Final Fantasy VII

Summons




There are 16 Summon Materia in Final Fantasy VII, 17 including Master Summon. They provide the ability to invoke the aid of powerful guardians/beats. Essentially very high-level spells, they cost a lot of MP and have longer animation sequences than standard magics.

Each Summon may only be used finitely many times in one battle. They can be summoned once at the first level, up to five times at the fifth. Master Summon allows you to invoke any of the 16 Summons as many times as you wish.

Some Summons have associated elements or status ailments, meaning that they can be linked with Elemental or Added Effect Materia.
