Materia are the little magic orbs that give you all your abilities in Final Fantasy 7 Remake. And the new Intermission DLC featuring Yuffie throws a whole new set of Materia at you. To truly master the battle system and fight the super-hard optional battle arena content, you’ll need to level up all the Materia you can find. And there are a few totally new Materia to unlock in Yuffie’s chapters. If you’re looking to earn the ‘Materia Maven’ trophy, this is where to find every Materia in the game.
