Many of the materia slots in weapons and armor are joined with others. Blue Materia placed into these coupled slots give an added bonus to the materia it is joined with.

There are thirteen different Support Materia in the video game. It takes 1845000 AP to master one blue materia per type; no "master support" materia exists.

In the tables below, Command "main-7" materia refers to the seven materias listed here; these materias are the same ones that have to be mastered in order to get the Master Materia:

  1. Steal
  2. Sense
  3. Throw
  4. Morph
  5. Deathblow
  6. Manipulate
  7. Mime
