Summon (red) materia is used to summon several different beasts, each dealing various types and amounts of damage. Summon materia is acquired at different points throughout the game, as outlined in each creature's (or materia's) individual section.

All of the summon materia have 5 stars; each star allows the creature to be summoned in combat once. Thus one-star summon materia can be used once in combat and 5-star one (i.e., mastered one) five times. Master Summon materia can be used to summon all creatures without any limitations.

Summons with added effects[edit]

Probably the most useful ones, because they do more than just dealing damage.

Choco/Mog[edit]

Got from the Chocobo Farm. Talk to the chocobos, and choose the top dialog option ("Wark"). Watch the chocobos dance and you'll receive it.

Ultimate End: The jolly lot of Camelot, the 13 knights of the round table, come forth from some mystical realm or other. Each knight, in turn, smashes each of the enemies for ludicrous amount of damage (up to 9999 points each, for a grand total of up to 129,987 points of damage, not accounting for armor and other protections). Each of these attacks has different damage type.


Master Summon[edit]

The wielder of Master Summon is able to use all Summon spells, and it takes only one Materia slot. It can be obtained by getting each of the other Summon Materias to master level and touching the Huge Red Materia in Bugenhagen's laboratory. Alternatively, it can be obtained by defeating the Emerald Weapon and trading the Earth Harp on Kalm.


Summary table[edit]

Default sorting is according to game progression. Materia that can be permanently missed is highlighted in red. The yellow W-summon materia is included in this list because it only affects red Summon materia.
