Summon Materia.

Single slot. Summon Materia (召喚マテリア, Shōkan Materia?) is a set of Materia in Final Fantasy VII that allows for summoned monsters to be used in equipment and battle for various effects. Summon Materia typically has high stat penalties for equipping them, which they make up for with strong attacks and the ability to use or protect against various status effects and elements. Summon Materia is the only type of Materia that can never be bought. Shiva is the only Summon Materia the player obtains through storyline.

In the PlayStation 4 version the player earns trophies for finding the following Summon Materia: Leviathan, Bahamut, Bahamut ZERO, Knights of Round and Master Summon.

Mechanics[edit | edit source]

Each Summon Materia has five levels. The level of the Materia decides how many times the relevant Summon ability can be cast, with the level matching the number of castings per battle. An exception goes to Master Summon, which grants all summons to be cast an infinite amount of times, while the only limiting factor is the MP available to the summoning character. All Summon Materia sell for 1 gil only, regardless of the Materia level.

The elements given to Summon Materia do not always match the element of the ability the Materia grants. Both Choco/Mog and Typhon are Wind-elemental, while neither grant the user wind-elemental attacks. The Materia's elemental and status attributes can be utilized when paired with Support Materia in a party member's weapon or armor.

The player can only obtain one "fresh" version of every Summon Materia with the exception of Master Summon and Phoenix (due to a programming oversight). Other Summon Materia can be obtained in multiple ways, but the game will only allow the player to have one, so the other methods will be removed. A player can still have multiple versions of the other Summon Materia through mastering.

Etymology[edit | edit source]

Evocation is the act of calling upon or summoning a spirit, demon, god or other supernatural agent, in the Western mystery tradition. Comparable practices exist in many religions and magical traditions and may employ the use of mind-altering substances with and without uttered word formulas.

Materia means "matter" or "substance" in Latin, Spanish and Italian; it also means "subject" in Italian and Spanish, and is the ascendant of Portuguese "Matéria".
