Final Fantasy Wiki
X-Potion in Final Fantasy VII.

The highest concentration potion available.

The X-Potion (エクスポーション, Ekusupōshon?), also known as XPotion, X-Cure, and Cure3, is a recurring item in the Final Fantasy series. It usually restores one character's HP to full. Usually unable to be purchased from shops, X-Potions have to be stolen, poached or dropped from enemies, or found in treasure chests. Like Elixirs, Megalixirs and other full recovery items, they have a resale value of only one gil, to discourage players from selling them. The exception to this is in Final Fantasy XII.
