steal command.

Steal as well can be paired with all Magic and Summon Materia, as well as Steal, Sense, Throw, Morph, Deathblow, Manipulate, Mime and Master Command.


Steal as well is found in the Da-chao Statue in Wutai. The only way to obtain multiple Steal as well Materia is to master one. This requires 100000, and the best way to do this is to equip weapons and armor with Double or Triple AP.


Level AP required Effect
1 0 Attempts to steal when linked Materia is used.
2 200000 MASTER


Steal as well will attempt to steal an item from the target after performing a command from the linked Materia. It should be used with offensive Materia, and allows a turn to be used more efficiently. It is a good fit with any Command Materia the player frequently uses in battle. The player may also want to pair it with Magic spells that attempt to apply negative status effects that are not guaranteed to work, or with harmless actions, such as Sense, to ensure that a turn is never wasted. It can also be paired with a level 2 Comet Materia, allowing Comet2 to perform four steal attempts per cast. Pairing Steal as well with Knights of Round, allows for 13 steal attempts.
